    Soulja Boy should just quit for the sake of Rap's image these days...full of these fake fools that would get ripped apart if they started up in the 90's with the real players like Big L, Pac, Biggie, etc.

    That's what I would like to do when I get into producing and all that. Recruit guys with real talent. The way I see it though, is that the new guys have to battle these fake ass rappers, so that the better talent can take over. Remember that rap has been a competitive genre since its inception. Right now nobodys battling because they're all bitch ass *****s. No competition means no greatness. That's how you get better, with competition.

    Lupe is cool, just that he doesn't have that presence like a tupac, Nas, or Biggie. Plus he's gonna call it quits pretty soon, right? We need emcees that want to stand out not just blend in with the crowd.

    The thing I see is that there are no leaders, just a bunch of followers. Most rappers out now are being told what to do by the label.

    exactly...I actually TRY to look on limewire for battles of the recent guys to see if they actually have some battling skills....Eminem has some...even that Chinese dude Jin had some and I see these vagina's like Soulja Boy getting paid millions....makes me want to puke....I can make a mix tape with a beat and say "I bang bytches" and it can actually sell millions. LMAO

    This is why I think 50 cent is the most over rated rap artists in the world. He has maybe 3 or 4 songs that are worth lsitening to were he deosn't talk about his magic stick and actually talks about the streets...or a little bit about it atleast.

    What the hell has happened to rap and hip pop? Nas was right...Hip pop is dead and it's all staying 6 feet under until someone digs it up again.

    Rap has gone from the street life and struggles to the glamor and glits that don't give a shyt. Every rap artists just raps about the girls they have been with....as if we don't know what a Ho is???? As if we don't know what a groupie is???

    Unbelievable...I'm white and I actually have the same idea of recruiting guys because I know you can't get worse than what is out right now.

    Yo SLY...I support you 100% in getting real talent out here...please help us!!! lol

    You feel strongly about this opinion, since it is the second time you bring it up. Let me bring back your first post on this topic so that I can discuss it further.

    Especially since overrated rappers like Nas and Jay-Z are hogging up NYC's image and not letting anyone else take the spotlight.

    Thats why NYC fails in rap entertainment.

    Dudes in the South take turns being on top of the record sells.
    My question is why would Nas or Jay-z let other less qualified rappers take the spotlight?


    Here's an example:


    Metro, if you were the king of BX, would you step down and let up-and-comers take over? Even if they were less qualified than you to rule?
