ヴィ―ガン・ラッパー、Rza からのお願い!

Vegan Rapper Rza Urges New York City To Ban Fur

Ghostface Killah & Rza



これを受けて、ヴィーガン歴20年、スタテン島出身のラッパー集団 Wu-Tang Clan総帥、Rza こと、ロバート・ディグスが賛同、「みんなも動物保護のため、この法案をサポートしてください。」と声明文を出し、拡散を訴えました。

Rza 曰く、「この地球上に、生きたいと思わない生物なんて存在しない。」ごもっともです。

すでに、Versace、Gucchi、Prada、Michael Korsなどが、今後、毛皮製品を扱わないことを発表しています。

Wu-Goo ウータン印、食べるマリファナはいかが


そこで登場したのが、ウータン印の食べるマリファナ「Wu-Goo」です。シャオリン(ニューヨークのスタテン島)出身のヒップホップ・グループ、ウータン・クランが開発したブラウニー、「ウー・グー Killah Bee」は大麻のエキスを混ぜて開発した「食べられるマリファナ」、すべて自然な原料を使ったオーガニック・フードです。大麻の主要成分のTHC (Tetrahydrocannabinol  カンナビノイドの一種)入りなので、クサを吸ったときと同じ効果が得られるそうです。

Black History Month
Music Box 30th Anniversary @ Schomburg Center in Harlem


February 5, 2013, Video Music Box (VMB) founder and Hip Hop Icon Ralph McDaniels held his kickoff event at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Video Music Box.

Before BET, MTV, and countless others there was Video Music Box (VMB). Created in 1983 by Ralph McDaniels, VMB is a 60-minute American television program/series that was the first to cater to the growing audiences of hip-hop fans.

At the time BET wasn’t even showing real hip-hop like that till later, all they had was “Video Soul” and MTV didn’t play hip-hop at all at the time. But it didn’t matter nobody in the ‘hood had cable in 80’s anyway.

After school every kid would run home to turn to channel 31 everyday at 3:30 to watch the latest videos on VMB. Back in the days VMB was the only vehicle available to promote Hip-Hop music and culture.

It originally aired on New York City-owned public television station WNYC-TV and became one of the most influential shows to give Hip-Hop/Urban artists mainstream exposure. Over the course of time people start affectionately calling the Hip-Hop pioneer host “Uncle Ralph.”

He has also produced over 400 music videos, is an on-air personality for HOT97 Radio, and has been involved with several feature films.

At the event the upcoming VMB documentary was screened to a packed house and received loud cheers and rave reviews from the audience. The film featured artists such as: Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Lil’ Wayne, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Celia Cruz, Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff, Mary J. Blige and many others.

Congratulations Uncle Ralph.
