    I swear if this kid Chief Kief makes it in the game. I quit. I will forever stop listening to music alltogether. Come on people…first it was Yung Joc,Yung Berg, and Yung Buck….and now this guy? How low is this industry willing to set its bar? I mean the music produced and may i say “written” by this guy are terrible. I DO NOT COSIGN THIS GARBAGE. Please may we respect the hip hop flag. I feel every time we listen to these certain guys the hip hop nation flag is being lowered more and more until they will take it down and set it to flames. I’m sure that homeless guy with the great radio voice will be the next to make it in the industry. STOP DISRESPECTING THE CRAFT (and just in case you don’t know the ignorant people or listen to this garbage music in the first place WILL NEVER BUY IT because they are broke). Obviously I’m a little peeved.

    ive been listening to rap all my life and i was born in 75′. i agree with mr. turtle, half the shit nowadays is straight trash…fuckin lil b, cheif keef, meek mil, wayne…how come all the real rappers get no love on these bitch ass websites except for tech n9ne…slaughterhouse, brotha lynch, showbiz & ag, kendrick lamar, eightball..those are real spitters. im not a hater i just cant stand the way the whole art of hiphop has been fucked in the ass and twisted…and then when a real good album comes out , xxl doesnt even acknowledge it.. SHOWBIZ & AG MUGSHOT MUSIC WAS THE ILLEST ALBUM TO DROP THIS YEAR AND ITS ONLY A MIXTAPE, WHERE THE FUCK IS THE REVEIW..U CANT EXPECT THESE KIDS TODAY TO RESPECT THE ART IF XXL AND THESE OTHER SITES CONTINUE TO IGNORE REAL RAP. FUCK VANESSA STRAP-ON ON TOO SHE NEEDS TO BE FIRED!!!

      None of these so called ‘real’ hiphop websites even reviewed Mugshot Music and it dropped more than 2 weeks ago.
