I Love Hip Hop, But I Hate Shit Hop and more: The Black Dot

I Love Hip Hop, But I Hate Shit Hop

This masterpiece takes its readers from Hip Hop’s ancient origin, to its modern day Matrix. Never before has a book been written about Hip Hop through the spiritual scope of the culture, or has examined the culture from a mystical perspective. The Black Dot cleverly accomplishes both, while providing plenty of fuel for conspiracy theorist.

Hip Hop Decoded reveals that Hip Hop is far deeper than just beats and rhymes, and masterfully illustrates that each element of Hip Hop (Graffiti, DJ, Emcee, and B-Boy) has an ancient origin (hieroglyphics, drummer, oracle, and dancer), as well as, spiritual significance (earth, air, fire, and water). Knowledge is the fifth and most sacred element of Hip Hop, however, the most misunderstood. The Black Dot has compiled the most comprehensive study of the subject in book form. Hip Hop Decoded is the red pill for those looking to escape from the Matrix of Hip Hop, and begin the journey to uncover the truth about the culture. The foreword to the book was written by legend and Live Rhyme Master, Grandmaster Caz.

WARNING! This book is not for everyone. If you feel that there’s nothing wrong with the current state of Hip Hop, then this book is not for you. If you feel that gangsta rap, pimpin ho’s, violence, drug and thug activity, and half naked women in videos has elevated Hip Hop as an art form; then this book is definitely not for you. If on the other hand, you feel that listening to the same songs over and over on the radio that are laced with negative lyrics, watching soft porn or graphically violent videos, while reading the watered down Hip Hop magazines that endorse this way of life has shaped the minds of our youth, and are collectively being used as part of a mind control operation to mentally and spiritually enslave our future generations; then welcome to…HIP HOP DECODED.

Born and raised on the streets of the Bronx, The Black Dot has been fortunate enough to witness the birth of Hip Hop. At an early age, he was initiated into the art form and has been a practitioner ever since.

He released his first album in 1988, under the infamous B-Boy Records label as the lead Emcee of the rap group, “Tall, Dark, and Handsome.” In 1994, as a member of the underground rap group the Lethahedz, he released an independent EP called, “A & R Killers, Da Hip Hop Play,” which uncovered many of the injustices that are still relevant in the industry today. He also toured the world as the hype man for Tim Dog, a Bronx legend in Hip Hop.

Today, The Black Dot does lectures on the science of Hip Hop at universities, bookstores, and street corners. He is a contributing writer of 4 Korners, an underground Hip Hop newspaper in New York City, and is currently working on his next book.
