Thats the best post you have ever made. The truth siren just went off.

Why is it marginally talented barely famous rappers have to talk about ****ing girls and money? They should all listen to the Wu and Pac so that they knew what a real song should be about.

Drake thinks he is hot ****, but whens the last time a respectable rapper did a song with him.

Me too, I'd be way more impressed if he switched it up.

hahaha THIS is the best post I've ever made?!?!?!
I think, and I've talked about this with friends before, that once a rapper gets rich and famous, they stop talking about what got them there. They talk about what they do with that money. I don't like that.

I don't like "I got money in these jeans, so they fit me kind of snug." **** off man, how am I supposed to relate to that? my pants will never be snug because of how much money I have.

I think that's why Pac is still so relevant today. So many of his songs were about real situations that real people go through. They were depressing, but they were real.

Yeah, well I mean in his new album, he kind of does switch it up. He has the song about his mom and the song about heartbreaks. I mean not all songs about girls are bad. Just the ones where he's all like "Do it like the women from my town would." Nasty ass.

I like this post a lot, because it really confirms a lot of my issues with rappers these days. If someone raps about, for example, how many minks died to make his gloves, we as ordinary people don't relate to it at all.
At this point is no longer becomes "poetry of the street" and down to earth, it becomes essentially rich people telling the poor how awesome they are and it's awful. People lose interest because it's depressing.

Yeah poverty is still and will always be relevant. Murders, life, will always be relevant.
I will probably never understand what it's like to have an expensive ass car or all of this money. Like Nicki even does it. Talking about all the albums she made and how much better she is.

I think that's a huge problem with rap, and people say it all of the time, but it hasn't really gotten better.

I think to really rap is to be a poet, and to be a poet is to understand the world around you. Not just talk about yourself.

That's it - nailed.
It's really human nature when you've been successful to in some way feel complacent about it, but the really good rappers will understand that apart from them, the world is still poor and the things they take for granted most people would give an arm for.

Exactly. Exactly what I mean.

Also, I didn't mean to generalize. Not all rappers today lose sight of what they started with.

Out of interest, did anyone actually listen to Take Care?

Drake's always struck me as an overhyped cretin and everything I'd heard of his had sucked, but I noticed he dropped a pretty good verse on the track Poetic Justice off of Good Kid Mad City.
After this, I took the time to listen to the title track off of Take Care.

It's actually a really good pop song. Now, this guy still sucks as a rapper, but as a pop artist I think I could get behind him.

Make your own minds up.

Can't stand him.

I think what makes me hate him even more are his fans, especially Twitter users who post his "quotes" as if he's some philosophical genius. He's a bell-end who appeals to other bell-ends (not me.)

What does it say about you if you'll say "yolo" just because some pop star said it? He's such a knobhead.
