Young Guru & 9th Wonder Discuss You Know What by You Know Who
Man, all this talk is out of control. As I've written earlier, Kendrick Lamar is one of the few newer MCs that I'm actually feelin'. With that said, everybody just needs to relax a little. I guess all the hoopla just shows how thirsty everybody has been for a decent verse. One decent battle type verse and the whole hip hop world is in a frenzy. Personally, I think all the excitement about hip hop being back blah blah blah is way overstated. Too many place far too much emphasis on what is being played on the radio. In the age of soundcloud, youtube, spotify, blogs, and all other musical outlets, does anybody even listen to the radio anymore? Producers and MCs caring about what type of rap is being played on the radio is equivalent to television writers and directors caring about network TV programing in the age of AMC, HBO, Showtime, and Netflix. The thinking is just sooooo 1990's. My two cents, this is just another example of New York being the center of the media world. I bet the now infamous verse would not have received half the attention it has received if not for the King of NYC claim. Feel free to ignore this post.
