fair enuf ya can get on the mic and rhyme all this queen shit but id rather hear a harder track like 3 Bricks, where the rapper is concentratin on how to up they bars n shit.
now you get me?
we all would most likely rather hear a harder themed rap song from our favorite artists...no doubt bout that
but by sayin love songs aint keepin to the TRUE form of hiphop has to be one of the most ignorant statments ive ever read
ive said it once and i'll say it again....there aint a law written in stone that states MC'ing is all about battles and actin' hard
unless u have tapes where the Sugarhill Gang was pitted against Busy Bee in an epic "hiphop" battle
c'mon man get real now...MC'ing aint about one certain subject matter...its like sayin if an action flick has a marriage in it then it shying away from the genre's formula
MC'ing is a way of expressing lyrics....just like any music form is.....dont generalize a music form based on ur preference dude....its jus gonna make u look dead ass stupid
im an MC myself...i like to spit bout a buncha subjects...politics, corruption, etc....but one of my strongest rhymes deals with love....cuz its sumthin i feel ive have a firm grasp on during my life and still do....that aint make me gay or nada...im not shying away from hiphop music....im jus spittin what i believe
and u 19 dude....wisen up yo
