When you start comparing Nas to Digital Underground or even Diddy... You really show your ignorance about the culture of hip-hop..."
"Some artist sell for air time. As a result, we have tons of *** played over the airwaves that is not even worth listening to."
I'm sorry, you're right. I didn't explain myself clearly. It's stupid to compare Nas to Digital Underground and music these days do suck. Big time.
Nas isn't that successful. He's not a great lyricist. And I argue that the only reason Nas is still relevant today is because he's big in New York. Or should I say he's riding the success of his early career, which was big in New York but hardly registered around the country.
And to all the people who say that because I'm not a hip hop enthusiast then I just don't get why he's naming the album Ni99ger. Well I think 90% of the country aren't hip hop enthusiasts and when they see this on the shelves of their local record stores they're going to think one of two things...
"Them *** really are as dumb as they look"
"Them *** really are self destructive"
And from the support he's receiving on this blog. I'd have to agree.
There is nothing positive about this ablum title. At all.
