    Fuck Ye and 50, there both posers

  • Beef

    Deezy get the fuck of 50′s nuts for one second and realize what you typed. Who gives a shit how much he samples if its good music. Why you think he was nominated for all those things anyway? He sucks balls huh? I aint sayin 50 aint good but how the hell does Kanye suck? You need to open your eyes to real hip hop.

  • Durty South

    Congrats to Kanye, but I don’t give ah flying fuck, fuck this hip-pop, and these fake ass rappers, who claim this hood shit, and live 2 hours away from the hood,(SNITCHING)and ya fans muthafucka

  • Cynic

    All I have to say is Kanye is the man and he made a sick ass video!(The artist has a big part of the video too)And its just awesome both actually but my personal favorite is “Stronger” but nice job on working with Hype thats a big move!And people said youd only produce!Ha Id hate to be those losers!PEACE AND ONE LOVE!!!

  • Manka Cat

    Yeah…great Deezy…cause 50 never samples anything…most original rapper since Kweli….
    Word to Beef. Who gives a fuck whats sampled if the shit sounds good. Dre flat jacked all but every beat he put out with World Clas Wreckin Cru. That was the pioneer days. Evolution in Hip-Hop is often caused by imitation. Would we like Jay if he didn’t try to sound like B.I.G.? Would Doggystyle have been as good if it didn’t proceed The Chronic? Get a fucking clue. Trying to sound enough like the last guy to get the fans attention but fresh enough to make them remember your name is the oldest trick in this shit. Word to the rappers who come out sounding totally differant than anything else and make it, but those acts are rare.
    Yo, Beef, this “Real Hip-Hop” shits gotta end though. Its all real Hip-Hop. Gangsta rap was the start, back when it was called reality rap remember? Technique reminds us of that. 50 is using a style thats more “real” in terms of Hip-Hop then Kanye ever has because 50′s sound has older roots in the industry. Lets not mix up a gentle, intelligent style of the art with Real Hip-Hop. It feeds of the word real, and its a great style, but calling it real doesn’t make it real. At least, not any more real that 50 Cent.
    Feed your brain homie.
    Peace.
