Often words begin with a singular meaning in a certain context, and evolve into various meanings. Examples of words that have evolved and added to the book of slang, in the hip hop context are: dope, ill, fresh, word, sick, etc. In our opinion, there is a difference between the evolution of dope, ill, fresh, word, sick, etc, and the term leak. The difference is these words evolved from a singular meaning in a certain context, to a new meaning in a different context.

If you've been around the Christian Hip Hop scene for any period of time, you've heard people say "secular beats are sin." Even in my most zealous, legalistic days I've never really got on board with that idea. I mean c'mon son, sin?!?! Like, you can go to hell over this if you don't repent of it - sin? Like, Jesus went on the cross and died so that the "Power" instrumental doesn't separate us from our Heavenly Father - sin?!?! Like, if you're a Catholic emcee (shout out to ManChild!) you need to go to confessional, do Hail Mary's and rosary beads - sin?!?!

I heard a song on the radio the other night and it bothered me to my core. Maybe you've seen it performed on Late Night with Jimmy Falon. Its the new song "B.M.F." (Blowing Money Fast) from Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay (huh?). The song is from his new #1 selling album (180,000 sold in the first week) 'Teflon Don'. As soon as I heard the chorus I became enraged. It starts like this:
"I feel like Big Meech, Larry Hoover..."
Right there, in my car, in my own way - I lost it. Why? Because I saw what was happening. What was happening was a destructive idea moving from idealistic imagery, to becoming a living, flesh and blood folk hero. There are a few ways to promote & glorify a lifestyle and one of those ways is the celebration of its heroes. But on the surface, one would think all this song is promoting is a lifestyle of glamorous spending and luxurious living. After all, the song is called "Burning Money Fast" right? WRONG!
