    my money is on a new rapper. called big-e-dimund
    and he likes... big diamonds. but this one, he`ll get cut like a cheeseburger. he`ll be the first rapper out of sait kitts and nevis and will bring the country new money and order. the king will relinquish his position and big-e will rename them the `phalistinian empire` the capitol of course being italian `largo croce`

    i make primetimekin go boom. and yes blood diamonds are shenanigans its all part of an large joke that no one seems to get. its hate africa day. and i don`t care if you don`t think i`m funny. all i`m saying is they make soo much money for so little work. thats all. it can take months to perfect a page of sheet music (first hand i play) and i know plenty of wannabe rappers that can throw something together ina couple of minutes.

    For those of you arguing who is richer: Try this.
    It`s a listing of all countries by GDP per capita. In other words, how much money the average person makes in a year. Notice the bottom 14 are all in Africa, and combined don`t make up half the average American.

    Stop the stupid.

    PrimeTimeKin(g), twenty rappers make 10 million a year, and all the rest make nothing.

    Can`t believe you`d buy into all that crap. :D

    Rappers are poor. No rappers could afford that diamond.

    "PrimeTimeKin(g), twenty rappers make 10 million a year, and all the rest make nothing."

    I live in Miami... I know Trick Daddy

    He isn`t on the list because that list is only for Taxable/ legal money.

    Trick Daddy gets plenty of money


    And a lot of the top selling albums are rap.

    Last year
    #2 was KONVICTED by Akon
    Fergie has some hip-hop and she was 3
    Kanye was 12
    Kingdom Come was 20

    And that was a rap year that was considered weak. T.I. could`ve had a better album. His current one is good,

    Not to Mention Lil` Wayne`s THA CARTER 3 had so many leaks it was pushed back until a few months ago

    quite frankly, almost all rap sucks, isnt real music with any emotion or even meaning, and im absolutely ashamed that my generation is buying into it so much >_<

    a few rappers manage to put meaning into that crap, and even then, its AT BEST pathetic.

    Rap is basically some rhyming words put together (usually making little sense and distorting grammar/ spelling in order to make them fit) with a repetitive beat on the background. Really, that`s pathetic. Neolithical cavemen were already past that crap.
    As many people I know, I`m shocked the youth buys it so much. The bands that get the big bucks nowadays make the most stupid pseudo-music ever (rap, reggaeton, emofag rock). The truly talented artists/ bands don`t get a bit of attention. It`s kinda sad.

    Back on topic:
    "Maybe they`ll auction it off to help starving African children...?"

    Hahaha, don`t be naïve. That`s not gonna happen. Fear the power of greed.

    "man TheSharpest is soooo indie and cool

    Yes. Yes they should.

    Nah, but in all seriousness, they`re hundreds of types of music out there. I`m just bashing the most stupid and commercial oriented genres. Also, I`m not imposing anyone anything. I mean, who the f*ck am I to tell you what to hear? I`m just saying the most stupid music is the most commercial music nowadays, when it shouldn`t. It`s a shame that the music industry is based purely on "how good will it sell" and not "how talented the musician is". That`s why it`s all going downhill.

    Women are so hypocritical to this. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT ALL WOMEN!!!

    Even Fat Joe said
    If you earn you`re pay check I got nothing but respect

    we are talking about bitches, and all of you women know at least a few bitches. If you don`t know any bitches, thats because you`re probably it.

    If rap is simple, you don`t get the basics
