The number one question in the music industry today is, "Is hip-hop dead? " Some say yes, others say no. But one thing can be agreed upon. Hip-hop is lacking the guidance and direction that it once possessed. Guidance and direction that could only come from one type of person…..a boss. And not your typical "gain success in the music industry first, and then become a boss" type of boss. Hip-hop needs to be guided by a boss that was a boss before the music. Before the lights and cameras. Back when there was nothing but action. Hip-hop needs guidance from Geolani... the boss of the bosses. Yonkers, NY has done it again.
