You sound rediculous man. Times change lil wayne made a 2 classic albums. Cash money rise to power would have if biggie and Pac were alive. They cannot stop the evolution of time. Things change sir. Music changes.
Technology has ruined the sale of music. The artist don't even make money like they should. None of these guys would stop someone else from making it in music. I mean why people say stuff like that is beyond me.
actually the instance rise of gangsta rap music is linked to bith pac and bigs death, their deaths pushed urban rap music in to the mainstream more than anything else
you had a handful of rappers who cud go 2x plat after 1997 you had dozens upon dozens of rappers going 2x plat, some 5 times plat some 8 times platt
Badboy built an entire empire out of Bigs death, when BIG was alive Puff wasnt even worth 50 million, after his death and a tribute record, the money started rolling in
Pacs death deathrow was worth 500 million. Interscope had never seen so much money pouring in, few years back they were on the verge of bankruptcy
The value of hip hop and the money that came in after the deaths of Big and Pac far exceeded anything that was made in the years prior.
