                      Man, when I think of this era, and how we hype certain artists (I’m victim to this, too), then compare those same artists to A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Biggie Smalls, Tupac, The Roots, Common, Jay-Z, Nas, OutKast, UGK, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Redman, Raekwon, AZ, Big L, Big Pun, GZA, Slum Village, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes, Fugees, Rakim & Eric B, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, DJ Quick, etc., it really makes you realize our era ain’t shit. And the people we hype up are nice, but they ain’t that nice. Just facts. Sad

                            Y'all need a nigga from the South on here. Snoop on No Limit was big to us. The South was finally getting respect. N Master P put him on game. Like Shug couldn't touch him. C'mon bro. Y'all need a Southern nigga.

The albums weren't classic though they had some nice cuts, Master P showed Snoop how to be more independent and have his own.
