I came across an interview that Former BET executive Paul Porter where he discusses today’s mainstream commercial hardcore rap music has detrimentally effected the minds & behaviors of today’s youth. During this two part interview Porter gives in depth insight from a perspective of someone who has worked on the highest level of broadcasting & seen the transition of what is perpetuated in music, movies, television, & other entertainment outlets & how they are truly influencing the minds of our youth today. Paul also discusses the HIGHLY controversial Rick Ross rape infused lyric from his feature on Rocko’s U.O.E.N.O. Below are the links to parts 1 and 2 of the interview and I highly recommend that everyone take a listen to Paul’s amazing insight.

RenCenCoolBeanz has just dropped his latest project and if I had to sum it up in one word it would simply be PHENOMENAL. The album is 32 pulse pounding Hip Hop tracks infused with a rock soul feel and recorded in complete surround sound which results in a truly unique listening experience. RenCen enlists the help of a few up and coming soulful and talented Detroit artist throughout the album to truly add another dimension to the project and bring a new flavor to conventional Hip Hop for a sound that Is simply amazing and one that must be heard at loud volumes with quality listening equipment. This an album that tells a story from track 1 all the way to track 32 and it is sure to have you zoned out and vibing while the unmistakable sounds of real live instruments takes your listening mind to another wave length. Congratulations to RenCen for stepping outside of the box and delivering a truly great album. you can find this album along with the entire collective of RenCen’s music on his bandcamp page http://rencencoolbeanz.bandcamp.com/ and on Itunes.
Lastly I must send my respects to RenCen who recently announced that August 25th, 2012 Detroit will host the Every Music festival which will be put together by RenCen and Jelly. Thank you for giving Detroit artist our own platform to shine and put our craft on display in our backyard.
