Every time someone from Bangtan drops a mixtape or track, like for example Agust D or Change, you have people coming out of the woodworks spewing some ignorant garbage like “American rappers should learn from this!! There’s no chains!! Or half naked women!! Or money!!! Just real feelings!”
Like, do you even know how fucking dumb you sound? The whole fucking basis of hip-hop culture was created out of rebellion and fighting against oppression. Hip-hop was literally created in America by Black Ameicans so no, American rappers don’t need to learn nothing from anyone.
Also, literally what rock have you been living under to say shit like this like??? Chance the Rapper, an independent, CHRISTIAN, rapper, just won 3 Grammys and is using his money to fund schools in Chicago. Kendrick Lamar, literally famously known for rapping about growing up in Compton and police brutality won Grammys the year before. So yeah, socially aware hip hop is alive and well.
It also exposes y'alls anti-Blackness that you’ll just easily believe any and all stereotypes that hip-hop is just “”“dumb black ppl music all about money and disrespecting women”“”. Some of you only listen to idol rappers, and that’s fine. But don’t sit there, completely obvious to American hip-hop and point ya racist fingers
me: rap music doesn’t exist in a vacuum and should be just as criticized for violent misogynoir just as everything else. male rappers need to be held responsible for the systems they perpetuate in their lyrics and shouldn’t be–
a generic rap song with a decent beat: bend over pop that pussy and show me what you worth bitch
A long ass ride, it’s been one year since the bowl-haired kid became known to the public. He was just a kid, even from his walk. Now he has come out with a big shout. When I grab the microphone, I’m the mister.
<b>Tony:</b> Steve and Bucky keep asking me the names of my inventions so now I just give them rapper names<p/><b>Steve:</b> [in the distance] I think the G-Easy is broken!<p/><b>Bucky:</b> use the Jay-Z, Steve<p/></p>
he came into bighit as a rapper- an underground rapper from daegu who only performed for crowds of two and made a couple of cents off of his tracks, which came up to not even be enough to buy ramen.
and when he began training at bighit, he didn’t want to burden his parents either so he paid for everything himself by getting a part time job even though he was a busy trainee/student. sometimes he would have to make the choice between eating that day or not having enough money to pay for the bus fare and being forced to walk two hours to get to where he needed to be. he went to school with wealthy students who would get foreign-made cars for their graduation present and he would have to swallow down his jealousy after seeing them get what they wanted so easily. all of this while fighting with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and compulsion since he was eighteen years old.
yoongi came into bighit thinking that he was going to be in a hip hop group with namjoon and some of the original members of bts, but even though the group concept changed- he still stuck with it because he desperately wanted a chance to be on stage and create his own music. he learned to dance and even acted as a backdancer/mv extra for a little bit despite originally having the intentions of just being a simple rapper and even when he shattered his shoulders from an accident during his part time job as a delivery boy, he still persevered and worked hard to improve himself and prepare for debut.
and the only point where he wanted to truly give up was when he thought that the day of his debut was never going to come. like, this man has been through so many physical/mental difficulties and changes- he literally gripped onto the thought of a chance to be on stage to survive and the only point where he wanted to give up was when he thought that he was never going to get that chance.
I don’t know how to even put this in words and I don’t want to come across as simply using his life story for attention, but yoongi’s life is the ultimate example of hardwork and determination. I have no idea how he was able to handle all of b-free’s demeaning comments so well and I have no idea how people can say that b-free “got it right”.
and just knowing that yoongi still works himself to the bone till this day- working on his music and bringing his equipment wherever he goes ( whether it be during his vacation or on the airplane or in the waiting room) and staying in his studio until the very early morning- and still dealt with battles with his mental health and physical health after his debut just amazes me because he never lets it show or he never lets it take him aback and somehow we still have the audacity to just label him as “lazy” and “coldhearted”.
yoongi truly is a symbol of persistence and dreams and he really is a role model for me. his lyric “though the beginning may be humble, the end will be prosperous” really did become a reality for him and it only came to him because he never gave up despite all what life threw at him. he motivates me to keep on moving forward in my life and I really do hope that all of you guys see and love him for all that he stands for.
THIS JUST IN: Fuck-face Soundcloud rapper revealed as sexist scumbag against female Rick & Morty writers, leaves nation unsurprised
This 5-followers having piece of shit went on a twitter tirade to accuse Rick and Morty writers of giving sexual favors to the creators to get their jobs as well as ruining the entire show. Funnily enough, he only seemed to accuse the female writers. I suppose he knows exactly which parts were written by the men and which were written by the women, then so expertly surmised with his extensive knowledge from driving for Lyft (probably) that it is the women writers that are to blame for whatever shortcomings this new season of Rick and Morty may have had.
Let me remind you that Rickmancing the Stone (302) and Pickle Rick (303) were both written by women writers. I dare you to say those episodes aren’t the fucking shit!
