Oh you little trendy little asian folks. I Believe rap isn’t going anywhere or out of style. The trance or “rave” music as you call it is a trend. Alice Deejay will not be around in five years i’m sorry. Spice girls anyone?July 17, 2001 at 9:27 pm #17447
Yo, that just proves to us that yall Dirty South kiddies are only in it cause its a trend. You and the next man next to you ain’t nothing but a commercial follower. Hip-hop/rap won’t go nowhere. You forgettn that hip-hop is a culture, not a trend. It’ll be here way after I’m gone. Yall just dont know, the whole hip-hop scene here is still alive(Chicago I’m sure of). Its only dead to the un-true heads.

well i use to hate alternitive music and rave music but in the past few years i grew to like it…..but i never stopped listening to Rap and hip hop though i listen to basically everything now but my one tru genre is still rap….i grew up listening to rap and i wont drop a type of music just because new types are getting more famous….. to the people who do do that….why do you wanna be a sheep hahahaha sheeps followJuly 20, 2001 at 9:34 am #17532
Well, I’m just saying, most people think its a fad, a trend that they can pretend to be and then when its out of style, they’ll throw it away and pick up another cause it not popular among their peers. I’m just lett’n him know that hip-hop aint a trend, its a culture. I don’t remember hip-hop being out of style. Maybe he needs to pick one genre of music and stick to it.July 20, 2001 at 9:18 pm #17550

I still listen to rap.July 23, 2001 at 3:52 pm #17569
hiphop is not a trend so it can’t go out of “style.” rap is the foundation of a lot of differnt branches of music. it started with run dmc n look how long the sh!t has prospered! n how long ago was that? that shows how ignorant kats can be. the only thing the rap industry will do is grow. trance…um, i cant feel it like that. i would say that its music for people that do e..but see THAT would be ignorant. n we dont want that. just like any race, there’s people with different musical taste. all asians dont listen to one type of music. thats wack, cause i’d be damned if i had to sit and listen to rave n trance for more than 20 seconds. thats word coming from a chic that always will love rap music.July 26, 2001 at 1:55 am #17586

I agree…a lot of the rap songs that are played on the radio and MTV are whack!!!. Yet, I find myself listening to them all day everyday at work. CADILLAC…well you know.July 30, 2001 at 7:51 pm #17671
maybe its the area where you’re from. cause around my way we have this station that plays strictly underground tracks no r&b or soft sh!t like that. as for mtv, yea they do play the watered down tracks, but u gotta expect that from a channel that serves the pop audience. and for bet, i dont know…i like the videos from rap city’s the basement and 106park…i admit they do put some wack artists like lil romeo on the constant. s’all good…rap livesAugust 2, 2001 at 10:42 pm #17685

All form of music is beautiful. I personally like Punk, Alternative and anything with a band. I use to listen mostly to hip hop and rap before..but that’s way back in the Young MC and Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth days. haha. But the newer rap got kinda boring, it’s not fun anymore…it’s too serious. What happen to songs like, “Hip Hop Hooray”, “Whoop There It Is”, or “Rump Shaker”. Now it’s more like, Player hate this and Player hate that, Pimpin here and there and I got more money than you kinda rap. See, it’s not fun anymore. So I can’t relate to it. But certain songs are good, like Afroman’s, “But I Got High”…hahaha. Well, whatever is cool to me, but I don’t know about country…I can’t relate to songs about milking cows. line dancing, and love encounter at a rodeo show…I know some khmer listen to “country”, but it’s not true country…it’s more a mix of pop and country…i.e. Shania Twain and that other fine chic.August 5, 2001 at 3:10 am #17727
There are many style of hip-hop. You got the underground hip-hop, gangster rap, and dirty south rap. It depends on which style you like and listen too. For me, mainstream rap like sh*t that BET and MTV plays are too damn ‘played out’ and boring. There’s no real lyrics to it except the same subject and a beat you can bump in your rides too. Underground rappers like Mos Def, Cage, Big L, JUICE, and many others will still keep the hip-hop music culture alive and well cause they got definitions in their lyrics, its from the heart, not their management that the majority of the mainstream rappers rap about to satisfied their managers. That is why a lot of kats rather stay underground, its better that way.
Trust me, as long as there’s kids being influence by emcees like Mos Def, Common, Big L, and a lot of others, there will be more soon-to-be emcees that will fill the position of many current players in the hip-hop/rap game.
And it is true, it does depend on your community. Some communities embrace it and some just don’t know anything about it. If yall dont know, the underground hip-hop scene and its business is very alive and well and it will be here when Cash Money and Master P runs out of wack lyrics to rap about. Big urban cities like New York, Philly, New Jersey and Chicago all have prospering hip-hop communities. And its the ‘real’ and ‘hardcore’ fans that keeps it going.August 5, 2001 at 7:27 am #17744
tell it koes…=)
i never listened to khmer anything let alone khmer pop to tell u the truth. whenever one of my older cousins would play it, i’d be the first one to turn it off.
i’m from the 757 va beach area, it isnt really as urban as NYC or chi-town, but it’ll get up there one day. several successful artists sprung from here too. i’ve grown up around original (black) kats my whole life and very few asiatic, thats what got me into the rap scene. around my way, i’d have to say that the majority asians are into music that are industry produced…that trl type sh!t. rap comes in many different forms. personally im into the gutter sh!t. i may be redundant…just trying to get my thought across to you. rap lives aiight sucka…August 5, 2001 at 8:02 am #17763

i heard the hi-tek’s album. its hot, didnt have a chance to buy it though. =)August 7, 2001 at 7:09 am #17815
Word! yeah, get the new Hi-tek, its worth the chedda you be spending. Oh, I heard that part from Jigga’s new joint. I never knew he had fam down there. I thought he was kinda talking about his crews or suttn play’n ball. Yo, thats dope you got Iverson still hanging around his old hood It shows people aren’t forgetting where they come from even if after they make millions.
Oh yes!! I was listening to the radio yesterday on the bus and when they said, “New Nasty Nas joint!!” I had goosebumps. I dont remember the name of the song cause I was shock that they would play it already, but HOT DAMN!! he’s back to his old self again. The new album will be call STILLMATIC. The sound ain’t the same when he was Illmatic, but its probably the illest sh*t I’ve heard in a long time from this kidd!!
Oh, I read your little post on my SURVEY forum! haha. I meant that in a joking way. I learned that too. Let your game speak for itself. But ahem! I’ll hush… shhhh..August 8, 2001 at 7:53 am #17834

How can something so true in roots just die out? Hip-hop is a form of communication and is a solid culture. How can something like that just die out in a city? Let alone fade away in the asian community in the south. I grew up listening to rap and got a better understanding of things like life and what people go through that fortunatly I didn’t have to go through, nah i mean? I don’t know folks, this is just my opinion on it and who said disco is dead….it’s still “staying alive” one love, peace and traquility!!!
