I hear ya on that one bro.

I don't even beef about sampling as much as I have my oppositional defiant attitude about sampling trumping original compositions.

I think musicality wherever it comes from needs to get back into hip hop ASAP.

I see why people are so impressed by Kanye's new album. That's actually a statement about the rest of the music out there.

Illegal downloading and garbage ass music seem to be lifelong bedfellows unfortunately.

This kind of speaks to PSMs thread about the originals.
