      I love hip hop but lately I have been confused on where the essence of hip hop has gone. It appears true hip hop resides within us but not the radio my ears are constantly being pierced with saturated music.

      NAS, Jay-z, B.O.B, Drake, Kanye West and Eminem are true lyricist aw yea and Lyric who is me. The underground music scene seems to have better artist out there than main stream.
