spending so much energy (50.000+ posts!?) on a board that sucks so much? good grief.

I've never had a Skyzoo album that felt slapped together or weak.
Granted, I've never been a big Lox/Jada fan so I may have missed an album or mixtape over the years, but all them Lox/D-Block projects would have a couple of tracks I liked enough for a playlist but the albums themselves had a lot of tracks I'd skip.
__ I don't like the beat anymore because its just a loop. ALC didn't FLIP IT ENOUGH!

Sky took that scene in Menance and explained the environment that allowed that scene to happen.
There was an undercurrent of people looking down on black folk in that community. They have their preconceived notions about them. They think they ain't shit, etc. Then...
I feel sorry for your mother. And shit goes left.
And instead of O-Dog destroying the tape, he passes it around with his peers and his fame grows.
O-Dog needs to be accepted by his friends so he sells the tape around the hood. And O-Dog needs to be accepted/respected by those store owners so he enforces it.
Some quotes from the song that I think support this:
It's like knowing where the cameras in the walls are, And they were already talking for you before the talk starts, (preconceived notions. Here's what they think about you)
And your direction comes into question like it was On Star, It's either turn it on for the tape or turn into wall art, (The hood, what they think about you, and all of the odds against you, you either the hunter or the prey)
Now there's a motive on top of that tape rolling On top of that other motive that same tape ain't notice (the other motive being acceptance)
t's all context, but get all that acclaim and you'll get to love it, It starts as a flash, it grows into fluorescence, It goes into an essence that poses when you press it, like the tape do, It dares you to mimic it like "son what your aim do?”, And however you fit in that light is how it takes you, Like, word to a shooter's touch, steady as ever like you shooting up, Brighter than ever, you ain't losing much, And validation is everything that you knew it was, You finger prints on a bottle but that ain't proving much, For the importance of needing importance, Until its loud enough where somebody's seeing you for it, And calling for everything you did it for, as dull as what you living for, Promised it would never turn dim at all
This is all O-Dog showing the tape around the hood. Validation tying everything together.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's Lupe, 3k and Skyzoo as far as poetry goes
