another crappy song by a hardcore thug artist singing a love song with a vocalist
· hip hop in 2005 will be...
should continue to get better. We usually get good music when we have bad times in our county. I'll explain:
Regan - 1980 – 1988 = extreme hardships for the average = dope hip hop.
Bush 1 – 1988 – 1992 =more extreme hardships for the average = dope hip hop + gangsta rapper.
Clinton – 1992 – 1996 = People are still pissed from 12 years of Regan / Bush = dope hip hop.
Clinton – 1996 – 2000 = Economy is good, people are getting more comfortable = Hip Hop is being ruined by corporations.
Bush 2 – 2000 – 2004 = Pissed off people = Good music starts making a comeback.
Bush 2 – 2004 - ? = Even more pissed off people = more great music.
· my new years resolutions
put out three times more and three times better music than I did last year
