it's not "old n*ggas" hating....it's most likely a bunch of 16-22 year old going through their "mainstream rap is destroying the culture" phase. I did the same thing when I was that age. I hated Ja Rule, Nelly and Diddy with a fiery passion back in the early '00s and I didn't listen to anything but underground sh*t (Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Masta Ace, etc...). I was constantly bi*ching about how much mainstream rap sucks. It really sucks the fun out of being a hip hop fan because it gets to the point where you hate mainstream rap more than you love underground hip hop. As you get older, you realize how trivial the sh*t is and you just appreciate music for what it is, ENTERTAINMENT. If certain artists entertain you, listen to them....if they don't, ignore them. It's really that simple. Once you stop giving a fu*k about what other people decide to listen to and just listen to music you enjoy, you'll be a much happier fan.
They'll never admit it, but I can tell you from experience that they are mad that most of their favorite artists aren't as popular. That's really what it boils down to.
so n*ggas can't express if they feel something is wack anymore
we're in the internet age where people can nick-pick, debate, or celebrate different topics, so when a n*gga enters the rap game, on some emo-horror-fakeslimshadyd12-suburban-rebel sh*t and n*ggas praise em' droppin' a thread a day about homie... u sayin we can't come in the thread and drop a note on how corny dude is?
it ain't like we holding a protest stopping the n*gga cds, we just droppin our 10 cents
