  • Re: Moment When You Couldn't Take A Rapper's Image Seriously

    Rick Ross, not just that he was a CO but after 50 Cent exposed him w/ the ratchet baby mothers, unpaid car notes, taking his kids out, the sextape of one of Ross' baby mothers, Jesus Christ I could never see him the same ever again.

    Also Jarule when he started saying him & Irv were Pac & Suge and did that video where they get shot at the end SMMFH.

    The Game also being a stripper & bi-polar af.

    Kanye is a smart man, even though i don't fuck with 808 and Yeezus. He intentionally switches his music so he doesn't become stale to the listeners ears. That ensures longevity. Don't want to be like TI and Rick Ross making the same album over and over and lose your fanbase 5 albums in.

    This is prolly one of the greatest displays of common sense but will go over most people's heads SMMFH. The double edged sword with music tho is that it marks time and people often want to live the past and want their artists to be "new" all over again. It's not even about Kanye anymore. However, I've always believed tho that part of the reason why Kanye gets so much hate is because he's married to Kim Kardashian now and people just don't like that broad so by default they don't like Kanye either.

    like i said...hes a con man tha plays on the dont burn a bridge angle...

    thats why he is always saying your dead to me.

    dont be fooled

    This is true..... he's from Toronto and runs the O'Leary Funds, he charges high fees for subpar performance and uses TV to keep himself looking hot. He's not even particularly good at it either. A lot of people pulled money out of his funds too. He's more about selling mutual funds than actually putting up numbers on the board. He acts how he does on TV in real life SMMFH.

    Bullshit. A fallacy I wish people would stop regurgitating.

    Stevie Wonder, Bon Jovi, Bruce Spingsteen, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, Dolly Parton, Tony Bennet, Barry Manilow (tha GOAT), Santana, Earth Wind & Fire...the list goes on.

    All of the aforementioned artists did not constantly switch up their styles and have(had) very long careers. Of course they all deviated from their normal sound at some point, but it is completely incorrect to say you need to switch up your style to ensure longevity and a dedicated fanbase. Some of the artists mentioned, now sing/perform jazz standards and/or classic records, but they still incorporate their signature style. They may not perform at the same venues that did in their prime (some still do, like Bruce), but they have some of the most loyal fanbases, and they have the type of careers most artists could only dream of.

    If you want to defend kanye, go right ahead, but don't do it on those (incorrect) premises.

    Gonna disagree with some of those names on that list (Santana, Jovi, Wonder and Sinatra - Quincy Jones helped give Sinatra a new sound and many of those artists took major chances with eclectic collabs which translated into major success for Carlos Santana and others), my thing is why is it a problem for him to have Paul McCartney produce his album tho ? That's why I said earlier that niggas wouldn't like it at first. Niggas are calling Kanye a sell out b/c he's having a former Beatle produce his album, don't see how that's much diff't than having Jon Brion, Bon Iver or Rick Rubin help executive produce your album and handle the musical direction. As if to say he won't still be doing rap music on records. He challenges himself musically, and whether you want to admit it or not if you look at all of his albums none of them sound alike. It helps significantly to up the ante on every album and reach new heights and audiences.

    This kinda reminds me of when Jay did MCHG and hood niggas weren't fuckin with it b/c of the art references and diff't things Jay was talking about. Jay's not the same person anymore he can't tell you about cars that might follow and being on the corner and make a whole album and entire persona dedicated to that (AG being an exception b/c it was a concept album). He's acting his age now. Kanye is stepping outside the box musically, before yall cast judgement let's see what they do together first. It may not be the only way to ensure his success but it definitely helps keep his sound fresh. Remember this is the same kid from Chicago that said he wanted to make stadium music, and be the greatest who ever lived. If I'm going for that accolade I'm trying to find people who have done it already and are still doing it.

    Lol at her being responsible for fighting boko haram

    I brushed that shit off as niggas just tryna get their LOL's but since niggas is being serious.... She's a philanthropist, she's doing her part for her community in her home country. It is not her obligation to fight terrorism and an entire milita. That's what the gov't & army is for. It's niggas on here that won't go to Afghanistan and fight the taliban and ISIS but feel like they can talk down. It's niggas who don't donate to any charities at all, let alone volunteer their TIME to make a difference to someone else without financial gain but want to bring her down about some bullshit SMMFH.

    She looks good. Bet her defenses up way high for real love, but she fuck wit no good niggaz on the low.

    She's been married to a lawyer for 40 years and has 4 kids, one of which is a DJ. She's not Oprah LOLOLOLOL. To start out as your husband's secretary in a place like Nigeria before it became what it has and go from that to beating Oprah financially is an amazing feat.
