    Can you believe how young these dudes were at that time?

    I don't think guys that young today can spit at that magnitude.

    He posted Ghostface-- camay..

    he wasnt that young, probably 24 or 25..

    But year you are right they dont make good young rappers no more... think back to Nas on Halftime or Live at the BBQ... probably the same age as Soulja Boy is now... Shyhiem... come on yo, Even the YOungstas lyrical game was up there

    i know what he posted...i was talkingabout what i posted...i don't know which songs those were from YC

    but rakim was about 18 or 19 i think when he forst bust on the scene...so was slick rick

    and ll cool j was like 18 when he dropped "radio"

    lyrical styles were way more intricate than these elementary rappers they got out now

    not his alone... i believe it was for some reason around 1997 or 1998 there was abrupt cut off from the lyrical hiphop and an immediate flocking to the flashy, ultra materialsitic hiphop that has evolved into what we see today...

    that is what i call the post biggie bad boy era...it was puffy fault....i think HE singlehandedly destroyed hip hop...with the flashyness...too much dancing and club bangers...then the neptunes era ushered in more music for the clubs and dancing...minus the lyrics...there was no turning back after that

    Dudes figured out that there was no reason to have creative rhymes if they not getting paid, so they just sold out to make money.


    Diddy started it.

    that and the whole marketing scheme of the word hater... There was a a moment when people said "yo, is everyone gonna start sounding like this now" then those sentiments get met with the phrase "oh you hatin" So then everyone was like, if i dont automatically like that new badboy flashy era crystal poppin shit, then i am a hater, i better get with the program then... and then you had Sheep-hop

    The word hater needs to be excluded from everybody's vocabulary.
