I remember when I first started listening to J. Cole. In an instant he grasped a mind of a young man like me, dealing with certain problems I was facing at the time. I think about it this way because I’m listening to “Friday Night Lights" now. In his intro he says "What good is it to be the one, when your the only one who knows it". What I am getting to, is lately I feel like I have been coasting and I have so much talent and I’m just bottled up. I need to put it to use, because if you don’t use them, then god will take them away.
NP: “Play for Keeps” by B.O.B.
Man this beat is just ridiculous and the way he rips it is just epic. “There’s no debating when you let your numbers make the statement.”
NP: “Made You Look” by Nasty NAS
When this song comes on I get in the zone when I’m breaking.
How do you feel about the state of hip hop/rap music right now?
NP: “In the Kitchen” by Asher Roth prod. by Chuck Inglish
Man Chucky so nice on that MP-C!! Ash with the rhymes just killing it.
NP: “Keys to the Crib” by Rick Ross
This mixtape is one of my favorites right now it’s so dope. Rick Ross is that dude regardless to if he talks about the same thing over and over and over again!!
NP: “Dope Shit” by Asher Roth
Look this song up it’s so chill. If I smoked I would definitely be blunted out listening to this. But I don’t so I will just use my ears to feel good!!
The five elements of Hip Hop so to speak are Emceeing, DJing, Graffiti, Breakdance, & Beatbox. What I am getting at, is that if someone loves graffiti and never drew a day in his life you can’t knock him for it. It’s an element of hip hop and you have to love it as a whole. It’s like saying you love your girlfriend because she has a nice ass and that’s it. No! you love her on an intellectual level, as well as loving her for her body. Just an analogy I had to throw in there, because I feel that some people don’t dig the fact that people who aren’t graffiti artist can’t love it just as much. Respect the art as a whole, lets not be two dimensional. Whats your thoughts on the topic?
Alright I have a question for my hip hop listeners: “What is your favorite Lupe Fiasco song?”
Mine is “Kick Push” whats yours?
