Or eaten it like a pac man?
*clears youtube history*
but just what IS he doing with his hands for the first 20s or so?
poor guy is really, really terrible at rapping. :(
throw that boy pussy.
yeah you got me looking.
thinking bout fucking.
let me get a rubber.
is dogshit, I will 100% give you that.
straight people are scared of it, white people are scared of it AND it went viral when it came out at the start of the year
(strobe warning) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iTc2vtjxXk
It definitely wouldn't be getting any attention for being 'really bad' if it was a straight guy talking about women though.
there are plenty of songs that are really bad that get a lot of attention for that reason. Whether about sexual things or not.
Not bad enough to warrant 'going viral'. It's only gone viral because as gb said people are wont to dislike it because they're uncomfortable with it being a guy rapping about other guys, and are dressing that up as 'no really it's just a really awful song!' (which it isn't) (also sorry I'm not trying to have a go EmO).
but for me, genuinely it's a mix of terrible lyrics, poorly delivered, but then with moments of genius (the pacman bit)
Arguably it's sad that this doesn't get more attention, because look at the 'terrible' songs that have had more success: Friday, Gangnam Style etc.
I'm not trying to get defensive or feel like anyone's having a go, I'm just presenting my reaction to it - which genuinely is more based on the bad/funny lyrics, than anything else.
to Gangnam Style or Friday.
This song is explicitly about fucking people in the arse and sending them home limping.
It's hardly Saturday tea time fare.
arguably it should be though.
I think it's got great potential, but the problem is he isn't very good at rapping.
'What what in the butt' on the other hand, was objectively great.
It's fantastic that he's openly gay and doing rap - but that's not really the issue here.
(Would still enjoy this in a club tbf)
doesn't take a genius to deduce that he's purposely got a hesitant flow
it's okay to admit you don't like something instead of dismissing it as 'bad/
nice try. I genuinely only saw this this morning when my former housemate (who happens to be gay) tagged me and some others in it with a comment saying 'oh my god this is so terrible. wacka wacka'
you're taking the piss out of a perfectly fine rapper who also happens to be gay, so are assuming that he mustn't be serious/is bad
but this is, to me, bad. As with all music, it is taste, and I much prefer a different sound and style when I listen to hip hop, so maybe that is a big factor. Him being gay has literally nothing to do with that assertion.
especially when it makes me just wanna tell white people it's okay to enjoy hip hop that isn't pitchfork best new music or liquid swords, or a '90s/early '00s top 10 hit played ironically in a club
if you're a gay black male rapper?
No. Only OK if you're white.
because that would be you genuinely believing that you were somehow more enlightened on the subject of hip hop than a whole board of music lovers.
Which would be both inaccurate and arrogant. But at least a little bit funny I guess?
No, bud. You've seen what happens when someone hits a nerve. I go full snot-bubble nuts.
That post above (and actually not the rest of your comments in this thread) was just pretty much hilarious. You've not more enlightened than the majority of this board on the subject. But you did jump to some pretty massive conclusions about EMO's sentiments.
You could kill me right now, in this thread, and no one would even notice until someone needed some advice about being bald or wearing pastels.
I'd be all like, where's xylo?
I'd be like Greyfriar's Bobby.
you're my budgie down the mine shaft that keeps me from being the wettest disser. <3
but in terms of current artists I prefer to listen to foreign beggars, dr. Syntax and that kind of thing.
I wouldn't profess to be a marckee on the subject, but I'm also not completely unaware.
this chap sounds pretty traumatized http://youtu.be/X0rMrFiCvj4
Being black and gay doesn't excuse it.
it's pretty decent tbh
love the idea that songs go viral for 'being bad'
also the second time in the past week you've started a thread taking the piss out of black people for being sexy ?
2) as you're aware, it's the squatting position, not skin colour, genre, or anything else that is the point there. Nice of you to bring your own prejudices into play though.
deliberately mining some staccato shit to come across as even more plain-speaking and confrontational than otherwise - compare to the slick, evasive, playful flow of cakes da killa upthread - the latter more 'literary', the former more youtube-viral-icious (and why not?)
the way he says 'fuckin' as he looks at the camera is p sick
on the whole in favour
also gb is definitely a trustworthy voice w/r/t hip-hop, r&b, etc. more so than most people on the board.
did I miss this years hip-hop, R&B audit?
but I have no working knowledge of audits :(
^isn't liquid swords, or a '90s/early '00s top 10 hit played ironically in a club but probably falls foul of the gb approval criteria for this thread on account of being backpackery and may possibly have been pitchfork best new music
I did an instinctive wtf reaction though, which makes me think.
