If you've never seen the entire show (famous for "The South got somethin' to say!", "Come to Death Row!", and "The East Coast don't love Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg?"), I've uploaded it in its entirety (minus the opening minutes of Death Row's performance) to YouTube. Check it out before someone finds a reason to block it.

...blah blah, your making wild assumptions, fact is IMO Your Old Droog and Bronson are talented MC's, has nothing to do with being white. Strange that your still on that actually. Anyway, I'm black as the night, and long live creative, thoughtful, well crafted music...and yes that shit your referencing was largely wack. If you think the largely negative vibe those cats brought didn't influence the art negatively, you were not paying attention. Peace my BROTHER?

The judging Committee managed to do a better job than the Grammy's in avoiding the "Best New Artist" Curse by choosing Outkast over the other 3 groups (Any other year Bone Thugs probably would have deserved the win in that category)

Before then, he produced half of K-Solo's 'Time's Up' album in 1992 ("Was on the DL with The Squad, but Solo couldn't hold it back"). He was on the skit before "Gz Up, Hoes Down" on the original pressings of 'Doggystyle.'
The song he performed on the Source Awards, "U Better Recognize," was on the 'Murder Was The Case' soundtrack.

Looking back that whole east-west split we made so much about came and went in the course of an hour. Somehow we turned that into nearly allowing our culture to be destroyed. John Singleton was so on point.
and that last category was bananas. so much is different if nas or scarface win that award. i love outkast but believe they won by being nominated. Bad Boy seemed to get emboldened into the excess of the shiny suit era and Death Row metastasized in response. greatest what if in hip-hop, IMO.
