Anybody else pick up the "Eternal E: Gangsta Memorial Edition"?  I recently did, mainly because it has the old Eazy/NWA music videos..

Hey I have an idea for a petition howabout a petition for BET to support the real hip hop and not pop hop ? There's mad em cees that have more original stuff thats dope. Kweli, PE, KRS, De La, and Common. Just to name a few. Not to mention Brand Nubes, Kane , Rakim an nem. My only gripe with un cut was it came on right before the religion stuff that started early, bad combination. BET this is your opp. to one up VH1 and MTV who wouldn't know real black music culture if it kicked them square in the nuts. So how about an old school show with like Marley Marl when he gets better ot Red Alert. And also an underground show with the lesser known real em cees MF Doom, Juggaknots, Vast Aire and Kool Keith.

I remember they had a show for a time a few years back called "Black in The Day" where they would play old school hip hop and R&B. It seems like no one is interested in really in exposing or educating the kids on the groups or artists that paved the way for the ones that are getting mad airplay and video rotation.

I think the only way a show like that would work is if you have a new school cat hosting it and talking about his inspirations. That way a show like this can serve as a bridge and not appear alienating to another part of BET's demographic.

Sounds like its too hard for parents to teach their kids right and wrong and how to decide for themselves, so the next best thing is to block everything they think is objectionable.  ::)

As an aside, I think it would be interesting if Reggie provided the petition with the 10,000 signatures of those who wanted to bring uncut back. It would make an interesting point of contrast to say the least.
