"Young & Trendy,"

When other young rappers are rapping about partying, girls and boys, or pretending to be big ballers in training, these three young men are rapping a message of self-love and respect. With rap lyrics about non-violence, Martin Luther King, being free from slavry mentally and physically, L&B Positive Rappers are most definitely Young and Trendy.
They were First place winners of the youth category 2003 First Annual Village of Opportunity Talent Showcase where I was one of the judges. I had the pleasure to see and hear first hand what these fellows had to say. Not only were they cute as buttons, they also had some words for the young and the old about being Black and proud of it.
"Yo Listen Up!" an original Black History rap, tells of Black history from the beginning to the present. The tight beats combined with meaningful lyrics was very refreshing and I found myself tapping my feet and clapping my hands.
The group also won first prize at the Dodge Recreation Center Spring Talent show, and have been featured at various other community festivals and other events. I would be willing to bet that you have not heard the last of the L&B Positive Rappers. If you ever have the opportunity to catch these guys in action, you owe it to yourself to do so.
