Official "Hip-Hop Confessions" Thread
« on: June 23, 2009, 06:45:35 AM »
-I've been listening to the DJ Premier/Royce Da 5'9" track "Friends" for 10 years, even used an excerpt for my ringtone, and only realized yesterday Royce's "friend" in the song is his dick.

-Back in 1993 I went to best buy to get 2pac's second album after seeing "I Get Around" and "Keep Ya Head Up" on MTV... then I didn't buy it just because it was titled "Strictly 4 My Niggaz" (and I was white... still am white, by the way).

-I was watching MTV in the morning before school and saw the very end of Snoop's "Doggy Dogg World" track.  It was a retro video, but I actually thought it was something really old.  I went to school and told my friends that I caught one of Snoop's really old video's from before he was famous.

-I thought that Aaliyah's "Back And Forth" was on the Above The Rim soundtrack just because they were playing basketball in the video, and I liked the song, so I went to buy the soundtrack and was dissapointed to see it wasn't on there.  When I heard the Dogg Pound track "Big Pimpin" I thought that Snoop wasn't a killer anymore now that he had money and that he had become a pimp.  I thought all his songs from then on would sound the same.

-I didn't believe Snoop really "did drugs".  I thought he was just rappin about it (for whatever the reason).  Because when I was 11 I thought that there was no way he could be such a great rapper if he was "on drugs", lol.

-I like the Chronic album so much in 1993 that I went to the record store to try to find other Snoop Doggy Dogg or Dr. Dre cd's.  I couldn't find any, but then I found "Concrete Roots"!!

-When I first heard Doggystyle, I thought I had the wrong cd because the un-censored versions of the "Gin and Juice" and "What's My Name" were so much different.  

-When Warren G came out with Regulators I told my friend the only song I liked on it was "Recognize" because Warren G's music was soft, but that since he made that song with Snoop that it was a harder track.  I didn't realize then it was just a sample Warren used on the hook "Ya'll, bustaz better recognize" and that it wasn't an actual Snoop and Warren G collabo.

-In summer 98 I went to the store to by King Tee "Thy Kingdom Come", the lady said they didn't have it, and I thought she was just too lazy to look.  I went and grabbed the Source off the magazine rack and showed her that it said, King Tee "Thy Kingdom Come" IN STORES NOW, because I thought this was proof that they had to have it in stores.  I was pissed at the store clerk... turns out the album didn't end up dropping till 2002, lol.

 
...I have a lot more I will post more later

I was a huge No Limit head back in 97-99.  I bought Soula Slim's album Give it to em Raw just because he looked so fucking ghetto.  Was a good cd though.

- I used to want to be the 5th member of The Hot Boys. I use to dress with bandanas all over. Legs, head, arms, wrists and sag my pants like crazy. I used to get the $ sign chains from the 50 cent machines outside Kmart. Bling bling.

- I refused to buy a eastcoast CD, no matter how dope, all the way until DMX's first album, then for some reason I thought it was OK to go back and buy all of Nas's albums.

- I stole a demo copy of Kingdom Come from King Tee (i think like 3 tracks) from my college radio station, never got a chance to listen to it 'cause it was stolen. Irony

- I use to freestyle at work for like one straight hour, and really wished I could remember like 1/4th of what I said, most my keystyles came from those freestyles

- I could not stop listening to Immortal Technique for like 2 years straight. My cousin called my out and then I really haven't listen to him since except for his 3rd World CD

- I use to try to break dance, so when I heard unedited tapes (Ice Cube, Eazy E among others) I started putting the middle figure in every other move thinking my dancing was "Parental Advisory" (I was 12)

- My cousin gave my first tape, Eazy Does It, but I was always afraid to put it on the cursing side 'cause my dad might hear.

lol.. yeah, I think a lot of us here at the forum took the East Coast/West Coast beef seriously and wouldn't support East Coast artists.   I remember when Dre denounced gangsta rap in the summer 96 cover article of the Source, I was like... "man, I really have to turn my life around", I started trying to be more positive in my life after that.

my mom bought a coolio- it takes a theif cassette on clearance many years prior. i found it in my moms sewing room, and one day i opened it up to play it but realised i no longer owned a tape deck. i then gave it to a poor people charity.

i bought obie trices cd so that i could win a trip to see eminem in the studio. the first copy i bought did not have the "golden ticket". I returned that copy and bought another one. it also did not win but decided to keep it because i thought that 2 returns in 15 minutes would not be cool and i would be banned from media play for life. when i walked to the store all i copuld think about was flying up to detroit. when i walked home i was disappointed

- i once tried to get my mom to listen to hip hop in the car and try to explain why its not just a bunch of curse words


- i learned how to dance like omarion so when i went to the club and did it on a female, she got intimidated... hip hop fact: Females usually dont have any rhythm and go to the club just to "SHAKE IT" and show off.. try this: next time your grinding on a female try to do it with rhythm youll be like are we listening to the same song?? i hear tupac all around the world, you must be hearing some garth brooks


- i use to think jungle was where hip hop was going because KRS one did a couple of jungle tracks


-i showed up to protest for the wake up show, when it went off of the air on 100.3 the beat in l.a. and they're were numerous posts about it on the internet, and no one had the gall to show up.

- When i was younger i wrote a song about big tits, cars and weed to perform in one of my music classes. Luckily i didnt have to do it and instead pressed pre-recorded beats on a keyboard while another kid rapped.

- I refused to listen to any 50 Cent music for most of 2005 because it was all that was on the radio

- I pretended to like old classics when I was younger just to make me more hip hop.

- When i was younger I took off all my Eminem music from my Ipod cause i didnt think he was gangster enough...

- First explicit rap songs I heard were on the Slim Shady LP. SOme kid snuck a cd player into school and we all crowded round to listen to My Name Is. Me and most of the other kids shouted boring when any other track came on.

very very good topic, something tells me it will end up in "classic" category.

- when i was young, i thought 2pac and makaveli were diferent persons.

- ........                 i thought hip-hop and rap were completely diferent genres of music.

- ........                 i couldnt find out what words like "da", "ya", "g",etc. ment.

- ........                 i thought the "parental advisory explicit lyrics/content" logo was DEATH ROW logo and thought
                           "all these rappers" were down with snoop and pac.

- ........                 i thought big syke and notorious BIG were the same ppl...before i checked the credits in the CD booklet,
                           all i had was a tape with no credits and i thought syke and BIG were same because of the voice..

- ........                 i used to boykott east coast rap and throw up the dub in every pic i took,
                           sag my pants, wear long necklaces, chains,etc., to look like a "rapper"

more to come.....

95% of active members in the West Coast section have never listened to a East Coast rapper.

During the West/East beef I was so pro-West Coast I used to get into arguments with this kid on my bus everyday and my reason for West being better was that they sold more records. And I was so pro-West that when Pac died I refused to listen to anything from Bad Boy although I liked the songs Biggie was putting out and the day Biggie died my mom told me and I said "So..." damn I feel bad now cause as I grew older Biggie became a favorite but I did buy Ready To Die and Life After Death in 94/97 when they dropped although I hated the East.

- I used to make BET Top 25 lists, ya know the music countdown show, lol, anyways I used to make like 16 hundred lists and Juvenile's Back That Azz Up was always number one. I used to believe that was the greatest rap record ever, for the longest.

- Than Nelly came out.... and I thought Country Grammar was the best thang since sliced bread. One year I dressed up as son for Halloween and I even fuckin' made the damn #1 chain out cardboard and tin foil. Still gots it too. It was for a contest and I was so pissed I lost.

- I used to recite DMX lines like crazy and before I knew somethang was wrong wit it..I was in the back car with my neighbors and they moms and I remember screaming the 'suck my dick' part of Up In Here and they was all like 'Oh My God, no, man' LMAO, than one day in school I was going 'Ya'll gonna make me lose my mind, up in here, up in here', than my manz goes to me 'nah boy you singin' it wrong it's not up in here it's up the hill' so I'm like no it ain't, nigga you dumb? So I go home that day and me and a whole buncha niggas was sittin' under a tree chillin' it's all quiet and my DUMBASS starts singin' 'Ya'll gonna make me lose my mind, up the hill, up the hill'...I got clowned on for dayz....

as far as "confessions", i guess these may do:


-the song "Changes" by 2pac is so played out.....yet it's the song that got me into 2pac when i was 11

-i own two ICP cd's and only one BIGGIE cd  (i downloaded Life After Death lol)

-until my ex room mate turned me on to Gang Starr i used to ignore their shit because the name "Gang Starr" was lame to me LOL
