i swear hip hop has never been this shit, now its all about
bragging and flexing about how "strong" you are
>thugga will break a nigga nose lil nigga!
nonsensical acronyms and namedropping random brands
>uoeno uoeno uoeno uoeno
>versace versace versace versace
>spendin errything on alexander wayne!
>yeezy yeezy jumped over jumpan
talking about how tough of a drug dealer you are to keep that "SKREET CRED", constantly saying shit like plug, ice, wrists and similar
>muh plug cookin some real good shit
>we movin diego
>in love with that coca like they OT
>9mm my brothers my keeper he be servin that ether
namedropping random athletes that dont got anything to do with it
>michael vick cook it so good man cause he use a lefthand
>two 9s on me like im warren sapp
>she changed her hair again my bitch like dennis rodman
constantly having the need to inform everyone about your "realness"
>im the realest nigga you ever seen since mj
>whats this i see? mothafuckas tryna act like gs!
talking about sex and fucking sluts
>i just hit a 3 peat, fucked 3 hoes i met this week
>if she aint a virgin then the bitch only average
>you ain neva had no rich sex
informing everyone about how rich you are
>40 on my wrists
>diamonds in my teeth so talking aint cheap!
>talking bout Ms nigga!
trying to get simpathy from everyone with self-criticizing lyrics, playing on that "im just another human being, i aint perfect" card, portraying yourself as a self aware addict or someone whos heart has been broken, etc
>that codeine future tried to give it up, man i cant give it up
>drake on diamonds dancing and entire hotline bling
>stoner young thugga, stoner young thugger
>when you fuckin on a nigga, do you think about me
so why aren't we allowed to enjoy conscious rap again? is there an actual reason?
every time i try to do it all these meme rap fans here start spamming "le born in le wrong generation", "g2bed dad XDDDDDDD", "le illmatic le mos def XDDDDDD list goes on" and similar
DS2 was really depressing wtf are u talking?
>so why aren't we allowed to enjoy conscious rap again? is there an actual reason?
production is always garbage. the positive meaning they try to preach is always mis-informed. If i wanted knowledge and heartfelt lyrics I'd listen to some folk music or you know READ A BOOK ffs
Popular hip-hop is more redundant than ever but the /r/hiphopheads crowd that infests /mu/ will just maymay-arrow you with ">le wrong generation xDDDD" posts because they're knee-jerk reactionaries who believe that if you criticize Young Thug and moan-trap it means you hate things just because they're popular.
>hip hop finally starts being musically bearable
>lyricsfags complain that they don't get MUH COMPLEX THEMES like impersonating Scarface
why don't lyricsfags just become literate so that they can enjoy words that actually take effort to put together and let the rest of us enjoy actual music?
and i hate all these people who are trying so hard to intellectualize future's music, people are calling him deep and shit
there's nothing deep, sad or metaphysical about it, DS2 is not some metaphysical concept album. its like, people are so sensitive about enjoying something that people perceive as "dumb" that they feel the need to try to intellectualize it when its really not applicable. if you want to enjoy dumb hip hop like future then enjoy it, it is what it is. trying to find some deeper meaning in "imma put my thumb in her butt" or "i just fucked yo bitch in some gucci flip flops" just makes you look like a tryhard.
future is as straight forward as it gets, stop trying to make his music more than what it is...
either he's just another dumbass addict and an ex drug dealer (nothing deep or sad about it) or it's all probably fake: it's an act and a marketing tool. like, just look at him, he is in shape and is constantly working. then look at that idiot gucci mane if you want to see what a real addict looks like.
ds2, codeine crazy, etc, i think its marketing, all of it. the industry behind him wants you to think he's addicted to it, because it sells. that's the way the music industry works.
holy crap you're such a crybaby. Nobody is forcing you to reply to us or even care about trap music. just filter the word and move on. certain songs on ds2 are depressing I don't see how thats trying to "intellectualize" It. Fuck off and go listen to real rap.I never see anybody who likes trap music go out of their way to diss the shit you like. so give us the same respect
>tfw when I grew out of being an angsty little shit like OP
>tfw I know that complaining about something won't change it
>tfw able to appreciate different types of rap music for their strengths and not get hung up on petty shit
Hi there! You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up.
You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, when your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation. Oops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started. Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely necessary to the post that you're making.
Now, there's no need to thank me. I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous imageboard culture and kill yourself.
>so why aren't we allowed to enjoy conscious rap again? is there an actual reason?
what exactly makes you think "you aren't allowed to enjoy what you want"? you are the guy making a thread crying about people enjoying things you don't.
why don't you just listen to shit you like? you must be a very sad person
I always laugh whenever someone calls Future a genius.
With both arms covered in tattoos like that the odds of him being a Mensa member or pillar of the community are extremely low.
I don't think I've ever heard of a mensa member that did anything noteworthy, besides do stupid shit like memorizing digits of pi or be able to do calculus really fast.
mensa is a garbage dump for wasted potential
It's pretty obvious you are OP dude. You are the one being absolutely furious that people like "less intelligent" rap than you do but at the same time try to act as it is everybody else who is forbidding you to listen to rap you like. Not only that, you also seem to completely oblivious to the contradictory hypocrisy in your original post and all the ones following it. I simply refuse to believe there is more than one person on /mu/ this dense. And this is why I'm 99% certain that you are indeed OP.
And I do hope that one day you will learn to stop torturing yourself by listening to swag rap and just listen to shit you like. Have a nice day
To be honest, I think all rap is memerap but OP thinks "conscious rap" is different (I guess) and somehow better. Atleast I'm keeping my negative opinions in here.
>You are the one being absolutely furious that people like "less intelligent" rap
I associate with people who like that and it has never bothered me. It sounds alright but I really can't get into it. Some lines, usually in the chorus, are funny though but thats about all it does for me.
>but at the same time try to act as it is everybody else who is forbidding you to listen to rap you like.
But I haven't been able to listen to rap in years, I'm sorry, I'm just not very interested at the moment. I listen to other trash that people constantly make fun of but because I'm such a stupid hipster, it only makes me appreciate the music I like a bit more and doesn't upset me. I don't know why I typed all this, I really need to find better things to do when I'm bored.
more black people here than you think, we just don't out ourselves, same reason grills don't say they're female unless they want attention
but your race literally means nothing when it comes to appreciating music you fucking idiot
Braggadocio spawned from the "bling" era of HipHop and became a reocurring theme.
Just as much as rock artists wail over instrumentation about a bitch or some arbitrary theme, rap artists visit the same themes too
but the problem is this fatass cracker has a bunch of videos of him and his white friends as teenagers acting like normal cacs doing they cactivities with 0 of that fake blackccent he now uses
everything about him is so fake it pisses me off
i still cant believe coonye done put his wack cac ass on a track
"NIGGAS ARE MAD AT THIS DUDE CUZ HE'S A "HIPHOP PURIST" WHICH IS THE WORST TERM EVER.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? WHAT IS HIPHOP? WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME WHAT HIPHOP IS YOU FUCKIN 500G PRIVATE COLLEGE LOAN PAYING VEGAN JERKOFF? I'M FROM THE BRONX. BORN RAISED & DYING HERE. NEVER LIVED ANYWHERE ELSE AND I DON'T HAVE THE AUDACITY TO TELL NIGGAS "THIS IS HIPHOP", "THAT ISN'T HIPHOP"
JOEY BADASS IS HIPHOP
FRENCH MONTANA IS HIPHOP
ACTION BRONSON IS HIPHOP
ERYKAH BADU IS HIPHOP
A MCCHICKEN WITH CHEESE AND EXTRA PICKLES IS HIPHOP
PLAYING XBOX AND TELLING WHITE TWEENS TO "STICK THEY GOGURT IN THEY GRANDMA RASCLAT PUSSYOLE" IS HIPHOP
MY DICK IS HIPHOP"
Future kinda covers that in the VladTV interview, the concept of 'dumbing down'
Meaning can be intended or accidental, either are valid to discuss. Future conveys meaning through sonics not lyrics. Listen to the expression in the voice, you can't rely on RepGenius to validate hip-hop.
No it isn't.
Like for example here, I can't tell if he's using autotune or not.
or here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2y-edrXIZjA
Meanwhile in a song like this it's easy as fuck to tell it's autotune
i don't see the point in having kanye and rocky on the hook if you can't hear kanye that well. just leave him off then. seems like the only reason would be for publicity/listens. also the hook are really average. and the intro reminds me of "no makeup" on section 80, in terms of like, what are you guys thinking? overall disappointed with this one.
>didn't knoe but freddie gibbs came to my dead city in bumfuck canada before shadow of a doubt got released last year so he probably wouldve been playing shit from pinata
This shit kills me every-time I listen to that masterpiece. Fucking get depressed because of this shit.
fyi this is how future sounds with autotune hook only, nothing else
he barely uses it, the thing about him and autotune is totally overblown
Seriously? You guys can't hear the fucking slurred notes whenever Future elongigates a word or something? That's the autotune trying to grasp nearby notes in the key.
An example of Future without autotune is Same Damn Time.
Basically he's always on autotune, except he mastered the way of using it so sometimes you can't notice it.
I'd be psyched for either. Although I don't think that Gibbs' rhymes and lyrics are on MF DOOM's level. DOOM's flow sounds a bit awkward at first and takes a bit of listening to get it. Someone wrote an entire essay about it on Genius:
