First of all, he is a different kind of rapper. By the very nature and content of this song he is different. He doesn't rap about weed, drugs, cars,
money, materialistic things, and sex. Also he doesn't do many hooks and all his songs have plenty of substance. So your first point is completely
Ummmm, all of that is irrelevant. I posted that video at the end as an alternative critique of mainstream hip hop to this Hopspin clown. You started
this thread using his song as an explanation of whats wrong with "our degenerate youth." Hopspin is just another symptom of whats wrong, the guys an
idiot. The song was garbage and so is he as a rapper, lol. But im glad you realize that Pharohe's songs have substance. It give me some hope for you.
Secondly, he clearly talks about guys having sex, multiple times in the song. But why does that even matter? He never claimed this song was
an end all be all description of problems. What exactly is your problem dude? Here are some examples anyway to prove you wrong once again: "you havin
sex with every mutha #in body you see, with a past so dark..." "when i say fun what do you envision? prolly drinkin and smokin out with ya crew and
chillin with clueless women you tryin to bang..." "Do you even have any goals aside from baggin these hoes?"
-_- He criticizes the guys for only being concerned about getting sex, not for the actual act. I was referring to later in the song when hes talking
about going out to the club. He says "brainless bitches" which in and of itself is horrible and demeaning to women, but goes on the say "you want
Romeo? you're not worthy, your cock thirsty, you're nasty and probably got herpes." So in a nutshell, hes saying if a girl has sex with a guy, shes
stupid, not worthy of any man, and nasty.
Thirdly, if you think high school kids don't play beer pong you are a moron. Enough said.
Not where im from they don't.
Fourth, his exact quote is "all you interested in is fightin, rappin, and basketball" not playin ball. Did you even listen to the song? He
obviously meant as in spectating, which is extremely common for blacks. You're obviously not black.
Lol, no that doesn't make any sense. Who is interested in fighting? Like just goes around hoping people will fight so they can watch? Hes clearly
talking about being actively involved. But even if he did mean interested as in just something you like to watch or are stay up on, he still said
rappin. If nobody was interested in rap, nobody would hear his music, either way it makes zero sense.
Fifth, he says that the gangsters in the street are acting like neanderthals. Thats ignorant? Are you kidding me? Calling a spade a spade is
ignorant now? Geeze kid...
Nope, he says "Why do black people gotta be the only ones that can't evolve, cause you in the street acting like a neanderthal" Hes clearly saying
black people are like neanderthals. He in no way differentiates from someone who is acting like a gangster.
Sixth, he is helping out. He could possibly wake people up. He actually gives decent advice in the song like "you won't romeo be patient". He
also promotes labor, having goals, etc. And exposes a lot of peoples bad habits and what not.
Lol, he tells women to be more patient, yes, patient clearly meaning dont have sex. He gives no advice at all. All he does is criticize things he
doesn't agree with. He never promotes labor or having goals.
Nobody ever claimed that this ONE SONG was an end-all be-all to identifyng every single problem in hip hop and offering solutions to solve it.
Is that what you expected? Because you act like it. Then you post your own song as if this is some kind of game of one up? Get lost troll.
I just made you look like a fool, wait----- you did
I never said I thought that this one song should identify every problem with hip hop. However, he brought up a lot of issues within that one song and
it was clear to me from the way he treated those that hes no different from the rappers hes blasting. No critical thought went into the creation of
that song I promise you, and its clear hes not educated about the issues affecting the group hes criticizing. But all the hope I had for you in the
beginning of this post is gone, lol. You fell into the same trap most "degenerate youth" fall into. You listen to music, but you dont hear it.
Declaring yourself the winner, big man, lol.
