GUEST,josepp Blues vs Rap (136* d) RE: Blues vs Rap 01 May 12


Rap IS about drug, guns, prison and hos. That's ALL it's about. Storytelling is NOT rap. "Evidence" by Dave Young is NOT rap. It has real instruments and the words are about the crimes that Africa itself has committed on black people (and written by Leroi Jones). Gil-Scott Heron was NOT rap. From what I understand, he found rap to be an embarrassment and did not want his name associated with it. Today's rappers are pathetic compared to him. Rap does not tell a story. It's teeny-bopper shit for street kids who don't give a fuck about your fucking stories.

Storytelling is NOT RAP!!!! Please do not degrade the art of storytelling with such a shitheaded comparison. PLEASE get a brain.
