    oh and as far as a God? Iuno, there could be something up there. But if there is, and hes not shakin his fuckin head at the bullshit that we’ve come up with to explain his existance, then I dont even know if I want to kick it with him.

    ^^^^^^^^
    You gotta be white. Black ppl fear God like he’s pops leather belt. To this day i’ve yet to hear a negro utter the words “Oh my %ucking God”, or “Jesus *ucking Christ”. White ppl say that shit 500 times a day like its nothin. See there….i couldn’t even type that shit.

    Well Chris, actually no. You see, Nah is a collection of vile, hateful mother fuckers hailing from all corners of the earth. Basically, no matter what rapper gets a post, we have a minimum of 3-5 commentors who hate his\her fucking guts. We have created an impenetrable shield of hatred.

    We basically form like Voltron, with Wale being Megatron

    its simple… i never liked listening to MCs with southern accents… it just doesnt sound good to me… at all…

    IMO the best southern MCs rap like northerners…

    JayE
    Pusha & Malice
    Phonte & Pooh

    if i wanna hear southern accents in my music ill listen to Muddy Waters and BBKing…

    you know what, though? Now that Em is off the drugs, I think he’s about to be crazy with this next album. I haven’t had an Em album since probably the 2nd one, but i think he’s about to be back.

    if that aint the most stereotypical bullshit analyzation of southern rap then i dont know what is. True, thats what the MAINSTREAM southern rap mostly gives you, but thats not all we got 2 offer. A good example would be Scarface’s group, The Product. Album is called One Hunnid. Take a listen

    he’s white though…

    white rappers get a pass and get overrated for everything… you aint know?…

    and in reality, i dont like him as much as yall think… he’s just IMO the best white rapper right now…

    which makes him about top 30 overall …

    on the religion thing? Nah. I mean, live and let live, to each his own. Not that I don’t care about your spiritual well being, because I do, deeply. But I also realize that it’s something every man has to go through for himself, you know? And I used to read philosophers who either tried to prove or disprove God’s existence, from Descartes to Aquinas and everyone in between. And I came to understand that no one will ever be able to prove God’s existence, because God requires faith, but faith doesn’t always require “proof,” if that makes sense, although you do get some confirmation as you go along.

    It’s kind of like when you hear an incredibly dope album, and you’re talking to a friend that hasn’t heard it yet. And they’re like, naw, I don’t feel that kind of music off GP, I’m not trying to listen to it. But you know that if they would just hear it and give it a chance, it would rock their world and change their lives forever…change the way they saw music, make them happier in general, just make everything better from then on out. But if they don’t listen to it, it doesn’t make the album any less dope, it just means that you’ll be at a dope concert having a great time but just wishing your homie was there to see it, and feeling bad for him that he’s missing out on the experience.

  72. JDS just looks at her, looks at her... Says:

    I’m much more in tune with Existentialism.

    My position is, if God does exist [which I don't believe there is some supreme being] his existence is not my concern. Why sit and try to connect with something I don’t know and can’t fathom?

    I prefer to make connections with the people who are right in front of me. I like getting to know people from different walks of life. Its just like, i don’t have to ask “What would Jesus do?” when i can walk up and ask “What would YOU do?”
