SCARFACE UNPLUGS HIS ISSUES W/ HIP-HOP: "THE DUMBEST SH*T I EVER HEARD IS ON THE RADIO RIGHT NOW"
Houston rap legend Scarface recently shared his thoughts on today "s hip-hop scene and explained why he believes there must be a conspiracy based on what currently receives radio play
In Face Mob "s opinion, hip-hop has fallen victim to being dumbed down and losing its essence.
"I be looking at sh*t like a conspiracy. That "s the way I feel about music," Face said in an interview. "You know what I mean? I feel like the powers that be are intentionally dumbing down our craft, man. I feel like they dumbing us down because the dumbest sh*t I ever heard is on the radio right now. Number one. Whatever number one is." ("Combat Jack Show")
Recently, fellow rap veteran Nas suggested the level of authenticity and realness no longer existed in hip-hop.
"I saw it come from the corner with the guys with the radios and dudes break dancing on the streets everywhere," Nas said when asked how hip-hop has changed. "Today, it "s kind of lost integrity, it "s lost its meaning, it "s lost its love, which is why I made [2006 "s] Hip Hop Is Dead album. [What "s dead?] The realness." ("Talk Stoop")
