    I never felt Jay. I like Brooklyn we go hard and dirt off your shoulder tho.

    If i had to picka fav rapper other than Nas itd be a tie between Mos Def and Talib Kweli. True lyricism at its finest.

    Tupac was a great emcee that influenced many throughout the world. But the only album that I've actually listened to completely was "strickly for my *****z". And also some other of his hits. Can anyone elaborate on his music and life? You know, like back stories and stuff like that.

    I know his mother was a member of the Black Panthers. And he was really close friends with Will Smith's wife when they were young, they went to the same school. That's pretty much all I know about him lol.

    Streets and jay, I actually have heard from the same sources. But being from NY has made me east coast biased. Didn't really try to hear tupacs or any other west coast mc.

    Im biased too. But west coast aint all bad. Certain sources (GTA San Andreas, memories.....) introduced me to gangsta rap wayy back, about 4-5 years ago. I respect the music, it really is good, but it doesn't impress me alot. Most of it has the mainstream vibe, like "Nothin But a G Thang". Don't get me wrong, i like it, but unlike east coast rap, it gets old much faster. It fades away. It doesn't have much of an illmatic vibe at all.

    However, one definite classic from the west: "Express Yourself"- NWA
    A song all of yall must have heard at least once in your lifetime. Never gets old. Instant Classic.
