Despite all those wonderful things, many who covered the event decided to spend all their ink and air time on sveral minutes of remarks made by Suge Knight. Although many of his points made sense, others were taken back by the way he stated his remarks and by some of the swipes he took at other artists. Suge became the focal point of the Summit and not the other compelling remarks. I had suggested that if people felt like things were out of pocket to spark dialogue. I suggested that they reach out and drop a line to the brother. After all, over the years we have shown tremendous patience and have had a lot of patience shown to us for our collective activities, remarks and antics. I've been to more than a few meetings and summits where people have said worse, done worse and disrupted more. We have long understood that change does not always happen over night, but we must take productive steps to help bring it about..
With that in mind a brotha named Chris wrote an open letter which he mailed off to Suge Knight... He asked if we could share it.. Hopefully people take his words to heart and act appropriately if they see themselves in his words. What we are dealing with is bigger than Hip Hop. And its bigger than Suge Knight. Here's Chris' letter..
