As timeless and insightful as we'd like to think our favorite MCs are, there unfortunately comes a point when rhyme schemes that have become apart of pop culture are rendered invalid. Does it hurt that some of Pac's prophetic-sounding bars are now only a reflection of days that once were? And how long could the barrage of basketball references in hip-hop possibly stand the test of time? With that in mind, here's our list of the 15 Most Outdated Rap Lines.
Eminem, "Without Me": (2002)
Line: "You don't know me, you're too old, let go. It's over, nobody listens to techno"
Unfortunately, all the heat Em had for Moby (talk about outdated) only manifested to radio rotations full of 130 BPM+ tracks intended for young'ns and bead-sporting pill poppers to shuffle to. Sorry, Marshall, we call it EDM now...and a lot of people listen to it.
Mack Maine of Young Money, "Every Girl" (2009)
Line:"In about 3 years, holla at me Miley Cyrus"
Somewhere in America, Miley Cyrus is still twerking...legally!
Ludacris, "Rollout (My Business)"(2001)
Line: "PlayStation 2 up in the ride, is that Lorenzo-kitted?"
Now that rappers have started rapping about G6 jets and all, the concept of "rim-rap" is fairly obsolete. No "Cadillacs on 22s" or none of that! Is Lorenzo -the rim company- even in still in biz-nass?! Plus, PlayStation 4 is rumored to be dropping at the end of this year.
