Another reaction I have to the video in the original post:
Kasinova says that when he was young, people would tell him that he sounds like 2Pac, and he "really didn't, like, really get what they were like,
really trying to say. Until I really popped in one of them classics."
Now this is just unbelievable, that he was rapping and sounding just like the most popular rapper of all time, yet he didn't notice it, and he didn't
understand what people were saying.
It's just straight unbelievable.
Any fan of rap music knows 2Pac's voice. So it's impossible that he was a huge rap fan, and even writing his own rhymes, while not noticing or
understanding that his voice sounds just like him.
It's just impossible, because even if it was a pure coincidence that his voice sounds like him: Even then, he would notice it lol, and he would know
And then he says that he only realized it when he "really popped in one of them classics." Really? Like, he was a hip-hop fanatic and amateur
rapper, but he didn't know 2Pac's voice, until he popped in one of his classics? That just makes no sense.
2Pac sounds about the same in all his songs anyway, whether it was his later work like "California Love" or his younger work, he sounds the same. So
it's not like it would matter WHICH song he heard, or whether it was a classic or not. The fact is that anyone who has heard anything from 2Pac,
knows his unique voice. So saying that he didn't understand until he heard one of 2Pac's classics, just makes no sense. Pac's voice is equally
identifiable in his "classic" songs as well as his "non-classic" songs, whatever that would even mean lol.
And finally, the video in the OP wraps up with Kasinova saying that he was surprised when he stepped into a studio, he was surprised that his recorded
voice sounds just like 2Pac.
Not only is it unbelievable that he never noticed it before then: It's also unbelievable that someone with a totally different voice could walk into
a studio and magically find that he has 2Pac's voice.
And keep in mind that 2Pac himself had the SAME VOICE, whether talking for rapping. So it makes no sense that someone else with a different voice,
would suddenly find that he has 2Pac's voice... but only in studio. The actual voice of 2Pac didn't change depending on what room he was in lol.
So even that voice-change in Kasinova is so unbelievable that it's very suggestive that they're just playing 2Pac's living releases, and Kasinova is
just dancing and lip-sincing in his videos.
I don't think he ever free-styles without music, to show that his voice can magically change like that.
And the vids of him rapping in studio, with all the music and beats, can easily just be playing the recorded voice too, along with the music track.
