An interesting manifesto of sorts of hip-hop...

Just want to say we appreciate the pub on our blog. We've added a link to your page as well.

We wouldn't characterize the blog as a manifesto so much as forum to exchange ideas about how politics, particularly the struggles of working people, intersect with culture and music.

A manifesto conjures up ideas of a program of sorts. We think this is precisely the problem of "hip-hop intellectuals"; that they are making vain attempts to doctrinize a living, breathing organism.

Thank you again and keep reading.
