Kendrick Lamar Discusses Black Hippy’s Mystique & Purpose (Video)
In the late ’90s/early 2000s, there were some cool super-groups that never put albums out:
The Four Horsemen (Kurupt, Canibus, Ras Kass, Killah Priest)
The Golden State Warriors (Xzibit, Saafir, Ras Kass)
The Likwit Cru (King T, Xzibit, Tash, E-Swift, J-Ro, Defari, Madlib, Phil Da Agony, Wildchild, DJ Romes)
The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Jeru The Damaja, Afu-Ra, etc.)
Helter-Skelter (Dr. Dre & Ice Cube)
The list goes on. After just a little over two years of notoriety, Black Hippy is another group. Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q have differing opinions of the group who has officially released less than a half a dozen songs. Sometimes they say an album is coming, sometimes members say the group will never do anything more than loosely collaborate. In preparation for Rock The Bells, K.Dot weighs in on what the conglomerate means to him, given its unique history and place in the 2013 Hip-Hop space. This is pretty cool, when you think about it. The D.I.T.C. fan in me draws major correlations to Black Hippy, when you think about the differing styles, and apathy-towards-the-system approach.
