Same here. I was surprised with Born Sinner when it came out. Maybe cause I got so disappointed with Cole World. And Em hasn't been the same to me since MML1.

@nelomaxwell:

If it was within the last few years, you probably did see them. Korean music has been getting somewhat more popular ever since PSY hit it big. The group usually shows up on MTV International, because their one of the most popular groups in Korea.

He is a very good rapper. Though, he gets a lot of flag for being in Kpop, and making very poppy songs. But, he is by far one of the best Kpop rappers. However, If you know Kpop rapper, you'll know that's not really much to say. Their rappers are as artificial as boy bands (probably because they are boy bands). Most of them become the rapper of their group because they couldn't sing.

This is why he's seen as being as great as he is. He came into the industry at a very young age (I think he was either seven or nine); started out with a love for rapping. He tries to live up to American standards by being original, writing and producing his own music, and such; which is a big thing for an young artist in South Korea.

He got old just like everyone else. They should just chill, produce and scout talent.

@yung_ancient_one: FBD is a single for High Times. I think the reason Dro stayed with Grand Hustle so long, is combination of what you said. He is extremely loyal to Tip and (imo) I don't think he cares about being a factor in Hip-Hop.

Yeah could be both.

Hopsin sucks and he's always dissing people. I find him incredibly annoying.

WHat? Nah its cool. I don't think he really "dissed" him but whatever. Have you heard the track yet? I don't find Hopsin's disses anymore different than eM's disses. They both just like to poke fun out of celebrities or in Hopsin's case popular artists.

I think his 5 Fingers was better then Papoose's. I liked Papoose's alot but when I learned he was just using lines from his mixtapes, I was kind of disappointed. I think Brother Ali's is genuinely improvised.

He wasn't necessarily wrong, but he worded it like he was dissing NY. He said something like "I'm not dissing New York, but if there's a problem you can see me." Or something stupid like that. Regardless, he's a part of the problem and he really has no authority on the matter.

It's really not as good as I first thought it was... I mean there are glimpses or Eminem's classic flow on it... but the majority of the album is average or bland to say the least.

Anyone know what song this is?:

I am the stone that builder refused

I am the visual

The inspiration

That made lady sing the blues

I'm the spark that makes your idea bright

The same spark

that lights the dark

So that you can know your left from your right

I am the ballot in your box

The bullet in the gun

The inner glow that lets you know

To call your brother son

The story that just begun

The promise of what's to come

And I'm 'a remain a soldier till the war is won

I know this is a little late, but do people think of Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album?

It's definitely not as good as his older stuff but I was listening to it again and I think that it's pretty good. I think it's his best album in a long time (topping Blueprint 3, Blueprint 2, maybe American Gangster, Kingdom Come), excluding Watch the Throne.

@superstay: In the 90's, the rap scene was dominated with hardcore rap. Wu Tang was perfect for that time and became very successful. Plus it was rare for an rap group to feature so many members that were recognizable even in their solo roles.

They did a lot for the underground and New York hip hop scenes. They invented their own sound and style, I mean could you imagine how people reacted back then to hearing samples from Kung Fu films in a hip hop song? That first record was an absolute classic, and the people like Kanye West, MF Doom, and Odd Future would have had significantly different characters if it had not been for the Wu.

I will say, though, that none of them are GREAT rappers. Good, but not great.
