    Lets agree to disagree. For me it’s top three, I know most people dont think so. But its also the first one to drop, the first to start it all. It has its place. Now, I’m not a big fan of the Staff Development tape either, but most of yall like it so, what can I say…

    Z-RO? I thought he was a god down there.

    ^^

    I was really talking about havin the family/ movement mentality when houston had its pop. Them niggas did not let Cham, Flip & Z-ro get shine.

    the fans loved them, but he didn’t get any shine. Cham made his own shine & flip got blackballed almost.

    Z-ro is also kinda viewed as a generation earlier. Like he is associated with Face but the swishahouse movement was what the kids bumped & thats what blew up.

    Ye USED to be mad humble.

    He had this old Allhiphop interview where he was practically dissin himself.

    saying shit like “what am I doing, no one wants to hear songs about my mom. I should be rapping about cars”

    & at first I thought he was being sarcastic, but the whole interview is like that. If I find it i’ll link it.

    I don’t think Pac would diss CH because they both Interscope.
    And biggie wouldn’t because he is Reppin NY.

    You can’t assume they would hate it. Especially because you don’t know either of them. That was a very stupid assessment.

    @ Rey,

    i used to stan for Ye, but I think he has moved past us(hip hop culture, not music). I don’t dislike him now & i think he has a lot of interesting things to say. His music is dope, but I don’t relate to him anymore. He is different & I don’t know if its good or bad. Congrats to him for being able to do what he wants though.

    Tr 2 couldn’t hold my attention.

    @ Big_Seth – I can see what you mean, but I could personally relate to 808’s, so I appreciated the project. I do want him to go back to rapping though. Any further left and, yeah, I don’t know if I’d be able to relate to what he’s doing.

    Then again, even if it gets sonically weirder, as long as he’s telling stories about real people and real issues, I might be able to hang on a bit longer.

    ^what does that mean Rigz

    ^^^

    Well, I said

    “I’m as strong as a chan that binds
    So I need a Queen with an ancient mind
    Its real long to train a dime, just to fly at the pace I climb”

    Basically saying even if I try to train a girls brain to think on the same wavelength as mine…She’ll still only ever be able to run as fast as I can walk

    Climbing takes alot more effort, and she still cant move at a faster pace than me even though she’s flying…Regardless of the lapse in difficulty

    Hope that makes sense

    On every C Ham mixtape there are 3 great joints.
    On WITA they are: Neverland, Match.com and Psycho Bitch.
    And since they are all free- I got to say i fucks with dude.

    The studio album, if it ever comes, will be the test if he can beat that .300 average and become a star.
