My n*gga it doesn't matter why he got invited,the fact that he did shows that the n*gga still has relevance in society.
So Will Smith,Ice Cube,and Snoop are irrelevant to hip hop because those n*ggas can't drop a album and sell 500k in a week? That sh*t sounds foolish.I don't let surburban teen-aged kids determine what's relevant to me based on record-sales.In the grand scheme of things hip hop doesn't mean sh*t. It's bigger than that and Common has been able to transcend from being a middle-tier (sales wise) rapper in the 90's to a n*gga choppin' it up w/Obama.
It's chess not checkers b.
i understand what your saying but your being delusional
this not chess or checkers its simple logic
who is hot and who is not
is Nelly relevant?, is 50 relevant?, no
Will Smith and Ice Cube are both known and respected for what they have done for hip hop but are the relevant, no
What they have done outside of hip-hop with acting, Common with poetry etc is what has kept them relevant in media, not Hip-Hop
