      By the way you don't hear me complaining that Tiger Woods stole golf from the white people. And yeah rock was based on Blues but eventually Rock involved in to a music genre of it's own. Do you also say when a Rapper gives away his inspirations that he can't do anything himself? But i got to hand it to you the best rock artist to ever live was black. He was called Jimi Hendrix so well done. Now the second thing that bothers me is you can not relate what we go through. I am a fucking authistic cunt who suffers because of the authism from depressions. So don't see the world so black and white cause i wonder if you could ever relate to me.

      I have to disagree. Hip hop is only for black people? That's redicilous i didn't knew a music genre could be claimed. If you want to listen to country go ahead i couldn't care less. I think it's shit but if you want to do it's fine be my guest. But your comments are useless you might as well could have said well black people invented music so white people can't listen to it, that's fucking bullshit. I listen to loads of shit including hip hop. And i just live the same life i always had as a normal white boy. I understand that you hate when a white guy acts black, but to generalise all the white people is a bit harsh. You shouldn't blame everyone for a few cunts.

    So is that platinum world wide with over a million sales/shipments or platinum domestically for over a million shipments? He sold 800,000 records. That's still not a million. And I find it hard to believe that 200,000 people have ordered the record and returned it. Ah, fuck it. It's only a matter of time anyway before it reaches that mark the promoters have busted their ass for.

    when i listen to this cd stoned i cum in my pants

  • yeyeye

    wow the comments on this site suck

  • Scottie Minor

    white people still feel they can comment on hip hop... how can u comment on something if its not a part of your culture... white people try so hard to be black.. you know how stupid u look when u try and act and dress black... they made a movie making fun of white people trying to be black (malibu most wanted)... how does it feel to listen to something u can't relate to... for an example.. when you listen to nas (second childhood)or (destroy & rebuild) or too short (the ghetto)or watch (boyz n the hood)... how can a white person relate to any of those... you cant really get into the song white people because u dont go through what they rapping about... u got some white people on here commenting saying they live in the hood... first off lets define (hood)... just cause you or yor boyz slang a lil crakk and hang on the corner (thats not the hood).... just cause u and yor boyz own a gun (thats not tha hood).... just cause one of yor boyz got murked (thats not tha hood)... jus cause u shot someone (thatz not the tha hood)... know in the real hood . the housing authority... when a white person walks through the projects.. everybody starts looking at him for to rob him or sell him drugs.. when a white person shows up in my hood or housing authority .. everbody jus stop and look with they mouth open... cause they gonna either rob that muthafuker or serve him... i seen a thousand times a white wigga come in the hood trying to black and get hiz goofy azz robbed... whu got that (hood 2 hood)dvd... they go through every hood in the united states jus about.. not one white person on the whole dvd... lol lol lol.... to all the white people trying to be black ... hip hop is for black race created by the black race... go look at a paul wall video and look at the way he moves his body trying to look black .. that shit never comes out right.. cause white people have no Rhythm.... thats like the funnyiest thing when whites act or dance black lol lol lol lol lol

      Scottie Minor: Just some dude looking for attention. Last thing this site needs is it's comments section turning into another sohh.com. Speaking of which, you should take your "talents" over there...lame ass sites like that one would welcome you with open arms.

      obviouslly comments made by an ignorant nigger. thats whats wrong with the internet is that ignorant tools like this nigger here, who is the lightest skinned nigger Ive ever seen to be talking like that. when you walk through your "housing authority" do the real black kids look at you with their mouths open, whitey? Do you get robbed because you really are the whitest person around. You really are a pathetic excuse for a human being its ok though because niggers do one thing very good and thats weeding out the lame niggers. So it shjouldnt be long until you're killed by some other dumb nigger and your dumb nigger mother is going to go on TV crying about how her useless 24year old nigger son who lives at home still with her in their public housing building, that her nigger son was killed by some other nigger. but then they'll start crying for racism when the police go to investigate for looking for a nigger who just killed another nigger. really niggers are the biggest disgrace on this planet. You should go back to africa and ruin it like you've ruined the southern states in america
