NWA and the end of the innocence of Hip Hop

I had a conversation with a White guy who is a Hip hop fanatic from back in the day.What he said confirmed my long suspicions.He told me that NWA tip the balance and control of Hip Hop to White America.He told me before they came out Hip Hop had pro black themes that White people did not monetize on any large scale.After NWA, the Rap Industry saw the writing on the wall, little Billy in Kansas is buying reality rap or gangster rap, but not Tribe Call Quest. Along comes PDiddy to answer the void.And then he gave us Biggie, the rest is history.What started as something for Black and Latino youths in America was effecting youth around the world.Now after 25 years of Gangster rap, real Hip hop break dancing is only seen outside of America.
