Just feel that queens gots it’s own lingo. When a queens MC spits you know he’s from queens, Nas father’d the flow. 50 had it at first (c) un-released columbia album, but 50 gargabe now. It’s like that ghetto wisdom language.
“I’d open every cell in addica, sent’em to africa”
Wikipedia says that Nas was born on Long Island and spent the first few years of his life in Crown Heights before moving to Queensbridge. He lived in Crown Heights til he was 4. Not sure how accurate that is cuz on wikipedia you can post whatever on it I think.
“Hell Rell, born Durell Mohammad, in The Bronx, New York City, New York, USA on 5 May 1980, is a member of the rap group The Diplomats and is signed to the group’s record label….. He is occasionally confused as the son of Jo Marie Payton.”
iâ€™m talking rap wise of course. in any other comparison Queens is after every other borough except SI. ”
SI is the asshole of NY. I hate that borough with a passion. And i have to sit next to a fuckin gotti wannabe blastin some dance music when i’m sittin in traffic cause they decided that 4pm on a friday is a good time to do construction. in conclusion, fuck SI.
The lyrics were intricate and the wordplay was magnificent. The video was crap. It’s not his fault though. I just can’t believe a major label hasn’t scooped this lyrical nigga up yet. I mean damn, the lil homie(Nas) aint even try to help his partna out.
the census is in. Lupe’s album is certified not hip hop. it’s some weird rock/R&B/hippie/fake rap shit. what a waste of a disc, there’s maybe 6 good tracks. fucking Pharrell and his organ-grinder “I Gotcha” beat. Lupe wishes he was a gangsta tho, it’s kinda funny.
Damn, I’m over here sittin’ back, relaxin, and wishin there were some contacts to catch with that one. 375 dollar video budget, but nice flow with a classic beat; reminds me of some shit out back when I was in like 7th grade, 95ish. When does his album drop?
In fact, remember how New York Undercover used to always open? They would play a hot track the first couple of minutes while they were setting up the storyline for the episode. I could see this track playing (referring back to how 95ish the beat sounds) while someone was being murdered; then cutting to Torres and Williams running when it cut to opening credits. Just me though…
i’ve loved this guys flow sine the mid 90′s and PHIL your dead right that this could be played over NY undercover’s intro..its just got the mid 90′s feel that made me fall in love with nyc rap….i still cant figure up why they blew up Dt. Torres whip with him in it, malik yoba and that fly butta rican couldnt carry the show by themselvs…
i also cant understand why AZ isnt regarded or as heralded as a Nas or JayZ….
iLL Change : Its all a matter of personal opinion but I think Pusha T and Malice flow savage, them nigs can ride a beat. To me their new joint, if it sounds anything like their first one will be tight.
if it sounds anything like their first album, it will garbage. the Neptunes dont make any good beats. at least not lately. it will be mediocre from the 3 tracks i heard so far. and you cant make an East Coast classic like they said they would, when you’re from VIRGINIA. they’re not built like that. especially not them + Pharrell. when you have songs named “What It Do” and “Trill”, there is nothing East Coast about your album.

â€œPressureâ€ is the only good track on Lupe Wannabe-Gangstaâ€™s album, and thatâ€™s cuz it actually features a RAPPER.
^^^LOL. Before you said there was 6 good tracks on the album and now you’re saying only “Pressure” is good. And what part of Lupe is a wannabe-gangsta??? There’s a lot of wannabe-gangsta’s out there, but Lupe is definitely not one of them.
Ill : Shit, I don’t know son, the Neptunes beats on their first album was alright to me cos it was still pretty new. Shortly after that every fuckin beat they produced sounded the same but at the beginning when they first started knockin out beats, I liked that whole minimalist, heavy base shit. But puttin that aside I think the Clipse flow sick. But yeah you right about havin a song called ‘Trill’ in your album and claimin you reppin East Coast hip-hop, it don;t add up. But fuck it, as long as the niggas bring it then I’m good, fuck what the song’s on the album are called.
>> And what part of Lupe is a wannabe-gangsta??? Thereâ€™s a lot of wannabe-gangstaâ€™s out there, but Lupe is definitely not one of them.
he called Pharrell “Felonious P” on I Gotcha. Pharrell has never had a felony, but he wishes he runs with thugs. then he gets Jay-Z to talk some violent shit on “Pressure.” he reps Chicago like he gang banged or some shit. you can just tell he wishes he was a G, but he went to prep school in vermont instead and now he’s just bitter. i would love it if Raekwon called him out on that “either they pimps, or they macks, or they mobsters” line. just totally demolish Rollerblades Fiasco.
he called Pharrell â€œFelonious Pâ€ on I Gotcha. Pharrell has never had a felony, but he wishes he runs with thugs. then he gets Jay-Z to talk some violent shit on â€œPressure.â€
yo, I think you’re taking his lyrics too seriously pa. I don’t think he meant that Pharrell is a felon literally. Maybe a felon on the beats, but not in a literal sense. Lupe knows Pharrell is as soft as his ice creams. On Pressure it was Jay talking some violent shit, not Lupe. He was letting Jay do Jay. On â€œeither they pimps, or they macks, or they mobstersâ€ line he never referred to himself as being a pimp, mack or mobster. If he did, then there would be a problem.
i dont see why the Clipse are still hangin’ with Felonious P. he’s a faggot, they know it, they just want some beats, and if they leave Star Trak their album will have the same release date as The Growth. if it was DJ Premier, i could see why they would hang around, but Pharrell and Hugo… garbage.
he’s also mad boring to listen to. “flagrantly fragrant… something something… Pepe Le Pew spray… something something…” he doesnt even make sense, he’s talking about how he smells for the first 8 bars. he wants to be a gangster and a prophet at the same time, but he also wants to do BMX biking and play nintendo and learn kung-fu. he’s like 12 people combined into one body. he has a decent flow, but no specific bars will catch my ear if i heard the song on the radio. playin’ Pong in his fucking muzik video, how corny can you get? someone needs to battle this fool and serve him. AZ could wipe the floor with Xtreme Sports Fiasco.
how come Jay never pays his respects to Big L. i’m listenin’ to that `95 stretch armstrong freestyle wit L and Jigga, and Big L murders him, but besides that, he put him on. it’s always “R.I.P. Big” and steal a few of his lines, but never anything about Big L. hopefully that album with the awful name will be decent.
LMAO!!! Yeah you right man, Redman ain’t gettin no love at Def Jam, I don’t know what the fuck is up there, maybe Hov got a big say on what goes on maybe he has’nt but either way Redman is gettin done dirty. As is Buddens as is Meth. Meth’s joint is actually pretty decent, its a fuckin shame ain’t no one at Def Jam give 2 shits about hence no fuckin promotion.
Aight, I just finished the second to last episode of season 2 of the wire, and i gotta say fuck you to biggs and aberrant. that shit was the biggest waste of time. i had to watch a bunch of bullshit about union workin pollacks. there was maybe a total of an hour spent on Avon’s shit. who the fuck cares about that bullshit. they didn’t even go into drugs that much at all.
*wants his bandwith back for downloading that garbage*
yo im having some trouble viewing that bill clinton video someone posted up. that and everyother video on youtube.
damn i have no idea what happened, mainly cuz of my midterms, but it musta been ether cuz FOX removed every fucking video on youtube. like minimum 20 of them that i clicked on are not functioning anymore. i found one that might work, but wtv that might get cut in the middle
where the fuck are the wire fans. i demand an explanation of how you mafuckas think this season is worth watchin. i would rather watch curtis jackson act out shakespeare instead of watching this garbage. one fuckin episode of csi stretched into 12 hours. fuckin bullshit.
I just came back from the listening party at NewJune in NYC. I cannot lie that album got some bangers are there. Look out for that Christina Aguileria collabo and the MJB collabo…You heard it here first
dammit, i really need a wire fan on here. i got some questions that need answerin. i swear nation, they made it all about shit that doesn’t matter, and didn’t address any of the good stuff. how do you shift the focus of a show to how intricate the drug game in baltimore is to how a bunch of sloppy pollacks steal from ships. i’m so fuckin pissed.
wtf jay. wtf with the whole second season? they didn’t address what happened between omar and the nation of islam dude. they didn’t address all the shit between stringer and avon. all they did was talk about that stupid fuckin pier. what the fuck? big waste of fuckin time.

alot of people said that about season 2…yea it was kinda slow with every one gone, but what 2 lacks 3 makes up for
“i dont want to spoil 3 for you but your questions are answered”
“u have to take season 2 with a â€œgrain of saltâ€â€¦you can see how middle class economic issues effect every within the city”
i guess i see what you mean. they did set up a ridiculous story for next season. there could be alot of wars and alot of people dyin that you wouldn’t expect. i’ll give it another shot. but straight up, for anyone else who will watch this. just watch the last 4 episodes of season 2 and save yourself a headache.
man, if your looking just to see people shot ever episode then the wire might not be for you, but if your lookin for an complex, developed, indepth, unglamourous life in an urban american city than this is the best thing out there
“ur the kinda of person that reads the last chapter of a novel uh”
not at all. but really, 70% of that season is irrelevant to the story that i was expecting. they didn’t get into anything. just showed characters. i was mad cause it dealt with shit that had nothing to do with anything. just felt like a big waste of time. i’m sure it will be worth the set up for the next season, but i could remove that shit from my memory now and it wouldn’t make a difference for the future of the show.
no the dock shot for the most part wont be relevant for the season 3 but your missing the point… its not about drugs or cops its about life in baltimore…you get to see how the drugs get here in the first place and who getting rich off that shit
“man, if your looking just to see people shot ever episode then the wire might not be for you, but if your lookin for an complex, developed, indepth, unglamourous life in an urban american city than this is the best thing out there”
see that’s what i loved about the show jay. they got into how genius the minds are behind all the drugs and violence. it’s amazing the shit they think of. all the way down to the hotshots that hit the bin in season 2. i’m so impressed with that shit. but there was nothing interesting to the docks. it was a bunch of middleclass pollacks stealing shit. nothing complex or intricate. just as simple as a couple of idiots robbing shit, and the fuzz going through hell to catch em. they did touch on where all the shit comes from, but didn’t really go into that. they stayed secretive about the greek and gave us barely any info. just alot of shit to watch without any of the answers.

i guess that’s where i made my mistake. i thought it was about avon’s crew and the cops chasin them. that’s where the story was for me. that’s what last season was about. i’m not lookin to this show for an inside view on all aspects on baltimore. i’m lookin for just one, and i got barely anything of it through 12 hours of shows. i mean to each his own, but that shit was retarded. they could’ve made 3 episodes on that and been done with it. the worst part is they didn’t even make those characters interesting. it was fucked up when wallace got clipped, but when sabatka got killed, it was whatever. just feel robbed for my time.
yea its fucked up about wallace and how he couldnt esacpe the game, but if u were the head of the union would u be doing that foul shit too? and yea they stretch shit out too much sometimes but its.all.we.got

I think that entire season went over your head. Not only was it about how serious drugs get into the country, it was also equally about the current state of unions and the blue-collar worker in the country. I mean the very last scene of season 2, showing the aftermath to all the dock workers was pretty amazing and “knock you over the head” blunt about what the season was about. And those guys weren’t middle class.
meth is on sony now so why in the hell would def jam be promoting him. meth’s album like all of his other albums is wack and musically dated. and even with promotion do you really think budden would sell ? he’s on the same level as lloyd banks and even his garbage album got pushed back. now redman may deserve another shot. and you guys seem to forget the roots just came out. how many of ya’ll rap purists went and copped that defjam album ? lastly look at dmx’s sales and how garbage that album is. hov should get some credit in not putting that coaster out.
