Like Wtf, I'm a thug Haha as tupac says, these old school rappers are reap performance not bull that doesn't makes since or some one that talks like they got chest pains, of even auto tune no affence to anyone but instead of rapping about puss, money or drugs let's rap about how the government is, life struggles and ghetto peace, cause there's poverty everywhere
