    nikkas is clowns period. This thread should show people how the rules get bent to shyt on Nas. Now there’s something wrong with Nas getting his labelmate and friend to do a hook on a track. All of a sudden Lauryn Hill was the fukkin Mariah Carey pop artist of the hip hop world with the Fugees. Smh. All of these nikkas but Mobb Deep had chicks singing on they shyt but it’s a prob when Nas does it.

    I think his critique became increasingly harsher with each post, the more yall continued to argue him down about it.:yeshrug:




    I can believe ir, cuz I vaguely remember reasonable doubt getting just about as much overall play on power 99, when you add all the singles & mix-show cuts up,

    he wasn't getting the level of daytime spins as an "if I ruled the world" tho.

    My point exactly. The Fugees organically crossed over largely due to covering a Roberta Flack classic. Still, nothing about it screamed blatant crossover bubblegum Pop.

    The Score actually sounds like an underground Hip Hop album. Lauryn singing helped give it some crossover appeal, but it was still Hip Hop.

    Dude talking about they were a Pop group when the first album flopped. Then he tried to use the Sister Act movie to help his argument. Their debut dropped a few months after the movie and STILL FLOPPED. The movie was 2 years old by the time The Score dropped. Lauryn didn't even look the same.

    The fact that nikkas are ACTUALLY trying to argue that an album that took 6 months to go gold got more play on the streets and the radio than an album that took less than 2 months to go double plat should tell u something. These nikkas aren’t even being logical wit they shyt. Lol. shyt Faizon Love was JUST on Vlad saying that he never even heard of Jay Z before Pac said his name. But he knew who Nas was. Literally verbatim. Lol. U nikkas crazy.

    While we don't have a time machine, the July 19, 1996 Funk Flex show is the closest we have. There's a thread on here with links to the show. It is 3 hours long. I listened yesterday and heard these joints:

    Can I Live
    Bring It On
    Cashmere Thoughts
    Brooklyn's Finest

    I Gave You Power
    Street Dreams
    Affirmative Action

    He also played the "Escobar Jackin For Beats" freestyle, an R&B joint featuring Jay Z, and a Jay freestyle.

    Now. On a day to day basis. nikkas wanna try to tell me that Jay was getting more play than Nas? Songs like The Message, Street Dreams, I Gave You Power, Affirmative Action, If I Ruled The World, Black Girl Lost, was all getting play.

    There’s a huge difference between a rap song that ORGANICALLY crosses over to the pop masses and a pop song made by a rapper designed to cross over.
