You are so right about what real hip hop is. I know the Roots and Common are mad phat because none of the kids at my high school in suburban Kansas have heard of them before. I feel so cool listening to them because it's like I'm better than other people who don't listen to them. One time I had my CD player at school and some kid saw my Mos Def CD and said "isn't that guy having premarital sexual relations with Beyonce" and I was sooooooo mad that kid knew who Mos Def was. I had to throw away the CD after that and that hella-sucks because I really liked it except for the song with Busta Rhymes because he is a sellout for doing a song with Jay-Z who sucks ass because all he talks about is money and women and since I can't relate to his lifestyle I decided he's wack and nobody should like him.
Nelly is wack too. He's definitely not hip hop. I especially hate Nelly because all his songs are catchy and I start to sing along and I actually like them BUT I CAN'T LIKE THOSE SONGS BECAUSE THEY ARE BY NELLY AND HE IS NOT REAL HIP HOP AND THE OTHER KIDS AT SCHOOL LISTEN TO NELLY SO NELLY SUCKS BUT I REALLY REALLY WANT TO SING ALONG TO SHIMMY SHIMMY COCOA PUFF BUT I CAN'T AND I WILL NEVER HAVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, NOT EVEN IF I FIND A GIRL WHO IS BLIND AND DEAF BECAUSE SHE COULD PROBABLY STILL SMELL ME AND NELLY PROBABLY HAS SEXUAL INTERCOURSE ALL THE TIME AND WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO LISTEN TO HIM BRAG ABOUT IT I JUST WANT TO SEE A GIRL NAKED ANY GIRL EVEN AN UGLY ONE IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK????? JUST ONE GIRL NAKED SHE COULD EVEN BE DISFIGURED LIKE WITH ONLY ONE LEG AND THREE NIPPLES OR SOMETHING I DON'T CARE I'M 16 YEARS OLD AND I'LL PROBABLY LIVE WITH MY PARENTS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE HELP ME PLEASE GOD PLEASE.
Also, have you listened to Anticon? They're crazy phat too because nobody has heard of them and they're white so I don't feel so uncomfortable listening to them.
