    see people these kind of people listen to camron, i mean, come on dude, stop hatin, it aint cool, what the fuck u talkin about, south has saved hip hop in the last few years man, just shut the fuck up, and go wait on camron to show up in harlem, in like 5 years or so

  • King Joffy Joe

    Capostatus, you really should have kept that last comment to yourself. I mean, if that’s the way you feel about southern hip-hop, then that’s your personal opinion, but don’t go blasting a style of hip-hop that has dominated the entire genre for the last 4 years. Not unless you want to start a fuckin’ riot.

  • King Joffy Joe

    P.S. Who gives a fuck if you New York niggas started hip-hop? That was like, 30 some odd years ago and to say the least, that style of hip-hop has fell off dramatically. So, instead of disrespecting and bitching about the way the south rides, you should do your best to support what little buzz New York has right now, until that eventually fades away.

  • soul

    first of all Capostatus what in the hell r u talking about their are alot of different styles now not just new york, idiot. everybody got their own style they do from down south, west coast, midwest, and east coast. don’t hate on a region just because that’s they way they do it down there, u better start thinking first b4 u start putting shit out like that

  • Diike Joones

    Why yall keep having this gay ass, grill wearing ugly ass nigga in your god damn mag, yall gettin sloppy man, bring back some real niggas up in herre or you will loose another reader

  • Mako-V

    You have to admit that things have gone a lil awry since the South’s domination. Is it really hate when I say I wish someone else step up and take over cuz I’m gettin bored with all the same scene. It’s like E=MC squared. Make a club song about some girls and have a dance to go wit it. Even Pimp C said he tired of it and want some political rap to show it’s face. And dat nigga’s like GOD to y’all right?

  • yourFATazzMAMA

    Its like dis

    East-underground battle, keep it in your thought hip-hop

    South-Candy paint, trap and Shine hip-hop

    West-Straght gangsta hip-hop

    Mid West-Can be anything since its in the middle of the country

    I listen to what ever sounds good

  • noid

    is anybody really checking for mike jones?did his cd even come out?see thats what happens when a rapper comes out with a banger to lead of an album and thats the highlight of his career.i’m afraid chamillionare is facing the same thing.its better to be lukewarm at first and then get hot,rather then the other way around!

  • Vivek Saxena

    Dont be hatin on a nigga who made somethin for himself. Niggas from my hood and he reps it well


    You peep’s forget that we are all the same race trying to do positive things and make a living. If the rap game started here R there, it doesn’t matter. We have something that other race can’t dominate. So stop hatin on each other and be thankful we have a way out of the hood and can feed each other. Support each other.
