“It’s moving slow? / What ya take a ni**a for?/ I’ma cock hammers and 44’s and nail ya ass to the floor”

 

 

There are a few things some Hip Hop fans ardently believe, that I steadfastly refuse have credence to them. For the sake time, I will only mention two at the moment.

“E-40 is the best rapper ever” (Yes I have met people who strongly adhere to that statement)

“I’m Serious” is better than “Trap Music”

The former I will delve into another time, the latter pertains to today’s “Moring Music”

I’ve had many people (mostly of southern origin) tell me “T.I’s debut is superior to its follow up “Trap Music” which propelled him to superstardom. After many earnest listing sessions I just don’t se….errr hear it, I and chalk up a portion of those sentiments to “Down Since Day One” syndrome.

While it could be said that NOTHING Hip Hop related is better than. “The Low End Theory”, people who say that “I’m Serious” is better than “Trap Music” sound like a wayward soul proclaiming “People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm” is superior to Tribe beyond certified, classic second release.

Anyway

“Trap Music” is a personal classic of mind and while some the reference on it are passé now, the earnestly, hunger, skill and sublime production of it, have stood the test of time.

Respect to The King this morning, who we should also, recognize as a living legend.
