As to fruit...
To embed youtube videos just copy the stuff after the = sign.

But I listened to it at youtube, and it is a pretty good song - though I was kind of hoping you would post something I hadn't heard before because this isn't going to change my mind.

This is the sort of stuff that is why Em is incredible. He just needs a beat and he can go. That's an ability not many have, and most that do can't transfer that ability to make actual records. [though watch those have me missing Proof]. He's been through a ton [losing Proof, being one of the first white rappers coming out, from Detroit, etc] that has added to his music and you get that sense from it that you don't from a lot of other mainstream or alternative hip-hop acts.

That said, I'm not gonna continue the argument. It's pretty obvious I think I'm right and you guys think you're right. We've beat the life out of this thread probably 15 pages ago. So instead of wasting time, I'm gonna start making a bunch of threads with some new/old rappers that hopefully you haven't heard. If you have, maybe it'll get them back in your playlist and remind them of you. Have some actual discussions and expanding knowledges of people. I encourage y'all to do the same on some artists you've been listening to. There's a lot of **** out there for us. Even if it's a MC Chris thread. Get some youtubes and songs up so we can listen and discuss. And inevitably hate...but at least we're hating on new ****. Even the Bane's can participate...if there's something I post I can zshare it or something if you are allowed to d/l it since the youtube situation isn't possible. Just tell me.

BTW Surref...that Tor/Sufjan Stevens album is a beauty. Saw the one song in your favorites, not sure if you've heard the rest but I'm assuming yes. It's legit.

Because Atmosphere isn't a rapper.
Slug is the rapper in atmosphere.

I'm sure you know that, but that would be the reason.

Well since the debating and arguments are over, I'm here to rekindle them.

No but really, I think arguing who the best white rapper is is like arguing who the smartest retard is; it's a conversation not really worth fighting about. As long as a rapper's good, what does it matter what their appearance is?

I'll also admit fault in the area that I've never really listened to Em, so I can't really argue that he's not the best white rapper; I was just throwing in names that I think are possible contenders. It's over, though, so yeah. Fun fighting, everyone.

Hoodie Ninja obviously wasn't the best mc chris song to prove his point, I honestly don't liek that song at all. Tha tdeson't mean all mc chris's material is like expecially not on his most recent album. How about this?

Took my rappin' to Manhattan,
where the motto's do or die,
didn't know a single soul,
and soon it's suicide,
I'm feelin' microscopic down on Madison Ave.,
I could jump from a window,
or in front of a cab,
then, mc chris arrives
said I'll surely survive,
if you feel like you can't function,
start shuckin' the jive,
don't drown in the sound
of your certain demise,
just be a different person if you're hurting inside.

I like Hoodie Ninja, the only point I was trying to prove was he can lay down a track with a story to it. It may not be the best song to prove he can be a rapper with a great subject, though.

I said Never Give Up and Freaks also, for songs with a more meaningful subject. Maybe some people have selective reading?
