  1. Personally, I'm pretty sure what works, yet most choose not to listen. But what works for one doesn't always work for another.

    Three main things to cut out:


    Alcohol (esp. Beer)

    majority of red meat (esp. pork, hot dogs, hamburgers)

    Those three things should put one on the path to success, if they got the strength to control themselves. I personally cut out those three things and it's worked wonders. Not that I was ever husky, but now it's hard for me to even put on a pound. I can treat myself to chips, cookies, and ice cream (three things I stayed away from while losing weight) occasionally and not pay the price. I also adopted better habits like eating smaller portions, and eating more greens (like salads). That's my personal advice. God willing I never go back to eating things like that, and I live well into my 60s, 70s, 80s, etc with optimum health and live to tell the younger generation about it. It's sort of my lifetime experiment :paparazziupinthespot: . Oh yeah: and try to avoid fast foods AT ALL COSTS! One...

  2. Cool...actually only two of those are on the new album...I already got "Fire" playing through the Apple Computer for everybody at work, employees and customers. You can go to undergroundhiphop.com and listen to 1 minute snippets of each songs if you like. Be sure to go out and buy the darn thing instead of jacking every song off the internet...that would be much appreciated.

    how could I forget Stetsasonic?

  4. If Ludacris keeps making the corporate-manufactured lyrics and degrading singles, he should expect a little backlash no matter how positive he is outside his music. Oprah needs not treat him like dirt though. Ludacris does have a lot of charisma as an MC, I'll give him that. Them lyrics though...they could use a makeover or two! It's getting a little old.

  5. Check out the song "Simply" by De La Soul. It really has nothing to do with Christmas, but just about having a great time. Plus, the hook is basically a takeoff of that Christmas song by Paul McCartney & Wings. I've been playing it a lot at work lately.

  6. I'm open-minded (NOW!!!) so I won't say that we all HATE mainstream, but it definitely holds lighter weight with us. And yes...that guy is entitled to his own opinion so none of us need be a "holy roller" and try to make him change that. To each his own. Right???

    Yo bigted, you been gettin' down to some O.C. lately?

  7. I'm probably going to get clowned on for this but I think Jay-Z's flow, not his lyrics, are sick. Rakim, Biggie, and FP also come to mind when I think of tight flows.

    The reason I stopped listening to Jay-Z was precisely for his "flow." I couldn't think of anyone else who litterally "talks" on wax like his was starting to do in many of his later songs. I couldn't stand it...sounded as if he wasn't even trying anymore.

  8. No, it's not as if every rapper has a forum after themselves. This is one of the better forums with a solid core of contributors. Only Chuck D's can compare on that list...

    Do you like FP at all?

    Sure. Just cause he's not in my top ten doesn't mean I don't like him as a rapper. I respect him even more as Will Smith the man than Fresh Prince the rapper. FPOBA was and still is my ish. I do like that "Code Red" cd. I just thought I'd answer y'all questions, no please cease with the inquisition. :kekeke: :bat:
