    Lmao. That's how it is right now. People don't really stand for anything that is real. They go with the flow. Can't think for themselves.

    Gangstarr has got to be the greatest duo in the history of hiphop music. I got to see Guru live last year and if anyone gets the chance to go to one of his jazzmatazz shows should not miss it for the world!

    my fav Jeru's songs is el presidente with DJ Honda. i missed two times the opportunity of seeing him..

    Going to a live show must be hot. Never got a chance to see rappers onstage. I do hear that the energy and vibe of most shows is crazy.

    Ya I listen to Jeru and Gangstar mainly for Dj Premier.

    At this point i don't even listen to lyrics anymore, i just check out beats from producers. My friends from home rap, and are opening for KRS-One in New Haven. Seeing how most of their rhymes are funny but pretty stupid in the grand scheme of things i just don't care anymore. To me it's not that hard to rap and be entertaining, but very hard to write meaningful music. Most of the lyrics came from when we were smoking in a cypher. I'm assuming big time cats do the exact same thing. If you can write music while having smoke sessions, it is barely work....And if you put a club track to it, most likely you can get a lot of money off of it. I can see why artists don't care.

    I'm more into bboying now.
