    @ throwdown, do you know why Jay Z has an album by the same name? that’s what it got to do with hip hop. The tales of the hood, the drugs etc that hip hop talks about, that’s what it’s gotta do with hip hop. These guys ran harlem, one of the hip hop strong holds, and you still don’t know what that’s got to do with hip hop? Why do you guys talk like some hip hop taliban?
