Steel Sharpens Steel
Sam reminded us of Puffy’s influence on removing criticism - a requisite tool for creativity - from the hands of the Rap community. In a post Hate Me Now world, criticism became hate. If you don’t like my song you are no longer a critic that I must answer to but you are a hater that will be dismissed. Is the tradition of a peer review process now dead?
