Look at Nas. He's mainstream but good.
Very true. But look at Nas' whole career, when was it the strongest? Do you see a trend with rap artists, that when they start out (ie rookie albums, earlier cds) they are spittin fire, and generally start to fall off? Maybe become more commercialized? Maybe run out of sh*t to say?

The industry usually changes a rappers focus and style. But, if it weren't for this and underground became commercial...the sh*t would be fire and rap music would "survive."

**As a side note tho, Im hella excited for his new album under Def Jam, I hear jigga is makin an appearence on it..
