Re: Tupac or Biggie

I prefer Trane & Miles and songs I can understand the lyrics too. I do agree with Tupac though "It's me against the world"

Re: Tupac or Biggie

Dont want to turn this thread political or anything, but does anyone else think Tupac would be a Tea Partier? Just me?

Re: Tupac or Biggie

Regardless of Tupac or Biggie, can we all agree that what's being put out these days is pretty awful? It's no Rakim. I mean really, Drake?! Ugh...Guru is rolling over in his grave.

Re: Tupac or Biggie

They don't make stuff like this anymore

YouTube - Eric B. & Rakim - Juice (Know The Ledge)

YouTube - Geto Boys - My Mind Playing Tricks On Me

I love Drake. He's gotta be one of the better popular lyricists out there now. Give Jimmy a break man! Brother can't walk!

I just met a girl that loves ICP. LOVES them. And I wanna tell her how much I hate them, but I don't have the heart. lol I did like 2 or 3 songs by them when I was like 14.. But at that age you don't know any better. They had some Gathering of the Juggalos and for some reason Tila Tequila (I believe it was her) was there, and they ended up throwing rocks and shit and all sorts of things at her.

Not saying she didn't deserve it. Just sayin.

Really? I totally cringe when I listen to him "rap." It's like he'll sway back and forth between slowly saying words and kind of singing. I hate to say this, but Ke$ha and Justin Bieber (Tom Brady diss) have better flow than most of the so-called rappers on the radio nowadays. Have any of you guys listened to this song called "Toot It and Boot It"?

Both Pac and Biggie are rolling over in their graves.

You know what that statement reminds me of... Remember P. Diddy's 90's protege Mase?

lol man that dude always sounded like he was drinking heavily before he recorded. Never heard a dude slur his words more than Mase. It was like he was rapping with a lisp.

Ha! Good call on Mase... interestingly enough, he didn't always used to sound like a slow lisper. When he was Murda Mase, dude could actually rhyme (laid down stuff with Big L).

are you talking about guru from gangstarr who came up with super intelligent lines like

lemonade is a popular drink
and it still is
i get more props for my stunts
than bruce willis

like baggy jeans
im crazy hip hop
check one two
and you dont stop

guru was good with step in the arena and hard to earn, but come on man, dj premieres beats were the only reason that gangstarr was who they were.

sorry, i used to love gangstarr but guru was so cheesy imo. just like common was good with Can i borrow a dollar and resurection then he went cheesy too. at least with common you could see that his music evolved as he matured and that was the reason for his decline from being a true hip hop mainstay. his artistic motivations changed as his life changed. guru? i dont even know what that short bama is doing, probably trying to put out jazzmatazz 13.

Well I was talking more so about the presentation than the lyrics themselves. Though Rakim's verses were a...mazing. Who knows what guys like Drake are even saying?

Guru passed away earlier this year, hence the rolling over in his grave comment

Re: Tupac or Biggie

yeah sorry SS, i just got this mental hangup to go on a rant whenever someone says guru was good lyrically. its a problem i have identified, when i will be able to let it go i just dont know.

dang i didnt even know he passed away. im real surprised i didnt hear that or i probably heard it then forgot it.

I do. I can rap some of his songs from heart. Dedicated fan! Well okay, so I just like him because he's sexy. But it counts! I don't think it's really hard to tell what Drake's rapping about, if you listen to the "Thank me Later" CD, there's really decent stuff on there... "Fireworks" and "Unforgettable" are 2 of my favs... Especially since he sampled the "At Your Best" cover by Aaliyah, originally by the Isley Brothers for the "Unforgettable" track.

I have a much harder time with Weezy's lyrics, and I love Weezy cause he has some killer rhymes but some of his lines are just ridiculous.

"Turn you into a vegetable like you lying in soup." Come on Weezy...
