Allhiphop Week:
The Social Lounge with Dr. Cornel West

Allhiphop Social Lounge

Those who made it out to Allhiphop’s Social Lounge Panel with Dr. Cornel West seen something beautiful. If you missed it don’t fret cause we at PMD got some footage and pics for yah!

The panelists were Radio personality Wendy Williams, Rapper’s David Banner, Pharoahe Monch, Master P and Dr. Cornel West. The panel touched on the war against Hip Hop, Politics, Racism and many other ills that affect the culture and youth today. Each speaker made great points throughout the discussion. Two heads that kept buckin’ were Master P and David Banner. Cleary on polar opposities but in the same fight the brothers tried to understand where each one came from. After the discussion Saigon came through and performed for the audience. Overall I left there with a new breath of air and a renowned sense of purpose. I need to get up on my book knowledge Dr. West has put out and so should you. Some think of him as a radical of sorts but I feel his words are the gap between the old and young. Anyway, enjoy the footage we got and the pics, hopefully you will get something from it too.

    Any chance that they could ever get someone who is significant in the rap game to attend these summits? David Banner & Saigon are not and Wendy Williams is a married 40 year old women who is syndicated on a r&b station. I suggest Kanye, Jay-Z, Puffy, Common, Fifty, T.I. (as wonderfully ignorant as he proved himself to be going at Oprah), etc.

    Largely Master P and Banner are having a maturity stage disagreement and Platform agreement. First, Banner stage of understanding is from the black man on the grind where by condemning rap music by its use of language are restricting the opportunity for artists and people to express openly and make a living..when others have profited in the past. But, just like the drug game there are always long-term ramifications in thinking short sighted in a country where the family is broken. Materialism is always the issue. P has Seen the effects of making quick money at the price of placing a microscope on the disenfranchised and Large corporations are profiting in the long term…Experience shows you this…

    Second, The platform for black people having opposing views is never in house. No other group does this. Mr Sharpton was wrong in making this a national display….Rappers press no records. David Banner was wrong because if you have a disagreement in opinion the “realness” is to sitdown down and discuss it. Respect is Fine, but opposing a view can be respectful.
    stop showing so much division to the world you are part of the problem…

    The point of that show was to address some of the issue young people have to deal with in this day and age. It would have been great for more visable entertainers were available to voice there opinion but what was good about this show was that the people were being honest and it helped bring attention to some ish but also because it

    @ Jay ‘not very’ Smart: When we start blaming other people, for distributing our own in-studio crafted garbage, then we admit that we are idiots who belong in the zoo (where intelligent human beings can guide,feed & monitor us). Jimmy Iovine owes the black community nothing. You blame Al Sharpton for airing out our dirty laundry, as if we are somehow hiding our ignorance from white folks. That makes zero sense. Talk like that holds back progress. The videos that spin 24hrs a day already air our problems out in the community. Hip hop, unlike any other cultural force, puts our mindset on full display for the world to see, Its too late to ask for an in-house forum to whisper our problems amongst our ‘leaders’. Has anyone ever sounded more stupid then T.I. when responding to Oprah?
