Hip Hop @ sammmoxo will never be bereft of the Blacks and Latinos whom the music/culture was/is for but here's the thing, White (and/or Jewish, two different races) people have been A&R, label execs, etc. since the beginning but there is a diff between the Dante Ross and Faith Newman and Wendy Day (she is responsible for Cash Money's legendary deal and is "one of the good ones" follow her on IG at thisiswendyday and her husband Tony Guidry at iamthaconnect on IG) types and the suburban people of the current era whose only interaction w/Black people is meme/Internet culture.

I'm not confused as to what Hip Hop has been, once was and is now but the best way to define a "culture" is "transferring knowledge, ways (lifestyle), etc. to and from a people" and if much of what is passed down musically is ignorance, lack of knowledge (of self, and I don't mean in the "faux conscious" sense many rappers dabble(d) in but moreso Maslow "self actualization"), glorification of social ills then Hip Hop is as far from a culture than it has ever been.
