Old Beef New Biz

What is happening to hip-hop? I haven’t heard a good joint lately, but I am glad Jay-Z is back and will drop his new album Kingdom Come. Now I am hoping both Nas, who will release Hip-Hop is Dead in November, and Hov will resuscitate rap music. It’s been way too damn long. But before these two enemy-turned-into-business hommies get their rhymes on, let’s take it back to the good old lyrical battles: Hov “Take Over; ” Nas “Ether;” Hov went “Super Ugly.”
