Some of em can actually rap half alright but the shoot a mother blucka things pretty lame. Rap about petty hustling and your 4 on 1 fights. Be real about it. I know they have some kind of relation to Brian Williams too.

James Wilder, are you serious? Because of his relative being a member of the Street Alumni colors your opinion of him? Brian Williams is a stand up guy and has the best interest of Newport in his heart.

i have to give them an A + for effort. I am personally not a fan of rap so my evaluation of them would be pointless.. but at least they are trying to make something of themselves which then motivates other kids to make something of themselves.

Yeah, I'd be proud if they were mine. Their next song should be called, "Shout Out From Eddyville". Then they can call themselves Maximum Security Alumni.

A lot of crap if you ask me.

Yup. Rap is to music as Etch-A-Sketch is to art (sorry to denigrate Etch-A-Sketch enthusiasts).

Anybody can draw a box with an etch-a-sketch but some people create masterpieces. It's the same thing with rap music. Bob Dylan has nothing on some of the musicians out there today as far as being a poet goes. Everything laid out for the consumer sucks except for fictional story telling. The news and music is all a bunch of Shiite ran through a group of people who know little of either. Most people will never know good rap music because they haven't heard it. Look at some of the better-known underground people like Sage Francis, Atmosphere, or Immortal Technique.

If you say it doesn't take talent to whip up beats like that on the tables or have great story telling all while twisting the ever-loving titty nipples out of syllables I call you're bluff. Most people can't even do it bad like the Shiite you see on T.V and that Shiites elementary in the world of rap. I agree that it's a shame people doing mash ups of Dr. Seuss meets godfather songs are the highest paid in this genre of music. I also agree that itís a shame these kids are trying to recreate it.

I personally am a big supporter/fan of these boys, I mean they get a bad wrap cuz of hear say, and yeah some songs may be durogatory or vulgar or dont fit your tex book way of living life, but at the end of the day its ENTERTAINMENT! I think that is what most people fail to realize. They are telling a story threw music whether it be a story you like or not. I've heard songs from this group that made me laugh, some that made me cry, yes I said cry I guess you people were to ignorant to actually give an open ear, and of course like any group there is a few I dont particularly care for, but that isnt taking away from the creativity of what they do. I'm not saying that I agree with all the things said in their songs but I stand behind a young talented group of kids. Their songs touch base with alot of different types of people. Whether it be the party kid, the hustler struggling, the person who lost someone, or even just your everyday normal person. That is what I feel seperates these boys from anything else around here that I've heard. Everybody is entitled to their own opinions, but I think alot of you people just want to label them "wannabes" or "bad kids" and for what exact reason?? Do you know them personally? Have you walked in their shoes? Do you understand that not everything is to be taken literally? Whether or not what I've said will alter your opinion on these boys I feel they'll continue to make strides in music. I've listened to any and all genres of music, from country to rock to STREET ALUMNI and these boys are talented little BASTARDS! So come on people lighten up its 2009 quit bein so stereotypical!!!!

Check out their personal MySpace pages--they are all drinking & smoking (something that doesn't look like cigarettes). These guys are pretty young. I hope they don't fall off of the right path if they plan on having a future! Hope they follow their dreams and find some success somewhere. Good luck to them. Hope they stay sober and focused.
