all the white people i know wanna suck eminem's dick. and word.. i think you are referring to hipsters. but out of the people i know that only like underground hiphop...most are white.
Thats all i was referring to when i got to shows and shit its almost all white people. Judging from this thread tho its just where im at lolz.
"all i can say is its a black thing"
it is an EDUCATION thing. i mostly listen to artists that people would consider underground, but i still enjoy wocka flocka/jeezy/gucci and fully understand why they are able to sell records... because i'm somewhat educated about the culture.
please explain how "EDUCATION" of the culture has helped shape the artist you listen to? not that i am questioning your taste or point. But you imply that an education of some sort helped you to like/appreciate those artist? and without said education you wouldnt?
