Ban reggaeton

I haven’t heard much uproar about this from the hip-hop community, but I read somewhere recently that the reggaeton station in New York has overtaken the hip-hop station in the ratings. This would seem a rather monumental development, no?

In the past few years, reggaeton stations have actually replaced modern rock stations in cities with significant hispanic populations. I recall there being a bit of a stink over this in Philadelphia, but it can be difficult for anyone to pretend they give a fuck about rock music (other than the ur-fashionable indie rock) these days.

In fact, many modern rock stations these days have been reduced to becoming a sort of “classic rock of modern rock” stations. Granted, it’s kinda cool to get in your car to go grab a sixer and hear Alice in Chain’s “Rooster,” but when it happens more than once in a week, it’s like, “Whoa, what the fuck’s going on here?”

I’m sure kids felt the same way in 1980.

If this reggaeton garbage can knock rock music off the radio, what’s there to suggest it can’t replace hip-hop as well? After all, kids who listen to rock music spend more money on soda than hip-hop kids, right? And wouldn’t reggaeton, which incorporates elements of hip-hop seem a more natural replacement for hip-hop than anything else?

In a city like New York, where half the black people are actually hispanic anyway, who would even give a shit?

I was in New York last year and let me tell you it sucked balls. To be sure, people in every city in this country complain about the radio, but New Yorkers might actually have a point. They really do play the same five songs over and over again out there. I heard that one Mariah Carey song like 300 times, and I barely listened to the radio.

What was worse was when they would bust out into some awful reggae or reggaeton, which happened about every other song, even on the so-called hip-hop station. As if there wasn’t enough reggaeton on the actual reggaeton station. It could be that the TIs at Clear Channel are trying to gradually wean New Yorkers off of hip-hop.

That song “Can’t Satisfy Her” by I Wayne, a true abortion in musical form, may have been the most popular song that week that wasn’t by Mariah Carey. You could hear that garbage on every filthy-ass street corner. Interestingly enough, I haven’t even heard that song once since I was in New York. Viva la midwest!

Mexicans (er, hispanics) have only recently outgrown blacks in terms of population. Given the rate at which they reproduce, they could outnumber blacks by orders of magnitude as recently as, I don’t know, tomorrow? In most of the country there was no such thing as “the hip-hop station” as recently as 10 years ago. What’s there to suggest that there will 10 years from now?

Hip-hop has already fallen into quite a bit of a rut creatively – the kind genres fall into once they officially stop mattering. Once it stops becoming as much of a commercial force, I wouldn’t be surprised if it became highly margianilized at the very least, if not kicked off the radio entirely by reggaeton. If they let it happen to rock, you best believe they’d let it happen to hip-hop.

    Do you mean to suggest that reggaeton shouldn’t be banned?

  • http://source one

    reggeaton is just watered down hiphop
    lets just be honest.it’s a total rip off
    that shit really sucks mexicans need to find thier own idenity and stop steal’n ours.latinos at least in los angeles are even starting to call them selves niggas
    i hear it with nmy own ears.when did yall get that comfortable.it’s because
    our culture looks exciting to them.so it’s like a fad 4 them but the problem is when the fad is over and mexicans decide to act like them selves agian
    they will all ready have fucked our shit our heritage our culture.why cant everybody just be them selves.it’s like paul mooney said, everybody wants to be a nigga.the black man is the most imitated man on the face of this earth.and to tell yall the truth ,we’re getting sick of it!!!!!!!

  • http://source one

    and another thing all yall mexicans keep fight’n and protesting about the whole
    ilegal alien thing.it’s one thing to have pride in where u come from and of your heritage.but u guys are fight’n to be americans so why do yall keep wave’n the mexican flag around like mexico is better then america. if yall want to be american citizens then shouldnt u people be wave’n the american flag to show your that u want to be one of us.u cant have it both ways.if u want to be a part of something u dont wave the other teams flag.the real legal citizens are tired of pay’n taxes for people who arent even suppopsed to be here.why should somebody thats not even legal have the
    right to get a drivers licence.or any other of the same rights we as legal citizens have.if i go to mexico they aint gon break thier ass so i can get a bunch of free shit at the tax payers expence.u people have some nerve……

    Alas! One of Guy Crawford’s articles actually point, in one way or another, to a relevant point!

    Reggaeton, more commonly referred to in these parts as “Reggaebon(er)”, is quite possibly one of the Top 3 worst pop music trends in the HIStory (pun intended?).

    You wanna talk about garbage eaters?

    Then talk about anyone who listens to and enjoys Daddy Yankie.

    One rediculous Guy Crawford quote:

    “What was worse was when they would bust out into some awful reggae or reggaeton…”

    I hope you’re not comparing reggae to reggaeton. Im no diehard reggae fan, but I’d much rather get high and listen to Bob Marley’s “Soul Almighty” than Kevin Lyttle’s “Reggaeboner is my As*” or whatever his album is unaptly named.

    (Reggaebon beat outro)

  • BIG ED FROM NY

    dam reggaeton sucks but if they are eating fuck it and let them eat…its no sweat of my balls more power to them but i hate the way everything that has to do with hispanics has that god-awful music!!!! hope this fad goes away quick!!!

    It’s exactly this kind of thinking that’s ruining hip-hop.

  • dollar_wells

    don’t ban it, just make all all reggaton artists felons, anyone who supports them fellons, and build a 700 mile fence around all of reggatonixco. you know, like you support doing on your considerably-more ‘controversial’ blog. at least here, the comments section doesn’t read like stormfront’s greatest hits.

    for the record, reggaeton sucks ass.

  • BIG ED FROM NY

    yo how u think thats ruining hip-hop? i yet to understand your logic behind the fact that you cant seem to want these people making money from a style form that to them is the best thing ever?!?!?!?!?!?! they said the same thing about hip-hop back in the day and look where it is now, billions of dollars later hip-hop is a force to be reckoned with…3 six mafia just won an oscar!!!!! all these guys making millions!!! thats great. when a form a hip-hop, just a minor outbranch under the mega umbrella that is rap music comes out people want to shoot it down and do away with it…but to someone somewhere this music is the best thing going for them. why kill it for them…there are rappers out there who i think shouldn’t be allowed to touch a mic but they making money…so i say let them do what they do…dont hate!

    first off el general started the whole reggaeton thing and he aint puerto rican.yall need to get ur music history right.and second if i was jamaican i’d be pissed off.
    fuck reggaeton and everything to do with it.real reggae music by real black people is what should be played on the radio.nobody aint try’n to hear no fake ass hiphop wit a bunch of spanish giberish over it.
    and the bottom line is that hiphop has nut’n to worry about because the only muthafuckas that even give a shit about reggaeton is u fuck’n spics.nobody else cares.every body wants to be a nigga.at least the latino men.maybe it’s cause all the latino
    women are fuck’n black men.
    is it penis envy?why dont yall steal some other cultures idenity and leave ours alone!!!!!!!!!!!!P.S. and stop dress’n like us too.

  • http://www.soundclick.com/delfinvega illwill

    yea thats why black women love us lol….and what the general started wasnt reggeton it was spanish reggae.and one more thing one i know your pussy ass is reading this,puerto rico,cuba,and the dominican republic,panama all have black in it so why would we steal black culutre we are part of the black man and indian and spaniard mixed so fam stop with the hate,whats wrong a spanish cat fuck ya girl or kicked ya ass,you from la so you dont know about our music which is also your music the black man is universal you fake ass nicca…am god like you,i dont about mexicans but they dont rep us latinos from the caribbean…faggot/and all i see is black and white men dissin us latino men cause all the bitches love us,cause god made us beautiful in his image not ugly like your people, dont nobody want to be black hip hop is what people want to be with so dont flatter ya self and like my man paul money said puerto ricans and cubans aint nothing but some niggas that can swim so do the math god stop sounding like a white person or better yet talk to those wiggers who steal your culture and have always stole the man of colors culture

    Since when do hispanics think they look better than black ppl? I’m not gonna front, there are a lot of fine latinos but to say that black ppl are ugly and that “God made us [latinos] in his image” is real special (ed). Black ppl are some of the most beautiful ppl on earth and God made man (aka everyone in his image). I hate ignorance. I won’t even speak on reggaeton b/c I have no idea what the hell they are saying 98% of the time and I’m taking Spanish. I have yet to be given a straight answer on what “Gasolina” means.

    Why is this some mexican/latino/hispanic battle for supremacy?

    I thought it was about NYC radio. It DOES suck, that’s one thing. I’m from Hampton Roads, VA and the radio is weak there but I can honestly say that it kills NYC as far as variety. At least I can hear some “underground” hiphop on the air instead of just the same 4 songs.

    I’m in NYC quite a bit and (S)HOT 97 is nothing but interviews with wacka** rappers and Wendy Williams gossip radio. DJ Spinbad can’t even do his thing in the air for real because someone has a boot on his neck.

    Anyway, reggaeton is pretty weak stuff and even my dominican and boriqua peoples up there agree with me on that.

  • http://XXL YoungMando

    Yo this dude is really bad for you XXL, i just joined a 12 month subscription to your magazine & if yo keep this guy any longer i promise you i will also cancel my subscription because as you dont need to listen to reggaeton music then i dont need your black magazine,holla!
    2nd of all Mexican’s are probably the only ones not jumping on the reggaeton band wagon. if you really pay attention reggaeton is a cuban/ puerto rican thing man, i never heard a Mexican on a reggaeton track. Mexican’s keep it gangsta here on the west coast. we sample oldies & still talk about colors out here man.keep it real, where is Don Omar, Daddy Yankee,Ivy Queen & all dem dudes from???? Not Mexico that’s for sure.
    you gotta do more homework on your music playboy! oh and another thing if you don’t like it go back to Africa like Dave Chappelle did!

  • nsaniT

    Bol.. once again i mostly agree. Reggaeton is right up there with hyphy, crunk music, and “snap music”. Its all bullshit pulling hip-hop away from its roots. Lol @ “mexicans..er..hispanics” that was obviously an attempt @ humor. the man was trying to be funny.. and he suceeded. You people these days.. getting riled up over the unimportant things, Damn. Shut Up, and turn on a Wu-Tang album. Living in upper NJ i get hot 97, and once again bol is right. it’s either mariah carey or some spanish babble i cant understand. (not saying all spanish is “babble” just that.. wow? thats music?) Anyway.. Bol is generally correct. the only time he wasnt was with that “Southerners quit your bitchin” blog in which Bun B pwned him into exile. Bol’s still the man.. quit hatin.. start appreciatin.. did you turn off your radio and throw on a Wu album yet? Huh?

  • Sofa King UnLtd.

    @Midwest “Spic”: Get the fuck outta here.

    You start off sayin “Blacks aint got no business bein racist…” Exactly. But neither do YOU or anyone else. You can honestly replace ‘black’ with ‘hispanic’ in the first half of your entire post. Believe me, most of us are in the same fuckin boat, black or brown. And that shit about blacks being lazy?? Pssh…muthafucka, blacks’ve put plenty of work into this country. I know shit has changed since then, but acknowledge that. Goddamn.

    And I have nothin but love for Hispanics & Latinos, don’t get it twisted. I don’t like Reggaeton or 95% of Southern hip hop either for that matter, but I still respect yall doin ya thing. Period. I realize the politics behind the whole reggaeton movement, let’s keep shit like this strictly about music…I’m sick of the race war shit, especially amongst minorities.

    I LOVE NYC!!! Everything about it- the poeple, the nightlife, ALL the neighborhoods, and especially the reggaeton. Living in the South (not “da derty”) issues of race and class are things one is forced to deal with daily. New York may not be perfect but, to outsiders it seems that New Yorkers deal better with the issues than the rest of over nation. Since my undergrad years I’ve been spending at least a couple of weeks in NYC every year and truly beleve that it is the greatest city on earth. As far as the “beef” between Blacks and Latinos and music genre- both our communities have much bigger fish to fry. Get over your petty egos and teach a minority youth something constructive, clean up a vacant lot in your neighborhood, or spend an afternoon with a elderly person.

If you want to kill something kill all the commercial shit that killed hip hop.including all those radio stations and mags that only cover or support that commercial shit only for the money..not just cause you like it but only cause some one bought a spot on your mag or bought radio time.Reggaeton snuck in and broke down doors and because is not black created kill it , RIGHT ? !!

    You are all forgetting the most important race of all in all of this white people. Some asshole said that latinos can’t be stopped and thats ryte they can’t be stopped from moaning our lawns and growing our apples. Hip hop becomes popular because they people who run this world understand that by showing blacks role models who run around screaming laffy taffy like a kid with turret syndrome or severe mental retardation that they will never make it up in the world. Shame on black people for loving that shit. And on a side note to all those latinos stay the fuck out of our countries u have no birthright here you aren’t fucking wanted here either. This stupid attitude of ye were just trying to make better ourselves gets lost once you start holding mass protests and screaming that a country is magically rightfully yours when it isn’t at all (check the history books you lost assholes) then its a fuckin takeover by way of infestation and it should be stopped I think the best way would just to do what they do if you try nd sneak into mexico.

  • Vanessa

    WOW!!! This is the most sickening article I have ever read in my LIFE!! You have BALLS, on top of being a hypocritical SOB! Do some research like a real columnist as you call yourself, learn a little something. Reggaeton and Hip-Hop are on the same level, the stories of their roots have numerous similarities. Both genres began because people wanted to hear something that they could relate to. Hip-hop is about the struggle in urban cities REAL REGGAETON relays the same message. Just because you don’t understand it doesn’t make it god awful as you make it out to be. I can say that not all reggaeton is up to any real music lovers par, but to BASH and try to dicredit real artists work is on your part as a “COLUMNIST” a weasely way to pass on the same racism that white people have passed on to your music. I agree that its PURE JEALOUSY that fueled this article and it ABSOLUTELY unbelieveable that any kind of minority would have written it. You wanna hate on radio stations for playin the same bull, I agree. Bring an iPod to the city. WTF! And to the BIGOTS that added their 2 cents. Eat shit cause in ten yeasrs everyone in this country will be half Latino in one way or another. Careful cause your siter, brother or best friend is probably down to live the vida loca.

  • Trujillo

    why all the hate man?? you dont like reggeaton cause you cant understand it, you cant relate. like a bunch of others already said, youre doin what the white man did to yalls hip-hop. also much respect to the hyphy, crunk, and snap for also doin their thing, ITS CALLED EXPANSION NICCAS, PAY ATTENTION!! Latinos Stand Up, fuck all the ignorant haters

  • CAZY

    Latinos have been in the United states since it was established. Most of the highways were built on the sweat of the Mexicans who crossed over. Hip hop was built on black and latino dollars. a big percentage of your subscribers are Chicanos. People of Latin decent born in the united states. Reggaton is not for everyone but you have to respect Daddy Yankee and other artist who can cell big numbers in a time when The music industry is at a standstill. In the name of Latinos everywhere Fuck Byron Crawford. You wouldnt be singing that song if you were locked up. The locos would turn you into a bitch. CAZYLOCO

  • ecosmos

    DAMN,for a super power y`all got some free time and energy to spend on the comments of some ignorante,racist columnist like Bol,bottom line,there`s no way reggaton is a threat to hip-hop,and i don`t see why is it raising a racial dispute up in here,shit you want problems spend some time in some third world contries instead of beating each other to death because of a senseless columnist….my niggaz and latinos keep the peace flowing

  • DROSS

    To all the latinos, Stop taking the credict for something you didn’t create

    Reggaeton is mostly reggae with spanish words to it. I be in jamaica all the time hearing that beat before i heard about reggaeton. You need to give credict where credict is do.

    Don’t get me wrong because I know you all are doin your thing but you act like this is your music just because da words are in spanish.

    Bob Marley probably turning in his grave right now cuz of reggaeton. Don’t act like yall dont know about ” your music” If you don’t now u need to read on it. I would tell u myself but It would take 2 much time that i dont have to be talkin on this nonsense. I feel angry towards reggaeton and down right insulted. To all my jamacians out there. Keep on holdin it down for our land. Welcome to Jamrock Niggas.

  • latin king

    naw playboi reggeton beats are way diff than dance hall riddims,am down with lot jamicans here in miami,who will tell you the same,and the flow is diff between the two,bob marley turning he never made any type record with a reggeton beat man thats are grandpas reggae,youa jafakin not no reaL DREAD

  • atl

    If that’s the case then taker out the reggae in the reggaeton and just call it ton

  • atl

    By the way if it wasn’t for Bob Marley, Reggae would probably not be as big as it is. And if reggae wasn’t as big as it is there would be no REGGAEton.

  • king

    I have to agree wit atl. Latinos always takin somthin from blck folk. This time jamacian folk. If you are saying that reggaeton would exist wit out jamacian reggae then you just actin the fool man. If the jamacians didn’t go to panama to work on the canal, Reggae wouldn’t even exist in Latin America. It’s amazing that most jaamacian artists arent taking this seriously. Neither arent any jamacians period. Either way I dont like reggaeton period. Reggae Dancehall, Ska, Hip Hop > Reggaeton

  • maria

    I’m tired of dickheads hating on us latinos. Let us be who we are.Stop hating on my people. We are damn proud of who we are and… what are you haters gonna do about it.Huh? nothing. You all have nothing good to do but talk about others. For all you cabrones out their remember this who are you to call my people immigrants if all we need to do is jump that fence while your people had to come through ships to get here. If it wasn’t for our ancestors your stupid lazy ass would’nt be here. puerto ricans cubans and people from the dominican republic are latinos they got roots heritage.Fuck all of you haters. it doesn’t matter anyway you can’t do shit about us and what.

  • I’m Black

    How can you say that black people are lazy. If it wren’t for the jamacains( who happen to be BLACK)that went to Panama to build the canal Reggae music would still be only Jamacian music. Really when you think about it the only real good reggae music is jamacian reggae. But back to black folk being lazy. Building a a canal takes a lot of effort I beilive. You can’t be lazy building a canal. And why is it that the only race of latinos giving credict to the jamacians for paving the way for reggaeton Panaminians. The two countries have a close bond with each other. They respect each other and the great things they doing.

  • Joe

    Reason all you are hating on reggaeton is coz you don’t appreciate dancehall. In the UK people who like hip hop often like dancehall, and some of us like to learn Spanish too (or are Spanish/Latino)…we appreciate it for the same reasons we appreciate hip hop and dancehall. Race does not even enter our heads.

  • yea mon

    First of all Reggaeton is nothing but a poor imitation of reggae. The latinos try try to say that it is their culture and nobody else’s, but I got a little history lesson for all the dumb ass latinos everywhere that like reggaeton. Reggaeton’s roots go back to Jamaica, not Panama. It staeted in the 1960′s with ska music. Hip hop really can be traced back to ska music. Go to wikipedia.com for more information on the ska movement. Year’s later, the music Reggae was created out of ska. Keep in mind that this is all jamaican music. Not Latin music. Legend Bob Marley took it to the top. Jamacian immagrants then traveled to the country of Panama to work on the Canal. Along with them they brought the Jamacian music of reggae. The culture/music was loved so much by the panaminians which are latinos that they took reggae music (mixed in some of their culture) and created spanish reggae. Some how the music ended up the the latin island of Peurto Rico( excuse my spelling, but i’m in a hurry)Back in Jamaica a new form of music was being birthed out of traditional Jamacian reggae called Dancehall. Dancehall is a genre that has reggae influences as well as hip hop influences. Remember hip hop was really birthed out of the Jamacian music of ska. The peutroricans loved dancehall so much that they translated lyrics into spanish. Now you have spanish dancehall. No more than jamacian dancehall with spanish words. In the early 1990′s a jamaican music artist had a song named Dembow. This artist is named Shabba Ranks. Dembow is the beat that is used in reggaeton to give it it’s flare. The latinos think that because the slow it down a bit and make it heavier that it is their culture. Taking all of these elements of Panaminian reggae, Dancehall, Dembow, Ska and hip hop, You have the ” Latino genre of hip hop” Reggaeton. Not to forget about some of the other infleunces on the latin side such as salsa, merenuge, and so on. I assume that because of the latin infleunces in reggaeton that is why they think it is a movement of their own. But lets remember that if you take out the jamaican music( reggae, dancehall, hip ho and most importantly ska) what do you have , ordinary latin music. Basically what i am aying is that Reggaeton is more than half of the infleunce of reggaeton and majority rules. All of these reggaeton artists need to start giving the respect due to Jamacians. I hear all of this crap like it is a latino movement only and no one else deserves the credict. Don’t forget about that small town named trenchtown in the small island of jamaica that gave all of these countries in essence permission to take their culture but not create something out of it that is a a bunch of crap. If you want a more accurate timeline ore orgins of reggaeton please look it up under wikipedia.

  • Joe

    Wack a$$ statesiders! You aint keepin nothing real…stead you just always bitchin

  • rastalove

    If you’re going to criticize, get it straight. I-Wayne is an up and coming Jamaican reggae artist, and Can’t Satisfy Her is a great song with a powerful message. Any song can get annoying if it’s played over and over again.

    And Kevin Lyttle is a soca/calypso artist. Nothing to do with reggaeton, but yes, he sucks too.

  • dc in da building

    I’m a person that is mixed with jamacian blood. I think that reggaeton aint goin no where. I think that this talk from black people are because they feel threatened by the reggaeton movement. They feel that the latinos are taking over and that the black culture will be wiped out. But that aint true. Black folk been here from day 1 doing the thing. From slavey till now. WE come a long way since slavery times. But i’m going to prove to black people that we aint goin anywhere from the music point of view. Let’s look at all of the music that black people created. Hip hop/rap, r and b, rock n roll ( yes black people created rock n roll, but the white man took it from us before we could delvelop it), jazz, soul, funk, calypso, soca, ska, and reggae. I’m sure that there are more but I can’t think of everything. All of this music has made a major impact on the rest of the world. Because we talkin bout reggaeton lets talk bout reggae and all of jamacian music in general. Reggae music has infleuenced a music from england called jungle. If it waswn’t for black reggae there would be no jungle. Ska music infleuenced reggae music which infleuenced spanish reggae in panama.Dancehall music from reggae music inspired the ” latino movement” of reggaeton. Reggae music also inspired a music form from Cuba called cubaton. And the list can go on for pages. The point i’m trying to mke is is that black people have inspired this world into taking our culture to make something of their own. If our culture aint there then it can’t be what it is. I was reading another forum that said that when you see all of these reggaeton concerts it’s a shame that you don’t see any jamacian flags becuase jamaicans started it all. And I agree. All the latinos should be proud of themselves for what they’ve been able to do, but they need to realize that the jamacians which happen to be black paved the way for the reggaeton movement like it or not. I also have another comment for all the people that say that black wowmen are ugly. Who the hell do you think ya’ll are. There might be more beutiful latinas than black people in the states. But the beautiful black women are still here. Go to cities like atlanta,detroit, new york, washington dc and you’ll know what i’m talkin bout. And if you want black women out of the states then you should go to the carribean. I’ll take you to my country of jamaica and show you some women that would blow latinos minds away. Also barbados, trinidad and barbados. You can even go to africa and see some of the most beautiful black women in the world. Like ludicris says in his song pimpin all over the world ” the best women are residing in Africa” With all of this said black people should fell proud of themselves. We are good looking, created some of the most soulful music ove humanaity, have the best comedians, actors, singers( Whitney Houston before dumb ass Bobby Brown)and a culture that is envied by many other races( asia for example. Black people one love one heart.

    first son u need to go back to elementary school or get yourself a book on geography for dummies…2nd hey man rock was persecuted by christian, rap n hip-hop by radicals and now people like you trying to go against reagggeton… whats ur point son? they way i see it we all are part of this life chain called evolution get on board man, if u truly love rock, hip-hop, rap or reaggeton it doesnt matter how much is play on the danm radio its not going anywere… droped music is music regarless if is ur style or not grow the fuck up and find your self something to really fight about….by the way lets start fithing racism..oh shit i would have to kill u first…I have been in clubs in Russia, thailand, Japan, Korea, Guam, Spain London, and in about another 10 other countrys around the world and they still love and enbraise rap and hip hop so step out of the box for a little before you shoot your self in the foot….I’m done with ur ignorant ass! and the funny part is that I though we were better than this as a minority….you are the classical nonsense racist the Dr. King fought so much about!!! Well I have a dream, that one day every race, ethnicity, or human been would be able to listen to their preference of music with out dunb bastard like you bashing on them.

  • redskin

    Hip Hop’s been around for a while and it may have run it’s course. The same will happen to Reggaeton. I mean, how much of the same beat day in and day out can you take anyway?

  • cana

    fuck motherfucking reggaeton shit thats a fucking imitation of rap, they even dress like rappers and call themselves rappers wtf.

  • ciuqo

    yo im a big fan of hip hop and reggeton, youll people got to understand that originally hip hop was only meant for blacks but look where it is now, it has expanded. reggaeton is the same is another form of hip hop but for us latinos. Eminem is a white rapper which mainly is directed for the white race, and as for every other country thats doing hip hop for their people. hip hop aint for just one race so youll got to stop hating

  • smith

    that’s right, hip hop was really meant for just black people only, but just like everything the black man makes has to be stolen and turned into something else. Like rock and roll with whites, reggae for black jamaicans, hip hop for black jamaicans , r and b for black people now you have latin r and b, and the list continues. I i can say is that all the other races don’t want to give black folk any credict for anything black folk should stop allowing these people to take our products and make more money of of it then we do. Black people stand up, WE KNOW WHAT WE’VE DONE AND WE SHOULD BE PROUD.

    lol this is hilarious
    frst of all howz this racist because its giving compliment to another race besides urz

  • Greeneyed Mexicana

    I don’t know which is worse. The ignorance of the guy who wrote the article or some of the comments posted.

    Latinos are mostly a mix of spanish, indian AND african. So, what’s with all the hate? Why are you implying that we’re somehow less?

    I think we have a lot to offer and that our culture is one of the richest with our people, our music and our way of life.

  • Elaine

    I think this guy is tripping. There is room for both hip hop and reggaeton. It’s okay not to like reggaeton, but it should at least be respected. If he really wants to talk, he should be talking about the decline in quality of hip hop/rap songs of today. I can’t even listen to the radio anymore; I just listen to my old school music.

  • nigga 4 real

    So what if hip hop is declining in quality. The same thing has happened with reggaeton and other musical genres. Just cuz we black that’s all the problem is. Hip hop even though is not as good as it used to be still has high quality rap songs from the past. So does reggaeton at least from what i hear. The only reason rap sucks now is cuz of the south. The only good rappers from the south are people like jeezy and ti. Just like in reggaeton tego calderon, don omar people like that. Old school is fine with me as always. Sometimes i’m not in the mood for hip hop i listen to stevie wonder, gladys knigt, chaka kahn and people like that. Latinos sure don’t know nothin about no motown. Any way no matter what reggaeton owes respect to reggae cuz they know that it is the foundation of their music. If there is no strong foundation teh house can’t stand.

  • Elaine

    So what’s your point “United Blacks Against Culture Stealers”? White Americans, Asians, Europeans, and others have all enjoyed black culture for decades. Why is it so different with reggaeton? Yes, we know! African (American) culture is the most imitated in the world. And I know it irritates many blacks that this is true, and, for the materialistic few, they wish “we” would get more profit from this. Well, news flash, many of the hip hop/r&b artists are getting big bucks from people of other ethnicities who buy their music, and etc. Music is like a universal language; it’s made for everyone.

  • joe

    Again your wrong. If music was for everyone to enjoy then there would be one language for everyone to understand what the artists are saying.

  • Elaine

    No, I happen to be positive that music is universal. How else would you explain how people from other countries are able to enjoy our mnusic? A lot of people who don’t speak English (or know the slang used in the songs) enjoy black music. When we listen to music, we mostly listen the groove, the beat, etc. not for lyrics. Sure, the lyrics are important, but music itself seems like a language; it’s like it speaks to you.

    omg, theyre playing reggaeton on a hip hop station!?!? oh cruel world!..

    if u dont like reggaeton, just stfu and change the station….fuccin dumbasses…

    50 cent and eminem get played on rock radio stations..
    u don’t hear poeple bitchin and complaining about that…
    and when reggae was in, nobody was bitchin like that. in fact, people actually started liking and listening to reggae because of that..

    if u don’t like it, just turn off the radio..
    or, god forbid, u start giving it a chance and maybe start liking reggaeton instead of being so closed-minded and stubborn..

    que mamones son…

    why bring this into a race thing. it’s essentially about the music. not about a look, or braids in the hair, or anything like that. taste in music goes no further than your own ears. no matter what color of skin you are.

    let your ears discriminate, not your mouth. turn off the radio if you don’t like it, or get of your ass and start making your own.

    when one commercially successful genre goes away, that means there’s room in the underground for it to re-invent itself and evolve into something deeper than radio-money-making-bullshit.

    stop the racial slams.

  • LATIN PISTOL

    first of all this skinny samual l jackson lookin mufuka better shut the fuck up. reggaeton and hip hop are different music. o and theres a reason it sounds like spanish jibberish, u dont speak spanish!!! if there playin more reggaeton then wat ur used to, its cause people listen to it more, at least for the moment. and if i see this four-eyed “Crawfored” mufuka, best believe he goin need a new pair of glasses. bitch ass talkin shit bout hispanics when he no dam weel hes gotten his ass kicked by at least a couple of them. man im out. fuck this pussy.

  • ReadyforLife

    I think that the black and latino communities, especially the black jamaican community needs to be careful that this reggaeton vs hip hop/dancehal-reggae battle doesn’t turn into a black vs latino war. Realize that we need each other more than we need to be fighting each other. Hip hop has been there. Blacks have made a name for themselves. Latinos are just following in our foot steps. We need to work together as minorites and show the white man that we have somethin to offer. I like reggaeton. I perfer reggae, dancehall and hip hop. Latinos know where reggaeton really comes from wheter they want to admit it or not. In my opinion jamaica should get most of the credict for reggaeton and hip hop. Let me talk to my latinos for a minute. I see videos with reggaeton that shows latin american countries flags alone. I know that reggaeton is most familiar with the latin community but jamaican flags need to be thrown up with out any questions. They are the base of of hip hop and reggaeton. Without them we could be makin no noise period. All i’m sayin is show the Jamaican community some love that’s all. Now to the black community in america, we as latinos know deep down inside that black culture is the most dominate culture in America. Even though we talk shit about you guys sometimes we still realize that. And some latinos use reggaeton to try to put fear into the black community sayin that we are ” takin over ” and all that shit. All we are doin is tryin to catch up to you and stand side by side with you. We came out of the same hood with you guys and sometimes both blacks and latinos forget that. The blacks and latinos that where livin in the hood back in the day got along, dated each other and did things like that with little hatred towards each other. I think that that unity needs to come back. Because of the rise in latino population in the US and the rise of reggaeton latinos think that they are better than blacks and that’s not true. Latinos listen I am proud to be a latino but i aint proud at how we treat blacks. Instead of hatin on them we should be focused on going through the doors that the black community has opened for not just latinos but all minorites. I just want us as latinos and blacks to stand side by side with no problems. I want us to be able to hang out together, date each other, sing together, rap together with no problems. Look at what we have done hating each other. Can you imagine what we can do together. God know what we can do for this country and the world. This might sound corny and shit but I don’t care. In my school race aint really a problem. You see spanish and blacks hagin out together all the time. Ther could be 1 black kid in a group of 10 latinos or the other way around and we still have fun and it’s like we don’t even see our race, color of skin. I’m just gettin happy by thinkin of what can happin with our unity. I’m gonna stop cuz i’m talkin to much. If you wanna hear more of what i wanna say then say the word cuz I got a whole lot to say. Black + Latino = Unbeilivable Power.

  • Tupac

    What can anyone say about the ” latino urban movement” of reggaeton. The latinos take two of the biggest forms of music in reggae and hip hop, which were made by jamaicans and sing lyrics in spanish. ” Latin power!” Ha Ha Hell. I’m still laughing at the fact that when I was watching that documentary the chosen few on on demand, that fat ass spanish artist had the nerve to say that “spanish hip hop” and ” spanish reggae” can’t be stopped and that latin america is speaking. Jamaica created this music, they can damn well take it back. Yeah I said it.

  • maserati girl

    if you don’t like the music, don’t listen to it. geeze, whats wrong with variety anyway? new styles come an go, the ones that are good, they stick around. so deal withit. LA RAZA

  • Atl

    Reggaeton aint good. It’s just doin good cuz of the high amount of latinos/hispanics here. A lot of them illegals. Not to say no one else is illegal but when 85 percent of the illegals are hispanic/latino that kind of brushes off the 15 percent. Also reggaeton artists even though they don’t show it knows where the music comes from. They act all high and mighty and shit wth their latin pride but they know that they couldn’t do shit with out Jamaica’s inspiration. To my knowledge it was reggae that influenced latin america to mix in some of their culture into the jamaican culture. Reggae come into latin america and inspired the people. Besides when you have legends like Bob Marley and Peter Tosh just their names burn up reggaeton’s popularity. So whatever to the latinos. Good Luck to you and respect the roots of your music cause without roots a tree can’t grow.

    i got a comment to make

    latino is not a race

    2.mullato, moricos, meztizos and spanish whites are racist towards black people in latin america, so how are we in the same struggle? in america maybe but worldwide no so fuck off!

    3 majority of different asian nationals are racist towards blacks on a whole(world)…

    4.the only reason why hispanics outnumber blacks(americans) is because all spanish speaking countries are lumped together as one so whos the fool no latino nationality outnumber african americans toe to toe( single handedly) mexicans are behind american blacks tho but puerto ricans theres not even 4 million pr in america

    you bunc of racist muthafuckas. I mean just cus reggaeton was influenced by reggea dont mean its not its own style of music. hi hop and rap were also influnced by reggea and do you see any of them givin any props to jamaimcans. Blacks and latinos need to stick together and show the white man whose boss.

  • Slipknot_Korn

    You guys are racist bastards. Reggaeton sucks and always will. Rock being replaced by reggaeton? Hell no. Those fuckers shall be punished. Rock is the best music ever. I don’t hate rap because underground rap/early rap was cool, but now it sucks. Sorry to the people that like the “mainstream rap”. Only Jay Z and Eminem were good.

  • Mack D

    Well admitting that reggaeton is influenced by reggae means that if reggae wasn’t invovled their would be no reggaeton. You can’t say that the dancehall didn’t do anything for reggaeton. I mean you even have reggaeton dee jays sayin that reggaeton would be nothing without danehall reggae. A Daddy Yankee representative spoke at the International Reggae awards and said that before dancehall we or ( latinos) had nothing and that’s true. It wasn’t salsa that gave reggaeton its flavor. It wasn’t the bomba or anything like that. Now when dancehall was introduced to latinos by jamaicans, they looked at it, listened to it and loved it. They even did full dancehall sangs. No additions or anything origanal jamaican dancehall. They just did lyrics in spanish. Now they just mixed in some spanish influence and that’s how reggaeton started. If dancehall wasn’t invovled in the equation, latinos wouldn’t be able to mix in any of their music. There was nothing good enough to mix in their music for a danceable music. With all of that said, just admit that no matter what ya’ll latinos say, the music was taken directly from jamaican culture and ya’ll did somthing before they could do somthing with it.The dembow for cryin out loud is jamaican and its the foundation of what makes reggaeton reggaeton.

  • http://cxnvn kyle

    yall should all shut the fuck up.
    i mean its really really annoying that you have to go follow the rules of society. with this racial labeling and only allowing people of certain races to do certain things.

    and this message board or whatever is arguing about reggaeton being on hip hop stations? shut. the. fuck. up with youre goddamn whining.

    “its cuz im black its cuz im black” it has nothing to do with it half the time. and so what, theres a little bit of variety on your goddamn station, sorry we had to intterupt the 24/7 air play of “shoulder lean” and all that other stupid shit to add in a “caile” or “rakata”.

    if you wanna talk about quality, all of its bad. if anything you should enjoy it just as good as your mainstream crap.

    and hispanic is a term of mix and they cant come up with anything more specific so all hispanics are mixed so you really need to shut it with the “this is only for black people” shit.

    everyones always saying that black people were mistreated but that doesnt give you the right to be an asshole in this day and age. so what if over 200- 50 years ago your “PEOPLE” were enslaved. you act like YOU went through it. and you act like no one else went through it.

    its okay for black people to have a BET channel and to have a million goddamn racist comedy shows against every other race but the minute a white person goes on stage and says “so what about those black people” they get crucified by the media like theyre the anti christ.

  • NYC

    Well there aint many black people that are putting white folks into slavery like white people did to us. So that is the least harm that black people can do. There aint no white people being murdered by black people because they white. Aint no black people tellin white people to move to the back of the bus because they white or bein told that they can’t sit in the resturant because they white. So before you talk about blacks bein racist, you should think about the level of the racism. Racism is racism, I know but white people are still bein racist to blacks so what does that sya about black people.

    Hip Hop was created in the Bronx by LATINOS and BLACKS and JAMAICANS, too. If you have difficulty with your history, take a fuckin’ class. Moreover, this idea that Black ppl are ‘ugly’ for whatever reason is BEYOND me. I am Puerto Rican and I am clearly a BLACK INDIGENOUS WOMAN. ALL ppl are beautiful in their own way, but if your stupid ass can’t get your bi-foco-locos from peeping this damned coputer screen all night and GO OUT INTO THE WORLD to SEE that, then OH FUCKING WELL. This is a retarded BLOG punto FINAL. And, damned if I think Blk or Latino dick sizes means anything. For someone to believe that that is all a man has to offer, you are simply PROJECT TRASH and not worth a DAMN. Feel me?!

    Why r u people so racist?????

    So boi what is your problem with Reggaeton…

  • http://AOL BORICUA77

    With all do respect there is alot of hyprocracy on the part of some black people. Anytime a Puertorican artist makes it big they want to knock them down.They HATE J Lo for no good reason. I wonder for what? The Puertorican day parade is the only ethnic celebration in the country that features African-American artists. When artists such as Beyonce,50 Cent,Usher,Raven Symonne Etc. prefrom in Puertorico they are met with alot of Love. This is why I ask why the hate? Are we just stand back and watch when everyone else gets props. Puertoricans have been in the Hip-Hop game from day ONE! The only thing is that we where elbowed out. Producers would not produce Puertorican/Latino artists because they thought we couldnt sell. This is why I am SOOO Happy with the Reggaeton movement. We are finally getting our Hip-Hop props. Black folk should be more openminded in supporting our artists. It is only fair. This article make me think that Puertoricans should start rethinking who our real friends are.

THE AFRICAN TRIBAL RHYTHMS AND MUSICAL TRADITIONS SURVIVED THE TRANSPORTATION OF MILLIONS OF AFRICAN’S TO AMERICA AND AFTER OVER 400 YRS OF SLAVERY IN AMERICA THE OLD SOUNDS OF AFRICA BECAME THE SOUNDS OF THE AFRICAN AMERICANS. BLACK PEOPLE WERE RAPPING RHYTHMIC USE OF SPOKEN WORDS BACK THEN. BLACK PLANTATION WORKERS BEGAN TO SING TRIBAL CHANTS AGAINST THE WHITE MANS OPPRESIVE SOCIETY. THE GOD FATHER OF SOUL “JAMES BROWN” 1933 TO 2006 RIP WAS ALSO A MAJOR INFLUENCE ON THE TECHNIQUE OF RAPPING AND BREAKDANCING. EVERYTHING BLACK PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENT DO, YOU PUERTO RICANS COPY N MIMIC US, AND TRY TO MAKE A HISTORY ALONG SIDE WITH BLACK PEOPLE. KISS OUR ANCENSTORS BLACK ASSES AND MY BLACK ASS TOO. YOU PUERTO RICANS WAS NOT EVEN IN AMERICA WHEN BLACK PEOPLE BEGAN RAPPING RHYTHMIC SEMI-SONGS. YOU PUERTO RICANS STARTED COMING TO AMERICA IN THE WHAT THE 1950′s? HOWEVER DJ KOOL HERC, AFRICA BAMBAATAA AND GRANDMASTER FLASH WHO ARE ALL OF AFRICAN DESCENDANT/IN GENERAL BLACK PEOPLE, CREATED AND EXPERIMENTED CUTTING AND SCRATCHING AND MIXING 2 COPIES OF THE SAME RECORD. BEFORE YOU PUERTO RICANS COPIED AND MIMIC THEM. SINCE WHEN HAVE YOU PUERTO RICANS BEEN USING RHYMING SLANG? EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT RHYMING SLANG STARTED AND BEGIN WITH BLACK PEOPLE, BUST THIS IN THE 70′S BLACK PIMPS WERE TALKING RHYMING SLANG IT WAS CALLED STREET JIVE. THE BLACK PEOPLE WERE HALF SINGING/THE RHYTHMIC STREET TALK OF RAPPING. PUERTO RICANS DIDNOT CREATE RAP.SO GET THAT OUTTA YA HEAD. BLACK PEOPLE DON’T LET THEM RE-WRITE THEMSELVES AS EQUAL CREATORS IN OUR ORIGINAL MUSIC CREATIONS. PUERTO RICANS COPIED AND WILL ALWAYS COPY BLACK PEOPLE GLOBALLY. RIGHT NOW PUERTO RICANS ARE CURRENTLY COPYING OUR JAMAICAN BROTHAS REGGAE MUSIC. HOWEVER REGGAETON IS LACKING SOUL OF THE REAL ORIGINAL REGGAE. BLACK PEOPLE GLOBALLY WE ARE A UNIVERSAL PEOPLE WE ARE ALWAYS CREATING NEW DANCE MOVEMENTS AND NEW RHYTHMS, WILL ALWAYS BE MOCKED AND COPIED OTHERS BECAUSE OTHERS DON’T CREATE NOTHING UNTIL WE CREATED IT FIRST.

PUERTO RICANS COPY OUR STYLES OF DRESS, PUERTO RICANS COPY OUR DANCES, NOTE BLACK PEOPLE CREATED BREAKDANCING BACK IN 1969, PUERTO RICANS CAME RIGHT BEHIND BLACK PEOPLE AS THEY ALWAYS DO, AFTER BLACK GANGS DROPPPED BREAKDANCING AND WAS OUT-OF-STYLE IN THE 70′S, THE PUERTO RICANS GRABBED THE DANCE AND ARE ALSO TRYING TO NOW SAY THEY CREATED THE DANCE. PUERTO RICANS ARE ALSO NOW TRYING TO SAY THEY CREATE RAP/HIP-HOP WHAT ARE YOU PUERTO RICANS THAT MUCH FULL OF THIEVERY THAT YOUR WILLING TO STEAL OUR CULTURE? PUERTO RICANS COPY OUR HAIR BRAIDS AND CORNROLLING THIER HAIR. PUERTO RICANS ARE EVEN STARTING TO DREAD LOC THIER HAIR, PUERTO RICANS ARE COPYING OUR MANNERISMS OUR SPEECH OUR SLANGS SUCH AS THE WORD NIGGA. AS IF THEY WAS SIDE BY SIDE WITH AFRICAN AMERICANS WHEN THE WHITE MAN WAS CALLING BLACK PEOPLE NIGGERS AND HANGING BLACK PEOPLE FROM TREES. YOU SPICS NEED TO KNOW THAT BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE USING THAT WORD IS OUT OF HISTORICAL INJURY. WHY DO YOU PUERTO RICANS SO LOOSLY USE THE WORD NIGGER/NIGGA WHEN YOU CAN USE THE WORD SPIC TO EACHOTHER, YOU NEED TO NOTE THAT NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE LIKE TO HEAR THE WORD NIGGER/NIGGA AS LOOSLY AS YOU SPICS ARE USING IT AROUND OUR ELDER AFRICAN-AMERICAN BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA. YOUR A DISRESPECFUL BUNCH OF LATIN WHITE BASTARDS, THIS IS HOW MUCH YOU SPICS ARE IMITATING BLACK PEOPLE. MEANING OF PUERTO RICANS MEANS TO COPY THE ACTIONS, APPEARENCE, MANNERISM AND SPEECH OF BLACK PEOPLE. BUST THIS BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I SAW A SITE THAT MEXICANS INDIANS ARE SAYING THAT PUERTO RICANS HAVE STOLE THIER FOOD RECIPES AND CALLED IT THERE OWN, IM NOT MAKING THIS UP. THIS PUERTO RICAN RAGGAETON IS ALSO COPIED FROM THE BLACK PEOPLE OF PANAMA PUERTO RICANS STOLE THAT AND MAKING LOTS OF MONEY OFF OF THIER MUSIC, PUERTO RICANS ALSO COPIED SALSA MUSIC FROM THE AFRICANS. THE TRUTH OF IT ALL IS THAT PUERTO RICANS ARE CULTURE MOCKERS. THEY ARE STEALING EVERYBODIES SHYT AND FAKING IT TO BE THIER OWN. STOP THE MADNESS PUERTO RICANS.

  • DA TRUTH

    PUTTING-THIS-SELF-CREATED-PUERTO-RICAN-LIE-TO-REST-ONCE-FOR-ALL. MANY OF YOU PUERTO RICANS DON’T KNOW BLACK HISTORY THATS WHY ITS SO EASY FOR YOU PUERTO RICANS TO SAY THAT YOU HELPED TO CREATE THE RAP/HIP-HOP CULTURE. IN THE BEGINNING WAS AFRICA. THE AFRICAN TRIBAL RHYTHMS AND MUSICAL TRADITIONS SURVIVED THE TRANSPORTATION OF KIDNAPPED MILLIONS OF AFRICAN’S TO AMERICA, TO JAMAICA, TO HAITI, AND TO MANY OTHER LANDS, AFTER OVER 400 YRS OF SLAVERY IN AMERICA AND OTHER LANDS, THE OLD SOUNDS OF AFRICA BECAME THE SOUNDS OF THE AFRICAN AMERICANS THE JAMAICANS THE HAITIANS AND ALL OTHERS. THOSE BLACK PEOPLE WERE ALREADY RAPPING RHYTHMIC USE OF SPOKEN WORDS BACK THEN. BLACK PLANTATION WORKERS BEGAN TO SING TRIBAL CHANTS AGAINST THE WHITE MANS OPPRESIVE SOCIETY. THE JAMAICANS ALSO WERE SINGING TRIBAL CHANTS. SPEEDING UP TO NOW “THE GOD FATHER OF SOUL” “JAMES BROWN” 1933 TO 2006 RIP WAS ALSO A MAJOR INFLUENCE ON THE TECHNIQUE OF RAPPING AND BREAKDANCING. EVERYTHING BLACK PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENTANTS DO, YOU PUERTO RICANS HAVE TO COPY AND MIMIC US, AND ARE NOW TRYING TO MAKE A HISTORY ALONG SIDE WITH BLACK PEOPLE. KISS OUR ANCENSTORS BLACK ASSES, AND MY BLACK ASS TOO. YOU PUERTO RICANS WAS NOT EVEN IN AMERICA WHEN BLACK PEOPLE WERE RAPPING RHYTHMIC SEMI-SONGS. YOU PUERTO RICANS STARTED COMING TO AMERICA IN THE 1950′s? SPEEDING UP THE ERA TO THE 70′S. HOWEVER DJ KOOL HERC, AFRICA BAMBAATAA AND GRANDMASTER FLASH WHO ARE ALL OF AFRICAN DESCENDANT/BLACK PEOPLE, BEGAN TO EXPERIMENTED AND CREATE CUTTING AND SCRATCHING AND MIXING 2 COPIES OF THE SAME RECORD. BEFORE YOU PUERTO RICANS COPIED AND MIMIC THEM. SINCE WHEN HAVE YOU PUERTO RICANS BEEN USING RHYMING SLANG? EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT RHYMING SLANG STARTED AND BEGIN WITH BLACK PEOPLE, BUST THIS IN THE 70′S BLACK PIMPS WERE TALKING RHYMING SLANG IT WAS CALLED STREET JIVE. THE BLACK PEOPLE WERE HALF SINGING/THE RHYTHMIC STREET TALK/RAPPING. PUERTO RICANS DIDNOT CREATE RAP. SO GET THAT PUERTO RICANS LIE OUTTA YA HEADS. TO BLACK PEOPLE DON’T LET THE PUERTO RICANS RE-WRITE THEMSELVES AS EQUAL CREATORS IN OUR ORIGINAL MUSIC CREATIONS. PUERTO RICANS COPIED AND WILL ALWAYS COPY BLACK PEOPLE GLOBALLY. RIGHT NOW PUERTO RICANS ARE CURRENTLY COPYING OUR JAMAICAN BROTHAS REGGAE MUSIC. HOWEVER REGGAETON IS LACKING SOUL OF THE REAL ORIGINAL REGGAE. BLACK PEOPLE GLOBALLY WE ARE A UNIVERSAL PEOPLE WE ARE ALWAYS CREATING NEW DANCE MOVEMENTS AND NEW RHYTHMS, AND WILL ALWAYS BE MOCKED AND COPIED OTHERS BECAUSE THEY CAN’T CREATE NOTHING UNTIL WE BLACK PEOPLE CREATED IT FIRST. SO SAY IT LOUD WERE BLACK AND WERE PROUD! BLACK UNITY.YOU PUERTO RICANS NEED TO BURN YOUR PUERTO RICAN FLAG AND RAISE THE RED, BLACK AND GREEN FLAG, BECAUSE YOU PUERTO RICANS ARE ALWAYS GONNA BE IN BLACK PEOPLE BITERS, YOU PUERTO RICAN’S/LATINOS DONT CREATE NOTHING UNTIL BLACKS CREATE IT FIRST. EXAMPLE: THE WHITE SPAINARD MAN, YOUR GENETIC WHITE DADDIES OR PAPI’S USED TO CALL YOU PUERTO RICAN’S SPICS BUT INSTEAD OF IDENTIFYING YOURSELVES WITH CALLING EACHOTHER SPICS, YOU PERFER TO COPY BLACK PEOPLES SLANG WORDS SUCH A NIGGER/NIGGA. TO THAT FAT STINKY SPIC FAT JOE AND J-HO AND ALL OTHERS, DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO MOCK AND DICK AND CLIT RIDE BLACK PEOPLE SO MUCH, THAT YOU HAVE TO USE THE NIGGA WORD? WHY NOT USE SPIC OR SPIC-O-ROO’S.U PUERTO RICANS ARE SO UNORIGINAL. BLACK PEOPLE USE THE NIGGER/NIGGA WORD OUT OF HISTORICAL INJURY WHERE AS YOU MOCKING ASS PUERTO RICAN’S ARE USING IT AS A SLANG OR MAYBE EVEN AS A TERM OF FLAT OUT NIGGER TO BLACK PEOPLE. AFTER ALL YOU PUERTO RICANS ARE STILL THE WHITE MANS SEED.WE ARE PROTECTED BY THE RED THE BLACK AND THE GREEN SISSIES.

    THE THING ABOUT PUERTORICANS HAVING NOTHING TO DO WITH HIP-HOP IS A STRAIGHT UP LIE. WE HAVE BEEN THERE FROM DAY ONE. BY THE WAY BOMBA AND IMPROVISANDO ARE TWO ART FORMS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING ON IN PUERTORICO SINCE DAY ONE. THEY INVOLVE RYMING. IF BLACKS HATE US SO MUCH WHY DO THEY HATE ON US ALL YEAR THEN COME TO OUR PARADE? NOT ONLY DO BLACKS COME TO OUR PARADE BUT THEY CAUSE MOST OF THE INCEDENTS. WHEN THEY ASSAULT WOMEN AFTER THE PARADE THE MEDIA BLAMES US WHEN IT IS REALLY THEM. MAYBE THE PUERTORICAN DAY PARADE SHOULD NOT FEATURE AFRICAN AMERICAN ARTISTS IN THE PARADE. MAYBE PUERTORICANS SHOULD NOT WELCOME AFRICAN AMERICAN ARTISTS LIKE WE ALWAYS DO. YOU WANT TO TAKE UP FOR A MEXICAN SAYING THAT WE STOLE THERE FOOD. GO AND TRY TO BE A FRIEND OF A MEXICAN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. PUERTORICANS ARE THE ONLY STUPID ONES TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH AFRICAN AMERICANS AND GET STABBED IN THE BACK.

  • BKRIKAN

    SOME OF THE COMMENTS MADE IN SOME OF THE PREVIOUS POSTS ARE DANGEROUS. FOR ONE NOT ONE OF THE POLICE OFFICERS THAT ASSASINATED DARYL BELL WHERE PUERTORICAN. THE ONE THAT SHOT THE MOST SHOTS WAS LEBANESSE WHICH MEANS MIDDLE EASTERN. ONE WAS 1/2 HATIAN AND 1/2 MEXICAN. THE REMAINING TWO WHERE AFRICAN AMERICAN. THE INCEDENT INVOLVING THE OFF DUTY CORRECTIONS OFFICER WAS SIMPLY SELF DEFENCE. TWO MEN ROLLED UP ON ONE MAN WHO WAS DRIVING WITH HIS INFANT AND WIFE. WHAT WOULD ANYONE DO WHEN THEY ARE IN A CAR WITH THERE WIFE AND NEWBORN CHILD? THE SOLE WITNESS TESTIFIED THAT THE OFF DUTY PUERTORICAN OFFICER WAS DEFENDING HIMSELF FROM ONE OF THEM MEN THAT SAID THAT HE HAD A GUN. GUESS WHAT? THAT SOLE WITNESS WAS A BLACK MAN. I AM NOT SIDING WITH THE CORRECTIONS OFFICER BECAUSE HE IS PUERTORICAN BUT BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE RIGHT. A FEW YEARS AGO AN UNDERCOVER DETECTIVE SHOT AND KILLED PATRICK DORISMOND FOR SAYING NO TO DRUGS. THE OFFICER THAT KILLED HIM WAS PUERTORICAN. THAT WAS WRONG. BUT REMEMBER THIS HE IS NOT DOING THIS BEHIND THE PUERTORICAN FLAG BUT THE WALL OF BLUE. THE NYPD OPRESSES ALL MINORITES AND THE BLACK AND LATINO OFFICERS ARE MERELY UPHOLDING THE OPPRESIVE SYSTEM. JUST MY OPINION.

  • Rude Boy

    Everything DA TRUTH said is true. I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THESE NON BLACKS WANTING TO TAKE CREDIT FOR EVERY FUCKING THING WE CEATE. YOU THINK A BLACK MAN CAN GO AND SAY HE HAD AN HAND IN THE CREATION OF CLASSICAL MUSIC. HE WOULD GET LAUGHED AT BIG TIME. SO WHY THE HELL DO YOU COME HERE LIKE YOU HAD A HAND IN BLACK MUSIC CREATION. FUCK YALL. BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP TO THIS FAKE BULLSHIT UNITY MENTALITY THESE MOTHERFUCKERS HATE US AS MUCH AS WHITE PEOPLE DO DON’T FUCKING FORGET THAT. DUMB BLACKS ALLOW P’CANS TO CALL THEM NIGGA. THEY ARE NOT ONE OF US PERIOD. GET IT TO YOUR HEADS MOTHERFUCKERS WITHOUT JAMAICAN DANCEHALL THERE WOULD BE NO REGGAETON FUCKING IDIOTS. GIVE RESPECT WHERE IT IS DUE. ALSO DON’T ASSUME ALL BLACK MEN WANT TO FUCK YOUR WOMEN. I STRICTLY DEAL WITH MY AFRICAN QUEENS FUCK Y’ALL.

    First of all i never bought a copy of this magazine and i neva will.This guy is just a watered downed racist writer.its not our fault we are beating hip hop out we dont need american radio stations playing our sh%t .we were still doin good with out it.If you really knew the facts about reggaeton you’d realize we put out an album every other 3 to 6 months while hip hop takes a year or two to produce a half a**ed album

    LOL @ MR.OG SNOOPY. We dont take banana boats to get here we take airplaines. And it wasnt a choice. I guess Puertoricans are stupid for participating in immigration issues. It seems like they only turn against us once they become citizens.

    Who hired Byron Crawford in the first place? *Worst columnist ever!! – You are a small minded person who maybe had a rough childhood? Stop calling others out because you can’t stand it. You don’t like the music, you can ban it in your own little fucked up world.

  • LATINOS DONT CREATE NOTHING UNTIL THEY COPY IT FROM BLACK PEOPLE

    REGGAETON IS NO THREAT TO BLACK PEOPLES MUSIC, BECAUSE LATINOS ARE GONNA BE STUCK ON THAT SAME REGGAETON BEAT FOR 1000 YRS TO COME. REGGAETON IS JUST A LAMER FOR THE LAME LATINOS. LATINOS WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO MIMIC BLACK POEPLE IT DON’T MATTER. BLACK N PROUD!

  • CrazyAssMexican

    DAMN!! where do i begin, first of all, we may speak different languages, but we come from the same struggle. just like there are different types of black people there are different types of brown people. reggaeton is from the middle americas, it has nothing to do with mexicans. and so what if its out playing other genres, supply and demand vato, the formula’s simple deal with it. as far as genres making an impact on radio its the chicano rap scene thats next. if theres a problem in hip-hop why would you blame reggaeton, who are you gonna blame next? second, it started as an issue about music and it turned into an issue about race. if i remember correctly in the beginning of hip hop black people were trying to imitate white people like rockstars, wearing boots, tight ass pants, make up, glitter and shit. all that baggy clothes shit, started with us, dickies, ben davis, carhart, chucks, and not to mention lowriders and zoot suiters. we were fly from the beginning baby, all original!!! it really all started in the prisons, and just like we’re runnin them, we’re gonna run the streets, nimodo es automatico. and name one rapper that hasn’t tried rappin in spanish, from jay-z to 2pac, shit i heard bun-b almost do a whole verse in spanish. plus in the actual real streets, in all the hoods and barrios we got respect, shit we’re the only other race that can actually say the word nigga. and third if anybody is truly an american its native americans and mexicans. half of this shit was ours anyway, and nobody is an american without a hyphen in front of it anyway, mexican-american, african-american, whatever. we can play the race card all day but fuck that, out of all the points that we could make this is a special one. name one rapper that doesn’t idolize Antonio Montana (Scarface) es cubano, latino. so stop makin excuses for yourself. oh yeah, and a big chinga tu madre to that lil nigga ONE,puto.

  • Anthony Smith

    I must say that it all depends on the particular artists who is making the song. In my opinion, reggaeton by some artists talk about tragedy, love, and sorrow;it is this type of reggaeton that sounds better. However, the majority of the RADIO-AIRED reggaeton talks about sex, drugs, and murder;these are the worse types that many have a problem with. Certain reggaeton sounds are good, but there is a lot of repitition in the genre which if one was to listen to it everyday, then it may get old. It is the same way for most music genres also. As for me, I tend to listen more to eastern music than western music(music from the americas and it’s surrounding islands). I like music from Africa,Europe, and western/southern Asia. Reggaeton is ADEQUATE for a western music though. Some of you racist people on this website need to realize that the human races came from one master race.We are all the same so stop fuckin’ with each other!

  • Cd

    the hell?
    that is some straight up rascist mess right there.
    Is hip-hop for blacks only or something, I never got that memo, you musta forgot to send those out.
    So wot, you can’t stand Reggae, reggaeton, but its all hip hop, you probably can’t stand sould or jazz nietha, and you call YOURSELF black? shame on you bet you don’t even know the history of hip hop.
    yea you go wikipedia that ish and get back to me.

  • will 15

    african americans are americans

    mexican- americans are mexican with U.S citizenship

  • tangle

    First off, have people forgotten where hip hop came from? The Jamaican immigrants who moved to New York city created hip hop based on raggae music. Nobody calls hip hop a “stolen” music genre even though a large portion of it was borrowed from another culture. But i guess because that other culture was black it was cool right? Muthafuckas dont realize its White people who want to see latinos and blacks hate each other. It makes them more money. They love it when we kill each other. The last thing they would want to see is the oppressed people of this country come together and change things for each of their races for the better. Nope. You dumbasses are falling into this by making distinctions which aren’t even there. Latinos are and have always been “niggas” if you look at it historically. I dont love raggaeton music, but if it brings some poor people off the streets and makes their communities a little better off I want to see it succeed.

    peace

  • rainese

    Im sick of latinos trying to divide African creations. Hip-hop historically and equally comes from both African Americans and Jamaicans. Hiphop is Black peoples creation. You latinos copied our shyt like everything else black people create. You Latinos are backbitters. and U latinos need to stop trying to divide our Black brothers and Black sisters. African Americans and Jamaicans are both from Africa we are in different parts of the world but we are the same people from Africa. Further Tangle you know nothing much about your own history how you gonna speak on our Black History. What nerves you got.

    • Rafi

      All i can say is fuck you all who say that reggaeton is garbage or mexican. Reggaeton is/was underground music dat started in puerto rico not mexico. Im sure there are reggaeton artists dat are mexican but dat doesnt make reggaeton mexican. And as for saying that latinos stole hip hop from black people is bullshit! Now im puerto rican so my comment may seem a little biased but if u knew me then u would understand what i mean. When it comes to music im pretty open. I mainly listen to Rap,Rock,and Spanish music(not just reggaeton)

    okayyy… lets clear the dust here… Reggeton originates from Puerto rico and all those Caribbean countries… so dont get Mexicans involved… inform your selves before posting, and i hate reggeton for 2 reasons and i stand the same way towards hip hop even though they are very different… Lyrics are very Derogitive towards women, and justify the perversity of people in a sick way, in some places they even start “perreando” or hump dancing in public places, e.e which is disgusting, and whats worse is that some parents are fine with that, it shows our society has De-evolved into something very primitive.
    Secondly it talks a lot of drug related content that this world doesn’t need and actually don’t really try to cover it up so people would figure it out really fast.
    i’m not saying that preference in music is bad cause that’s what makes us different but it seems like common sense in this world is non existent. I have a strong bias but i get my bias from facts i see and inform my self before i make a quick judgement towards what i think its correct. Nuff Said
