CHECK OUT AN EXCERPT FROM OUR ARCHIVES, A SIT DOWN WITH THE LEGENDARY JAZ-O!
G: How has the industry changed since you first began? Do you think Hip Hop is dead or was it never gone to begin with?
"J: Hip Hop is SO alive right now. It never left, nor did it die and resurrect! Everything that evolves goes through a state of unrest, then slumber-not death, to re-awaken as something more! Something better-the best of all it was in addition to the deletion of the defect. Okay the industry answer: the people with the money stopped investing in the "classic" Hip Hop, or the aspect of the music genre based on lyrical content. Whether gangster or socially conscious, they worked to destroy music that would cause you to use your brain to enjoy."
