Hear my presentation at the very first Hip Hop Summit before Hip Hop got sold out and taken over: If you think COINTELPRO is over, think again. It’s on steroids now!! Here’s John Potash on the assassination of Tupac Shakur. I had already found evidence of his surveillance, Potash found more! All to keep Hip Hop artists from becoming political and to degenerate into what we see now. -Cynthia McKinney
