Old School, New School Need To Learn Tho'
I love 50. I love what he brings to the table. He brought back that tough, take-on-all-comers[!!] attitude that was severely lacking in hip hop after 'Pac was killed. "Lyrics" snobs say he can't rap well, but hip hop is bigger than just rap. That "who's your top five/ten dead or alive" shit is annoying as hell. Who the fuck cares?
I dont always listen to his songs but I never miss his interviews.
50 is a WWE wrestling-type shyt talker, not a earnest rap artist.Real rap artists like The Roots or Tribe or OutKast "compete" by continuously dropping dope albums.Nas is maddeningly inconsistent due to his meh beats disease, but his classic album Illmatic "out competes" 50's entire life by a factor of infinity.
I'm entertained... Truly entertained. He said it well "How can someone with so many holes in their background do that?" I'd love to see Officer Ricky delivering diabetic supplies to Wilford Brimley's crib in Florida...
Come on, it's only okay if it's original and backed by some good music... He makes shitty music... he should concentrate on that...
aw 40 I so thought a comment about 50 getting shot was going to follow the "How can someone with so many holes in their background do that?" comment.
"You got all those holes back there and you still making the moves first?" *dead*
@TimmoPU~ FAIL on my part for not slamming home such an easy set up of a joke.
Love 50. I slept on him for a while...thought he started too much shit. But, i gotta give dude props, he can write a song. I'm still pumpin Corner Bodega, Da Repercussions - thats some Shame on a nigga wu tang type ish, and Lay You Down on G-Unit's Beg for Mercy is a rap masterpiece.
