You n*ggas are idiots so you have to be a rapper to have a opnion on hiphop? If that's the case nobody should be on this site
its just funny that somebody that used to rap who doesn't do it anymore is saying this instead of trying to fix it

its not like he can't find any talent instead he wants to be on the voice

You know pop just means popular right..
Not only. It's also a specific genre of music.

James Brown was popular but he was not making pop music.

ok now that's when sh!t gets confusing. wtf was pop music back in the 50's-70's

people didn't start labeling pop music with synths and stuff like that til the 80s

he did his duties, made classic music, and now hes doing what HE wants to do with his life.. i think he has every right to say what he said. a person doesnt even need to be in the music biz to make that statement. period. and finding a "talent" wouldnt help at all. it will take years to change the rap game now. just my opinion.

clearly we're talking about pop as a genre cause if we're just talking about "popular" Jay-Z, Kanye and damn near every rapper on the charts is "pop". there are two ways to use the word..

No hate intended by the following..... The "one hit wonder nature" of southern rap kinda lead to this mess. There's a new rapper out of Houston, Florida, and ATL every week..LITERALLY! Back in the day, if you were from NY, NJ, Philly, Chicago, Detroit, and Cali you had to have clout to get in the game. People had to actually have heard of you and recognize your talent for any type of respect. Now all you need is an affiliation to the current hottest label, video on YouTube, and someone blogging out your wak a.ss track for attention. The influx of this wakness k!lls Hip Hop fans' interest and saturates the airwaves with less than desired music.

Ceelo might be doing pop right now but he has atleast 1 classic HIP HOP album under his belt with Goodie Mob. Ceelo can outrap half these dudes out right now.

I def agree with you. No knock on the south & all that I live in NC but you right.
Me on the otherhand...

I will continue to stick by my "Puff Daddy single handedly ruined Hip Hop" theory. lol

i mean if you look past "cee-lo" being the person saying it I don't get how anyone can disagree. What's the lie in what he said?
