â€¦ wow HipHop fans are mad fickle â€¦ tough crowd â€¦
â€¦ i aint never posting my shits here â€¦ EVER â€¦
^What does that have to do with the cost of goats in Ghana? If you think you nice, put it out there. Shit, I think I can freestyle off the top better than anyone on here… vet, lurker, or otherwise. I just refuse to prop a ninja and start talkin’ about his past while he’s fuckin’ up in the present. Garbage music is not acceptable.
… but again Mayor … its more than just LP’s … smh … FatJoe is a HipHop Icon … period … he is recognizable ON SIGHT all over the world … he gets movies, acting appearances, ringtone deals since 199- … i agree that since LOYALTY (which came AFTER Don Cart) he hasnt had a great lp … but since 1993, he has been able to market himself successfully all over the world … FOR 15 years … regardless of ghostwriters or any other external assistance, who else can boast of that type of longevity, in a realm of 1 and 2 hit wonders …
… we’re at the point where we’re almost agreeing but still debating … lmao …

Landlord if you muslim how come you aint got a beardâ€¦I thought in the Muslim/Islam religionâ€¦the man who doesnâ€™t rock a beard is considered a homosexualâ€¦and they get killed in Iranâ€¦
… you thought wrong … i am not Iranian … and nowhere in The Glorious Holy Qur’an, does it MANDATE that a man wear a beard… the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) suggested that Muslims grow their beards to distinguish themselves from the infidels, but it is not mandated by Islamic Law (Sharia) … it is moreso a timeless cultural practice …
to imply the Budden is half the career MC that Fat Joe is, is borderline insanity â€¦ that dopefiend HAS ONE FREAKIN lp â€¦ and IT bricked â€¦ one REAL lp, Budden fans â€¦ just one â€¦ fuck a MM2, MM3 or a 9MM â€¦ Budden is unfulfilled potential â€¦

i judge an artist on their ENTIRE BODY OF WORK â€¦ not just their highlights or missteps â€¦
so being positive is being corny now? teaching youts about positivity and knowledge of self is corny now? what, because he doesn’t have lyrics about “toting a strap” or “making it rain on hoes, that’s corny?
if the general consensus is that “KRS is corny” then hip hop lost.
to me, the majority of hip hop artists right now are corny as fuck, recycling the same gangsta cliches every goddamn time…now THAT’S corny.

^I think the last sentence might be the most profound and relevant of all because now you’re talkin’ about stuff outside of music. When mentioning the embodiment of what it is to be a legend MUSICALLY, then Fat Joe is NOT a legend. He has released 8 albums (10 if you include the group albums) and only 3 of his solo shits can even be held next to who we call legends in the game MUSICALLY:
JayZ… Nas… LL… Ghostface… Redman… AZ…
Just to name a few. Many people learn to stay consistently good without the other oulets of media attention and marketing schemes. For that reason, I will NOT make an exception for Fat Joseph.
