Rampant Foolishness

*Sigh* This just must be addressed:

 

 

When did people like this dude V.I.C. become instant celebs and "artists" for ish like "Get Silly"?  Are we serious?  He hit up TRL yesterday to "perform".  We all know the R&B/Hip-Hop/Rap games are more diluted than ever before, but this ish is officially out of control.  Why are songs composed of all of 15 different words topping the charts?  And no, that "Lookin' Boy" track is no better.  I can't even tell who's who anymore either.  I'm tempted to blame Soulja Boy for this extra basic ass rapping style that everybody thinks is cute now.  But this foolishness is bigger than him.  Let's just do better peoples.  I'm done. Your thoughts? Speaking of foolishness,

Cee-Lo was spotted at the London airport yesterday.  *side eye*  I just don't think he can help it.

None of this hip hop music

None of this hip hop music isn't any good now and forever. First off, I use to listen to hip hop and rap when I was coming up, now since I turned 32 this year, it is nothing but trash. I am pissed off at the fact that these people who are over radio stations and recording labels have no souls at all. They have sold them to the devil. Second, I though as a person gets older, they change for the better, not get worse over time. I hate the fact that hip hop/rap has gotten so foolish and stupid. Last, it seems that if you are black and speak out about how hip hop/rap has turned rotten, you are called a "sell out", and it hurts to hear that. I do not like foolishness and ignorance at all. I just wish that the hip hop community address REAL issues that affect people everyday such as abuse of children, seniors, people of different races, women, homophobia, and some forms of racism(s) and discrimination that people face instead of how much money they have, the cars, houses which they do not own, pimping women, and last, violence. To end, Hip hoop /Rap makes African Americans in general look like a bunch of idiots, coons, and last, brainless.

No mama, no mama no, Penny

No mama, no mama no, Penny off Good Times lookin boy! I LOVE this song. It's so funny... There are simply different types of hip hop now, that's all... I don't think they expected us to be cutting a mean rug off this when they made it.

Also, recall that these are

Also, recall that these are suburban kids. They won't talk about crackheads or poverty, or whatever it is everyone on here wants to hear from their rap music. They are young and they don't come from that. They will talk about dancing, getting silly, throwin some D's on their report card, whatever. It is DANCE MUSIC. I'd rather have my 13-year-old little sister and her friends dance around to "Get Silly" or "Lookin Boy" than some song telling them to pop this and suck that and call them whores and bitches. Let's recall, for all those who are up here going on about Nas and Jay-Z: Nas made Ooochie Wally (one of the dirtiest songs you will hear in your life) Jay-Z made Big Pimpin (materialistic, I Luv Hoes, etc.) and both artists made some of the most degrading music videos on DAYTIME television back in their heydey. So...did they ruin Hip Hop too? I never hear anyone say that.

If you can't get down with

If you can't get down with the music of today that means you are getting old. REMEMBER what your parents thought of hip hop when you where young. They too thought it was crap. You are getting old, but its ok we all do.

I guess dance music isn't

I guess dance music isn't supposed to exist anymore. I didn't realize we couldn't like a fun song for the sake of its fun-ness. I didn't think that I could just turn on my ipod for a gym jam, or play something in the radio for on my way to the club with my girls. When did we all get so serious? Anytime anything that is beat driven comes on the radio, everyone throws a huge fit and asks why something that has a catchy beat and a memorable hook is popular. Songs like that have ALWAYS been made, and no one ever said it was the ruin of society as we know it. I dunno. Maybe I just haven't turned into my mother quite yet, longing for the "good old days." I mean, when I was that age, I was listening to Cash Money and N*Sync (I was versatile, LOL). So, I guess I don't see what the problem is. I have a much bigger problem with kiddies listening to R. Kelly than V.I.C. Someone want to explain for me?

Everyone, remember when you

Everyone, remember when you used to hate how your parents hated on your style of music/clothing/etc and you promised yourself that you would be the same way? Well, guess what? Anyone that is downing VIC, Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris, etc, are doing just that. How fake can yall be? Dont knock someone's hustle. All they have is a different, more laid-back, fun, style of rapping. And guess what else? PEOPLE LIKE IT! And it's a good thing that people rather be influenced to DANCE than to F*** THE POLICE and such. It's not a bad thing that styles are changing, it happens all over the world in many different situations. get over it...everyone is different. respect all styles! its called unity people, have some.

Did someone jus say who cares

Did someone jus say who cares about the lyrics? What kind of ignorance is that. Rap is becoming the only type of music where the lyrics don't mean ANYTHING, and to me, that's just sad. Why not just make instrumentals and be done with it then. And again, the excuse, "would u rather the kids listen too" is garbage.

I agree with everyone who

I agree with everyone who said they hate this new rap music. Gangsta rap and conscious rap can never die because those lifestyles aren't dead. So, if you are out there supporting songs like "Get Silly" just because it has a good beat then u're dumber than the idiots making the song. HOV is the best and one of the last great MCs.

Pharrell and NERD's music is way better and not even on any level of Soujah Boy or VIC. For those teachers working with student playing this crap music, how about you expose them to some real music. I work with children and we'll let them play Lil Mama but as far as Souljah Boy no way!

[quote comment="120477"]It's funny the reasons people use to justify songs like "Get Silly," talking about how it's better than listening to some gangsta rap. My question is, why set the bar so low. Eating garbage is better than cannibalism, but I can't say either of them is too tempting for my taste. I'm 22, and the sad thing is the alot of the kids that are just a little bit younger than me would rather listen to this then some classics from, say, the 1990's. But then again, those are the same ones who only write in txt message form. We've gotta raise our standards, that's all I'm saying.

I think that Luke started all

I think that Luke started all this bullshit rap music. He took simple lyrics and added some dope beats and people love it. Most of it is club music anyway. All people care about is whether they can dance to it or not. Then Cash Money and No Limit took it to the top and niggas have been doing it ever since. I think if people didn't buy it and listen to it then we wouldn't have this problem. So let's take responsibility as consumers.

An having good sense.My parents didn't fight hard for us in the 60's and 70's for us now in the new millenium too be acting like we should be on the back of the busor drinking and eating int he colored section again. Come'on get a grip and WAKEUP and stop acting like COON IDIOTS. GEt back to you elegance and intelligence don't let these music execthat are all BLACK make you think being a idfdoitic N- word is COOL. Cause the white man isn't the one making a fool of you its the black man: Its your Lil Waynes, Soulja Boys, Pdiddiy's ,and other rappers out there that are guilty of acting n-wordhish and making big bucks offf stupid black folks that let this mess hynotize you into thinking that ish is cool. an it is not it makes you look FOOLISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
