    He got his cred cuz he is the dude that dropped "Girls in the world" and Brand new funk" both those songs put him on back in the day. After that he went. Commercial of course but u can't take the 1st album away from him. He was actually dope.

    Oh, I'm sorry I didn't read Will Smith's biography. What's even "young as fukk"? I'm 24 nikka.

    And if Will's a sellout, then being a sellout is underrated. He had an authentic dj, wrote fun music and never claimed to be gangsta like a lot of these fake ass rappers nowadays. Then did his thing in Hollywood and never looked back.

    will smith is the beginning successful litmus test of new school revisionist history.

    used to erroneously excuse a stepp'n fetch it type in the business of rap.

    it is the original playbook used still to this very day. that has created why eveything is awry right now.

    another culture thief hiding their hands, as usual.

    yes you are young and on top of it ignorant as fukk.

    the same cultural ignorance sugar hill to will smith/jive/imposter jazzy jeff.

    have used to dupe and fukk up the world up using rap, and the culture of hiphop, as a catalyst and scapegoat.

    you are the byproduct welled in ignorance that comes from that.

    Barr do u like any other rapper besides Krs 1 and those who made records before 1984? Cuz Will Smith never did anything that wasn't true to his character. He was always himself . How cant u respect that?

    I have seen posters on this very site as well as the old one call him an all time great, a top 50 M.C., a rapper beyond reproach, and better the Eminem. I don't even like Eminem, and I find this shyt beyond laughable. No one says these things about Biz Markie, so I have no idea what the point of bringing him up is. Biz didn't have a long ass run of making corny ass family friendly pop rap either. On top of that, from top to bottom Biz has two albums better than any album Will Smith put out. Both use ghostwriters, so as M.C.s they're irrelevant to me.

    As far as whatever dumb ass point you're trying to stretch about Jazzy Jeff, I think he's a legendary DJ when I'm talking about no one with any musical taste liking Will Smith's shytty ass family friendly pop rap I'm talking about the string of garbage ass ghostwritten corny songs like wild west, switch, gettin' jiggy with it, and miami. All of which - unless you're 10 years old, 50 years old and don't generally like rap, or an animated chipmunk should - stand out as being absolutely shytty music.

    True, know old school music like the back of my hand, but to paraphrase what Marlo told Old Face Andre, I ain't much for sentimental value. Just because a song was fun when I was a kid doesn't mean the guy who made it isn't a bit of a crossover clown who uses ghostwriters and has made some of the most embarrassing singles of all time. Will Smith is fukking wack, b. Glad he got his paper on the Hollywood hustle, but dude is trash as a rapper.

    Ain't no such thing as a hip hop pass for life. You making complete bullshyt family friendly doo doo rap, you wack to me, period. It's no different from some corny ass G Love and Special Sauce shyt.

    nikka,..whut!

    you don't even know who i am.

    yet you run to act like you know and defend will smith.

    shyt is corny!!

    just like that bullshyt when nikkaz was sayin they know who i stan.

    nikkaz don't even know the street rappers they like.
    got respect to post about them in this community.

    leasening the stigma cause i reviewed and gave them props.

    on if they had technical skills or some skill employed on their shyt.

    so kill all that who i do not like anybody bullshyt.

    when mostly all the rappers with some respect on here that were dually hated.

    got to have fans post on here without getting run off because of me.

    from everybody you can think of.

    where do you think poster like bassington, holt and charmander run around with their damn e-bird chest poked out from.

    as far as my music taste and my origins.

    spare your criticism,....

    as, you know nuffin about:

    I mean really F@@k Will Smith I jus said dude never pretended to be somthing he wasn't which is true. Wat u saw from the beginning of his career is Wat u got. Now back to u I do know that u worship Krs1 and I know that u claimed to run around wit some old scho rapper who u never really say who it is. I do know u have talk sh1t bout most artists who Ain't over 40. and I do know that 90 percent if the time I have no f@@ckin idea Wat u are talkin bout.

    nikka,..all of biz's early gw records are better than will smith's early records.

    only good record will smith has is, summertime.

    even then it is spring again is just as much fun.

    not to mention biz's funniest moments are still better than all of will's on wax.
    if you went to a hiphop party,...
    no dj would play any early will smith records, before summertime, period.

    the crowd would go crazy if, these are spun;


    make the music with your mouth
    nobody beats the biz

    i can guarantee even bz markie doesn't spin early will smith records at realshyt when he dj's.

    biz would get request for make the music and nobody and not because he was the dj.

    you nikkaz are not culturally aware whatsoever.

    y'all lost than a motherfukker.

    I agree with you 100% on the shytiness of his later music

    but I think the responses in this thread tell you that what people enjoy/remember about his music is the sort of material he put out before the shiny suit gum-pop stuff. Not that he gets an "eternal pass", but when they remember back on the impact he made on the genre they'll remember the older stuff, not what his music career turned into.

    Noone cares that he "sold out".
