May be so, but I still think we shouldn't downgrade the intelligence of people who like Soulja Boy or 50 cent's "in the club", like someone else said earlier.

There are some bright ass children who just so happen to like them. That's my whole point.

Intelligence influences interest.


i consider myself fairly intelligent, and i done lots of stupid things like stick forks in electrical outlets, bang my head against metal lockers etc, Over intelligence, or intelligence thats not properly challeged becomes dull, whereas stupidity is entertaining, but i have enough intelligence not to dwell in stupidity but rather have stupid moments

That's more like "aware" Hip Hop. They're more willing to address the problems of society and whatnot. But lemme ask you this, if a kid who has a 4.0 GPA liked Soulja Boy (which I've seen before), what does that make the kid?

First of all, the first comment was not meant as an insult to your mother, my apologies. I honestly meant it generally.

Secondly, how about this: Find me a kid who can't do math that is interested in integral calculus? No? What about someone who has no clue about the US Govt. who is interested about Sen. Clinton's political agenda? No? A poverty stricken kid in a third world country interested about Stock Marketing?

Would someone educated about the negative effects of drugs and smoking be more inclined to be inclined to become a druggie?

Not to say that intelligence is the only influence on interests because it isn't, but it does have a heavy influence.

Indeed it does. And you said what I was looking for you to say, which was that intelligence wasn't the only influence. Now we're on the same page.

Being aware by definition is being knowledgeable about what's going on--a form of intelligence.

GPA does not equate to intelligence. And I would seriously question his/her intelligence if the kid likes Soulja Boy in the first place.

Edit: Never did I say it Intelligence was the only influence to interest. I merely said it did influence it.

Game's One Blood Remix for example

Houston & Texas in general is starting to unite

BunB - Draped up [remix]
Trae- Swang [rmx]
Chamillionaire- Wont Let u down [rmx]

o yeah & i cant forget DJ KHALED WE DA BEST, WHOOOO WEEEEE NIKKAAAAA!!!!

: PP nah jk.. i wish

Mm i'm just gonna bet my money on Nas. He's the best mainstream rap artist out there currently. But to be honest though, i don't see the revival of the hiphop movement in today's world. It'll never be as glorious as it once was on the 90's

Maybe not, but the least these artists can do is make it as glorious as possible.

Then again, what WE think is glorious and what THEY think is glorious are two different things.

True, true. I believe hip-hop will be just fine. We don't need to worry about the materialistic and "rap crap" stuff that people overate...heck, if they like it that's their opinion and not our problem. We should just let people like what they like instead of trying to "force" others into a fixed set of what hip-hop "should" be. Some southern people like crunk and snap dances, some norcal people like hyphy and thizzin, some socal people like hardcore 90's beats and krump and some eastcoast people like club beats and baltimore house music...that's the way it'll always be.

Hip Hop is slowly climbing it's way back...........it's still in an ICU state rite now, but it's slowly regain itself. Nas said it himself in a recent XXL magazine interview..........


"The marketplace is bad right now. If you want to do big, real business, you’ll wait ’til the market gets better. That’s not my mission right now… Since I said “hip-hop is dead,” I think a lot of niggas is starting to take this shit serious. It ain’t about sales no more. When Kanye killed 50, it was to show you this shit is about something real now. No diss to no rappers I’m talking about right now, but it ain’t about just selling no more. I said hip-hop is dead, and if that helped, then I’m a bad muthafucka. You can’t take that from me. And I feel like this record is the next chapter, going into something bigger. It’s a recession… People are going back to being humble again. Because everybody is not gonna get a big multimillion-dollar advance."

"People do what they do. I ain’t knocking nobody. But I know one thing: This recession that’s going on—everywhere, not just hip-hop—is gonna produce better artists."

- Nas


QFT.........we'll be back, most defintely

Why do people rely on NAS to give us guidance on the hip hop world........yes he is lyrical and dis and dat but damn......his opinion is just the same as the main audience of people who believe hip hop has went on a decline........of course NAS realized rap was bad because he is old as hell and he has been in the game 20 years!
