    I was wild loud & obnoxious at his live show screaming Gangsta Gibbs every time there was a lull in the action.

    Gibbs dapped me & was like “I fuck wit you nigga”

    I was sauced so I didn’t mind when I yelled out “Do Crushing Feelings” and he was like “Aight” & did the first two bars before yelling “Fuck that shit! I got some new shit for y’all”.

    His own albums are a mixed bag but focused projects like this are where he shines.

    Good studio sessions are organized AND include that, word to me and Speez knocking out the Lifestyle Music EP.

    And its harder than it looks when you let the bullshit take over and nothing gets done.

    A good focused session with a clear plan on what you plan on accomplishing>>>> just “going to the Stu” with a bunch of niggas ,liquor, and weed.

    Theres one thing about getting the job done, and theres another talking about both the LEVEL and AMOUNT of work you get done.

    Because niggas have this weird ass attraction to that coon ass nigga. He ain’t wack, but he wasn’t no amazing rapper.

    But again, what works for you may not work for the next cat.

    Some dudes feed off the energy in the studio or need the Henny flowin to get their thing goin. Alot of the guys in there are from XXL, LRG or Karma Loop and the vibe seems pretty tame.

    ^

    True that. Its all personal preference at the end of the day.

    But if you need other niggas around you to get excited to do something you love, then you don’t really love it or want to do it anyway. Same thing with having to be liqoured or highed up.

    As much shit as they give Curtis about limited content, Tupac was a THOUSAND times worse.
    ^^^

    Yo Shellz, you’re my GBM brother from another…but you’re dead wrong b.

    50 has never made anything like Brenda’s Got A Baby or Dear Mama or White Man’s World.

    I don’t think he could if he wanted to & if he did, who’d believe him?

    Pac’s versatility is one of his strengths.

    ^

    But I DON’T want to hear no shit like from that nigga– its not why I listen to Curtis.

    But that nigga captured the same feeling of paranoia I felt after I got shot on “Many Men” –> thats MY life, not wondering if Brenda had her baby.

    by your logic Pac is somehow a worse rapper because some fatherless idiots worship him

    ^

    No.

    By MY logic Pac is an average rapper who made a living off controversy, just like Curtis.

    Difference is, I could give a fuck about a Tupac.

    Thats it.

    Its just funny how quick people are to try to defend him talking bout his “impact” and “influence” like that nigga was Huey or Martin or El-Haj Malik Shabbaz.

    That nigga was rapper. and an Actor. A better actor than rapper.

He never really acted on that shit… so it was all just lip work. Which is fine. Most rappers do that. but when people start actin like pac is a black revolutionary they are dead wrong.

    Even though he’s limited he can be effective on the mic/court and had what some consider a classic ( MVP/Finals ) appearance

    But they are more know for what they represented … the attitude, the swagger, the style, braggodocio …

    They both made black people proud to be hood and not give a fuck because they were doing their Goddamn thing and Getting Money

    Tupac is more than getting killed, otherwise why are we not talking about Stack Bundles.

    You have to have a resume to back it up.

    Pac was a polarizing figure LONG before he got bodied.
