80 Reasons You’re Not A 80’s Baby

Old School

People always ask me to define “80’s Baby”. What does that mean? Do you have to be born in the 80’s? To answer your questions, 80’s Baby is more of a mentality. A slightly fucked up-cutthroat-entrepreneur-ish fuck you old school niggas y’all stuck in the 80’s mentality. Therefore I’ll give you 80 examples of what the non-80’s Baby would do. Here’s the first twenty:

1) You brag about not liking a rap album in years

2) You know who Jarobi is

3) You don’t understand why Young Jeezy is popular

4) You know who Gail King is

5) You don’t have a myspace page

6) You have a myspace page but with no picture. It makes you look like a child molester

7) You own a Roots album

8) But you don’t own a Gangsta Grillz

9) You cant appreciate Diplomatic Immunity for the Opus of ignorance that is was

10) You shave your own hair and don’t go to the barber

11) You religiously follow YN’s Break-A-Day

12) You say things like “Record Sales Don’t Matter!!!”. Loser

13) Getting tickets to that Tribe comeback tour?

14) You get mad when people say Lil’ Wayne is top 5 right now

15) You don’t “own”, “run” or not the “CEO” of a small side hustle company

16) You don’t have a blackberry, sidekick, gmail or any other form of communication besides your cell phone

17) You DJ but won’t give up your vinyl for Serato

18) You’re favorite rap album came from the Native Tounges camp

19) You mastered Reganomics

20) You saw New Jack City in the movies

      Are you people stupid? Half the examples are valid but the other half are the exact opposite. To be an 80′s baby you had to have been a kid durring the 80′s it is not a state of mond and if it was you obviously don’t get it.

  • thoreauly77

    i guess i am a typical eighties baby. so i suppose a nineties baby (you) is actually just a self-obsessed, cynical and jaded asshole willing to fuck anyone for a buck? sounds like a whore down on hollywood and vine to me… oh and if any artist reads this, beware sickamore as he obviously dont give a fuck aboutcha (saigon, LB, etc…)!

    80′s baby here to tell you Sickamore is slippin no baseball refrences

  • NoMamesBuey

    Praising the mediocre MC Lil Wayne as the top 5 MC (WuTang alone has 5 dudes better then this bitch-made), while simultaneously shitting on Tribe makes you a MORON and IDIOT, whether you were born in 1968 or 1993 or anywhere in between, WTF.

    Objective music fans can appreciate good music regardless of when it was made.

    As far as record sales don’t matter being “losers”, then I suppose Sickamores favorite “top 5 all time” “musicians” must be Vanilla Ice, Hammer, Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys (enache), & Puff Biatch. All of these dudes went like “diamond” over 10M sold despite having little or no talent

  • CHICHI

    I THINK I’M CLOSE BUT NO CIGAR LOL! DANG AND I ALWAYS CALL MYSELF AN EIGHTIES BABY, NOW YOU HAVE ME THINKING TWICE. YOU HONESTLY THINK LIL WAYNE IS ONE OF THE TOP 5 ALIVE?

  • the dough

    Nice image. I may or may not be an 80′s Baby, not really sure yet.

  • Vyndizzy

    i dont get this…

    i am an 80s baby… but almost none of what you said applies’.

    If any, you seem to be refering 90′s babies… with a segment of 80′s (87+)

    even my 17 year old brother would rather like to go back and listen to our classics and today’s(and he did not take it from any of his older bros.)

    i think this one Blog here… is the FLOP OF THE YEAR, with a certified degree in whackness.

    F.O.T.Y.

    FUCK SICKAMORE AND FUCK 80′S, LIL WAYNE AIN’T TOP FIVE

  • Abner C.

    Why are people so defensive … being an 80s baby is ok … and record sales are important … no record sales no other record get produced (thas including Tribe ones) lol

  • king joe

    lmaoooooooooooo guess am a 80′s baby

  • http://www.myspace.com/specialopsbez B-EZ

    and i dont think sickamore doesnt care about artistic integrity (please dont prove me wrong son), its just that he recognizes the importance of it AND record sales in maintaing an artist’s career these days.

  • Danja29

    uh-ohhhh… the bitter backpackers are gonna be maaaaaaaaaaad as FUCK.

    So can one be born in the 80′s and not be an 80′s baby? You know, we do have alot of 17-year-old “hip-hop experts” out here who get on the internet holdin’ on to eras they didn’t even experience.

    and from a person born at the dead-end of the ’70s and raised in the 80′s-early ’90s… Lil’ Wayne IS top 5 as it stands right now.

    *looks fwd to the other 60 reasons*

  • Danja29

    oh, and sales do matter, purists. they might not automatically make a rapper great, but don’t kid yourselves- they matter like a muhfucka. and even your favorite underselling artist knows it.

  • eauhellzgnaw

    you don’t have to privilege “old school” rap (for young bucks like you, this somehow means anything before 1997), but the fact that 80s and 90s babies have a very limited knowledge about rap and delight in their ignorance is largely responsible for the shit mound that popular rap has become.

    Oh, and you look like a vampire version of Nelly.

  • LAZERBEAM

    Weezy is top 5 FOR SURE, but you def do look like a vampire version of Nelly. Que lastima… you gotta respect the past a lil’ bit to embrace the future Sick!

  • the dough

    Eauhellzgnaw, I would hope that you aren’t under the impression that everyone born in the 80s and 90s is completely ignorant when it comes to rap.

  • LOS

    Hell yea, most of that shit true. Dont forget about TRICKING THEM HOES either. You know them older niggas love doing that.

  • LOS

    And Wayne top 3. Fuck what yall saying. He killin. Stop hating

  • 5 STAR X-E-Q-SHUN

    Ur the same dude that keeps proppin Cheezy, er, Jeezy as King of N.Y. — HUH?!?!

    SICK, U mean 2 tell us that U own a myspace page w/o ur pic or vice versa – no wonder U dont get any action!

  • http://www.Sickamore.com Sickamore

    You gotta take some reading comprehension classes 5 Star

  • DocZeus

    The fact that Wayne has failed to respond to Gillie Da Kid’s ghost writing accusations in battle form immediately disqualifies him from top 5 discussion. Lil’ Wayne has got to beat Gillie or for the rest career he’s gonna have an asterisk right next to his name.

  • http://Aol Jazz

    I was born in 1991 (15 yrs old) and disagree with everything this nigga just sad I listen to Nas,Jay-z,Lupe Fiasco,Kanye West,and I hate Lil Wayne.It don’t matter when you were born it’s what you appreciate.Hip Hop was at it’s best in the 90′s.My Space is just somethin to keep LOW LIVES occupated. Lil Wayne is a faggot ass rapper with no purpose,and Jeezy hasn’t said anything useful since the day he came to this game.

    SO IM GUESS WHAT IM SAYIN IS FUCK THE 80′s BABIES BIOCTH

  • eauhellzgnaw

    “Eauhellzgnaw, I would hope that you aren’t under the impression that everyone born in the 80s and 90s is completely ignorant when it comes to rap.”

    Of course not. I know some younger heads who aren’t like this. However, I think it’s very easy for 80s and 90s kids to fall into blissful ignorance. I think it’s somehwat of a generational thing and is not at all limited to music; for example, younger movie heads don’t know shit about older movies either, unless it’s “The Godfather” or “Scarface.”

  • NoMamesBuey

    ^Jazz just proved my point, read my earlier post. Objective music fans appreciate good music, regardless of when it came out, the musicians’ age, or their own age.

    Yes, it is a mentality. One that is specific to the eighties. Its called CRACK BABY. you are the first of a generation of crack head babies. 80′s baby is a POLITE way of calling youself a CRACKHEAD, but by reading your reasons you have listed(oh i bet it gets even better tomorrow in your quest to blog continually like bol doesnt already do that eight times too much a day, right?) the reasons any non-crackhead would be ashamed to revel in, it is obvious you smoke crack. YEAH!!! LETS REVEL IN THE POWER OF THE FORMATIVE SUBSTANCE OF OUR GENERATION!! rock rock on!!

  • DL

    lol that was hilarious, i was born in 86 but after reading that i guess im a 90′s baby

  • crackis great!!

    PART ONE of TWO

    You are a crackhead..err EIGHTIES BABY IF

    1) You watch FIGHT KLUB on MTV and enjoy it.

    2) The idea of a rapper who doesn’t sell drugs is lame and soft, and by default a “backpacker” or a “concious rapper”.

    3) You really think that Rick Ross has
    connections to Bogota.

    4) Your favorite artists have all appeared on Wild N Out

    5) Ringtones are a legitimate “hustle”

    6) You can’t knock the hustle, and any form of non-positive feedback, even if it is constructive criticism is either jealousy or hating.

    7) You admire Dame Dash’s suave business skills, and the fact that he hangs out with Mick Jagger’s daughter impresses you.

    8) The first mixtape you ever bought was in fact, not a tape, and also did not involve any sort of mixing, just downloaded songs put in a random order.

    9) You have bought crunk juice, sizzurp or pimp juice, but not as a joke or as a move of irony, but because you were either thirsty, or up all night partying and the “energy” in the drink could help you stay awake the next day at work.

    10) Being rude, obnoxious, ignorant, disrespectful and bratty are all considered good qaulities that merit encouragement and deserve to be flaunted and championed.

    11) You think that you can sell dope forever.

    12) You say things like “I don’t hear a single”

    13) You think that Lil Wayne (or any artist with a Lil or Young in front) is a legitimate artist of the highest caliber with poignant and relevant things to tell people.

    14) MTV cribs is your favorite show.

    15) You “own”, “run” or are the “CEO” of a small side hustle company, but fail to realize that you are the only one who believes in the “vision” of that small side “hustle” company as being an actual legitimate organization of real business, not just an imaginary, vanity pipe dream with no office or staff.

    16) You can’t even go to the grocery store without some ones thats clean and a shirt with a team.

    17) You feel naked without an ipod.

    18) You’re too young to remember NWA and when Fifty Cent is repackaged as a solo version of NWA you really do believe he is the future.

    19) You do not think Kanye West is confused.

    20) You saw a Nick Cannon movie in the theatres and enjoyed it.

    21) You bought 50 cents book and treated it as if it were a textbook and contained information that would help you succeed in life.

    22) A woman with dark skin or nappy hair is unattractive.

    23) You think biting is cool, but “swagger-jacking” isn’t cool.

    24) Your favorite rapper has some sort of catchphrase or slogan that they repeat on every song.

    25) Your favorite producer yells his name at the beginning of every song he does for brand recognition.

    26) The “streets” dictate your opinion and choices in life, and you reference the “streets” as if it were an actual nation or country, and you were some sort of diplomat or foriegn dignitary who must consider every move with concern over how the “streets” will react, as if the “streets” were a superpower nation.

    27) Ghostwriting is okay for mcs as long as they write checks

    28) You own a pimp cup that you made with a bedazzler.

    29) You are totally unaware of any mc from a period before 1997 whom your favorite mc stole their entire style from, and any beat from that time period is fair game for modern producers to reuse.

    30) You have more than four shirts that depict either Biggie, Pac or Scarface.

    31) You have more money on your wrist than in your bank account.

    32) You follow the ten crack commandments like God had dictated them to Moses, even though you do not sell crack.

    33) You think rap, basket ball and crackrock are the only viable ways to ever make it in the world.

    34) A live show is not really as important as a video to you.

    35) Your artist considers a strip club as an audience to keep in mind when making a song.

    36) You don’t know who prince dejour, big lez or joe clair are so you think Mad linx is a good host.

    37) You consider freestyle fridays a good opportunity for an artist to create a buzz or gain exposure.

    38) You only know Xzibit for being the host of Pimp My ride.

    39) Paul Wall is your favorite White Rapper.

    40) You relate to Terrance Howards character in Hustle and Flow

    How about trying to be a man, babydick!!!!!!

  • rome

    Gillie said himself on xxl he never wrote anything for Wayne. And Wayne is using Gillies flow, (and using it better than Gillie does) but Jay-z Qoutes B.I.G line for every chance he gets and is still heralded as the best rapper alive. If you don’t think Wayne is TOP FIVE OUT RIGHT NOW then you’re fooling yourself.

Now if your asking what the hell has this to do with music and th blog? Well a real 80′s baby does it big like this and I had to throw in some sports refrences, Oh ya and cop the E White & Meech Wells Dow Jones Whiteout Mixtape E White is back with a force more on that later, West Coast !

And, don’t get it twisted Hova is still rapping as well…And for the sheer fact of the Dipset “movement” am I glad that I am not an 80′s baby.

    First, how is this dude allowed to run a column? Your writing skills are about as horrible as your mixtapes (This is the dude who did an exclusive w/ dylan from da band). Second an 80′s baby is someone born from early to mid 80′s and was actually a child during those years. You are making double negetives andshit with your list. Does elliot wilson actually pay these guys like Sick and Drama? Save your change. Most retarded post ever. Jeezy sucks, tribe rules, record sales obviously dont matter when it comes to a dudes lyrical skill cause if it did pharoah monch would be multi plat.

    Record sales don’t matter…shit, I’m a 70s baby, and two of the biggest artists, saleswise, to come out of that era were Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer…how can you place sales above artistry…big sales means one of two things…either you’re doing something new and original, and the public is feeling you (good); or you’re pandering to the public on some pop shit and watering down the culture on some teenybopper shit (bad)….
    Don’t forget that a rack of the top figures in the game are older cats…on the production side, you have Timbaland, Kanye West Pharell,and, on the mic, Snoop, Jay-Z, 50-Cent, Outkast, Busta Rhymes, Cam’ron, Eminem, Scarface, Tupac (RIP), Biggie (ditto), etc., etc. have a bigger footprint on the game than fucking young Cheezy ever will…shit, even LL been doing it forever…the non-80′s baby list is like a who’s who in hip hop
    Fucking gangsta grills have been around before this year…you are not special because your young minded ass dickrides trends- if it were 15 years ago, your corny ass would be rocking backwards pants and an airbrushed denim jacket with a gumby cut…be a leader, not a follower….niggas like you are why hip hop is dying, you cornball, pump ya brakes, and drive slow, homey; 70s babies gave you the Low End Theory, Paid in Full, Ready to Die, All Eyez on Me, Edutainment, the Chronic, Doggystyle, Lethal Injection, Southernplayalisticaddillacmusic, Straight Outta Compton, Business as Usual, the Fix, Whut Thee Album, the Infamous, Enter the Wu Tang,Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Illmatic, Enta da Stage, One for All…All for One, Reasonable Doubt, and the List goes on and on…you could fill 100 CD changers with classics from 70s babies….holla back when your decade can produce more than Paul Wall and Dem Franchize Boyz

  • Angryman

    1) FK Lil Wayne being top 5 and you 90s babies that support him

    2) Fk Young Jeezy Weezy Sneezy whoever the fk they are…they SUCK

    3) Record sales don’t mean SHIT..it’s about the music. Something 90s babies can’t appreciate.

    Soulja Boy probably has more record sales than:
    Slick Rick
    De la Soul
    Grandmaster Flash

    I guess that means they’re all garbage, huh?
    FK YOU. Gay music listenin ass nigga!

    4)Yeah, I like the fact that I complain about rap. Because it ain’t rap. It’s pop music. Too many 90s kiddies confuse rap/hip-hop. What you hear on the radio is hip-pop. You need to go underground to hear real shit.

    5)Owning a Roots album is an honor, so shutup.

    6)FK Myspace.com Corny bullcrap. Who cares about making a webpage with glitter and a wallpaper background of some shitty “rapper”?

    Who gives a fk that you enjoy
    “keepin it real”
    “not giving a fk what others think of you”
    “chillin’ with my niggas”

    Fk you.

    7)You don’t need a damn barber to shave your head. Do that shit at home.

    8)Any one stupid enough to have a business card that says “(fill in the blank) Records” and have the title “CEO” or “President” deserves to get shot in the face.

    If your “company” isn’t pulling in multiple 6 figures of revenue sales, you’re no CEO or President of anything.

    9)Don’t hate on Tribe Called Quest

    10)Fk 90s babies

    “80s baby” is a term whose meaning got misconstrued, sort of like the term “hip-hop”. It originally meant someone who was a preteen or teenager in the 80s and actually experienced and participated in the youth culture of that time. That being said, those that were of age to be an “80s baby” in its original sense were mostly born in the 1970s and late 1960s.

    The term was misappropriated and adopted by those born in the 1980s with their ascension to adulthood. As communication is more about getting your point across than hard and fast rules and semantics and since the new meaning of the term is more prevalent at this point in time, we original 80s babies would do well to concede the term to our younger counterparts.

  • sean2647

    If You remember “just say no to drugs” messages then your an 80′s baby. I clearly remember Ronald Reagan but didn’t understand politics.

  • hey

    I was born in the 80′s and I don’t have a myspace, facebook or twitter. I know who gale king is, own a roots album lol, I more a fan of the Hot Boys Block is Hot lil Wayne rather than the Carter Wayne. I never mastered Reganomics, I was in a Dick and Jane club and but I never joined Just say No. Oh and I hate Jeezy’s music as a matter of fact I dislike most mainstream music from 1997-2006. I think my musical taste are more 90′s babyish.

  • the man

    this could work for 1990 too

  • Mephisto

    I thought these applied to being an 80′s baby.
    Boy was I wrong…

    But most of that stuff seem to apply to me.
