    Someone should have given Kool G a book on how to make a good solo album.

    The first two commenters I TOTALLY AGREE BRO LIKE SOUTHERN HIP HOP IS AWFUL! AND ALL THE NEW ARTISTS SUCK DUDE ONLY ’86-’95 FOR ME MAN!!!!!! . . . Psh fuckin lames, too narrow-minded learn to accept change. Remember it’s not what is said, rather how it’s said ;). Keep jerking off to album covers of Public Enemy while the rest of us enjoy the present times.

    (To the genius above me.) Do you know what sarcasm is? Did you not see how I was making fun of “mike” and the other person? Reading Comprehension: Who knew it could be so difficult?

    Barry Washington is from the new generation and therefore is NOT a legitimate hip hop fan.

  • Barry Washington

    Right . . ? I forgot there were guidelines to being a “legitimate hip hop fan”. Can you post the link to being one? (This way I could follow it easier) I’ll quote Guru from Gang Starr off Gang Starr’s fourth album [Hard to Earn] song “Mostly Tha Voice” :

    “So when you think you know the whole you don’t even know the half”.

    My beef with you and others are that you guys sound like faggots that go around glorifying a generation of music that hasn’t been out in over a decade. Claiming that new age Rap sucks and how Southern Rap has killed Hip Hop. It’s so negative and so lame. I used to be like you too until I opened my eyes and appreciated what Hip Hop is really about. Sure I like to listen to the Hip Hop that was out 10-20 years ago (and the underground scene of today), but to say that that time was when only when “real hip hop” existed is so lame. Instead of being overly critical on everything learn to appreciate the music that makes you want to move and have a good time. Find a balance. Not be put to sleep by Canibus or Ras Kass trying to prove how sweet their lyricism is.

  • skdfhksjdfh

    Nah, you really arent a legit hip hop fan and the south killed hip hop. The new generation has done nothing to improve what was going on in the 90’s, you dont count.

    We’re not stuck in the 80’s-90’s era Barry, it’s just that we hate what has become of rap with the introduction of Dirty South. If you’re a real fan like you claim to be you’d be able to draw a line between Dirthy South(+some other ”rappers” like gucci mane and soulja boy etc.) and real Rap. In real Rap it’s about lyrics, song have their subjects and stories and enough lyrics in one song for one whole pop album. Theze new dudes have less lyrics in their songs than Britney or Lady Gaga. They have two or three ”hooks” which they repeat through the whole song over some plastic beat and it’s all wrapped up with auto-tune and dozens of other voice-changing effects to the point you can’t recognise their voice anymore. Real Rap, no matter if it’s Gangsta or Gospel Rap, touches the souls of people who can associate with the lyrics and the rapper. It has substance in it. New age dudes have one subject composed of three words(bitch, money and cars) and repeat it throughout the whole album. And I could go on, If you’re smart as you think you are you’d be able to draw a line and realise what everyone’s talking about. There are still real rappers today though, it’s just that radio plays Ho-Rida, and Soulja Gay rather than real rappers as they are less controversial and don’t make you think, just bump your head and follow the crowd.

  • ripper2_4

    Real rappers,(tupac , biggie , nwa, camoflage etc…)all had a message in their lyrics that related to the every day person and their struggle. When you hear people like future t pain lil wayne an all that it aint nothing but auto tune and rappin bout money, cars, and clothes like we have it.
