Hip Hop Hump-Day : Blue Scholars - New People (Empire Remix)

The degradation of  of hip-hop has gone on for far too long.  In order to be successful in its current state, two things are required; minimal lyrics on the frequency in which you smoke weed and a grade 11 grasp on the structure of rhyming,.  It is a shame, rappers with the intellect and poignancy are unknown and few and far between. However, Blue Scholars do follow the format of that hip hops' grass-roots were built upon; social awareness. Addressing issues from war, to immigration, and to racism, they encompasses a wide variety with exceptional skill.   Nevertheless, Blue Scholars took a lighter approach to "New People", a remix of Empire of the sun.
