Why Hip-Hop Is Dead

December 12, 2008

It was Nas who said, “Hip Hop is Dead.”  Now I know why.

Working in the used textbook business allows you to peek into the lives of young people all over the country.  We find all sorts of forgotten treasures stuffed into the pages of their books.  Love letters, photos, and drawings give us  glimpses into their lives and dreams.  We found this note recently detailing some young man’s hopes and dreams of becoming a star.

    Nice. I remember seeing some pretty crazy meant-to-be serious books when working there. The one that sticks out the most is “Psychology for Retards.”

    No. Not from my house. I am in the textbook business and it was from work.

    LOL Yes!

    I posted this over at and the funniest thing about it is that most people read right over the fact that it says raper and not rapper! Everybody was like “whats wrong with the little kid wanting to be a raper when he grows up?” it took me a while to figure out what had happened, I thought everybody was pro rape or something.
