imo, ocee's jewelz was the most disappointing album of '97 ... not a bad album per se, most beats are solid, but it could have been so much better if he took the "word...life" route ... stepping out of the o-zone didn't help him much...

Rolo at the age of nearly 50 years old do you think it's mature to still act like your still in the hood when it's blatantly obvious you are not and never have been. I'm so happy Fahim fucked you over, it's well deserved and I'm sure he isn't the only one, why wouldn't they rip off a tosspot like you, I bet your wifey is nearly 60 and a skank, fuck you and your bitch

LMAO, i liked that.

Rolo,to pick company flow as #1 and not even list forever, from 97 in your top 5, that's a hard statement to throw at people.

I've always thought El-P was overrated and never felt most of his work from Co-Flow, Cannibal Ox, etc.

Change of plans since letting this breathe the rest of the day is a formality at this point, winner gonna be announced tonight instead of tomorrow.

Because you went at the mans credibility asking him if he was even around in 1997.

I know I was and every man in the entire city / magazines / radio was killing that forever album not funcrusher plus.

A little ironic i thought that's all.

I think anyone whou wouldn't put forever in their top 5 list and was old enough/ around for 97 are a little off to me but what can i do about that?

Respect Ci_fus, Rolo clueless when it comes to 90's Hip Hop and gets scammed on the regular


" herbs like you try too hard and will never ever be accepted"

Accepted where? In the hood😂; I love my hip-hop and have since 1992, I don't care for all your fake hood/ hard man bullshit, go away and bother someone else bro, your fucking lame as fuck Rolo
