Do African Americans Honor, Respect & Cherish Black Music? Speech from Arrested Development Weighs in

We caught up w/ Speech of the Grammy Award winning group Arrested Development and asked him how the legendary group was doing. He said they do well overseas. The group gets more love out the country than within.. We then talked about the viability of Black music and why so many African Americans seem to abandon various genres like jazz and blues.

Speech addressed this issue and noted that part of the challenge we have is to honor our music and hold a stake in it. He said far too often we move on after something gets ‘played out’ and others pick up on it , then control it, redefine it and make millions off it..
