        Brat and Bone

      • twista fell off, lupe just dumb in da head thinks he is a politician or sum shit, tech is just tech, common is fruity, royce is dope, did u mention da brat?? lol i will pretend u didnt, and bone i love bone but bone and doing shit like bone has done did in da past. surprised u didnt say em. oe obie.

      • insaneangelic

        Twista went indie cuz just like Lupe Atlantic just want him to do radio hits he want to do more street conscious songs look up Back to the basics. Lupe on that real Hip Hop giving us a much needed break from the mainstream fake criminal rap. People scared of Tech N9ne because he’ll out spit them. Common go hard but he confused on whether he wanna be conscious or Pop. Lyrically brat is off the charts not to mention the first female MC to go platinum. I did mention Em before Common, and while bone has diva problem nobody can touch them.

      • lupe dumb tho… if somebody likes his raps then they should avoid it when he opens his mouth to talk only dumb ish comes out lol.. “Lyrically brat is off the charts”, nah she ant even on the charts lol… tech is idk i dont feel it hes like the hood version of insane clown posse to me, common is a lame he sould stick to acting. To me royce is holding down the D or midwest more then anyone right now IMO
