Jasiri X unleashes once again: Are Gucci Mane and Waka Flaka Modern day Minstrels?


This is one of the few Hip-Hop artists I have consistently featured on my blog for the past several years because Jasiri X delivers the type of messages missing from today's industry.

This week, Paradise Gray of the Legendary Hip-Hop group X-Clan directs this scathing critique of the current climate of rap music featuring Jasiri X, Isada Tariq and Living Proofe and produced by Idasa Tariq.

"I edited the video myself so whoever got a problem with it let me know...but you know it's true," says Jasiri X.

The video was featured on AllHipHop.com and has drawn some controversy. Jasiri stated on Twitter, "Shout out to the blogs not afraid to post the video..surprised how many wouldn't even just to start a conversation..SMH"

He added this tweet, "A lot of these blogs are becoming like radio stations..afraid to offend artists for fear they might lose access."
