This board blows. Its become more of a hip hop expertise contest rather then intelligent perspectives, statements, opinions, questions, inquiries, etc...
Can I get a witness!

Ok, let me rephrase.

Its become more of a hip hop expertise contest rather then intelligent perspectives, statements, opinions, questions, inquiries, etc...

I guess what I mean is there is always some wannabe hip hop expert who trys to put you down for your opinion or statement due to their inflated hip hop expertise ego.

BTW... I'm sippin on an Estancia Pinot right now that is not bad at all.

some of them dont bother me, the sample questions only pop up every so often and its easy to play around with those. but questions and all that are cool, i mean when i was a new guy on the old board (damn that sounds lame everytime) i learned some good things and its always cool to help a guy or gal out.


*checks ID and releases is only 21*

to young for yall. later.

Im already 32 but thats no problem for me. I was growing up with Hip Hop and thats cool. I think GZA, Rakim, Premo, Pete Rock, Dre and all the Pioners are around 40 nowadayz and Rap is a serious music, at least in my eyes. So I dont mind talking with younger people about that.

oh good. Planet's at where I'm at. I thought I might be clockin' in as the oldest old timer 'round here. <_<



I don't know what everyone's getting to so uppity about with the state of hip-hop these days. I started breakin' in '84. I loved it then and I love it now. There are tons of new releases each week I cop--So I'm not afraid about its future----Sure, there's WAAAYYYY more garbage out there nowadays. Let the sheep have at it. It's not hip-hop. Whatever state I'm in, hip-hop is always there for me. And you too. Relax.

Oh and by the way, I don't even really know what I was trying to say there. I took the day off work and have been smokin' some Hoooooweeee all afternoon. Apologies.

Good point! Do you remember the early 90's when there was so much good ish to listen to. Nowadays, it doesn't compare.

I was so blown away by De La's latest album when it came out, because "The Grind Date" is just as dope if not doper then some of their earliest stuff. And for some cats that have been in the game for the better part of 20 years, that says alot. They never changed up their style and they basically kept the same formula. "The Grind Date" reminds me alot of "Stakes is High". Longevity baby...

to be honest i really dont give a fuck about any new hip hop releases no more i think iv just lost the passion for it,after recenly breaking up with my girlfriend i debated selling all my equipment and just trying to get a decent job but fuck it i enjoy it,still not even looked at my mpc for over a month though <_< i dont think il take to being 30 very well but im sure il get over it i have no choice after all

oh and as for whoever mentioned pete rock,primo being in their 40's hip hop is their job! not like they gonna go start stacking shelves in a supermarket,my point being is when your broke at a certain age making beats takes a backseat and life takes over

I'm under 25 (22) but I remember in the early 90s to mid nineties, that was like heaven. I could listen to the radio for hours and they played real music all day. Around that time in my life I was going through some family problems and hip hop was like therapy for me.

For all you old folks (like me) : If you have VH1 Soul they are playing crazy old school videos now. I just saw "In the Ghetto" by Too $hort followed by "Scenario" by ATCQ. I feel like it's Yo! Mtv Raps all over again ... except it's not after school and I'm not eating Cool Ranch Doritos !!! Pop in the VCR Tape !!!

Of course had Hip Hop music his golden age in the 90s. Anyway the musik is still deveoping and a lot of good stuff is released recently. Thats why whe "oldies" can still listen to that music. But if we would only listen to the stuff we heared back in the days, we would not be better than the people who listen only to 80s music because that was their time.
Another point, from personal experience I can say that a decent job and listening to hip hop as a grown man fits perfectly together. You dont have to listen to classical music to be succesfull at work, even if you are a lawyer. But sometimes you just shouldnt mention that you were listening to "fuck the police" when you are driving to court. ;)

I Think That Some People Are Looking At this the Wrong Way
I Don't Think It Is So Much That The Music Now Days Is Garbage
Just Not Our Cup Of Tea
You Know What I Mean

I Think That The Music One Grew Up With Will Always Be The Best Music To That Certain Person
Listening to It Brings Back Memories

It's The Same with Every Generation
Like One Of My Uncles, My Uncle Joe, He Was a Guitar Genius And He Loved Music
But If I Put On a Hip Hop CD He Would Call It Garbage
And I Know It Is Him Just Being Bitter About Things Not Lasting Forever
He won't Even Pick Up a Guitar Anymore Because He Feels Like If He Can't Play The Way He Used to He Doesn't Want to Play

In 20 Years From Now There Will Be A Bunch Of Weird Ass Music Coming Out
And Kids Who Grew Up Listning to The Paul Wall and Chamillionaire Will Be Like "Damn This Music Sucks, Remember the 2000's?"

But History Usually Repeats Itself So Just Be Glad When You See Others Pulling Influence From Their Forefathers.

My 2 Cents

People in my generation, im 19, and they think they are more hip hop than others when they have an ipod full of mp3's...To me hip hop is about being different and trying not to be hip hop...I mean look back then, there were so many artist and so many different styles, and it was ALL hip hop....Be different kids...Dont just listen to hip hop, listen to punk, funk, rock, reggae, jazz.....i do....
