    • Davide Leroy

      • Da Business

        • Davide Leroy

          • Da Business

            HA!!! Alright B, u win. I guess that it’s impossible to be a man, who takes care of his family and be a hip hop head @ the same time. I salute u, sir.

          • Starpoint feat Renee Diggs

            By the time he catch on to what you’re saying, somebody will be telling him the same thing, smh!

          • Da Business

            Right.

      • marty mcfly

        Without them old niggas these young niggas would even be worse off then they are today and you wouldn’t even have no damn blogs to get on cause the sites you on now were started by the “old niggas” when they was your age. Furthermore the lame shit that goes on with these young niggas today is ridiculous. Bunch of Young Thugs and Soulja Boy type mothafuckas… Smh

        • Da Business

          Damn, u stuck the knife in ’em. I didn’t want to do it to him. Let him live tho, he doesn’t know any better. As an old head once said, “A wise man told me don’t argue with fools
          Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who
          So stop with that childish shit, nigga I’m grown
          Please leave it alone”.

    • el jim chapo guzman

      Just cause you fifty five doesn’t mean this shit is just for the old heads. It’s for everybody old head.

      • 1KillMovez1

        You finally made sense for once…

        • el jim chapo guzman

          Lol Ha!!

      • marty mcfly

        Actually the album is NOT for everybody which is why its called ONLY Built 4 Cuban Linx…. Now the younger generation today should listen to the older albums but they not gonna hear it the same way as people who was already Hip Hop heads and outside in the streets in 1995 because the times have changed. Now when these young fools wanna clown on the “old heads”? They might as well go diss they own mothers cause what is she? When a “old head” tries to give these little mothafuckas some game they quick to act as if they got all the answers until they get in these streets and realize they have none.

        • el jim chapo guzman

          Aye Marty this the first time you made a positive comment. Your comments always false because you stuck in between the us vs them. If you get out that state of mind us vs them, you’ll be aight with me Marty.

          • marty mcfly

            Thats a lie but that fact that 99% of your comments are racist can be proven by anyone who checks out your comments. Whites made it us vs black people. Whites by the hundreds of millions have all unified under the attack on black people. Not only are they unified in that mentality but they went as far as establishing it in american culture, politics, economics, social class etc… There are millions of white people who belong to hate groups based on targeting black people and there are thousands of different hate groups that are all white and unified in their hatred towards black people. So I as a black man did not start this us vs them bullshit. Its necessary for black people to feel that way against whites at this point because again, there are a hundred million white people that are all unified in there hatred towards blacks and their willing to terrorize, destroy and kill over it. And in these groups they are not shy about what they stand for. They want to kill and systematically destroy black people period. That is their main objective. There is no black group nor have there ever been any black group in the history of america that has ever posed this level of threat to white people. I don’t wanna be alright with you. Your an enemy of black people and you’ve made that clear with over a hundred comments all attacking black people. I don’t wanna be alright with you, I wanna see you and everyone like you dead.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            ……the real KK K is the dem party and their leader Obama….they have taken their play-book on the instigation of HATE and brought it onto the political stage even further with this “race card issue”………if I was the Kk K I would take them up on the copy-write issue.

          • marty mcfly

            No fool, the real KKK is the actual KKK. Every time people say Obama is a racist they can’t produce one racist comment he’s made in his life. His mother and the grandparents that raised him are white. I highly doubt he’s racist against white people. The racist party is the republicans and they themselves take pride in being racists. Only on camera do they deny it (cowards) but at their events they throw around the word nigger like its a hundred years ago. They would actually make fun of you if you weren’t racist. If Obama slaughters a million plus white people in america and hangs hundreds of thousands of white men, women and children from trees then you can compare him to the KKK.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            From what I saw on the news, it seemed that 99% of people using racist slurs and belittling the other races were the black people. Whey they scream burn the bitch…. down its just emotions talking, but if we post a picture of a black person who can’t spell, all of a sudden that becomes a racist tweet? I wish people would just start calling it like it is. Start posting pictures of every black person who uses the term “us and them” and call them racist. Its really sad to see this country headed downward with so much racial problems. We have always had tension because of the Al Sharpton’s and other so called civil disobedience leaders, but it has never been so bad as it has been lately. Looking forward to a post-Obama recovery.

          • marty mcfly

            Yeah you can talk about what you saw on the news in regards to one issue but when I bring up historical facts based on centuries of white racism and the involvement of unified racism on the part of hundreds of millions of white people that have killed hundreds of millions of black people… You just gonna ignore that whole issue. Start posting how many white people use the us vs them term… You’ll have over a half a billion posts and that would only be one year of racists comments from white people. Of course its us vs them because whites have left black people no other option because again, MILLIONS OF WHITE PEOPLE have made it 100% clear that its us verse them. AL Sharpton is still talking about peaceful protest and getting along with white people? I don’t wanna get along with any white people that wish death on black people. I want then same for them that they wish for us.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            If you walked in a psychiatrist’s office and just spouted the liberal platform you’d get a prescription pad full of goodies in no time.

            “Hey doc, all my problems are because of everyone else — my mommy & daddy are terrible, my country is evil and I’m a racist even though I don’t want to be! I voted for a black man I’d never heard of in my life to magically cure all my problems and since that didn’t work I think I’ll burn down Ferguson, MO.”

            There’s no cure for these people, no wonder they all want so many drugs.

          • marty mcfly

            And this mentality here is why I wanna see you and everyone like you DEAD. Again, even with facts connected the the history of racism in america, you’ll still deny it exists. Obama gave a hundred hour long speeches all over the country before he became president and people listened and thats why the voted for him. Whites have had 40 white presidents and established an entire country and system on the backs of slaves in which they killed hundreds of millions of but yet still its black people that are the evil ones here? I don’t think so.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            There’s a profound racism in this country. Remember that story about the unarmed white guy who got gunned down by black cops?

          • marty mcfly

            Remember the majority of americas whole history where racists whites killed half a billion black people during the course of an entire slave trade?

          • el jim chapo guzman

            The far left is racist against whites, no doubt about it.

          • marty mcfly

            Yeah you keep ducking those centuries of history cause there is nothing you can say to erase it or rationalize such brutality, oppression and murder. That is the history of evilness that you support and stand by.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            good bye marty, you poor deluded goose or course you’re racist you’re just unaware of it

          • marty mcfly

            I have yet to ever make a racist comment on this site. EVERYTHING I have said is actually written down in history books that american white people wrote themselves about their own racism. They themselves own the fact their racists.

          • marty mcfly

            The only cure for people like you is death. Now I wish that could come from violence but it really doesn’t matter because the large majority of the people you represent are in the late 50s and older so either way death is on its way. You tried to raise your kids to hate black people and for the most part it failed but even that was centuries of a mentality that is just now slowly dying out. You the ones that needed a cure for your own mentality not us.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Black pro athletes like to buy homes among the wealthy white,,as to ‘liking blondes” LOL ,,YO OJ ..TIGER ETC hahahahahahaha.

          • marty mcfly

            Your could for saying a name here and there but you run for the hills like the cowardly white people you love so much when americas history is brought forward.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            good bye marty i’m done schooling you for today.

          • marty mcfly

            I’ve actually heard white people say they wonder why blacks haven’t killed alot of them based on racism. Seriously. Before you even think of schooling me at least learn the basic history of america. Also even the way you use the word racism isn’t even correct. IF and again IF black people hated whites, that would make perfect sense and carries the most logical explanation. Jews hate Germans and everyone accepts and cosigns it. Their holocaust lasted a little more then half a decade. Black people holocaust lasted 400 plus years and you act as if we don’t have the right to hate white people. Furthermore whites actually established racism as american culture. That alone just destroys your whole argument but your too stupid to know why. Smh

          • marty mcfly

            You talking about racist comments from black people? There are literally tens of thousands of white websites and organizations where they post thousands of racist comments per day. Any so called racism coming from black people is nothing but a raindrop in an ocean of white racism.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Wow, a straw man argument that can’t be countered without sounding like a racist. That, folks, is how you have your cake and eat it too

          • marty mcfly

            There is nothing straw man about that argument. White people themselves say that such racism exists on their side and you still in denial. There is nothing you can do or say vs my comments. I’m out.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            catch you on another post marty.

          • marty mcfly

            You’ll still be saying a bunch of shit about black people being racists in america when history shows clearly the 99.9% of americas racism from top to bottom is the product of white hatred and not black people.

          • marty mcfly

            White people in the realm of politics have brought up Obama’s race over a million times. Obama has yet to bring up his race not even 1 time in his whole presidency in any official statement or speech other then speaking on his parents.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            I really enjoy rapradar the new intellectualism without the intellects.

          • marty mcfly

            But yet there is nothing you can do to discredit any of my comments because there FACTS period. You talking about blacks being racists? I can show you FACTS thats a huge portion of whites are without any doubt.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Black people would do themselves a favor by coming to the realization that their Liberal allies are the ones who benefit the most from keeping them in their place.

          • marty mcfly

            Yes because before the liberals now were even born that party was based in republican history and viewpoint. The KKK and the lynch mobs established both parties. This goes back to when they would put masks on and ride out at night killing black people. Those same people were elected into office because whites admired the murder of black people even when those blacks were born into slavery and chains and never stood any chance of freedom whatsoever. Even back then they said its actually blacks that are racist not us whites. I see that same delusion still exists in your mind today.

  • blackbeltbreeze

    wutang clan had so many lanes blended. it’s like having jay elec, danny brown, and freddie gibbs in one clique, all holding each other down and making music.

    when i look at today’s authentic collectives like the pro era’s, odd futures, A$APs, it makes me realize even more how hard it is to be diverse like wu in terms of lifestyles and rhyme styles AND also productive in terms of putting out work from all these artists. real finished products. not just loosies and ep’s. that work they put in wasn’t easy.

    rza could write a whole book on leadership. i have no idea how he even slept during the 90s.
