"Why do some white rappers get a "pass"?"


  

          

First off, a good rapper is a good rapper - this is not a post about who should or should not be rapping


This is more about the idea that with some rappers who are white do not have their whiteness enter the dialogue.

AKA Invited to the cookout and there are no questions about authenticity.

Like, I've been on a mini Paul Wall kick for a second and I realized that I dont recall any talks of him "appropriating the culture" came up - I'm not saying he's doing anything that should warrant such a talk, but I wonder why he was given a pass but then someone like Iggy or Macklemore was given a hard time

maybe its just down to whos good vs. whos wack. OR maybe its down to just keeping it real. Iggy was trying to be something shes not but someone like Paull or the Beastie Boys were true to who they were.

I think I'm not explaining it well
