Rakim Blast 50 Cent?

Unread post by 'X' » May 8th, 2006, 4:20 pm

According to the website whudat.com Rakim the God Mc puts 50 Cent style on Blast, in a interview, Rakim said its a conscious decision to leave his street experiences and interactions with those doing street things (he knew and hung out with the original 50 Cent - one of the craziest Brooklyn killers in the 80’s) on the street. The quote: “I never sold drugs or nothing. but coming up in the hood I knew the code of the streets. I was in the hood since a young kid, man. And I was very observant. I watched how everybody did they thing. It wasn’t cool to talk about what went on on the block. Especially on a record.”

“I had people that was close to me that was doing what they do. I respect for doing what he got to do, I’ll let him know if it ain’t good, but still I respect that man he got to get his food. I got people that’s close to me was doing real things in the streets. For me to get on the mic and start talking about certain things.. It’s like three-dimensional right now, every time somebody get on the mic and mention some crime, you got 5-0 knocking at the door or tapping the phone or investigating this crew or this crew.”

“So I kinda seen it early. I didn’t want to extort the streets. I didn’t want to extort the hood, my dudes, or hip-hop. So I try to just keep it real, but at the same time it is a limitation. A lot of people today respect me for that, cause they call it, I didn’t give up the street codes. I respect what they do, but leave that over there and I used to just try to find words that sound good, man. See if I can move the crowd that way.”

The quotes below from the above article is some of the same things I've said that can be related to the internet, and so-called "gang websites"...
