Ugghhhh ( in E-40's voice) Let's kick it off like this. No need to state the obvious at this point. (In DJ Khaled's voice) "We the Best!"
Today the Dirty Awards are going down in the mighty ATL. As you may or may not know the Dirty Awards have been going strong for a couple years now. I'll have pics and such tomorrow. Here's a taste of what you missed last year. FABO!
Sometimes SOHH.com readers have the best comments in the world so what better than to include you in the blog. At least once a week I'll pull the best comments up and slaughter you myself or allow others that comment to do so or who knows, maybe your point will be so well positioned, all we'll be able to do is shut up. I feel like the trap has been laid for a balanced platform. That'll start this Friday.Until then. Lets talk Lil' Wayne, Andre 3000, T-Pain and Kanye West for a sec.
All of these artist have made and continue to make hip-hop the jazz of our generation. But do they get the credit from the ones that benefit from them expanding the genres reach. Everybody wants to talk sh*t on Wayne right now but do you realize where dude is about to take hip-hop and American Music. Lets start with 3000.
Andre's expanded hip-hop in his last works and it seems he is now not in the top ten when everybody talks about lyrics. How is it that the lyrical content is not considered now because he happens to know how to keep a tune. I love it when you bring up 3000's name in a lyricist conversation and they say " He don't count" lmao why the f*ck not! Cause he's better than you rapping or singing that's why not.
Kanye is expanding into electronica and such. Which people have a while to admit it but his lyrics really run circles around 90 percent of the game.
When experimenting in hip-hop, it's commonly known that hip-hop" will attempt to turn it's back on you, based upon how threatened it is when it's musical or financial capabilities or lack there of run out. How could you guys be so heartless?
Lil' Wayne is headed in a direction that you could see coming a mile away, all depending on your sight. Louisiana is the home of Jazz. Music is flowing from your palms the minute you touch the ground. We do have a few exceptions but for the most part, It's in our blood.
Rock N Roll is Black Music. The Media has stripped us of this knowledge because of the power of what the world would actually be like once we have total self knowledge. Anyway Lil Wayne after being welcomed then not welcomed in gangland now marches forward toward musical salvation. Once Wayne engages in this journey, will hip-hop turn its back? You think a lot of people would be glad because now you can actually make the hard core rap and not have Kanye, 3000, or Wayne to worry about being in your way. So where's the music? Everybody's talkin' sh*t. But where's the music. I'll tell you where it is. Everybody's in the studio right now trying to figure out what the hell they gonna come with for 2009 because Dre, Ye, and Wayne have completely inspired all of these people talking. You know how it is, you get a new love interest and what's the first thing your ole lady do is talk about your new love in a negative light 'til you come back. Point to my post. Ya'll love these brothas and their music. You just can't let the public know you love them because if you do, it would be one of the few times we actually showed class in hip-hop. But that my friend is not were we are, it's merely a wish of mine, Back to the WWF. I'm out.
P.S. What's gonna happen when this song is performed across the world! What does that say about Young Black America? Just asking? Calm Down? You first.
