Drake dare I say could be the GOAT in 2 years
If it isn't for an 'older' head, then the song will definitely be lost in the water because the soundscape is fundamentally outdated. No one will be listening to this track. Onyx need to seriously rethink their approach to what they are making at this point in their lives.
I need me a copy at once!
Id say people should tell Jay Electronica to hurry up and deliver the kinda conscious music you looking for. Jay Z at this point has spent a quarter of his life making not just gangsta rap but "conscious" gangsta rap. He did his job for Hip Hop already and when you listen to shit like Oceans from the album he just released last year. There is a very in depth level of consciousness still present in Jays music today.
But there is and has always been more there. When people say Jay only raps about hustling? I question if they even really listening. I get what your saying but there is sense in what Jayz is saying on records and alot of times when you try to talk sense into kids in the streets and you say hey ya'll should do this and that... and they say yeah but how much paper you got? The reason they ask that question is because if you trying to preach to them, they want to know if you have reached some kinda level of success. In their mind success equals alot of money because to them alot of money equals freedom. Jay's perspective reaches people in another way cause its from the perspective of being in their shows at one point. Its not like Jay was the preachers son.
