Listener comments!

  Thu. 1/20/11 12:05am Noah:

Tonight we will celebrate the days of conscious rap music, positive messages and solid beats! Tune into the late 1980's and early '90's.
  Thu. 1/20/11 12:06am Noah:

Keep in mind that I do NOT subscribe to the genre label of "conscious hip hop", but sadly that's what rap music with any sort of thought is called.....
  Thu. 1/20/11 12:06am Heavy B:

  Thu. 1/20/11 1:05am Marmalade Kitty:

It's not all black and white with HipHop-Rap, the "positive" & "negative" question; soul, polemics, education, rage, humor etc, and politics are integral in the substance of the genre..
Unconscious HipHop-Rap has no soul.. And thus, sucks!!
But the music remains most important!
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:06am Noah:

Speak it Marms!!! Thank you!
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:06am BPF:

  Thu. 1/20/11 1:07am a ignant youngsta:

So, here's a question:

where does the phrase "dip dip dive" originally come from? because I hear that isht all over the place, in songs going back at least 20 years.
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:09am Brian:

I remember this song on Campus Radio in Marquette Michigan. Go, Cat, Go...
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:10am MONK:

Weel "dice" goes back to the Dizzy Gillespie days. The Dip Dip was added in the seventies and spread by who of course...DEEJAYS.
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:11am MONK:

meant to say, Well, DIVE was ...
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:12am Chicago Joel:

Youngsta... I only know it from a song too. "dip, dip, dive, so, so cialize" from Grandmaster Flash I think.
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:14am Chicago Joel:

i imagine they were referring to dancing
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:18am Brian:

I'm an idiot, To leave rap once it wasn't "relevant", like Like these tunes, I totally... or did I?... Wait....What?
  Thu. 1/20/11 1:23am Marmalade Kitty:

..Sorry, my prevous impassioned comment:)
