As a child, hip hop was the biggest influence on Bizzle’s life. And because it was so important to him, whatever hip hop said was wack, became wack and whatever hip hop said was dope, became dope. People have undermined the influence hip hop has on a generation. Bizzle has watched the drug deal go from the villan to the hero within a span of 15 years. So when his time came to sell drugs and pimp, it wasn’t such a bad thing anymore because it glorified and commonplace. Bizzle watched hip hop go from Queen Latifah saying “Who you callin’ a B!@#$” to years later hearing Trina say “I’m the baddest B!@#$” to later hearing Webbie and Boosie say “I Need a Bad B!@#$”. Now if you stand in the club you’ll hear the DJ shout “all my bad b!@#$es, scream!” and the females co-operate and not be offended at all. From Bizzle’s perspective, hip hop is a tool being used to feed a generation poison. In this visual for the single “Dear Hip Hop” Bizzle vividly shares his story on how hip hop impacted him as a youngster and where is today.
Dear Hip Hop is from Bizzle’s upcoming album ‘The Good Fight’ featuring production almost entirely handled by Boi-1da which releases April 23rd, 2013.
