Why do you hate rappers?

Posted in Artists, Videos on March 13th, 2009 by Hyphen

I hate them for reasons to numerous to even begin to list, but PackFM, Masta Ace, Sadat X, Poison Pen, Skyzoo, Stimuli, Peter Rosenberg, Iron Solomon, B-Real, and more do a good job giving their opinions.  For me, the biggest problem is that everyone’s a rapper.  Most folks just need to stop.

Thumbs down @ the shot to Lupe though.  I suppose his public persona puts a lot of people off, but seeing as how he raps better than 99% of the MC’s in the game, I’m fine with him classifying himself as an “artist” rather than a “rapper.”  I’d actually agree with that.  Anybody can be a rapper these days.  Few rappers can be artists.  Just my 2 cents.
