Lolicat;2105701 said:So he has some tracks where he isn't an awful person, wonderful. I still blame him, Biggie and a lot of others for the intensification of violence and gang culture within hip-hop, and the subsequent drift from political hip-hop. The thing is, Biggie and 2 Pac were both wonderfully gifted, which is what annoys me so much about the whole matter, they could deliver a verse like few others, but instead had to bury all that beneath stupidity because someone couldn't take a joke in the first place.

Oscar-Rio;2106201 said:. seriously. That was the life they were living. Thus, why they talked about it in such a manner. The rappers around in the last 10 years or so rely on fabrication and exaggeration. I blame the no talent hacks that over-glorify something they aren't truly involved in. I blame 50 cent and the likes of those idiots for what rap has become. And let's not confuse hip-hop with rap, they are, after all, quite different.
