CANT CALL IT HIP-HOP


ALRIGHT PEOPLE THIS IS SOMTHING THAT HAS BEEN ON MY MIND FOR A WHILE.RESPECT THE CRAFT PEOPLE.LET ME EXPLAIN TO YOU WAT THIS MEANS.EXAMPLE, WHEN SOULJA BOY CAME OUT WITH CRANK THAT EVERYBODY WAS SAYIN THAT AINT HIP-HOP WHAT IS THIS GARBAGE.WELL THINK ABOUT IT.ALL OUR PARENTS ARE IN LOVE WITH RAPPERS THAT WAS OUT WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG.AND WHEN RAPPERS WAS RAPPIN ABOUT MAKIN MONEY AND JUS SAYIN HOW THEY FELT.THE GENERSTION AND THAT AGE GROUP KNEW IT WAS HOT.IT WAS THE OLDER PEOPLE HATIN TALKIN CRAP.NOW LOOK.THE ONES THAT KNEW THERE STUFF WAS HOT SOUND JUST LIKE THERE PARENTS NOW.THEY CALL ARE MUSIC GARBAGE AND IT'S NOT REAL HIP-HOP.TO TELL THE TRUTH YOU CANT EVEN CALL IT HIP-HOP ANY MORE.BECAUSE EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED.LIKE OF COURSE I LOVE THE SONG D.O.A. I DONT REALLY LIKE THE MESSAGE OF THE SONG.YEA YEA EVERYTHING DIES OT BUT LET DIE DONT KILL IT.BECAUSE IF N.W.A. AND KRS-1 WAS USIN AUTO-TUNE BACK IN THE DAYZ AND WAS USEIN ON ALL OF THERE SONGZ IT WOULDNT BE ANY BODY MAKIN A DEATH OF AUTO TUNE.I MEAN YALL GAVE THE BEASTIE BOYZ A CHANCE.GIVE THE GS BOYZ A CHANCE.IF STANKY LEGG CAME OUT BACK IN THE 1980'S IT WOULD OF BEEN THE HOTTEST THING OUT.NOW WHEN OUR PARENTS SE THAT VIDEO THEY CHANGE THE CHANNEL.HALF OF THE STUFF THAT COME OUT NOW IF IT WOULD OF CAME OT IN THERE GENARATION THEY WOULD OF THOUGHT IT WAS HOT.IF THERE OLD MUSIC CAME OUT IN 2009 THEY WOULD THINK IT IS WHACK.PLZ IM TRYIN TO STOP OUR GENERATION FROM DOING THIS TO OUR KIDS GENERATION.ALL IM SAYIN HERE PEOPLE IS RESPECT THE CRAFT.THANK YOU.

  1. Can you honestly say it's still a craft? It's all ran by corporate bigshots who are after money. They make you "like" the music that's out today, by controlling what you watch. I would like to provide a example of this by posting this article, http://www.imageyenation.com/?itemid=1528
    BET has refused a music video by the group Little Brother for being "too intelligent", adn YOUR TELLING US TO RESPECT THE CRAFT. Your being played to like Soulja Boy and the GS Boyz, they tell you it's hot and so you believe it. I'll stay underground till this bullshit era of hip hop passes. By the way, I'm 19 and I truly know what the craft is.

  2. No disrespect to Soulja Boy or all of them, but there's a whole other world to hip hop that's not being represented to the masses. What we need is a balance, there's been to much Soulja Boy not enough Wale, to much GS BOYZ not enough Little Brother. Hip Hop just needs it's diversity represented.

  4. I agree with wat you guys are saying but this guy does make sense about how back in the 80's everyone was hating on hip-hop. I personally dont like souja boy but (but that song spacemanflow went hard) But when you say hip hop I think of lil wayne and drake and kanye and jay-z and kid cudi ect. the actually come with lyrics and a concept. also follow me and I will follow you at lifeofthenewlouisvuittondon.blogspot.com

  6. I am with you 100%, fam (Crowned King Music).

    Everybody thinks they're true hip-hop heads 'cause they know Soulja Boy isn't real hip-hop. Soulja Boy IS real hip-hop. You got a young cat here that came from nothing, produced his own beats, wrote a song for fun, choreographed a dance to it, put it on YouTube, and got a whole nation of people rockin' to his joint. If that ain't hip-hop, I don't know what is. Does "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang really have some deep, lyrical, real hip-hop message in it? No, it's just a fun dance/party song, and it is definitely hip-hop. Open your eyes, ears, and minds, people! Hip-hop ain't what it used to be. It's gonna keep changing. Good music is good music. The end.

    SIDEBAR: I, Bobby Earth, am a 14-year-old recording artist and producer. My music is new and different. Really different.

    Yes, hip hop has always had its "fun" songs, but that's all that's being played!!!!!!!! Hip Hop has had Kid n Play, 2 Live Crew, Digital Underground etc. But they were still played with the rest of hip hop, even then they got played with the rest of hip hop.

    The TV and the radio control what you guys listen too, and just hearing that BET would pull shit like that shows you how crooked the media is, and that they don't give a damn about you or hip hop. Just how deep their pockets get, but judging by your definition, that's hip hop right??????

    NOT TO MENTION YOU STOLE ALL OF THIS FROM KANYE WEST "You got a young cat here that came from nothing, produced his own beats, wrote a song for fun, choreographed a dance to it, put it on YouTube, and got a whole nation of people rockin' to his joint."

    Which is coming from a guy who made a R&B/pop album (808's) and even wanted to call that hip hop. ALSO NOT TO MENTION IN THAT SAME KANYE INTERVIEW KANYE COMPARED SOULJA BOY TO NAS!!!!!!! SMH........

  9. Soulja Boy aint hiphop. He is what hey call a RINGTONE rapper. He cant rap its more trying to sing but edit his voice. Same with Kanye he can rap a bit but its slow rap and trys singing more than rapping.
    dont get me started on rick ross.

    Real rappers are people like Nas, Pac, Biggie, Andre 3000, jay Z , eminem , dre , nwa, public emeney, common, mos def,rakim,KRS ONE and overs. it sounds like ya parents listen to good music LOl I not hating on no one this blog. Just saying people like Soulja Boy aint hiphop. I love hiphop and love it for like 6 yars. I got over 250 CDS. I know what hiphop is.

    JIMMY I backing you on this one. I dont hate Kanye but he aint a real rapper. If you want a real rapper check out Scarface, Nas, LL Cool J, Rakewon, ETC. Ya parents are right Soulja Boy aint hiphop. He just got busted anyways and got arrested LOL

    Last you cant compare some on like Nas to Soulja Boy.
    Soulja Boy just wants to be like Kanye I think. He cant rap and his words he spits are rubbish. Cant freestyle and when ICE T called him out he never called back. Ice T is a legend in hiphop by thw way.

    So if Soulja Boy was so good how come he did not diss Ice T back. He aint Hiphop for one and get ya facts write people about hiphop. Jimmy backing you. Anyways Im not hating on people here jsut saying what I think.

  10. Okay, for one, Soulja Boy did diss Ice T back. YouTube it.

    I DEFINITELY bump De La Soul, Nas, 2Pac, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and all them.

    But at the same time I respect Soulja Boy. That's just me.

    Why does everybody feel the need to take on this "old-man persona" about how long they've been on hip-hop and how they have a huge vinyl collection because they can decipher real hip-hop from "fake" hip-hop?

    For instance, take Afrika Bambaataa, THE GRANDFATHER OF HIP-HOP (I assume you know the man). DOPE-ASS beats for sure. But was he some lyrical wordsmith genius? I think not! Just a super-dope-ass DJ and beatmaker that shouted a bunch of hype on top of the tracks, and rocked crowds. But THIS IS STILL HIP-HOP. AND HE WASN'T A "RINGTONE RAPPER".

    Hip-hop is NOT always about the punchlines, metaphors, and lyrical prowess. You can't judge Soulja Boy in the same playing field as KRS-ONE, Rakim, and these other rappers. Because that's not what he is. NEVER did he say he was a lyrical wordsmith. If you wanna call him a "ringtone rapper", that's fine, but if that's the case, then 2 Live Crew and Digital Underground were "ringtone rappers" as well.

    And for one, KRS-ONE is a hypocrite. He likes to call himself "The Teacher", and preach what "real hip-hop" is (i.e. no jewels; no gangbanging; just peace, love, & unity; etc.), and when you look back at his album covers (including Boogie Down Productions CD's) from twenty years ago: NOTHING BUT dookie ropes (big-ass gold chains FYI), GUNS, and fighting the power.

    Nas has his niche; Soulja Boy has his niche; Kanye West has his niche; Common has his niche.

    They've played/are playing their special part in hip-hop.

    Again, no disrespect or hate to anyone that thinks differently.

  11. I see you put a lot of effort to this. But reading it just made me think worse of Soulja boy. But I still RESPECT ya for writting back.

    But Soulja boy is a RINGTONE RAPPER to me and always will be. He is killing hiphop Ithink. He will never be a rapper. As he is jsut a wanna be one.

    Peacee
