“Conscious Lyricists”

Persia: There aint been no Hip Hop on the radio in years….they calling it Hip Hop, but it aint Hip Hop.

Lisa L.: you are for sure right girl!

Varian R.: HAVEN’T LISTEN TO THE RADIO IN YEARS…BYPASS WHILE CHANGING CD’S YEAH…THAT ALL

Rayn: No doubt! Hip-Pop is NOT Hip-Hop!

Varian R.: HIP-POP…HUHHH…WON’T GO THAT FAR….JUST RAP MUSIC…THAT’S WHAT IT IS…DON’T DISRESPECT THE CULTURE….

Rayn: The distinguishment is intended to protect the culture, not disrespect it!

Varian R.: THE WAY YOU CAME WITH IT I TOOK IT….HIP-POP”’NELLY IF YOU REALLY WANT IT TO BE SOMETHING

Varian R.: OTHER THEN THAT CASE CLOSED

Rayn: Well, you were mistaken, then, since I made my comment with all due respect. 🙂

Varian R.: YOU SAID WHAT YOU SAID….I GO BY WHAT I KNOW….YOU AND THIS HIP POP…..NOT IN MY LEAGUE…..DON’T SAY IT WAS TO PROTECT UNLESS THAT’S WHAT YOU STAND FOR HOMIE….ONLY FUCK WITH LYRICAL….EVERYTHING ELSE IS JUST RAP TO ME
