    It’s not that folks have to necessarily be pining for the ’80s and ’90s, some of us just still have standards and can’t relate to talentless coons.

    You people are tripping madly! Joe Budden has beeen knocking it out of the park with each project he’s made since ’07. He’s a great artist and don’t ever confuse him with bad hip hop. Additionally, have you ever heard of a little group called Slaughterhouse?– the most lyrically-talented group in all of current hip hop. Look I love 90’s rap, but how bout you listen to an artist instead of assuming he’s bad because he’s on a reality show. You are missing out.
