mrfriendlyfuckinhatestumblaa asked: What do you think when people criticize rap with the same old arguments of people who don't actually take any interest in rap, like "it's all about the bitches and the bling"?

As a wise man once said

I met a critic, I made her shit her draws
She said she thought Hip-Hop was only guns and alcohol
I said “Oh hell naw!” But yet it’s that too
You can’t discrima-hate cause you done read a book or two
What if I looked at you in a microscope, saw all the dirty organisms
Living in your closet, would I stop and would I pause it?

and that’s pretty much it. Yes there are songs about bitches and bling and whatever the fuck else but there’s so much other shit too. You can find hip hop songs about literally anything, you just gotta look around and educate yourself on the subject (like most things) and not just hear a Soulja Boy track on the radio and think you know all there is to know.

Srsly go on the “i hate rap” tag or “rap is crap” or something similar and 99% of the examples given are Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, like they represent the epitome of hip hop lmfao. People are entitled to like and not like whatever they want, but at least give a valid reason for it. “It’s all money and bitches and molly” isn’t a valid reason.

It’s like saying you hate Lost because they were dead all along. smh.

mrfriendlyfuckinhatestumblaa asked: Which mainstream rappers do you find overrated? (both male and female)

I love how this is turning into an “ask me a question every day” thing :D

Definitely Jay-Z. I’m sure people only like him because of Beyonce lmao. He’s got like 15 album and I like about 3. He should have retired after The Black Album like he said he was, everything after that is literal trash. I could rant on about him forever but I don’t want to. Sure he’s got some undoubtable classic tracks but nah. 

Apart from him I would say the likes of Lil Wayne, everything 50 Cent that isn’t Get Rich or Die Tryin’, Nicki Minaj (sidenote Nicki Minaj can be incredible when she wants to but she has so much shit), Rick Ross, Ludacris and fucking Pitbull, but I don’t think many people would say they would go down as some of the greatest ever so I don’t know if they would count as overrated :/
