Blues, Rock, Rap #OPS Throwdown 4/16/2016

Blues, Rock, Rap #OPS Throwdown 4/16/2016

Earlier this week I had two posts about the dispute between Gene Simmons and Ice Cube of NWA. The guts of the argument concerned whether "Rap" (Hip-Hop) qualifies for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Hopefully, you read my written response, but here is my musical response to Gene Simmons and all of the haters who think there is a "PURE" Rock that can be preserved.

You can read the commentary by checking my Google+ page or by searching using the hashtag #OPSThrowdown on Google+. You can also find my playlists on Spotify or on my YouTube Channel (linked below).  

Enjoy!
