Thats good. You said she listened to more types of music than you, what types of music do you not listen to? Country?

i actually do not listen to music that much except for rap haha. i like 80s and 90s rap, some 2000s rap (but not much), and some 90s rock and stuff. i really listen to talk radio whenever im listening to the radio, so my music listening is limited to things i liked before i discovered talk radio.

It is not hip hop labels, it is the entire industry. Some very big company's, bigger than any on the list, just service the catalog now. No new acts.

yeah, i've been listening to talk radio since i've wore out all of my cds in my rotation... i find npr pretty interesting and informative. even though i don't agree with any of the right wing guys on the am, listening to them is entertaining. i don't find sports talk or howard stern type stuff very appealing.

mainstream record labels arnt cool anymore due to the internet. because of the internet, more of the up and coming artists are from an indie background, which means they do it all themselves, so majore labels are no longer relevant. we know GBE AND TDE

A lot of them were just money-laundering fronts for gangs and the government cracked down on them, especially the bigger ones. Death Row was a Piru/Blood front run by Suge Knight, Murder Inc was a laundry service for Kenneth 'Supreme' McGriff's outfit, Rap-A-Lot wa run by the infamous James Prince.

I was not a fan of Mase when he was active. I thought he was pretty bad. But compared to the people now he's really good.

i think everyone was thinking that mase was good because of some nostaliga. i have nostaligia for that era too, but honestly he was terrible.
Dude Mase had some of the tightest laid back flows... he might not have had much substance but it was always enjoyable listening to him
