Everyday Enlightenment: Market for Niggas by Talaam Acey

Todays enlightenment is brought to you by a Spoken Word artist named Talaam Acey. He is well known and well documented for his aggressive stance towards the negative Rap Community (Not real Hip Hop, which he supports). The video requires little explanation but will cause much conversation which is its purpose and the reason for me including it in "Everyday Enlightenment".

Understand what he is talking about and think about what type of ignorance you are supporting. Hip Hop was created over 30 years ago as a form of expression and a new way to create music, often showing little to no promise for its performers in terms of long term success. It has since turned into a billion dollar business controlled by people who could care less how these performers make themselves as well as the rest of our people (African Americans) look. If the message Mr.Acey is speaking bothers you and you want to do something about it. Stop supporting these artist that don't support us, stop buying these albums talking about nothing, stop watching these videos exploiting lives these people really don't live, and stop attending these shows. The more you support the things they do the more of a reason they have to do it and more of a reason these record labels have to go find the next idiot willing to do the same thing to himself for a little fame and fortune. Feel free to respond and until we speak again PEACE
