First of all, the guy's not racist, and if you get that out of reading the post, then you're either completely insecure, or you're just completely
delusional. He made very valid points, and used great reference.
Why didn't he use a picture of Eminem? Haha, why does he have to be white? That sounds like you're racist. Why not asian, or hispanic? It just so
happens that the majority of 'rappers' are African American, so get real. Would you call a black person racist if they posted pictures of baseball
players he didn't really like, and they all happened to be white? And Eminem isn't wearing BIGA$$ chains either.
But, about that, don't single people out for what they're merely wearing. The way you dress has nothing to do with it, and I would love to see the
way you dress. Not trying to be rude, but you see my point. Now a $410,000 chain is ridiculous and I agree there.
Why doesn't he call out Metal or Country? Probably because country doesn't always reference "Sipp'n Champagne" and poppin pills, and smack'n
'hoes', or being a 'gangsta' (and I really don't care for country by the way; some Johnny Cash is rather nice though). And a lot of metal has
more talent than pretty much any genre of music when it comes to lyrics, musical technicality, and overall talent. There is ridiculous music
everywhere, in every genre. Not just Hip-hop, Metal, Country, Rock, etc....
Music to me is defined by passion. Talent is merely how much passion you have in one or more areas, in my opinion and I draw, write, and play music.
Am I talented? Eh, most say so, but I also have deep passions for all of those things. I didn't just wake up and know anatomy and scales.
So please, don't judge appearances and simply give credit where it's due.
And mainstream is the last place you want to give credit. Especially nowadays...
Anyway, here is a 'Metal' song that I think fits ATS rather well. The lyrics are very well thought out and you can tell they're intelligent:
