I was thinking about it, and i know he really got it from Gillie and rollin with Santana, but for whatever reason, the style which Wayne adopted, that shock type say whatever it takes to get a rise rap common for decades out east, as oppose to his prior narrative style rapping, people caught on like fish and suddenly he was many people's GOAT.
So if Wayne can use that style to sell multi-million albums to white folks, get megarich, and praised for killing tracks when he dont be saying shit, why didnt New York /east coast rappers get in on that. As a matter of fact, they seem to have shied away from that kinda music during the time Wayne was sky rocketing.
You'd think they'd have been able to shine best at what they are best known for (punchline rapping), but here you got a southerner who finally did it cool enough to make it pop?
What did Wayne do so much better than all those real NY battle MCs who been on the hood tapes for ages?
What gives? discuss...
