… like IFUX/WSwagger said … its ignorance … the majority of the cats hating on someone like Fat Joe or KRS1 or SugarHill Gang, are probably too young to remember the impact these artists had on the game … so like most other followers, they dislike what they dont know or understand …

â€¦ Joey Crack is a legend â€¦ love it or hate it â€¦
^By what standards, might I ask.
â€¦ by MY standards â€¦ after all, what the hell else matters ? â€¦
â€¦ and since you asked: â€¦
â€¦ Fat Joe > Heavy D â€¦
*adopts B-Boy Stance with TS chain un-tucked*
^Futile. That nigga is garbage these days. I liked maybe 3 or 4 songs off of All or Nothin’, and the beat and hooks was what saved those few songs.
Joe Budden > Joey Crack
Mood Muzik 1 -3 > anything after Don Cartagena
Tell Joey Wack to find another ghostwriter.
I can’t believe niggas really defend the asseration that has become duke. I don’t give a fuck how many albums he got… how many years he put it… and how many Latin people he helped out. His dumbass shoulda made peace with the rest of TS and perhaps they coulda wrote him some better material. He don’t even get a download. Seriously.

yo all in all fat joe may bea legend but he has been on a decline just like billz said since don cart
and i think that is what the people are truly saying
^ *dapz* That’s ALL I’m sayin’ fam, nah mean?! Damn, I knew I wasn’t the only one with unclogged ears with a rational and functional brain. Hell, even Michael Jackson has put out some wack shit recently.
Is the East Coast doin’ that bad? We tryin’ to latch on and uphold wackness because of longevity?
… i overstand that position BK2LV … because I havent payed for a FatJoe lp since “Loyalty” … but for some to deny him his place in hiphop history doesnt make sense … shit, WuTang hasnt made a truly good lp since ” The W” (and some hate that lp) … does that mean they are not legends ? … RunDMC has no recent work … are they not legends? … i overstand joey has been on cruise control, but so is Hov … so is NaS … so is 50 … so is Pharoah Monch … the whole INDUSTRY has dumbed down … why target just FatJoe …
… and i overstand saying that you prefer listening to Budden over Fatjoe … but to imply the Budden is half the career MC that Fat Joe is, is borderline insanity … that dopefiend HAS ONE FREAKIN lp … and IT bricked … one REAL lp, Budden fans … just one … fuck a MM2, MM3 or a 9MM … Budden is unfulfilled potential … a has been, before he even became one … c’mon Mayor, i know thats one of your faves, but Homie … surely, you cant be serious ? …
bottom line is not that we donâ€™t revere our forefathers
itâ€™s that our forefathers donâ€™t know how to act
KRS is not nice anymore lyrically
furthermore this ninger wants to go start a fucking religion, the temple of hip-hop
same with a lot of these dudes, they have no marketable skills so they keep rapping even if it detracts from their legacy
word life some of these dudes could have had such an impeccable reputation but they dragged themselves thru the mud
KRS is corny point black period
even though i stopped reading after u said KRS is not nice lyrically, allow me to retort…
first of all the man WAS IS and ALWAYS WILL BE one of the dopest freestylers (real off the dome, not previously written sh*t spit to a beat and passed off as freestyle) in the HISTORY of this game we call hip-hop.
2nd , you are aware that the marketing ad directors of Nike CHOSE him to be featured on the Better than Ever been 25 year anniversary dedication track, right? Sounds like he must still be relevant/ and or have some sembelance of marketable skills.
3rd I must concur starting some sort of offshoot religion from the Temple is by definition blasphemy, but I do overstand what he is trying to accomplish, somwehat similar to what the NOI and their somewhat perverted interpretation of Islam in the 1940’s-60’s hoped to accomplish for the poeple, simply what they (in this case Kris) felt was culturally and socially responsible thing to do.
4th I don’t even know how to respond to your assertion that Kris has “tarnished his legacy” or, “dragged his name thru the mud.”
How so? I only see him continuing to add on to an already undeniable legacy as
I’m feeling this track, and like someone said above, I like that hes bringing Brolic back, although I never stopped using it. Is it me, or did he just jack Lil waynes entire flow?? Say it aint so Joe, you still got some fans, dont lose us now too.
