    Apathy might be the most underrated dude in a long time. Really, he’s shittin on niccas. I feel bad dude is white, because there’s always only room for only one white rapper and Em has boxed niccas out for a while. But if there were a way to break in, Apathy would be that dude.

    Like anyone is scared of the nigga from “hole in the wall” & “real World” cuz he black. LMAO

    @ Cold
    I left up a nah page from yesterday and refreshed it, saw the convo and all.

    But let sleeping dogs lay and shit.

    So anyways… the Outlawz “Tupac Back” turned out to be just as annoying as the OG version

  7. Captain Planet Says:

    NWA actually scared the shit outta white people

    ——————–

    I’m not saying we are at our zenith, but are edginess and aggressiveness are part of our core.

    Why are niggas so mad at Drake and skinny jean wearing niggas?

    If Hip-Hop completely loses it core edginess and aggressiveness it will cease to be hip-hop.

    Word. We’ll just keep assuming Boldy Lames and Jon Conner and the rest of the weirdos Ashmi and you keep championing are next up and winning.

    That nigga boldy ain’t even recognized in his own city, like he’s not even above Casket Face, and that nigga is running in fear of his life.

    JihaD

    ^
    Oh now we taking shots?

    *pulls up a chair at the bar*

    Boldy has impressed me in 1 mixtape what its taken Mills to do in a million, and he still hasnt.. Meek is goin nowhere fast, Boldy got 2 posts on Nah..since Meek signed hes had about 30 and still no one checking for him…That tupac back shit? Afeni should send him a cease and desist letter bomb.

    I havent seen Jon Connor since the last Terminator.

    When Boldy’s mom gets home from work she tells him to tell them drive by shooters to get out her living room…what has Meek’s mother ever done?

    ^

    First, what shots? I ain’t lying. Don’t NOBODY know who the fuck Boldy James is right now, b. I ain’t saying that cuz I’m hating– its a FACT. He ain’t on the radio, he’s not on other blogs. don’t nobody drive by playing his shit nor do they discuss his music on twitter.

    FACT.

    Second, I ain’t trying to make you like NO NIGGAS MUSIC. But what your saying is false– Boldy WISHES he had the buzz Meek has right now. Hell, YOU wish Boldy had the buzz Meek has right now, cuz if he did, we wouldn’t have this argument.

    FACT.

    Three, Meek is touring the country right now off Tupac Back (pun intended), and just did a Tupac Birthday concert with Afeni in the building. Boldy was at his moms house rolling a blunt and playing his All Eyez on Me Tape with the scotch tape over the crack in the middle.

    FACT.

    And Meeks mom is out the hood now thanks to her son. She ain’t gotta worry bout niggas running in her crib or driveby shooters. Tell Boldy to get some talent and stop rapping bout dice games and maybe he’ll do the same.

    FACT.

    Isn’t that what niggas are complaining about Drake and skinny jean niggas fucking up the game?

    And Mainstream and Real hip-hop used to be MUCH closer.

    I know Hov was supposed to get Young Chris’s moms out the hood.

    I wonder how that worked out?

  24. el feces loco Says:

    @ Jihad

    SHOTS as in I was talking about Asmi and his blog THEN you came with BOLDY aint this BODLY aint that..I took those as mini shots..since you know Im a Boldy stan..concreature and all that. He’s only been on Nah 2x tho so..I cant see how u say eskay big him up.

    All the other shit about Meek..ok he’s your BOLDY..to me.

    In 1 year we’ll see who has the last laugh..Meek will be back in Philly gettin chicken with saltpeppaketchup and Boldy will be in Hollywood making hits that dont relate to exploiting the names of dead rappers.

    ===========================
    More white people listen to Hip-Hop now then back then and that gun, drug, shoot, stab, kill shit has had it’s run as well. It’s no longer “shocking” or “edgy” to the masses. So to sell now, edgy has been replaced by being easy to relate to. No longer do the gangsters & pimps hold that allure. Today’s fans want someone to relate to.

    LMAO! Who have niggas embraced thats white on a large scale. Niggas talk about who the best is where I’m from all the time and Eminem’s name is rarely brought up. Asher, Bubba Sparxx, yelawolf, and Machine Gun Kelly get not a mention by any of my niggas.

    Can any of this be substantiated though? A nigga can say any number of mixtapes cause nobody’s really keeping count.

    And I can’t see anyone paying Meek 15k a show NOW, and he has a lil fame.

    If he buzz was like that years ago, I don’t see how it didn’t creep up to NY.

    —————————

    You have some valid points.

    And I certainly degree, white people making a larger portion of the audience has changed the art form … for the worse in a lot of people’s opinions.

    I will always prefer to get my music from gangsters and hustlers. The grittiness and struggle come out in the music.

    My point is that this increased white audience you speak off would love to have white artists to look up to.

    But how long will it stay hip-hop? Kreyshawn will be making Justin Beiber type music in a year.

    The reason they came to Hip-Hop wasn’t because ” rhyming ” per se is a easier form of music to sell. It’s because of all the intangibles that go along with hip-hop, hard-gritty beats, hard-gritty topics and attitude.

    It’s been saturated already but my point is that with white people doing it it will cease to be what is was ( See: Rock ‘N Roll )
