True, all that sh*t garbage to me. None of my favorite rappers are doing anything right now, Lupe's album keeps getting pushed back.. he's from chicago tho.

I don't know why some heads on the East Coast wanna claim Pac. I live on the East Coast. I live in Maryland, a former home of Tupac, of all places. Almost no one bumps Pac out here. All they play is Biggie on the radio and in the clubs out here on the East Coast. I went back to San Francisco last month and they bump Pac on the radio everyday. You can hear cars bumping Pac anywhere in The Bay. He collaborated mostly with Bay Area artists previous to his Death Row affiliation (excluding Buckshot from Black Moon and Gang Starr). Spice 1, Ant Banks, Mac Mall and Pac were a team putting out dope Bay Area sh*t back in the 90's. Pac repped the Bay and the West till his death.

Because he was born here. He moved from NYC (To Baltimore) in his teens. Therefore he's from the east.

I don't "claim" Pac but truth is he's from here. He didn't feel like that, so he's "from the West"
And he didn't even sound like he was from the west. People just don't know facts and swear he was a "West coast rapper"

He was just making money/living there. East coast born and raised.

I know Tupac was born in Harlem and raised in Baltimore/Bay Area, but he's always seemed like a Los Angeles rapper to me.

Problems with hip hop

1.kats is burning themselves out on mixtapes and there albums end up sounding worst than the mixtapes

2.Dudes is taking too long to actually drop an album in the first place. Good example is juelz, wheres dukes album? We been waiting for like 5 years now. Drake too, thank me later should have come out when best i ever had was hot. He would have did that 1million in a week

3.Too many rappers, some dudes just need to play their position and just ghostwrite for more marketable rappers

4.Finally the problem with nyc specifically is- Too many people are looking for the next hot rapper when ny should be worried about finding the next hot PRODUCER. Nyc needs a new sound, we have rappers that can spit on every corner that shouldnt be our priority. We need that new producer with that new sound thats going to lace dudes with them fire beats


O and i almost forgot------90'S babies are the consumer market now

Fixed. It's interesting that you say that though because now you see the rise of rappers like Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa, etc. now that the 90's babies hold weight. But the 80's babies too, they also make a big deal about being an "80's baby". I heard the 70's babies didn't do that.

But I agree with everything you said (1-4).

KONY ima be honest with u. Nobody is really lookin at NYC as far as hiphop right now, its been about the south since 03 and i think its slowing down yet. U can go a whole day and not hear a NY rapper on the radio.
