Duug Fresh Hip Hop Blog

Posted by: Rohan Kohli (02/24/09)
Duug Fresh from The Higher has updated his AP.net hip-hop blog.
Blog Entrywhat up kids?! Its your boy Duug Fresh back for another week of Hip Hop According to Duug Fresh...Everybody has an opinion on Kanye West...good or bad...i ended my last blog with a quote from Yeezy from the track "Swagga Like Us"...I happen to love Kanye West and see him as a big influence for what i wanna do...In my beat making..hes for sure someone to look up to..his innovation has changed the hip hop game and made everyone have to step up...personally 808's and Hearbreak is my favorite record of 2008...it may not be hip hop to some hip hop purists but i think its what hip hop is all about..breaking boundaries and laying the groundwork for something new and different...I try to read every article Kanye has been in and recently in the new Vibe issue...he was his usual self with crazy quotes about how he "is hip hop" and that he inspires himself...i gotta say it inspired me to step up and live my life the way i want..no matter if people like it or not...as cocky as he can sound..he knows how to get peoples attentions..and he keeps hip hop alive...his biggest critcs are of course completely against the ever so used auto-tune...yes it is over used in hip hop but it does have its place...and i enjoyed 808's auto tune or not...its not a make or break...thank T-Pain for bringing back a style that is the most copped style in the game right now and has brought the likes of Ron Browz and others...Hip Hop is always gunna evolve and this is the state of the game right now...take it or leave it...kanye or kanye...but ill stand by it...HIP HOP AINT DEAD!!

Who the hell is Duug Fresh and why can he not write sentences appropriately?

Please, friend, do not put a list in paragraph form.

...I'm not too sure what he's trying to say with this.

But more importantly, I'm not sure how Kanye's ability to get people's attention has anything at all to do with his use of auto-tune or "keeping hip-gop alive." I might be in the minority here, but I really don't understand the Kanye hype. What is so groundbreaking about his work? It's been years and I still feel like I'm missing something.

sorry bro but there's a lot better hip-hop out there than what you're ranting about:

take note...

Big L - The Big Picture
Gangstarr - Moment of Truth
Gangstarr - Full Clip (Only for the actual Full Clip track.. find a better hook in Kanye's shit. I would love to debate this)
Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt
Rakim - The 18th Letter
Slick Rick - The Great Adventures of Slick Rick (Mr. "Duug Fresh" - you should already be on this)
De La Soul - Stakes Is High (enough said)
Big Daddy Kane - Daddy's Home (Show & Prove.. best collabo out there)

if you're going to have a hip-hop blog, cover some of this.

Ron Browz did that song with Forever the Sickest Kids so no, I am not thanking T-Pain and autotune for bringing him to us.

sorry, dude, but if you think 808's and heartbreak was the best hip hop record of 2008 you're fuckin deaf.

expand your horizon: KiD CuDi - A kid named cuDi or Wale's Mixtape about Nothing...both blow kanye's 'art' out of the water. sorry, man, you suck and you don't know how to write.
