Trust me, I so wish I lived the required lifestyle to truly relate to rap. But point blank, I didn't, therefore I don't care for it too much. And sure saying it sucks is kinda harsh but it's a thread that mainly has ppl with the same point of view so you should expect that kind of lingo to be a standard.
Dude have you watched/ listened to the MVs/ tracks I posted??? It has nothing to do with thug/ gangsta life, bitches/ hoes/ sex etc. It's about political commentary/ death of a love one/ and just artistic collabs. I know it's not in english but like any great form / genre of music it transcends all cultures/ languages/ sex/ race, what have you.
Go watch the Drunken Tiger MV, it's in korean but the pure artistic flare/ creativity/ musicality to it is so AMAZING. I have yet to see a MV of this high caliber anywhere that's why i keep re-linking it. His grandmother died on 8.45, hence the name "8.45 heaven" and you can feel/ sense his pain in the MV/ emotions he conveyed throughout the "rap". It's pure poetry in modern day format that is all "rap" is. Nuff said. Just so watch it with a open mind, you are gonna be floored. I sure was the 1st time i watched it.
Damn can't post vids on head-fi for some reason, i can't link this enough times tbh. LoL
