bigted Posted October 16, 2005 Report Share Posted October 16, 2005 (edited) I didn't say I blame "The Chronic" but after that a lot of rappers started to immitate that sound and it was just watered down on the most part except for Warren G and a couple others just like a lot of groups started to come out after New Edition and started to sound watered down except for Boyz II Men and a couple others. Yeah if y'all think hip-hop's state is bad, r&b is much worse, I can't really think of anybody that came out recently that could sing, they don't write or produce their songs either, the only thing a lot them get signed for is the way they look, well Paris Hilton has a record deal now and is making an album so that must be the case, J-Lo's career is in jeopardy now. :lolsign: Another problem is that entertainers go from one type of entertainment to another and they struggle, Will's like the only one of few that could drop a great album and a great movie at the same time, basketball players shouldn't rap, models shouldn't sing, and most rappers shouldn't act either, they're taking places away from those who really do have talent trying to get in the game. I honestly can't see many of these new artists coming out on the charts now still in the music buisiness 10-20 years from now or even 5 years from now for that matter 'cause gradually not being able to sing/rap and write/produce will catch up to them, they're gonna be older and record labels'll be looking for more fresh faces, if you could sing/rap or write/produce though there'll be always something you could do even if you sell less, longevity is better than just selling 10 million in 5 years and disappearing forever. 50 Cent thinks he's the next LL 'cause he has his shirt off in his videos but LL has "mind, body, and soul" so even when he don't have the body anymore he'll still have mind and soul which makes him "The G.O.A.T." if he didn't have that his career would've ended 15 years ago "body" could you so far , 50 Cent just has a "body" so when that goes he's done.
