    First of all, this dance came out around 2006/2007, and these dudes are goin to be one-hit wonders. Groups are kinda stupid in the industry now. These niggas gotta split money 4 ways, and u know their album, if they make one, will flop. That means, when labels take their portion, these niggas probably gonna have $100 each to support themselves. I doubt the west will ever have another mainstream artist that reaches success.

      Hip Hop is on its way to being dead. I'm not saying there won't always be rappers true to the art, but if you hang around what the next generation of kids think is hip hop you will see what I mean. All the kids around 13 years old, when they growup hiphop to them will be whats been played on the radio. Think about what your local hip hop station plays. Think about what you see on t.v. Now tell me, what do you think they will see perceive hip hop as when they get older. Nas already saw this and that is why he released that single. Shits going downhill. Even with new up and comer's like J. Cole, the new generation won't relate to that shit, they like Gucci.
