Interests: Since its original start in the late 70's to early 80's, Rap (or Hip Hop which I use interchangeably) has been a creative outlet for an under privileged culture that was in dire need of a release from its' frustrations. These frustrations manifested themselves as a response to the impoverished living situations, racial discrimination, low quality of public education, dysfunctional in families, and at the center of it all, hard line drugs such as heroine and crack cocaine that enslaved entire communities. Rap music allowed the amassing pressures of social inequalities to be released in a positive non-violent manner. I am a minority, ethnically speaking. However, I consider my self more as a minority, not necessarily because of my ethic categorization, but rather because of my, what appear to me as, uncommon set of beliefs in a time when the majority of Americans are unaware of the instruments used by elitist class to suppress the progression of the working class through means of social manipulation such as consumerism. As a result, we as a people buy into the media-fed message and become more concerned with acquiring possessions (i.e. bling, whips etc.) to cover our insecurities instead of pursuing the intangibles of life (such as education)which release us from our oppressors.

Okay some artists just stupid come up with stupid shit. So let me get this straight, what we as the consumer have to look forward to when buying Nicki's album (which I'm not buyin) is an introduction of Onika?! GTFOH. Why the alter ego? And Roman Zolanski (a spin off of Roman Polanski, the Director that fled to country to evade conviction for raping an underage girl)??? All I don't know mane...All I got to say is artists need to focus on their pen game before tryin to create bullshit gimmicks.

Why would a fat body like Rick Ross wear RANGER tabs on his shirt?!? Does he realize how stupid he looks wearing this?? I'll bet you that Rick couldn't even do 1 fucking pushup. He has no business being anywhere near 75th RR tab..GTFOH..

Got the album. Really feelin' the Nas/Damian fusion. It's a sad day in music when quality artists making quality music move less units than a Justin Bieber.

Sorry Mystikal, as much as I'd want to say otherwise, your shit is no gonna get you anywhere near 100 mill. You'll be lucky to sign a deal that advances you 100k. The only competition in your league now is Tony Yayo. Those No Limit tank days are long gone.

"I am the person that put it out that she did a cease and desist letter or whatever that sh*t is that she did," Antney said in an interview. "I put that out, she didn't put that out. She never said anything, that was to stop people from continuously calling me to let them know I no longer have her. She chose not to be with me. That's why I do sh*t on a handshake. People out there might say that's a sucker, but I'm not, that's who I am. You don't want to be with me, you're gone free. Can someone please tell me how to decode the this secret message. It makes no sense to me. It must be coded in some form of encryption.

Why are we staring at a picture of Ross pouring himself a cup of folgers while his wack ass porsche belt looks like its hangin' on for dear life. hahaha

Nobody is coming into Def Jam with their "gangster" entourage. If Lloyd signs with Def Jam, both Ross and him will be Def Jam's bitches and will do as they are told. Record executives hold the real power and can, at will, financially twist an artists arm to make them comply. Only a few well-established artists have actual influence over the label they're signed to.

Hahaha that's the first thing I thought. Banks needs to enroll in some basic English classes at his local junior college. He has the communication skills of a 5th grader. It is possible that Banks has some type of cognitive disability (aka mental retardation) based on this interview. This is my favorite part: "You don't be no bump into these guys [types of] situations, they make it they business not to be there and I can go anywhere I want to go."

No Thanks. I'd rather go to Ralphs and read the ingredients listed on the back of every product they have in stock.

I constantly find myself agreeing w your perspective maine....but shit is real. I don't have the time nor the desire to pick up a book of that size only to find myself read about Lloyd Banks. Give me a 600 page book based on an intelligent subject and i'll bang that shit out over a couple weeks. But how the hell is a muthafucka gonna spend weeks on his/her freetime reading bout these SOME (not all) of these rapper's ignorant ass views. Shit...that kinda of thing will end up dumbing down a muthafucka lol.

Honestly I didn't even read the article on Remy. All I know is that she needs to fix all of her legal problems cuz the last Remy Ma track i've heard that was worth mentioning is Lean Back.

Damn, Kurupt synonymous with the west just like a whole lot of other west coast rappers that come to mind, but these cats never could generate a real buzz. Jay Rock is tryin, but i'm skeptical. Whether you like Game or not, he has been the biggest thing to happen to the west in years. Can't think of anyone else that has made the same kind of impact.. This shit is getting sad. The west has been in deep slumber for a min. Someone wake up the west coast scene again..

SMFH..Damn. Education is a joke in the United States.

Maybe Game can issue a couple more 30k stacks into some kind of community-based program focusing on education since 20-30k is "nothing serious."
