    I thought this was a cool little thing Ari would do but now it’s starting to get cringey….

  2. Ari does these rapper interviews a lot. Ill let you decide his motivation.

  3. No special mentions for Bow Wow?? 🙄😁

  4. Love Nas and Jay Z is a ridiculous lyricist but Biggie and Tupac are still the G.O.A.T. #RIP

    • Nas is easily the goat

      Nas is more lyrical than all of them .

      B.I.G. and Pac are only considered goats cause they died young. Nas raps circles around both of them. Jay… Not sooo much, but he’s definitely the most successful rapper ever.

      @Maximum FRESH They can’t be considered the goats , they don’t have that much body of work considered to Nas. 2pac is he only rapper who had influenced the world but even Nas inspired him.

    Jay z is one of the worst rappers I’ve ever heard. But what do I know ? I only have 2 music degrees….

    I don’t know why he entertains these misogynistic men. Rap has done nothing but further the demise of the black community.

  7. Jayz and nas bro stop playing your self you know its biggie and pac

  8. The dog DMX. That’s very accurate. Love X

  9. 2Pac, Eminem, Nas, B.I.G. = The real GOAT’s

    I forgot about da brat. She became platinum without taking her clothes off. And the way she dressed fits the current trend of not having a gender – she co-opted the men’s style and made it her own.

    Gangsta RAP was a CIA invention to erode the inner city and build the drug cartels to create more Black Budget funding *Thanx MTV*

    biggie is the greatest rapper of all time hands down full stop.

    This little N don’t know $hit about Rap. As a. Man I hated what he said the other day about female rappers. Let him answer for that. I would have scrapped this interview Arie.

  14. Socialism = government for the society
    Capitalism = government for the money. Which one will take care of you and your family? Blessings, Love is the answer

  15. I am totally triggered that msnbc would give the musical genre of rap a platform. Glorifying drugs, crime, and the degradation of women is unacceptable. Where’s my safe space? And someone bring me a coloring book pronto!

    Jermaine Dupri’s recent comments about female rappers diminish his credibility as the “rap historian” he is toting himself to be.

  17. *MSNBC = More Sh!t Nothing But Crap*

  18. Another hustler that became successful by using the people around them. More of the same.

  19. This Country needs ” Schoolhouse Rap”

  20. 😴😴😴😴😴. . .
