i wouldn't say dead, as much as in the doldrums

nothing really that interesting has been released in the hip-hop world these past few years

and i'm too lazy going through the underground stuff to separate the wheat from the chaff

95% of white rappers try to do the conscious rap thing and just come off as boring ass wanna-be poets. There are only 3 good white rappers: Aesop Rock, El-P and Edan. They're good cause they're not whiny bitches and they don't try to be all touchy feely. Also, drugs, sex and guns are a damn good thing to rap about, and if you don't rap about these topics at least a little, you're probably a bitch.

I'm not into Necro so I left him out. And I honestly wasn't sure if Ill Bill was white or had some other ethnicities mixed in.

Aphrodisiac.

Would also work with the theme of sexing your music.
