If Im going to wake up early on release tuesdays and drive to hastings all yukmouth and crusty eyed and spend my hard earned money on cd then I reserve the right to critique the album to the most finite point I find myself content with.
With Tech I judge a lil harder because he is clearly not an "average rapper". In other words his albums better be doper than the average album just because Tech himself says so. I will hold strange music to its word and expect dopeness.
As a person who absolutely cannot live without hiphop for one day I take pride in more than just an ipod full of gigabytes. I still actually buy cd's and I collect them. So when something is wack Im pretty pissed about the money I just wasted, when something is dope I consider my purchase equal to an expensive baseball card for the collection so to speak.
So what Im getting better be dope or else im gonna bitch,whine and moan, especially if im paying for and supporting someone's expenses and family. That is our rights as fans who spend thier money.
actually to be a good reviewer it takes a decent amount of literary knowledge and writing skill. you could say that requires more talent than the average rapper. and i know a few reviewers that have sold over a million books. so what now?
