lol what a retard. If anything he generally has the "whitest" mindset on here in terms of thinking about race and shit, and then he pulls out his version of a politically correct "white rap = cultural appropriation" theory. Fuck outta her with that bull

So by that standard, me, a black dude playing emo-music is also cultural appropriation of white people who wrote "that" sort of music in the mid-west 20-25 years ago.

Cultural appropriation is really a myth since you can't replicate authentic culture, it almost always ends up being something else. You could take an Eskimo doing his cover version of a rap, that shit isn't going to sound the same unless its the same flow, words, beat - and in that case its just an illegitimate rip-off.

Cultural appropriation is about the oppressive race taking claim of the culture produced in response to their oppression

removed from this context, it's meaningless

urban dictionary calls that pussy nectar: Vaginal secretions, emitted by mature woman with dripping pussy, just prior to intercourse; more extreme substance than pussy juice.

Hell Zeitgeist was number 1 in a lot of countries, are you going to use that in order to rationalize that The Smashing Pumpkins were as famous as ever then?
He's had 8 number one albums in a row, that speaks for itself. I don't know how many hits he has because I don't keep up with rap radio. Who cares. Eat shit, you were wrong and won't admit it. Goodwill doesn't sell 100,000 records 8 times

Rap is often about dumb shit. Go and look at the lyrics for the most landmark rap albums. It's all stupid shit. NWA, Snoop Doggy Dogg... 2PAC it's rubbish.
Most music is about stupid shit. Just because the important bits in there aren't things you relate to doesn't mean they are stupid. It might sound funny to you to have a song called FUCK THE POLICE but that's only because you don't live in a community where 1/3 of all men end up in prison at some point in their life. Get some perspective. And don't even pretend like you've listened to enough actual albums of material to have any say in what rap's main themes are.

And look, you can say what you will, but what famous white rappers have there been lately? They're all jokes and seen as such by the rap community. You think any real rap fans respect Iggy Azalea and Maclamore? I'm sorry, but they don't.
Yeah but if Macklemore rapped like Rae Sremmurd you'd say he was a poser racist white boy pretending to be black. You can't have it both ways.

Why is rapping about living on the streets a bad thing, exactly? Because it's not your experience? Newsflash: people write about their lives.

As for Eminem, there's a definite downswing. His album in 2009 sold 7 million copy's worldwide and his last one only sold 3 million... Compared to the 30 million for each release he was netting in the 00's.

As for hit singles, the numbers are wayyyyyyyyy down.

So this idea that he's as famous as ever, simply isn't true... Obviously I was exaggerating for comedic reasons when I compared him to Billy Corgan.
I never said he was as famous as ever. Fact is, someone who has #1 albums is in the front of their field. How fucking hard is this to understand? No music sells like it used to, none of it. You'd have to compare people who sold as much as him back then and how the sell today. I guarantee you Eminem comes out ahead of almost everyone who is still making music in terms of relative album sales.

Obviously you actually believed your own shit and didn't even look it up because you're the most low-information know-it-all I've ever known in my entire life

Say what you will, but RBG was making a mockery of the artform with his rap. I realize he was trying to be funny, and that's fine... It's just not something I wanna spend energy doing.
I don't even know what to say. Anyone can rap. It has been a medium for a certain segment of the population but they don't -own- it. As long as someone isn't pretending to have that same experience there's no reason they can't fucking rap. It's not a mockery. It's art. What the fuck.

And you don't have to rap, I don't give one single fuck. But you are being a racist piece of shit and you don't even realize it.

because you're a bookworm huh

would that be implying that the most lyrical form of music is enjoyed primarily by the illiterate

everyone stop trying to tear down fuzzy. let him exist.

not everyone has the same POV as you. get over it.

at a certain point it has more to do with your own insecurities than anything fuzzy actually says.
