    🤬 is soft. Old heads used to tell you about yourself and most times it was in a harsh tone. But instead of shutting the 🤬 up and listening 🤬 wanna get defensive.

    Considering post in the g&s this sentiment is hilarious

    Expound

    Mainly the last sentence about listening instead of being defensive whenever something you don't like is being said

    Making drug user music is worst than making drug selling music

    If anything, old heads are too kind. This new generation is 95% garbage.

    that's being generous. I probably delete somewhere between 98-99% of all mixtapes I download from DatPiff after the first listen.

    Aye new rap 🤬 music is trash . Nothing else to say. I give them all the credit in the world for the hustle and making a single that gets them money but their full body of work is trash. That's today's climate it is what it is shrugs

    Actually I wouldn't call it trash. The thing I like about new rap is the amount of sub-bass they use. It kinda puts what cats in New York were doing to shame. Blueprint and Stillmatic are supposed to be 5 mic classics, but production wise, the stuff that Cash Money and No Limit were doing at the time (circa 2001) had more sub-bass.

    There's a lot of songs I liked when they were originally released circa 2000-2005, but in hindsight most of the stuff out of New York had zero sub-bass.

    These new cats like Lil Yachty have 10X the bass of Blueprint and Stillmatic. I'm not saying he raps better, but he has more bass.

    so by that logic you should love old DJ Magic Mike, DJ Fury, Nemesis, MC ADE, DJ Laz, MC Shy D, and a whole lot of other older groups 'cause they got a shitload of sub-bass.

    Yeah I can remember when 2 Live Crew, DJ Magic Mike and MC Shy D were out in the late 80s. But at the time I didn't have a proper system to listen to it so I didn't understand why people liked it.

    I wish Blueprint and Stillmatic had more sub-bass.

    Why would you add sub bass to The Blueprint which is soul beats?

    Pete Rock should hit up the younger guys he likes and help them develop. That album with Smoke DZA was good stuff. He's drawing a line in the sand which means less work, less money.

    There's some good n bad, the balance is great if u look past radio tho, unfortunately a lotta 🤬 complaining are only casual or fake hip hop heads, or stuck on an era that isn't coming back. KRIT n cyhi just dropped bars for years, k dot n Cole came through, it's too much quality out here to b worried about the yachtys n what not, they for kids n white folks anyway

    Pete Rock got a point, but his attitude toward these new 🤬 music and the game is what’s the problem. That’s the reason why most the stuff is trash. And why he don’t have the ability to move the needle in favor of what he want to hear. His brother Grap come from the same Era but I doubt he is as negative towards these new 🤬 .

    They don't have to complain. They're putting out artist with bars, they're legends and can drop whenever they want to and they don't have to tour

    Nope it means you're a hater incapable of evolving beyond your own personal tastes and are not worth debating. You think outside the norm? You get chastized. Whether it's music, sports, movies, politics, social issues or video games. Everything is black and white. There are NO shades of grey. At least according to most of these geniuses here on the IC.

    So you didn't have older brothers/cousins/uncles/FATHER/grandfather/old head on your block? When they saw you 🤬 up they would pull you to the side and tell you. But we had respect for people older than us so we shut the 🤬 up and listened. Pete Rock been in the game for over 20 years going on to 30 years, dude knows what he's talking about.

    That doesn't matter to an established producer like Pete Rock. He doesn't have to look for work or money like that.
