First off these so called gangsta rappers ( not worthy of M.C. status) are frauds and whores for the industry who act as sonic agents to distort the self image of our youth. If you listen to these "herbs" you might believe 90% of black males are handi-cap drug dealers who inbetween being shot and running from po-lice have time to floss in insecurity mobiles like bentleys, benz's and beemers while smaking some double jointed stripper on the arse in route to the bahama's. These are not men by any means they're merely puppets used to misdirect the energy and spirit of our youth. So you got shot 9 times and this cat got shot 5 big deal...where did you go from there? You're a gangsta' clubbin' but can't leave your house without 18 big body guards ( off duty cops at that) and your platinum chain spins...big f*ckin' deal. Frontin' crazy hardcore cause they own a Tupac starter kit matching bandana and bullet holes to match, save it. This might delight the mallsters or white suburban kids itching for release from the plastic world but how does this fool grown arse men? These are cowards lower than mole men, some even federal snitches (and you know who you are) e-pill poppin', liquor salesman and manwhore pimp wannabees who probably take it in the pooper for their label heads. It would be "gangsta" if they stood up like men and confronted some real issues but they too busy being hot boyz to never men. The music I've endured for the last couple of years isn't even grounds for hip hop it's "Slobbage" low quality. Atleast if you gonna' rep. what's happenin' in the streets be a man and balance that situation. Street life is apart of real life but we don't need a superthug hero to save the day on CD only to wake up to life as we hoe it! I know that the marketing directors and and A&R's will never let another X-clan, Paris, PE Or Even A Digable Planets for that matter sign a major contract it's obvious they want us to emulate these Brute Ox savages who shine on B.E.T. MTV & Alike. I grew up in the essence of hip hop and I feel sorry for these younger cats growin' up seein' this thinkin' that this is what it's all about. Rap is definitely outta' control...I think we should elevate and innovate like we did with jazz and soul and move on to a new artform of our own doing...maybe we can make some bionic-hop bigger, better, stronger and much more elightening music. There's a hand full of cats outthere today that I do respect Dead Prez, MosDef, Talib, Roots, Common, All Things Wu-Tang...but again the balance is off and all that's left is to Get Right!
