    “You don’t see the connection, Puerto?”

    Sadly, many rap fans don’t know anything that came before the Pac and Biggie era.

    U damn right I don’t know shit about DE LA Soul. I was born in 86 (80′s BABY OOOWWW). My DE La soul was the Blackstars and commons. I’m sorry that it’s so SAD that I wasn’t up on them back when Ninja turtles and Ghostbusters was my life.

    Na nigga I no about cats that were appeling to me back in the day. That my uncles/dad/cousin’s palyed around me at a young age. The Big Daddy Kane’s, Rakim’s, Geto Boys; shit even the Biz and tribe got play. IMO that DE LA Soul was wack and yes I later Listened to a few albums later in life it was still garbage but The song I like was the shit about the semi-fat bitchs. Nigga just because I don’t fuck with a certain group does’nt mean I don’t no shit about hip-hop. That’s just my thoughts, no more importrant or right as yours
