Hip-Hop Culture Strikes Again II
It seems that those hip-hop heads at the Getty Museum tried to get totally gangster with Italian artifacts. Rome, with its own hip-hop history of bling (Milan style) and bang (Sicilian style) was having none of it. The Getty Museum will be returning some pieces, but reserving the right to 6 pieces still disputed. (Now that’s gangster.)Kudos to Getty for trafficking in stolen goods and having the balls to dictate to rightful owners when those stolen items would be returned. Only a true gangster could tell to shut up and wait for three years while they maximize returns on ill-gotten goods.
