Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Where does Scarface say that hip-hop is only geared towards blacks? He doesn't imply it either.
He's talking about how the white guys that are the heads of labels are promoting this brand of ignorant rap by certain black rappers, instead of promoting black rappers with actual skill and subject matter. Then they turn around and promote rappers of another race that talk about social issues to brainwash the black audience of thinking "Damn the white rappers are better than the black rappers."
Like how brian 8448 put it in the previous page, an example would be you have guys who are popular now like Trinidad James, 2 Chainz and Future who really don't have a subject matter, just talk about a bunch of bullshit and are highly ignorant...and then you turn around and promote a guy like Macklemore, who talks more about social issues and it makes him look better than he actually he is in comparison to rappers like those guys I named before. Then if you keep constantly repeating that cycle and people start believing, hip-hop becomes whitewashed and a white genre.
He's not saying there shouldn't be white rappers or that there shouldn't be white rap fans. He's talking about the heads of the label and how they promote rappers, especially those that are geared towards the black community.
