Nope! I am a big slim shady hater. Snoop Dogg is cool though. A few months ago I segregated my music collection [separating Rap, Blues, Jazz and Bob Marley from all the rock stuff]. I was shocked to see just how Old Skool my tastes were. I have all the early Public Enemy, Ice T, Run DMC, Too Short, Geto Boys, Tone Loc and NWA plus related. But the only Hip Hop that I really kept up with post 1993 is Cypress Hill. After "Doggystyle" most of the Gangsta Rap stuff just got real played out and contrived. By the time white kids started talking Ebonics and wearing the upside down backwards visors I really started to hate everything. Though just a few days ago I was flipping channels and saw a new Q-tip video that kicked ass.
i was a huge fan of the early gansta rap. nation of millions, straight out of compton all that. for me the good shit ended after seeing ice-t do the double set at lala with body count & his regular shit . everyone got politically correct after that or would rather rap about their rings and bank account.
