I can’t believe in 2012 people are still putting down rappers for not being real. No rapper is real. No artist is real. No anything that’s for sale, YES FOR SALE, is real.
IT’S FOR SALE. IT’S TO MAKE A PROFIT. IT’S BEEN EDITED. IT’S BEEN GROOMED. IT’S BEEN MODIFIED TO MANIPULATE YOU INTO DOING SOMETHING. BUY!
In rap we put down other rappers by saying they’re not real. Rick Ross is not real. Drake is not real. And we lift rappers up by saying they are real. Eminem is real. Nas is real. Tyler the Creator is real.
No rapper is real. And why should they be? Have you ever heard a real rapper? There music sounds like shit. It doesn’t even sound like music. It’s not mixed, not mastered, NOT EDITED IN ANYWAY. If you can name a rapper that’s real then that rapper isn’t real.
So then what is “real”? (more…)
