Raising Rich B4 Rap

The debate over who was the philosopher's stone and who were the lead weights during the recording of Rich B4 Rap continues with this comment which may or may not have been posted by JNeal himself since he later linked my post on Twitter:



Damn, this whole kerfuffle is like a Rap game equivalent of the great Citizen Kane authorship wars of the 1970s with ZMoney as Orson Welles, Bandman Kevo as Herman Mankiewicz, JNeal as Gregg Toland, and me as Pauline Kael. For anyone else willing to see this analogy through to its inevitable conclusion, that means Gucci Mane and OJ Da Juiceman are William Randolph Hearst and Samuel Insull but we're currently lacking an Andrew Sarris.

This is just sad when the 3 of them had such good chemistry on that mixtape.

Innit.

Why can't they all be friends and make music together again?

But if you look closely at some of their tweets, it looks like (ZMoney in particular) are trying to refute the whole idea that they are beefing, or that one person or another deserves more credit. I say give credit where it's due; there's no mystery here. If JNeal had a good beat, it's JNeal's beat. If Kevo had some swag bars, then props to Kevo. Obviously ZMoney gets the Miles Davis credit for bringing all the key players together. And obvy some of the Wayne Shorter led joints were never as strong as his playing was with Miles. Same thing applicable here. I dunno, maybe I have a point or maybe I'm just being a douchey "why cant we just get along" (black) hippy?

Even JNeal & ZMoney's haters are foreign.
