In a day and age where rumors run rapid in inner city communities, allegations against hip hop legend Afrika Bambaataa seem unreal. Most of us consider Bambaataa’s Planet Rock one of the major influences, in a B-boy driven era, that birth a new culture and lifestyle in American history. Personally I believe that a man is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, or amongst his peers. Last summer as we celebrated unity and non-violence at Crotona Park in the Boogie Down Bronx, the Black Spades spoke out against external forces dealing with an internal issue. Take a listen to what was said, and send me your opinions on the best way social justice should be approached, as we work to create a safe and harmonious environment for the future.
