the point is its subjective to the person doing it. But in all reality, there's more writers that came up bumpin hip hop then there are writers who where bumpin fishbone. Lets be real. Again, it only seems like the ones who listen to fishbone are the ones crying out loud "we aint hip hop". Its like, "SO WHAT" stop complaining. What bothers me is when a writer I watch come up over the years and get good at their craft all the sudden start thinking his personal opinions matter, they don't. No more then anyones personal opinions when your lookin at a piece.
I wanna look at a guys piece and if I feel it, be all about the piece and the work involved, not be thrown off by his attached footnote opinions. shits just silly. The same thing if it said " I love metalica!!!" or "vote republican!" or "Bush is great!", it's like "so what".
