BLACK GANGSTA has been hailed as the musical equivalent of the “black man in a suit” in Hollywood, the country’s hip-hop and R&B stars and even the music industry itself.
But as the group continues to rise, the genre is also experiencing a rise in its own, darker corners, with more of its stars being arrested for violent crimes, including a man whose mother was beaten to death for refusing to give him a job.
In this exclusive interview with Newsweek, black artists and musicians talk about the struggles of black people in the entertainment industry, the rise of Quaver, how to stay safe in hip-hopping culture and how to survive the music business.
