HELL YEAH...now I like this thread...let me throw some classic goodie mob on it..

As individuals and as a people we are at war
But the majority of my side got they eyes open wide
But still don't recognize what we fighting fo
I guess that's what I'm writing for to try to shed some light
But we been in the darkness for so long, don't know right from wrong
Y'all scared to come near it, you ignore the voice
In your head when you hear it
The enemy is after yo' spirit but you think it's all in yo' mind
You'll find a lot of the reason we behind
Is because the system is designed to keep our third eyes blind
But not blind in the sense that our other two eyes can't see
You just end investing quality time in places you don't even neeed to be
We don't even know who we are, but the answer ain't far
Matter of fact its right up under our nose
But the system taught us to keep that book closed
See the reason why he gotta lie and deceive is so
That we won't act accordingly
To get the blessings we suppose to receive
Yeah it's true, Uncle Sam wants you to be a devil too
See, he's jealous because his skin is a curse but what's worse
is if I put it in a verse y'all listen to some bull first
We ain't natural born killas, we are a spiritual people
God's chosen few
Think about the slave trade when they had boats with
Thousands of us on board
And we still was praising the Lord now you ready to die
Over a coat, a necklace round your throat, that's bull
Black people ya'll better realize, we losin, you better fight and die
If you got to get yo' spirit and mind back and we got to do it together
Goodie Mob means, "The Good Die Mostly Over bull"
You take away one "O" and it will let you know
"God is Every Man of Blackness"
The Lord has spoken thru me and the G-Mo-B!

Yo Vic I didn't know you were a Hiphop purist. I thought you were more of an alternative cat who dabbled here and there in some quality rap *&^%.

Who yall think is the nicest cat in the game right now?

I'm loving my dude Immortal Technique

i disagree.
he was totally in love with himself on this album-- it's like he made it for himself and not for a listening audience. i mean, perhaps he did his thing, but i wasn't feeling it at all, and was really annoyed because black on both sides was a masterpiece and the new danger was a total letdown IMO.

Man Im gonna be teaching my kids about Hiphop. I can't imagine myselg out growing hard core reality rap music just expanding my horizon.

Mos Def definately took a step back but he still came with some sic innovative *&^%. I aint feeling that Kweli tho he need to step it up.

Sands what you know about Rich tha Factor?
