Rap is Fucked

Hey, I know it’s a total fucking joke now, but I grew up with rap. LL Cool J’s Radio was the first cassette tape I remember buying. The Adventures of Slick Rick was the first CD I ever bought. So this headline makes me yearn for the days of Peter Piper and Paid in Full:
Ice-T And David Hasselhoff Team Up For Rap Album
Whatever happened to the hard line of, say, Six in the Morning?
Rhyme Pays, indeed.

  1. I know what you mean, but I am looking forward to:
    The Roots, The Tipping Point (July 13th, 2004)
    Dan The Automator: Details here- http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1479641/20031008/automator_dan_the.jhtml?headlines=true
    DJ Nu-Mark’s new album (released in April, I wonder if it’s any good…)
    AND DJ Q-bert is coming to Osaka on the 18th of July (with The Crystal Method and Ugly Duckling)

    Good hip-hop isn’t gone, it’s just a lot harder to filter the signal from the ever increasing volume of noise.

  2. Let’s go to the Q-bert concert. Are you free? Don’t for get the Nagoya sumo basho the week before. Maybe you can spend a week going job hunting in Kansai.

  3. I don’t think I can swing it, but I’ll see. You should definetely go, though, as Q-bert is my number one favorite turntablist (other favorites being Rob Swift, Babu, Rhettmatic, Kid Koala, Cut Chemist, and Rectangle among others).

  4. man rap is crap, but you aint shit, you cant spuit, your gonna fall in my mother fucking pit, yor a bitch, snitch, with a gay ass twitch, you cant rhyme or do crime because you are on the computer all the time!!!
