Shyne Discovers Different Side of the Game

Old school rappers hating on today’s new school of hot shot spitters is far from anything new, but when a respected OG goes at the head of one of today’s lyrical chosen ones, there will be blood. Compton rapper Game has always held veteran MC Shyne in the utmost regards in his own music but that adoration was quickly discarded when the Shyne Po went at fellow Compton MC Kendrick Lamar’s debut, good kid m.A.A.d. city. Although hip hop has become watered down and occupied with candy-coated opinions (depending on who you ask) everyone’s entitled to his or her views on music, especially someone of Shyne’s stature.

More than harsh with his criticisms of the LP, the Belize-bred rapper dubbed the critically acclaimed effort “trash” despite its chart-topping debut and highly praised reception. Fortunately young Kendrick didn’t have to waste any bars responding to the misguided assessment of his debut, as big brother Game came to the rescue. Releasing his own scathing a cappella diss “Cough Up a Lung” this weekend, Chuck Taylor rightfully took up arms for his hometown comrade.
Though Shyne went against popular opinion and threw stones at Kendrick then hid behind the veil of constructive criticism, the basis of his argument quickly dissipated following his response to Game’s lyrical attack. Copping a plea and backpedaling, saying he wouldn’t have criticized GKMC if he knew Kendrick and Game were cool was the fatal blow to his initial stance. Not only did the sucker move paint the “Myer Lansky” rapper as a hater, it also destroyed any credibility as a respected critic for the genre the former Bad Boy MC once commanded.
Not to mention that most would agree (including my pastor, grandmother and dentist) that GKMC was a dope album full of stellar concepts and wordplay. Hopefully the next time Shyne Po decides to channel his inner “Mad Rapper” state of mind, maybe he’ll use that energy to go in the booth and show the young boys how its done. L’chiam.

Thanks for expressing your ideas on this blog. In addition, a delusion regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosures is that the bank will not take my repayments. There is a certain amount of time which the bank can take payments here and there. If you are too deep inside the hole, they’re going to commonly call that you pay that payment in whole. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of repayments at all. If you and the bank can be capable to work anything out, the foreclosure method may cease. However, should you continue to neglect payments in the new program, the foreclosed process can just pick up where it was left off.
