Kendrick Lamar Discusses Black Hippy’s Mystique & Purpose (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

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.
