I feel like the 1980s wasn't as monumental in shaping our culture in the way it is today than those two decades. Sure, hip hop evolved into the form we know it today at the end of the 1980s and the crack era brought to light the issues of gang violence but other than it didn't had a big impact in my opinion. Other than the more negative aspects.
As a black"generation Xer" from the crack era a lot of us were lucky to turn out just ok. We was fukked from the beginning. Lot of us were literally told we'd be dead or in jail by 18-20. Took a while for us to really grow up a gain any sort of foothold in this world. Late 70s and early 80s babies were a transitional generation living in a world from the past and changing into the future and we were called slackers by the time we were teens. We are a IDGAF generationthe 70s
What sticks out about the 90s was black people having the ball in general doing fukking nothing with it
also fukk generation x as a staff, record label and crew
yeah the 80s was a damn nightmare
2020 is giving me 80s vibes....
Most cats on this board weren't around for the 80's and their animosity towards that decade can be summed-up in two words:
I survived that shyt as a teenager and if not for the Epidemic, the 80's was the GOAT Era.
True. Dunno why the media liked to protray the 70s as a totally peaceful decade.But there was national heroin epidemic going around during the 70’s, not to mention the fall of the Black Panther and the creation of the Crips and Bloods happened during that decade as well. The 70’s weren’t as peaceful and prosperous for us as most people think on here.
crack era, reagan, fashion, plus what I was told by older folks. shyt seemed horrid. I feel bad for you nikkas that went through that.
