About eminem, its pretty well known I hate him. For a few reasons
- He is a poser, of what? Everything! He steals ideas from another subtype of rap called Horror Core or Wicked .
If you don’t belive me
check these two songs
3 a.a. by Em, talks about killing people in his sleep off his new cd
em’s is a better quality because he can afforf to do all the effects to enhance his product, Psychopathic does theres in their city DETROIT SW
Violent J, SleepWalker, came out 10 years ago…basically the same song
no way to deny that rip off,He was a total I mean eminem has made so many references to wickedness but then he’ll do some pop shit like crack a bottle or without me. If he stuck with HorroCore he’d be good. If he stuck with pop he’d be good. The point of this? If he would let Horror go then good rapperss of that type good get their shine, like Jamie Madrox, who I think is better than Slim…both spittin sickness and in a more relaxed style.
I’ve just realized this, here is a market for real honest rap. Then there is a market for this trash that gets on the radio. The sad thing is, you cannot feel anything from these dudes talkin about there cars and shit. they just lack soul.Sad thing is because of this pop trash there will never be another Jay-Z or Nas. With the current trend it doesnt look good for rap’s future in mainstream.
I like to compare this era of rap to those glam rock bands of the 80’s, ya know where there were some sick ass bands around then came these “look at my hair” types and ruined it for eveyone.
ther is nothing that can be done about it though, the market has been set up for pop rash and that is what will continue to sell…people are afraid of real hip-hop. They don’t want street,the want this illusion of hip hop. lil wayne(pop) vs juvenile(actual street) is a good example.
maybe we need rap to die to weed out these dudes that see rap as ameal ticket rather than being passionate about the craft. I really doubt any of these new schoolers could make a cd where they did’nt mention 1 car or their bank account once…Truthfully, that is not hip hop to me. why? The real thug does not have any of that shit!
and now that I think about it, these dudes might be broke too. I mean, with all the tour costs and that kinda stuff the record company pays for, right? Its all a sick game and ppeople buy into it.
END RAMBLE lol…I’m about to get flamd like crazy tonight!
horror core rap?? wicked rap?? interesting. Fits in with a discussion about the state of hip hop.[/quote]
it does, when you consider most “legendary” rappers have identified with horrocore or have worked with wickedness…when you consider the lyrics of hardcore rappers compared t horrorcore rap
both are real, what nobody wants to hear…actual emotion of any kind is left out of this current phase of hip hop. Hooror/Wicked is raw in that it opens up all the emotion one feels in the struggle of life. Ya kno, that “I wanna blow your head off” after working at some lame ass job for a small check? that is where horror/wicked/hadcore rappers live.
