    people still watch bet?

    people still listen to rap?

    people still care about award shows?



  • AllDayGB

    ^What the fuck you doing on a hip hop blog if you don’t listen to rap though?

  • IVoteNotToVote2012

    there’s a difference between “rap” and “hip hop”

    90 percent of the stuff on this site is crap just like bet and award shows, but i do fish for the 10 that has substance and is worth a listen

  • iVoteNotToVote2012

    black people should be ashamed if they still watch bet and listen to rap

    talk about mind manipulation

    you really have to be naive in 2012 to still be a victim of it

  • qw


    lol @ you visiting sites just to look down your nose on other people’s lives and condescend to people’s interests. your life must be a joke. mom didnt give you enough attention? go do something you fucking loser.

  • fuck iVoteNotToVote2012

    stfu fool!!!!! ^^^

  • IVoteNotToVote2012

    just because it’s produced and consumed doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a negative secondary effect to the community and society

    rappers made their money

    the community continues to suffer

    you sit there with your headphones on all day listening to the crap and after 5/10 years have been indoctrinated in ways you never thought possible without knowing it’s happened to you

    i love being “manipulated”. I also love my job my family the music i listen to and the hobbies in which i participate. “manipulation” is awesome. thanks for stopping by OUR site to tell us how much you hate the fact that we love what we do.

    dope performances btw.

  • IVoteNotToVote2012

    take a look deep inside yourself and reflect on what i say

    forget about the gimmicks, judgments and what anyone else thinks

    do you think listening to this crap in a direct way for multiple hours of the day leads to a healthy and stable way of thinking and lifestyle

    im sure if psychologists put together a study there would be trends and evidence to show you how much your poisoning your mind

    illuminate it

    open it

    free it

    the future depends on it

  • Frank

    Nice performances. Looks like everybody had a good time.

  • Atlantic Sea Child

    LOL AT 2chainz piano skills.
    i love juicy j man he’s a beast lol


    most of the cyphers suck

  • ohwell

    wack performances, nothing special AT ALL

    it’s to be expected though

  • boogie

    Fat Joe didn’t seem like he enjoyed 50’s performance.

  • @IVoteNotToVote2012

    you care so much about what these ppl listen to and tell them shit like you know anything yet you dont vote. unless you’ve documented the actions of the candidates that are being voted for, your inaction to not voting makes you nothing but a rebel without a cause. u obviously arent doing anything about the lives of the ppl or state that the US is in other then working ur worthless 9-5 job, finishing public school, or working towards a degree that has less than a 20% success rate of anything after it.
    stop preaching your bullshit to the masses faggot

    That Chris Lighty shit made me wish I was back in middle school though.

  • E daniels

    all this music is devilish and i hope everbody just listen to this music for the beats because it is nothing inspring about this music at all just teach your kids (the next generations)that it is more then life then sex,drugs,and big butts.remember those stars on tv are not leaders you look up to always have your own mind like martin luther king, rosa parks, malcolm X observe people and keep it moving dont be one track minded god bless

  • @ vote

    So what have you been listening to for the last 10 years to “manipulate” you into such a retarded douche?

  • IVoteNotToVote2012

    they want you to vote.

    you do it.

    just because you do it doesn’t mean it makes it right.

    you’re voting for puppets.

    you’re voting for a system.

    enjoy it.


  • Illymcnasty
