Is it too early for nostalgia?

Man… the old school hiphop:

Y’know, for as much as people gripe about rap videos today being nothing but ass-shaking and materialism, that video had more ass in it than I remembered. Thanks to that period of my life, my personal view on the whole video content fuss is that an MCs bling and video-skank count should be proportional to his skills.  Applied to modern artists, this would mean Nas or Andre 3000 could wear so many chains they can’t stand up & have more scantily clad chicks than the entire Hooters franchise, whereas Rich Boy would be in front of the camera by himself, standing by a Pinto with flat tires.

    I like this as a new scale for rating hip-hop artists. Instead of 1-5 mics (e.g. The Source), you could have 1-5…thongs? chains?

    Slick Rick…5 thongs

    Run-DMC … 5 chains

    Black Star … 5 chains

    (I go with thongs for the more sexually charged rappers and chains for the more modest MCs)

    In a way, you could say the standard used to be like that already. I don’t recall any complaints when LL had the huge 3 finger rings…
