Global Fusion Playlist: Ghana Cypher:BET FINALLY RECOGNIZES ITS AFRICAN ROOTS

Congratulations to BET for finally recognizing that Black Entertainment is beyond 50 states. Thanks for finally listening & Welcome to the MOTHERLAND! A mother will always welcome her children no matter how far they stray! SANKOFA!

I am glad to see Ghana being “repped” by the female MC’s- Big Ups to Baby G, Abrewa Nana, Mzbel,Tiffany, Eazzy, Sena & the Liberian girls living in GH that were coming with the fire lyrics  a la Lil’ Kim/Nicki Minaj style back in 08 outside of Honeysuckle! A matriarchal nation should always have females in the mix to reach its full SHINE! Hip-Hop has always been global, so I am glad that those who slept on the continent & refused to recognize that Africa is the Beginning & The Future are finally catching on. The Grandpapa, Reggie Rockstone showed he is not ready to retire anytime soon & is truly the Godfather of Hip-Life (Ghana’s hip-hop-blend between traditional Hi-life music of Ghana & hip-hop). I am proud of my people & proud of my nation. Ya’ll Went HARD-FUFU FIYA!!! Black Stars Keep Rising! Mek U Talk True!

‎”Those of you who are familiar with my Hip-Hoppreneur ™ columns and perspective know that I do not bite my tongue on where I believe the industry is headed. One of several provocative conclusions that I have come to is that the influence that all of us in the United States have had over the Hip-Hop culture and industry is rapidly ending. It will be replaced in many ways by the creative energy coming from regions of the world like Central and South America and Africa, whose socio-economic conditions in many ways are closer to the original essence of Hip-Hop as it manifested in New York City neighborhoods in the 1970s.Another major factor at work which I believe will eventually move the throne of the industry elsewhere is the rapid economic development of Africa and its cultural diversity. As technological, economic and physical infrastructure is built in Africa, and as income levels rise, the ability to monetize creative works (make money from them) and offerings tied to music will grow so fast it will make your head spin..Decision-makers and entrepreneurs will have to have a presence on the ground not just in New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles but also cities like Cairo, Egypt; Johannesburg, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria; Accra, Ghana; Nairobi Kenya; and Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.” READ MORE
