@Tee B just for my own clarification wasn't it you in a past article that stated "I do this for the love of Hip Hop. I do this becuz if I don't, those kids in my city won't have someone to look up to." Posting your name and address like you are looking for a conflict isn't in the best interest of kids looking for someone to look up to. Maybe it's more wise to be smarter and not react to mere words. Building something as a positive thing just to have all that positive taken away in two sentences isn't good for the image or message you are trying to get across. You are either positive or confrontational. If you are positive and love what you do, you shouldn't be broken from that mindset so easily. Skills, talent, and work ethic those possess is are one thing, but how people see you is another. I wish everyone good luck in whatever career they choose. Eyes open, mind focused, and ears closed. Dark tunnel with only one direction and a light at the end. I hope everyone gets there!

All the comments from these hicks and rednecks (deleted) . It is a single show on a single night. No one is taking down your confederate flag. Grow up. You are the same people complaining about juvenile delinquency. If the kids like to rap and it keeps them occupied doing something other than tipping your cows, then you should be encouraging it.

A Country Bar is in fact the perfect spot for a rap contest! After all, it was a 72 year old white man of Country stock that invented "rap"! Don't believe it? YouTube the name "Walter Brennan"! You should see a song called, "That Mule, Old Rivers, and Me"! It was there, and a bit later with a hit by Jimmy Dean called, "Big John", that "true rap" really began. As sure as The Stones, et al, owe a debt to the Man, Chuck Berry, todays rappers like all the different "Ices" & the rest had their way paved by a true genius! (deleted)
