Alright, I'll give Gutter Rainbow another shot. I can honestly say I kind of disregarded it the first time around.

It's about time I check out Heist, too...

I reckon if rap music was video games conscience rap would be like a strategy game like Romance Of The 3 Kingdoms or a puzzle game, maybe a RPG.

Gangsta / Swag rap would be a mindless Shoot Em Up like GTA, or Call Of Duty or better yet those wack-ass 50 cent games. Or something like Midnight Club, no, the street car racing games will represent the defuct Miami bass or DUB

Battle Rap would be a fighting game liken to Mortal Kombat

That super scientific back pack rap would like Metriod, or one of those comic book games

Platformers like Sonic The Hedge Hog would like that super soft rap of Charles Hamilton or Kendrick Lamar

Lol, those comparisons are pretty on point Trotter. Have you heard Hamilton's stuff or was that comparison to Sonic coincidental?

I always forget about those Jeru albums. I probably would've picked Water For Chocolate as a Common album, but thinking about it FF is more likely a better choice for crossing over due to the more party music vibe. Which I'm sure is why it actually did cross over.
