Why I love Mumble rappers

Pass me the Aux i’ll bump Xxxtentation before I blast Kdot and y’all can stay mad. I hate when people (specifically old heads) look at the new age rappers as if they’re the corruption of hip hop…no no and no. I say this cause hip hop aint one fuckin thing and these dummies literally think it is. If you really enjoy the genre called rap and you love music you will recognize the value of the new school, you will recognize the climate. Mumble rappers exist because of “Aux cord” culture and the independent artist movement. We control what we listen to more than ever, radio stations that push records to bleed our ears are non existent and it’s beautiful! We decide what’s hot and what’s not and to break it down even more, the producers (Zaytoven , Metro Boomin, Southside, TM88, etc) decide what pushes the culture forward! We’re the ones that look at soundcloud at 3am in the morning for the chune that reminds us of our ex, “we the ones poppin nigga we the ones” -21 Savage. It is natural for us to pick up on rappers that have melody and have the type of sound we want to listen to. Hip hop was literally established by the urban youth, it was created as a way of “fighting the power” it is a counter-culture much like rock n’ roll was post 1950’s. What are we going to do ? Ignore the fact that a Kodak Black track will get have me more turnt than a Joey Bada$$ record? No, as a consumer of hip hop and a participant in the culture I love mumble rappers. They represent a youthful carefree vibe that will last, the exemplify what hip hop was originally… a big fuck you to mainsteam “appropriate” music. If y’all wanna live in the 90’s and want a fresh 16 then go listen to Pusha T or Kdot that’s fine but for y’all critiques that have this vendetta against Lil Yatchy and his folk y’all can sit your bougie ass down. Y’all missed the point of hip hop and have become the thing you hate…a square and a lame. Here’s an easy metaphor for y’all: go to east side mario’s with friends and you pick out a pizza but 2 of your homies want spaghetti and meat balls, are you gonna freak out on them for disrespecting traditional Italian cuisine? No, cause it all fits under the same umbrella…

Y’all dismissed…

P.S. Joey Bada$$ recent album was fire…better than Kdot’s

Hernandez and the Facebook killer are the same

Hernandez and the Facebook killer are the same

You read that title right and It is indicative of the culture and societal climate we live in. Why are they the same? Steve Stephens and Aaron Hernandez are both murderers and on the surface level they both committed suicide last week. Most would say that’s where it starts and ends but beyond this both killers suffered from mental illness. While the mainstream media casually calls white terrorists (Dylan Roof, James Holmes, Adam Lanza, Dylan Klebold, etc) mental health victims and paints their atrociousness actions as involuntary juxtaposed to the black Stephens and latino Hernandez we see the contrast. The climate we’re in is a very sensitive to the struggles of mental health victims but we ignore minorities that experience it. To keep it all the way simple: They were both living an internal hell! Whether they deserved to die is not the question here (I believe they should have) the real issue here is how they went out. Stephens started this killing because of his break up with his ex-girlfriend but when he released a video explaining why he killed the Godwin (and planned to kill others) he stated that no one listened to him no one wanted to hear him. For a man that was a youth mentor and, ironically enough, behavioral therapist was suffering from the same problem he was paid to cure. Had someone reached out and talked to him about the break up about his trouble and pain an old man with a family in Ohio would still be alive. And that’s the real tragedy here…

Hernandez is another example of this, I haven’t examined the 3 notes he left next to the bible when he hung himself and I don’t care to. All I know is that an NFL superstar was battling demons in his head that spoke too loud and took him to a life of “gang gang gang”, where disrespect meant a shot in the head to a friend, Odin Lloyd. Where the depth of his depression grabbed his neck and hung him at 3am in the morning and declared him dead at 4am, these are battles that the gridiron will never show. These are battles the face will never show. When a mans hear’s he’s going to jail for life and has the stoic face of a yoga instructor mid sunrise number three you have to know there’s a problem. He had accepted his doom. His fate was sealed. While the media was quick to brush off these two as old news, I ask you to look deeper and realize that when we talk about mental health it can grip and hold anyone. From multi millionaire athletes who are not satisfied with money, fame and women that resort to a life that brings pain to a therapist mentor that seemingly has life put together and control of his being to a 20 piece mcnugget eating killer, we now know mental health has no face! Hernandez and Stephens were in cages, physically and mentally and that’s the real story. This cage doesn’t care about who you are how you look or what your status is.

While their actions were beyond evil, it leads me to ask…how many buttons could be pushed before you or me became Hernandez or Stephens?

 

Money isn’t the root of all evil, Attention Is

Money isn’t the root of all evil, Attention Is

If you really think about it I’m 100% right. Yes I’ve written about social media and some of my favorite thinkers have written on it in the past. Most agree that it has provided our generation with more bad than good but lets look deeper into it. I definitely think that most analysis and thinkers ignore the fact that social media is a result of something more of something more sinister: a culture of attention seekers! Especially when it comes to active social media users, I’m talking SJW, Alt-Right, Starbuck sippers, IG hoes, Fitness enthusiasts…guess what tho? WE MAKE IT WORSE! And no this idea of attention and social media being worse than money isn’t a new idea but it has to be restated. We live in a time where resources (money/material) doesn’t matter as much as your clout. Its pathetic and we are the ones to blame, our eye balls are attracted to the ridiculous, the stupid, the dangerous and the wild shit. To illustrate this headasss behavior Imma use two unlikely examples that relate to each other, “Cash me outside” and Social justice warriors.

Danielle Baleli-whatever the fuck her name is, is a perfect example of this…for the most part I believe she is a victim in this whole saga. For y’all living under that same rock Patrick Star is at, Daniella is the cash me outside girl that literally won the meme award for the month of January. She parlayed it into a career as a…”social media celebrity” ? As I write this down I realize how dumb that sounds. But who is to blame for this ratchet child who has been catapulted to doing Kodak Black music videos? You…(and me). We have feed her with the drug called attention. Attention is the drug that everyone seeks from a 6 year old waving to their distracted phonbie parent to a multi-national corporation paying youtube celebs, everyone wants attention. Its so rare might as well call that shit Mew Two or quaaludes (word to DiCaprio). People will forgo money to receive attention and the most messed up thing is…attention leads to money! Danielle charges 35k per apperance…my nigga who is actively paying her 35k? Spoiler alert…A lot of dummies are. But what if we look at the flip side, aren’t there any good people who want this drug? Don’t they want to improve this world by flipping this brick and to build the community (word to Frank Lucas?). Here we find SJW (Social justice warriors).

I won’t go off on this topic because for the most part It has been tackled ad nauseam, but I’ll just quickly lay down some opinions. People (especially on social media) have an alarming trend: virtue signally. What does this mean? It is the act of showing that you are a virtuous person in the eyes of a left leaning liberal audience, google Moshe Kasher or just quickly scroll on twitter. Virtue signaling is an act done by most male feminists, white black lives matter activists and any person who’s out here capping for retweets. People will actually attack opinions and subvert constructive dialogue to prove that they’re more righteous its pathetic, people would rather hide behind the mask of acceptance and attention than to say what they want to say and feel what they wanna feel. These people play a role to be liked, they crave attention to so much that they do something more sinister than Daniella, the actively fake it till they make it! These are the same people quick to “cancel” any celeb because they show a trace of human error, these are the same people that will block you if you tweet something non PC, these are the same people that will call you a dummy because your thoughts don’t align with there’s these are the ultimate attention whores. Future wrote a masterpiece named Mask Off and I wish people followed his advice “Mask on, fuck it mask off” because we see through y’all masks! Attention is their drug of choice, where they speak into an echo chamber for the most attention within a culture of virtue signaling. This is the greatest evil…it is the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

In 2017 attention is the root of all evil, not money.
