None of you guys know anything about rap. None of the rappers you've mentioned are even close to the best alive right now.
Pete Rock & C.L Smooth
the new trife and ghost joint,
these just first off top of my head. Cormega is ten times the rapper then any of those fools. One of most underrated of all time. http://youtube.com/watch?v=xqJDHfrIeBAhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=TQ1cEWLlQC8
(one of my favorite rap videos of all time)
these arent even his best tracks.
"The saga begins
I'm a reflection of the drama within,
the ghe-tto I live in, niggas Moms on crack - Pops just disappeared
first time you get locked up who really cares?
I see a little snotty nosed kid with his sneakers on backwards
sleep' on a mattress, when I go to make a sale
at times I wonder, are we goin' straight to Hell?
or does God realize we're tryin' to make it as well
my sleep is interrupted by food on the stove,
not gun shots - we're immune to those
some of my friends first bids are two to fours
others - on the run with huge rewards
Mothers watch Son's walk through the doors
for the last time 'till they go view at the morgue
life is deep, we all just tryin' to eat
rap's a mental narcotic, I supply the streets"
"Live niggas I rep for, deceased I pour Moet for
those incarcerated, my heart is wit' y'all -
I know at times it gets hard behind penetentiary bars
then once free you realize you're mentally scarred
if not physically, if subjected to correctional facilities
prepare for your future to the best of your ability - prosper otherwise
you've been conquered
blowin' up your mother's phone so she can send you a box
Son, I sit inside my residence
and thank God I'm blessed with this poetical gift evident in every
ghetto like graffiti and crack sales
and cabs that won't stop for Black Males
undercovers givin' younger Brothers bad stares
Fours clap, Dogs crap in the grass here
you love to hear the story Son, the saga began here
MC's are fictitious yet the actual facts here
like the Bible said, Jesus had napped hair"
eminem, kanye aren't what rap really is.
