    Exactly my point. And I dont remember one Budden line, apart from the one he recycled on Mood Muzik. I remember whole stanzas from Sean’s ones

  50. Smear Says:

    Imma just go head and drop this again:

    “…they mimic,
    they H-O-V lane it and don’t pen it, the difference: the blue magic aint in it.
    We should form a senate to govern critic opinion,
    I watched them niggas throw away the pendant
    To he who claim to be the heir, how dare, Pusha naysay it…
    them niggas hear me and they mayday it.
    So i could care less if Jay say it, its too political when Jay say it,
    he play the game just instant replay it.
    The BEST DUO EVER i hangman these words together,
    poutin passion into every letter, this my letter to the vetter:
    I masta ace you niggas standin in a master’s place….Fuck out my way!… ”
    ^^Clipse – Big Dreams
    Pusha Ton for the win!

    Son just dismissed dwayne without even mentionin his name….nicest diss of the year…..shame it go over too many heads. cunts think cos Jay’s name mentioned they shots at him????stoopid

    ^Vivid. Yeah, I deal with the cold weather enough in Baltimore so I don’t know how I would feel about it. But I definitely want to check it out. I don’t know what the cost of living is like but I’m trying to think about the future. There aren’t too many places that I would consider raising a family in Amerikkka because gentrification has jacked up prices and pushed many of the Brown people away in areas where there’s little to no commerce.

    ^You talkin’ about “Anchor”. Lol. Yeah, it’s IIGHT. But I could’ve done without it. The “Gianormous” mixtape is solid all the way through. But I agree that Sandman and Ab can’t do it without the VA Boys. But at the same time, they bricked like oven pizza with that last LP effort. They shoulda retained the same formula they was using for the mixtapes. I could see why Sandman was upset with the situation. Hopefully they iron out their differences and come back as a team. They have the best riding music in the world. Word to me and my manz listening to all of their mixtapes on the way to VA to drop off his seed.

    … the brown man gets reasonably fair treatment in Minneapolis … the MAN didnt even kill all the Indians up there, like most Europeans did upon arrival … contrary to Viking mythology, the historically neutral Scandanavian immigrants (Norway, Denmark, Sweden) that make up the majority of the white population im Minnesota, has been the most passive of all the Europen immigrants during and after their arrival/land-jacking … you see more interracial relationships in the upper midwest than anywhere else … Minneapolis has always been very liberal … they recently had a black female mayor for 2 terms, and Jesse The Body Ventura as Governor for godssake … not to mention Denny Green as coach when there were no black coaches in the NFL … Minneapolis is mad progressive …

    ^You talkin’ about “Anchor”. Lol. Yeah, it’s IIGHT. But I could’ve done without it. The “Gianormous” mixtape is solid all the way through. But I agree that Sandman and Ab can’t do it without the VA Boys. But at the same time, they bricked like oven pizza with that last LP effort. They shoulda retained the same formula they was using for the mixtapes. I could see why Sandman was upset with the situation. Hopefully they iron out their differences and come back as a team. They have the best riding music in the world. Word to me and my manz listening to all of their mixtapes on the way to VA to drop off his seed.

    ^^^
    yeah some dodgy shit went on with the production or lack of on that re-up “album” I dunno if Kock to blame.. that Maestro kid said he had heat for the album but koch never came through with the coin. That shit was soso. gimme vol1 or vol2 over that shits anyday.

    … the brown man gets reasonably fair treatment in Minneapolis … the MAN didnt even kill all the Indians up there, like most Europeans did upon arrival … contrary to Viking mythology, the historically neutral Scandanavian immigrants (Norway, Denmark, Sweden) that make up the majority of the white population im Minnesota, has been the most passive of all the Europen immigrants during and after their arrival/land-jacking … you see more interracial relationships in the upper midwest than anywhere else … Minneapolis has always been very liberal … they recently had a black female mayor for 2 terms, and Jesse The Body Ventura as Governor for godssake … not to mention Denny Green as coach when there were no black coaches in the NFL … Minneapolis is mad progressive …

    ^You make it seem like it’s pound for pound the best place in America. I’m not so concerned with so much living somewhere “cheap” as I am progressive. Many times you pay for what you get, even though Babylon (NYC) is crucially overpriced for all of the progression it has acclaimed. Cali is a no-no, they stuck in the 70′s. I don’t know much about the Chi besides gangs (madd stereotypical). ATL overpopulated, and GA is extra racist in general. Florida, is actually a prospect but I don’t know enough about it to confirm. I know it’s some bammafications that could prevent me from living there. And all other states below the Mason-Dixon just has no appeal to me.

    You make a trip to MinneSnowta you can experience some quality underground hiphop. Minneapolis has multiple locations where shows go down, uptown minne is swanky types of clubs and downtown is more of a warehouse district. Minnesota has been cultivating HipHop and R&B since the mid to late 80′s. I suggest anything by Rhymesayers Entertainment but also some other groups like Guardians of Balance or Just.Live or Meta or Tek.
