I love their style they've got lyrics like their dads but why are they trying to act like their from the ghetto? I mean come on, they ain't drug dealers or killers even the ones that spent part of their childhood in the hood, they didn't have it as bad as their parents did. They've got the lyrical dexterity, can't they rap about something else.

are you black? if not, stop generalizing. It's disgusting when people generalize about other races of people that they're not even a part of. And how do you know if they still don't live in the ghetto and really, what songs have they really spit some hard thuggish material? Yet another stupid thread.

No, I'm not black, but that doesn't make it false. A person doesn't have to be a member of a race to observe the people around him. I live in an area where blacks are the majority, my high school was also largely black, I was making a statement about a good portion of the blacks I see. Don't try to make me look like a criminal just because I'm not a slave to political correctness.

EDIT:
Also, I don't think it's a generalization because I didn't say all black people are like that. I'm well aware that that isn't the case.

This could be said about any rappers kids, I don't even know why you trying to single out the wu kids when none of them have dropped enough material to really judge.

If this really was the case post up some lyrics and highlight their shit, if not shut the fuck up and stop getting ahead of yourself. Just wait for some shit to drop before you start typing shit.

Observing someone isn't the same as knowing them or actually engaging them in a conversation. In this instance, you don't know anything about them other than what you see and you are basing your assumptions on that, applying your own biases to it. It's not about being politically correct, it's about stereotyping people you don't know.

Black people always have crooked lop sided heads in every photo i have seen of one...at least the rappers...and they are always frowning. so i just assume all black rappers have heads that are always cocked to one side and a frown.

why do they always pose like this? its like they see a camera pointed at them and their head wobbles back and to the side and the their smile turns upside down.....

Funny thing about this is that you're accusing me of doing exactly what you're doing: Making a judgement on someone who you don't know anything about. You don't know who I associate with and what I know. Race isn't as big of a factor as you might think.

But here's the thing, I don't even care that much. It wasn't meant as a racist comment and I didn't mean for it to be taken that way. I'm not one of those cats who just likes to piss people off for the fuck of it. People can act however they want to act, it really doesn't matter to me.

No but in hip hop it is supposed to reflect your experiences and your enviroment, if you fabricate a certain lifestyle on records for the sake of entertainment then that makes you a fake, yes rap is entertainment but it was always grounded in reality and acted as a voice for the working class people, if you take that element away from it then it's just shallow pop music.

So that means everybody in a video with bling is rich and the cars you see they are driving are actually theirs-just because its hip hop. There are a lot of broke rappers fronting like they have money so how is that grounded in reality. Who decides what is real a Wu fan, a Dipset fan, a Dre fan, a Lil Jon fan, a Chingy fan?- It's all hip hop-hate it or love it. To be real- what is that anyhow???You can only be real to yourself. To anyone else, its just an opinion. Who I think is real may differ from who you say is real. 50 been shot nine times so that must make him the realest out there because its mentioned so much and that was his experience.

Your talking about videos which anyone with half a brain would know is all a front, I was talking about lyrics.
Also for someone who is closley associated with wu fam you sure don't seem to know much about hip hop, let alone it's history and original purpose.

I agree that despite the content it is still hip hop granted a much weaker version of it anyway.

I certainly do know hip hop enough to know money is the deciding issue. I learned from Run DMC what hip hop is, because thats my original rap family. (RIP Victoria Simmons) Right now, you could not even get my man on a track with out coming up with the ones first. He'll be on anyone's track for the right price. Lyrically he'll put down what he feels, but if the money isn't there, he isn't feeling anything. The family needs to eat first and foremost-there is no other reason. Videos are a sight interpretation of a song-its hand in hand.

And just because you're young and your parents have money doesn't mean you haven't been exposed to drugs or guns.

What people have to understand is that you can't judge an artist by what they write in their lyriocs alll the time, the gangster persona, and image sells records. So just because an artist may say he/she's a killler it dosen't actually mean that in real life.

And just because you're young and your parents have money doesn't mean you haven't been exposed to drugs or guns. I was just wondering why in every pic of a black rapper that they have to look all hard and mean with their head cocked back and tilted to one side.....they dont walk around like that....its when a camera pops in front of then that all of the sudden they stop smiling to look tuff for a pic....now call me racist. because that seems to be your only defense.

this is so asinine, that's like asking why some white rock stars give the middle finger when someone takes a picture of them, who gives a fuck. stop worrying about something so simplistic and start thinking about what said obsession says about your preconceived notions and insecurities. and i still think you're a racist, just because you feel that you're not doesn't mean a thing to me. calling people nigs and asking if all black people's heads are lopsided and that they always do this or that because you've seen pictures of rappers doing it seems rather infantile to me. read a book and grow up.

You are really hilarious, you refute everything with 'why are you upset' as if debates can't occur without someone being angry. And cracka is probably the least offensive racial epithet ever so you can't really compare it with any others.

Gawd
09-30-2006, 06:58 PM
So because cracka is in your mind not really offensive it should be used...nignig to me is seems the least offensive so i guess ill keep using it...thank you.

Cracka is the least offensive when you trace origins.

Nigger- from Necros "dead" or Negro "black" depending on who you ask. Implies spiritual death, having no soul.
Cracka- Firecracker (Contrary to popular belief whipcracker is not its origins), a revolutionary class in England that was known for its in your face attitudes and constant challenging of authority. That's you edbigghead.

As for Young Dirty do you really think he grew up in a mansion? its ODB's son c mon now seriously? ODB didnt pay his child support and they lived in the ghetto...not saying i like his style too much but it still applies.
