When will real hip hop return. If Lil Wayne a.k.a "Young Weezy" is the saviour of hiphop then God help us. What about "spitters like Skillz, Saigon, Murs, or Black Thought and the Roots and Little Brother. When will true hip hop return. No disrespect to the "dirty South" but some of this nonsense from downthere has to go. Maybe it is because am a old school hip hop head from when you can hear Hip Hop on WEBB,V103 and WEAA. I live on the west coast now and it seems the "Bama Revolution" has taking over here too.

For a journalist you should have been able to research and find out that Wayne was late because he was doing television and press in Times Square and had to drive through rush hour traffic to make it to Baltimore for the album release concert. It WAS the actual release date! I'm just happy of all the places in the world he chose Baltimore to do his album release!!!

Thats why I stick with the old school rappers. Some of these new rappers could care less about their fans. Their hearts are not in their music, but the money that they are paid. I can honestly say that I have never gone to any of these new school rappers concerts, and I never will. I will never promote some of these brothers. I don't listen to them on the radio, or watch them on B.E.T., therefore why would I pay to see them hop around on stage with tatoos and an entourage of other brothers behind them. I have better things to do with my money.

i do agree when u think about it lil wayne was lil disappointing for not being on time, but when he did get on stage he was amazing, i love him so much i can't wait until he comes back...oh yeah and about back in the day performance as everyone can see things are changing and until someone does something amazing don't speak on it

I disagree with the journalist on this one who HAS to be an older gentlemen at least 40 who simply cannot connect with this generation, the era of lil wayne. Clearly he was apologetic although he didnt physically said it, he expressed how he's nothing without us, the fans. I was there, great performance, just tardy. And who cares about those poetic artists who lacks delivery and stage presence? Thats what its all about and Weezy has it. Bigups to all his haters!

Being on C.P. time doesn't cut it is unprofessional! I'm not a hater for not liking this genre of hip hop. But if it sucks it sucks! Here we are in 2008 with the most significant time our lives( e.g. Obama-Election, IraqWar, High Cost living and gas $$$, and black folks still catching hell -post Katrina). And we still have fools talking about themselves, their money, women, cars, rims and their ugly ass grillz. Am not against these dudes doing their own thing but there have to be some intelligence and substance some where along the line.

What
else were the stupid black people who paid their months rent to see another future convienence store robber going to do? Go home and get shot. Black people want to cheer for people who stick it to the man and are rude.

I definitely feel like Hip-Hop is being given a bad rap because of this particular artist. Lil Wayne is a good artist. He is not in the "real hip-hop" category but his flows are impressive. He has come a long way since the Hotboys. A lot of concerts are the same as mentioned in the article. Therefore, I choose not to attend. I would definitely rather listen to my Ipod rather then pay to see concerts of today. Im not a huge Lil Wayne fan but he gets his respect for signing a record deal at age 12 and still in the game in his middle 20's.

yeah that's true he is sick and does have talent that's why people pay so much to see him but at the same time the fans are what makes CD sells so he was wrong for a sorry ass show when those people waited all that time in a hot ass arena to see him and he gives a sorry performance without a hint of a apology without his fans hes not shit and that's real because we are the ones who spend money so they can make money so no matter how good he is hes wrong for that and he still needs to apologize because bad reviews like that will make no one want to book him because they are going to feel as if hes not going to deliver he has a hot album he just needs to open his eyes and see that the fans also makes his career because if he looses his fan base then whats left
