Come on now DC let's get it together people!!! Bamma shit like dis is what's holding da DMV back, not da lack of talent. Dat's an old myth da stems from the late 80's 2 early 90's when DC residents were so stuck on GoGo we used 2 throw Hip-Hop tapes out da window & direspectfully boo people like Biggie, Foxy Brown, & JD off da stage until Chuck, R.E., Back, Junk, EU, or Groovers started 2 crank!!! We're used 2 dis type of shit happening at da GoGo but not at Hip-Hop clubs. Can't we all just get along...lol!!!
