“Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.”

African Proverb 

This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa

"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).

"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).

Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.

"The East Coast ain’t got no love for Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg? Y’all don’t love us? Well let it be known then!"

the beginning of it all

1995 Source Awards the beginning of the East Coast/West Coast beef? Climax, yes… but not the beginning. 
Reppin’ sets has always been apart of hip-hop. But “Fuck Compton" (1991) by Tim Dog is credited with the beginning. But it really escalated when Tupac was robbed and shot (1994) and blamed Biggie/Diddy for it cause they were there at the studio. And you know if someone on your label got beef, you’re supposed to have their back.. so suddenly entire labels are in the beef. And at the time, Hip-hop was ruled by Death Row Records and Bad Boy.. so it just morphed into some East Coast vs West Coast bullshit. 
All the while Outkast crept up and won Best Rap Group for Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and while everyone else was beefing and dying… they was

The South Won.

just as it should
