Article: "Is It Because I'm Getting Old or is Music Just Really Bad These Days?"
I have to agree with this article. Urban popular music just sucks: FLAT OUT. The lyrics have no meaning. Being that music and the arts are so central to the Black experience in America, no wonder the blac culture lacks the emphasis, power, and influence that began in the civil rights and Black power movements of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. We no longer sing or speak of love, joy, or even pain. The Black experience has been dumbed down to that of cadillacs, weed, sex, and money.
