I dont wanna sound like an ass, but shit like this is why the board sucks now. How young can you niggas be. First, I saw a thread about not knowing who OGC is, now this whats the PURPLE TAPE, are you serious. Maybe its time for me to go. I feel like a fuckin old man up here.

I must have missed that rule that said young kids can't listen to good hip hop anymore.

Yea, as someone already said it is Cuban Linx. But no one has said the reason. The reason its called that is cuz early versions of the Cassette Tape and CD had see thru purple casing, instead of the regular clear ones you would usually see. And he did that to "distinguish his product from others."

no people like YOU are the reason the thread is almost dead, because you think you are superior to people because you're older, when in reality you're being very ignorant with your attitude.

Relax man, he's probably just a new Wu fan. Nothing wrong with some of these youngins not knowing shit like this. Just be glad we have more people with us for the Anti-Commercial Movement, better them listening to this rather than commercial shit. He asked a question, you didn't mean to sound like an ass but you did sound like an ass. All you older gods gotta understand, you lay the way for us younger gods, we learn most of the shit from you guys. So just calm down. If someone asks a question, the purpose of that is for them to learn.


Close the thread, the question has been answered.
