Hip hop died when the Polo Gs, Juice Words and x#xs came along.
x#x and Juiceworld were very talented. You donít know what youíre talking about. They rapped and sang.

XXX was out here rapping over boom bap and made it a bop

Well you can't really plant an NBA player

But there are players who do absolutely nothing to show talent, but still get paid off of it and also can say they are officially nba playersÖ.

Ye but they ain't superstars, they can be the 13th man off the bench and are still better than 99% of normal folks

With rap a plant can become a superstar

NBA you gotta have some level of talent

Honestly rap and nba both mirror each other. A bunch of n1ggas chasing money with no heart for it. These n1ggas dont even rap anymore. They just snitch on beat

If we are calling a spade a spade, white rappers take the art of rap more seriously than black rappers.

And what’s crazy is that if u post a dope white rapper, like let’s say millyz…. n1ggas will say it’s trash, weak, no ski1l, corny etc but will call future a GOAT. And it’s even worse if you say a rapper like millyz is better than future.


It’s especially night and day when u compare white female rappers to black ones.


We gotta start takin rap more seriously in terms of ski1ls. Not every song has to be for the club, the whip, the party etc or be judged AGAINST that. just show you KNOW how to rap


It’s just an easy way to make money now. Notice we don’t have any instrumentalists. Everybody’s running to RAP. Everybody wanna RAP

TI is a legend knows that hip hop is dead
He is but he needs to clarify. Because hip hop is not dead.


Mainstream hip hop is dead. I am glad it's nothing but junk out there and people are getting tired of it.

He dropped multiple hot albums before being offered ATL, which by all accounts wasnít even a high budget film.

No he wasn't. ATL released in what, 06?

For those who are trained musicians he is 100% correct - music like many things in the past was a closed society of people who could write , sing , arrange , produce , & play. Even prodigies so talented they are/were self taught.

I come from a musical family & spent time in the church where people woke up talented. K

The bar was super high to even be on the same stage - if you couldnít hang you were a backup at best.

This goes for rap and singing as well, and if youíre so inclined you wouldnít call what we are getting now music. Now It is artistry and curation, and talent has taken a back seat. The kids love it though - the weirder the better.

In 1996, T.I. befriended local rapper Big Kuntry King, together they sold mixtapes out of the trunk of their car. Kawan "KP" Prather, a record executive, discovered T.I. and then signed him to his record label Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment.

Upon signing with Arista Records subsidiary LaFace Records in 1999, he shortened his name from Tip to T.I.

T.I. released his debut album, I'm Serious, in October 2001 through Arista Records.[17] The album spawned the single of the same name featuring Jamaican reggae artist Beenie Man on June 26, 2001. The single received little airplay and failed to chart. The album features guest appearances from his Southern hip hop group P$C, Jazze Pha, Too Short, Bone Crusher, Lil Jon, Pastor Troy and YoungBloodZ, as well as Pharrell Williams of American record production team The Neptunes (who called him "the Jay-Z of the South").[18]

The production for I'm Serious, was handled by The Neptunes, DJ Toomp, Madvac and The Grand Hustle Team. Despite the album's guests appearances and production team, the album peaked at number 98 and only sold 163,000 copies in the United States.

Due to the poor commercial reception of the album, T.I. was dropped from Arista Records.[17] He then formed Grand Hustle Entertainment and began releasing several mixtapes with the assistance of DJ Drama. He resurfaced in mid-2003, appearing on fellow Atlanta-based rapper and former label-mate Bone Crusher's hit single, "Never Scared". His mixtapes and mainstream exposure from "Never Scared", eventually recaptured major label attention and T.I. signed a joint venture deal with Atlantic Records.
I'm Serious "only" sold 163K records. Man how times have changed
