    what’s all this talk about “KRS is corny”?

    so being positive is being corny now? teaching youts about positivity and knowledge of self is corny now? what, because he doesn’t have lyrics about “toting a strap” or “making it rain on hoes, that’s corny?

    if the general consensus is that “KRS is corny” then hip hop lost.

    to me, the majority of hip hop artists right now are corny as fuck, recycling the same gangsta cliches every goddamn time…now THAT’S corny.

    WRONG…..

    What fans you always here calling legends “oldheads that are garbage because they “old”

    What fans you hear saying “man he too old to rap, man he was hot back in the stone age, man fuck him I never heard nothing he put out, man he ain’t on a track with weezy so he wack, man he as old as a dinosaur so he gets no respect”

    … but again Mayor … its more than just LP’s … smh … FatJoe is a HipHop Icon … period … he is recognizable ON SIGHT all over the world … he gets movies, acting appearances, ringtone deals since 199- … i agree that since LOYALTY (which came AFTER Don Cart) he hasnt had a great lp … but since 1993, he has been able to market himself successfully all over the world … FOR 15 years … regardless of ghostwriters or any other external assistance, who else can boast of that type of longevity, in a realm of 1 and 2 hit wonders …

    … we’re at the point where we’re almost agreeing but still debating … lmao …

    ^I think the last sentence might be the most profound and relevant of all because now you’re talkin’ about stuff outside of music. When mentioning the embodiment of what it is to be a legend MUSICALLY, then Fat Joe is NOT a legend. He has released 8 albums (10 if you include the group albums) and only 3 of his solo shits can even be held next to who we call legends in the game MUSICALLY:

    JayZ… Nas… LL… Ghostface… Redman… AZ…

    Just to name a few. Many people learn to stay consistently good without the other oulets of media attention and marketing schemes. For that reason, I will NOT make an exception for Fat Joseph.

    Hip Hop fans are pathetic. they get mad when an actual great MC like Hov is still rapping. Who cares how old he is? Dude is still making good music. Be lucky and thankful you get a chance to listen to it.

    LL– fuck a journalist, im not one. this is ho wi feel. as a fan, as someone who has supported him from day one of him saying fuck thew man, to starting a business, gto saying went on mtv with durags,m ade them love you, etc etc.. its tough for me to swallow him now becoming “the man”

    i suported him, was a fan because he made dope music and i believed he stood for something. i dont think he stands for anything anymore. and his music.. its a shadow of what ot once was, but ill always be an early hov stan.

    hey E…hes no longer repping for the people, the struggle the everyday hustle. i dug that. he now represents corporate america, globalization, part of me can see how thats a natural evolution once you reach a certain level, but theres a value shift when a person chooses to embrace that, its that i cant really reconcile with…………but on another deeper level, im no longer a fan of what jay represents

    ^^^i also dont understand why folks say that..green is that how U REALLY feel..or is that the cookie-cutter, journalist stance? ……..what exactly is jay supposed to represent? its not like he lives in the projects of BK or harlem or even camden…I dont get it…..he’s not living or around that type of environment anymore, what else do u expect him to talk about other than what he has been already ie.. im rich, business man etcc.

    ^Exactly. When a ninja run outta shit to say, he probably should just put down the mic (c) Black Album

    That was the perfect fade-away to a flawless career. The he came back… like Jordan… on the Wizards.

  200. SpotOn Says:

    Pac imo is still the blueprint for what a great MC should be.

    ^^^Not to knock your opinion, but I would say a great artist, but not a great MC. Dude was weak as an MC, but he was good at putting emotion in his verses. He only had like 1 flow.

  201. D. Billz Says:

    I mean… wasn’t that the point of the song “What More Can I Say?”… from the Black Album?

    Clark Kent fell in love and Superman died

  202. Paperstacker Says:

    Pac imo is still the blueprint for what a great MC should be.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    yeah but not quite.. All he lacked was lyricism and wordplay thats why Ill always think Hov and Nas deserve the GOAT title more than Pac. But fuck it, there are numerous GOATS, why there gotta be one GOAT? IN the NBA we consider Jordan, Magic, Bird, Dr. J, etc as The greatest of all time. In R&B there are a few artists considered among the greatest of all time, you never hear a GOAT of R&B, or a GOAT of Rock, it’s always a group of elite artists that are GOATS in those genres. I never really thought about it like this but this GOAT shit is always being talked abotu in hip hop. Cause of all the different opinions, likes/dislikes, etc there can’t be one goat.

  203. green eyes Says:

    i could give a fuck how old a rapper is, if you are making dope music i want to hear, i’ll listen, fuck age.

    if you arent saying anything i want to hear, im done.. simple as that. you could be 12, 22 or 202, if your shit is wack its wack.

    i never said i wasnt riding for jay anymore cause hes too old.. foh thats some playground bullshit.

    but cosign billz…. its always better to retire on top, leave them wanting more than to come back and taint a legacy. word to MJ

    yeah but only the fans can decide that

    i think a lot of people are convinced the baton already passed

    and then of course you got the younger fans coming up who never thought jay was the GOAT

    rakim was once the undisputed GOAT but now nobody thinks that

    things change and you don’t even notice

    it’s like a recession

    you don’t know it’s happening while it’s happening, but you can look back and say…yup, that was the changing of the guard

    hov stans still think he’s the greatest

    what they don’t realize is that shit is changing all around them and there are already people who gave that crown to somebody else

    now pardon me while i play b.o.b. feat. amy whinehouse “grip your body” again…

    Yes i fully agree that 2Pac was average when it came to lyricism….but he is the blueprint to me for what an MC can accomplish musically. Dude touched the globe profoundly from slums in India to 5 star suites in Paris.

    but there’s no MC trying to aggresively take Jay’s spot. Weezy is trying right now…but he is yet to demonstrate that he can handle that crown.

    We need an MC who can continually smash the game and take way attention frm Hov…coz Jay aint about to give nayone that lane…or @ least his fans arent.
