are Black rappers here even aware that nobody is really checking on them anymore?
seems like when you think of Seattle Hip-Hop the first image that pops into your head is a White one.
the first FEW images that pop into your head are White ones.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Hip-Hop USED TO BE “the voice of the voiceless“
Hip-Hop is the voice of White privilege and NOVELTY.
the most PREFERABLE FORM of Hip-Hop has a White image, and White frequency – in other words, White APPEAL.
I said it before and i’ll say it again, WHITE ARTISTS DON’T NEED BLACK FANS.
“the top echelon of the New School“
“we are now in a full age of URBAN MUSIC enlightenment and Sam Lachow is the leadership on that“
those are the words that are being used to describe local WhiteRap.
and what is it based on?
NUMBERS (YouTube views, show attendance, etc)…not SKILL or even SUBSTANCE.
and to classify WHITERAP as URBAN MUSIC is insulting, to say the LEAST.
it’s kinda funny to me how certain Black rappers only talk about “niggas” this and “niggas” that and how niggas can’t fukc with them or don’t want it with them or how niggas can’t see them or how they’ll take niggas girls’ yadayadayada…
but you wanna know what the FUNNY thing is?
those same rappers will NEVER go at any WHITE RAPPER.
ESPECIALLY a White rapper that is SUCCESSFUL.
they’ll take shots at “niggas” ALL DAY – - – but when it comes to White rappers that are HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL???
they don’t say SHIT.
some of these cats are good little negroes…they stay in their place and don’t DARE pop a shot at MASSA on wax.
and like i said…i don’t need to even say names…just listen to some of these local guys and you’ll hear for yourself EXACTLY what i’m talking about.
it was NEVER about “ENTERTAINMENT” is the first god-damn place.
people got shit SO twisted these days…and that’s what’s so fukced up.
motherfukcer’s just make their own rules without even consulting the PRE-ESTABLISHED GUIDELINES.
that’s why every damn POINT and CONCLUSION that cats make these days are EMOTION-BASED as opposed to LOGIC-BASED.
everybody puts a political “SPIN” on their standpoints…all but COMPLETELY disregarding TRUTH in their spiels.
“This generation is just one big game of simon says and the few people who refuse to not play are looked at as the crazy ones or the haters. Todays rap fans are some of the most misguided, ignorant, and confused people i’v met.”
the original tenets that Hip-Hop was founded on are now FORSAKEN by the same people that claim that THEY are Hip-Hop.
these days we are surrounded my a myriad of S.S.S. – - – SHAPE-SHIFTING SHEEPLE.
beware – these people will rob you of your ORIGINALITY – ESSENCE – and LIFE FORCE – … and they’ll reduce you to the LOWEST-COMMON DENOMINATOR OF AN INDIVIDUAL…just like they are.
Hip-Hop of TODAY is all about POLITICS – RACE - and TWO-DIMENSIONAL / SIMPLISTIC THINKING- – - and not necessarily in that order.
