When the person many call the greatest producer in hip-hop teamed up with the person many call the greatest rapper, they came up with this track...

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/5wBTdfAkqGU?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/5wBTdfAkqGU?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

That's a straight up party track, and one of the most recognizable tracks in the world. Once an old girlfriend of mine asked me how can I claim this track was real hip-hop, and I said because it's still played at parties.

Hip-Hop is party music, you always heard me talking about how Fresh Prince was real hip-hop. Simply put, if it's from the heart, and it's real to the person making the music, then it's real hip-hop. If it's manufactured hot garbage by a label trying to make some money, then it ain't hip-hop. To me, this is as hip-hop as it gets....

Dude was cocky,  bragging about being #1 and he was speaking from the heart. Especially this line.... Aiyyo I'm tired of people judgin what's real Hip-Hop, Half the time you be them niggas who fuckin album flop, YOU KNOW! Boat done sank and it ain't left the dock, C'MON! Mad cause I'm hot; HE JUST - mad cause he not!"
That shit was in Nelly's heart, and that's how he felt and it's real. I don't care what you think of Nelly, that's some real shit right there.

Too me, when the money gets involved it's not "real" hip hop anymore.  Those two songs you listed were made for the masses and to generate sales.  Not to move the music forward.  The more mainstream = the less Hip Hop.  That Nelly track especially was pure pop.

Yet you'd argue that this is "real" hip-hop?

I fucks with what KRS once said. There has to be a balance. It can't all be commercial, but it can't all be hardcore too. There has to be a balance to move the music forward. California Love is played GLOBALLY. That puts 2Pac around the world and then you have people in Africa and Latin America listening to all his other songs too.
