We Would Lose A Rap Olympics



I agree with Chuck D . I don't think we would be in the top 3, perhaps just make the top 5.

I know people are going to start naming the legendary rappers and say I'm bugging, but I would reply with you're bugging. First the masses want the old heads to give it up and fade to black, NOW you want them to represent the art when bragging rights are on the line? NOW you want the lyrical rappers to step up (a la Slaughterhouse). Sorry Charlie, Jay, Nas, Kanye, Jada, Styles and them ain't going. J Cole, Drake, Vado, Nicki, Diggy & CyHi ain't going either. They will get the bug in their ear that this may not be a good look for them. Here's my roster representing the US:

Wiz Khalifa, Currensy, Yo Gotti, Jay Rock, Tyga, Smoke DZA, KRIT, Red Cafe, XV, Pill


These are the new cats, a decent lineup. What will they have to do? Perform the best Hip Hop on the planet. No battle rap, or club lip syncing. Move the world crowd with their Hip Hop. Now of course US rappers headline around the globe, but the US fans have no idea of these countries' local talent. The Asians have been studying US Hip Hop for years. As have the UK, Russia, Australia, and many more countries. Can anyone of you name one of these countries' favorite local rappers to even provide film or scouting? Reassess your thoughts if you don't think a lot of these foreign rappers can't speak English. Notice how much doubt is starting to brew with that starting 10 I put up.

Wiz & Currensy are pretty much the same type of rap. KRIT has his lane, XV has his. The other 6 are pretty much similar. What team has 6 shooting guards, 2 small forwards and 2 point guards and still thinks it can win a b-ball championship?

Who would be the coach? Ross? Snoop? 50? Jay-Z & Puff have already used Euro sounds on their last albums, a sound none of the above rappers have embraced, yet in the same breath people love Tim Duncan's game, and he's sh^t in the international style of basketball. Whomever would be coach would have to get more Mickey Factz' & Kid Cudi's, a rarity in our US rap format, to even be competitive.

We would lose so badly in a Rap Olympics, cats would probably go US Hockey team on the hotel room. And maybe that's what we need to actually see how this rap music thing has truly affected the planet, and step our music artistry up a couple of notches.

If I had Sean "Puffy" Combs money I would have been had this annual event on VH1...

I gotta admit I haven't peeped the overseas talent in a minute. I'm only vaguely aware of the K'naans, MC Solars, etc. and couldn't even participate in the debate of whether or not US emcees are superior.

I wouldn't mind seeing the States get our asses handed to us either! That would be fuckin' great because maybe THEN we'd step it up over here. Our Country still doesn't like it when our pride is hurt.

I'm feeling a loooong international YouTube urge coming on. I'm about to spin the globe, point and click. Good drop $yk!

J7!

Yeah man, we are all guilty of underestimating the worldwide rap talent. you know how people just shun what they don't know.

dope. absolutely fly shit... and oh so true.

just keep Fat Joe off the pummel bars.

and when its time to run ball, niggas can use whatever the fuck that is in Nikki Minaj's ass...

^ * joins the birds & the fish *

you mean whatever the fuck is ON niki minajs ass. anyway the only real competition would be from the french and british. the rest of europe is alright but they do not really release stuff thats to my taste, australia is dead checked it out, africa is still as undeveloped as their infrastructure and asia not so sure I cant seem to understand them. i mean the content is there but the flow you cant really go with. It would be funny if states lost, it would be like losing basketball all over again
