What happened to Hip-Hop? What happened when the lyrics actually meant something? Now all you hear from rappers now is getting money and just talkin s*** and not doing anything about it? What happened to all the Gangstas? Like Snoop, Ice Cube, and Dr Dre? What happened to the overall gangsta feeling in hip hop? Why do rappers now wear the tightest cloths they can find and talk about the dumbest s***? What happened to being real?
The Top Ten
If Suge Knight had not existed, then the two greatest rappers of all time would almost definitely still be alive. Therefore, if not directly, he did in some way cause their deaths, and because Tupac and Biggie were the epitome of hip-hop, you could say that Suge killed hip-hop.
Because Everyone knows because of him 2pac and Biggie are dead
If it wasn't for Suge Knight N.W.A wouldn't have broken up, Tupac and Biggie would probably still be alive, and all the awful artist now wouldn't have a career. - donovanthorn
