I think its important for the world to start looking at the music that is coming from seattle again. Seattle hip-hop artists like Ben Garves, Blue Scholars, Common Market, Macklemore, etc. are out selling many major-label artists nationally. Ben Garves and the Blue Scholars actually have higher rated albums on amazon than artists like Lil Jon and Rihanna. Maybe this deserves our attention.

When I think of Hip Hop in Seattle, I think of fights and shootings in clubs, assults in Belltown, and the growing crime and gang problems.

Harald, you have to listen to the music before you make this stereotypical judgements. It's obvious that you are not versed in Hip Hop culture, due to your pathetic ignorance. I know what you hear on the radio is garbage, but who runs the radio??? A bunch of people who want to keep a negative image of black people alive, this is not good for society. Get to know reality before you spout off with your false pre-judgements.

You are right on, the Hip-hop comoing out of Seattle is spritual, family oriented, and full of social justice and soul. It is the true meaning of Hip-Hop, true to the roots of the movement.

Where did that come from? You miss the point. RAP is the source of what you are talking about and that is the very reason seattle RAP is not respected. Hip-Hop is where the culture and the success stories are popping up. Acts like the ones i listed above (Blue Scholars, Common Market, Macklemore, Jake One...) Are finding themselves to be internationally known for the message they carry in their music. Seattle Hip-Hop is known for its message. Please listen to the music we are talking about before you judge. Please give me one single successful example of the music YOU are talking about. There isnt one. Not an artist that is both 1. from seattle and 2. successful for carrying a negative message. We are talking about hip-hop FROM seattle, not PLAYED in seattle.
