lets face it. hittin the top must sap some of ya hunger to be the best. Not many artists consistantly make phat records. eminem's latest stuff is whiny shit compared to when he was new and hungry. red hot chilli peppers used to make fast, funky records and are now whinning bitches. Its a pattern that reoccurs with artists. The streets, first album was banging, second ok, third bit whiney.
