The month of May can be categorized as a reflection of the grind – a new wave of work ethic in Hip Hop that transgresses the outdated stereotypes, the emulation of past precedents and the exacerbation of the safety net. 2009 has followed the largely innovative 2008 while surpassing it in quest for creativity, authenticity, and intermixing of genres, all of which allow for further transgression of Hip Hop’s established bounds, allowing artists to pave the new wave and strut what their mama gave them. The Underground Report features two artists who are incomparable in their approach to Hip Hop yet both have something fruitful to offer to their own fans: Blaq Poet and Busdriver.
As New York’s Blaq Poet readies for his Blaqprint release, . A veteran of the culture and a warrior in The Bronx/Queens battle of the '80s, it is no surprise that Blaq Poet regularly enlists none other than the veterans of rhyme (including Marley Marl, Freddie Foxxx, KRS-One) in his choice of collaborations, which is elaborate in his previous work. In the Blaqprint, Poet paints a picture of his story, which he asserts is a similar tale of many young men growing up in the projects. Blaq, as the veteran offers advice to the youngsters, explains his love for boom-bap, and vindicates why he calls them “bitch.”
