actually what i think i mean by being too old for hiphop is getting excited about new releases.

if labels like ST etc continue to thrive, i just wonder in 10 years time (if they're still putting out hiphop records) if im gonna care enough about whats coming out..

My guess is that your taste will get more refined and thus, you will start to get pickier and pickier. It's probably somewhat inevitable, you know? Like look at all the older people out there who just stop listening to new music after a certain period in their life.

I hope to keep my mind as open as possible. It's a fine line between not liking new stuff because it's shit or because your ears are getting stubborn.

it kinda becomes harder to keep your ear out for new music all the time as you get older,yeh sure i check the net at least once a day but im not up on everything new simply because life gets in the way

basically when i was 21 life=music,music,music,girls,beer,music

aged 30 =job,money,bills,girls,bills,money,job,bills . . some beers,some music when possible

yeah was wondering, does anyone reckon there comes an age where it is abit embarrassing to be getting mad excited about the latest hiphop HEAT?


Not at all. Now if you're past 30 and still spitting / exhibiting murder rap, that's a little different.

I don't know though, I mean I, personally, should NEVER be spitting bullet slang. But, Kool G Rap seems to do a pretty damn good job of it and he's past 30. Sooooo.....

I guess, that braggadoccio/ murder rap is somthing I will never promote, but man I do love some of the artists.

To me, someone like a Ghostface or Kool G reminds me of Scorsese; a story teller whose stories happen to be bloody as hell. It's not fair to get pissed at the violent Papoose's of the HipHop genre and not get equally pissed at the dudes who made Good Fellas and Casino and Resivoir Dogs, ya' know?

That's true, I mean if the personis actually still interesting as a rapper, then they definitely could get a pass. But on a personal level, shouldn't it be right that you grow past that stage? Not to say that it actually holds true to real life, but if you see a grown ass man acting like a 15-year-old something isn't right.

I agree with you on the Ghostface / Kool G idea. They actually still make it seem like an art, but they actually seem like they have themselves in check. I might be wrong but I haven't heard of them getting arrested for anything in a long time haha.

You can be 30, or 40 and still listen to Hip Hop or whatever I know plenty of people still like that. They rarely come out because the crowd is too young. Hell I might a well be one of them

As long as you remember to act your FUCKING age and don't be wearin stunna shades and shit when your damn near pushing 35


in the club chasing young boys, with my old belly meat hanging from under my tight spandex outfits...I can't wait



AHAHAHAHAHA and booty-do

yeah ill still listen till im 100(if that day comes) but it will be the good stuff of today, and hoping that in ten years there will be still plenty of good artists doing good things, kinda what i meant to say, how long i could stand hip hop (cant think of any good wording to put it)

I'll be 35 then...

Let's see... I'll definitely be done with school.
I'll have my own successful company (if I can't stand to finish my PhD in Psychology), I'll be married to my multi-talented boyfriend. Maybe a few kids.. We'll still be surrounded by music.




I'll be listening to De La, ATCQ, and everything else good 'til I'm 90! Shit, we gotta tell our grandkids (or someone else's kids) there was once good music.

hmm anytime after 30 i guess?


this makes no friggen sense since there are people including madlib, or pharrell... percee p... maybe pbw is also at the 30 mark, madlib is like 33 or something. Lots of people are 30+ listening to hip hop. Is it really that 'juvenile'? I never noticed

I'd be 28 in 10 years.
SHIT SEEMS RETARDED.
but HOPEFULLY i'll be able to make enough dough so I don't have to live paycheck to paycheck.
SHITS WEAK.
Hopefully have some little one's runnin' around wit' Wifey around somewhere.
Pushin' a RANGE ROVER.
That's what I hope for.
But what I SEE is me with 420,420,420 kids runnin' around gettin' nagged for child support, constant headaches, living paycheck to paycheck pushin' a Kia Sportage or somethin' weak,
and bein' in and out of Jail for Marijuana Posession.

In ten years, hopefully I'll still be with my girl. Then we'll be 15 years.
I'd like to live in a place with good weather, like now. I'll have more records, that's if I survive another ten years. I think I will.

As long as I'm well fed, have athletic activity, my girl, music to listen to, as long as I'm making music, art, film, or related activity and live in paradise, I'm good.

True, and maaan....some of those dudes get aressted for some young shit....DMX? Suspended lisence?! Get the fuck outta' here...I haven't had a suspended lisence in so long man. And when I drove on a suspended lisence...I didn't get caught. You definitely have a point.

haha heres the difference man them guys you mentioned are involved in hip hop its their job,not like they are gonna resort to stacking shelves is it?


But bro...I bet almost all of the dudes you mentioned would STILL be into Hip-HOp if they weren't the taste makers they are today....those dudes have it in their blood, I assume.

what is all this talk about death man? we can't all die in 10 years. at least not if the earth is still around and a suitable place for us to live.

i agree with the idea with not having to rely on paycheck after paycheck like it is now. i would hate it if my life (moneywise) was the same as now. i grew up in a environment where i always was fed and didn't have to worry about things. the minute i left home that life disappeared. i would like that life back. not worrying so damn much all the time about money and shit. it's pretty simple. keep doing music, hopefully getting continous releases, not saying i would live off music, but be able to keep doing it. and a nice girl hopefully. i can't see myself married though. and kids? hold up! not in the next ten years. i'm still a friggin' kid and think i need more time than ten years to grow the fuck up.

It's the cool thing to do man! Everyone's talkin' about it. Tupac did, Eminem does, 50 does....it's the latest fashion. I'm gonna cop a few pairs of "I'm gonna die soon" AIRS at Mr. Rags today, and show em' off all over the mall.

Get with the times dude!

Niggas is just dyin' unexpectedly and you just never now when your time is up.
One niggas there one minute then gone the next.
SHIT'S WACK.
Me personally, I'm not sayin' "Oh, I want to die.." but you just never know!

yeah, you never know, but that shit isn't even in my thoughts. i know people are kidding, but i sense some seriousness to it. i'm not expecting to die anytime soon. i hope i live to be 80 or more chilling with my good health. just eat right, stop hanging out with people that own guns and take care of this earth and everything will be alright.

Yeah. I agree with you.
But once I can't do shit for myself (I.E. Take Showers, Eat, Shit-Piss, Can't Get It Up) I don't want to live no more.
That shit's wack.
But I don't see that happenin' for another 65-70 years or somethin'?

I love that Edo G. and Pete Rock track with Masta Ace "Wishing"

Especially that verse when Masta Ace says "I wish we were'nt so obsessed with death.......I know you wanna call me insane, I'm a dreamer."
