Todays Music???

OK, so its been a good while since my last post... but I feel that I must speak on this topic, "Todays Music". Now, I grew up in the 90's era of music... thats when I fell in love with Hip Hop & RnB Music, from Biggie (GOAT), 2 Pac, Mart J. Blige, SWV, Xscape, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Total, 702, Nas, Jay Z, Heavy D, Brownstone, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Da Brat, and the list just goes on and on with great artist. But now, not trying to speak bad on the south... which has great Hip Hop artist like Outkast, Scarface, Ghetto Boys, UGK, TIP, & so on... but you never hear their music on the radio (with the exception of TIP)... otherwise I'm speaking on the MAINSTREAM southern "hip hop", like Soulja Boy, Shawty Lo, Young Jeezy, Lil' Wayne, Plies, Flo Rida, and so on... the music is meaningless now, and I really do pray that REAL Hip Hop comes back. Music is so sad and sorry nowadays, and if you comment on Youtube or Blog Sites about your feelings you will get bashed by Soulja Boys groupies or southern folks... and I feel so sorry for them because they don't even understand why Nas said Hip Hop is dead. With the 90's artist speaking on TRUE facts about life and the economy was doing pretty great back then, I would expect more lyrical quality now with the shit that's going on now... from Hurricane Katrina (Thanx Hova for "Minority Report"), the economy is horrible, and the USA is in a crisis today. But not only does the music today not have lyrical quality, but these rappers don't even have a flow... so why are they rapping? There was definitely dance music back then, but at least they had a flow and actually had talent. And nothing was ever the same, what do you have now... Crank That Soulja Boy... Crank Dat Batman... Crank Dat Yank... Get Silly... Low... Shawty... Buy U A Drink... Rock Yo Hips and the list goes on and on with the same pathetic lyrics, same beats, and same dance. What ever happened to having your own mind and creativity? You can be sooo successful by being your own person, take MJB and Hova for instance... the did the "Heart Of The City Tour" this year and it was sold out all over and money was not wasted on those tickets... they both have originality and are living legends, they sell records while record sales are at an all time low, and people love them. You don't have to copy in order to be liked.... and not only is it about the right now, but where will you be 10 years from now? Will you be an MC Hammer & Vanilla Ice or 2 Pac & Biggie? People all over the world take todays "Hip Hop" in the US as a joke, so just think about it...

LL Cool J & Total "Loungin Remix"

Plies & Ne Yo "Bust It Baby Pt. 2"

Jodeci "Forever My Lady"

T Pain "Bartender"

Jay Z & MJB "Can't Knock The Hustle"

Birdman & Lil' Wayne "Pop Bottles"

Lil' Kim, Left Eye, Missy Elliott, Angie Martinez, & Da Brat "Ladies Night"

Well you should get my point now lol.
