I think chingy fucked himself in the ass though. Cuz now he's off DTP (DTP was one of tha major reasons he blew up so fast). So now he's started his own record label with a group of his hometown nobodies. he's done.

Does it really fucking matter if his whack ass went platinum? Going platinum doesn't mean shit, doesn't mean anything at all. He's a fucking faggot. Wow, don't tell me you're a fan of his cuz I will slap you for that shit. Doesn't matter how many units you move, doesn't matter how many people listen to you. What matters is WHO is listening to you and the type of music you put out. Only junior high school kids are listening to him right now, the fucking sad thing is that they think he's an emcee, and a superb lyricist. God...we fucking gotta teach the seeds. This is why we have to convert people to the sound of the underground/old skool/90's era of Hip-Hop.

that's a lot of "wisdom" for somebody that's only 17 years old.

FYI, i listen to Chingy...and I'm not a junior high school kid. I just happen to enjoy all types of music and i'm not narrowminded and biased.

I'm all for a variety of good music, but I'm about a variety of GOOD music with heart and soul too it, not some manufactured pretty boy label pawn who makes garbage

The Chingys of the world are why the wu lost relevance in the rap world, all kids care about anymore is platinum and catchy hooks

Don't be angry because I'm right and I'm 17. I probably know more about music than you do. Wait, I DO know more about music than you do. Age doesn't mean shit. There's a good amount of young gods out there that like good music. Chingy and your Nelly...thats not good music. Show me what makes Chingy so ill. What hot line did he drop? Bet you my left nut you can't find one.

I never said Chingy was "good". He's not a good lyricist IMO. Why I listen to him is because I like his voice and he has good beats. When approaching that "type" of music, it's important not to expect thoughtful lyrics...but rather entertaining music that you can nod your head to. That's what Chingy does for me exactly. You may say i'm wrong...but Chingy has platinum records to back my statement up. Deal with it.

I never said i was "angry" or acted like it. You pulled that right out of your ass young one. I thought it was funny that you were saying we need to "educate the seeds" or whatever (i'm not going to backtrack and actually quote you) when you yourself are only 17 years old. YOU are still a "seed"...or whatever the hip lingo is today.

Chingy and Nelly CAN be "good" music. It's all a reflection of opinion. If "good" to me means catchy and sounds good on my ears, then why worry about lyrical skills? Not that that's my opinion in full...but to a certain degree that can be translated into many people's opinions.

There's some very famous songs outside of hip hop (i'm talking "rock" if you can follow me still) that didn't have much of a point, but captured america by storm.

FYI, i don't "like" nelly. I do like chingy's cds however. You pulled the Nelly comment out of your ass like 95% of your "quotes" on this board.

Take a look at my registration date. I'm not here to bitch at you guys...i'm here because i love wu tang. they are my favorite group of all time. I also like a lot of "underground" artists like hieroglyphics, necro and his camp and so forth. Just because I also happen to enjoy some of the mainstream rap doesn't mean I'm not educated on what "good" music is.

Why would someone even want to know if Chingy went platinum? He's fuckin' Chingy for god sakes. Chingy and the word "good music" doesn't even belong in the same sent -- aw fuck. I did it too. It's contagious!

i'm not sure what you meant by that, but yeah...i like them obviously. you guys probably only heard their new shit and didn't realize where their roots are. Check out some of their older shit like the Mystic Stylez album. It's grimy, raw, and full of satanic references. definately a different sound from their new age stuff.

not true,

hiphop with a mainstream sound will always outsell an underground sound. the underground market is not even half of the mainstream market, and thats just the nature of the beast.

wu-tang did very well for themselves going up against death row, bad boy, no limit and cash money from 93 to a portion of 99. what made wu-tang lose its relevncy is when they stopped giving their loyal fans what they wanted and tried to claim the commercial success of the mainstream artists. that is the reason why hiphop in general has gone down the tube.

commercial rappers going multi-platinum have always been around. from 50 cent to vanilla ice to MC hammer, its always existed. what sunk hiphop is the the artists that make the raw underground shit caved into the commercialism of the game and no longer wanted to maintain the balance between mainstream and underground. everybody cant sell 5 platinum and underground music was never meant to sell like that. thats just not how it works.

i dont think there has been any other hiphop group that was more commercially successful while coming out with a very underground anti-mainstream sound. but wu-tang got greedy.

all these mainstream guys are doing to sell records is they're giving the people what they want. wu-tang had that same audience(while not as big) but they gave it up.

wu-tang's loss of relevency is there own fault.
