    ^We’re are not going thru this again. We had this conversation for like 3 summers on nah right, & came to the conclusion that we baltimoreans call 3/4 shorts capris, there not the capris tennis niggas wear.

    And your head is shaped like a basketball with a titty in it

    … see I’m a Budden stan ( obviously ) but I won’t get heated at that statement I don’t agree and it’s not that I’m saying his personality isn’t corny but I don’t actually know dude well enough to make an informed decision on that, the only thing I can tell you about him personally is I find him to be funny and his girls got a perfect ass other than that all I know about him is what he puts out in his music and I judge his music and music only ….
    ^^
    you watched joy budden tv name one thing he did that was so interesting….go to cap city and buy a fitted (he a fag for putting my spot out their 2) please

    .. naw I agree a lot of the shit is pointless hence why I don’t watch it unless it’s posted here, and truthfully that one was kind of corny but I can’t judge someone based of something like that, he used to do the morning show on Hot 97 when he was still on def jam and beefing with 50 and them and he was hilarious on that shit he started calling them the 5 heartbeats and all that shit, when they do the clips of all of them in the studio or talking about tracks and he stays cracking jokes on them I find it funny maybe because thats how me and most my friends are we stay cracking jokes on each other, when he said that shit like ” rappers wanna get their notepads or get on their blackberries JOELL ORTIZ ” on the radio that shit was funny to me, I can’t tell you what you find funny but to me the only things I can say about him is I enjoy his music and I think he happens to be funny, I also happen to think the majority of good rappers are funny, Jay-z is a funny motherfucker when he wants to be Em too, now Em can be maaaaad corny but sometimes the 2 go hand and hand, everyone in here has at least 1 or 2 friends that are cornballs but they are still funny and fun to chill with sometimes

  13. b-ease Says:

    The bottom line is this, these artists and entertainers are people just like you and I. Some are emotional, some are irrational, some of misunderstood and some are just fucking weird. As long as they are good at what we pay them to do, which is entertain us, then who gives a fuck about what they believe or how macho they are. Just enjoy the entertainment and leave it at that.

    ^^
    That’s all well and good. I never implied that Talib getting smacked and crying had any effect on how I feel about dude’s music. But to say that getting slapped, by a male or a female, and proceeding to cry is anything less than a clown move is bewildering to me. Any woman thats gonna haul off and smack you in public clearly lacks respect for you, and associating with anyone that doesnt respect you is clown shit. I’m not suggesting he should have hit her at all. That would have been worse. But she def shoulda got tossed in the pool. And LF : I’m pretty sure that wasnt his actual wife.

    I just hate how people call someone corny for thinking for themselves and not being afraid to put their different and abstract views out there

    ^I’m not saying he’s corny for doing him (n/h) i’m saying what he’s doing is corny. I like when artist think for themselves, kanye been skating in his lane & I said I like that new song he did, so i’m not hating on people doing them, but what charles is doing is corny.

    You keep saying I don’t like because he’s doing something different, but truthfully, I think that’s the only reason ya’ll like it, because it is different. I call a spade a spade, it’s reeks of corny-ness

    ^^
    yea just when niggas was barking at me when i said joy budden is the corniest rapper….talented yes but homeboys is the lamest person….i wouldent wanna hang out wit him for nothin his whole crew is lame….joy budden is so fucking lame as a person it seems i wish yall would wake up and realize it…..i rather watch fat bitches play double dutch then watch joy budden….oh yea who call themselves jumpoff who would wanna be a jump off anyway

    ^^^

    lmao @ “Joy Budden”

    I guess since I’m the biggest budden fan on this site I should get mad and tell you how much of an ignorant motherfuker you are because you don’t understand that Mood Muzik is a metaphor for the zone he’s in when he’s high on angel dust and he worships Jay Z

    lmao

    ^^
    ok so smoking dust makes u less lame???? only dust headz than get that off was wu-tang

    ^^^

    you just don’t understand it’s so complex it goes over your head

    see Def Jam is just a metaphor for the obstacles he had to overcome and Jay Z is God and Satan at the same time and Kevin Liles is Joe’s version of Moses cuz he

    fuck it this is ridiculous now

    Grafh>>>>>>Charles Hamilton

    ….. says the guy that says Bone Thugs > Wu-tang, I think your the one whose trying to be different just to be different especially since your the one who came in here and found that quote from Charles to begin with ….

    …. Ecko did fall the fuck off a long ass time ago, they used to have the ill t-shirts and sweatshirts/hoodies ….

    sidenote : when I was an architect we did an addition on the house he lives bought in Jersey, I never met him because my boss always had to go to the house but I would always be like ask him some free clothes but that was when the shit was already falling off anyway and my boss wasn’t having it

    I also almost went and egged his house when he bought the Barry Bonds baseball I really thought about vandalizing the shit out of it but then I realized the attention that would of gotten and it would of been a bad look

  38. Joe 88 Says:

    Low end theory was prolly one of the biggest influences on me wanting to rap, & I was like 8 when that came out. No lie, I remember back when I was a child just listening to any tape that was rap, any tape, from public enemy, to big daddy kane. I really use to love rap back then, I use to look at the box all day, my aunt brought me the tribe single “award tour” cause she knew she could get me any rap tape and I would be happy

    The “what” song on low end theory is my favorite song on there

  39. TheCo!!inB Says:

    anyone ever feel like Raekwons topics and flows were an extreme juxtaposition over RZA beats on Cuban Linx….the only joints I felt like were perfect matches were Scarfaces and Ice Cream

    ^^
    I see where you’re coming (no) from. The beats are hectic and apocalyptic, while Raekwon is calm and deliberate. I think the contrast is what makes it great tho. It’s like calmest cat telling you his story while his world crumbles around him. Besides for Spotrusherz (even RZA said it wasnt mixed right), I think Cuban Linx is absolutely flawless.

    I am not in the Illmatic is GOAT camp. I prefer It Was Written in all honesty

    ^Yep, it was written was incredible, nas story telling on that album was crazy

    I rate them equally. It Was Written was just more polished and Illmatic was raw.

  82. ron Says:

    Cuban Linx was a tight CD. Most people overlook the fact that it was a fucking compilation. All other Raekwon CD’s were whack. Rae was good for a 16 back then but his coke stories are kinda played now. Jay had better street tales in my opinion. Jay shit looked closer to real. After while you look kinda goofy with 90% drug rhymes and short money.

    Co-sign. Illmatic is classic, and a paradigm shifter but

    It was Written>Illmatic

    IWW was much darker and i cant say i liked it more than illmatic but her, shit was dope either way

    I really think reasonable doubt was the GOAT rap album. And i’m a pac stan

    But who really takes my outlook on rap serious? I swear reasonable doubt changed my life

    I don’t. It was definetly not a Raekwon solo album in the purest sense. But that really doesn’t have anything to do with judging its quality tho.

    Illmatic is dope but Maybe because I am from Cali and didnt get the hype, I just thought it was a dope dope album

    Now when I put in the Chronic , OB4CL, 3feet high and Rising, Liquid Swords…I get a whole nother level of Feeling[||].

    I am not in the Illmatic is GOAT camp. I prefer It Was Written in all honesty

    * daps fux * I concur I’d of chosen Stake is High as my de la pick but 3 ft. high and rising I can’t complain about and i am also in the minority that believe
    it was written > illmatic

    Yep. Major label. Kanye and Hove affiliations. Rotation on 106 and TRL. Performed on MTV’s spring break for god’s sake. People are so used to lyrical niggs being not being mainstream that their brain has a hard time wrapping around the fact that Lupe is. No shots.

    If his shit is played on radio a few times a day and his videos are on tv, then he’s mainstream even if he dont wanna be.
