whattup snapple
most of my life i've had hiphop around me even when i was too young to understand it
i remember whoodini,fat boys, beastie boys, run dmc, slick rick, big daddy kane, doug e fresh, bdp damn i'm bring back old memories


i think the thing i remember the most about old school hip hop was that no matter what the song was about the melody was always uptempo

started with dre and hammer, went to snoop, dogg pound, then first wu was 'only built for cuban linx' and finally found "it"

I used to be on that DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince back in the day (even did parents just don't understand in a talent show) but I really got into hip hop somewhere around '92. The 1st album I bought was that bacdafucup from Onyx (that was my shit) then Wu, then Gravediggaz (I didn't even know the affiliation back then) then Meth, ODB; man I feel like an old head talking about woodstock and shit when I say "we were all Wu heads back in the day, White, Black, Asian, Latino, Man, Woman. Everyone was on that shit - some of us just never left...

been a hip-hop head since 94. I'm from the Bronx. Many of us who are in our 20s love Wu-Tang cuz we came up when the Wu were everywhere (radio, tv, ect). When hip-hop was pure and it wasn't diluted. It's hard to explain to newer fans but there was a time when Wu-Tang ruled hip-hop.

PEACE.

i remember when i was yung i used to watch Wu tang and b.i.g on t.v. and i used to love all them niggas. (still do) But i consider myself a TRUE head since about a year ago. When i realized what music is good, and what's bullshit. It's sad everybody else can't see that.

damn, ever since i was young, and i don't know at what age, my sister was into hiphop so i remember some videos, for sure i remember she'd call me and my brother whenever Snoop's what's my name video was on, cause we were young and loved how they turned into dogs. i remember that tribe video infront of the universal studios globe thing, but i never got fully into it (I was just watching whatever videos the stations played) until about... crap 97 was when i started. i'm young, but hiphop has always been around me, i never really chose it as my music until my sister played me some DMX, and i was like "yeah! that sounds good!". i chose it over any music, cause i was watching the countdowns which had everything, and made Hiphop it, but Wu-Tang Clan i've always known about, even when I wasn't fully into Hiphop, i can remember knowing about Wu-Tang for a while... at school i asked someone what their favourite band is, they were like "Limp Bizkit", i'm like, nahh, mine is Wu-Tang Clan.

i didn't start to become a serious Wu fanatic til earlier this year when i picked up 36 chambers. i started to become a Hiphop head when my friend lent me Illmatic (Best way to start) and he was like "it's not that good, all the beats are kind of old school), i played that album like 50 times, and begged to keep it longer when i had to give it back to him. true Hiphop really connected to me, and that's what I preach since then.

oh yeah, i'm from Scarborough, Toronto.
