On this episode which is highly unapologetic i discuss the  duality of ignorance in hip hop and what it costs us. The ill in formed ‘people’ will say what they want and how they want. They include the fans, the ‘I hate UG Hip Hop‘ type of individuals and the rappers themselves. Well you guessed right this on this episode non of them escapes! We can’t know everything but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have the need to know. Everyday we should learn something in order for barber shop discussions to flourish with informed domes. That said listening to this episode its only one question you should ponder about: How much of Ugandan hip hop do you know?

Everyday we should learn something in order for barber shop discussions to flourish with informed domes.

Those who know nothing about the genre will always stereo type any thing, be it poetry, spoken word and of course hip hop. Don’t be surprised when they limit the genre to sex, drugs, thug life  i mean people say anything and you know its pain full because a lot of creative work will be ignored.

The premier of Beautiful day Benny Black ft Essie closes this one Enjoy!

Episode 6 Description:

SHAWN get furious on every one who uses ignorance as an excuse and attacks the so-called ‘i don’t like the genre’ type of people who speak with an ill-informed mind. The rappers too who ignore the fifth element or rather one of the most important elements of hip hop. And so the premier of Beautiful day by Benny Black ft ESSIE is the melody to meditate on.
