    Nas, your (ex)wife puts out garbage as well…and now you’re going to be paying for her cra*ppy musical productions for a long time. Thanks. 😉

  • Buttacupp

    What happened to my Nas?
    SMH…

  • I don't date Black Americans

    Nas is the only exception I would make since he has potential. oh wait he has 2 kids with 2 different women never mind. Sorry Nas but typical Black American anyway…

    Nas is right, music in general is garbage with Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga leading the pact of garbage-ness.

    Jay-Z is also pure trash but he knows he is pure trash and he also knows that the majority of you are dumb enough to buy into and support pure trash so I guess in that case trash recognize trash. In more simpler terms fans of Jay-Z and the aforementioned “artist” are pure trash.

    BLACK music IS DEAD….All “Rappers’ ain’t nuttin but a commodity….The RENT – A – RAPPER
    These Cats TELL US they do it for the Dolla’s

    Money is da motive (voice of Lil Wayne)

  • ok really

    What are you losers talking about!? Some of these comments are pure TRASH and uncalled for but that is what you get from ghetto hoodrats!

  • http://stewartsynopsis.com/Site%20Index.htm We "Blacks" Are The REAL Hebrew Israelites

    Some of these comments ARE pure trash, seeing as how people can’t even comment without being attacked. You don’t agree, then state your comment and tell us why.
    Why do some people need to feel the need to elevate and call others losers for such an inane opinion as concerning this story.

    It ain’t all that serious. Acting like we’re talking about your kinfolk or something, shoooot. 8)

    if 90’s rappers were so great and did it great…y arent they around today? if its all about the music.

    ANYBOOODDYY???

  • charlieblanko

    Hey Fat Boy… it’s harder to be “cool” and “Big Daddy Kane” when you are 40, married and have 4 kids.

    The torch has always been passed down, and people feel most of the new generation is dropping the ball.

    There are just pieces of greatness left in the game….(Jay Electronika)

    ANYBOOODDYY???

    You must have never heard of Jay-Z……

  • Kenny

    I dont blame the artist anymore because they know ignorant people will purchase anything as long as the beat is good. We are the only race who glorifies our struggle and brags about selling drugs to our own people, as well as killing them. What mature adult listens to that? It gets in your spirit and clashes.

  • fat boy

    charlieblanko point im trying to make is kane was irrelevant before he got real old, he was nothing in the mid to late 90’s. most those real hip hoppers were irrelevant before they got old.

    point is nas is trying to say as long as u making good music you will stick around and sell but this isnt true.

    NOne of these rappers last long no mater the music they make. so they get money y they can, aint nothing wrong with that.

  • I AM SO SICK OF NAS SAYING HOPHIP IS DEAD

    NAS NEEDS TO GO SIT DOWN SOME WHERE…IT’S BEEN 10 YEARS ALREADY WHERE NEVER GET THE 90’S MUSIC BACK YOU CAN HOPE AND WISH ON IT ALL YOU WANT

    NAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT HOP HIP DEAD FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS…IF IT’S SO DEAD THAN BRING IT BACK TO LIFE MOTHERF@#KER

  • I AM SO SICK OF NAS SAYING HOPHIP IS DEAD

    EVEN NAS FIRST BABY MAMA CARMEN BRYAN SAID THAT NAS USE TO SIT AROUND THEIR LITTLE SECTION 8 APPARTMENT BACK IN 1995 AND HATE ON OTHER RAPPERS

    CANT YALL SEE THAT NAS IS A TRUE HATER….

  • D.

    Totally agree about the majority of the rappers puttin are out garbage music!

  • chaka1

    @Kenny

    Cosign. Rap music has garbage for years. Hip hop is basically hip pop.

  • holla

    comparing album sales to talent is retarded…..

  • DR.FUNK

    Nas recognizes GARBAGE because he makes it as well.Hip-Hop may still sell…but it’s still garbage.

  • jamal

    Hiphop is back distant relatives wat an album.

  • I like Nas circa 1994

    I co-sign with Dari. People are dumb enough to feed into the likes of Lil Wayne so why can’t the record lablels capitalize off of people’s dumbness?

  • Get Real

    Hip hop has been dumb down so that niccas with a 4th grade education can compete. I really can’t believe this mess get played on the radio. I live in Atl & all you hear are little short ignorant hooks.

    I got plenty monnnnnnnnnnney
    Gucci, u don’t love me (Gucci Mane’s hook sound like some 5th grader girls) He probably didn’t pay them. They only got bragging rights.

  • thatbrutha

    YOU CAN’T PUT WEAK STUFF OUT THAT IS FOR THE POP CROWD THAT REALLY COULD CARELESS ABOUT BLACK FOLKS AND EXPECT TO GET RESPECT.
