That made sense...thanks.
In regards to the cute little comments on rap... its a cop out. If you don`t like certain people for whatever reason then man up (or woman up) and say so. Its such a bitch move to do otherwise. Don`t hide behind trying to invalidate an enitre genre of music. And since the majority of the population only listens to rap that is played on the radio, I`m sure all this talk of lyrics and `real music` is based on something that represents only the commercial side of the genre. Its like listening to Avril Lavigne and then saying rock sucks. These are simples deductions that even the stupidest peon could make... but you choose not because its easier to viel your disdain than just come right out and say what you want. have fun wallowing in your ignorance.
My favorite "modern" music? "What I`ve Done" by Linkin Park. Fantastic. Just fantastic. I love the music video too. Breathtaking.
Okay, I`m done.
First of all, primetimekin, I didn`t know rappers deserved to be called their own race. I would`ve just called of them "Stupid-arrogant-no-talent-idiots-that-make-undeserving-amounts-of-money-and-apparently-can`t-spell."Whew, what a mouthful to say.
Look, everywhere you see, there are always youth influenced negatively by rap artists. I`m surrounded by them. I ask them what is good about rap, they just say "get a life." Oh, real mature.
I have never seen a rap artist donate money to a charity, a good cause. Fact is, their all just money-sniffing idiots. Rappers like 50 cent, or even hip-hop artists like Akon rely heavily on the use of women in their music videos. Shouldn`t music just be music, not about women? Hell, go watch some porn, or get laid. Then again, I can`t get laid yet.
anyways these people looked like they had fun
coming up with something creative is much harder.If you look at the artist whose main songs are just creative with no meaning, they are able to create more meaningful songs than other artist. Look at lil Wayne`s Hustlers Musik or T.I.`s live in the sky.
they are just not at the level of other rap artist.
Quit being rapper racist
GGGGGGGGGGG G backpack!
and D_Fishbait.The lyrics are too simple. Every line ends in one syllable. No creativity. Clever is what matters. Deep would be the same as emo music. and those same that you claim aren`t deep have the ability to be deeper than your artist.
"See i`ll be ridin just, Ridin alone Wit my daddy on my mind like u gotta be kiddin How da hell u ain`t here 2 see ya prince do his thing Sometimes i wanna drop a tear but no emotions from a king "
Thats from the same artist that says"I see beef as dead meat"
"I came as a callI came as flatI came too soon so I came back"
I am on IABI am typingI do the right thing, Like Spike Lee
No creativity. Boring. It sounds like he did that in a sec.
And Soulja Boy isn`t really rap, its crank dat. Its not about the lyrics its the dance, he is a decent choreographer.
And I guess my meani
Ebonics is a dialect, like Spanish, french, italian, romanian, english, german, actually, all modern languages. Its just one of the newer ones. Like in spanish they now have the P language which is used so that parents can speak and their children wont understand. The point of a language is to communicate, speaking both english and ebonics it is much easier to communicate in ebonics.
Im all for conversations, but both of you are still denouncing other forms of music which is lame. Music has many different currencies of worth. Lyrics, beat, melody, personal association, interpretation.. the list runs on. give eachother a hug.
Hey guys i got shot nine times can i go bowling wiht you know?
GGGGGGGG G backpack!
now THAT is a song with depth. i wouldn`t expect many people to understand or appreciate it, but if you look it it for it`s true value, it is an amazing song. now tell me how combining "gloc" and "coma" to come up with "glaucoma" and repeating f*ck over and over and over compares to the pure philosophical genius of modest mouse`s lyrics.
Anyway, this isn`t for humiliation, or torture, or any other thing. This is all meant to be exercise and entertainment for the prison inmates. Filipinos really like to dance; they love it. Dance and sing.
For anyone curious about more "Filipino culture," look up Wowowee. A horrid game show, when watched daily (my mom insists on blasting it every chance she gets).
gggggggggggg- g backpack!
oh wait, thats all of them
better stay away from that prison....
Lil wayne, T.I., and Young Jeezy (Best rapper`s alive)
I still don`t get how people don`t like "dem boys Pu$$y, born without a back boneand if they strapped we can trade like the dow joneswet em up, I hope he got his towel onI aim at your moon and get my howl on"
"Unf*cking believable, lil wayne`s the presidentf*ck em f*ck em f*ck em, even if they celibateI know the game is crazy, its more crazy than its ever beenim married to that crazy b*tch call me Kevin Federline"
Ok, im done for the day. Rap vs. World goes will have to hold on until tomorrow. So I just sit in my big house surrounded by my weaponries, I keep them away like I got leprosy.
RAP IS DEAD (//_-)
And I find that most people that dont like Soulja Boy have no dancing abilities as a whole.
I believe the lyrics that my favorite bands play are very meaningful, symbolic, and metaphorical at times. That, combined with their supreme understanding and composition of music, makes them destroy rap in the music world.
you believe that repetitive beats give strict structure to a purely lyrical based sound. You do not understand that music has the ability to move someone far more than words alone.
when it comes down to it, soulja boy sucks.
Every line can be used as a before and after on Jeopardy. Even while high he still creates amazing lyrics
For instance, he used Fruity loops to make his "music"
I have had to design real music with finale- where you actually use notes, instead of pre-recorded sounds. You have to arrange them on a staff, several different lines, so that they will compliment each other. That means runs in the same key, as well as adding notes to make the chord a 7th, or a minor, or the like.
then you must use different time signatures to achieve the proper rhythm you need, including triplets, dotted eighth notes, and any other notated music.
that is real music.
A poet moves people with words.
a musician moves people with music.
a rap "artist" is a poet, if anything.
bands like underoath, emery, chiodos, red hot chili peppers, are musicians.
they combine poetry with music. more talent than any rap "artist."
If you listen to any other music, they all have basic rhymes. Rap has the most creativity. As in the example used, notice all the allusions made to mortal kombat and his use of simile`s and metaphors. Anyone can get a beat and then keep adding things to make it more complex. Pure lyricism is harder to find
If you plan to be a rap "artist", then you should at least but that much effort into the lyrics. I respect free style rap, as well as some, really meaningful, rap- but only for the lyrics, not for the musical creativity.
There is much more to music than beeps, and bass hits, a whole lot more. It takes years and years to understand fully how music works. I could ask a rap "artist" to describe the circle of fifths, and he would have no idea what im talking about.
but why choose to degrade your intellect when your with your friends? Why not act every day as if you were in a business meeting? you will gain so much more respect, as you will be viewed as a professional, rather than a "ho bangin" sleeze bag.
And most music lacks complex sentence lines. A common misconception is that Soulja boy is rap. Soulja boy is really Crank Dat which is based more on beats than lyrics. What he was able to do was create a name for himself using only FruityLoops studio. Rap uses more rhetoric devices than any other music form. Lil wayne uses a large amounts of similies metaphors etc. He uses words in ways that weren`t imagined before.Hit them with a glock, put them in a coma, now what dat boy got.... glaucoma.
In other words, to succeed in this country, you have to bypass the "simple" language, and learn those, apparently incredibly hard, silent letters in order to appear respectable and be successful.
that is, unless you find satisfaction in boating greedy intentions, and disrespect for women- then you can succeed as a modern rap "artist".
Beethoven had a great understanding of music.
There is no possible way you can fit that much knowledge in a person like "soulja boy`s" little tiny, ignorant, selfish brain.
allow me to point you to a recent study on ebonics:http://www.aawc.com/ebonicsarticle.html
You are correct in saying that there is no "right" or "wrong" language. But a person`s dialect reflects their upbringing. If you look to the origins of ebonics, as well as where it is commonly used, you will find that the people who use it are most commonly not introduced to technology, and proper education.
For example, you do not see our president, major corporations such as Apple, or Microsoft, or any other company basing their language off of ebonics. This is because Ebonics is a sign of lack of proper education, and the inability to convey a point properly to another person.
And, as far as music. Some rap, can be very meaningful in poetry. However, musically, it is a disaster. most music puts forth effort in the lyrics, as well as incredible musical structure with complex t
and I can`t wait
That having been said, one of the inmates interviewed talked about the main prison in Manilla. He said that gangs controlled everything and that inmates were routinely murdered and chopped into pieces to be dumped into the septic tank. He said he witnessed 30 such murders while there.
The name of the film is Hors les Murs (Out of Bounds) (could not find imdb.com entry), and I recommend it if you can find it.
Trivia fact: Manilla has the biggest prison in the world.
Rap also has paradoxes.
"I`m cold, like a midnight in AspenI am the President and the assassin"Here he explains that he is cold or rather heartless with no emotion. And he is both a ruler (President) and he is heartless like an assassin.
To everyone, quit being rapper racist, if rap is too simple, you don`t understand the basics
And for double entendres" I cover my track like butter, so where the bread beI see beef as dead meat"
For those who do not understand ebonics he is saying that he has great rhymes spread throughout his album (cover my track like butter) and for this he deserves money (bread. Notice how he combines butter and bread) He sees competitions (beef) as something which he can
If you want to get technical, english one of the dumbest languages there is. Quicksand is slow, there are way too many silent letters and you dont pronounce words how they are spelled. But it is effective at communication.
And the Zimbardo Experiment:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_pr...
It might look cool, but they had to teach them the dances and get them in sync.
It`s not "Those Silly Filipinos" thats ignorance.The guards and administration.I`ts a form of humiliation.
OR I could be comleatly wrong and it`s a form of fun recreation / physical activity which takes away from the cells and man rape.
PINOY 4 eva!!!
Take a lesson from me, lighten up...eat some cake...be happy...and enjoy music. okie dokie? =]
...Ooh that`s right, murderers and rapists. Gotcha.
every crime is based off of selfish deeds, and every source of trouble on this earth, including death, is result of greed.
take a lesson from ghandi - a man deserving of respect, unlike the prick "soulja boy" who achieved fame by boasting his low IQ, ignorant speech, disrespect for people (especially women), and obsession with material goods.
Kaleotora, there are far worse songs out there. At least these two are catchy, even if they suck. I prefer the Travis Barker version of Crank That anyway.
and well, they are murderers and stuff... guess it`s ok :/
You`re essentially watching the product of torture.
(On another note- FIRST POOOST)
