What I meant earlier about outkast was that guys in the south could relate to 2 cats in baseball jeerzeys that could spit, but when you put one guy in a catchers mask, foot ball tugs and a birdcatcher's hat, it takes something away from it. I dont mind the growth musically it's just that THEY changed.
It's just like common dude can spit, but has no mass appeal. I think pac and big balanced the ability to spit with mass appeal and so did Jigga and Scarface. Hip Hop needs a new voice one that will kinda be what THE DOC woulda been if he hadnt been in the accident. someone who can spit but shows up in a T shirt and jeans and looks like kids can relate to him. At the same time I dont diss the Chingy's or the White T songs because these are equivalent to the past "Cabbach Patch or Do the Pee wee hermans" of the past. (NOTe the cabbache Patch song was none other than Doctor DRE) There is a place for it all, it's just that THE Balance is missing. Nobody is discussing regular life anymore, it's all like Swartzenegger in a movie killing 900 people.
Where as 2 pac had "Brenda's baby" songs to balance off "Gangsta party" type songs
Once again, spoken like a true MC. No argument here.
