Carlos Mencia made a sweet diss of Kanye on his show after that Kanye lost all his cred! :)
I do like some rap/hip-hop. I tend to not like popular artists; underground rap tends to be cooler and more "real". I like my flows with a cool beat. Hyphy is great it is more fun to listen to than alot of rap and E-40 is solid.
Cunninglynguist has a really skilled song there; I listened to a lot of the links- that`s one artist that was really cool, sweet flow great beat!
And chode095, we were a small time group. We were going to perform in Biscayne Bay as a part of a festival but we were the headliners. And by offer me a spot I meant he will take me to his studio (he owns one) and we will lay down tracks and then he will take it to the record company. The company is local so it probably wont be on google. And his name use to be Da Don so it might be there as that.
and "He offered me a spot but I said no. Right now I just do freestyles on corners."
you cant get signed then offer a friend a record deal like that. if you could do that, some guy that just got signed could sign his 1 yr old nephew too. the record deal would have to hear some sort of demo of yours, which you SHOULD have somewhere downloadable or viewable/listenable on the internet, which you obviously dont, and where the hell are you rapping on corners HAHAH
and if you guys were anywhere near good enough to get signed, then googling Proj3ct boiz and/or d1nero SHOULD result in SOMETHING. but alas, nothinig. guess u guys sucked
"Looking forward to seeing you on the news, oh yeah you`re not good enough to be on the news, not even the paper man. "
Okay, I`m really confused here.When you say looking forward to seeing you on the news do you mean as a criminal or has an expert. Then when you say not even the paper man do you mean Not even the paper, man OR not even the paperman? And what do they have to do with the previous statement?
"But we shedded our "stupid" "Shedded isn`t a word. Irony is a bitch.
Red5TheFinn, how many times did you contradict yourself?"Soulja Boy sucks, His dancing sucks. White people cant dance"I never did bring out race but if your white, then using your logic you cant say Soulja Boy`s dancing sucks since you yourself wouldn`t know about dance. Thats like Paris Hilton calling someone anorexic.
"but black people cant bob their heads."Congratulations, you have mastered the moves of 1980s movies. Give yourself a pat on the back.
"Besides, the world needs idiots""That is the one thing we have learned to to better than the rest"
And I still consider myself an expert since I was actually in the game. After a few months I left my group "Proj3ct Boiz" because there rhymes were different. One of the people in the group got
However, they are no more interesting or useful.
Couldn`t have said it any better (well I probably can). End of discussion.
Most of the artist there are good but hip-hop has evolved from simple corner rapping. Snap will change but that doesnt mean it isn`t a crucial part of rap. And yes T-Pain does suck.
And what Andre said is true, but with that said, the first thing I think about are umbrellas. They couldn`t put Big Boi or someone else could they?
a lot got cut off..
got cut off.
i included LOT Of mainstream tracks, just for you
Now, to anyone who wishes to educate themselves, although im not expecting any of you to be honest, copy and paste the url.Here is a list of rappers that covers the broadest of sub-genres, included are the artist, my personal favorite song by the artist, and a link to youtube.AZ – I feel for you - http://youtube.com/watch?v=l_sqK7ompR0Big Daddy Kane - Symphony Vol. 1 (not on youtube)Binary Star – Honest Expression - http://youtube.com/watch?v=8nVzSr3yDcABlack Sheep – The Choice is Yours - <
Decades ago, rap was a largely unnoticed genre, flourishing mostly underground, and without much commercial success. The commercial success common people are receiving today for simply saying slang words is disgusting and is ultimately the genre’s downfall.
instead of typing everything this man says, ill just link it. He makes the most sense of any explanation I’ve ever heard about the subject.
The only way to know what hip hop is is to live it, to have been there when it first starting coming out with simple beats, and corner rapping just for fun.
The reason so many people are against rap is because all they’ve been exposed to is the commercialized garbage that’s being glorified right now. Right now “snap and dance” music is hot, but it will die down eventually. Times are changing. T-Pain i
& btw, what did you mean one be lo had bad producers, because of the beat? theres nothing wrong with the beat. so in your opinion, a song is well produced if it has a flashy beat right? thats what i thought. sometimes a simple beat is used to emphasize the topic being discussed.
thats the whole point of `triumph`, there was hardly a beat. that was the point. 6 minutes of lyrical genius
Lupe fiasco - the coolest
from his previous album, hes been talking about his fictitious character somewhat based on himself, called Michael, (my cool, michael, get it?)
listen to the lyrics, who is he referring to as `her`? the streets. the streets can make him a king, they can give him all the money he can imagine. together they could do anything. the streets will never leave him,
all in all its about the hustler`s mentality when hes out in the streets
to full understand the complete message, youd have to listen to the cool from his previous album, and the die, and analyze them too.
lemme guess, you think mixtapes are underground.
wayne has lyrics, but really, yeah i agree wayne PROBABLY put out lollipop to get some more attention, as if he needed anymore, but come on, theres no excuse for the lyrics
"Told her to back it up like erp erpAnd make that *** jump like shczerp shczerp"
if he was really true to himself, he`d make lollipop commercialized enough that it brought in more consumers but still kept his previous fans happy with lyrics that actually MADE SENSE.
wayne has the lyrics, but just chooses not to use them.
it must be that sizzurp finally getting to him.
"I cover my track like butter so where the bread be. I see beef as dead meat."
so he gets money, yeah ok, oh so he doesnt get into any beefs?
really thats as shallow as it gets, i doubt you`ve ever listened to a song where you have to pause and rewind and actually analyze the underlying message.
and yeah mnj, now that i think about it, i was actually a semi-wayne fan last year. he does have some clever metaphors, and his delivery really is unique. Rich boy only has hits because hes what the majority of the rap population enjoy, LIKE U.
Fat Joe is starting to comeback and he is east coast. Chingy.... yeah. He is technically Midwest but yeah thats south. Nelly did fall off. I blame the song Tip Drill and no one wanting to play him anymore. But Country Grammar was hot when it dropped. Rich Boy has hits. Throw Some D`s, Boy Looka Here, Get to Poppin. Plus he had that BET Freestyle that was sick. Field Mob.... yeah he sucks.
And T.I. is still going to have an album this year, Paper Trail
The army dosent allow gays either but that dosent stop them. You cant know if someone is gay or not unless they act or say theyre gay. The rap culture dosent allow that because theyre ignorant and wrapped up in the image where you have to have money cars and hoes. However that dosent mean they arent gay, it just means that they act not-gay.
rich boy is garbage, but his last song on his only album made me have a shred of respect for him
wang not giving rap a bad name? what wayne have you been listening to?
watch that and google the lyrics and read along because i honestly dont think you could even keep up with it
what southern artists are giving rap a bad name? well all of them
And I really aint into Wu-tang. They`re just not my thing.
"Food for though so get a buffet plateThe lyrics are so fat you might gain weight",
Inspectah Deck`s entire first verse from `Triumph`, ooh but wait, do you even know who that is? i didnt think so clown
And Wayne gets a pass for lollipop. He just made that song to sell Tha Carter 3
Kanye? O.J. and Isotoners is not substance.
Its all about wordplay, and thats what the South has. "I cover my track like butter so where the bread be. I see beef as dead meat." Thats sick.
GOOD LORD any FIVE YEAR OLD can write those lyrics. no intellectual capacity to speak of. id like to think rappers are good with words and are witty in that sense, but souljah boy and other rappers with his style exhibit NO EVIDENCE OF WIT OR WISDOM whatsoever, and its pretty pathetic.
TI alright, but what he gonna do now? he in hella jailWANG? HAHAHAHJeezy, sometimes a lil bitNo.HAHA, HAVE U HEARD THEIR LAST SONG? what was it..LOLLI LOLLI ,, HAHAH. they hella sold out,. never liked em anyway
west coast fell off? ice cube is making a new album. LOL
ME DO MY RESEARCH???
Gueards dont take theirt belts away. They are simply not allowed to wear them. That and oversized garb contributed to sagging pants, but it really kicked off homosexuality as well, naturally. So either the person wearing them is advertising the fact that people in jail are cool (that we pay tax dollars for their stupid asses) or they are gay.,..ur choice.
These are to name a few. West coast fell off the map completely but I forgot this name of an artist that is West that I hear is good
Kanye is a joke. Ask anyone in the game. Common and Lupe do get respect from people; Common needs to loose Kanye and Lupe needs to make a few more songs until "Kick Push" becomes forgotten.
and cassidy is nothing to talk about, boy can freestyle but his records are nothing special
i really want you, mr. expert, to list me some rappers YOU think are `hip`hop.
trick daddy has no hits, and jeezy came out in like 2000, did you forget about snoop? he been rockin it since `90 and he just dropped an album weeks ago.
i dont blame you though, all youve known all your life is hippop.
And all dances are based on previously choreographed movement. Most people who dont like Soulja Boy aren`t capable of doing those movements themselves
And if you take away their belts, naturally their pants will sag.
maybe they sag their pants because they ass hurts from that shower last week
east coast is notorious? lol? whered you get that from? OH BIGGIE, HA. hes dead, who do they have left thats `notorious` HA.
south is hood? ok, no, who you been listening to, lil wang? HA
you another kid who THINKS he knows the inner workings of hip hop, but really only knows or thought about or read on some website about some stuff kanyes been doing, and dont know SQUAT. quit acting like you an `EXPERT` man
And hip-hop isn`t black, its worldwide. Jeans around ankles comes from the guards taken away their belts and shoelaces. How is that gay? You better do research before you comment.
And Estilo, homophobia is essential for all rap artist. Its taboo in hip-hop to be gay. They will get absolutely no radio play if they are found to be gay. Well... Kanye will still get radio play because its a different market.
IT seems to me black culture is probably the gayest of all cultures. They were the first to wear pink and think its cool (its not, ever) ...they wear their jeans around their ankles, which originates from prison. It was basically easy access for anyone who wanted to pound them...Im not racist, just an observation.
Really now. Self proclaimed expert
What is the big deal?
Usher is quite possible. And im pretty sure R.Kelly will not be there.
Hip-hop is a culture that has made rappers famous with lyrics like "No homo but we c*ckin them"- Juelz Santana or "No homo but we harder than erections" lil wayne.
I really hope Kanye appears and maybe then people will stop listening to him. He is a producer, not a rapper. How many samples must he take?
Eminem, I don`t really see it but I can`t say I wont be surprised.Chi-town rap is where I would say you have to look at it. West coast is gangsta, east coast is notorious, the south is hood, chi-town is very poetic. Actually im surprised Kanye and Common even qualify as rap.And I do expect many R&B artist to appear like Omarion and Chris Brown (I dont care who they have dated).
Soulja Boy I can ALMOST guarantee will not be there. Except for a close friendship with Arab there is nothing that will point to him. And people who dont like Crank dat normally have no dancing a
like an actor said, "who hasn`t had homosexual sex who is big named? some people just require you to sleep with them to get any where. Does it make me gay, you decide, but I see myself as straight who had to make some odd business decisions."
with that, I`m sure that some of the "thuggiest" rappers have slept with other men, be it a "prison rape" or casual experimentation while high. we are getting in society where everyone feels they have to try being gay/lesbian.
