Just imagine that someone likes the culture already for some times, used to do graffity, djing and then people get to understand that with the music
belonging to the culture one can earn mad money.. When that happened al of a sudden hiphop became mighty large, not only the music but all parts of
the culture were al of a sudden selling objects, and then people who are not in it for the love of it but only for the money are starting to take
over..because the big public who doesnt know what its all about thinks that this is it..This is Hiphop..but then, when u listen more carefull you can
hear people screaming in the background..hard to hear because them bigmouths overshout em, but what they say is more like it really is, and they also
try to let the music evolve, dont use the same samples over and over, dont say the same rhyme 100 times..they in it for theyre love for the music,
love for the culture..i dont think you can call em JEALLOUS, then angry..angry because the money, like always, is destroying a lovely culture...
Its not because fat joe said, jeallous ones envy...they do, its more that he said it because he lost it..
Like this quote bout Atmosphere-The group reportedly turned down several major label deals, opting to release "Seven's'' on indie punk label
Epitaph. But with stunning tracks such as "Reflections'' and "Always Coming Back Home to You,'' it won't be long before the rest of the world
breathes in the Atmosphere..in the end it was released on Rhymesayers/fatbeats..
Like always, majors control the public, mtv shows what you have to listen too and jiggy jiggy boom-boom just sells better then some guys saying
Dont get me wrong, also in mainstream rap there are some good ones..very good ones indeed, its just that most are not..but then, if people listen to
your music you didnt do it so bad, so also respect to all sell-outs..i just dont like it..
They love the taste of blood, now i dont know what that means but i know that i mean it. Maybe there is evil as they see me, or maybe i only look out
the window when its scenic. Atmosphere finally made good record, yeah right, that sjit almost sound convincing. The last time i felt as sick and
contradictive as this was the last time we played a show in cinci. Git real they tell me, if only they knew how real this life really gets. They would
stop acting like a silly bTch, they would respect the c0k wheter or not they believed in it....atmosphere-trying to find a balance..
-iam not insane, in fact iam kinda rational, when i be asking yo where did al the passion go.....
