How rappers should be viewed according to black tumblr
  • Old School/Golden Age rappers (Run-DMC, Eric B & Rakim, Slick Rick, A Tribe Called Quest, etc...): Who's that???
  • Legends and Icons (Jay-Z, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg, etc....): Lazy and/or salty has beens who drink too much respectability politics-flavored kool-aid and have forgotten their roots
  • Mainstream stars (Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Drake, T.I., etc....): Misogynistic assholes who pander too much to whiteness and shouldn't be trusted
  • Non-black rappers (Eminem, Macklemore, Joell Ortiz, Far East Movement, etc...): Culture appropriating criminals who are completely at fault for the downfall of hip hop. With the exceptions of Paul Wall and Riff Raff. Any black person who doesn't completely agree is a race traitor that must be stoned on sight
  • Female rappers (Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, Lil' Kim, Azealia Banks, etc...): Convenient when a point needs to be made, totally irrelevant otherwise. It's even acceptable to throw them under the bus for trivial matters from time to time
  • LGBTQ rappers (Angel Haze, Cakes da Killa, Mykki Blanco, Big Freedia, etc...): Only exist to serve one purpose: Macklemore bashing
  • Socially conscious/Political rappers (Lupe Fiasco, Common, Wale, Mos Def, etc..): Deluded, bootstrap-spewing, ankh-toting uncle toms
  • Alternative/Indie rappers (Hopsin, Childish Gambino, Danny Brown, OFWGTKA, etc..): Sell-outs who disregard their blackness for not making conventional sounding rap music
  • Trap/Ratchet rappers (2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Chief Keef, etc..): Delicate flowers who must be worshiped like holy deities and protected at all costs
