This is TALIBAN!!!!!!!!!
Betweeen gangsta, Taliban and rasta.

I don't believe that it's much gangsta either and frankly I don't care.
But there's something that puzzles me since like forever since I'm only casual rap listener.

The contribution those artists made to modern music can not be overstated. Everything that is big on the charts today springs from them, their contemporaries and most especially their influences (I'm looking at you, Kraftwerk and Lee Scratch Perry).

... but she NEVER wants to see Lee Scratch Perry or Korn again!
Off topic again, tee-hee :-)
