Damn, Casper schools must be worse than I thought. I thought the brown was just intuitive. WTF else would it mean.
Glad you're getting outta there Mike. I think the second hand meth may be getting to you.
And realdad, I think you misunderstood or something. Busta = nubian, not gangsta, that's what I said. And I had forgotten about the WCW Cru Dre days. Still you got to agree that he pretty much defined the rap gangsta that could appeal to the mainstream with crazy fresh beats and stay gangsta with the rhymes.
That Eazy-E shit is hilarious though. I don't think Eazy ever got over Dre finiding Snoop and making millions with him. NWA is pretty OG at least for rap. Ice-T is/was cool but his style and beats just could never really appeal to the masses, which I guess is keeping it gangsta but not really making the best music possible.
If you want some straight gangsta that never really crossed over, now this is taking me bakc to eigth grade here, but I was into the Geto Boys, Scarface, 8ball & MJG. Hard to imagine I liked this shit cause I had no idea what half of what they were saying meant and at the same time I was listenin to the Bboys, Tribe, De La, Jungle Brothers, Wu etc. It just all got jumbled into rap until I was old enough to break it down.
I'll leave you with one of my favorites from that era that is pretty gangsta but still kind of light and almost nubian.
