    I can't say that I agree with either Scott or Howard on this one. In the
late 70's and early 80's the Sugarhill label was putting out some pretty
stuff like "Rapper's Delight" and "8th Wonder" by the Sugarhill Gang. Then
was Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" and a whole slew of other Melodic Rap
I'm not into the Gangsta Rap stuff where they're rappin' about stickin'
up so and so's ass and killin' whitey, and blah blah blah. Some of it is
kinda humorous because it was all for shock value. Public Enemy were talking
wipin' whitey off the planet, yet their boss/the man who signed them was
Rick Ruben.
How serious could they be? As far as Lauryn Hill goes, I think she's a
wonderful R&B 
vocalist, lots of Stevie Wonder comin' outta her voice. She has well thought
and clever arrangements. She does it all, the writing, arranging, and
I think she's pretty great and a brilliant young lady. Y'all may not agree,
but that's
what makes us all so different. If we all thought alike, how could we all
fall in?
