Is Hip-Hop Dead?

Is Hip-Hop Dead?
If People, by Our lyrics
can be led
With the light on ghetto
life, We shed
About how hard We have
it, as a kid
When Momma struggles
to keep Us fed
The hustle, We learn to
make fast bread
If We of such Poverty, can
spew off Our head
Using POWER that has folks
running sca'red
About how, We of the hood,
can Never be rid
Then, on this One thing, you
can surely bid
And, that is, Hip-Hop will Never
Be Dead
