    Haha man i actually like that beat more than the original. I think Nas' speed is iight. Nothing too wrong with it. Nas and Lupe should collab on Lupe's last album

    Yea they should. Still can't believe he's retiring at such a young age. Yo, the beat on it aint hard to tell had a sample from one of mike jackson's songs.

    I know man, especially since he was considered to be the next vanguard of hiphop.

    Oh it is? wow i didnt know. Like i mean its good and all. and the rhymes are dope forreal, but it doesnt stick out in my mind. Kick Push's beat of one of my fav beats period.

    Illmatic is King
    Lupe was supposed to be future king IMO i dont think many can touch him rite now.

    Lupe is nice but he just doesn't command the attention that other great MC's do (did). At 19-20, biggie had a great delivery that made you want to listen. I really liked lupe's "superstar", but his delivery and presence was lacking. Not to take anything away from his lyrical ability, he's probably the second best MC when it comes to rhyming. Which says a lot. But that presence is not there.

    Co-Sign to the max man. Ain't nobody like NaS. He stays original, never selling out for the money.

    It just makes you wonder what would happen if 50cent didn't care about the money and actually tried to write lol

    See that's the thing, 50 has that hunger. But he just chose the wrong profession. I actually respect curtis jackson the man, but I do not respect curtis jackson the rapper. He's a great businessman. There's no doubt.

    The game itself is turning into a business.

    Its all about the $$.

    And he would've been a businessman if he didn't start rapping anyway.

    He seems pretty good. Hopefully he doesn't go commercial. Who signed the guy?
