GRANDMASSIVE AKA HIGH PRIEST
RAW CHRIST SHABAZZ
IMO, an artist (no matter what the creation is, a painting, a film, a song, whatever) doesnt have to live the life he creates in his art. All I care about is the art, not the artist. And every piece of art (real or not) has SOME thread of reality in it. It's based on SOME reality.
Jay-Z wasnt the leader of some multi-million dollar drug-dealing cartel but Reasonable Doubt is still a great album, PERIOD. Nas wasn't some mafioso, gangster kingpin but It Was Written is still a great album. To me, it's just like Pacino acting in Scarface. And still, there ARE people who live that life so it represents a reality that exists...
Now I understand the difference here. Nas back in 96 was ACTUALLY claiming he was that guy, but to me that's just part of the game. For better or for worse. It's almost like Hulk Hogan back in the 80s going on some talk show and talking about what he has to do to defeat Andre The Giant. It's just part of the show.
And even those emcees that have somewhat lived the life they rhyme about, they still ELABORATE and embellish a lot of what they talk about. If they had 3 cars, they had 30 in the songs. If they fucked 11 chicks, they had marathon orgies every night in their songs. (Isn't that lying too???)
And as for 50, I guess I've just outgrown his whole style... I used to think he was nice back in 02-03 but he's downright unlistenable to me right now. I feel the same way about Eminem coincidentally.
and according to your belief then people should hate on a LOT of rappers.
like somebody else said it's all entertainment....who cares....50 cent isn't going anywhere..
and the racism thing idunno what this guy is talking about
The thing i don't like about Curtis is that he's a snitch i do like his sense of humor though the guys hilarious.
for one he's overrated when he sold out his skills diminished, when he was underground i felt him because you could tell he was spitting from the heart.
My evidence, my own testament, written on wood
Twelve tribes layin at the head of corners in hoods
Actually he gets more love than some clan members, on a clan site...pretty sad
im aight with 50, his first album 'get rich or die tryin' and 'power of dollar' was nice imo, rest of his shit is garbage i dont check for him
I agree with Raw Taste and Afficial Nastee. LOL@Afficial Nastee saying he shouldn't have done songs with faggots Akon and Justin Timberlake hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I don't hate 50. I think he's a good rapper. I just wish he would do hardcore songs again like he did with Power Of The Dollar and Get Rich Or Die Tryin albums. I just don't understand how he can diss other rappers when the albums he's putting out is wack. I bet he feels that The Massacre and Curtis albums are good LOL. I wanna hear his mixtapes. I know he's done a lot and the only mixtape i've heard was Guess Who's Back and i liked it. His mixtapes are probably harder than his albums LOL.
^^that g-unit album had some bangers on it...search and destroy or whatever it was called....the elephant in the sand mixtape had some hard joints on it 2...
50 has a new one that he just put out for free download called "war angel".
and even though it has a couple joints for the ladies, a lot of it is street shit.
its got some good tracks on there.
1. He does not have bangin beats, they people who cut his check pay people who have bangin beats.
2. He does not have a good delivery, he mumbles and sounds like he has a mouth full of crap.
3. Throwing a catchy four bar hook that is nothing more than some simple ass harmonizing vocal where you mimic the melody behind you exactly, shows you have no musical ability at all.
4. Come on man, flow wise lyrically he hasn't got a god damn thing going for him.
He's a fucking clown.
That's not a backpack thing to say, it's a common sense thing to say.
Everyone acts like he's great, it's just like when people said older pop acts like the beatles were the greatest and they played some of the most simplistic retarded ass chords and had crap lyricism like "He's just a nowhere man, going nowhere with his nowhere plans"
It's not so much that he's the worst, he's just the most dick ridden, over hyped, untalented mc to be put as an all time great.
Even when he could still rap back in the how to rob days, he wasn't some God mc. He was just plain mixtape ass fiddy. Had he really earned his way up and became something great, I'd have no problem with him, but he didn't.
Now a bunch of dumb ass G unit fans wanna run around like "GZA sucks!!!~!" And I gotta go "Yeah, well I hope you die."
Some people say I'm an ass hole though, so...
