'Hero', huh? Once again, standards have reeeeeeally fallen around here.

A successful 25-year-old finishes his HS education? We MUST tear him down.
 
2012-10-18 09:48:52 AM  
He's finally left Degrassi High? This is a momentous occasion!
 
2012-10-18 09:54:19 AM  
Eh. Good for him.

Hardcore. I don't think that word means what you think it does.

Why exactly is this heroic? 25-year old finally finishes school. Are there any legendary rappers out there with degrees?
 
2012-10-18 10:15:54 AM  
Another proud graduate of Degrassi High. I assume the school is wheel chair accessible.

Welcome to the hero club, Drake. I was inaugurated when I learned to tie my shoes in kindergarten.
 
2012-10-18 11:24:15 AM  
Good on ya', Aubrey. And you got it 3 years earlier than most other Canadians.

Don't they make the kids take classes with a tutor while working on set? If so, not impressed.

No class or talent.

This is going to eliminate any of the street cred he earned in that nightclub brawl with Chris Brown.

WTF is a hardcore rapper? Please tell me this is not an awful new genre/hybrid.

How did you miss the term "Hardcore Rap". You were in your teens when it was big.

I've heard it. Haven't heard that term in 20 years but I've heard it. Didn't gangsta rap replace hardcore rap? At any rate, I hate rap.

/likes some hardcore though.

I think it was used to distinguish groups like EPMD from softer rappers like, say, Tone loc

Maybe WuTang was Hardcore Rap and Big L was Gangster Rap. I am sure someone will come along and clear this up.

Hardcore rapper? You mean "the new equivalent of The Black Eyed Peas"? That joker came up with YOLO, has gotten caught 'freestyling' off his cell phone on radio shows, and has never yet written a good verse. He's a peacocking little pop shiateater...just a darker Justin Bieber.
 
2012-10-18 01:21:39 PM  
Good for him. If he really banged Rihanna he totally out kicked his coverage.

Go back and try to get a high school diploma? Why not?

I'm not sure if they have any actual degrees, but Nas and RZA are both significantly more intelligent than most people I know. Does that count?

I wouldn't really classify Big L as G rap. He was more underground, and MVP was far more mainstream, and I think his only hit he had (god rest his soul)

As for Wu, there was NOTHING out there like 36 Chambers when that dropped during my senior year of high school, everyone had that tape (yes, tape). Definitely hardcore, but everyone seemed to be listening to that back in the day...I think they launched that whole "hardcore is mainstream" vibe with that album.

While I have definitely drifted away from hip hop entirely, I eventually got that CD and still listen to it every now and then. I have it as part of my "when hip hop was good" collection.

As for the last comment "hardcore is mainstream", I am sure someone will come in to tell me that "Beasties, NWA, Run DMC, LL, et al. says hi". Fair point...


From 86 through 95, man that was just an amazing run of awesome hip hop. LL, the 4 I've mentioned, Public Enemy (...Nations of Millions...was the first album I ever purchased with my "own" money and Fear of a Black Planet still stands as one of the best hip hop albums in the past 25 years, EPMD, Eric B and Rakim, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Lords of the Underground (yeah, I liked em, so what?), A Tribe Called Quest (Midnight Marauders still get's regular play on my iphone). So many great artists back then.

To be a hip hop fan back then, is to know true bliss. The best decade of hip hop of all time IMO.
