An Autumn Evening

I recently read the legendary Gladys Knight's comments about hip hop and the culture thereof as it pertains to hindering the growth of Black music. In a lot of ways, present day Black music in a general sense is in a very bad state. From Hip hop to the level of R&B and Soul or the lack of in mainstream media, we are seemingly suffering across the board. However, my concerns are focused on the comments about hip hop.
Once AGAIN, the attempt to separate the generations amongst us as Black Americans is having much success.
