Accurate... dude I forgot to mention from my last post. Bonafide star.. and he Latino which would have opened up a whole other world. With Pun being gone (not saying peedi is the kc pun was), he would have really set it off... dude was a star

Yeah, Crakk has all of the attributes (unique flow/great delivery, distinct voice, clever rhymes etc) it takes to be a top tier emcee

he really dropped the ball when it came to not staying focused on the music :francis:

Couldn’t see it with purp… he def would still be successful and have a huge niche following, but asap mastered and refined his style imo… speaking of ASAP should be even bigger than he is, which is telling cause he’s hugely successful. My boy calls him an IG influencer who can actually rap :russ:

Lenny Kravitz. His show was one of the best I saw right after the pandemic.


Lenny Kravitz is a superstar with classic albums/songs, multiple Grammy awards, and is considered a legend of Pop and Rock. Dude is almost on Prince levels of talent playing all instruments on his early albums and writing the majority of his music. If ANY modern day musician has taken “full advantage” of his skillset its Lenny Kravtiz

That's a fact I think the city is def cursed. Stack came up in a bad NY era when there was no unity and the south took over. Jones wasn't trying to let him or Max shine

:mjcry:

I checked on Charles last year and they was holding that nikka in prison in LA for spazzing on somebody. Man. I was a huge Charles fan. I used to design fan made posters of him. I used to print out fan made album covers for him. My brother clowns me to this day about Charles cause back in the day when I was a huge fan, I had a dream that I was at a Jay Z concert and Hov is performing and then stops in the middle of his set like "yo i got a special guest imma bring out here right now" like he did with Michael Jackson at Summer Jam, only this time it was Charles Hamilton and the crowd went crazy. I was so excited in my dream that I woke up and told my brother.

:mjlol: :mjcry: he makes fun of me about that to this day.


CH was one of the most naturally talented people in the game. Dude’s talent and madness went hand in hand I believe and he buckled under the pressure of his own genius but dude had that span when he dropped like 10 mixtapes in I think a month and at least 7 of them were absolute FIRE. Everything he touched for a hot minute was turning into gold and then that shyt with his ex happened and she punched him in the face live on camera and dude just spiraled after that
