DRAMA Enterprises was a NY LLC formed in 1997. At that time we were located in Brooklyn, NY. Shout out to everyone who was down with that whole movement!
The Golden Era of Hip-Hop was not as golden as everyone would have you believe. In the 90’s some people were missing the Motown Era’s softer sound in Hip-Hop music. The kind of music today’s rappers get criticized for. Almost everyone was supposedly hard core and if you grew up in the hood you knew that was mathematically impossible. So somebody was FRONTING, everybody couldn’t be a gangster. I say that to say this; allot of MC’s were just lying on records. That was totally unacceptable at that time because Hip-Hop’s slogan was “keep it real”. However, today history reports that they were just talking about what they saw in their neighborhoods, so that gets a pass. Real Hip-Hop MC’s on the other hand were living the lyrics in their songs. That was the main controversy in Hip-Hop at that time. I would say real MC’s are the reason for some of society’s social and political changes, because they told their stories from an honest place. There are millions of these records online because not all of them were able to capture their dream of success. This track is a tribute to Hip-Hop paving the way.
