Whats Going On In Hip-hop? (small Boy Rappers Dissing Big Boys)

I found this article very interesting Weezy going at Jay-Z(lets 4get KINGDOM COME for now) Jeezy going at Nas. Its ridiculous

http://www.sohh.com/articles/article.php/10421

Jeezy questions Nas' street cred. There's apparently a "Nas and Jay-Z bite" bandwagon slowly spreading. In recent weeks, dudes who most would agree, have no business taking shots at the two classic lyricists, have been coming out of their faces with some outrageous statements. Yesterday morning, (December 7) Young Jeezy appeared on Philadelphia's 100.3 The Beat radio station to promote his forthcoming album, The Inspiration. It seems like he ended up promoting Nas' album instead. After sounding off on Weezy claiming to being better than Jay-Z, Snowman and the show's host's, Monie Love began arguing on whether or not hip-hop was dead.[Listen to the interview here] "You got Nas coming back saying hip-hop is dead. Who is he to say hip-hop is dead?" Jeezy offered with an insulted tone. "I might as well make a comment like Lil' Wayne then. Ya'll gon tell me I ain't doing hip-hop?" As "brilliant" as he is, Snowman then inexplicably lost his marbles and proceeded to question Nas' street cred in the heart of the "is hip-hop is dead" argument. O, K! "What you saying? I'ma respect his craft, and he ain't gon respect mine?" Jeezy asked. "Nas ain't no street nigga. He ain't been in no streets. Nas ain't did nothing he talking about, so what you saying?"

Who knew the Queensbridge Projects, America's largest,couldn't be considered the streets. Thanks for the education Jeezy. Wait, there's more. "Nas bus his guns? Nas been on the block? Do Nas have street credibility?" he continued. "Is any of Nas' homies in the feds? If Nas saying hip-hop is dead, I'm saying hip-hop is alive then. Tell him to get at me." No wonder Jeezy was his high school's debate team captain. He also attempted to use first week sales to prove his point during the argument. How does that Hov song go again, "Dig A Hole?" Well, apparently, Jeezy has been listening to his label's president. The argument ended with Monie Love putting her foot down. "It's dead," she firmly proclaimed. "Right there, I said it." The proud trapper then stormed out of the studio.

@ Christino

that was funny the way u explained it to naija fan

I understand it takes a lot to sell records but it also shows how talentless new rap artists are turning out to be. Other genres of music do higher numbers than hip hop right now and they do not talk about bussing guns or how they sold crack on the corners under a lamp post. Those other genres just let the art sell itself of course with all other forms of promotions. I think these rappers just need something more than their music thats why they keep shouting "nine shots" or "I'm from the streets" unfortunately we hip hop fans bought into that crap and now thats all they serve us. All these fake wannabe gangstas

^ roflmao Christino! You hit the nail on the head! exactly what i've been trying to pass across. especially that silly thug image sh*t. I can bet the only blood this mu'fuckin' 16yr olds have seen spilled must be at the clinics where they were getting immunisation shots.

@ naijafan:

what's so "yeah right" about what i said? Go through hiphop's history, that's enuff to school you. u know what? go learn about the Nelly vs KRS1 beef. or just about Canibus (that's even if u know who Canibus is) or Immortal Technique and his brief rendevouz with Sony Records. Just go learn about 'em. U'd now see what i'm talking about.

. . .and i believe that's one of the reasons NaS said "HipHop Is Dead". The art form's lost. What we have today is a bunch of perversion of true hiphop. No wonder 80% of hiphop's talents are underground, because when they try to go mainstream, them big silly companies tempt 'em to forfeit their integrity and talent on the mic, for the thug image. And the annoying factor's that them silly "fans" (groupie's more like it, e.g 50 cent groupies) are so gullible and swallow every bullshit churned out just to sell albums.

How did Immortal Technique put it down again?

"if you sell a million copies, don't count it as luck,

it just means a million people are silly as Bleep"

'nuff said.

Them silly asswipes (Weezy and Jeezy) need some hiphop schooling. Who the Bleep told Jeezy one has to shoot ma'fuckas dead, or push rocks off the streets to be hiphop? You see that's the silly mistake most of these wack cats make nowadays. Like one ol' skool rapper said, "put your mic where your mouth is ".

They all need to go listen to Talib Kweli's "Listen" and hear what he had to say.
