A Shift In The Game

Sun, May 2, 2010 at 9:34 PM By: MirkeyWaters

I just wanted to say with Ice Cube's new joint about to drop,it's gonna be a major shift in the game. As you all know the "Dirty South" has held the rap game hostage for a good minute now. I've watch it's market and popularity dwindle down to the likes of a steam engine as opposed to a 350 rock with high octane gas. At the helm of this change is Ice Cube. We know it's a lot of "West Coast" artist dropping new projects in this new quarter. I predict a seismic rumble in the rap game about to occur that's going to shake a few trees to the point of no return. I once again have to reiterate that I'm in no way a cheerleader for any man. I do however love and support good music. Ice Cube is by far the most credible and lyrically brilliant dudes on the West Coast. I hear all the 22 caliber shots being fired at this dude,and the sources it comes from is the generation gap in the game. We're talking about someone born and raised in the 70's. So,his whole approach to the mic is from a tried and true formula. Most of your new dudes are 80's babies,so to me it's like a child trying to debate a point with a wise seasoned mind. I know age is nothing but a number in certain cases,but some of these dudes in my observation are likely to be crack babies. If you're from the block you know what I'm talking about. How many murders you gonna play out or brag about on a song? How many times do I have to hear about your rims,weed and women? I like to hear words that offer me as a consumer more than a brag track. That's not entertainment. To be honest it's hard to make anything artistically stick to the fabric of hip hop or rap when your mantra is all about the very things that destroy a market that was built on craft. The lot of the opposition to Ice Cube's presence is obvious intimidation and fear. I think you fools should be scared. I think the game needs a spring cleaning. So when you're still trying to keep it hot in your little region where you make just enough money to fool those you've fooled, real talent will always out do a novelty act. Real knowledge always reign supreme. Only a wrecking ball can bring down a withering fixture. I'm waiting to see how many buildings are gonna get shattered from this musical earthquake about to happen.

    What u say is true I think the west coast has a real chance to reclaim a big piece of the hip-hop pie again and it is up to the artists to do good music and we have to support them by buying their music. Also we have to be more vocal about our support. I'm from San Diego but I live down South now and even though they know some of the shit out from their artists is wack they don't diss their own.
    Everyone has to stand up and be proud to rep the west coast sound again. Peace
