    Hey YN… Lemme just ask and hope to get an answer your sleep deprived ass will be too tired to bullshit around:

    You seem to genuinely care about hip-hop’s days of yore. Why do you continue to pander to the base, destructive, wack-as-fuck elements of this industry?

    We know you don’t give a shit about half the artists you put in the magazine. Why keep doing it?

    It’s okay if your answer is “YN has a mortgage and I’ll ‘Yessa Massa!’ all day long if it keeps my wife and kids comfortable”, but at least say it.

    No disrespect,

    Just got home… Last call 230 here in DC, good to see you still goin at this yn… I aint caught up yet but how bout some lists:
    10 mcs
    10 albums
    shit like that… rile up the net

    I told you ill be here all 24… The REAL black Jack Bauer



    T.I. in his bathrobe??? I knew it… The tide is turning. LMMFBAO… *nolo*

    But I agree with most of the rest. This shit is classic. Good shit.



    I think Jay’s gonna leave. Why would he stay? It seems like everybody but Nas hates him there. Bad sign…

    The only Sugar Ray that isn’t > than “Money” Mayweather is the white group with the token negrus. As you can see, they’re dead.

    RIP Pimp C and Ike Turner. Long live the goon hand (if necessary).

    COMMANDO: “I told you Sully, I was going to kill you last… I lied!” LMMFBAO.

    nobody can fuck with ellen

    Fall back, Rey. It’s late.

      He’s right though. Jay is no GOAT and Wayne is no anything, if you really know hip-hop you know that. Sell copies of your magazine, that’s fine, you can do covers with Bow Wow for the next 20 years for all I care, but don’t editorialize about Jay’s GOATness, that’s nonsense. The man’s never made a top ten or even top twenty album. He had a five, six-year run. Then he fell off. That’s all.



    What are you listening to right now while you’re writing? I’m on Miles Davis.

    Shit feels like I’m making A Spike Lee Joint.

    My suggestion for one of these posts today is to run down your top 10 albums for the year. We get a lot of explanations about who’s career is in the toilet, or who deserves to get the cover of XXL, but not so much who you really think made a good album. Also, I’m curious why you don’t seem to ever vote in critic’s polls like the Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop (where hip hop writers have always been somewhat underrepresented, even when they send invitations to folks from all the big rap mags).

    is this going to result in an angry-ass Banner tirade? that could be funny.

    agreed on Snoop-Pain, but i personally still think he should do a remix with Weezy and T-Pain, with all of ‘em auto-singing. that shit’d be classic. here’s hopin’ the song keeps blowing up, it’s at #30-something i think.

  • The Dynasty

    LIke I said, just finished up last call at 230, after a night in the district we go to the late night food spot, some wanna be thugs get in a fight at the spot bringing the police all over the shit and forcing the rest of us to leave, and a serious conversation takes place on the way home… What is Hip-hop? Is that shit we just saw hip hop? Is keeping it real hip hop? Is not snitching hip hop? Is hip hop made for people not to succeed? I mean look at rappers, most people say rappers have lost touch with their hoods. So is succeeding not hip hop? Just maybe some insight from your pov?
    Also later on in the ride, shit got intense again when your boy Weezy F. came on and my boy called him teh best rapper alive. Now I want your genuine answer YN, no industry bullshit, just cuz the kid is selling you mags right now. Personally I cant take my friend seriously cuz he is the rap equivalent of a fair weather fan cuz he been on wayne for a little and before that it was dipset and before that it was g-unit and so on and so forth. I mean I can think of 10 rappers alive better than wayne (Jay-Z, Nas, Rakim, Ice Cube, KRs-one, Snoop, Eminem, Ghostface, ‘kast, LL) so I jsut want your imput

  • bldngblck
