    Thats that original New York shit that the game is missing right now. I am so sick of all this inferior Southern garbage dominating our air waves right now. The South killed hip hop. How does hip hop go from Biggie being the best to Officer Ricky. The quality of hip hop has gone down because of Southern artists’ wack lyricism and flow. N.Y niggaz the nicest on the mic and everybody knows that. That’s why Jay-Z is still on top, cause he from N.Y. The South will never produce such a successful artist ever. Ever ever, ever ever!!

    • ???

      but jay z has been collaborating with most south artist then his own state??? yea ok

    • allyfe

    I feel like Def Jam as a power label has fallen off alot. Other movements got more thunder than them right now, GOOD music ( Kanye just signed Mos Def and Pusha T) and Young Money too . I def fucks with Sheek though. Waitin on that LOX album. Maybe I’ll try to catch him and Ghost when they in NY .Show should be dope.

    Sheek and Ghost are the weakiest in there group. Need some improven!! It’s good that ya’ll are teaming up. That bring something different to the table.

    • swype-matic

      I’m with u about Sheek, but Ghost the weakest of his group??? You foolin yaself, Ghost is hands down the best in the Wu

  • Sha

    I would like to know why they did not put VA on their tour Ghostface used to chill in the 7 Cities. They need to come to VA so I can get a ticket because I love GhostFace Music along with Sheek, they also need to add the rest of the Lox onto the tour. Jada coming here to VA soon but he ain’t even bring the rest of the click.
