For nearly three decades, hip-hop relics such as vinyl records, turntables, microphones and boom boxes have collected dust in boxes and attics. Now, owners of such items — including pioneering hip-hop artists such as Afrika Bambaataa, DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and Fab 5 Freddy — will blow that dust off and carry them to a Manhattan hotel to turn them over to National Museum of American History officials.

The museum, part of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, is announcing its plans to embark on a collecting initiative, 'Hip-Hop Won't Stop: the Beat, the Rhymes, the Life.'

Hell no.

I have yet to see the music in hip-hop/rap. And that's because it's not music. It has a beat, but it's not music.

And I can't honestly say I've seen anything anything good come out of hip-hop.

This is the essential difference between honesty and ignorance/stupidity.
