What that got to do with making a classic album...
Originally posted by Inactive UserI don't know that you can call this album classic by any means, unless our definition of "classic" is completely different.
Also, some would argue authenticity is important. Sure, it's all music and that's fine. Throw some lyrics on some decent beats and you have an album. Portray a certain image and you're even better off with the masses. But hip hop/rap is supposed to be so much more than that.
Look, if you want to talk about drugs and poverty and the struggle (despite not being involved in it to the extent that you claim), that's fine, we get it. But do it in a way that says "this stuff exists"...not in a way that says "I say this stuff not because I care that it exists, but if I'm perceived a certain way then I'm more popular".
It's completely different when you say that I am aware of these issues and I want to make you aware of them so I portray them in my music because it's a great medium to connect to strangers, than to say I used to slang crack on the corners and I run from the police....when you really don't.
Say what you want, just don't front about it.
Don't badmind me.
Ross being a c.o over shadowed the fact that he was in the streets too. I really don't care what he did, but the wordplay, production etc makes this a classic album.
