I'm speechless. I read the whole of that post, and agreed completly. I've been a big Hip-hop fan for a good few years, and I've argued my case that Hip-hop really isn't the mainstream rap that everyone bases it on. In all honesty, when I first got into the whole genre, I'd mainly listen to West Coast music, NWA, Snoop Dogg etc.. and didn't even think about the lyrics - even nowadays I'll be having a shower and just start rapping a bit of 'From the depths of the sea, back to the block, Snoop Doggy Doggy funky, yes but of the Doc...'Originally Posted by Bliss
But then I did some research on artists, started listening to lyrics, and had a realisation of real Hip-hop, and that, even though there's a minority, there are lyrics that actually mean something, rather then stereotypical rapper.
I'll be back later with some inspirational verses, can think of some good storytelling ones, but I'll put some thought into it so it doesn't get stereotyped.
