Are you like me?
Do you blame RAP and HIP HOP for the death of music to a large degree? I sure do. Call it racist – I don’t care – I’m a realist. There’s no talent – OK, almost none – yet we pretend there is when for the larger part THERE ISN’T.
I’m still in Puerto Rico. And after a long day of jet skiing, beach, partying and even dancing (I actually did some pretty decent dirty dancing), my girlfriend Jessie and I went to the room later and watched late night TV with Jimmy Fallen. Or was it, Last Call with the very talented Carson Daly. He’s talented, funny, sharp, my kind of guy.
In truth, it’s a race between him and Fallen for who has the least talent among the white guy, late night hosts. Add in Ryan Seacrest. Man, I wish I had their dough – I guess this gad guy thing only works in KC, huh?
So we’re watching the next big thing in RAP, HIP HOP from Carson right and it’s Jay Rock.
He’s a black, thugged-out rapper with ZERO TALENT. My dog Junior is a better singer. For real. The lyrics? Try bitch, gun, dope, my life sucks – what a genius! I wanted to get a large baseball bat and smash this guy in the face. STOP IT, for Christ Sake.
White people try and pretend like it’s, "Well, you have to listen to the words. See, it’s their life. It’s meaningful. You can’t just listen."
How about see this; IT SUCKS. Always did. ALL OF IT. LET ME REPEAT, ALL OF IT. AND YOU TOO,SNOOP.
"Murder was the case that they gave me" – yeah what a talent. I miss Whitney Houston. She could sing.
I actually think Rap and Hip Hop more than Disco in the 70’s, killed rock.
Radio and records, cds, downloads – whatever – have never been the same. Of course the Internet insured the death of most commercially-recorded music. And I totally hate to admit it, but Country is likely today’s best avenue for great vocals and lyrics. WOW. It’s come to that!
I was always into the "talent" of music. The voice, the style. Voices like Sinatra, Houston or Streisand. And rockers like Led Zepplin and all the pretenders that came after them. But HIP HOP? Hey, I owned the top HIP HOP club in town and it was packed all the time. But I seldom went into the club because I hated the music.
"Back that ass up" was a sure-fire, top, greatest rap/hip hop hits album of all time.
Does that hurt the black man’s image with whites and thinking class people in general?
Uh, about a million percent it does.
Do young white girls really like that sound? That’s a tough one. I guess many do, but I feel it’s more like follow the leader time. Deep down, the answer is no!
I kid you not, give me a mic and some background music and without even writing a song, I can free style this talentless crap with my raspy voice.
Bet you can too. When will it die? Please.
