Ayo, anyone seen the video? .....real stuff
i haven't seen it yet ! gotta check it out .
have not seen video, is it like the song? i mean this guys sounds confused, he doesnt know wether he wants to protest diamond slavery or be a iced out thug.
Kanye West is the epitome of an overhyped, confused brotha that's trying to just get money from the conscious audience as well as thugs.
Man Somebody is in here really preaching....
I've seen the video. The video is tight to me.
I'll have to listen more intently for the confused part.
By the way, did you think Pac was confused? QQn
Tupac in my opinion was confused. Flaw negros get millions and catch felonies, thats all I got to say about that one...
Wow...I thought I was the only one to feel this way. Tupac had some positive messages in his music. However for every 1 positive song he had 7 negative ones. He was just as likely to tell a woman to "Keep Your Head Up" as he was to call them a "B**** or a Ho". One minute he was talking Black Nationalism, then the next he was talking "Thug Life". So little of us seem to catch the contradictory...schizo behavior! So little of us seemed to care. I'd have a problem with someone telling me to treat our women like Queens, only to go to jail for raping a sister shortly after deliverying his message....but maybe that is just me!
Nope, I've always said Tupac was a hypocrite. People always look pass the fact because he was a "conscious" rapper. You could say the same about a few rappers nowadays that some conscious folks worship, simply because they switch up every album. One day they're a thug and the next they're a profit. It's rediculous.
I don't think either men are or were confused. I think they are going after both dollars...those into the "thug life" and those who are "conscious." They're trying to provide something for everyone. No matter what you want, they want to provide it. It's a business decision. It's not confusion.
Why do you think he wrote those songs and made those videos referencing Jesus? Is he committed to any particular religion?
I don't know all of the rappers. But, I do believe they'll say and do anything just to make some money. How many cds does 50 cent have and he has a movie coming out based on his cd?! A new popular rapper gets a contract, a clothing line and a movie. Peep game...don't let game peep you.
