Raves are a parallel example of the type of dissonance that occurs for me with regard to rap and hip hop. I still love it, I was overjoyed to hear a little mixed in with the dubstep this past Saturday, but these lyrics...Jesus Christ. I am so tired of the way some rappers continue to speak about women. It's disgusting, and I hope that parents are sending stronger messages to lessen the force of what's being played on the radio.
Chances are she was acting up and I fucked her once, never fuck her again.
She can have a grammy, I still treat her ass like a nominee,
She’s leaving on with that pussy like so one time is fine with me.
-Drake, No Lie-
Y'all been together ten years, you deserve a menage
Specially if you put that BMW in the garage
Specially if you paid a couple payments on her mame crib
Went to her neice's graduation, man, I hate those kids
-Kanye West, Birthday Song-
If she don't wanna fuck I get on my skateboard and I skate past her.
-Lil Wayne, Burn-
She say why you asking questions I say bitch you trynna be funny
Now take your fucking clothes off and let me see your donky kong...
I swear I saw my ho, I swear she waas with my ho
You know I fuck them both, sore pussy and sore throat
-Lil Wayne, No Worries-
Lil Wayne, in particular, focuses on fornication SO much in his songs. It's starting to get obnoxious and is detracting from his albums' entertainment value. Something that I believe solidly validates my disdain is the fact that a majority of nasty mouthed hip hop artists, Lil Wayne and Drake included, have young children (daughters for the aforementioned).
So that's all I'm saying hip hop. I'll still listen to you in my car for 85% of my driving time, but you're disappointing me. Then again, I rarely ever buy music and when I do it's to try out some indie artist I can't hear on the radio, so my opinion doesn't matter. As long as THIRD graders continue to gain such access to rap albums that they know every word to profanity laden Tha Carter IV, you'll be sitting pretty. No lie.
