What New York City Needs: Clean House

| 467 Comments

Okay, so this has become yet another cliché, but until resolved, it will remain relevant: What can bring New York back?

As someone told me, it's a shame that the most anticipated albums of New York City hip-hop comes from rap veterans over the age of thirty. While many of them are respected, such as Ghostface, Nas, Method Man, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, LL Fool J, and a few others, this kind of leaves a limited space for newer rappers to emerge; a lot of the attention is focused on the big dogs of the game, thus leaving the younger and/or newer cats as a last resort.

In addition to that, watered-down, run-to-where-the-money's-at rappers, such as Fat Ho, don't realize that their retirement would pretty much be well appreciated, and would play a big part in keeping the rap game fresh. Right now, there's too much congestion, and not enough room for growth.

VH1 Hip-Hop Honors

"All rappers who is over thirty should not rap. I think there should be an age limit. I got five more years to go... I was born in the '80s. '80s Baby' means you were born in the '80s, not that you were alive in the '80s." -- Remy Ma

Sound familiar? Last spring, Cam'ron started a boring episode of "beef" with Jay: "You talking bout you an eighties baby you 37 years old/ You was born in 1968..." He also mentioned once that nobody really wants to hear an older dude rap (or something like that), which, if you really think about it, is real talk. As his twenties are coming to a close--if they haven't already--he should (prepare to) take his own advice.

If you analyze the present rap situation, the thriving regions have fewer older cats and more of a younger batch of rappers coming up. Even though the quality of their music is sickening, it is what it is.

Cats like Jae Millz, Cory Gunz (who's lyrical content is crazy for his age), and others, are always going to be --in a way--outshined and left on the shelf for next best as long as the older cats continue to keep the game saturated. People think "the game needs them," but we really don't (okay so we need a few). And even if some of the younger cats aren't that nice, it would help to allow them time to shine; with exposure comes encouragement, and development as well.

No disrespect, but New York City needs to be refreshed, reconstructed, re-everything. Put the mic down and let the younger cats do their thing.

i don't agree w/ most of wut ur saying. as hiphop grows older so does it's fans. i've been listening to rap since the late 80's, i'm 24 now. personally i think hiphops golden age was from 93-98 and thats why i still support those kats from that era. there are some new heads coming up that i feel but for the most part there is no innovation, there is minimal "building" in hiphop. if an older emcee has something to say or can add to hiphop then i say let em speak. as a matter-a-fact the only album i'm really anticipating for the rest of the year is AZ's album THE FORMAT. mad people sleep on Az even though his last album was one of his best, not a weak track on the whole thing. basically, u gotta support the real hiphop in what ever shape or form it comes in wether it be Little Brother, Jay-Z, Immortal Technique, T.I. or any other artist who's bringing something to the table.

and fuck ur FIRST bitches i'm the Alpha and Omega

well, i do agree that these label execs need to start promoting more younger new york rappers, but i dont agree that no
one wants to hear older cats rap.

i'm excited as hell to see jay-z and nas come back out and equally excited for Papoose to drop too. I'm 22 years old, but i got an old soul. I need dudes who bring that balance of party shit and thoughtful shit over tight ass beats.

I think one of the problems with a dude like Jae Millz is that his beats are too inconsistent. You hear him rhyming over over some tight shit one day, and then some doo doo shit the next. Same thing with Remy Ma, i think "conceited" was a horrible track; fucking processed ass garbage.

As it goes for hip hop, generally: weak beat = weak rhymes.......tight beat = tight rhymes. tight shit brings out the best in folks, with exception to real tight lyricists that you wanna listen to even if they on some weak shit like Papoose, immortal, jay-z, nas, eminem, etc.

I definitely wanna see Corey Gunz keep developing, cause his lyrical content IS that crazy. I heard him on that green lantern beat, and i was like this is it!


anywho, niggas need to start catch an ear for beats, and shit stop being late bloomers like jim jones.....the nigga is finally learning how to keep his lyrics on beat, say somethin with meaning, and even throw in a catchy ad-lib.


so basically, if new york is gonna get revamped it needs for one:

1. Papoose to drop that label LP

2. record execs to stop icing muthafuckas on the shelf when they sign some talent (fucking jay-z)

3. artists need to find some quality fucking beats, because theres too many fucking producers out here that will sell shit for $5,000 to $10,000 a pop to help yo bummy ass out

4. the artists need to rhymes some sweet shit over that

5. the back scene people at these labels need to stop being up tight and waiting for new york niggas to rhyme over laffy taffy, pre-scho casio keyboard sounding shit and just go back to studying the classics that worked.

fuck it!

Will the real QueensBridge please stand?

You bet I will! Some bitch-made nigga is using my name to co-sign on some weak shit! I don't like Lloyd Banks and I don't like Gay-Unit! I'm not fucking deaf!

For this Stan who is fucking up the blog! I know you're a ugly bitch ass high school nigga with low self esteem cause You're not getting any pussy! So to fulfill your pathetic ass life and have control, you have used names of other bloggers and made them argue-because basically you're a real fucking loser and this is the only way you could feel some significance.You can do this shit all your life if you want to but at the end of the day you're still a fucking loser!!!!!!!!!!

Do anybody know who D-Line Entertainmnet is? I keep seeing these guys all over the internet......

SoHH Reckless

These questions are for you. If the Cam and Jay beef was boring why in the fuck do you keep bringing it up?

Why do you seem overly homotional about Cam'ron beefing with Jay-Z?

Reckless you're a pathetic ass journalist@ the most! You have no fucking clue about any real stories. You basically recycle old ass topics you've done months ago! The mami SoHH Fabulous got her shit together why don't you?

Also quit saying New York needs to step their game up. You have been recycling your stories for a whole year and you're telling the NYC niggas to step their game up when you have not stepped up yours?

Why does this postage sound like a Jadakiss song?

Lloyd Banks is 24, will most likely be the next big thing on G-Unit if pushed the right way. Papoose can do some things, but its gonna take some strong Promotion to get him right. Jae Millz should've been moving units, if he keeps up the pace he own.....he'll be right with D-Broke. The main ingredient is support from the COAST. Plus, put out shit for the nation not for ya boys on the fucking block who ain't gonna BUY YO SHIT !!! Do u think them niggas on the block buy Lupe's shit in Chi ??? Hell no !!! Only music enthusis buy that shit man. But we big up the niggas like we gonna buy the shit, but CRITIC the shit outta everybody !!! To sum it up, STOP HATING !!! Lloyd Banks "Rotten Apple" in stores.....go get it.....for NYC !!!

hey reckless....i don't believe that shit for older dudes should not rap....i believe that as long as your pen game is tight, your flow game is versatile n your beats are on point, do the damn thang....u could be as old as Uncle Ruckus n Grandfather Freeman put together but u got shit to say n yo style is tight.....

what's wrong is that the new kids that's rapping forgot the foundation or their parents bred them on some weak shit in the name of hiphop.....

i mean i am no longer excited to check for new artists unless they are underground....i remember there was a time i would actually get goosebumps goin to check for a new rapper n then that first listen....wooooh!!!!

now i am mo likely to be disappointed....young'ns st6ep ya game up n the old dudes keep roking that mic till they lock u in yo tomb with it.....

PAMOJA!!!

Rotten Apple......go get it, its Hot !!!

I'm out in Cali, Rotten Apple...got it, and hell yeah.....ITS HOT !!!

Oh yeah, fuck New York !!! Much love to Papoose and Banks though !!!

i agree that sum of these vets need to retire but NOY MANY. think about it. jay-z comin back is 1 of the best things 2 ever happen 2 new york. and HE GOTTA BE TOP 5 OLDEST RAPPERS EASY! if the young cats could do it they would. it aint like these niggas aint got record deals like PHILLY NIGGAS. these niggas is SIGNED. if they was hot enough they would be out. point blank. its not about age as far as rap. BUSTA just made his best album EVER. and HE IS TOP 15 OLDEST RAPPERS EASY!

whats fucked is i cant even think of another 1!

Fuck that MAC DRE was in his thirtys when he dropped "thizzelle washinton" one of the most creative albums of the millenium. the whole thizz ent. started when he was in his thirtys his flow got nicer his wordplay impeccable and his perspective unmatched. hyphy movem,ent all day you beezies. niggaz do need some young blood though. niggaz that aint got it no mo do need to groom a protege thats real talk 4 sho. but to say a nigga shouldnt rap over thirty is bullshit. you got to keep an open mind.

Good Morning Queensbridge

You've been MIA for days on this blog, I was starting to miss you seriously! The blogs were getting boring without you here to crack me up and a bunch of asshole Stans have irritated me. Thats why I loved your postage I could not have said it better myself. Can you tell me what went down last Friday? How did you and Black Friday get into it?

THIS MOTHERFUKER WRITES THE WORST BLOGS VER NO JOKE> HES THE REAL REASON WHY NY IS FALLING OFF!!
THE MOTHER FUCKER KEEPS BRINGING IT UP LOL

The over 30yrs. cats make better music cause they're matured !!! They ain't worried about all the lame so called street shit. They go in the booth, like a real artist and make MUSIC. No lame dvd promotions trying to show ya street cred bullshit. Just go get it done in the booth !!! Their is a click that use this formula, but they get hated on for breathing. Another artist name Hov, who gets praised like he gave u life does this very thing. He even made a GOOD DVD about it !!!

Good morning Noria I missed talking to you too. For the record I did blog earlier yesterday but I didn't see any of your posts. Actually I really only came to this blog to talk to you anyways! Reckless topics are shit. About that bullshit that happend Friday it's just an old story about niggas acting like bitches there's no need to get into that.So what are you doing today?

To Queensbridge

I've been up all night studying for this French quiz that I'm having today. I'm nervous as hell to tell you the truth. What are you doing today?

Im not buying nobody from G Units album unless they drop a single with out 50 all up on it. its crazy!!! I like 50 to but im not buying everybody and their mommas album because they rocking with 50 .... Nas Coming SOON

Why should rappers quit once they hit 30??? You are no where near "old '@ 30,just (hopefully) mature.

Can you see "Dwight Mann" telling rockers & country singers to hang it up at 30??Paul McCartney is 64. The Rolling Stones are about 107 yrs old & they still sell out arenas.

Why KRS or Chuck D go get factory jobs while young cats like Papoose (the payola kid-we know you cashed a few checks)struggle just to stay on beat?

Seriously, there is a place for everything in our culture. Why do we hate ourselves so much that we want those of us who've seen success to simply walk away and vanish??

Lloyd Banks is 24, will most likely be the next big thing on G-Unit if pushed the right way
his career is way too dependent on 50cent!

^^^^^^^^^^

Co-Sign,

And Queensbridge I'm with u on that post up top FUCK THE STANS!

The problem is that these new dudes have no swagger. Jay-z, Nas, Busta... Papoose is nice but hes pretty much a punchline rapper. He might spit 3 or 4 hott bars out of 16 but he aint really talking about nothin'. Jay came out with all that cristal and rolex shit. Nas too. Busta was wild as fuck. The new generation just doesnt have what those dudes had. Maybe its that the times have changed but new cats just arent that intresting to watch.

Noria
You know me I got to go to work. So I'll be putting on my polyester pants, my plastic badge and I will be securing the perimeter at the Food Lion. If I get bored I'll just hit some kid with my club.

Just Bullshiting!
I'll be working today. Well I have to go Madame Noria I go to go but it was good talking to you.

"All rappers who is over thirty should not rap. I think there should be an age limit. I got five more years to go... I was born in the '80s. '80s Baby' means you were born in the '80s, not that you were alive in the '80s." -- Remy Ma

Not takin' nothing away from her skills, but she just sounds mad cause her album ain't do shit.

Anyway it aint about age, it's about talent and creativity cause you got old & new cats that's dope and you got old and new cats that's making shitty music. Cats need to stop pointing fingers and startin beefs and concentrate on making music that people would actually buy, fuck all them cop-out ass excuses.


This has to be the dumbmest shit I ever heard. Brink NY Back! Where the hell did it go? Artist should retire after 30, what kind of bullshit is that? If your nice and you have it then keep it going. How is these veterans stopping other younger artist from getting on? Lets put it to you like this, NYC is a cut throat city if your young and hungry it will happen. To say all these veterans will out shine you is a fuckin excuse maybe your just not cut for the hip hop industry then. Another thing this is about be fuckin stan city with dumb ass no bird brain individuals talking about, Oh NYC can't come up and Busta floped and yada yada yada............This site just loves to throw fuel in the fire so it will become a fuckin North vs everyone battle. BULLSHIT!

I really don't think age matters at all as long as they're coming with fly shit who care's if these fools are still rapping at 60-years-old?

it would be cool to let the young nigguhs take the torch but they can't....Thats the reason New york is New York....First the come in the game dissin they elders....Down South nigguhs put they legends on a pedastool thats why they both could exist....You don't T.I. dissing Scarface or Chamillioniare going up against Bun B....And no one in Atlanta trying to diss Outkast No they show respect to them cats.....in New York u got nigguhs with little success trying to diss Jay Z And Nas.....Come on man...WHen Nas and Jay z came in they wasn't dissin Rakim and Big Daddy Kane...Shit just a mess up there...Plus they can't rap betta than Jay z And Nas...So They need to step they game up...Much Respect...MYSPACE.COM/BOTTLESBABY

jay-z shit is gonna go plat in one week. i didnt think it would but the single didnt even drop yet and that shit is being played every hour. flex played a new song by hov yesterday on repeat from 20 minutes. and hov is smart unlike alot of ny rapper he aint hating on the south. he had a line about the bankhead bounce and mention bun and pimp c in the songand in a interview he said weezy f is the best rapper out right now.so niggas from the south will show that nigga luv.even the hater jim jones admitted that he like hov new shit. hes said he like it but dont mean he wont grill him in the club. but what u expect from a fake thug besides a ice grill. fuck these mixtape new nigga except papposelyrical skill is like fine wine it gets better with age perfect example lil wayne dude drop his fist album when he was 16 8 years later he's a top rapper. so i dont care if your 23 or 36 just bring that heat and im supporting your shit

nyswagger

Thats a lot of bullshit and you know it first of all Jim Jones said if I heard correctly that he liked Nas's song "Where My Niggaz At". He said he liked Nasir Jones song unless thats Jay-Z's real name other than Shawn Carter he meant Nas!!!!!

Reckless there are MADD other things to write/talk about. Why the FUCK do you always write about the same ol' shit?? You aint putting nobody up on new shit....just repeating the same ol bum ass shit. Step your blog game up Reckless. Get a new fucking topic....SOON cause right now, you lacking on your blogging. Then you always complain about beefs and now they are "boring", but you're the main one on SOHH writing blogs about the "boring" beefs damn near everyday like u aint got nothing else to write about. If it aint about gunit, its about jayz, camron, new york/eastcoast coming back/the south...STEP YOUR SHIT UP = constructive critism.

Game said that jimmy iovine & Jimmy Henchmen (manager) wanted him to cut the Nas track from 9 minutes to 5 minutes. Which he will but he said he'll still leak the 9 minute track for his fans.

Game was asked that his album is dropping 1 week from Jay-Z's and Game said "Blah. Blah, Blahh. Blahhhhhhh" He said i aint worried bout Jay & his album, he said i respect him & his music but im doin a Million in week 1.

Game said Jay-Z should be worried bout himself cuz he's dropping on the same day of Snoop's Blue Carpet Treatment and that's a crazy album which is gonna be fire, he said Im into the Blue Carpet and im a Blood, so wut does that say?

Game was asked about the peace offer extended to 50 Cent when he was in New York, Game answered with saying that: That was only for that one day ALONE & Only! Game said i tried 2 do it for Hip/Hop tried 2 do it 4 the kids so we can stop all of this, but he didn't wanna call in so Im done with it. But it was only for that day don't get it twisted.

Game said He had 2 delete a song from his album Cuz Swizz Beatz came over to his house and originally wasn't supposed 2 be on the album but they came up with some crazy song that it had 2 be on it. So Game said he put Da Swizz song as da last track on his album and removed another producer which Game said that the Producer was pissed but Game said I don't care. LOL

They asked Game what song is gonna be the song that people listen 2 and it will take over Hip/Hop? Game said mannnnnn every song is Fire on this album but Game said there is a track called (i personally forgot the track, sorry) that it will be fire cuz the way i spit on it, and its a Scott Storch

All these young kids talk about is drugs and murder.

Its crazy.

They need to be shelved. Let them learn how to make music.

I am pretty sure if the hip hop scene was in better shape Jay z would have stayed retired.

THIS ISWHO IS BRINGING NYC BACK...PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

WWW.MYSPACE.COM/MERGE05

Complete bullshit, i'm sorry but all you niggaz who think that MC's over 30 shouldn't spit, FUCK YOU. I would much rather, listen to KOOL G RAP, KOOL KEITH, RAKIM, DE LA SOUL, GHOSTFACE, RAEKWON, NAS & GANGSTARR than listen motherfuckin' D4L, Dem Franchize Boyz, Jibbs (this asshole is about 15, probably ain't even got hair on his balls and he talkin' about his fuckin' chain), Yung Joc & Young Dro. FUCK ALL THIER FANS. And for that stupid retard only known as Remy Ma, SHUT THE FUCK UP, LEAVE JUST STOP RAPPING, YOUR NOT GOOD AT IT & YOU LOOK LIKE A TRANNY.

The problem with New York and not even NY but East Coast hip-hop in general is that everybody wanna beef wit somebody...I mean these rappers be havin beef and they not even really on yet...mixtape beefin before you even got a album out...thats the problem...Your album is your statement...your peice of art that you give to the world....but nah all these young buls no how to do is come at each other...back in the day it wasnt about thought...prime example was the Hard Knock Life Tour...you had Jay, DMX, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Redman Method Man, and Ja Rule all on one tour...Now yall think about that for a second...Where the hell has that gone...back when Jay X and Meth was comin up...they all worked together...they all did each other shows...Look at TI and Jeezy do you see them beefin nah...we need to get it together up here and get together.

When the fuck are we gonna get a CNN, LOX or a GOOD Mobb Deep album? That Jim Jones "We Fly High" shit is fire and I aint no Dipset fan.

Oh and that Fat Joe and Lil Wayne joint is aight. I dont think the Fat one should've said that shit about NY switching up the flow though. Stay true to your city. He aint from the south.

When people talk about bringing NY back. I think they focus too much on what the charts look like, or what they're selling. That hinders the focus on one aspect. You can't accomplish that, when people are too worried about the charts.

It's not about the charts. It's about getting your music heard. Not trying to fit a mold or do massive numbers (that will come in due time). It's about getting the word out. All the people you mentioned in the blog thus far. It's not like they haven't done their job. It's just that they didn't do enough, to get the word out.

Damn I love to see yall going at it...1st off until the labels in ny get a new staff you we will see the same trend...a rapper can't sign themselves to a label...its the labels...you got niggaz that's 40 yrs old making the same deals with there sameold homies and recycling the same rappers...its new young talent on every corner in ny...but the oldheads won't give them shine...blame the djs 2 because they are homies with the old vets so its like a personal thing and until that stops if you lookin 4a deal in ny?won't work....example....if fat joe got new joint and new hot cat killin the streets...niggaz like kay slay...flex...gonna play joe....so sohh/reckless talk about the real problem these outta touch a/r&labels and these punkass dj's who won't play new cats...wanna know why the south is winning...new fresh talent...with new hotass beats...with some catchy ass hooks...no hate...and they respect the vets...ugk...8ball/mjg...face..cast...yeah some of its hot trash...d4l...dfb..but so what they got a lane 2....like I said b4....ny has hated on the rest of the country for so long that other places were forced to do there own thing and look now...we don't need ny to make a buck and its killing them to the point they hate there own...hiphop aint dead it just don't live in ny anymore...only lp to go plat this yr was t I...so ny as you see we aint trippin on yall...so keep hating while the rest of us move fwwd...age don't matter...I wanna see hov..nas...jeezy..t..I..all in vegas when I get 50 fuck that age talk..homie right rolling stones still rockin shows..and then you got niggaz who are bx 1min...PR the next..then mia...now they rockin grillz?with crips and bloods in ny?sohh what's the real problem with ny?

What up people?

I just think that hip hop as it began is completely different from hip hop as it stands now. You cant even compare the older artists to the younger ones today because the entire school of thought is different.

The older cats still have a fanbase - one based on a respect of skill - but the issue is that those are not the people buying records today. The people buying records today are the younger generation and they cant relate to the older cats on their level. Thats why you get all these posts about people should retire after 30, when the truth of the matter is, the sickest rappers out there are over 30. They just aint catering to the style of music the jitterbugs are lookin for, but I dont think they should have to.

All the older cats balance the game out, keep a system of checks and balances on it. Where hip hop began will be completely forgotten if those cats let the young dudes run with it. But part of that comes from them not teaching them right. Like parents of a child - its their responsibility to make sure shit is in order with the people coming up behind them, and I dont see that that is being done.

I really don't agree with Remy on that quote. On some real shit, rappers over thirty need to keep rapping because their fans are over thirty, also. Now, what's corny is when a 32 year old rapper still dresses, acts, and raps with a 18 year old mentality.
Fool J is garbage, but Busta, Nas, Jay, and Ghost STILL GOT IT! Telling them to quit rapping is like telling the Isley Brothers to quit singing!

Why do Rock and Roll cats get to be the only people who can have thirty-year long CAREERS. Does anyone tell Aerosmith or Rolling Stones to get outta the way and make room for younger bands?

I think it's a huge sign of growth and development (of the music form) when you can have a rapper with a career that extends over multiple decades (I see you Too Short!) still making relevant music that people care about.

Let's grow up. See what happens when the blunts and guns are exchanged for blunts and Briani suits.

C'mon man, kill this bring New York back movement, I'm with Pimp C, ya'll had it for years and case and point, ya'll actually have it now, 50 Cent is New York, you hate on your own and he runs the game. Love'd him when he was a dog but hate him now. F*ck New York, can't love your own ass city. We have unity in the South. 50 Cent is New York....

ON BEHALF OF ALL THE FANS of NEW YORK

WE WILL START TO ACCEPT THE UPCOMING TALENT WHEN THE ACTUALLY HAVE SOMETHING FOR US TO LISTEN TO...UNTIL THEN WE WILL SUPPORT THE VETERENS BECAUSE WE CAN RELY ON THEM FOR GOOD "LYRICAL" MUSIC AND THE SWAGGER THAT IS NEW YORK. HALF OF THESE NEW CATS ARE MISSING ONE OR THE OTHER...EITHER THEY HAVE TALENT, AND NO SWAGGER (PAPOOSE)...EITHER THEY HAVE THE SWAGGER BUT LYRICAL ABILITY IS MEDIUM ( CAMRON...WHO I AM A FAN OF AS WELL)... OR THEY THINK THEY MADE IT WHEN THEY DIDNT ( JIM JONES...BUT HE GOT A HIT OUT)....REAL TALK, I MISS NEW YORK FROM THE 90'S AND EARLY 2000'S....

BUT MY OPINION IS RAP IS MONEY ORIENTED (SP)....THEY DONT CARE ANYMORE ABOUT SKILLS...LOOK AT PAPOOSE, GREAT RAPPER...CRAZY PUNCH LINES (BANKS TOO)..BUT FIRST THING HE START BRAGGIN ABOUT IS 1.5 MILL DEAL...I NEED THAT NEW YORK BACK...BUT UNTIL THEN I WILL DEPEND ON THE CLASSIC RAPPERS....AND IF THEY DONT DO IT, I WILL BUMP THE MUSIC FROM BACK IN THE DAY...

I WILL NOT SUPPORT THE TRASH THATS OUT NOW...I THINK CAM'S ALBUM SHOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER, LET ME DOWN. I WAS HURT FOR METHOD MAN, WTF HAPPEND TO DMX.....


YEAH I LIKE GAME TO...HE'S WEIRD AS A PERSON, BUT LYRICALLY HE'S NICE

The south is killing hip hop. Not all of them but the majority of the shit coming out of the south is trash. Jeezy needs to go to rehab before he has an overdose on his own lyrics. Young Joc is terrible. Paul Wall cant talk about anything but his grill and candy paint. Rick Ross is just a better version of Jeezy. I do like Sean Paul and T.I. I think NY is trying anything to sell records even riding the south. A change is gonna come.

New York u got nigguhs with little success trying to diss Jay Z And Nas.....Come on man...WHen Nas and Jay z came in they wasn't dissin Rakim and Big Daddy Kane...Shit just a mess up there...Plus they can't rap betta than Jay z And Nas...So They need to step they game up...Much Respect...MYSPACE.COM/BOTTLESBABY

Nothing wrong with competition keeps you on your toes. NYC artist have been dissing each other since the early 80's it's called battle rapping. Who can take the thrown like I said NYC is cut throat.
