Yea but u must be some young niggas if u think Kendrick is hard nh
90's west coast was way too gangsta to be compared with what Kendrick is rapping about.
Niggas was rapping about 64's, gangbanging, smokin weed and sherm, 40's, jail, hoes, death row.
I don't think Kendrick would survive in that era
Never said he was soft bruh. Just saying that his type of music like the poetic justice song with drake and whatnot and ADHD couldn't hang with the rawness of Pac or Cube had this been the mid 90's.
That's the point my nigga nearly everyone portrayed that thug life, 'the angry black man' was still in fashion. Just because they didnt live it don't mean it wasn't the trend.
I'm not sayin kendrick wouldn't survive the 90's but a concept like gkmc woulda been a non starter, good kids got no love back then. Imo he woulda been a Crooked I type nigga, Drake woulda been a boy band type nigga
So we gone act like Illmatic was gangsta shit? As far as subject matter GKMC is the modern day Illmatic. A Day in the Life Story. So A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Main Source, OutKast, The Fugees, Busta Rhymes, Common, Puff Daddy, Mase, Mos Def and Lauryn Hill albums didnt exist in the 90's? Dont rewrite history bro. You ever heard of a Rapper Named MC Hammer?
MC Hammer was not soft...his music was commercial yes but it was known in Oakland he wasn't a softy push over. The same with De La Soul..don't let the daisy age look fool you. They were literally street cats coming from a different angle of being creative in Hip Hop. You can also put Common in there as well..
IT SADDENS ME HOW FEW PEOPLE ACTUALLY UNDER STAND the shit going on there and only cheer either side based on the rhetoric fed to us by the media on behalf of either party. In all Honesty in the immediate this does not effect my life so I could careless but if one group gains enough power over there and it the one pushing the agenda of converts all by any means then it becomes a problem for me so lack of stability and peace is in everyone's best interest till the fundamentalists lose power on all sides over there..
So why did the United States step to Iraq over Kuwait? Iraq was ran by a non-fundamentalist leader and kuwait is ran by the old guard. Both were on good terms with the US with Iraq being backed against Iran. Things don't seem as clear cut and i don't think Iran could touch Saudi Arabia without US interference. I'm not saying i know everything and situations do change.
I judgerappers by their catalog, then their skillset. Eminem is probably the nicest rapper technically ever, but dudes catalog is pretty bad for a great artist and has little to no replay value imo.
Then you shoulda voted Eminem not Nas. I clearly say technical aspect. If I was asking artist fine, but at least pay attention to what was being asked.
