Why is Hip Hop more appreciated overseas

If you listen to the radio and watch 106 and park you will notice that real hip hop is damn near taboo. I try to avoid 106 and park but I been watching it since I've been stuck in the bed due to my injury. Friday "Stanky Leg" was #1. What the fuck happened to the girl that Common loved.

Think about it for a minute.........a… Continue
