I shouldn’t have to say that but people (young and old) are afraid of criticism. This dude is really wack to me. Why does he exist in the rap game the way he does? I’ve been trying to understand for a long time. Granted, I can name a few rappers that are far worst than him. He urkes me for some odd reason. He is the WTF at the dinner table. Don’t eat before you say grace!
The Revolution will be televised….again. You may not like him for one reason or another, but you have to admit…this is exciting news for music fans. The return of “Music Television”. Music programming delivered because it’s hot…not because it’s marketing campaign says so. Or so that’s what the sales pitch is to potential viewers.

This is not the way you want them to discover that you’re still out there doing your thing. I was a fan, and somewhere down the line it turn into “nonsense”.
I want to take the time out to speak to those dudes that love to debate. I know dudes that have very different taste from mine when… Read more “THE DIFFERENCE (shots fired!)”
Review of the debut Slaughterhouse album….
Every now and again I like to shine a light on some emcees out there doing big things. No he doesn’t have a diss record, no he’s not linked to the “whatever the f@ck hot crew of the moment”, and no I don’t owe him money. This is pure respect for a fellow emcee. Kel Spencer is that dude!
Word?! Really?! My reaction isn’t to the fact that Krs One and Buckshot (Black Moon) are doing an album together, it’s the fact that 50 Cent might be on the project?! Now that’s a good look!
A lot of people like to say that kats like Lil Wayne are the future of hip-hop. I’m not sure about that but I know there are a couple of dudes out there that keep me hopeful…
