So. like alot of people, been listenin to Tech N9ne since 1999. I love his music and love the way he adapts without ruining his character and integrity. do i like ALLLLLLL his songs, no. but for the most part he is the best rapper and talented rapper and entertainer i ever seen next to michael jackson (entertainer).
Alot of people dick ride, some say they are not, but its obvious who does and who doesnt, no need to point fingers. i dont call any particular people on here dick riders, it is what it is. i havent been on in awhile because it seems people argue alot on here, opinions are opinions and aint nobody gunna agree with everyone 100% of the time. Bottom line, everyone on here is a TECHNICIAN and thats why we come here, to discuss Tech N9ne and other rap/hip-hop topics and other random things at times, and to support this man and his movement and be apart of his climb to the top.
Thats my thoughts as of late on Tech N9ne and this here forum.
Now, the state of hip-hop has been bothering me alot latley and for awhile i thought i was trippin and it was just me until i read some stuff on here and when some one mentioned Tech n Cognito sayin "i miss the way hip hip use to be" or sumn along those lines. and its obvious. Rap is and has been changing. I miss the way it was. From like 1993-2007ish rap was a ceratain way, and although it did change, it remained the same, just grew. But all of a sudden, it seemed after the whole hyphy movement died downthis new wave of posers came in....Wack skinny jeans and and mow hawks...WTF !? im all about originality, i mean, look at tech n9ne, but its all a commercialized FAD and im from the old school and dont care what anyone says, THAT SHIT AINT HIP HOP. PERIOD.
and if they do happen to have any skills, they didnt come from any background where they can spit some real stuff or issues. Just bred for radio and lil teenage white girls. and soem of the old schoolers who have survived and maintained thorugh all these chamges have changed to much and went to far into the commercialization. JAY-Z has survived and is still "on top" in the public, but hge has sold out and let money change him to much. LIL WAYNE, i always liked him. but i do not like his new material. i dont hate the guy, just aint feelin him or his adjustment to modern hip hop.
And the sad thing is is that all the og's are still spittin great shit with no recognition, like KURUPT, DAZ, XZIBIT, BONE THUGS (solo n group albums), ICE CUBE, DJ QUIK, E-40, MESSY MARV, DEVIN THE DUDE, BUSTA RHYMES, 8BALL & MJG, and i can go on. Its a shame the industry shut the doors on these guys when they are still doin theyre thing waaaay better than these radio punks and thyre music gets lil to no radio love....straight B.S.
The og's who still cool are EMINEM & SNOOP to name a few and it makes me happy when i hear them on the radio still because they my genertaion and still doin they thing in a big way.
and well, those have been my thoughts and i had to get em out since its been a minute since i logged in. these are MY OPINIONS, just xpressin em.
