In a style that only he can deliver, Dr. Boyce Watkins explains the seven tenants of black male self-destruction that are being promoted through commercialized hip-hop.  Dr. Watkins’ lecture presents an amazing display of simple, yet thoughtful analysis that leans on his 20 years of teaching at American business schools to explain why unregulated capitalism and public irresponsibility has not only ruined hip-hop, but has created a deadly set of toxins for young men and women who are raised to be fed like cattle into the prison industrial complex.  The truth is that they want your son to die, and his death is far more convenient if he contributes to his own destruction.  In the words of Dr. Watkins, “When you kill and control the mind, you don’t have to control the body.  At that point, the person will simply choose to throw himself off a cliff.”

Dr. Watkins loves hip-hop and he loves black people.  He also appreciates and studies the musical talents of many of the artists he critiques. That is why he feels that it’s urgent to start telling the truth about what’s happening to  young black kids and start demanding that artists and corporations take responsibility for the lifestyles being promoted through destructive music on the radio.  The time for making excuses is over, because our children are important too and it is up to us to protect them.
