    Why they kill Tupac n' Chris?

    Why did bush knock down the towers?

    I liked it. I was glad it got as big as it did, Jada needed a big hit. I feel like if this song didn't get as big as it did, he might've strated fading into obscurity, or relegated to 3rd tier or 4th tier hip hop star. I remember talk back then was that Jada needed to pull something out of the bag and make a solid hit.

    As for the song concept, it's just a recycled concept, originally John Lennon's 'Imagine', where he spends verses listing things, questioning the establishment and putting down his thoughts on what a perfect world would be.

    Nas had already done it with "If I Ruled the World", and Fredro Starr did one almost identical to Jada's when he released "What If...", among i'm sure others.

    But I guess that's what partially made it a hit. It's a song concept that's kinda hard to argue against, and has been done so many times before with relative success. The concept itself lends to an easy delivery and simple flow without needing to go to the well for real dope lyrics b/c the bars are relatively short and repetitive. It's just too bad he had to go dabbling into conspiracy theory. Then again, that Bush line might've been the difference between this being a moderate hit and a fairly big hit.

    In a couple years we'll get another song similar to this as a mild hit in any genre. It's almost inevitable, if it hasn't happened already (and i haven't heard it).

    That said, I liked the remix better.

    @_Menace_ I'll just requote myself from an earlier thread about this song
    Not really. This was a constant topic of discussion on the IC when "Why" dropped. If you actually look at the lyrics to that song alot of it is just bullshit. Niggas just saw Anthony Hamilton on the hook and assumed the entire song was on some conscious shit.

    "Why I can't come through in the Pecan Jag"
    "Why you at the bar taking straight shots instead of poppin Chris"
    "Why sell in the stories what you can sell in the streets"
    "WHy they ain't make the CL6 with a clutch"
    "If you don't smoke why the hell you reaching for my dutch"
    "Why my diesel have fiends in the spot on the floor for days"

    Same shit he's always talking about just over a different beat and with a singer on the hook
