Not long ago Rakim put out a new album and I was ecstatic. I just KNEW things were gonna turn around and real rap would be hitting the airwaves once
more...NOPE. It was as if it never happened and Rakim was one of the true greats. Now if I wanna see real hip hop I have to go to one of those Legends
of Hip Hop shows You know the ones...where there are lots of people from the 40+ crowd, lol.
The end of all the awesomeness came once people realized there was big money to be made. Once Diddy shuffled his dumb ass out there and proceeded to
pimp Biggie (who I still dont think contributed as much as people say) for all that he was worth, it was over. From there materialism, misogyny, self
hatred and a bunch of other nasty things were embraced full on...all in the name of getting paid. Then the south got a hold of it and if Diddy crapped
in the bag....southern hip hop then proceeded to set the bag on fire. Outkast, Gheto Boys and a few others managed to show that its not all garbage
but their voices were quickly drowned out by Lil Wayne and his Cash Money Brethren.
