this has always been my favorite poem, If you know who it is by, I will be thuroughly impressed. I myself am not a fan of Hip Hop, but this poem does embody how I feel about the hip hop culture.
hey yo, why is it so uncool to smile, since when did it become hip-hops taboo?
cuz I would be smiling all the time if I made even half of the money you do.
Frownin like you just caught a face full of sun
how I miss the days when hip hop was fun
when Dj quik first burst on the scene
when boys in tha hood was on the big screen
when tupac shakur was a dancer for humpde
when nasty naz five miked at the monthly
When MC breed painted the white house black,
when too short retired and then came back
When wyclef jean asked out mona lisa,
that's the era this poem will feature.
I wanna go to a show and not have to front
I'll fisticuff but I'd rather you pass the blunt,
let's chill and enjoy the diversity,
get lost in the rhythms uncertainty
it doesn't make you less hardcore to shake your ass on the fuckin dance floor
but somewhere along this road we made rules
and smilin became the weakness of a fool
and silence and anger became the norm
and that's when the party began to lose form
I reminisce about the glory that's gone
when happiness was not looked down upon
when epmd crossed over with the cross over
when tim hardaway still had his cross over
I used to go to the store and buy classics
now I go to the store and shit's plastic
I can't call it, I'm feeling for skill
you call it dope but I don't see you real
all I see is suckers pretending to ill
snappin photographs with a barbaque grill
I can't relate to this lack of humanity
musics as vulnerable as insanity
I was a side kick, when gangsta was still on the rise kid
When dela soul was reincarnated
When freestyle fellowship first circulated
Whne Run DMC wore adidas sneakers
that's the era this poem will feature
from 86 to 95 when hip hop was just to thick to describe
I strive to become it in every way
so I practice religously every day
On the bus ride home folks though i was schitzo
in 8th grade I wore more raon then sisqo
Housin was in
Mr.Balbarina could cuaght a misdemeanor if he faked on his friends.
We would until we were bored
no cash or Grammy award
my boys club trophies littered the shelf
we no other reason then reason itself
So why is it so uncool to smile,
since when did it become hip hops taboo?
Cuz I would be smilin all the time if I made even half of the money you do.
Frownin like you just caught a faceful of sun, How I miss the days when hip hop was fun
How I miss the days when hip hop was fun
How I miss the days when hip hop was one.
yep, if you know who it is by, then good for you. I miss the days when hip hop was fun. Have a nice day.
Oh yeah, Had sex three times yesterday, it was great!
