hip hop pose-down

i gave up on hip hop shows a long time ago… almost every show i’ve been to has been the same… i decided to give hip hop another chance… i went to a show a couple weeks ago… it was not as much of a let down because of the two main acts, but the opening acts were an abomination of the culture…

i have gone off on hip hop before, but these opening acts made it hard to not hate… of course anyone can grab and microphone and flow… there are many words that rhyme with each other… that’s not the point.

your voice, style, and purpose needs to have some originality and consistency… your lyric need to be about something other than money, bitches, and bling… no one knows you… no one cares… it’s up to you to make them care…

tribe called quest said it best back in the day, “phony rappers”… i never fully understood who they were talking about… and Del said “fake as fuck”… i get it now, doods… i saw a bunch if these posers and it was beyond infuriating…

i miss you, hip hop… maybe see you again soon…

peace and noLove…
