I Proudly Take This Time To Shine Light On A Hip Hop Legend
Wow, seems nearly two decades, wait before I get to that...
My definition and every other bloggers definition of Hip Hop will always vary. Though, we will meet on common grounds with some points, it all makes great convo. I was very close minded to certain styles, was like a soldier with my rap consumption. Through the years I realized favorite doesn't necessarily mean best. Recognizing strengths of artists I didn't like, helped me to notice where to improve. Plus appreciate when my favorites take risks more.
Personally, I feel this art form is about demonstrating power, finesse, wit, uplifting, using dialects. All while keeping the listener rockin, vibin to your flows. Of course, you have to ride the beat, make the producer proud! I was usually drawn to rappers who spit hard and lyrical. This style once reined our genre, not so much this present time. Recently listeners have grown huge demand for more melodic sounds. A good MC is a good MC, so I dig the variety. I still have that underground structure in me, fortunately, my sense for good radio-friendly music is keen. Right now, no other artist comes to mind who defines this timeline.
That's right, nearly two decades since I started listening to M.O.P. Till this day they hold world- class titles for the hardest raps. Billy Danze with long time partner Lil Fame (Fizzy Wo) often pained hardships on records. Back and forth rigid personalities over vivid DJ Premier tracks. Who remembers when Blood Sweat Tears played in Belly? Instantly went crazy in the theater. There is yet to be a harder smash hit about booking somebody than Ante Up.
The Brownsville natives are known for creating authentic Hip Hop moment. The type that soundtrack the streets ugliness. Lately, Billy expresses more sides to his personality in solo releases. Play Time Gangstas pokes fun at the obvious with some harmonizing from Mac Wilds. Sorry no harmonizing from Danze...
We Out Here is a club hit featuring a cool hook from Prin$e Alexander. I know Brooklyn is lit for BarclaysMusic with Eyesenpowa and Damorne Warren. On a more sensitive political topic, 6 O'clock Briefing speaks directly to our historic president. You must hear for yourself.
