      People who don’t know who they are can stay in the dark. Their original fanbase will buy there new shit and support. Anyone too young to know who they are is too dumbed down to get it anyway.

    • “THAT 20 YEARS LATER THESE M?OTHAFF?UCKAS TRYING TO REUNITE FOR THE” ?
      FOR THE SIMPLE FACT R_REAL_TALK THOSE MY AGE NEED HIPHOP FOR PEOPLE 32 AND UP. MANY OF US 30 TO 50 CAN’T RELATE THAT SHIT THEY PLAY ON MAIN STREAM RADIO. THEY NEED TO COME BACK EVERYBODY DON’T LIKE LIL WAYNE,DRAKE,MGK AND NICKI MINAJ. YEAH THEY ARE TALENTED, BUT ITS JUST NOT MY FLAVOR OF RAP MUSIC.

       I’M MORE OF ROOTS TYPE OF DUDE AND THEY FIT THAT BILL. THATS WHY THEY SHOULD COME BACK.. SOMEONE NEEDS TO COME UP WITH A RADIO STATION BROADCASTING IN EVERY CITY THAT SUPPORTS ALTERNATIVE RAP, HIPHOP AND NEOSOUL AND ALSO ONE THATS NOT AFRAID BREAK NEW ARTISTS IN THAT CATEGORY.  

       ALSO I’M TIRED OF HEARING SOULESS RAP ALTHOUGH NOT ALL OF THE MUSIC IS SOULESS ITS SOME PEOPLE THATS STILL HIPHOPIN WELL LIKE MIGUEL,STALLEY,WALE,KANYA WEST,RICK ROSS, LUPE AND JAY THEY ALL GOT A FEW JOINTS THAT STILL GOOD.

      OTHER THAN THAT THE REST OF THE SHIT ON THE RADIO I CAN’T STAND BECAUSE THE PRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND MUSIC DOESN’T MOVE I.  LIKE THEY SAY MUCH OF ITS WATER DOWN WITH NO SPICES ADDED NO SOULFOOD. I WANT SOMETHING THAT SPINS MY HEAD AROUND LIKE WHEN DOUG FRESH CAME OUT WITH THE “SHOW” OR MOB DEEPS “BURN” OR PUBLIC ENEMIES “REBEL WITHOUT A PAUSE”. AIN’T TO MANY ARTISTS MAKING GROUND BREAKING SHIT LIKE THAT TODAY UNLESS YOU KNOW OF A UNKNOWN ARTISTS CIRCULATING AROUND THE UNDER GROUND ON THE YOUTUBE DIAL LIKE 
      RITA J “NO REGRETS” OR HISD “SPACE UP”

      The support is not their because not enough people know about it. Also the music is not as good and if the music is good and banging people are STILL too STUPID and SELFISH to buy and support THE album.  Many 90’s artists   can still have life and  maybe Platinum to gold Success if people would stop been stuck on themselves and learn to think. And by thinking what do I mean if the album is tight pick that shit up and  spread the love via word of mouth. 
       I’m all for HIPHOP TYPE ARTISTS TO COME BACK

  • Uhhh… I can’t believe that Shabazz Palaces didn’t make the list as the seriously best side project.

  • WHO GIVE A DAMN?

  • Di-Gable Planets need to comeback plus they are and already established brand.  Most cats who say they shouldn’t comeback are just struggling artists who want to be in the rap game badly or want to move more units.  BUT GUESS WHAT? NOT EVERYBODY IS  GOING TO MAKE IT AND NOT EVERYBODY IS GOING TO LIKE YOU GUYS SHITTY MUSIC THAT YOU POST IN BLOG REPLIES
    Although I’m just fan of the music,  and  its few more artists that I think that should be getting a little more recognition from the underground the from the likes of
    1.Rita J “NO Regrets”
    2.HISD (HUESTON INDEPENDENT SPIT DISTRICT)
    3.Amanda Seales
    4.Boog Brown
    and many more artists in a similar category that DI-GABLE PLANETS IS IN THAT I WILL VOUCH FOR 

    LATEST MUSIC FROM LADYBUG
    “Real Talk -Encore Feat Ladybug”  YOUTUBE THAT JOINT Its NICE
