FTESWL sits down with David who talks to them about two articles he has written. When did Hip Hop transition over from hustler to customer? The molly craze where rappers are rapping more about poppin pills than making money off dealing it. Reading this article below and it got us thinking. “A foreigner in the Home that the 80’s Built — The Story of Hip-Hop in 2016. We talk about how Future and Lil Wayne have spawned all these clones who copy what they think is the blueprint to success. https://medium.com/@David.Raskin/a-foreigner-in-the-home-that-the-80-s-built-the-story-of-hip-hop-in-2016-ea138dd3592e#.bj289c53u
Starting at the 55:39 mark the article about “America’s NWA: Sports IS a Magnifying Glass” puts you in a place where you can categorize David’s son and model him after three players.
1. Richard Sherman
2. Marshawn Lynch
3. Cam Newton
We 3 try to take on why isn’t Cam Newton getting fully embraced by the media why is there such a backlash with how he celebrates or how he chooses to lead a team who has only lost 1 game and on their way to the Super Bowl. Why is it when Tom Brady yells and spike a ball after a TD it’s passion but if Cam Newton or anybody else does it, it’s disruptive. Is Cam and Russel Wilson a new wave of QB’s who are not just a duel threat but are successful at doing it as well.
