"Instrumental hip-hop should be banned. It's the banal, meandering stepchild of hip-hop. It's a front-runner for the dubious honor of being the world's most snooze-inducing form of music... Where is the joy and excitement in listening to three minutes of plodding drum beats overlaid with a short sample that repeats but goes nowhere? It's music without a start or end, without peaks and momentum -- it's hip-hop without a money shot."

This guy is the epitome of dumbassery.

I wish I could bitch slap him thru the internet but his blog only has a like button.

This is hilarious.

Brings back memories of those articles about the death of JMJ being no surprise as he was a gangsta and rapped about guns.

Wow .. What an idiot. I mean yes there are a lot of wack instrumental albums out there , but for every one , I'm sure there are a hundred wack MCs that a dope instrumental made tolerable . Not to mention the fact that hip hop would be nothing without the instrumental. Just a bunch of fools talking shit over silence. There are a ton of cats out there making I'll beat tapes , and this asshole just pissed all over them . How can you truely appreciate hip hop without the instrumental ? Did I take this whole thing wrong , or am I right about it ?

Douche is stupid.....I fell in love with hip-hop cause of the beats, then rhyming. I don't get it, and sometimes I just spin instrumentals. I have always had an obsession with a good beat. Once I hear one, I will jump through hoops 'til I can snag the song/album/video what ever, then bang that shit all day for a week. I can't remember the last (or first) time I copped something solely based on the words.
