When I was young I wanted some fangs......and eventually I ended up getting them and I was loving just flashing them at people it made me feel hard and gangsta...lol...But overall do you believe its a necessity in the Hip Hop community to have big glitterati chains and teeth and how do you feel about? Also how do feel about the necessity to have a top of the line car or a car with rims?

This is how I feel on it, Not Your Average Thug-
http://profile.imeem.com/P19YMv/music/eqhwCTwU/wangleehom_not_your_average_thug/

I am not big on that stuff, but sometimes I buy a fake chain, can't afford the real ones, lol, and sport it, because some are tight. I tink Grillz they are neat, but some people take it too far. Since, it is jewelry, can it just be cleaned with toothpaste, for those who put them permanetly on? And, no offense, I have not see no girls look good in grillz, I don't think they were meant for us females. And, with spinners, they are neat, and decking out your car is too. But, I don't get that booming speakers thing, maybe because my ears can't take loud noises, sometimes, people take things to far. Some would rather take care of their car then their looks, where their car be tight, but they come out of it looking a mess, what is more important, you or the machine? I don't think it is a necissity or however you spell it, but it is part of the hip hop culture and there is nothing wrong with that, I just think sometimes, it goes overboard, when it shouldn't.

Yea I really like the way fronts look (grills) and I'm gonna get some soon. I also think fixing up your car is fun and makes it look better but of coarse people can go overboard with it as with everything. And for the record women with fronts are fucking hot!

See, that isn't bad, but every female I have seen, either it was all her bottom or top that had the grill, and it didn't look right.

Nah no need.. back in the days it wasnt that over the top.. then they had more attention to the music they made instead... of showing off their wealth like they do nowadays... Lol look at those damn teeth... its more comedy to me then a serious part of the Hip Hop culture.... i think Mc ing.... Dancing.... And Graffity/Art makes the hip hop to the culture it is...

Well everyone "guy" wants to have a top of the line car simply because it makes us feel rich and for some of us we can easily pick up girls just by parking our car right by them. Sorry but thats just how some females are in the year 2000. Grills is not a neccasity. Southern raptures usually get it because it is apart of their culture and most of the east coast rappers dont have grills in their mouth.

Well i always have to think of this kinda topics when i hear an old song of
Leader of The New School... Busta drops a line wich says the next....

Rap is Buisness Music...... Hip Hop is Cultural music....... Thats why modern graffity.. is part of the hip hop scene same as breakdancing and Turntablism an off course Mc ing..

Then i will say we have to divide it in 2 ( Hip Hop - Rap )

So as far my opinion goes.... Rap Artist think its a necesety.. cause they are a product they want to exploit to make big money.... And show off their wealth with who has the biggest rim... who has the heaviest platinum necklace.... lacking the intelligence in the music... since they only want to make money and be the man.....

I think that in Hip Hop this IT IS ABSOLUTE NOT A Necesesety.... in hip hop is from the heart about the music... and mostly apart from some gangsta stuff(west coast off course lol).. intelligent in the verses Mc ing about what is going on all around... They make the music cause they love it and deliver a messagei think its not cause they want to be a hot shot and show of their platinum shit (and be cool cause they have it i dont believe that ...)

so be real..... for 90% i say.. NAS is right.... HIP HOP is dead... most stuff u hear today is rap... With all the bling bling that comes along with it..... That way of promoting/ being interresting... isnt very old... REally since maybe a year of 10 its hot to Have a Fat Whip and Some more bling

So in my eyes this has nothing to do with Hip Hop... its certainly a RAP THING agreed :p

Graffiti IS an art form.

Art is art, no matter where it's being displayed or who's doing it.

If painting on a canvas was a way for gangs to mark territories, would it still NOT be art?

Yes gang violence is wrong. And yes the concept of "marking gang territories" is wrong too.

But let's get away from that concept, and just look at the art itself, ya know.

I'm glad you're speaking your mind about this, but graffiti is definitely art.

I was just simply expressing my feelings now that I have read about it....i'm educated I understand.....not ashamed to say I was wrong about it......no need to offend....I even take into what NegroSaki said about it.........that was just my shortcoming and my stereotype and I apologize.......so back to N****** and Grills!!!

I believe that the South was the number 1 inspiration for this but of course the chains and shit come from Up North rappers........I mean truthfully I like it........but there is a time to put a stop to blinging and showboating!
