You already know bars were in the building.
During this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game at MSG, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard will take the court for the West. You probably already know how he turns up in the second half of games. What you probably didn’t know is he can really spit. He recently demonstrated his content and flow on Sway in the Morning. Rapper’s take note and tighten up those bars!
The wild cowboy reaches into his bag of abstract and spits some jewels.
Did Nas use ghostwriters on his records? Does it really matter? Would that take away from the previous contributions he’s made to the Hip Hop culture? Anyone who’s spent long hours in the studio with equally creative individuals would be lying if they said they never heard something they liked or may have wish they said. Artists are influenced by their environment. It’s always possible for an idea to mean something as much or more to another like-minded individual. Biting (Yeah, that was at one time against the rules) and taking someone else’s theory line for line without their consent is grounds for concern even today. That’s a good sign because we’re still talking about it and you’re still reading. On the other hand, collaborations among artists will always spill thoughts and even words from one mind to the other. That’s part of the purpose of working with other talented artists in the first place. Dead Prez sit down with Sway In the Morning and discuss their side of the rumored stories concerning the making of Nas’ 2008 Untitled (Nigger) album. Tell us what you think and keep reading as stic.man and M1 perform their anthem: “It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop”. Read the rest of this entry
