Artists Support 2nd Hip-Hop Summit

With

the 2nd Hip-Hop Summit being days away, Talib

Kweli, Queen Pen

and

Keith Murray joined Russell Simmons on an upcoming edition

of BET’s Rap City,

to talk about the Summit and taking back responsibility.

"The Summit is

needed to put order into the positive progression of the

Hip-Hop culture,"

Keith Murray said.

The 2nd Hip-Hop

Summit, which takes place on June 12-13, is a closed door

meeting of the music industry’s most powerful figures. On

the agenda are focusing on keeping Hip-Hop in order, as

opposed to having forces from outside the culture do it,

fighting censorship and getting rid of some of the redundancy

that seems to be plauging Hip-Hop.

"I love

Hip-Hop," Kweli said. "I think that the Hip-Hop

summit is solution oriented and anything towards a solution,

I am down with!"

People who have

lent their vocal support include Harry Belafonte, Jim Brown,

Bill Cosby, Sonia Sanchez, Kwesi MFume and Martin Luther

King III.
