    I know somewhere in your mind you have taken a entire culture and found definition but somehow your box and labels yet to define much. Not all Rap artist wear gold chains and flash money and if they did have you even tried to understand the meaning behind iticon_rolleyes.gif
    Granted, I dont know much about rap culture myself but i'm not so naive to reduce what it is to those who find meaning in it. Please dont bait me in your constant ramblings of uneducated rhetoric.icon_rolleyes.gif

    UK Hip Hop's a lot less blingy and more self-deprecating. It's not a parody; it's just not bullshitting. I've posted the lyrics and you might not follow some cultural references, but...



    Who's a loveable rogue known to compose colourful prose?
    I'm on the road 'til my foot prints cover the globe
    I speak low with a lump in my throat, and a lung full a smoke
    Bunnin' dope in my humble abode, it's bohemia
    Sepia tone memorabilia, soak up the media
    Daytime TV's gettin' kinda tedious
    Trapped with the social deviants
    In the confines of my immediate
    future is fruitless
    I'm through duckin' shooters
    Dust so thick it dates back to the Tudors
    Livin' in student digs on tins of tuna
    Who spent the rent down the boozer?
    We sip beers and split hairs over current-affairs
    Any unwelcome guests get chucked down the stairs
    The place where I pedal my wares
    All the fun of the fair
    B-boys hold down the square, it goes

    [Verse 2]
    Call me the counterfeit Big Lebowski, the part-time alchy
    scramblin' around for his house key
    Knee deep in debris sippin' on PG Tips like a chimpanzee
    I'm the one-man jamboree, I won't ram out ya jam for free
    I perform for a standard fee cos I'm freezin' cold
    sleepin' with no central heatin'
    I can even see mould growin' on the ceilin'
    from my neighbours pipes that keep leakin'
    In need of some herbal healin', I search and rummage
    Eyes light up like rubies in a world of rubbish
    Lookin' bummy like Wurzel Gummage, drunk and undernourished
    Run ya gums and get rushed by the scrummage
    The man with the dish-pan hands
    Big band bustin' up ya tin pan jams

    [Verse 3]
    Its bohemia
    All we do is wash up and bill up
    and fill up our cups with the cheap stuff
    puffin' on punk free tree trunks
    cuttin' up breezeblocks
    bonding with b-boys who need detox
    yeah the seeds pop
    I get paranoid and wonder whether the neighbours ever eavesdrop
    Livin' in the flat that time forgot
    where evrybody has a vice but we tryin' to stop
    or maybe not
    jottin by the light of lamps
    I'm boxed in with the moths and the rising damp
    cramped coz of all the clutter
    crumbs in the butter
    theres a better side of life im tryin' to disover
    theres another day with fine and rhyming skills
    'til I bop to the shop for a pint of milk
    its time to build and pay the bills
    not to mention the rent
    right now thats what I represent yow

    ....
    actually the headline makes total sense and is exactly appropriate,
    i didnt write ALL rappers arent honest with themselves...rather if only ALL of them were this honest.

    you see the difference? but i do find it amusing how you just instantly jumped to to defensive on this, esp on a topic where you admit you are no expert.

    in fact, if you ask me
    Hillie They are honest about the wrld as they see and live it. It's a reflection of they wrld thru their eyes.

    is the only naive generalization here, as it is untrue for the vast majority, esp the mainstream

    wrg, considering art in any form is a vision or depiction of life in their eyes as an artist. Duh

    Read what u wrote again. It reads "if only all rappers were this honest with themselves" which implies that all of those excpet the one you posted are not.

    that's a really subjective & incomplete definition of art...and definitely not true to all art forms.

    art
    /ärt/
    Noun
    - The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture,...: "the art of the Renaissance"
    -Works produced by such skill and imagination.

    nothing about honesty (in fact imagination is the opposite) and nothing about reflection of life. so to say that art is exclusively that, is faulty. duh

    regarding the title, my intention was not to make that implication.. and i think you are reading into the title too literally...why? i do not know, but i suspect you feel defensive because you feel in some way that the rap culture is indicative to you, because of your ethnicity. well let me be the first to tell you that is not the case. As i said before, its a parody...lighten up.

    the title is accurate...not all rappers are honest with themselves...and i cant believe someone would argue the contrary.

    Stop the bickering. It's sad and pathetic.
    Let's listen to more honest hip hop.

    Summary - "being a kid was hard but now I'm well adjusted - hooray!"


    Summary - "I wish I could making a living from rap music, but no, I still need to juggle my 9-5 with my music"


    Summary - "all beautiful places are prone to natural disaster but being swallowed by the earth in manilla beats a slow death in the midwest"
