Did a rap about Cam Newton

Recommended Posts

I could go all day, just a couple guys that have been around a while like Brother Ali, Slug, Aesop Rock, Apathy, John Conner, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Cunnin Lynguist, Nipsey Hussle, Pharaohe Monch (except he's gotten pretty big).

John Conner, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Nipsey Hussle I'm a huge fan of. Well check into some of those other guys.

If you want true poetry, simply listen to Tchaikovsky or Rachmaninoff or Bach or Beethoven. If you want unearned stylized rhythmic egocentric expression then I suppose rap is for you.

Underground isn't the right term for macklemore lol...just because he wasn't known yet doesn't mean he is underground lol...but you don't get that because you don't listen to anything that isn't mainstream...

You just looked up all of those names, you have no knowledge, respect, or taste for any underground rappers that don't even want to be famous, especially if you think Macklemore is one of those guys.

Do some research, stay away from the mainstream for a while, maybe it will humble you and you'll actually have a newfound understanding of the genre.

Lol I looked up those guys... You've seen me go on and on about how Ea is my favorite rapper, and I could take screenshots of my iTunes showing you how many listens some of the other dude's have.

People actually bag on me for how much underground I listen to, calling me "hipster" and sh*t.

Besides, how would I just be able to look up some of those guys? Like DeLaZoo, Prince Ea, Dymez, etc all have like 5-15k followers on Twitter, Youtube, etc. Obviously nothing you could just randomly stumble across and toss onto a list "pretending" to know what I'm talking about.

True, but my whole point is to let casual music fans know that HIP-HOP RAP is POETRY....just in a stylized manner or delivery over a beat.

Pop rap on the other hand is what you explained, but somehow most people can't seem to grasp that pop rap does not automatically equal hip hop.

I'm tired of seeing hip hop deemed as violent, ignorant and stupid bragging, or as some would say retards attempting poetry. lol

Hip Hop is totally different, yeah it's more for the younger crowd, but its always conscious, thoughtful and POSITIVE to reach out to minds that are asleep.

If anyone needs a more popular reference check out Common.

Everything is subjective. I think Bach, Beethoven and his ilk are trash. BigSyke has spent the entire thread trying to prove to close minded supremacists like yourself that there is a difference between rap and hip hop and not all rap and hip hop is 'egocentric expression' as you put it. If you don't like something fine; I get tired of people going on and on about how 'rap takes no skill and is not art' etc. Art is defined in the eye of the beholder. I think country sucks a giant phallus and it all sounds like a bunch of rednecks whining about how they want to bang their sister. Metal sounds like satan worship to me. Rock has become watered down and irrelevant. Dubstep is my preferred music, but I digress. Art is defined in the eye of the beholder. If you don't like it, gtfo and stop with the superior attitude.

I'm gonna pretend i didn't read that, cause everything else is spot on.
