    In a way I agree, and I think I would agree 100% if I didn't go to school in Florida and talk to hundreds of people who aren't from the west just to see what they feel.

    Yeah I would say Game is the main reason Bishop and Glasses got those major deals...but for the last 5 or so years, the problem for west coast artists wasn't really the part about being signed....it had everything to do with them actually coming out. I don't know if you remember, but when Dre got Game, a lot of us really didn't care, because we "KNEW" he would be shelved and never come out, just like every other West Coast artist at the time. So the fact that he did come out and sell did bring attention, and will probably make other companies give these artists a chance...but west coast artists have always been signed, they just never dropped or got good promotion if they did drop.

    As for what I said about being in school out of state....I never realized so many people looked down on the west and their new artists. With Game, most people on the east liked him because he sounded like their own artists...but this did not make most of them want to seek new west coast talent or have an open ear to other artists on the west....instead, many of them would just say "well the ONLY y'all got is Game, and he's only dope because he sounds like he's from the east. Everybody else on the west is wack"....so many of their ears weren't really opened up to the west...but just to Game.

    So yeah, it may seem as if their are opportunities for everyone to blow...but personally, shit has been moving TOOOOOOOOOO slow. I was here in December at the "New west concert" at the Vault 350 in LBC, and G. Malone's signing party on Dec. 19 I think...and it really looked like the west was ready to go right then, and all of the new west artists were united. But damn...I haven't heard but so much to happen since then. Bishop and Glasses drop next year...well Glasses at least, and hopefully they will make enough noise to keep it movin. But droppin a new artist from the west 2 years after Game scheduled to bring it back is way too much time for me.

    i feel you though but me personally im like i haven't found a perfect rapper you know it's just sometimes i wanna hear flow, sometimes the beat, sometimes the content depending on my mood and the combination of those together is what makes someone really dope to me... i've yet to be super impressed by any rapper in history really i mean as far as overall there's always a downside to everyone ya know... it's good i love west coast music and will continue to do so and support it..............

    oh and P.S. Yuk's got lyrics mayne you sleepin

    What are you sayin? U sayin the west ain't "dead" because they are still makin em? If so....we still have no mainstream presense.

    Xzibit - Last album flopped hard, and is only around because of Pimp my ride. After he left Dre, many people lost interest

    Snoop - Still around...some people say he lost it, and some say he's wack, but he still makes some hits when he drops

    DPG - Still around, but not nearly as dope and refreshing as they were in 96...nowhere close. They get a bit of play outside the west, but never anything major

    MC Eiht - Drops 6 CDs a year that nobody knows anything about other than die hard fans

    Game - I donno the truth, but everybody is sayin Aftermath really did drop him, and his album is not coming anytime soon. In L.A., lost about 98% of his "street cred" for those who feel it matters, even though he did go back to his hood a while ago...he still isn't down with the whole camp though.

    DJ Quik - Album was pretty good but didn't make any noise outside the west, and rumor has it that he's in jail right now for somethin that happened in 03, probably dealin with his sister. Still the most talented producer on the west, but he doesn't do as much as he used to, and is still unheard by much of the younger crowd.

    Too Short - Has a dope azz single out, but I don't see the video on TV (maybe its on MTV2, I donno). Should be gettin play everywhere because it's easily acceptable. But dude is gettin OOLD.....has many gray hairs on his face, even though he's still as dope (or wack if you think so) as he was in the 90's.

    Soo.....yeah our legends are still here, but aside from a few others, that's about it. No kind of Chamillionaires, Paul Walls, T.I.s, Jeezys, Pitbulls, or anyone else to come out in the last few years other than Game.

    yea...i do feel u on it takin way too long for the next true west reppin artist to blow...but i'd say thats mainly cuz the south is still so strong right now...but i can just about garuntee the west is gonna be "mainstream" again within the next year or so...

    i just hope the ones bringin real quality and truley deserve it,are the ones to do it this time.

    got damn i didnt read all this 5 page shit i dont got enough time right now

    so ima jus drop my dead honest opinion...yall can like it or not i gives a fuck....anyway to me the west is dead cause the music comin out is WAACK...it might not be to yall but it doesnt apeal to us outside cali.......half the shit isnt even nothin new...some niggas still on that g funk shit(lmfaooo let it goo).....n the others thats tryn somethin diff like the bay is corny...hyphy is trash lol im sorry that whole movement is a joke everyone here laughs at it....and if its not that yall still have them same 40 yr old rappers....Ice cube snoop DPG dj quik mc eiht etc.....lmfao nigga please no nigga over here is tryna hear no fuckin ice cube in 2006.........cmon dawg

    but basically yall music jus dont appeal to niggas no more.....nobody here tryna hear it and its not sayin yall should adjust to our styles yall should jus find somethin yaselfs(and fyi a special ed version of crunk is not the way to go)

    anyway thats my opinion dont like suck a dick im prolly not gonna remembe 2 check this so i prolly wont reply to nobody..1.

    I am sure people in Miami are on it as well.

    As you can see though...many people outside the west feel like this. I can't get mad about it, and I'm used to it now...I'm tired of sayin "listen to [insert rapper] I bet you'll like them" because most people with that attitude still won't like em period. But yeah...the effect of Game comin out definitely didn't change people's opinions at that level.

    but it dont even matter...cuz if u sayin u dont kno nobody thats buyin them artist music...as much as they sellin...then that just shows how irrelevant and insignifiacant your lil part of town is...yall must be a non factor...

    or u really dont kno wut u typin about...so either way..u just erased any reasons to even read any more of your post.
