Arguing, Family, and Friends: Rap Pioneer Who Popularized Term 'Hip Hop,' Lovebug Starski Dies At 57 @balleralert Rap Pioneer Lovebug Starski, Who Popularized The Term ‘Hip Hop,’ Dies At 57 - blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kevin Smith, a DJ from the Bronx, and better known as LovebugStarski who coined the term “hip-hop,” unfortunately passed yesterday at age 57. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ RollingStone reports his death was caused by a heart attack he had in Las Vegas, where he recently relocated. Starski’s daughter, Tiffany Smith, confirmed the cause of death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Starski was among a core group of DJ pioneers that include DJKoolHerc, AfrikaBambaataa, GrandmasterFlash and GrandWizardTheodore. Rolling Stone says they all helped shape hip-hop’s parameters in the days before recorded rap in the 1970s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DJ Grandmaster Flash told rolling stone what made Starski so different from the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What set him apart was he was able to DJ and talk on the mic and do both at the same time, and he was really really good at this," explained Flash. “He played an extremely important role in the development of this. We all do it now, talk on the mic and DJ same time, but in the hip-hop world, Starski was probably the first to handle it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may argue that Keith “Cowboy” Wiggins of Grandmaster Flash and the FuriousFive introduced the word “hip-hop,” but Smith accepted credit for the term in an interview with Amoeba Music in 2017. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "That was one of my rhymes when I would get stuck for words and I used to go 'hip, hop, the hip, the hip, hip the hopping," he said. "You know it was just a nursery rhyme that coincided with the music, and that's the God's honest truth." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Condolences are sent to Smith’s family and friends. Salute to all “hip-hop” icons everywhere.

Arguing, Life, and Logic: pokpok of color @catharticwords If you think a woman can only have an abortion if she was raped,youre saying a woman has to be violated before she has rights to her body L1 desisupremacy Repost from @desisupremacy: "(TW: rape mention, abortion) Here are my two cents on this reasoning that I've been thinking lately. So most anti-choicers have at least accepted that it is acceptable for a rape victim to have an abortion. Regardless of who gets an abortion, you are still preventing the formation of a potential child. So the common anti-choice argument of "killing an innocent baby" fails with this logic. In other words, if an anti-choicer can accept a rape victim getting an abortion, they clearly are not as concerned about the fetus' life as they claim. They are against people with a uterus who CHOSE to have sex. They believe that because a woman (or a person considered as a woman in a cisnormative society) is paying a punishment for consenting to sex when she-he-they get pregnant, and that said pregnant person should be forced to undergo this consequence of consenting to sex. With that said, I call bullshit on most (key word) anti-choicers "concern for the child" and really just link their opinion on abortion to their hatred of female sexuality. They can't argue against the vulnerability of a rape survivor so they accept the survivor getting an abortion, but a person who got pregnant from consensual sex is "selfish and immoral" and should therefore be punished by controlling their bodily autonomy. ~S"
