yo silentnoize-

last time i heard ghetto bird by cube i waz thinking the same thing-
why dont cube make a new video for this joint,
even out of hiz own pocket if he had to, it would be like slapping mud in
the face of all theze candyland-ass videoz today-
I feel like alot of "golden era" hip hop would do very well in today's market cuz so many joints had such a "fresh" feeling to it ( O.C.- "Word Life", Tribe- "Electric Relaxation", etc.). Also, originality was predominant as well as the diversity of lyrical content. Not very many artists or groups sounded the same, unlike today.

WOW!! I surprised myself with the vocab rant, been listening to too much 94'-97' RZA verses . See, hip hop was educational......what happened?

Thoughts appreciated. One.
I heard this song playing from a friends cubicle yesterday. I asked her if she was listening to the CD, and she said no, it was on the radio. She listens to a standard local station. Ghostface was getting regular airtime play. I was surprised!

That is suprising, I haven't heard that song on the radio since it was a true single back in 96'. What state do you live in? I'm in South Florida so we don't get any Wu down here, (for obvious reasons).

WOw, you must live in NY or something.
I think it would get airtime because, Akon and Bone are gettin mad time for that new joint. Plus Back Like That got alot of spins too. With all this collaboration nowadays it would fit right in.

The song would flop hard today. If it was a corny fab/ja type song it would have a better chance. This song is too deep for this new generation. They want the dance music.

It would flop why?

Beat sounds like it has a sample & samples r too confusin 4 these snappers
Snares R All Wrong
Kicks R All Wrong
The hi hats r too quiet & dont do the snap sound
No South Synths
No Stupid South Country Slang
His Name Has No Lil or Young/Yung or Pimp on it
He Raps too Fast to sing along to sounds impossible but these newschoolers cant sing along to wu-tang songs even tho they rap fuckin slow
