    Thanks for saying what you said LL. You know where else is supporting Hip Hop pioneers, the players, and the artists on the come up? The Universal Hip Hop Museum. http://uhhm.org
    Maybe you’ll interview the folks who work there on your Sirius show. Thanks. Peace.

    I’m so glad to hear LL speaking on the messages given in rap. They have so much power to uplift, defend and educate; molding the minds of the young and bringing needed attention to different societal isdues. To those coming up, please be thoughtful in your lyrics. What you are truly capable of is not just making money.

    What this very good interview lacks is a location of or link to the program LL made. Not too late to add that to the description.

    I’m white and I’m saying black people need more recognition because my people have too much recognition everyone needs to know that BLACK LIVES MATTER FOREVER

    Trevor genuinely looked like he was fanning out over L.L. talking to him and you can see the excitement on his face.

    Hey LL Cool J. Remove that portrait on “your” upper right. I am not sure, but it’s look like the Myanmar leader.
    Hey Trevor, tell him about the portrait, probably he had it after she got the Nobel prize, now she is accused of ethnic cleansing

    I agree LL. I don’t want whitewashed music. I want the real deal that we hear when a brother pushes his AUTHENTIC music at the corner store. If you’re from the hood, you wanna hear the kind of stuff your homeboys freestyle about. Not what white corporations THINK we wanna hear.

    I get what he’s trying to articulate… by you can’t compare the mona lisa… a master piece of a painting that is not fully understood how it was even made, to just some random creation joe-shmoe made. Also, creator who made was a polymath – one the rarest forms of genius, some one excels far beyond the capacity of a normal person in multiple fields of study. Some one who is not just an artist or creator, but some one whose existence as a whole, elevated humanity as a result of the absolute enormity of their contributions to society as a whole. You are talking about the work Leonardo Da’vicini, who in all regards would be a genius even amongst other geniuses and comparing it 80s/90s hip hop? And not only that, comparing you presenting what by all accounts is now ‘oldies’ to the current generation as fresh to that? Like is he really comparing his radio show’s presentation of others work, to the mona lisa? Fucking seriously?

    If you want to make that comparison, and make it apt, select either an accomplished artist of color or a brilliant timeless work they’ve accomplished. Don’t make some clumsy ass comparison to a radio show. There are PLENTY of accomplish black artists that making a meaningful comparison is possible, but this clumsy as shit, where he half ass compares some fucking commentary to a timeless piece of artwork – get the fuck out of here with that noise.

    Its like saying well “e=mc^2 is great, but we have some accountants over here too.” And its like dude… that equation is responsible for shaping the world as we know it. Apples and fucking oranges. Your comparison is just… like not fucking prudent.

    African Americans artist can contribute positively to the growth and development of African American communities. I wish that they can come together and donate some of the proceeds they make in the music industry to help uplift African American communities through Scholarships, building of schools with sufficient resources, bursaries for African Americans aspiring teachers who will return to black communities after graduating. It is really sad to see that there is NO TRANSFORMATION in corporate America and that Black people and other people of colour are being discriminated because their names are not WHITE or do not sound WHITE. I happy to see that there are white people who see the injustice and are fighting for equality. And would to thank all those Americans who protested against the Apartheid Government in South Africa. #BLM #America #SouthAfrica.
