Knew his roots? You knew that he could act? What the fuck does that have to do with rapping.
I'm assuming you consider yourself a "real hip hop head" right?
No. I listen to all kinds of music, not that bullshit generalization you're trying to fit me into.
He grew up in a fairly decent neighborhood in Toronto, and doesn't really fit with the "street" nature of Young Money. He's lying in his rhymes.
Jesus, what's the matter with you people? It's like if I don't like one artist, I need to be burned and hung.
you're not getting what i'm saying... a good artist that can actually spit hard and has the chance to go platinum, which hip hop fans been begging for, and he gets hated on... typical
Again, he can rhyme good, I'm not doubting that, but still, some people don't like the content of his lyrics. Just how it is sometimes.
