go liston to Paul Wall and fifty "i've-told-you-that-I-got-shot-nine-times" cent
I dont think theres anything wrong listening to 50. I think that because he made songs like Candy Shop and Best Friends, everybodies hating on him because it brought down his image of being a gangster rapper, but other than that, his music goes from a range of OK to Good.
I actually agree with GoBB on this one. Tupac is a legend. He might have been in prison for a while but that made him have time to write some good rhymes and improve on them. 50 Cent is the kind of guy that when he was underground was alright because he didn't talk about getting shot too much but mainstream executives came along and thought it would be a great way to draw people in....
Of course it's an opinion. You can't say "so and so is overrated", provide facts, and have that person officially labeled as overrated with no debate.
Of course it's my god damn opinion.
lol fatboy's opinion is blasphemy!
We have Tupac groupies on here now as well.
Of course he's overrated.
Everyone had thought provoking lyrics back in those days, hip hop was a lot more about 'the struggle' and not so much about materialism. Nothing Tupac did was ground breaking or Earth shattering, except for maybe the actor-slash-rapper bit.
Personally I think the best that ever happened to Tupac's career (as well as Kurt Cobain's) was him getting killed. I am probably older than most here, and I was into music when both of them were blowin up, and they were never legends untils after they died.
