"OBAMA NATION (8)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, June 9 2009 - A few days ago, the Babylon Observer posted a review of the video "The Obama Deception" on the website, weblogs and the forum. In it, we found two interviews with well-known Hip-Hop artists KRS-ONE and Professor Griff.
I don't know anything about Hip-Hop, to be frank. At least, not worth anything most people already know. I know that Reggae Music stood at the birth of Hip-Hop in several ways, though.
Of course there are a lot of Hip-Hop artists who've joined the ranks into praising Barack Obama into high heaven just for who he is and not for what he stands for, especially not the group of men behind him.
But is definitely was noteworthy, striking, that there seemed to be not one Reggae artist of any significance critical of Obama. It's even more striking, that this extends to the Internet where the Dubroom is really one of the few sites containing critique.
One Love, Give Thanks,

ITEMS FOR THIS EDITION:
WWW, June 2009 - Another impressive DUB compilation by the French Original DUB Gathering Net Label. Ah, well, let's be more precise: the fourth episode of the Step 4 I series doesn't carry the subtitle "Serious Dub Makers" for nothing.
WWW, June 2009 - Throughout the 1980's, Mad Professor set the High Standards for DUB with his DUB ME CRAZY series which started in 1982.
In times when the Jamaican studio's lost their interest and turned to Dancehall, Ariwa Sound kept on releasing one massive document of DUB after the other. This is the 7th chapter, catching up with the Mad Professor in 1987.
