Honestly, Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music, Kendrick Lamar - GKMC, and A$AP Rocky - Live.Love.A$AP got me back into hip-hop a few years ago. Before I was big into bands like Fugazi, Bad Brains, Rancid, etc. I still love those bands, but at the time I hated a lot of hip-hop/rap music.

Ok, I'm not baiting, I swear.

I was 14, my sister showed me this when she got back from college for winter break, and this EP put on to older Macklemore, Wu-Tang, Madvillain, and from there on out I got into more experimental stuff. I would say Madvillain was the big turning point, but I wouldn't have discovered that (at the time I did) without The Vs.

>>55461242

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.

:^)

A lot of people call me a hipster. It is not a term that I like or appreciate. Any way, there was a time when I was a dadrocker who only listened to Stevie Wonder and Queen and thought that "rap" was all stupid shit about gang violence and drugs. This album changed that for me. It made me want to find new music when I heard it, which led me on along journey and eventually to /mu/.

I used to only listen to the radio, but I'd always remember weirder songs from the radio (all those one-hit wonders in the 90's...) but this album really got me into everything- more eclectic music, dating a girl who also liked this, writing more music myself as a result of wanting to write a song better than 'Crown of Love'.

Reflektor was a bit of a disappointment for me, but Funeral is always going to be a weird monument for me.
