I saw a special on the real Rick Ross, from Cali, he claimed the dapper was a complete phony and used to be a rent a cop. Just uses his name and history of one of the biggest drug dealers, but never sold a dime. It's all BS now.
    Nas is still doing his thing. Life Is Good and Distant Relatives and even Untitled was hot. People just wanna dance nowadays instead of listening to lyrics. He can't rap about the projects and petty hustling no more because that's not his life. He does go down memory lane but he doesn't put on a front like he's the Kingpin of Queensbridge.

    I do agree however, that the kids that are young today will eventually grow up and hate whatever the world has to offer 10 years from now and remenise about the "good" days when rappers were throwing money in the air with half naked girls in the video....it's sad but that's the way life is, it's just a cycle
    The mid 90's and early 2000's had a few gems. Like YA said, there's still good music out there, it's just not commercial.

    Agreed...the underground is more strong than ever....but again, in the 90's the mainstream was actually good. Now you have to go to the underground to find quality. Back in the 90's, the mainstream was artists like Tupac, Nas, Biggie, NWA.....the mainstream today is just a bunch of nonsense.

    Amen....this is basically my life motto....everything just seemed better in the 90's...even pop groups were better back then than now. Even shows like the Simpsons or movies lol. I don't know why but lately everything is so fake and corporations just ruined originality.

    I look at it like genetically modified foods. They mass produce stuff to feed the masses, but it's not as good for you as the organic natural way (aka real independant artists just being themselves)

    For Old Timers, do you remember the names?
    Like Bronco Nagurski and Nightrain Lane,
    Bulldog Turner, my man Sam Huff
    In the snow and mud, they were still real tough.
    Crazylegs Hirsch and remember Raymond Berry?
    Ask me if they hit hard and I’ll say “Very!”
    Paul Christian, Buddy Young, Lenny Moore
    It’s them I adore, they seem to always score.
    Ed Sprinkle, defensive end for those years
    Gene “Big Daddy” Lipscomb was the man to fear!
    You had Steven Van Buren and Otto Graham
    Johnny Unitas had the arm of a Superman!
    We had Charley Trippi and Gino Marchetti
    If you’re searching for a champion, they’re your best bet!
    Wish I could quarterback like Johnny Lujack
    Or even Sid Luckman as a matter of fact.
    Do you remember Red Grange, the Galloping Ghost,
    He could do a ninety-five running coast-to-coast.
    You had Norm Van Brocklin, a real great player
    So slick with his moves that he could be mayor
    Y.A. Tittle, Ollie Matson, Hey!
    I remember all those guys, from back in the day.

    U-G-L-Y,
    you ain't got no alibi,
    you ugly, you ugly.

    Loved that movie. Alot of faces in it. Snipes, Harrelson, Goldie Hawn, etc.
