christopher wallace was from one of the worst drug infested neighborhoods in the country. he wrote about what he knew.

bob marley was from country going through civil strife. he wrote about what he knew.

there is no difference.

you want to talk about quality of music? well... that's a whole 'nother argument. but don't pull the "ghetto ass negative hip hop" argument. you write about what you know. that's why bono's written so many songs about the troubles, that's why bruce springsteen's written so many songs about jersey... why billy joel writes about long island... why the beach boys write about california.

you write about what you know.

And this is why I write about Amstel Lights, The Mets, and Blue Crack

Listen, I want to clear up what I meant, I was just baffled that they would put 2 artists together on a song, one wrote songs called " me and my bitch", with lyrics like " talk slick, and I'll beat you right", and " i put my glock to your headpiece" With another artist who sang about standing up for rights, dont give up the fight, and about " one love". I understand I could have left the ghetto ass negative comment out, but I just dont see how these 2 artists have anything in common with the messages they both stood for, both very different messages.

Don't worry. You're right. Bob Marley was the son of a white father and black mother. He was constantly ridiculed as a child because of his mixed heritage.

And they lived in Trenchtown, named Trenchtown because of the open sewer trench that ran through the town.

He knew hate, and sang songs about love and progress. He wrote about changing what he knew and the things he didn't like.

Biggy wrote about what he knew as well. He just got off on it. Plus, there's good $ in being a hard ass.

Aah, I see what you mean now Deadman. I suppose people could argue for the musical side of mixing the two artists rather than the background they both came from. If it sounds good I honestly won't be complaining
