    These 3 cornballs aren't even hip-hop. Kanye raps about his bear fetish, Wiz Khalifa raps about Ben Rapistberger and B.o.B is a sorry ass nerd. Anyone who likes these rappers have no life and they listen to pop. Gucci Mane, Justin Bieber and Hopsin are real Hip-Hop. Go listen to them. It's Gucci Time!
