I agree with DMX, I won't listen to Nicki anymore, she's gone too pop, what happened to that hood bi*ch from NY that sounded like the next coming of Foxy Brown, oh right, money.
X gotta keep in mind that she's doing what she gotta do to broaden her appeal, he's stuck in that 90's gangsta mode that will get him nowhere, and furthermore he needs to watch his mouth, Baby is one of the most powerful people in the music industry, not just rap, but the entire industry, nobody is making more money than Cash Money right now, nobody else is spawning hit after hit back to back to back...he's gonna fu*k around and get blacklisted from the game like most other rappers that have gone against their movement
But at the same time I respect him for speaking his mind, he's an OG at this point and doesn't seem to give a fu*k about what he says or who he offends, which can be dangerous, but he needs to spread the hate around and not focus it on Cash Money or its gonna bite him in the a.ss. Let's not forget where B & Slim come from and what they're known to do to people that run their mouth.

I agree with X on mostly everything he says, especially this.... but he seems salty as fu*k. Yeah Nicki Minaj is fu*king horrible for music, america, life, everything.... but she's gettin paid
This is the problem right here with hip hop. Both of you agree with what X says but don't feel he shouldn't say it because Nicki is getting money?? Since when did the sellout route become the way to go?
Yes, labels control everything that comes out but only because artists conform to the demands and let themselves be changed. And we give them a pass because "they gettin money..."
If Every artist woke up tomorrow with X's mindset that I don't give a fu*k, I'm going to make the music I want to make and fu*k what the labels say about it attitude, the entire music landscape would be changed in a couple of months
