Rap "music" is nothing more than the
ranting, whining, bragging, and threatening,
of a bunch of savages from some slum of a
neighborhood (South Bronx, Oakland,
Compton, et al.). Their lyrics consist of
illiterate, unintelligible garbage that many
normal people have trouble comprehending.
Their subject matter consists of how much
their house, the precious metals that are
embedded in their teeth, the precious metals
that are draped around their necks, their
cars, and the crap that they add to their cars,
are all worth (they actually think that we
care!), how much they despise the police, or
anything else that reminds them of enforced
civility,
how much money they made selling illegal
drugs (and blaming the CIA for introducing
them), bitching about the poor conditions in
their neighborhoods that they, and their
"homies", have created, how much they
enjoy drinking alcohol, and doing drugs, to
excess, how much they like engaging in
promiscuous sexual activity (after all,
worrying about consequences is for whitey,
and for Uncle Toms, you know), and how
much they enjoy killing people over stupid,
and insignificant reasons (such as over a
color, or over an accidental bump), or over no
reason at all. No rap "song" is complete
without the use of that butchery of the
English language known as "Ebonics", a
litany of curse words thrown in,and some
"shout-outs" to their illiterate criminal friends
back at home. And, role-playing is also an
integral part of (c)rap music. A (c)rapper has
to call himself a thug, gang member
("gangsta"), pimp, drug dealer, killer,or some
other scum of the earth (they don't have to
actually be any one of them, since their job is
only to glorify the same), in order to cement a
specter of credibility in the eyes of his
fanbase, and to legitimize those roles to the
same audience, so as to make legitimate,
honest work seem like a fool's errand.
As for their rap videos, it's hard to say if they
are as bad as the music, or worse. What a
typical rap video consists of is some
(c)rapper dressed in oversized brand-name
clothing (such as F.U.B.U.: Farmers Usually
Beat Us, or some other overpriced piece of
crap made in some Red Chinese sweatshop),
waving his hands and arms in a manner
suggesting the presence of a mental
disability (his "crew" doing the same),
displaying stupid-looking hand signals, and
cavorting with at least half a dozen
scantily-clad women in such a manner so as
to have the entire video resemble a soft-porn
flick. The real purpose of having said women
around is to distract the viewer from the
talentless drivel leaking out of the (c)rapper's
mouth (a time-tested industry secret). The
scenery can be of a bunch of luxury vehicles
with rims made of gold, silver, or platinum
(remember, they think that we actually care),
a house party, a prison (usually in raps about
their toughness),a slum, or some strip club.
All of the obnoxiousness that one hears from
a typical (c)rap recording is displayed for all
to see in these "music" videos. Exactly what
is so enlightening about the sight of an
oversexed bum, pressing himself against a
woman who dresses as a prostitute, or of
some freak with long hair, and a
room-temperature IQ, ranting some
incomprehensible gibberish, while waving a
gun in one hand, and a bottle of liquor in
another? Maybe it's the realization of how far
we have fallen as a culture.
Go ahead, call me a racist, since you can say
nothing else in defense of rap filth. You can
beat me over the head over how they're just
reporting conditions in the ghetto as they are,
how they're just storytellers,and so on. It's
all dreck. The (c)rappers are not merely
telling a story, they are glorifying a dead-end,
and corrupt lifestyle, and encouraging their
impressionable listeners to embrace the
same. They tell their listeners that being a
law-abiding citizen is bad, but being a
brainless, sadistic animal is good.

First is was Oprah, then Kanye, now 50 Cent is picking with Lil Wayne - what the hell is wrong with black artists in the music industry? They put us to shame, you don't see white artist "beefing." I am so sick of him and his antics.

So, according to the article - 50 Cent is basically a bully? He get's on my nerve - just like the typical black who hates to see another black succeed. Instead of him reaching out and helping LiL Wayne - he is trying to pick a fight with him.

So what? Just because, 50 Cent has sold more albums than Lil Wayne doesn't make him "better." Black people are the only ones enjoy fighting with each over silly thing - as long as they both work hard to suceed, it shouldn't matter. How can we bash whites for racism and jealousy towards black, when we do the same exact thing towards each other? I am starting to believe that Blacks are the biggest racist against each other - we don't stand a chance with each other.

50cent is a dead beat. He picks fight with every other rapper. That man is only there to start drama. I agree with Anna 50cent is a monkey look bully. He's a new student who go around the yard picking on everyone else. He will meet his match.
