About The Author


  • Lenon Honor

    Very well said. And parents do act confused about how it is that their children became what they are. And yet, it is so clear to me. Hip Hop had a lot to do with it as well as television programming.

  • Peter Van Der Poel

    You role in society is to simply act as a good person, work to better those around you and work to find what gives you satisfaction. Nothing more, and nothing less. There is no need to over complicate a simple thing.

  • Ben Real

    This really resonates and I really, really think more time should be spent on exposing these “conscious frauds” in the rap industry and the whole “creation myths” of what went down early 70’s in the Bronx.. thats the real damaging part because they are just as egocentric and shallow… classic Hegelian dialectic. Good work as usual…

  • Raziel Ts

    Thank you so much Lenon Honor for making these videos because you are really helping me to go through the process of purification and refinement so i can take the next step into becoming a man.

  • Raziel Ts

    Im 20 and i had an epiphany i had never thought about it but my dad passed away when i was 4 or 5 i can’t remember correctly but i ve noticed im not a man and as you showed me on the past video i have low self esteem value and worth and i ve noticed in my whole life that it was allways hard to take the next step like first day in school first thing i learnt first kiss etc. 

  • Raziel Ts

    and in my whole live i havent found my archetype of a man so i dont have a vision of manhood and consequently i dont know what that is. so that boulder in my path is creating many problems in my life on my male/ female relationship so i deeply thank you for making your videos and teaching me and many other young boys what it means to be a man!

    Thanks for spreading awareness. I’ve slowly been coming to all these realizations by myself (just turned 20) and my buddy showed me this. He’s been on it but didn’t want to show me until I was ready. It all started because I realized to gain control of my life and sould back I had to stop masturbating to porn. I had already begun to drift from rap music (been listening my whole life) with the idea that just hearing the shit they say isn’t good. This is just more empirical proof. As much as I like it, it has to go.

    You broke it down excellently.  I’m old school and do like the genre, but the music way more than the words, so I hardly listen.  But, I’ve noticed since the 90s how hard of a time women had breaking into and being successful in rap and even hiphop.  They either had/have to act masculine or be very oversexualized.  Either way was eventually going to be a turnoff to men.  And look how our men have almost completely turned their backs on us in their music videos.  Not only that, but because it’s soooo male-dominated and misogynist, homosexuality has crept in big time.  You could see it coming, and I’m sure our enemies helped it along, but why are we so gullible?!!

  • NetjHeru Ekis

    I agree on some points but to generalize hip hop is to generalize all music with vocals. It’s cool to be the bad guy in all cultures whether pimping or whatever. Lupe Fiasco, Common, Mos Def, and Lauryn Hill are great examples that hip hop can be used in a positive way. I respect you’re effort, at least your doing something about what you believe in.

  • Black Rose

    I also never have been and never will be a hiphop or rap fan, because of the violence & sexism in a lot of it. There are a few rap artists I do listen to: Queen Latifah, Salt n Pepa and Tupacs more positive songs. I just re-raid “The rough guide to hiphop” and that only shows how negative & dysfunctional most of that music is.

  • julinaonYT

    I know youre talking about hip hop culture.. but this (low self esteem) is probably true in cultures that have blame shame and honour killings, maybe they dont have derogative rap songs but maybe their cultural commentary is equally derogative. (Dysfunctional lifestyles)
