Art Ranger World Hip Hop Art Competition - The "Bling Society"

Honestly folks, buzz behind the Art Ranger World Hip Hop Art Competition, at least at the regional level, has been pretty cool. It's also been pretty intense when it comes to putting all the parts together. I guess that's because we're in the middle of launching several important aspects of Superstarcase simultaneously. "It' cool bro'", as I'm always reminded that Rome wasn't built in a day (by the way, what's with contractions and Spellcheck?). Yeah right, tell that to those "starvin' artists out there" clinging to the hopes of having a really cool place that'll help them get their artworks recognized and set them on their way to "stardom, fame and fortune". The Art Ranger competition promises to be something of a surprise, especially when it comes to the idea of expert, well established competitions. The focus of attention for this competition is to give many Hip Hop Artists the opportunity to display their works to a Hip hop community world wide. Hip Hop is a world cultural event of great and important significance. It should be afforded the well deserved respect it has earned as a powerful, societal medium of creativity and change. As 2008 comes to a close, it is incumbent on the elder statesmen of Hip Hop to help provide an up and coming generation with opportunities that never existed for them if the genre and society are to survive and flourish. Having such a prolific artist like Ingar Aasen (The Art Ranger 107) take such a deep interest in the "Bling Society" only serves notice to the rest of the art community and society itself that Hip Hop is here to stay, unlike the belief that "it is only a passing fad"(observations once used to explain away the popularity of Rock & Roll, Beethoven, Bach and any other such cultural upheaval). Actually, maybe "fad" wasn't the word they used in Beethoven and Bach's time...
