Nas is HipHop...and HipHop is dead. We're now in the age of RAP music. Rap music is garbage, hiphop has meaning. Nobody wanna jam meaningful sh*t anymore, and thats becuz people marketing sh*t to young a.ss kids, and young a.ss kids start tryin to rap, and thats how we end up with wack music, cuz Kids aint got sh*t to rap about. Its simple. The rap game will never be the same.

Nas new album is the best cd I heard right now next to Erica Badu . The album speaks to you so clear . The message is so clear to the black people but we choose to ignore. You have to give it up to Nas he's deserves respect. He made an album dedicated to the struggle . Dedicated to the struggle black folks's been threw . And currently going threw . Its fu*ked that all we want to hear from these rappers now days are there stories about there fu*ked up lives . So there for the rappers of today can never really get around this negative image of our selves we sell. Becuase thats all we want tho hear is negative sh*t. THATS THE STATE OF HIP-HOP RIGHT NOW . Its no longer a culture its just a business now . With no Love or Substance.



Much respect to all the Revolutionary Artist's...

Truthiness dodges any verbose posts with valid points, choosing only to respond to the most incoherent responses with weak arguments. You're worse than Floyd Mayweather, ducking motherfu*ker. Go ahead and retire.

Truthiness "loss".

Edit: Typo, before you use that as criteria for saying I "loss".

That's 95 % of Boxden, you have to be more specific, boy.

Me and Money is both undefeated, so I guess I'm in good company. See how I made that work against you? n*gga I'm nice.

Stop biting the style, boy. Make me take my off belt and smack the sh*t out of you.

Too late, You lost...like Nas.


Get'em.

I figured you'd say this, so I'm not impressed, sorry. Close your career by f!ghting an old washed up opponent, and an overrated junior-welterweight instead of the real competition because of trepidation of getting that a.ss wrecked. Again, please retire.

I guess the album that i thought was a classic is wack now cuz he didnt sell much...God what a lame album now. He should retire now cuz even though the album had a good message, the white kids, the girls bought weezy instead. Threadstarter can suck a d*ck with that comment lol. Are u implying that we should support music based on sells? Or substance? Wayne has a good album too but your basing things on sells like your 50 cent. With stupid comments like that, can u imagine if people thought like that how watered down hip hop would be u freakin dumbass

Samari Rolle is a bum, just like your weak a.ss post. Let me break it down for you...Get'em

Not trying to impress you, boy. Just letting you know, me and Money are both undefeated.

Close your career by f!ghting an old washed up opponent,
Which would be you, you know the "the old washed up bum" who is about to get a L.

an overrated junior-welterweight instead of the real competition because of trepidation of getting that a.ss wrecked.
Did Money Mayweather fu*k your mother or something, boy? It's strange you say he hasn't beaten anybody and equate me with him, yet I'm giving you AL just like he gives all his opponenet. Are you calling yourself a nobody? Don't answer that, we both know you're a nobody and losing, just like Nas.

Again, please retire.
NO!


Inability to detect sarcasm? Check
I detect, but you danced around with it so much, that I got bored.

Humorless cliched attempts at comedy? Check.
Now you're just lying boy. That sh*t was funny, I'm nice.



You mean I "loss". Learn how to spell, boy.
Stop biting the style, boy. You loss, you lost, you're a loser, just like Nas...Epic Fail, boy.


In case you couldn't tell with my last line, I'm being satiric again.
Yeah, I could tell, but you're not very good at it. Is your whole strategy to bore me until I give up? Well it might work, boy. Because the sh*t you talking is just nonsensical bullsh*t. I mean your whole argument is me dissing Nas record sales, which I haven't done once. All I'm saying is Nas lost, loss, failed, and his album was a joke. I don't give a fu*k with he sales, really. I just enjoy making bi*ches and boys like you mad, like this..


NAS LOST.

 Addled Thoughts said:
Well, in all truth I like Lil' Wayne. He doesn't bother me. However, the only aspect of his work that stands out is his horrid, nasally monotone that at times evokes E.T. As for Nas, his work and longevity speak for themselves.

In this day and age, selling 180K in a week is almost what 500K would have been five-to-seven years ago. As rampant as downloading and bootlegging is, you would have to a.ssume for every single album sold, there is at the very least 2-to-3 being downloaded or burned.

Then again, if we're mentioning how Nas has lost due to his sales, we shouldn't be remiss in reminding you that in a round-about manner you're mentioning that a homos3xual won and Nas has lost. You see, Lil' Wayne was caught kissing another man dead on the lips. There isn't any 'no homo,' quips which could clear that up.

Also, why are you mentioning people not knowing how to write proper sentences when your retorts to thier reponses are nearly as worse as thier's are.

You should refain from using an ellipsis in every sentence. It's proper use is for emphasis and segues; something all your sentences do not need since they aren't properly supported by rhetoric preceeding it.

Write a real sentence. Stop being an anti-Nas stan and enjoy the music.

I think the real issue here is Hip-Hop is the only music in which our legends aren't applauded and lauded for their durability in such a fickle landscape. We should support them like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin are by buying thier albums and seeing thier shows -- which is where the majority of money is made for artists in these times.

But we don't.

We post rampant BS about someone failing when in all actuality they in one week probably made more money than you will make in two to three decades of your existence on this Earth.

Garner some perspective.
Retort?

I never said he was great at what he does. I used him to illustrate my point of your immaturity.

 THE TRUTHINESS said:

You've already taken several Ls. The fact that you flock to any Nas thread that arises, bringing your tired generic post: "Nas lost".

 THE TRUTHINESS said:
Which would be you, you know the "the old washed up bum" who is about to get a L.
I'd actually be Miguel Cotto, the opponent that you duck to avoid hitting the mat. I don't know why you didn't follow in Money's steps in this regard.

I would ask the same about Nas; the fu*k has he done to you? Now you're making up statements for me. I never said he hasn't beaten anybody. I only made the parallel that you both picked on weak opponents and ducked the real competition [late in his career]. I'm not taking anything away from Mayweather's complete body of work in entirety.

I'll say it again, you ducked strong posts and "hand-picked" your opponents by picking the f!ghts that were easy wins. Again, I'm talkin end of Mayweather's career - the comparisons between he and you stop there.

 THE TRUTHINESS said:
Now you're just lying boy. That sh*t was funny, I'm nice.
I'll throw you a bone to help you instill some self-confidence. It was funny, *pats you on the back*.

I'm obviously not boring you if you're taking the time to respond to me. I don't see where I've said any nonsensical bullsh*t. Thenagain, anybody who says something that you disagree with is spewing nonsensical bullsh*t.

You haven't dissed Nas' record sales once? By virtue of you coming into this album with your generic post of "Nas lost" one would be led to believe that you're saying he lost because of his "flop". If not, then I retract any argument regarding the implication that you're using sales in your argument.

I've wasted enough time attempting to reason with you. You're obviously vehement with your skewed views, so go ahead and continue with your flat jokes, say what you will. It's apparent that Nas will remain on your mind.

On that note I gracefully bow out; my attempts to come to an understanding with you are futile.

Does this make it a good rap album? If an album sells it just means it has pop appeal. It has little to do with how good a rap album is from a technical standpoint.



If you cats really believe that the SoundScan determines the quality of an album then believe that. You've already been indoctrinated into believing this, and you brainwashed ignorami will continue to believe what you will.

How many classic rap albums really do the numbers, honestly. How many bullsh*t albums sell well? And are you a Mos Def fan? He's dope, but he doesn't exactly sell records either.

Don't know why anybody, including myself, is trying to change anybody's mind though. When The Roots, Common, Talib, or anybody else who puts out a dope album "flops" nobody comments on it. Nas must really be on people's minds :D

people buy what the like just because YOU or the internet rap fans dont like something doesnt mean someone else cant like it or appreciate it.

if the hip hop is dead sheep actually went out and purchased an album that they claim is good maybe record companies would mainstream record labels would put more of it out

my feeling has always been everyone who claims hip hop is dead k!lled it because there the ones that claimed this artist or that artist was better but never either A paid full price (bootlegger) b downloaded

quality gets purchased and obviously nas didnt put out a quality album if only 180,000 people thought it was good enough to buy
