'i think i'm outgrowing hip hop'
Yeah, hip hop is almost irrelevant to me now. this new shit is garbage 1 25.00%
If you outgrew hiphop, that means you were never really a fan to begin with 1 25.00%
Fuck that noise, you trendy motherfucker 0 0%
Yo whatever, b 2 50.00%

its the record labels im telling yall, the people only can listen and take what these labels put out.

if these labels never put out a lil boosie or plies or even soulja boy, half the world wouldn't have known who these negroes were.

everybody dont hop on the internet, everybody dont know about boxden.com, allhiphop.com, hiphopdx.com

i was like the only n*gga in my school that were up on these kind of sites.

people down here be in the club and listening to that radio 24/7, and believe it or not some of these mofo's still be watching BET, and MTV Jams.

and the world is fascinated by negativity anyway, these people dont want to hear nothing positive, people like this music about selling drugs, pimpin Ho's, busting guns, or what ever plies be talking about.

it starts at the beginning, DEF JAM's and Interscopes and so so def's and Atlantic and Jive etc


but if the record companies are making money,and gaining profits from marketing the same artist/bullsh*t music...what reason would they have to stop?...so how can the responsibility of what you listen to fall on their shoulders?....they don't have a responsibility to give you balanced,dope music...their only responsibility is to making a profit.....which again leads back to the people being their own worst enemy.....if you are co-dependent on a corporation to give you good music....you will forever be disappointed....

i hear you fam....but that's why i said the internet is a music lovers best friend....people have to start realizing that this isn't 1987 anymore....it's 2008...use the technology that's here for you....you can't blame other people when the technology is here for you to use...i can't stress it enough..record companies don't owe us jack,but to market a product....whether that product is good,or bad is irrelevant....the only thing that matters is if it's moving units..whether physically,or digitally..

but im saying its alot of people like that, they listen to whatever is being put out, only time they choosing whats hot is the selection of rappers thats on that said radio station. you cant tell me the internet is the reason why n*ggas is fu*king with lil boosie more than NAS.

these cats round here mostly dropped out in jr high school, and im talking bout dudes in their late 20's early 30's these n*ggas hardly can work a computer lol, not the new generation

oh i feel you sun...i'm not discounting the record companies part they play in everything....from payola to blackballing n1ggas....and boosie is big,because trill ent is a monster at marketing it's artist down south....they don't give a damn what the record labels are talking...they go out,and make it happen for themselves....they also use the net to market themselves too...i know it's still n1ggas who are "computer dumb"...i'm just saying they gonna have to eventually catch up....like when we went from tapes to c.d.'s...that was a hard transition for me...but you gotta make it happen eventually....


but lmaoo@n*ggas 30 years old not being able to work a cpu....i'm only laughing cause i know some as well...

I love hip hop like Joe Budden likes spitting written freestyles, I love hip hop like Kanye likes to bi*ch about everything, I LOVE HIP HOP like LL Cool J still thinks hes in his prime, I LOVE HIP HOP & will love it until I go deaf or die...BUT WE NEED SOME HOOD, GANGSTER, RUGGED, NEW STORIES, murderER, LYRICAL type hip hop stars in the game.

In 05-07 it was great to have all these backpackin/conscious rappers coming in the game because garbage ATL rappers & the snap movement but damn 3 years later this concious sh*t is stale & a lot of these new backpack n*ggas are wack as fu*k.

If we could get a young Street rappin(kinda like DMX) or young flashy lyrical n*gga (like Fab) or even a young lyrically insane person (like Eminem) to come in the game everything would be alright but n*ggas are so stuck on following trends and tryna be like Lupe, Kanye & Pharrel that I think its gonna be till like 2010 when this backpacker era is over.

I'm not hating on backpackers but when every new rapper is either Soulja Boy garbage, Hell Rell trash, 40 cal street corner/mixtape rapper sh*t or another n*gga like Lupe(but lesser talented than Lupe) Hip Hop starts to get stale.

Yes I know a lot of dope albums came out this year but what 23 & younger artist dropped albums and weren't backpackers? Almost everybody in my top 10 dropped a record this year but i'm tired of those n*ggas. I've heard Nas complain about America before, I've heard Jay spit about coke & how flashy he is, I've heard Kanye & Wayne say some gay sh*t on a record before...I NEED SOME NEW (non backpackin) n*ggaS IN HIP HOP WITH DIFFERENT STORIES FROM DIFFERENT AREAS.

/End Rant

PS: I'm writing this on my Nintendo Wii internet so sorry for the spelling & imcomplete sentences/fragments/paragraphs but if anybody has anything to say share your opinions & lets talk about hip hop like civilized adults.

hip hop is dead to the new breed of "hip hop listeners" tha GARBAGE that is being put out now shouldnt evin be considered hip hop, but i think hip hop will never die, its still here its just changin forms. sooner or later it will go back to the true sh*t

people act like hip hip can't be versatile...why can't there be songs for the club and songs you sit back and chill too....why cant there be lyricists and people who just make that party music...i think thats the problem people wanna pick sides...i like both...but i ain't gonna lie i was listening to music from the early 90s and man i miss that feel for music...people were actually having fun with it

I feel what you are saying but if everyone was still rapping like the 90s then the music from then might not be as special as it is today and artist and listeners might not be able to look back and say thats cool. But don't get me wrong I love that sh*t but at the same time if rap was still the same it would be kinda boring.

I never understood how an artist, let alone a whole region can fukk up hip hip. I mean YOU have a choice in what you like or not, and if any ones to blaim why the media their the ones playin the cRAP over and over again.

to threadstarter:

to you sir: :agreement6:

i believe in the versatility of rap. because everybody hasnt sold drugs, or have a magnificent story to tell. or maybe not evn a good story. but there are kids out there my age that have dance groups and party all of the time. and all they kno is to clown and do dum sh*t. so thats what they rap about. sorry that we all havent k!lled n*ggas and been locked up. guess thats what you need to talk about to be taken seriously as a rapper these days.
