    Default Rap artists on twitter (who's really behind the account?)

    Okay, since my recent spate of silly threads this is a serious thread for a change. Something I have been pondering since seeing rappers (or any famous people but mostly rappers) being on twitter.

    I figure the younger and smaller scale cats are, but some I just can't imagine using twitter.

    I can imagine RZA or Genius using twitter, but not Ghostface or U-god for instance.

    And Eminem I should imagine has someone behind his account since he is so big.

    It would also be so easy for someone to impersonate someone else in text form, so if a given rapper had an agent who manages their social media it wouldn't be hard for it to seem like it was actually the rapper in question and not the agent.

    Anyone know of which rappers are/aren't really managing their own profiles?

    Aesop Rock manages his own account.

    Kool Keith is quick to draw answering his email regarding business and he posts some very Keith like things from time to time, i feel like he could run his own twitter but not a hundred percent sure.

    it appears as if Slug from Atmosphere manages his own twitter.

    the dudes from Blue Sky Black Death as well.

    i feel like most of the dudes i follow do, cant think of any off the top that scream other wise... because i usually unfollow when its just straight promotion.

    RZA is the only wu member i follow (if i recall correctly) and his timeline is kinda lame i just follow him cause he my fav member lol.

    didnt ghostface have those videos up where he was talking shit on artists like drake and whatnot? im sure if these dudes get bored they could get on twitter like everyone else in the world.

    On a related note does anyone know what the deal is with Eminem's account on genius.com?

    Rumour has it that this is really Eminem himself:

    http://genius.com/artists/Eminem

    Anyone know if it's legit or him just dictating to a full time agent?

    Most of wutangs handles are boring except U-god, and probably because it's him doing it. I remember talking to him on facebook lol. He said he smokes backwoods not swishers.

    i highly doubt thatll ever happen

    Drake just brought Eminem out during his Detroit concert the other week and called him the greatest rapper

    Drake would probably sooner make a love song about him

    that was fake. Hot97 wanted to mess with Drake so they made up a rumor about him saying he can take on Eminem. Drake recently had Em on stage and wants Hot97 to fire Funk Flex. Flex is useless and annoying so I'm with it.

    I miss back in the day when Drake would respond to getting flamed on social media with some sensitive shit and the savages would go in on him even more. Twitters more or less dead compared to 2011-2012

    social media in general is pretty gay imo there's too many retarded people with retarded opinions and the ability to spread them

    Agree with this 100%. I got rid of Facebook and Twitter and don't miss it at all.

    Twitter is full of the most over opinionated fucktards. I think TSA is right it was different a few years ago but now it's feminists, cucks and faggots pushing agendas. Facebook is full of the dumbest people imaginable and baby boomers.

    Social media gives voice to people that should have their tongue cut out.
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.
