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...

Re: Tupac or Biggie

Sorry Dynamite, but Drake is wack. Weezy is also wack IMO. The below Drake parody really says it all:

YouTube - Drake - Best I Ever Had (Parody)

Re: Tupac or Biggie

Easily one of the best song of the 90's and I feel Tupac's best. LOVE this song. And for people that say rap is pointless, this is one of the better ones.

Re: Tupac or Biggie

@Chico: Have you seen the parody of that video? That's got some of the most insanely stupid, yet quotable lines I've heard in a while.

"****ing magnets, how do they work?" Lolllllllllllllll, I'd be suprised if they got a 6th grade education.

@DRave: Don't bother telling her how much they suck, and/or how mentally challenged they are. I've tried that route, and all it does is turn Clown Posse Nation against you. Either she will eventually see it for herself, or she'll turn into one of them. When I see stories like the one about that "Juggalette" who was pregnant, had the baby, and the baby died at birth because her mother didn't know drinking, smoking lots of weed and taking assloads of prescription drugs was bad for the fetus, and how the mother blamed it on the doctors, well it tells me everything I need to know about them.

I do gotta give props to ICP though, if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be able to enjoy ICP parodies because they wouldn't exist. So bless them for that, even if they are turning a large part of my fellow young adults into idiots with no future.

As for Drake/Lil' Wayne, I do enjoy them but I don't think lyrically they match up at all with Biggie and Pac. And even though they are defined as "rappers", when I hear songs where they are speaking almost normally, well it's hard to call them rappers after that. I'm diggin the music but the lyrics just don't compare. For example I love that song "Every Girl" by Young Money but when the entire song is talking about wanting to screw every girl in the world, it's not even comparible to songs like Brenda's Got a Baby.

Completely disagree with this statement.

Why cant they tell their story? Certainly growing up in white suburbia I never was exposed to whats in their music...sure its glorified in a sense, but its real. Just like how people like gangster movies or TV ie the Godfather, the Sopranos...its the samething. I just dont like the arguement people are driven to violence cause of the media. People dont like it, change the channel on the TV or radio. Certainly if more people believed your arguement was valid, it wouldnt have seen the absolute massive growth its experienced in the 20 years...its made a shit ton of money for big media businesses as well. People speak with their wallet.

Not going to have kids but by that logic watching Denzel Washington in Training Day will make all our kids grow up to be corrupt cops.
