There is nowhere in the cultural landscape of America you can turn to where you do not see the influence of Hip Hop. Modern dance, art, poetry, etc. all borrow HEAVILY from Hip Hop.

Awe, well right back at ya buddy. Trust me you are not about to rock my world with you miraculous insight into what I know and don't know, how can you, it's impossible unless you are a mind-reader, lol.

Brooklyn devastates... absolutely devastates SF when it comes to rap and hip-hop. It's like King Kong versus and ant. SF isn't even on the hip-hop radar, all their 'stars' are local.

Its real world effect? How things are marketed. It has also caused millions to take to the street, mobilize politically, and pool their resources to create lasting endowments to challenge institutional racism and our fundamental distribution of power and wealth.

No, wait. Its caused none of that.

Comparing the Harlem Shake to turfing is like comparing Soulja Boy to Nas. It really is.

Again, continue to expose your own ignorance... you don't even sound like an actual Hip Hop fan, you sound like a bandwagoner. You probably can't even name 20 Brooklyn rappers rofl.

Um, call me then. Pretty impressive that the '4th largest city in America' only went 50+ years without a sports team. Definite sign of a stand-alone city.

New York City overall yes. Brooklyn in particular, no. And no need to feel bad for SF, its doing just fine.

Whats important about hip hop, is there some big social movement reliant on hip hop? Isnt it just r&b by a new name. I do dismiss it, and there is no peril. Country sells as much as hip hop, do you dismiss it? Rock sells more than hiphop, country, and pop combined, do you dismiss it?
