I AM CRYIN OUT FOR HELP
PLEASE DON'T YA'LL HEAR MY SCREAMS!


THE LOST OF HOPE I ONCE FELT,
THE LOSS OF A DREAM.


HIPHOP: I AM SCREAMIN, YELLIN AT YOU FOR HELP!
YOUR BATTERED SOUL, YOUR STRIPPING OF SANITY & WEALTH.


I AM SCREAMIN, CRYIN FOR YOU TO COME HERE...
'CAUSE I'M LOST, JUST LOST LOOKIN FOR YA ALL OUT THERE.


BITS AND PIECES WE FIND SCATTERED HERE AND THERE,
JUST ANOTHER LOST SOUL, LOST TO HOPE AND DESPAIR.


IN BEING STRONG TO TURN AWAY
I SEE YOUR UTTER WEAKNESS AS WE FANS HAVE TO SAVE THE DAY.
AS I SUBMIT THIS PLATFORM FOR YOU TO FINALLY BE HEARD.
BECAUSE THIS F*CKING INDUSTRY IS GETTIN ON MY LAST DAMN NERVE!!!
~~Mia, a lost HipHop fan~~

Dear HipHop Fam,


This is an attempt to do something I have never done before. I want give an answer to a question. I want to give it just as raw and uncut as I have found in bits and pieces by the people giving it. The question: Why Do Some Platinum Artists Flee Underground? We see it happening everyday for the media to dismiss them as the "crazy of the day." Dismissing one person is crazy, let alone a whole group. And as I listen to this crap on the air now, I realize it is more of my ignorant, shear laziness and fear that keep me from jumping out of the loop. To ask these rising stars directly, because they've figured out something we haven't all got too incorrectly. So this is a casting call to all artists who fit this group: WE AS YOUR #1 FANS have jumped outta the LOOP. And since I am just a lost fan of HipHop, I can only submit what I have found, as they-being the media-have cut up, rewroted and bound. What you all have been yelling at us for years, but was all but drowned out by your tears...by pop, bling-ing jewels and fancy cars changed up to now serve us brands of cloths, liquors and bars. The wolves just eat our lost and fallen stars as we fans sit, lost in bars. We did not hear the battle cries for help, then we ignorantly stomp on over them running to the next big hit. Those listening now know all too well. That even you will be shocked and amazed at what they have to tell. Stay Tuned for The Answer in Their Words as never heard before, because I won't let them edit me or this...and yes, we need more! The first artist is Lauryn Hill. See you tomorrow for her "Motives & Thoughts."
Namaste
