    killa mike is nice, jada kiss & the lox are all nice, kool g rap, scar face, big pun was one of the best ever. if u got skillz u got skillz, i dont got to agree with your philosophy to recognize good music.

    jayo felony is decent. gangster flows are different more str8 forward then poetic, just a different style.

    I'm not into rap, but I agree there are those that have talent. The genre in itself shows creativity and a form of wit (with the rhyming and all). Indeed, the problem lies in the lyrics that are produced in many rap songs, not the art itself.

    See I honestly don't have a problem with the lyrics.....I dont' care what them boys say....a lot of what they say is what happens and it is the truth my problem comes when folks let themselves be guided by what them boys say......when folk let their kids listen to it and don't explain what them boys are talking about .........it's on us as grown free thinking people to handle our business...regardless of what the world throws at us.........for us to blame a lot of our problems on rap lyrics which haven't changed folks have always talked about broads, dope, killing since the blues.......Robert Johnson talked about killing his old lady if she didn't get on home in 32-20 Blues(which he took from skip jame's 22-20 Blues), Canned Heat by Tommy Johnson was about him drinking sterno to get high (Tommy was a vicious alcoholic....) , Cocaine Habit Blues by Memphis Jug Band ....and on and on from Stagolee to Frankie and Johnny ..........our lyrics have never changed we've always had dope, murder, misogony and all kinds of dirt in our music rap is just an extension of it's GrandDaddy ..............I love Blues....especially Country Blues but if you listen it's no different from todays rap lyrics........

    Hmm. Interesting.

    But, didn't songs back in the 'olden days' still have a sense of balance, even if there were negative lyrics? I haven't listened to the Blues, but I have heard songs from the 70s... many were about love and things like that.

    we still have a sense of balance today......there are myriad Black artists whose songs contain many different snapshots of life.......there was a lot of music in the 70's that was about some real funky stuff also.......just like now to me the more things change the more they stay the same.......

    Yeah there are some blues songs about love and such but there also a lot about prison life, murder, misogony everything you find in songs today if you look at any era of music you'll pretty much find the same thing and will pretty much find folk saying the same things about the music of their time.........like folk back in the day called Blues, "The Devil's music" it's a real trip when you really sit down and take a look at it..

    For some reason I like the ol'skool Memph Bleek. What about y'all? Is he a hot commodity right now?
