The Hip Hop Game
most of us do not know the meaning of real hip hop you should try to listen to the greats like big pun biggie tupac and figure out what real hip hop is.most modern day rappers just spit shit on their tracks e.g pall wall,young bloodz,dem franchise boyz these busats should be wiped out.guys like immortal technique,method man,the game jin do not get as much credit as they deserve!
Don't forget Bizzy and Nas..oh and Cassidy, just because he chases liquor with robotussin(which if you've ever tried tastes 100x worse)
Dear Mathias 77
thank you for your post, i see you are new here...
So what makes you a consour of hiphop then???
I have listened to biggie smalls, 2 pac and they aint all that..... perhaps you should try listening to KRS-One/BDP, Eric B and Rakim, Ultramagnetic Mc's Slick Rick, EPMD to start with then come back to me about hip hop greats.
hat's missing is very simple... creativity and originality. every artist up through 95 has their own angle. very seldom were two artists the same. now they're almost completely interchangable and therefore useless. god forbid someone actually have the balls to talk about anything else but their jewelery or the dimensions of their rims.
what is hip hop missing? it's missing NOT being plastered all over every single product, radio station, and tv show.
my only fear of death ...is reincarnation
i use my last breath - to reach the whole nation
how can they call me murderer from my spoken word?
this composition be my prophecy i hope it's heard
You're really Tupac and you never died, yes?
You want lyrics
Just check out these rakim lyrics
I came in the door, i said it before
I never let the mic magnatize me no more
But it's biting me, fighting me, inviting me to rhyme
I can't hold it back, I'm looking for the line,
Taking off my coat, clearing my throat
My rhyme will be kicking it until I hit my last note
My mind'll range to find all kinds of ideas
Self-esteem makes it seem like a thought took years to build
But still say a rhyme after the next one
Prepared, never scared, I'll just bless one
And you know that I'm the soloist
So Eric B, make 'em clap to this
2pac aint nothing on rakim
The true troubadour of rap:
Yo VIP let's kick it
Ice ice baby (x2)
All right stop collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly when I play a dope melody
Anything less than the best is a felony
Love it or leave it you better gain weight
You better hit bull's eye the kid don't play
If there was a problem yo I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it
Vanilla Ice makes sex look like church!
Prince james thank you for gracing us with the lyrics of the vanilla man
Yea were is Rakim now>? he can barly sell a show out. SOme fans might call him god however 2pac is the truth.
We probably in Hell already, our dumb asses not knowin
Everybody kissin ass to go to heaven ain't goin
Put my soul on it, I'm fightin devil niggaz daily
Plus the media be crucifying brothers severly
Tell me I ain't God's son, nigga moma a virgin
We got addicted had to leave the burbs, back in the ghetto
doin wild shit, lookin at the sun don't pay
Criminal mind all the time, wait for Judgment Day
They say Moses split the Red Sea
I split the blunt and rolled the fat one, I'm deadly -- Babylon beware
Comin from the Pharoahe's kids, retaliation
Makin legends off the shit we did, still bullshittin
Niggaz in Jerusalem, waitin for signs
God promised, she's just takin her time, haha
Living by the Nile while the water flows
I'm contemplating plots wondering which door to go
Brothas getting shot, comin back resurrected
It's just that raw shit, nigga check it (that raw shit)
And I remember what my papa told me
Remember what my papa told me, blasphemy
i want rakim to rap something like this..
who watched the dave chapelle episode.
"i wrote this song a long time ago. in 94"
that was hilarious, makavelli.
i bet he probably ain't dead.
Thank you fpr this
why??? this is poor in comparison to the mastery of rakim
And why does Rakim need to sell out crowds and albums now,, he;'s been there done that....
Along with BDK??, BDP/Krs 1, Slick Rick and PE, he is one of the most sampled MC's ever, says somthing that doesn't it??
Why's everyone so interested in the past? Can anyone tell me who wrote this:
"Hov don't really respect you, get in ya place
if Big was alive he'da probably spit in ya face
Nas been doin' just fine without you
and pac probably woulda made an album about you
so i guess that just leaves me here to get rid of you
and Rakim an 'em they don't even consider you "
^Jadakiss i think, he's dissing 50 cent
Good job, lol.
