    now, what is dead in some respects, is a diversity of artistic viewpoints in hip hop. gangster rap still takes up way too much space in the genre. way too many tough guys.

    ^^^

    Exactly, ni99as spend more time twittering about their personal lives or that of other rappers that it makes it all too gimmicky. I can understand critiquing the art or work of another artist but getting in2 takinfg baby mommas shopping and shit is not whats up! The element of realism in hiphop that leads to a lot of fakery. Ni99as just wanna do shit to say they did it.

    I gotta disagree. That shit was amazing.

    I had a chance to do some work with this cat a couple years back, but I was too busy smoking weed to be gainly productive. Still not sure if I lost or not.

    AHH whatever. I stand by my statement. Shits DEAD>RIP creativity

    ^

    but, ok.

    u even named a couple rappers. Ye and Cudi…those two are of some of the most popular right now and definitely innovative. Wayne is frankly the hottest emcee alive and he’s wild innovative. like it or not, C3 was some next level shit

    Jigga tries hard as hell to be innovative and people consider him to be so i guess that counts. and the key to Gucci’s fame is what he does on the mic, obviously not his content, but his sound, his skills as an orator are definitely fresh.

    niggas is doin new things and they gettin love for it.

    @ B-ease, thats expected.

    Tia and her girlfriend shopin for minks while 50 laughed his ass off was one of the funniest things on video this year, almost as funny as Ross’s response…”yeah I told her, go get that paper girl” Roffle

    recording his mom taking a nap where she work at and then the front of her house was extra foul tho.

    Guess i’m alone when it comes to thinking that was some sucker shit. Anyone can take another human shopping, not that difficult.. especially if its a scorned ex!! O well…

  11. Roof do the Houdini Says:

    There’s a difference between being force fed some bull shit and actually hearing some creative noise. Look at yourself and the mirror and recite some Gucci. Or some lil wayne CIII. You’ll probably look dumb as fuck.

  12. Chief Ali aka The One Who Stay Building Says:

    you still rockin that ankle tat of the pisces symbol nigga?

    you the only nigga I know that cut your jeans above the knee and fray them joints.

    lmao@rocking frayed ends

    yo, this nigga cOLD was on CNBC with a bowtie and overalls talking about how he only invests in companies that manufacture sex toys

  13. Beezy Says:

    you won’t believe what Bernard’s girl told me

  14. Smear Says:

    That shit is like where the nas/jay beef was called up for foul play… but I always thought SuperUgly was nasty as fuck….but in the best possible way….”Me and the boy A.I. got more in carmen, get it?” What could Nas say to that shit?
    Now Cam’s “Take your daughter R.Kelly/have my way with her face” was pushin the envelope…but shit still sounds hilarious on record tho. Or maybe my moral compass is fucked the eff up.

    ^ anyone can take another human shopping true, but not an extravagant one, that’s where the ether’s embedded.

  16. TheCo!!inB Says:

    i’ma be honest. if Curtis put up video of my mom I woulda went to see that nigga and whatever happened woulda happened. Your mom? The joke stopped being funny right there. i’d have to kick that niggas biscuit it.

    ^^LOL
    or just avoid the mess and hang yourself. Having said that, Gucci’s almost childlike fascination with words/alliteraton is pretty entertaining. And I always thought he was retarded. Apparently he was a scholarship student……no kidding

  18. cOLD Says:

    What could Nas say to that shit?

    ^ uh um… Last real nigga alive?
