    I wish all old school artist would come back (Black Sheep, Lord Finesse, Big Daddy Kane etc) bc the generation now sound like sh!t & and they don't even care OR know it. Their only rebuttal is "that's dat ole nicca sh!t" like that's saying something.

    Fuck all of you "new" rappers that think your saying shit. All a bunch of BITERS that follow the leader. Diamond is a LEGEND and makes better music than ANYTHING out today and on your bullshit radio. Chiraq.....killing each other over nonsense has nothing to do with HIP HOP...

      Your comment is exactly why is must suck to be a rapper/mc/producer. The fact that people such as yourself think that hip hop is only relevant for young cats is dumb. You don't see a shelf life on any other genre of music except hip hop. If a person feels they can still contribute to the game, let them do so. If you don't like their music or production, don't listen and move on jackass

      I would say Chicago rappers are some of the worst ever in the history of hip-hop music. Remember Crucial Conflict? And don't come at me with, "what about COMMON?" because Common is garbage too. Ain't no good music comin' out of Chicago. Chi ain't shit! It's just a bunch of low life petty criminals running around drug dealing and killing each other off. Keep it movin', ya homo.
