I think people do check out the recommended artists, it's just not usually the person who said "HIP HOP IS DYING! OMG!"

he's albino and growing up, "all the white kids picked on him for his condition" and he felt "most at home amongst black people"

in a lot of his songs he talks about how black people influenced him in more positive ways than white people, he doesn't like the idea of "race" and stuff like that

Not to mention that he's an incredible emcee and absolutely ****ing slams live. I don't care if he's purple with pink polka dots; I've never seen an emcee put forth such a commanding and energy-drenched performance ever.

growing up? he's 35 years old.

He doesn't care about race but makes sure to identity with black people only.

Robbinsdale is a 20 minute drive from where i live. It's not exactly full of inspiring black youth (particularly not of the Muslim variety) but times have changed so i can't speak for back then.

As for the music, i find his exaggerated soulfulness- for reasons you can guess- particularly unnecessary.

I did like the champion ep though, he went hard on that. Back when his persona was new and compelling like all these sappy rhymesayer guys

Yeah, rhymesayers is wack.

Also, Doom hasn't been on rhymesayers for like 17 years and he's the only good act still associated with them.

As a 35 year old myself, I assure you we too had childhoods.
