  • Re: Choir Sings ‘All Lives Matter’ at Fascist/Religious Nut Glenn Beck’s Birmingham Rally...

    Why y'all getting all up in arms about this? Black Lives Matter at this point is filled with agents/coons/cointelpro type motherfuckers. This All Lives Matter shit is a neatly devised distraction to get black folks up in arms about some shit, that's all controlled by the whites.

    yall would rather have krs one career or nelly's last 15 years?

    no diss on either side im just curious.

    I'd rather be a legend than a fly by night rapper. And it ain't like KRS One is broke either.

    so u'd rather have krs 1 career?

    whats the definition of fly by night?

    does being relevant for 12 years musically and 15 period fall under that?

    Nelly had a 4 year run you may stretch it out to 6. He's not a legend, no one has him in their top 5/10, he has no classic albums.

    KRS 1 is a legend, highly influential, classic albums and is a debatable goat depending on who you ask. So yes I'd rather have KRS career.

    Define "relevant"?

    nelly may not be a legend but he's either had hit singles, successful albums, or both that span from 2000 to 2012(his last top 5 hit) he may not be a top lyricist and of course its not ALL about selling records but, he made music that moved the crowd and satisfied his lane. he is an artist that reached a level of commercial success that krs one never has come close to. and now niggas are clowning him for being a reality star but its not love and hip hop so im not to sure whats wrong with that, in general id say he's much more relevant overall than krs 1. to say he's fly by night is absurd.

    now krs is a hip hop legend that paved ways for rappers today. id never go as far as saying debatable goat with people like nas or jay z (not to mention several of his peers) existing but yea. that classic album shit is subjective. when u say nelly had a run what do u mean? mainstream? how long was krs 1's mainstream run?

    His last successful album was dropped in 2004. His only hit after Grillz in 2005 was Just A Dream, outside of that he's dropped non impactful singles and flopped albums. So like I said Nelly's run was 4 years, I gave him 6 because he had himself a hit with Grillz. You want to know what rapper had a truly long run its the Eminem's and the Jigga's that had that long sustained run, it's the LL Cool J's that had 10+ year runs, not Nelly. Nelly has his lane but he's a fly by night rapper. His audience were mostly fickle fans that dickrides the latest trends. He's a pop rapper that should never be placed in the same category as legends.

    I've chopped it up with oldheads who don't even put Jay Z and Nas in their top 5, but KRS One is there though. That's some perspective for your ass.

    lol oh u mean the old heads who think everything after them is wack and say hip hop is dead as soon as a new generation comes up. yea they definitely had some perspective for me

    when i think fly by night i think chicken noodle soup or some shit, nelly is still having success now. not sayin he a legend but everybody dont have to be, doesnt mean he aint have a good career.

    Nelly had a run and is a footnote in hip hop history. He had his lane, but if yall keep shitting on a pioneer like KRS while bigging up Nelly, then it's fair to call him fly by night. Nelly has success as he's now delved into acting, can't take that away from him. But he'll never be as important and revered in this culture as KRS One and no amount of pop hits and sales will change that.

    That album was very underrated as well.
