    Jay Smooth has announced that he will be premiering, not one, but two new entries of his acclaimed video blog, Ill Doctrine, per week via Animal . With his inaugural vlog post via his new e-home, Jay addresses one of hip-hop's great pastimes: its fixation on conspiracy theories. Specifically, the recently circulated email that allegedly details an early '90s secret meeting between record executives and controllers of the private prison system that resulted in collusion to spread gangsta rap throughout the music industry, thus creating more criminals and increasing the country's need for more prisons. (Damn. Now, UMC's unexpectedly rugged second album is starting to make all kinds of sense.) Is this conspiracy theory legit? Can the rap world save itself from conspiring itself into oblivion? Peep the vid and find out, after the jump...

      Jay nailed it. These conspiracies cloud the clear and present danger of slashed and burned social and educational services; the private profitability of a "war on drugs"; and the CHOICES Hip Hop artists have in the creation of their "art" or "product" ... "Live on the run, police paying me to give in my gun / Trick my Wisdom, with the system that imprisoned my son"
