So I’m at a Christmas party and thinking that we’re going to just do ol’ karaoke thang’ again, but low and behold there’s a DJ. Now, I am thinking, “Ok, someone’s son got some equipment and their mom must have said ‘My son can do it’, when they asked did anyone know a DJ. I was so surprised when they had this party rocking!
Its dope to see folks come together and “Make it cool to give”. SALUTE to JAMES WADE and everyone involved.
Try these on for size. First up we got Mystery, straight out Cashville(via South Phili), just dropped a ill-ass mixtape, BLAST FROM THE PAST vol.1. Homie’s flow is killin’ it plus his choice of beats in right on point. In my very personal opinion Mystery could have been in a headliner in the Justus League(circa. 2002).
Man WTF!! Where is the music folks? I have checked all my mixtape sites and there is nothing worth downloading or buying. Can someone please do something about this? What happen to hip-hop because it is in a major downspin, I just want something to ride to. I can only ride to Gucci Mane so long I need another fix, but where am I going to get it from? I feel like a junkie in a drought; need the dope, but there is none. The hip-hop game is almost dead, if any one can save it, please do. These are just my thoughts, me, SWIRL not the whole SPEAKEAZY fam, just me.
MAKE MUZIC-SPEAKEAZY (PLEASE)
Ok look, I’ve have been listening to Southern hip-hop for long time and I am bored with it! Hip-hop is in a major drought. You can’t even count on a good mixtape anymore. Where are the real MCs, the real story tellers? I use to be able to get a good Southern album back in the 90’s; like 97-99, but hell I cant get that anymore. Somebody bring back the old NO LIMIT RECORDS, please give me an old OUTKAST album! I mean damn— what the hell do they talk about anymore? I need more than a nigga selling dope and fucking some chick they meet in the club. I know everybody struggles and that’s cool; I feel that, but not on every song? What happen to the slow rap songs like on that MAC album Shell Shocked? “Calling Me” which was a dope song. What about 8ball and MJG “Space Age Pimpin” or OUTKAST “Funky Ride” just to name a few? I need some substance in Southern hip-hop. To all the up and coming Southern hip-hop artist: PLEASE HELP ME, I’M FALLING ASLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!
Representing for Trill Ent. and the city of Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie is a common figure among most Southern rap fans. Lil Boosie went from being a “Who is that on that song” rapper to “Man you have to get their album” rapper. He’s known for fly cars, big chains, and alot of money, all of which gets him real street recognition in every hood. But all of that may be gone just as he was starting to get a National buzz. LiL Boosie got a 4 year bid for probation violation. With just two National albums under his belt the question now is: Who will keep his name alive in the streets?
Question or Open Topic- Why do rappers feel the need to do the same thing they were doing before they made it? What I mean is why still ride dirty if you don’t have to? Take Gucci Mane, Lil Boosie, and Lil Wayne for example all are successful artist that are in jail, going to jail, or just got out of jail for the same thing. Why? For what reason do they feel that they have to ride dirty with guns, weed, and other illegal items, when they already have strikes against them? The strikes being: young, black, and in the South. Why do they hire their homies or cousins to be their security, but yet they still feel the need to keep a gun on them? Why drive a nice car through your old hood smoking and having weed on you; to me that’s like asking to go to jail. Just go to the County and say “Hey, I want to be locked-up, please”. At some point we as a people have to learn the difference between keeping it real and just plain stupid. This is a cycle, and we will continue to fit the description as long as we continue to do these things.
