"When Black rappers sound white (A Kyle Thread)"
Tue Oct-06-15 07:23 PM by Hitokiri

  

          

Typically, I don't like such phrasing but are ya'll familiar with this guy Kyle?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knkOOkvaceA

I don't know too much about him. Except that he HAS to be from California from the way he talks. Funny thing is... I don't hate it. I don't know if I like it. But don't hate it.


This should be entertaining.

i really enjoy him. i don't think he sounds white, but he definitely sounds nerdy and that's what works for him in my opinion. he's not out here trying to do what anyone else is doing...at least not right now that sticks out in the front of my mind.

his shit is fun to me, and fun is definitely missing from music these days.


don't wanna fall in love and raining love are my joints:

I think you said they were from Ventura too.
Black folks that talk like surfers.
That shit never ceases to trip me out.

Again, I've largely done away with saying things like a black person "talks white." But I remember thinking that about Easy. I've also been curious about how I sound to people over the phone or whatever. If my race is evident. My girl says it's very evident. lol

That verse off Wanna Be Cool was my introduction to Kyle. And I liked that verse. It was corny, yes. But his whole thing is kinda embracing his corniness and it kinda works.

I'm not saying you or anyone should like this dude. Hell I dunno if I like him, but his music is kinda fun. Check those links PROMO posted and RWQ to my original post and there's another link.
