  • herbsaac

    This si why HIPHOPdx is so gay nowadays.. they are only intereed in the new cats in the game.. I.E> drake.. crooked I.. and other shitty rappers who have monotone voices and who will reach out to gay sites like hiphopdx because they know that most people that buy cds wont buy their cd so they need to reach out to the bloggers and pretend to respect them when really they just want the measly ten dollars that the bloggers wont even spend anyways.. After saying that.. WHY DIDNT THEY POST THE RELEASE DATE for BIG BOI?????!! This website is guilty of age discrimination or hating on rappers that can still sell because they arent feeling that styyle anymore.. Quit trying to have that "new shit" before anyone else and just have that good shit..(like Big Boi.. not drake and crooked i and other microphone controllers who only spit about one thing and its the same thing they have said since the beginning of their horribly mediocre careers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    • booo34

      the drake album is gonna be wack, you even hear his new stuff especially after he signed with young money? hes dumbed down! he caters to the bitches anyways, hes the new pop shit thats popping off (2 years ago, it was souljah boy!). i don't seen any guy who proudly mentioned they're a fan of him, they embarrassed if they fans. i dont expect shit from joel ortiz, dudes way past due, his new premo joint was nice but just like royce da 5'9(besides that dinnertime track), i bet that premo tracks the best track on his album anyways. at least all of cams stuff bangs, especially while ridin, some of his stuff is hilarious to listen to. u dont like 8ball&mjg(south legends), or cypress hill? o and guilty simpson album wit madlib?b.o.b. is the better mainstream cat comin out, rather him than drake.and reflection eternal(talib kweli+hi-tek) and mf grimm comin as well as new common,kurupt, and doggpound! and u rather have drake? u wack dawg
