As 2013 gets choked by artificial flavor hiphop and bashed in the head with a PS4. 2014 does promise alot less music from stapled older dudes babbling about their delusional success with their delusional marriage and delusional spouse attached with that rebelled artist that came on their Hampton spouses blouse. The year coming promise the youth the younger generation and alot of them will under sell and be ignored.
Hip Hop will be backed but will get stomped and strangled by some summer movie blockbuster. Hip Hop will lose it's sting among the banter of the youth anti-penniless. Hip Hop will become more discussed as its youth smooth over into thirty something. The animal of it's elite has spawned as it's hatchlings will sprawl. You have some album releases being recorded and may taste the autumn of 2014. You will see alot more head swiveling as the youth shall rebel with the music of rebellion. Hip Hop shall become the music climate within internal warfare compared to Afghanistan in 2014.

My Rhyme style didn't evolve from rap but graffiti. I developed my graffiti first I didn't develop my freestyle skills till later hanging around "KIDS". It wasn't even anything serious it was a dozen style rebuttal  towards these pesky street rappers that would see us chilling and had no angle to literally talk to us so they would abruptly bark at us "You wanna BATTLE!!". This would happen so many times that it begin to be a pain in the ass. We didn't know a few of us that we chilled with became professional EMCEES. At the time,the process was to go around and battle rap. So after these excursions of rhyme quarrels Emcees would look for a next bout or they would send them to Washington Square Park (NYC), since alot of Rhyme Cipher Battles would take place there. This is were the evolution of the rhyme cipher was given birth as I know it. Of course it came from somewhere else but as far as I know it and few of the Emcees are still prominent in the recording industry after signing that recording contract. If it happen some where else I wouldn't know. I like Hip Hop but I didn't care for being an Emcee till Kid Hood was killed. He was this kid that had this ill rhyme style and recorded with A Tribe Called Quest Song on The Low End Theory "The Scenario" remix. We was chilling with dude like days before at Washington Square Park we would call the "Da Square". I remember when we didn't see him and didn't really pay it no mind because so many of us would be at the square and would disappear, hell i've done too many times. So it was a no biggie that Kidd Hood was doing something else but he lived in a shelter for men and was homeless at the time. Later he was killed as soon as the song "Scenario"  released on 12 inch right in front of the homeless shelter he stayed at. I read it in some Hip Hop newspaper that was in New York City we would get free near party card flyers. I bought the A Tribe Called Quest single and grabbed one of the news papers that wrote a article about Kidd Hood being killed and i heard it later on the Hip Hop segment of NYU radio that played the Scenario (remix).
What came with the remix was the instrumental and i started writing rhymes in structure to the instrumental and decided i was gonna spit bars in spirit of Kidd Hood whom had a totally different style and became a legend in the Hip Hop game till this day. So I started taking rhyming seriously since 1992.
I developed my own style off of battle diss rap off the dome freestyling. And seriously started writing rhymes since 1992.

The confusion of the origin of Hip Hop vocal styles.

Since the beginning i've been rapping over instrumentals vocal styles where very basic. When you go to record in a professional recording studio you are up against recording industry rules when it comes to vocal styling. Later in Hip Hop as it expands to the southern regions the vocal styles were similar to R&B standards while up in NYC the vocal styles change to what was popular at the time. Still you can record vocals in other studios you wanted the optimum sound and engineers would add vocal effects. Still as long as i've been recording the vocals were very basic. Now Down South Hip Hop artist are claiming to have created the very basic vocal style and NYC Hip Hop artist followed their lead. Artist like Fat Joe Redman Epmd and Das Efx always have the raw vocal sounds and i guess certain down south artist now want to claim NYC are following their lead when making Hip Hop music. I can see claiming it and being excited that certain artist may follow a trend but ever since the early nineties
songs where constructed. I'm not gonna front when i heard the artist BG i was excited about how stripped down his vocals were and it just showed that the industry changed being he was once a top selling artist under Cash Money Records. Still it's pretty naive to believe you came with a style if you followed the inspirations of RUN DMC and etc. I just wanted to address this because it can be misconstrued that a certain down south artist created the raw vocal style because the major labels were against it because of recording industry laws. Only if you do your homework this raw style can be found on many NYC Hip Hop albums.
