View Full Version : Gangsta Rap: Bought and paid for by those profiting from prisons holding young criminals

This latest article by Joseph P Farrell on his Giza Death Star website sent a chill up and down my spine.

It seems that those who profit from the privately run prisons in the United States, are also those behind the shift of rock music to gangsta rap, encouraging criminal activity in young Americans.

Thus the U.S. has ended up with more youth imprisoned than any other nation. The U.S. has more prisoners than any other nation, and a higher percentage imprisoned than any other nation. Almost one quarter of the world's prisoners are in U.S. prisons.

The "War on Drugs", corrupt police and judicial systems, the failed school systems, the failed communities and families (all especially in inner cities) and gangsta rap that sings (well, if you can call that singing) the praises of criminal activity are various ways that this stream of "criminals" is fed to the private, run for profit, prison system in the U.S., that earns profits in proportion to the number of inmates in their prisons.

Here's Farrell's article on this: PRIVATE PRISONS AND CORPORATE (C)RAP “MUSIC” (https://gizadeathstar.com/2018/11/private-prisons-and-corporate-crap-music/):

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every now and then, something so odd, so stunning, comes into my email inbox that I have to pass it along, even though it lacks that kind of direct corroboration that one wants when a stunning claim is made. That's the case with this article, or rather, letter, that was spotted by Ms. D.W. and shared with me. It concerns rap music. Most regular readers here know that I'm not a fab. I find its unrelenting iambic pentameter, its oftentimes gutter "lyrics", the baseness and coarseness of the "values" it promotes up to and including violent assault and murder, the constant thumping of a drum beat, to be mind-numbing and irritating. I can't listen to more than a few seconds of it.

The mind-numbing aspect of it I have always thought to be deliberate.

And if this letter is to be believed, then that thought was confirmed:

"The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation"

It's almost too much to believe, but the author or authoress of the letter leaves no doubt what (allegedly) happened:



"
Quickly after the meeting began, one of my industry colleagues (who shall remain nameless like everyone else) thanked us for attending. He then gave the floor to a man who only introduced himself by first name and gave no further details about his personal background. I think he was the owner of the residence but it was never confirmed. He briefly praised all of us for the success we had achieved in our industry and congratulated us for being selected as part of this small group of “decision makers”. At this point I begin to feel slightly uncomfortable at the strangeness of this gathering. The subject quickly changed as the speaker went on to tell us that the respective companies we represented had invested in a very profitable industry which could become even more rewarding with our active involvement. He explained that the companies we work for had invested millions into the building of privately owned prisons and that our positions of influence in the music industry would actually impact the profitability of these investments. I remember many of us in the group immediately looking at each other in confusion. At the time, I didn’t know what a private prison was but I wasn't the only one. Sure enough, someone asked what these prisons were and what any of this had to do with us. We were told that these prisons were built by privately owned companies who received funding from the government based on the number of inmates. The more inmates, the more money the government would pay these prisons. It was also made clear to us that since these prisons are privately owned, as they become publicly traded, we’d be able to buy shares. Most of us were taken back by this. Again, a couple of people asked what this had to do with us. At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons. Immediately, silence came over the room. You could have heard a pin drop. I remember looking around to make sure I wasn't dreaming and saw half of the people with dropped jaws. My daze was interrupted when someone shouted, “Is this a f****** joke?” At this point things became chaotic. Two of the men who were part of the “unfamiliar” group grabbed the man who shouted out and attempted to remove him from the house. A few of us, myself included, tried to intervene. One of them pulled out a gun and we all backed off. They separated us from the crowd and all four of us were escorted outside. My industry colleague who had opened the meeting earlier hurried out to meet us and reminded us that we had signed agreement and would suffer the consequences of speaking about this publicly or even with those who attended the meeting. I asked him why he was involved with something this corrupt and he replied that it was bigger than the music business and nothing we’d want to challenge without risking consequences. We all protested and as he walked back into the house I remember word for word the last thing he said, “It’s out of my hands now. Remember you signed an agreement.” He then closed the door behind him. The men rushed us to our cars and actually watched until we drove off.

...

As the months passed, rap music had definitely changed direction. I was never a fan of it but even I could tell the difference. Rap acts that talked about politics or harmless fun were quickly fading away as gangster rap started dominating the airwaves. Only a few months had passed since the meeting but I suspect that the ideas presented that day had been successfully implemented. It was as if the order has been given to all major label executives. The music was climbing the charts and most companies when more than happy to capitalize on it. Each one was churning out their very own gangster rap acts on an assembly line. Everyone bought into it, consumers included. Violence and drug use became a central theme in most rap music. I spoke to a few of my peers in the industry to get their opinions on the new trend but was told repeatedly that it was all about supply and demand. Sadly many of them even expressed that the music reinforced their prejudice of minorities.

"

The implications of the allegations are clear: There was a clear social engineering program to (1) infiltrate a popular trend, to co-opt it, and to redirect its focus into advocacy of criminal behavior in order (2) to fill up private prisons and turn profits for the shareholders, and, (3) as a "side benefit", to exploit the criminalizing trend to create a stereotype of minorities and economic classes and further culturally divide the country. The private prisons soon filled, mostly with young kids, at first predominantly African-American, then reaching out to grab other young people who were exposed to the "music", whites, Hispanics, and so on. We all know how peer pressure works, especially in high school, where to be "cool" and "accepted" means you listen to the latest "cool" music group. The social engineers could count on this to spread the contagion.

To the letter-writer's list of the aims and effects of this "program" one might add a fourth possible long-term goal: to so barbarize music that those who exposed themselves constantly to it were "dumbed down" and cut off from other more genuine musical forms with a history and tradition: jazz, rock, country, and (here it comes) "classical."

The question is, does one believe the letter?

I do, and here's why: in my last book Microcosm and Medium I pointed out how the "deep state" made a deliberate post-war effort to penetrate and manipulate the world of the arts and music, and to drive them deliberately into modernist forms; "traditionalists need not apply." It happened everywhere, and the goal was to promote a kind of antinomian freedom from all previous tradition, rules, canon, custom, and mores in order to demonstrate that the West - as opposed to the Soviet bloc - was genuinely free. In other words, decadence and antinomianism were drafted; the west was "free" because it could flout all traditional artistic boundaries. In the process of researching that book, I ran across David McGowan's Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon, a book that exposes the stunning manipulation of the rock groups associated with Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and 1970s. Every one had clear ties to the "military-industrial complex", and no group's art went anywhere near politics or cultural critique. It looked to me then - as I wrote my own book - and looks to me now, as if this was the "popular prong" of the same effort to manipulate art and music and to socially engineer the culture by means of it. By any measure, those early efforts were successful.

This letter, taken in that context, is showing the same pattern; it is contextually-historically corroborated, if nothing else. And it also says something else: those early "social engineering experiments" at the deliberate manipulation and promotion of certain types of art were so successful, that they were able to fine tune it for specific goals.

So, yes, I believe this meeting took place, and that the deliberate effort was made. Art, and music, are potent forms of mind manipulation and social engineering, and this letter is a reminder that art can both reflect, and create, a state of the soul. With enough exposure to ugliness, the soul becomes ugly. Ms. S.T. commented on my book Microcosm and Medium that "emptiness is the host to entrainment."

That is as aptly and succinctly put as can be, and I couldn't agree more.

See you on the flip side...

Here is one rapper, Wise Intelligent, talking about this very issue. How the climate changed.

Parts of transcript:


Hip Hop changing from positive to negative was not a consequence of history, it was not a circumstance of history, it was nothing that just happened on its own. It had nothing to do with the changing of the times, it had everything to do with the fact that there are people in this particular society who wants to see us exactly where we are. And we can not let that point allude us. These are the facts, how do we know?

1967, Kerner Commission report on urban disorder. When black people said «Yo! We are tired of this system. This system is oppressing us.» So we rebelled against the system, we burned things. We had enough. He did his little report on what caused these riots. What caused these riots? He said it was young children who started these riots and what was motivating them was a high self esteem and an enhanced racial pride. He said the majority of the rioters were high school drop outs, but they had a higher political orientation than their peers who did not drop out. And they saw the system as their enemy so they attacked it in the right circumstance.

Fast forward to 1992. Same thing. Number 1 record on the radio was «Fight the Power» (by Public Enemy), Rodney King gets beaten before the world. The black youth rebelled against the system. Again. And what primed them? Positive hip hop. Fight the Power, X Clan, Brand Nubian. You had these groups out here who were politically orienting black kids in the right direction. Giving them the proper promptes they needed so that they can respond properly to oppression.

In 1967 he saw that the self esteem was fueling this, so to not make that happen again he flooded the airways with black exploitation movies; ****** Charlie and the Return of ****** Charlie. These were movies, hip hop did not start calling people niggers. We had Shaft etc. But these black exploitation movies brought down the self esteem and the racial pride so that the kids will not rebel against the system of oppression. Then came 1992. We used our money to see Farrakhan speak as opposed to go into a strip club.

I believe it was J T the Bigga Figga who said that the label executives came to him and said «Yo, brother, we need you to talk about guns and whores.» That happens. I have been in those meetings. The artist Young Buck has a song on his album that talks about police terrorism. The label said absolutely not, you can not put that record on the album because it might create an atmosphere that might put police officers lives in danger. So they took the record off but they let him keep the other 14 songs on the album that talked about killing black youth.

So this is what we are dealing with, not a circumstance or consequence of history. The environment that we are embedded in puts us in a situation where we feel we have to manouver and play the game and water our message down. But they intentionally shifted the paradigm to get us exactly where we are right now. Right now we are feeding the prison industrial complex. Our kids are going to prison because they are promoting these records daily. Its cool to go to jail now, they glorifying these things.

I've been aware about this clandestine secret meeting between record execs and the prison industry before.
Although there is not a shred of evidence to back it up, I find myself looking at it as more than plausible.
I was there in the mid-eighties watching this transformation take place.
My best friend in 1986 did a 180 degree turn about from rock music to gangsta rap.
It was strange to watch.
He was always more concerned with the image and social appeal of music rather than the actual music.
He was buying vinyl LPs of NWA, 2-Live-Crew and Iced Tea as soon as they were released.
He also bought a few albums that seemed to have redeeming qualities to them such as Public Enemy, I won't put Public Enemy in the same group as the others because they actually spoke about society at large and social inequalities rather than glorifying crime and violence.
If you watch "Straight Outta Compton" the recent movie biography of NWA it is very easy to see a hidden hand manipulating their rise to fame.
The producer Jerry Heller seems very much in line with a CIA or Prison Corporation agent, as does Suge Knight in my opinion.
Suge Knight seems very much like he was an agent of these folks.
People are very easy to sway especially in their youth and I remember listening to this music and knowing for a fact it had the ability to steer people the wrong way.

I’m learning a lot about sub conscious / unconscious workings, which increasingly seem connected to the so called emotional world, also called the astral… I wonder if further could be found in ET research and beyond, as a catch-all realm for controlling humans, but eventually to become exposed by mind interfacing technology. Just how the evidence will be accepted and shared can likely come from alternative outlets, sharing experiences, all of which vary.

Electronic telepathy should help exposure-credibility. Interfacing mind with electronics is how i imagine it. I’m expecting a startling breakthrough, as startling as were radios first coming to living rooms. TIs already give enough warnings, that it already happens, somehow, as if comparable to first radiobands, as were SW, LW, AM, FM etc… but more complex than just center frequencies or one coding. Barbaric telepathy is used maliciously, but resistances are to be found. Where there is a will, a way is to be found.

More on the barbaric point, it seems to be the same old feudal-evil-lord, but very sophisticated with complex interventions to idiotize and robotize humans. People who just won’t take the struggle of life more seriously, to climb away and figure life out, can fall victim. The world also needs to break through, beyond the more or less sedated class of the lullabed-unaware. The emotional realm penetrates and captivates consciousness in so many ways. It is so hard to see the psychological workings of this, but seeing is the only way beyond it.

The Laurel Canyon phenomena seems realer with time passing, reflecting on my own troubles in the 60s and barely climbing away by the 70s. What might of helped me the most was taking the inward idea of evolution to heart. Making self-help efforts grow, regardless of my social status. While the disadvantaged deserved some empathy, an evidence of ‘climbing’ distinguished the worthy. I could barely decipher lyrics of most songs and tended to interpret more personalized ideas there instead.

Dumbing down uses of music definitely kills consciousness development. Yet somewhere the raising of consciousness keeps a ladder available, for those who will climb for self evolution.

There was a video posted on Avalon some years back regarding this.
Said exactly what Paul posted.
A witness at the meeting of these people just could not go along with it--one said I can sleep with your 14year old daughter and there is nothing you can do about it.
Cant remember who the witness was but there was a whole thread on this subject.
Its good Paul has brought it up.
If these people prison bound knew that they were being manipulated into gang warfare, rape, drugs etc etc by thevery ones they think they are fighting would they believe it?
The late Dr David Hawkins stated that it wasent just the words but a fequence embeded into the music--subliminal that promoted all that is evil.
He also said that it was promoted by the lower astral which feeds on fear and all negative emotions.

Thats as best my memory can do.

I think David is right, and music is sooo powerful in this respect.

I'm dubious about fear being a negative emotion though. Same thing with sadness, I don't think they're entirely negative feelings. An example of a negative feeling would be "horrified". What evil wants is to horrify us - that's what I think anyway.

Paul sounds a bit horrified to me, enough so that I didn't even read the entire posting...

I can relate to what DNA said about music tastes. Mine have been changing as well, and it's not as if I can control what I like. I like 2 live crew.... I guess it's just so vile that it's funny :/

There is a massive upsurge of young teens in London dying from stab wounds and a shooting of two fourteen year olds.
The bullet went through one and lodged deep in his friend standing in front of him.
They had their backs to the youth in a car who fired the shot.
Both boys stable but the injuries serious.

He starts talking about gangsta rap at about 9:20 in.

He mentions the rap artist Hopsin as having very insightful and intelligent lyrics that point out the fallacy of gangsta rap, but points out how such artists rarely if ever get mainstream popularity.The video below contains offensive language but I find it pretty good.

Lauryn Hill - Everything Is Everything

Everything is everything
What is meant to be, will be
After winter, must come spring
Change, it comes eventually

I wrote these words for everyone who struggles in their youth
Who won't accept deception, instead of what is truth
It seems we lose the game
Before we even start to play
Who made these rules? (Who made these rules?)
We're so confused (We're so confused)
Easily led astray
Let me tell ya that

Without doubt this album back in 1998 was life changing for many young people. However despite being a NO.1 hit in most western countries and winning countless awards, she never made another album? 15 years later On May 6, 2013, Hill was sentenced to serve three months in prison for failing to file taxes/tax fraud and three months' house arrest afterwards as part of a year of supervised probation.

I have posted this several times before on PA, but without doubt she explains exactly why her career was destroyed. AMAZING!!!!

Wow, it makes full sense... Now I can understand why there aren't any truly incredible up and coming Rock Bands anymore. The music industry don't want or need them. As they have no use for them in their agendas. This is sick.....

I find this thread enlightening. Pair gangster rap with "the war on drugs" and you have a winner!!!! A winner for identity politics,alienation, race division, the building up of the prison for profit systems. I don't know why but it has taken me years to see the intense level of programming that is bombarding us at all levels. One thing that I have seen clear as day is that all systems are corrupted, and I mean all of them. There are varying degrees. It depends upon how much someone can get for the manipulation, exploitation and corruption and the music industry pays off big in many ways thus the huge distortion by those with self interests. That is one end of the spectrum, on the other end you might have one person in a nonprofit exploiting that system for their own interests...corruption almost undetectable. I believe it is these corruptions in the end that will bring this system down.

Just an added note here on Lauren Hill. She is a woman that stands behind her words.

Paul Joseph Watson does a pretty good job of explaining the effects of Pop Culture and Rap on US citizens.

:bump:

There are quite a few videos on this thread, but for anyone who's never seen it, this needs to be bumped. It's the most inspired, articulate diatribe you may ever hear. Every word of it is laser-bullseye-accurate.

I have shared this elsewhere, after being bored by ‘X-factor/noone has talent’ type shows, in their proliferation on most tv channels worldwide. Certain promoters should be requested to desist in their activities, as these are counter-productive whence the “downtrodden-dregs” think they may have a chance, without taking advantage of their localised talents. So unfair. So counter-productive. So demeaning to the poor folk who are objects of derision for the sake of ‘entertainment’.

Young girls idolize some female pop singers and get the impression that the more skin they show and the more they gyrate suggestively the more chance of success.
Sex sells.
It just soft porn.
I would hate to be a teen boy these days--hormones etc--here comes trouble.
Females without realizing devalue them selves----just my opinion.
All part of the "plan" no doubt.

You know what's always mystified me? Groupies. That they would think so little of themselves that they would sleep with someone just because they were a rock star. I just never understood that whole phenomenon.
