Jesus Christ! So much drama over Drake and other new rappers!...All this hype is making me sick, it's just disgusting! Hip Hop died a long time ago along with real rappers like Biggie, Pac, Eazy, L, Pun, and groups like Public Enemy, De La Soul and Wu Tang...But honestly all this mainstream is just destroying the name of what it once was...Shit I bet half the world is gonna be mad at me for saying this but it's just the way I feel. Stupid beats, Ignorant lyrics and a repetitive chorus is not gonna make you a good rapper, but apparently it will get you a record deal and a fucking platinum album. Like immortal technique said on Industrial Revolution "Fuck the records you sold, cause if you go platinum, It's got nothing to do with luck. It just means that a million people are stupid as fuck." Now some other artists were once great but sell out and change over the years...I know people might say "Oh you can't play the same stuff forever, it gets repetitive and everyone changes." It's kind of true, I mean I guess you gotta move on, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you should forget about your roots and the things that got you were you are...Sometimes I can't help but contrast and compare, when I listen to artists like Nas, Three Six, or Snoop...I just start thinking to myself "Damn, they've changed..." If you compared their new stuff to their old stuff you'd think they're different people because is just not the same...Don't tell me to let go of the past because some of the things we had back then were better than the shit we have now, in this case being music. I don't know man, I just think this shit is depressing, and because of this I try to stay away from mainstream and hyped up artists and bands...Luckily there's still a few rappers who I really respect for their talent and guts. They show commitment to sticking to Hip Hop for love and not for a top chart or record sales...Because of this I admire rappers like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Immortal Technique and others...because these motherfuckers would never bite their tongues for anyone! and will always speak freely through their lyrics. It's Because of lyrics like this that I give these niggas mad props;
"Obnoxious nigga, murderous lyrics
I know that you hear it
now that I'm getting closer and closer I know that you feel it.
your eating off rap, and I hope you choke on your gimmick
niggas said hip hop was dead but I awoken the spirit
we're taking it, back in the day to the golden age
when wack motherfuckers used to get thrown off of stage.
Immortal Technique, I made this the bump in your ride
or burn it off the internet, and bump it outside."
Haha that shit is just Ill...Anyways I think I've talked enough, I just felt like I had to get this out of my system, if you agree with me then good, you appreciate real music if you don't? Then fuck you "I just had to get this stress off my chest like breast reductions".
