Like I've said before, I am not at all into the new West Coast rappers that are currently out.

 

Eazy-E, B.G. Knocc Out, 2pac, Gangsta Dresta, and DPG are my favorites. To put simply, they rap on a whole different level than new artists these days.

ah well dude nothins perfect but i know what you mean this decade its all hyphy but apparently this year should be a good year for Westcoast Rap so i hope what i've been reading is right but i guess if you do want stuff like back in the day you have to look out for mixtapes an stuff well whatever you can get ow and has anybody listened to the Makeveli 1-16 mixtapes there acctual previous unreleased 2 Pac tapes none of this T.I. and Ashanti bullsh*t so if you do want some decent Pac tracks have a look out for them i would tell you the site where to get em but its against the rules to advertise

Hey, man, welcome to the rap topics, since I failed to mention that in the other thread.

 

But West Coast rap has evolved along with the times, so you should be thankful for what we get now. Gin and Juice in its heyday was today's Chain Hang Low, only it has been immortalized through the hip hop culture. Mainstream rap, not only West but everywhere else too, is losing its sight of hip hop and its ideals. Only so long before we start talking about Game and possibly Ca$his as West Coast legends. wow.gif

Thanks for the welcomes guys.

 

Ganton: I have all of the Makavelli's. However, after Makavelli 8, almost all the songs are redone, rather than new Pac Material. Still good stuff to listen to though.

 

Beanmachine: I hate to say it, but I agree with you. It sickens me when people compare these new artists to some of the greatest rappers of all time. Don't get me wrong, I think Game has some ok songs, but for people to say as good as Dre? Or as he so puts it, "Dre's replacement"? Give me a break.

i agree with u both like people keep saying ow hes trying to imitate Dre an all this sh*t when hes not i've listened to The Documentary and The Doctors Advocate an most of his mixtapes theres no replacin Dre there or even imitatin him but anyway theres a couple of Westcoast artists that should drop an album soon Techniec i mean his mixtape may have been remixes of alot of stuff but it had that Old Skool Westcoast feel to it an then Hittman i hope he drops the 2 albums he said he was workin on in an interview with DuB CNN that guy is pretty lyrical hes got an album called Hittmanic Verses some of you guys should look for it sometime hes got some good tracks on it which sort of have that old Westcoast feel to it

A little more towards apparel, but my friend bought me an N.W.A. t-shirt today as a suprise. It was a triple XL, far to big considering I normally wear a medium. Though it's the thought that counts. It's pretty bad ass. Has this picture on the front:

Lol nice gift, man. Does it actually say "Greatest Hits"? That would be kind of funny, but cool gift either way.

 

@Ganton - Never heard of CNN, I'll probably have a chance of checking him out sooner or later. I think Game can definitely replace Dre as "the" West Coast artist of the day, hell in most respects he has. I just think that he needs to brush up on the lyrical side of things, he's already prove he can make the hits. I enjoyed the "Doctor's Advocate" track, so you know he can be sentimal and deep as well. Soon as he can cover all the bases, probably around his next LP(Dre will probably work on that too), I think he'll reach his prime and ultimately prove he's the real sh*t.

I have this pretty badass pink xxl hoodie with a purple 9mm facing right on the front.

 

I dont think pink is gay, I think it's f*ckin gangsta. Try wearin one with a white new era cap on ya head, and light blue jeans with big buckle belts. Just awesome. Only thing you need now is a phone and an iPod, and yous on tha way homie.

Hey, Illp., what's the reason you got beef with Game? Hatin' on 'em? tounge.gif Phat(wow I just said phat) beats on your tracks though, though your mic quality is somewhat to be desired.

 

@ Vito - Hell yeah, pink is thuggin' to the fifth power, whatever that means. cool.gif

No idea. See how I'm adding you, it'd only be fair... tounge.gif Just playin', man.

 

@Ganton - About Syke being on their label, I actually felt sort of betrayed, but not quite exactly. I mean, to go from riding with Pac and the West to 50 and G-Unit, it's sort of odd to me. But, then again, his rhyming scheme isn't exactly the most complicated either.

i have strong belief it was just a marketing hoax, west/east.

 

or maybe not. They were already talking about settling this argument once and for all.

 

but they'd end up gettin killed either way.

It was really just the media mostly. If Pac hadn't had beef with Biggie in the first place, you wouldn't see everybody else in coming into play, thus fueling the fire to whole feud. Plus, if it wasn't for his big mouth when he grabbed the mic, others wouldn't be stepping into it with Biggie, with others riding with Pac, etc. etc.

 

But yeah, Pac knew he would die young and Biggie probably knew it himself as well. Shame it had end like that though.

dude just a question why the hell do you have beef with him???

Ask Ras Kass that question haha. I heard his two diss tracks towards The Game and they both were sh*t. All Ras Kass did was call him gay, for god's sake even the name of the song was called "The Gayme". I like one Ras Kass song, that is it, it was off of a 730 mixtape. Besides that one song I don't think that he is a good rapper and I think that if Game responded with a diss track to him, Kass' career would be over. lol.gif Game is fire on diss tracks and mixtapes. His albums have been decent. I liked The Documentary, but I didn't really like The Doctor's Advocate, I thought that the album was too commercial rap oriented which sort of strayed from what The Documentary was like. His beef with G-Unit was all for the money, that's what I think as well. It was a marketing ploy for The Doctor's Advocate lol, in a few of his diss tracks towards G-Unit at the end of the song he would say "Doctor's Advocate, cop it when I drop it" or in Face of LA, a Mobb Deep diss, he goes "Everybody wanna know when the f*ck my albums coming out, whenever the f*ck I drop it.." Just my opinion on that.

 

The Pac and Biggie beef, I think that it was mostly media but they probably did have a good amount of resentment towards one another, I mean just listen to the diss tracks like "Hit 'Em Up" or "Who Shot Ya", there are some serious disses on those tracks. I think that if the media wasn't so involved in it things would not have ended up the way they did, it would have been just another beef between rappers. It could not have been that though because these were two rappers who many considered to be the greatest of all time, so I guess they felt that they had to make a big deal out of it. I doubt there will be another beef like that one, Jay Z and Cam'Ron, Game and 50, Jay Z and Nas, just to name a few, those are notable beefs, but they were no where near the level the Pac and big beef was at mainly because of the media. Beanmachine is right when he says that it was the media's fault for the issue becoming so big.

Biggie pushed any hard feelings aside on a radio interview soon before Tupac was murdered. It's not sure if Tupac heard it, but Biggie pretty much said it wasn't really anything, it was just blown up.

gta_player5 dude i think u got things the wrong way round about the Game albums thing The Documentary was way too commercialised if you ask me but The Doctors Advocate had more gritty beats a lil like Dre's Debut The Chronic but i get what you mean though the Documentary had some good tracks on it like Dreams, The Documentary, Put You On The Game, Where I'm From and Like Father Like Son but you've gotta see what Game has acheived In The Doctors Advocate because hes proved he's not needed g unit 50 cent or Dr Dre's help and speaking about Mixtapes has anybody heard about what the feds have done to mixunit those bastards have confiscated most of there Mixtapes and they've arrested the DJ's who run the site an that place was the best to find stuff when all the albums have gone dry an i'm bored of them

Anyone manage to catch that Game and Young Buck altercation on Youtube the other day? Man, Buck certainly showed how hard he was by standing up on stage surrounded by his thirty-and-some-odd goons around him. At least Game made the attempt to come up there, Buck was talking all the bull, yet I saw no attempt from him on actually swinging at Taylor. Funny stuff:

Come on if we're just posting videos without any discussion, we don't need a separate thread for sub-genre of the Hip Hop & Rap thread. And this was an old, old bump.
