    ^ neva

    it did create a better awareness of political issues because of Luke, NWA, Ice-T, PE and their skirmishes…in 2012, hardly anybody remembers Luke & Rhymefest tried to get political seats…their concern is how soft Drake is…NHJIC…

      got to agree with you there to a degree, mate. The cats you listed influenced my own thought patterns ,and thus who i am today. peeps i know are the same. young cats don’t listen to that type of hip hop on a grand scale anymore.

    I can’t fathom Packer fans booing their own team. I ride with my Saints even when we cough up a victory and feel the biting agony of defeat.

      There are fans & there are spectators.
      Spectators are there to see the spectacle. Fans are there to support their investment.

      That said, Staples will boo the fuck out of the Lakers if “they” feel that’s what the squad needs to hear…
