    although I don’t always agree with B Dot, he’s the only person who mostly keeps it 100, big homie seems to do/say as he’s been told (plus his grammar && spelling is ridic) and YN seems to do as he’s been paid,

    Keep pushing back BDot. We need you out there challenging the “cultural tourists” and fighting for higher standards in this culture. Pow!

  • yaknow

    So who jerked who off here? Did B.Dot lick Al’s balls and ass, or just balls?

    • B.Dot

      Both.

  • jonny business

    Salute to B Dot 4 pushing the culture and not following whats hot but did u forget an iron bro

    • B.Dot

      @jonny Thanks! but i know right it?! was the damn jacket!

  • kareem

    idk…it’s safe to say that bill o’reily, save for a few moments of coherence, is a generally a belligerent, hair-brained ass old man. i don’t think the parallel is right, lol.

    This is a GREAT interview. Very good. It answered a lot of questions about the site and the people behind it. Good job.

    • B.Dot

      Thank you @JustMyOpinion

    Plus….You’re not alone in your HIP-HOP passion. The minute you, generally speaking, talk about bars, there’s some that say “oh, you must be old.” A reiteration of your point, “when does it stop?” Music sales aren’t down because fans are not buying records, it’s down fans realize there’s only two good songs on the album. That’s the reason singles go platinum now. There was a time albums sold 5 million and singles went triple.

    All we, fans, want is great music. That’s all.

    P.s. you didn’t need Paul for the site. There’s a guy name GoDaddy. ;)

    Keep up the good work guys, this is the only rap site I get my news, rap-related, from. #trusted.

    I think it’s just as important (if not more important) to being hyper aware of the WORLD around the culture you subscribe to. You’re somewhat useless as a cultural commentator if all you do is eat sleep and breathe hip-hop music all day everyday – you’re just a HUGE FAN, at that point.

    That’s why I appreciate the writers you call ‘cultural tourists’, because their perspective is more “what does this hip-hop artist mean to the rest of the world?”, and their game isn’t to keep the culture closed off.

    I understand you feel it’s your job to curate, and that’s so important, but please chill on your resentment for institutions like Rap Genius and Pitchfork – what’s the point of having a language if nobody makes an effort to translate and make it relatable to the rest of the world? Unless you don’t want the world to share in your culture and you just want a private party for yourself – in that case, ignore all previous.

    Thanks for the laughs B Dot

    Your opinion matters due to the title you have, not necessarily a title you earned!

    Anyone who dug Cassidy and/or was from Philly knew Meek Mill , including myself and other hip hop head friends I have. So cut that “noticed Meek first” trash

    Everyone loved Frank Ocean’s first album/mixtape /music before he blew up. You hate Odd Future, so now we’re supposed to believe that an artist tied in with Odd Future is someone you helped “save”?
    ha ha
    I never heard ONE PERSON say “I found this Frank Ocean music through Rap Radar”.
    or
    Any artist for that matter!!

    Macklemore, Kendrick, Mac Miller? You sir are a delusional fool suffering from megalomania!!!!

    You can google a ton of blogs/forums that had these artists on their sites before you ever heard of them. What a joke!!!!

    This idea that you “live hip hop” is also a joke.
    What in the hell makes you think that you know what “hip hop” is?
    I’ve been in so many hip hop spots throughout NYC & seen every race, age type of person there. You act as if you being from Queens, which I’m from too, has given you some kind of knowledge that has to be “earned”

    All the artists you named and NONE of them are from Queens. So there’s no one hot from Queens, you fake Russell Simmons!!!

    Get the fuck out of here!!!

    No one has ever “come out their face” to you cause no one has ever seen your face or knew who you were till you starting tweeting off the strength of Elliott Wilson’s name!!

    Who the fuck cared what you had to say then?
    Now you’re the guy with the doo-rag cheesing with Jay Z & trying to sell damaged goods like Rick Ross as an elite product.

    Your time is coming , repercussions are lined up for you as you continue to flaunt the fact you “met” these rappers as if this elevates you to some kind of hierarchy . as if you are the “gate-keeper”

    Hope the camera’s rolling and you tweet out the day someone answers your pompous chest-puffing & grandstanding.

    You write a short byline about the new bow wow song for a living , you chump!
    lol

    B Dot would never argue w/someone who can actually express themselves
    like me!

  • LuxuryRap

    You could have at least ironed your hoodie B.Dot

  • Kemosabi

    @poisonedkoola just served up some ETHER.

  • E$CO

    Meanwhile @poisonedkoola is on RapRadar….I’m pretty sure b.dot doesn’t give a fuck

  • Bk…then them

    Can’t be mad at a young person making their way. A simple way to settle b.dots points is to ask the artist he mentioned to give their take. Coming off angry is always a good way to drown out your points

  • zeee

    nice interview.

  • trizz

    I imagine Lena Dunham wrote every positive ‘Finally Rich’ review ever.

    @ B.Dot

  • it’s the roc

    Great interview. Continue to hold the culture down B.Dot, you can start by making sure Lil B’s Joey Bada$$ diss is the first and last song of his resurgence.
