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.
