Wow, this topic is no a two pager all thanks to rice,imports and Nelly.
Some rapper named KRS-One dissed Nelly saying something that he makes music for little kids.
Rap is the biggest money making scheme ever. White suburban kids listen to it, inner-cirty black kids cant even afford to buy a new Nelly cd. Rap music makes the white suburban kids think their all tough because Nelly says so.
You know what you call someone who makes a song with just a two beat drum and chime going through it for 3:46 minutes? FUCKING BRAIN DEAD. They have no chord changes, no solos and the lyrics are pure machoism shit. Hey, if they got a Pink Floyd-ish type rap group then that would be cool, but they wouldnt sell shit.
Back in the day when Dre and SNoop were first out, it was neat for its novelty. Now it's just plain fucking old and beaten down. And no one can say I never listen to rap, because I have a few rap cds. (anyone want a free redman cd?)
So in the end of my rant, I respect Bustah Ryhems because he doesn't take the whole rap biz seriously, N.E.R.D(THe Neptunes) because they make phat beats, Old skool stuff like Run DMC and Grandmaster Flash.
And don't get me started on todays new "metal" bands which are a fucking joke.
