Whats the guy supposed to do to everyone hating, stop rapping about being a gangster and be a hipster rapper like Mackelmore who raps about being gay?
Im not saying hes not fake or Im just trying to imply that 9/10 gangster rappers are going to be just as fake as he is. They'd all be in jail if they did 1/10th of the shit they say they did. Just look at real rappers like Lil Boosie or BG and what they got locked up for. Boosie got 20 years for his fucking lyrics. There are no real rappers out there these days OGs like Turk who shoot cops are rarities most of these bustas are pussies like Drake albeit not as rich.
Gangster Rap is played out. Its like porn there are no new boundaries to explore everything has been said or done by now you just cannot be original even if you want to. But its popular and not going anywhere. I like money and bitches more than thrift shops though I'd rather listen to gangster rap than some scrub talk about being poor, being self employed I feel it motivates me to keep grinding and get rich.
I remember there was a grammy thread on this site where someone clearly white rich skiier kid was like 'Mackelmore sold out and made songs to appeal to mainstream.... Kendrick was original and showed everyone what it was like growing up in Compton and being around drugs and gangs'. It was the dumbest fucking thing I'd ever heard. I love Kendrick and hate Mackelmore but unfortunately the boring sell out mainstream hipster rapper IS more original rapping about what its like to grow up in Compton is because all every gangster rapper raps about is coming from the hood.
