Because those characters are more popular than Ice Cube?  ;)

Seriously, seems like there is a fair amount of hip-hop nostalgia going on. JS could get on that train.

Well, put it this way -- who has been more influential than them? That's a short list.
Love'em or hate'em (for me it's some of both), there's no denying that they changed the game.

John Singleton? NWA? Hell yeah, that's a movie I want to see!  Hip-Hop nostalgia is bigger than y'all are giving it credit for. It's all over Tumblr and you have to be popular and relevant for that. This blogs owner is 16 and he knows almost as much about hip-hop as we do.
