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.


loooool
"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?

throwing up the fact that white people like the only relevant white rapper(eminem) is pointless, i dont even get the purpose. Regardless of any circumstances or w/e the f$ck spin you put on it, they are gonna d%ck ride him. Come on now.... you guys know that.cool

education of a subject absolutely influences how you perceive and react to something. if i wasn't EDUCATED about the meanings/reasonings/emotions/contexts/themes/histories/etc. of something then i would never be able to appreciate it on a deeper level.

The biggest problem with why this discussion will go nowhere is taste. If you enjoy something, it doesn't necessarily have to be good. Plenty of people love something because of how bad it is. People can like music just because it appeals to them. It's not the only reason to like music, the more you know about music styles and composition the more you can appreciate or dislike music. I do like the comment on education, if you can keep yourself open to other ideas or have knowledge on certain topics, you can enjoy music that references it more. But most people just like the certain "sounds" of music, whether it's mainstream or backpack hip hop, they'll flock to it without really being able to give you a concrete reason why they like it. Nothing wrong with that.

Either people understand that and are alright with it or don't and keep asking the same questions over and over because they feel like they aren't getting answers that are good enough.

Some mainstream rap is alright in my opinion. I just don't like most mainstream rappers. Dudes like Drake and Jay-Z or whoever are all just boring to me. I don't like their beats, I don't like their verses and I don't like what they rap about most of the time. Its not the fact that they are mainstream that I think they automatically suck. I think its just that a lot of mainstream rappers and boring. They found a pattern that will easily sell and they just keep doing that. They don't try to make any new shit. Just the same tired ass shit over and over again.

I don't follow? I meant that it all sounds the same to me. If I turned on the radio to the hip-hop channel right now, I wouldn't be able to tell 75% of the artists apart.

It all comes down to a matter of opinion, I guess. People like different shit.

I can't see how every rapper sounds the same... 50 does not sound anything like Kanye and Jay-Z does not sound anything like Jay-Z; if you're trying to compare their music style. If that's the case then every rapper before Jay, Lil Wayne, Nas, Drake had the same style, clever lines here and there, a smooth flow, and rapping about how much nicer you are than rapper X or Y.

What does Jay-Z raps about?
What does Drake rap about?
What does Lil Wayne rap about?
What does Kanye rap about?

I think this thread is completely misguided. You ever think it has anything to do with black people NOT going to shows, not white people going to shows? I've never been to a hip hop show that is not 80% white.

i think "mainstream rap" is more socially acceptable for white people these days than ever before. previously, white kids were hesitant to bump some mainstream rap because they feared the perception of being a wigger or trying too hard to be black.

"mainstream rap" has changed to become more white-friendly these days with less emphasis on things like selling drugs in the ghetto (which white kids aren't socially allowed to relate to) and more emphasis on general things like partying and hooking up with chicks (which anyone is allowed to relate to).

the music goes hand in hand with "hip hop fashion" where you can visually see the how white ppl have integrated in. In the early 2000's every rapper was wearing baggy ass jeans and oversized throwback jerseys. this was the uniform of the "hood" and if a white kid was wearing a throwback, people would say "damn look at that wigger. he's trying too hard". since then, the skinny jeans started popping up. and rappers started wearing Ed Hardy shit (at first) and now skate brands. they started dressing more white.

now the real question is WHY is this? i think, even if it's not deliberate, rappers/record labels are realizing that they need to break into the white crowd in order to sell more records and become successful. so they have slowly been targeting white kids. that's why Lil Wayne made that hot mess that was Rebirth and started carrying around a guitar even though he can't play it. he's trying to make a Lil Wayne image that white kids can relate to.
