    I don’t know if this debate is over or not, but I’m gonna add my two cents by quoting Mos Def:

    There is so much more dimension to who we are. I ain’t mad at [Lil Wayne]. I’m not mad at [Soulja Boy]. I’m mad when that’s all I see. I would be mad if I looked up and all I saw on TV was me or Common or The Roots, because I know that ain’t the whole deal. The real joy is when you can kick it with everyone. That’s what hip-hop is all about.

    yo @ everendingstory wheres that quote from?

  4. It’s from an interview for a book on Tupac, on the notions of Conscious Rap. Was many years ago, and I don’t know the name of the book.

  12. Since86man says:

    birthday wordplay – piece of cake lol

    dammit i wanna see him when he comes to NZ – no homo

  13. HybridHalfie says:


    Yep your so right.

    Just like how Mos Def said that their is no problem with soulja boy and that type of hip hop music at all. the problem is if that is the ONLY type of music out nowadays. that is when hip hop starts dying. Its the beauty of having a variety of consciousness lyric type hip hop like pac, lupe, rakim, mos def, talib Kwali.

  14. HybridHalfie says:


    continue: snap music that has not much deep lyrical content but that not enough rappers are focusing on lyrics. The ones who do are not producing as much.

    Simply their has to be a balance of styles in hip hop and thats what it is missing these days…at least mainstream

    Underground everything is all good.

    I still consider Lupe very underground because everyone knows his albums which are decent.

    His true shit is right here in the mixtapes only dedicated fans know about
