the choruses, the beats, the production, the atmosphere/instruments in general are just so amazing. I can honestly overlook below to above average rapping and consistently bad yet somehow seem meaningful lyrics.

Before watching that SNL performance, I'd never looked up any of his live performances before. Right now, I'm just reeling at how impressive a showman he turned out to be. Like, wow.

"he does take it too far tho, its 2013... everyones kinda over that stuff haha"

smh that's definitely not true



"she complains about slavery though she never was in it and this so called terrible white america has made her

millions to which she hasn't even payed any taxes on so to call her a hypocrite would be an understatement"

andcas cmon it is ignorant as all hell if you don't see why black people living now would bring up slavery. you don't have to be IN it to still be experiencing the residual effects of it, it affects every black person in America. and "oh wow I sell a lot of records and some of my customer demographic is white, I guess white folks controlling america isn't so bad after all" and she paid her taxes off anyway

I dunno, it seems like she doesn't even really care about slavery or whatever, and if she does, she

seems to care more about her checkbook than the actual issue of post-racist american anxiety.

"post-racist" implies that racism isn't still a big problem but if she really did only care about money I'm pretty sure she'd have released a shit ton of music while her hype was at its peak and made millions more dollars than she did lol, instead the only thing she released since her album was that song she was legally obligated to make.

I used "post-racist" because a quite a few people use it to engage in reverse racist practices, which are very wrong. Also, a lot "racial problems" we have these days are socio-economic based, which are very much linked to but not a direct extension of race.

it's a bit of a butchered topic these days, simply because it's so overused. "look at all mah economic and drug problems, it musta been dem white people's fault!"



seems like they can't come up with many new things to talk about. and, it's a ridiculously easy way to obtain "controversy", which in turn creates attention, which is really what most of them are after the entire time.

lakie, we're no where near post-homophobic times.



we'll need another generation to a generation and a half for that to happen.

"if it seems dumb to analyze a rappers lyrics then they probably stand for nothing and are stupid to begin with"

"it's usually a tired excuse to either do nothing with your life or act a fool. no one should buy that "the white man is keeping me down" bullshit anymore. in the artists case they just use it as a cheap way to seem controversial and sell records."



smh that's very ignorant. ppl of color certainly aren't trapped in the hood and can't find jobs because they're naturally lazy and stupid. with black ppl it goes all the way back to the slavery era, you can't just dehumanize an entire race of ppl for generations and try and make them stupid, then release them to their own devices in a country that still hates/fears them. it wasn't even 100 years ago they were publicly being hosed and you could brutally murder a black teenage boy for looking at a white woman. it's not as explicit and outspoken, maybe even not as conscious, as it was years ago but racism is still very alive in America and ppl of color are still oppressed.

gabe knows what's up, tho i'd argue it's less about race and more about socioeconomics (that of course has its roots in race). i feel the same way about all the poor wangsters who end up meth addicts or meth dealers

@andcas the lyrics are probably dumb (haven't heard this) but it makes an interesting case study as to what a rich black guy formerly from the hood thinks appeals to/relates to "his people"

Ugh. Fine, dammit. Racism will never fucking end because we are all fucking humans who especial excel at categorizing things - the thing that allows us to identify what makes one thing different from another. And even if it is end, we'll still use other shit to do it, like religion or political ideology.



Andcas' point still stands. Exploitation of tragedy is a pretty shit thing to do.
