    Dude, you have a very high opinion of your own opinion. That is not necessarily a good thing.

    Disclaimer: I know next to nothing about hip hop, and I haven't made an effort to listen to any of it since Public Enemy was at their height. I am just observing a trend.

    Truth be told the second definition I gave is the pro-dominant one since more kids that were rocking fitted caps and baggy jeans are wearing checkered shirts, skinny jeans, and those retarded fluffy hats.

    Looking/acting gangsta is being taken over by hipsters/scene kids since more and more new age screamo/emo bands are collaborating with main stream rappers. Now I guess looking like a pseudo-sophisticated whatever the **** is in. The only thing that hasn't changed is that their still all obnoxious and retarded.

    Ex. 1 (Not Gangtsa in the slightest)
    YouTube- Framing Hanley - Lollipop

    Ex. 2
    YouTube- Estelle - American Boy [Feat. Kanye West] [Video]

    The first time I tried to post this, it brought the database to its knees. Bitches tryna test my gangsta and all that.

    "Yo, this gangsta loses his cheeba out his jeans, an' he thinks somebody snatched it, so he tries to cap my holmes wit a 9 and miss all 10 rounds. Killed two girls in tha' playground, though - that nigga be gang-sta as ****, yo."

    or

    Gangsta: an adjective used to describe something favorable in the context of urban culture.

    Both?
    The former, although if it's not the latter as well, why the **** would you bother to post it?


    (source)

    I don't seek out stuff that I don't like, so why would I want to be exposed to stuff other people don't like? This isn't rocket science.

    I wasn't talking about you specifically, given that I figured you were posting stuff that you actually do enjoy. That Sinatra impersonator was not exactly the crème de la crème, and the Afrika Bambaataa hurt to listen to. Do the latter get a pass for being trailblazers? Maybe, but not into my heavy rotation. Anyways, I realize I opened the door to gangsta deconstruction when I posted Compton's Most Wanted, but...


    Anyways, back on topic.

    Is: (and watch the video, for ****'s sakes)

    Is not:
    YouTube- Outkast Ft. Janelle Monae- Call the law

    On the bubble:

    LOL! People posted whatever they wanted in the rock and roll thread, and no one complained about anything. Why all the static on this thread? The threads are a solicitation of OPINION. Yes, I am screwing around a little, but so what? Who cares if I'd rather listen to Rock Box than P.I.M.P.?

    At the end of the day, what turns me off about Gangsta Rap is that it has a diminished sense of humor. Like many folks on this thread.

    Gangsta Rap turns me off because it has no sense of humor. Like IIF and jnp :P

    If chalking all this whining up to teen gangst on the part of some.

    I was asking him if he meant me, and if so what his definition of 'shitty' was.

    Why am I any more of an ego trip than Russ for unilaterally declaring other peoples choices 'shitty'?

    Disclaimer: I know next to nothing about hip hop,
    Shitposting in Advanced Rappling is a bannable offense.

    and I haven't made an effort to listen to any of it since Public Enemy was at their height.
    Same. That was my point.

    I am just observing a trend.
    Are you looking in the mirror when you observe it, 'cause it cuts both ways.

    Because that's what the people who were posting it were implying about said music. Either that, or we actually have Riff Raff*, Akon and Christian Side Hug** fans in the house. I know which one I'm choosing to believe.

    I have a lot of tolerance for people enjoying music I don't. I have very little tolerance for people who imply that not enjoying some arbitrary subset of music is somehow meritorious, rather than a lost chance for pleasure.



    * Not the local AC/DC cover band, who are, by all reports, quite competent

    ** I did briefly entertain the thought of posting this video very early on.

    As I said, I didn't think you meant the (non joke) vids I posted. Not Gangsta, but not crap either.

    PM me about that other thing.
