Some words from Mr. Tork:
For those that don’t know, the original purpose of Metro Rap Radio and the mixtapes was to prove a point that needed to be made (back in 2006-7): There are more than 2 talented rappers in the DC area.
Now I’m not saying the area has ACCEPTED or SUPPORTS area rappers, that day may never come. But now a lot fewer people are saying that they don’t EXIST. This point has been proven beyond reasonable doubt to the ones that doubted. If a person says they don’t LIKE area rappers, I can live with that. If in 2009 you STILL say there are only 2, you’re a hopeless idiot and a lost cause.
I’ve honestly been feeling this way since after Vol 2 (what most CONTINUE to tell me is the best one in the series). Volumes 3, 4, and now 5 have just been added nails in the coffin, basically victory laps.
While I’m going to keep it up with mixtapes, the “Metro Rap Radio” series has run its course.
