I'm 30 so the folks I know who were influenced by them dudes mostly grew up and out of it, or died or locked up. I don't be around young cats like that. but it's a cycle of events when you really look at it.No, wayne wasnt the FIRST n**** to ever get face tats, sip lean, pop pills and get dreads but it’s absolutely laughable to NOT credit him with the way its become a staple in the culture for the younger generation.
how many pimp c’s, sigels, big moes, and 3-6 influenced young dudes yall been seein? Bc i aint seen notta one.
They aren’t perfect people. They too, are part of “the problem” if you want to call it that. But while recognizing what they contributed is harmful.....addiction, sex, drugs, rock and roll and debauchery is a cultural issue that didn’t just start in 2010 with them rapping, or popularizing lean and other drugs in music.Dudes are cool with giving credit to Lil Wayne and Future for the **** like the sound of music, but when it comes to the ills they've popularized dudes get defensive.
Well, Bobby Brown was using drugs too. George Clinton was using drugs.
Dudes can't have real conversations.
And we'll be having the same conversation again in a couple of months.

the people being named now are just the hot folks being imitated.
it's generational like everything else in rap/hip hop. it's become worse because kids worship these dudes. our kids celebrate things that destroy them whether it be gangsta/drill rap, drug consumption/sales, or letting your ego rule you.
it always ends up "well these guys etc etc etc". nah man. all this **** been ****ed up for years.
Hell nahI would argue that Cocaine is prob a safer drug to use recreationally than the laced pills that these young rappers are using.
Exactly! But this is a hard concept for many to understand .“but it's a cycle of events when you really look at it.”
“it always ends up "well these guys etc etc etc". nah man. all this **** been ****ed up for years.”
All that needs to be said. Anybody blaming one specific person is showing their true stance on the subject
All the people they were selling dope to had kids and now them kids addicts making music about drinking cough syrupBeing an addict In hip hop was looked down on though at one point. Dudes would rather be dealers than addicts. The golden era of hip hop artists weren’t talking about popping pills,
Don’t matter how you wanna twist it, the same ****** who wanna blame Wayne has to blame those who rapped about it before him. Wayne didn’t just pick up syrup and pills by himselfBeing an addict In hip hop was looked down on though at one point. Dudes would rather be dealers than addicts. The golden era of hip hop artists weren’t talking about popping pills,
never. All I had to do was look at the fiends or basers in the hood and know that drugs and drinking wasn’t for me. Also, this scene from menace and when Eddie King tried to rejoin the 5 heartbeatsSerious question, how many of you have ever tried a substance based on the influence of someone rapping about it?
Any substance that I tried I feel like has always been more so from the influence of friends than from music. Never have tried lean though, good on that.
Eminem was. But I’m not even going to get into that, he did this then....they did this now bs that this always falls too. But riding the hip hop moral line has always been an incredibly, slippery slope....drenched in hypocrisy. And it always comes from some bs generational gap ****. I hate it.We’re 36 and screw as popular as Wayne?
He reflects that same sort of nihilist attitude on "Me and My Drank," which pays homage to rap's previous syrup casualties: "I sip that Big Moe, I drink that Pimp C / rest in peace Big Moe, rest in peace Pimp C / and **** what they say / Mr. DJ Screw I'ma do this for youWayne influenced more people than them. Wayne was prob influenced by the streets of Nola more than scree and 36. Nola isn’t far from Houston.
