I would like to add that this is not "Hip Hop".
This is bad behavior labeled "Hip Hop".
Like the poster above me broke it down for all of you with video.
The new "hip hop" and it's "artists" are creations of corporate entities.
Theses new cats are practically cartoon characters.
Example, back in the day, most hip hop artists had to actually struggle to get to where they wanted to be in the game. Even Guru, who's father was a
judge, had to struggle because his dad wasn't accepting what his son was doing.
There was an actual hunger and desire to succeed.
Now we have this kid called "Drake".
This kid was on a TV show for many years, getting paid.
Then with a fan base of teenagers already established.
He "became" a rapper.
Dude never struggled.
That's what made me love Hip Hop from the start.
It was seeing a guy telling a true story about struging and making it.
Like watching the movie Rocky. The MCs I love and still listen to we're real life Rockys.
I love the underdog.
KRS 1 and Public Enemy actually taught me things that I never would have learned in school.
Now we have this girl MC named Kreayshawn that has an instant hit because of YT.
Shes up there talking "Gucci Gucci, Prada Prada, Fendi Fendi.."
The rhymes skills don't even exist anymore.
But this track has been pushed so hard to the masses and manipulated to be "liked"
What I did notice about the video was when it first came out that it had a "dislike" percentage of well over 60% and with comments that concurred with
Now those dislikes have been removed along with those comments.
The "like" percentage is now 94%.
And now I only see approval comments for the song.
It's like "since everyone else likes this song, I'm going to like it too".
This IS straight up brain washing.
Because if you listen to the song it is god awful.
But how can 94% be wrong?
That's the truth.
