    ^why, because it was uplifting?

    ^^
    lol, naw that Mozart interpolation was obvious, and gets really grating after the first couple of listens. And I always think choruses of kid voices is corny. Word to that one Trick Daddy song. I appreaciated what he was trying to do, but to me, as a song it didnt work.

  2. Beezy Says:

    Brother Ali and Freeway are like the two sides of a Ying-Yang symbol.

    I mean he can act all aggressive and type tough all he wants.

    Boosie, reality check bruvah….You in front of a PC. Stupid nigga.

    You’re just getting violent with the computer screen. Stop being confrontational with your keyboard homie.

    Go ahead and slam your laptop on the floor and you can watch as all the kids at LSU laugh and make fun of you at the Library, homie.

    I know, I understand Boosie. It’s hard being Black and being Emo-Goth. Fucking faggot.

    ^I got what you’re saying, but me personally, the lyrics on this shit was so powerful, informational and inspiring that it really didn’t matter what beat he was rhyming over. This will forever be one of my fav Nas songs

    Nas “I can” was wack juice, only reason ninjas did like it was because of the message. Kinda like singing a church song on the apollo, you know ninjas can boo you, no matter how bad the song, or your singing is

  33. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    how do you compliment a male r&b artist?

    like, how do i explain what i like about their music? i WOULD say i like the nigga trey songz’ voice, but that’d be a lil suspect. . .

    but if you got that nigga singin ya hook, chances are your song is 10x better. . . .

    LOL, that’s ridiculous.

    fuck what you heard. . . especially since r&b >>>> rap

  38. Words is Born Says:

    i was always a fan of the male r&b groups (chill, b)…. boyz2men, jodeci, shai, silk, dru hill, 112… etc…

    haven’t been a fan of a solo r&b dude til John Legend… but then again he a lil different when it comes to r&b anyway

  39. Chase Says:

    fuck what you heard. . . especially since r&b >>>> rap

    R&B used to be >>> rap. Now a days both genres suck

    Off the strength of the amounts of kids (yes, KIDS) I know that started researching African history after that song dropped, I’d say he nailed it.

    You’d be suprised how much yutes really didnt know anything he said in that song before he said it. And he said it in a way that was easy to digest for the yutes dem. Everyone could get it

    He had the streets’ attention after Stillmatic & Made You Look, and he used it in a very positive way.

    My Grandmother knows the words to that song. No lie.

    Thats just my opinion tho. I can see why people would deem it as corny, but I think the catchiness kinda makes the song what it is

    Overall, yea, of course.

    But since 1988, hiphop>>>>>>>>>>r&b

    ^Boosie is a liar. I never sent you an e-mail you faggot.

    Fortunately, my life doesn’t revolve around Nahright or its comments like yours does.

    I mean how do you remember shit from like 2 or 3 years ago.

    Do you have a social life? Do you have friends?

    Are you active within your campus community or are you Anti-Social punk with a laptop that stays at your knees?

    Because you trying to get at me (nh) yet your the type of person that creates like 3 or 4 names on nahright, multiple/split personality ass nigga…Please…

    Save me the bullshit

    Nigga, Didn’t you pose to be as a female once, trying to let Eskay and Nation slide from being banned? Trying to give E-Oral favors to let you post? Damn my dude…its really that serious? LOL

    You value nahright over your life…

    ^ tell em rigz– the rampant homophobia’s getting a bit nutty. liking another mans music doesnt mean you want top see them naked; anyone who considers someone suspect becuase of that is a little insecure in their ownself.

  55. kyo Says:

    i feel like such a hipocrite… i bought 808s smh
    im just tired of hearing seeing sounds, lax, and love hate everytime im riding in the whip. and radio is killing my ears with those damn t.i. tracks.
    i’ll bump amazin, paranoid and say you will for a few weeks

  56. Words is Born Says:

    i definitely agree that r&b isn’t what it used to be. personally, i’m more of a soul/funk dude than r&b anyway… from the commercial motown sound to the philly soul sound to funk groups.. i seem to connect to the musical feel a bit more.

    when it comes to rap, i think there’s alot of good music coming out now… whether it’s albums, mixtapes, or loose songs. i think the feeling that hip hop is whack now is attributed to age/development of the fans vs. the genre.

    remember, during the “golden age” of the mid nineties, real old school heads who were teens during krush groove and rapper’s delight were complaining about the genre. they just had different types of complaints.

  57. Beezy Says:

    I can only listen to female R&B singers….listening to another man harmonize is gay.

    So Hood from the real chance of love >

    ^^
    Yea, shorty’s ass was phat as shit. But there’s another chick on there (cant remember her name) that looks like her (Risky), and is less crazy, so I can see why he let her go.

    KO is phat as shit and kind of pretty but I cant fuck with borderline retared chicks. Cali is a brickhouse in the truest sense. And I’d smash MILF. Yep.

    Lets put our paypal money together….lets start a pool (no water)

    How about we purchase Boosie some knee pads….like seriously, all jokes aside…

    You know for those extended periods of time….he’s inclined over Nation and Eskay….desk offices….

    Boosie you like Black Monika Lewinksi……

    You made a college career of being on your knees and bending over for Nahright…
