Understanding Mississippi - The US Explained


How did a little state that rests alongside the banks of a mighty river make so many contributions to American letters and literature? "There's so much that you can learn about the world, and I would say about this country, from studying what Mississippi writers have done and written about this place, which I think telescopes onto our larger national issues, and even some of our larger international ones."

Mississippi Flag Removed From New Jersey Park

Why is the Mississippi state flag such a big problem? Why is everything in America so racist? Gov. Phil Murphy has ordered the Mississippi state flag removed from a display that includes each of the 50 state flags and overlooks the Statue of Liberty.

On Saturday, Mississippi’s governor, Phil Bryant, said he’s disappointed in the decision and that his state’s voters should decide what is represented on their flag and what is not. Mississippians, who voted in a 2001 statewide election, chose to keep the flag.

Several Mississippi cities and counties and all eight of the state’s public universities have stopped flying it in recent years amid criticism that the battle emblem is a racist reminder of slavery and segregation. Supporters of the flag say it represents history.

Sip Hop Named New Arthor

Sip Hop was born in Cleveland, Mississippi Feb. 17 1984, always had two things that he always love was basketball and love for Hip Hop. He fell in love with Hip Hop as a child for rappers like Rahkim, Kool Moe Dee and KRS-One but it was emcees like Nas inspired him to be a rapper.

At the age of 13 Sip started to really go for the rap flow as this was the time when rappers like Bone Thugs and Twista was running the rap show, so at eight grade Sip start joining the cypher rapping even though it was just for fun at that time. By tenth grade Sip started to put the basketball down and go for the rapping thing even though from the delta in Mississippi was really hard to get heard. So then I had to move elsewhere just to connect with the right musicians.

after completing High School That's when i met Shockhouse Productions in Chicago, IL from a rapper name Sleepy Boy. He was forming this group called Face Off with 2 more fellas in the group, sleepy asked if i can join with the group even though i was with the group going to a month. After the situation with leaving the group he decided to go solo in the booth at The Shockhouse. Feeling like a real rapper in this booth Sip reply.

After that moment, thats when i started to link up with this Promoter and rapper Gansta Marcus. Every since then, independent minded thats known in hits like Swag On 100 with Reese Feat me on the track and also with the mixtape  titled Cool Fresh and Versatile with Songs like Mississippi Time To Shine, Still Hustling and Hold Up Feat..Gansta Marcus. The rest is history..
