The first time I ever heard Tupac was his verse on “I Get Around” with Digital Underground. I was 18 or 19 years old and I remember thinking, “Who is this?” He stood out so much. Once I heard that, I got his first album, 2Pacalypse Now. I saw the video for “Brenda’s Got a Baby” and I remember thinking, “Holy shit.” By the time he got to Me Against the World, it was him at his pinnacle. He’s off and running. He knows what he wants, and he’s figured out how he wants to be and how he wants to sound — everything. I would probably put that up against anything as far as a classic hip-hop album goes.

The truth #chopsquadrecords

A video posted by KING CHOP (@youngchopbeatz) on

So Young Chop feels some big artists use new artists with a buzz. For example remix their songs and work with them but then later on no longer communicate with them. I think this is part of the game. Major artists sometimes ride the wave of new artists to stay relevant. They are not looking for friends, it is a business move. Those new artists need to capitalize off of the exposure and not expect much from the major artists. What do you think?
