A Interesting Read: The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation
After more than 20 years, I've finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I've simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren't ready for.

Between the late 80's and early 90's, I was what you may call a "decision maker" with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80's and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren't accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music's new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practices I've ever seen.

The meeting was held at a private residence on the outskirts of Los Angeles. I remember about 25 to 30 people being there, most of them familiar faces. Speaking to those I knew, we joked about the theme of the meeting as many of us did not care for rap music and failed to see the purpose of being invited to a private gathering to discuss its future. Among the attendees was a small group of unfamiliar faces who stayed to themselves and made no attempt to socialize beyond their circle. Based on their behavior and formal appearances, they didn't seem to be in our industry.

hmmm

At face value this sounds like a story that starts "My Uncle told me"

But Rappers were defiantly killed and "replaced" with Gangsta Rap...

I'll go with 'plausible' - but I doubt that for profit prisons are/ were the top of the pyramid.
THREE LAWS OF TYRANNY
(Could be read as "Three Laws of Bullying" ? )

Tyranny Law #1:
"Any power that can be abused will be abused."

Tyranny Law #2:
"Abuse always expands to fill the limits of resistance to it."

Tyranny Law #3:
"If people don't resist the abuses of others, they will have no one to resist the abuses of themselves, and tyranny will prevail."

No doubt prisons are not the 'top' of the pyramid.
But it makes sense that they were viewed as great money making endeavors back in the early 1990's... at that time, if I recall correctly, we were being told by our Dear Leader Georgie #1 and, a couple years later Newt that private prisons were terrific as they saved the taxpayers lots and lots of money and were a beacon of God's light in this liberal world as they saved soooooo much money for the taxpayer. (ha ha ha)

This thread, however, is best understood by viewing the youtube link under the OP's article after first reading the article in question.

It makes a kind of perverted sense. If you turn the entire country into an armed prison camp, you can compete with Chinese slave labor. Then 1984 is fulfilled. All of the factions have the same feudalistic big brother government.
