Things in hip hop that are so forgotten they feel retconned

    In fiction retcons are when something new is revealed...it changes the entire past narrative to the point that it's the accepted fact that was ALWAYS true.

    Hip hop is not supposed to be fiction...but rappers often lie, hide things, keep their mouth shut and try to undermine things. Both the hip hop media and message boards like these are also full of lying revisionists and people who simply weren't around trying to speak on things they never saw happen in real time to even remeber.

    Name any event or thing you remember that's either nearly wiped from history, the internet, or forgotten about. Here's my list

    Stan Spit's early association with the Diplomats as well as his subsequent Cam'ron beef.

    Currensy's run with Lil Wayne in the infancy of "Young Money"

    Hutch and Kokane's part in the Ruthless vs Death Row beef

    Snoop being part of a reunited NWA in the early 2000s

    Lil Wayne criticizing Jay for coming back then apologizing. (Which is odd because seemingly everyone remembers Jeezy's comments about Nas and they reference it in that very same interview)

    40 Cal announcing there would be a Nas diss on Broken Safety 2

    Game and Wayne "blood brothers" mixtape announced, tracklist put up on dubcnn, and the release of lyrical homicide

    The other version of 4321. Had a different beat than the original or the album version. LL had a longer verse. Canibus verse is shorter than the original but longer than the album version with no X verse. It was in very poor quality though

    Dre and Snoop "Make up to break up" album.. it seems like it was officially announced at one point but not really. Felt like a giant rumor.

    ODB's posthumous album. Came and went like a fart in the night.

    Mos Def Black Jack Johnson album with a full band.. there was ads in magazines for it.

    Beats by the Pounds becoming the Medicine Men.. they made absolutely no noise after all those hits they made for No Limit

    J Dilla in general. He’s revered in death but a lot of people hated on his shyt when he worked with Tribe, solo Q-Tip, and Pharcyde.

    Guilty. At the time, J-Dee's (as we called him at first) beats felt unfinished and skeletal compared to the shyt we heard on "Bizzare Ride" and "Midnight Marauders". Perhaps it had to do with wanting to pay less for samples.. but those early "watery" Dilla beats were a far cry from what we were used to. I love them now.

    This.

    I always have to bring it up in convos. Don’t get me wrong. No disrespect to the dead. Donuts and all that was dope. But he used to basically be blamed for ruining Tribe Calked Quest.
