Video: NahMean Episode 4: Hip-Hop Music vs. Hip-Hop Culture

For our 4th episode of the NahMean man-on-the-street interview series,  John Public talks to a wide range of Hip-Hop fans and participants in the culture about the day to day influence that rappers and their raps have on them and others as individuals. I would also like to take this opportunity to announce the upcoming NahMean series companion mixtape, John Says: NahMean, that Mr. Public is currently prepping and will be dropping right here in the coming weeks.

Says John:

Kids today are influenced by many different factors, with media, friends, parents and personal interest at the forefront. In our fourth episode, we wanted to look at the push and pull relationship music and culture share with each other and it’s ultimate influence on people (specifically today’s youth). We spoke with people entrenched in the genre of hip-hop, as well as some teens that offered their candid opinions on how music affects them. To offer your commentary, get over to NahRight.com or facebook.com/johnpublicmusic. Be on the look for the mixtape John Said: NahMean debuting with our fifth episode in late February 2010.

Oh, you didn’t know John rapped? Well,  he does and he’s got some spit with him. The project will consist of 5 pairs of cuts with each pair based on or inspired by a past episode, for 12 tracks total with an intro and outro. The first two tracks can be found below. Feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

    “you would be scared too homie so don’t act tough”

    Where in my statement am I actin’ tough? All im sayin’ is these dudes are on these CDs braggin’ about “I’ll snuff this guy” and “i’ll blast you”, etc.

    Then when its crunch time, you duck doing time because you gotta go to the dentist?

    You had the gun on the bus, accept the consequences and man the fuck up.
