I listen to a wide range of music, and this ain't the 80's, teenagers hardly know what hardcore is. Flo Rida is to music as Piero Manzoni's can
full of human feces is to art. Avicii's "Levels" could stand alone without sampling Etta James. Even if the track was made in a span of a few hours
using Fruity Loops, Avicii did a decent job of integrating James' vocals. If Flo Rida had put out a decent song, I would have gladly credited him for
it, but instead he samples a hook and raps nonsensical garbage in the verses. There is no talent, let alone critical thinking, that goes into his
music whatsoever. It is brain-rupt, which makes it hard for me to appreciate.
Read the first verse from Flo Rida:
Yes I can, doubt that I leave, I'm running with this plan
Pull me, grab me, crabs in the bucket can't have me
I'll be the president one day
January first, oh, you like that gossip
Like you the one drinking what God sip dot com
Might as well read, "DURR DUP DURHHURR DURPPP HURUR HRURURHU RR HURR PREZIDANT ONE DAY HURRR DURR BAAAAWWWW"
Now read J.R. Hayes of Pig Destroyer:
My skin has atrophied.
It has been so long since the last touch.
The maggots play their dead instruments for me.
Devour in the key of E.
Like a symphony of throats and piano wire.
Like explosions in space and prostitutes of fire.
Can you see where my dislike for nonsensical pop trash comes from? Listening to pop, for me, is like beating my head into a wall repeatedly; I can
feel my braincells disappearing.
J.R. Hayes' lyrics are profoundly beautiful, intelligent thought went into writing them. The same can't be said for Flo Rida. Yes, Flo Rida's music
is suited for a different audience, but that doesn't mean he can't at least TRY to write lyrics that make sense.
