random thoughts about hip hop...
Wonder what Jay Z saw in Amil?? He signed her but not Foxy Brown? Makes no sense to me
Biggie's and Tupac's murders are STILL unsolved
I remember when Master P was a bigger mogul than Puffy and Jay Z
Maybe there should be a "age limit" when rappers get in their 40s. LoL
Not hating on him...but...LL Cool J has had a nose job.
I've always had a crush on MC Lyte.
I remember when my mom heard me listening to the cuss words of NWA. She told me to "take that shit out of her damn house." Haaaaa
Never under estimate the influence that Luke Skyywalker (aka Uncle Luke aka Luther Campbell) has had on the game of hip hop.
Funny how people complain about the "influence of hip hop" but hip hop is used to sell everything from bras to dish detergent
Hip hop is the new "N" word. It's a way of saying it without saying it. For example..."Those in the hip hop culture embrace the thug life attitude."
The NBA instituted a dress code for its players because they were dressed "too much like rappers." But if you go to an NBA game...the only thing that you'll hear in the areana is hip hop music!??!
I've always been a fan of "backpack rappers" like Common, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Mos Def, and Little Brother
Ok...who's cuter...Salt, Pepa, or Spinderella?
Remember Yo MTV Raps hosted by Fab 5 Freddy?
Rememver when Rap City was hosted by Chris Thomas aka Da Mayor. Then it was hosted by Prince Da'Jur aka the dude with the "Good Hair" lol
There is a difference between rap and hip hop
People used to hate on Hammer for selling a lotta records. Nowadays, you had BETTA sell a lotta records...or else!
Long live the memory of Jay Dilla. Gone but not forgotten.
My sons only know him as "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" or as Will Smith...not The Fresh Prince.
Hip hop was supposed to be a passing fad in the early 80s. And look at it now.
Lil Wayne is a good rapper. The best alive??? Nooooo, Wayne's not even in the top 30
Nas beat Jay Z in their battle. It took me a while to admit that.
KRS-One is one of the best MCs to ever grab a mic. He also has one of the biggest noses that I've ever seen in my life.
Roxanne, Roxanne...I wanna be yo man
You have to admire the longevity of some MCs who've remained relevant
I hated to see EPMD break up! Same with Eric B and Rakim
There is a generation of kids who know Flavor Flav from tv and not from the days with Public Enemy.
I'm from the South. I live in the South. But I can't identify with most of the music that is coming from the South right now. It's not music...its noise.
Goodie Mob came out before Outkast. Ever wonder why they didn't blow up like them?
Love Wu-Tang Clan. Most people don't understand them. I do
The great thing about hip hop was that it took you places mentally. I could listen to BDP, Geto Boys, or NWA and be in the Bronx, Houston, or LA...even though I had never been there before.
Where have all of the great female MCs gone? MC Lyte never had to take most of her clothes off to get attention.
"Thanks for coming out. God bless you. Goodnight." - Russell Simmons (the GodFather of hip hop)
