Hip Hop: The art of story telling and lyrics.. Is is dead?

HIP HOP, how many of you know exactly what it means. Not many huh? Exactly! What is this Hip Hop you ask? Hip Hop started in the Bronx in the 70's and soon spread throughout New York. Hip Hop is a mix of many cultures.From the Turntables to the Graffiti .. Just for a quick description, Hip Hop quickly grew and became a multicultural leader in fashion and the music industry.

Well here is a thought, name your favorite artist.. OK.. now listen to his/her music. now tell us the story they recited.... we'll wait!!! That's because unless you are a die hard ol' skool Hip Hop fan, you know absolutely nothing of the "Art of story Telling". Which is a rare occasion in today's Hip Hop.  Now don't get it twisted there are so many talented individuals in the game right now and their ability to change with times is amazing.

OK!... here is your next quiz, name a few lyrical artist, and in some occasions I've been heard called"boring artist" or "I can't dance to this" just to name a few. So can you name any..........? Did your list include J Cole , Wale, Meek Mill, Kendrick Lamar, or Joe Budden ... Nah I doubt it. Why? mainly because sometimes you people look at heir music as "lame" which is far from the truth.

Now let's start with Joe Budden. I'm sure may of you have a few rash thoughts about this cat here. So yea yea yea .. he has had his issues with the drug thing, which we pray he gets that under control. also His love life. But, how many have actually listened to any of his music, I highly doubt anybody really listened to it. This guys last two albums " No Love Lost" and "Some Love Lost" were basically a "book on a CD" the lyrics were insane and he told the stories of his life. You can either late or you feel as if you are there as the track spills into your soul. Dope right. I even remember hearing a DJ/Producer criticize the beats, com on man.. you don't deserve to be a DJ if that's all you heard. But the point is he go this Hip Hop and story telling under wraps...Give him his props ..very under rated dude.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/born-sinner-deluxe-version/id651105499?uo=4&at=1l3vqPoNext on the let us discuss J Cole... "speechless" . Still tryna figure out why he doesn't get the love he deserves.I mean we talkin bout the same guy that the GOAT Jay Z signed to Roc Nation, the same guy Nas gave props to.. We talkin bout two of the greatest EVER!!!. So why does he not get that RESPECT. His Recent Album  2014 Forest Hills Drive, INSANE album. No singles, no features just straight drop.. No wait he #1 right now .. I guess he done got his respect.. "HOLLYWOOD COLE" keep doing you Son! And all  u Haters go get the Album and get some real music in ya life.

Wale... yup.. MMG's very own poet behind the mike. This guy here can out flow anybody..BUt the nay sayers say all he talk about is love, or he not "Gangsta" enough. I wish i could hear what some people definition of gangsta is..Its guaranteed this guy music will vibe out any arena. 'Just Wait" and Listen.

Check this tho.. Its a few more that could be named , but as they say that's too much to type. Drake,yea he sing and rap.. SO WHAT!!! He can kill any track and you understand the meaning of every title to every track, the best at what he does. The Barb Nicki...yea she got it on lock... An lets not forget the Up n coming 3DNATEE. New Orleans Breead and can shut most dudes down. check her out she got many stories to tell..

Alright alright.. thas enough real for you folks. Just don't forget Hip Hop is not just the glitz and Glamor. Its our way to express. A new Genre. Its versatile , the fashion creator, HIP HOP is running the word, Lets not waste it. Keep the REAL music going The Lyrics, the stories, most importantly the LOVE of the craft. Lets make more movements. Your answer no "The Art" isn't dead we just only have a select few that still possess that skill. This has been a IAMTHEINFLUENCE.COM moment by  non other than "Mr IAMTHEINFLUENC" as we like to say "Keep it Hip Pop and may God bless"


Joe Budden "She Don't Put it Down"



 JOE BUDDEN is back!!!! Yesterday Budden released his 3rd studio album "No Love Lost" yesterday February 5th. With the 1st single "She don't Put it Down" ft Fabolous, Lil Wayne and Tank. This single def seems to show he is back. Other features on the album include Wiz Khalifah and French Montana. Looks like Budden pulled out all the stops with this one.

With some sources only predicting that Budden is only gonna sell 25,000 to 30,000 the 1st week, it seems like he has some HATERS out there. Obviously they havent paid close attention to the album. He has always been a very underated MC. Which brings me to believe that most are only paying attention to the issues he has had in his personal life. Maybe its those that just watch "Love and Hip Hop" and judge his music off of that. He is a Lyracist and some only wanna hear a good party anthem, but that isnt Hip Hop. Since when did telling a legit story in your muzic become irrelavent. 

The fact of the matter is "No Love Lost" is a Lyricist album and IAMTHEINFLUENC gives it a thumbs up. Joe Budden def has our love and respect over here. Its Hip Hop telling stories and keepin it real. Good album go cop it and always remeba KEEP IT HIP HOP.
