EDITORIAL: Some Thoughts On “The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Are Vet MC’s Trying Too Hard?”
October 16, 2012 in Editorial
In the premier episode of EW’s new video for the Life & Times, Elliott Wilson asks the tough question of are veteran MC’s trying too hard with their recent singles. Sadly this is the first time I even heard of Uncle L’s “Ratchet” or maybe that’s not sadly since it sucks. Eve’s joint is okayish even though it’s wearing the Nicki influence on it’s sleeve or is that vice versa? Which brings us to Fat Joe’s “Instagram That H*e” which is probably causing the shareholders of Instagram to cringe in horror. Well maybe they would if it wasn’t an ass backwards song, but that’s beside the point. My only issue with this video is yes these songs are terrible, but what is the difference in quality between them and some of the garbage by current hot artists on a blog like RapRadar or this under appreciated one? “Instagram” is basically a Ross song without Ross on it and Officer Ricky gets unlimited burn over at the house that Light Skin built. If we are going to start calling out “vets” for trying too hard maybe we should call out any artist for making trash music.
