For some time now, there has been an elephant in the room, for lack of a better term, regarding a few Hip-Hop elder statesmens’ latest releases. Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson cited three that met his disapproval in the inaugural episode of his new web series The Truth, with Life+Times. On this episode YN discusses LL Cool J’s “Ratchet”, Fat Joe’s “Instagram That Hoe”, and Eve’s “She Bad Bad”, posing the question “Are veteran MCs trying too hard?”


According to Wilson, these older MCs should embrace their longevity and communicate that in their music, rather than forcefully creating music with hopes of relating to the youth. Makes enough sense, right? Check out the full video below to hear Elliott Wilson’s rationale.
