‘Yo Mos, what’s gettin ready to happen with Hip-Hop?’
(Where do you think Hip-Hop is goin?)
I tell em, “You know what’s gonna happen with Hip-Hop?
Whatever’s happening with us”
If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out
If we doin alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doin alright
People talk about Hip-Hop like it’s some giant livin in the hillside
comin down to visit the townspeople
We (are) Hip-Hop
Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop
So Hip-Hop is goin where we goin
So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is goin
ask yourself.. where am I goin? How am I doin?
Til you get a clear idea
Mos Def, “Fear Not Of Man”
Where will our movement go? Our ideals of social change aren’t “some giant livin in the hillside comin down to visit the townspeople”. We are change.

Now they know they invincible
Kanye West, “Champion”
…I guess this is one of the reasons rap is so popular: makes a person who feels insignificant feel tough, confident, even invincible…

Solidarity man… R.I.P.
