i finally come back to this thread and see a butthurtathon started.
maybe i should have qualified my post a bit more.
the first video with the mashup, i don't know if that's gangsta or not, but it looks like it to me, so i wasn't being 100% shitassed when i posted it.
the christian side hug video, i was hoping to see people call it out for what it was. a minstrel show. when middle class and up white kids act like "black gangstas" it's offensive and insulting. all they lack is the black face to go with it.

Acid The Great: I dunno, man. I like Jeezy, but White just isn't doing it for me.
IIF: You remind me of that radio station in GTA: San Andreas with a playlist of songs that were later sampled by rappers. Entertaining and educational.
1) What you're describing is not a minstrel show*** (EDIT: Never mind this - see footnote) - it's much closer to blackface.
2) They weren't acting like gangstas. We've already been over the distinction between hip-hop and gangsta.
Is. Is as ****.

The minstrel show, or minstrelsy, was an American entertainment consisting of comic skits, variety acts, dancing, and music, performed by white people in blackface or, especially after the Civil War, black people in blackface. Blackface branched off from the minstrel show.

So, of course I enjoyed some of the ghetto boys early stuff.
