With the unfortunate incidents in Ferguson, MO and the untimely death of Michael Brown, Hip Hop has once again has been blamed for the perpetuation of violence in the African-American community. But, is it right to point the finger at music? Do the lyrics in Hip-Hop need to change?
HipHollywood asked several musicians those questions while at the BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards. Many of music’s top stars hit the carpet to see Ludacris receive the prestigious President’s Award, but they also wanted to shed light on hip-hop’s real role in the Black community.
Luda not only walked away with the night’s top honor, he also got the crowd moving with a medley of his greatest hits including “Fantasy,” “How Low Can You Go,” “Southern Hospitality,” “Area Codes,” and “Yeah,” joined by special guest Mystikal. The evening also featured a slew of performances including rapper TeeFlii and DJ Goofy, Tamar Braxton and a special set by DJ Mustard and YG.
