Eminem used to be good, and he could probably be good again if his whole life turned to **** again so he actually has something to rap about.

Dr. Dre is never gonna release another album.... detox.... right.

Tupac has a new song out with Keisha Cole

Coolio..... lol

DMX.... all but done.

Busta Rhymes just aint what he used to be. The dreads is where he drew his power, he should have never shaved them.

I was also a fan of Notorious B.I.G., but I can't stand Sean "P. Puff Diddy Daddy" Combs.

But a hot new artist on the scene is Drake. You should check out his new album.

Drake doesn't have an album, yet.  He has a few singles, though.  He's got 3 mixtapes.  The third of which is mostly where his recent fame is coming from.

But yeah, Drizzy's good, but there's this Kid named CuDi you gotta check.  Also, Wale.

Rap hasn't been good since the days of Jungle Brothers and Slick Rick.  There, I said it.

I don't know much about Wu-Tang.  But I do know they ain't nuttin' to **** wit.

"Ohhh baby I like it raw!"

I've Kid Cudi but not too impressed with anything he's done that I've heard so far.

And I've heard 1 song from Wale (wall-eh) but you just reminded me to go look for more of his stuff.
My CD changer in my car is seriously lacking and in need of anything new to me.

While Relapse isn't as sharp as his first two LP's, he's still good and head and shoulders above the rest of the field.  Its funny to look back at those stupid enough to challenge him and how quickly fell into obscuty after he battled back.

RIP  -> ICP, Everlast, Cannabis, Ja-Rule, Fred Durst, Benzino, Jamaine Dupree....

And now Mariah and Nicky, Nick is definately done now, but Mariah should may able to crawl her way out.  Still though, my favorite diss is his second response to FortyandWhite.

Nick Cannon isn't a rapper and if he ever had a career in music it was over long before it started. Mariah will be just fine.

Eminem has been a shell of his former self ever since he decided to shove D12 down Americas throat only to watch us all laugh and walk away. Eminem doesn't hold the career ruining clout that he did several albums ago.

Even though isn't isn't as sharp as he once was, his average is still fantastic, people are just used to it.  Name one rapper who's defeated him in battle.  Until that happens, he's still the king of hip hop.  Jay z, Nas, Lupe, Fitty, and Kanye all know better than to attempt.  It'd backfire worse than "The Takeover" did. 

It is a brute fact that all bands/musicians slowly degrade over time.  Heard the new Beastie Boys, or Metallica?  From Led Zepplin to 2pac, everyone devolves.  But the great ones, still retain some of that magic, like those just mentioned and Eminem.  Especially in hip hop, people are lucky to stick around 2 weeks.  How many great albums did Snoop have?  One.

His new stuff is also vastly different musically.  Props to him for trying something new rather than recycling the same album.

talk about a necromancer! That was what I liked in 2003. Actually. i think my tastes have changed in the last 6 years, while I may still have those people on my playlist I always skip them. I will listen to some Biz Marquee every time though. I like more soothing music now. I like Squirrel Nut Zippers a lot, Panic at the Disco, Ludo, Beatles. Rap sounds pretty archaic too me, i sort of wish it would go away and be replaced by something new. I have listened to rap recently with a Cockney accent from "The Streets" and that still was pretty good. D average is totally on the money about band/musician degradation, but I'd extend it to genre degradation as well, but thats a much more slow thing.

Rap as a whole right now is pretty much crap, with just a few shining through.

Kanye is good at what he does, but he need to shut his mouth if he's not in the studio or at his own concert.
Regardless of what JayZ says, he in not the King of Rap unless you are talking about money made.

I say that my CD changer is in desperate need of anything new to me is because I can't stand the radio and the crap that they pass off as music 90% of the time.  There are just too many people talking about nothing for 4 minutes with a slightly catchy hook and knockin beat. I know hte radio has to work with what they are given, but there is just so mach crap to filter through to get to the decent stuff, that I just avoid the radio until I can't listen to the radio anymore.

Now having said that, someone recommend me something other than Wale that isn't degraded in value and style like Eminem. Seriously Eminem seemed like he was bored with rap and only made the last album I heard from him because he knew that it would get radio play and would sell millions. He even said his song was about nothing in the song and that they would still play it on the radio.... which is where i first heard it.
give me a break. He's not trying because he doesn't have to. He is at his best when he has something to rap about, and he seem to only have something to rap abut when his love life is in shambles.

Aha, i did list 2 emo-ish bands, i think they have talent though. Upon further examination it looks like Panic! is pretty much done for with 2 members leaving in July. I didn't mind their Beatles Tribute era one bit :P, Also, now it looks like theres a new band to like.  The Young Veins, but maybe they sound too much like the Beatles.

One type of emo did die (the "pop punk" kind; Hawthorne Heights, My Chemicle Romance and other garbage like that), now its a bunch of fake metal bands that call themselves "screamo" or "power-pop" bands like Hellogoodbye and Panic At The Disco. *shutters*

There is no excuses or amount of apologies that will make up for what he did. I disagree with lots of awards given out at award shows, but thats the nature of award shows. They aren't created to cater to my taste nad I don't remember anybody asking for Kanye to express his opinion. I'm not sure what made him think he had the right, even if it wasn't for his usual selfish reasons. That was Taylor Swifts moment and even though Beyonce gave her a second chance to at her moment, she still can have "that" moment back.

He could have easily won his own award and made that comment or simply walked over to Beyonce how was right in the front row and told her that himself, although he should have just waited till after the show.

Us in Psychology Academia were quite unsure what to make of Kanye West's stage disruption.  On the one hand it was a racial minority snatching the power from a racial majority.  But then again it was also a man expressing dominion over a woman.

When it came up in class (routinely) I said that I certainly hoped that Beyonce and Kanye were like... "together" and he was being stupidly romantic, because otherwise the only other explanations are him being drunk, racist, or both.

Not that I'm much into music, but events like this can have special insight into American culture and sociopolitical trends.
