    Art imitates life, right?

    So, when you focus just on partying, fucking, drug intake/distribution, flaunting what you have, etc, and lose the routes and devotion to studying and building, your life becomes shit because you took the wrong path.

    this is what happened to rap. We kept up with the balling, and sex, and drugs, and spending and all that other shit when we were supposed to be saving, and learning, and building and trying to achieve something.

    Is it “Oochie Wally Wally” or is it “One Mic”?
    Is it “Black Girl Lost” or shorty owe you for ice?

    Niggas like and keep promoting Ross and these other drug affiliated and wannabe rappers and now niggas wanna complain. This is what the labels and financial investors seem the popular interest was focused and that’s where they put the dollars at.

    Conscious music is seriously becoming something of the past. And honestly, we did that to hip hop. Don’t blame no one else. Niggas was/is rooting for that destruction. And so it shall be, unfortunately.

    ^ you’re acting like it must be one or the other. Groups like Wu gave you both. In the subtext were rules on how to better yourself. Same with nas. He gave you tales of drug barons and czars but also let you know where you’ll likely end up aspiring for that.

    So yea while I can appreciate the drug fueled parables off Rozay. Nothing saying he couldnt touch on something a little more real and get the same effect.

    Balance kid. Balance

    ^^

    art and life are one in the same. and they both require balance.

    an artist’s dedication to technique and craft is just as important as living his life so that he may be inspired.

    rap’s problem is that after all these years, it still has a hard time doing both.

    cOLD,

    I see what you are saying and I’ve already touched on that b. Balance is needed. The human condition is a paradox amongst itself so, there is a need for both. A market in art should be able to support both franchises. But..BUT, when you have people that BEEN wanting your destruction as the chief financier of what’s to be put out as music, and he sees that destruction is winning, the other market is silenced.

    I know I can’t be the only person to understand this logic. What I’m trying to say (and maybe incorrectly) is that you can’t expect for a balance with white america when it comes to our own nourishment and/or benefit b. And in rap, we let them become the financiers of trends and gave them the choice because of what we craved more at that time: destruction. So now, it’s going to be the popular trend. Not to say that the market can’t be turned back around. It’ll take some time though.

  14. cOLD Says:

    Sheek louch coincidently enough has a song “don’t be them” which is a scaving reality check but still gully as anything I’ve heard. So it ain’t like you have to compromise your sound, it just the platform in which you chose to deliver. Niggas want gully. We tell them stay in school in your gulliest of flows.

    Unless, there is a new emergence of a Wu, a Blackstar, or PE, it’s only gonna get worse before it gets better.

    ^for black wall st weed carriers, and ymcmb benchwarmers why yes, yes it will

  18. S.I.C.K Says:

    Balance will never occur.Rap now is supply and demand. The desire to eat chumps creative diversity. Just revisit the golden era because it’s gone.

  19. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Even the way we approach this shit now is designed for ridicule b.

    If I approach slim on some “Brown Skinned Lady” shit, I’m a simp.

    If I approach slim on some “All The Way Turnt Up” shit, I’m legit.

    I’m too young to be feeling this old.

  20. Bones Jackson Says:

    You might not have conscience rap because maybe people’s lives really aren’t as bad as they used to be and people are growing up in different times. or maybe niggas really just don’t give a fuck and would rather party than talk about their problems.

  21. hl Says:

    Cosign nahggas is old.

  22. JDS of the Cobra Kai Dojo Says:

    also… those who lead our culture tend to be creatively bankrupt. they don’t even try to aim for balance.

    niggas got it wrong. keepin’ it real ain’t about having been out in the street. it’s about having some sort of world view or insightful perspective behind the glamour.

  23. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Not true though. Nas came with Distant Relatives (dope shit to me still) and it was overlooked and downplayed. Same with Untitled.

    cole dropped Cole World. And even though it peeked at Number 1, it was still played down.

    the Roots drop all the time without anyone ever saying shit. But let Waka or some frail shit drop. It’s a wrap. Market is flooded.

    ^ we are smarter there are ways to get it off coded. We speak a language through there years of marketing college class’s they’ve yet to overstand

    How you thinkk LL got that FUBU commercial off within a GAP spot.
    We masterminds b. it can be done

    scenario:

    today at approximately 3:10 im sitting at the light 72nd and 5th in central park.
    i hear what sounded like 15′s rumbling the ground beneath my car.

    in a rearview i see a 2012 jeep commander, its pulls up beside me.

    white kid number (wearing prep school attire): “no i cant get in im only 17, i’ll take our jet then and meet you guys tomorrow”

    white kid driver (also prep school attire): “blah blah something my dick she call it richard” (reciting lil wayne word for word)

    passenger ends convo and joins in lyrics, im now visible to them…

    white kid (looks at me with a sadly executed attempt at swag) “dope right?” then winks and the car speeds off.

    ….i don’t know how to feel, so many emotions surged through as my life and struggles flashed before my eyes (nhjic) …then the most powerful NOTHINGNESS just came over me as i was confused on my stance as what the fuck just happened.
