10,000 Rappers Can’t ALL Suck…

Let’s be honest with ourselves and admit that democracy just isn’t for everyone. Some folks can’t handle the responsibility of having their own choices. Look at the situation in Iraq. George Bush Jr. thought that the people over there were tired of living under a dictator’s regime so he sent some of his best trained, best equipped colored people and poor white folks to spend time in the desert bringing democracy to those people. Guess what? The Iraqis were actually fond of their dictatorship. Who knew? Similarly, I don’t think that everyone should be allowed to comment on XXL. It’s not about silencing dissent as some of the vain and inane will argue. It’s more about silencing the idiots. The people that say “first” or type in ALL CAPS. Democracy is not for everyone, especially if you dream of being a rapper.

I was listening to NPR the other morning. Get into that shit party people, eventually you are going to want to know what the so-called liberal white people have in store for your ass. They interviewed this dude that started a site called RapSpace.tv. It’s a MySpace for aspiring Hip-Hop rappers and producers. Where as MySpace is primarily for sexual predators and providing the chance for ugly people to hook up (BlackPlanet anyone?), RapSpace is all about… Rapping. People can post videos of their freestyles and they can even rap over sample-free RapSpace tracks. The next Kool G Rap is probably somewhere in his parent’s basement now downloading pr0n and testing his skills on the microphone embedded in his monitor. Hip-Hop is dead. Long live Hip-Hop.

This is what I mean by democracy out of control. Ten thousand rappers can’t be a good thing. As a society we will need some of these wannabe rappers to do other important jobs, like the dude who rips your ticket in half at the movie theater. How about the cashier at Burger King? Someone is going to have to work for the sanitation department also. The garbage isn’t just going to pick itself up. To allow thousands upon thousands of people to pursue their dreams of spitting a fresh sixteen means that all these other jobs will go unfilled until we hire some more immigrants. More immigrants means less spicy shredded beef at Chipotle, because you already know that immigrants love the spicy shredded beef.

This is where democracy fails us. Years ago societies were structured into caste systems and that determined what your life’s occupation would be. I don’t see why we can’t move back into that method now. If someone comes from an impoverished, disenfranchised family they should be allowed to be rappers. While a kid from a two parent household should not be allowed to rhyme. If his parent’s are divorced then he can be a writer if he so chooses, but only if he’s white. You can’t trust the veracity of the writing of Blacks. What have Blacks written of consequence anyhoo? The Hebrew Bible? Yeah, but who reads that?!?

If I had my choice I wouldn’t let anyone join RapSpace.tv unless they were disabled or really poor. No one else has anything good to say inside of rap. I’m tired of hearing how rich people were before they started rapping and I’m tired of hearing about how rich people are because they are rapping. I want to hear a dude with Parkinson’s Syndrome get on the mic. He might stutter and stammer, but by the time his drooling ass finished his verse it would be the realest shit I ever heard. This way we can back to business as usual and leave the Mexicans in Mexico and leave the muslims in the desert with their bullshit. Plus when the troops come home you know there are gonna be wild amount of dudes with their shit blowed the fuck up. We can just let them dudes get a page on RapSpace.tv and keep it moving. It can’t get any worse than this dude here…

    ——————
    Uh, Cuban Link did you know there were no more than 150 people involved in this ‘happy/jubulent’ crowd? The area was called Ferdous Square, it was completely sealed off by the Marines and was directly across from the Palestine Hotel where by chance all the world media was. This was a staged media event, even reported in the LA Times:

    Los Angeles Times scoop (6/3/04) revealed that one of the most enduring images of the war– the toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in a Baghdad square on
    April 9, 2003– was a U.S. Army psychological warfare operation staged to look like a spontaneous Iraqi
    action:

    “As the Iraqi regime was collapsing on April 9, 2003, Marines converged on Firdos Square in central Baghdad, site of an enormous statue of Saddam Hussein. It was a Marine colonel– not joyous Iraqi civilians, as was widely assumed from the TV images — who decided to topple the statue, the Army report said. And it was a quick-thinking Army psychological operations team that made it appear to be a spontaneous Iraqi undertaking.”

    Writing this blog shit for today’s ADHD addled society means writing something worth reading to make you voice your opinion good or bad.

    Only the most obtuse of readers would think that I favor the Iraqi occupation or the idea that immigrants prefer one type of food. That’s designed to make you think past the comment. The gist of this drop is that we don’t need any more rappers. If you have time take the five minutes (or in your case the twenty minutes) and read this drop again.

    I typically don’t like to explain my shit to da dunn da dunts, but since you cool enough to play in the cRap Music Fantasy League I thought I could spend a minute helping you get your mind right.

    I gotta admit, that is fact for Billy and Bol, them boys are afraid of intelligent argument.

    I understand this post was supposed to be a joke, but it’s was just barely amusing. BTW, you argue that with everyone rapping we are gonna lose a vital part of the American workforce, but what do you think these wanna be rappers do when they are not recording their freestyles? They are flipping your burgers and ripping your tickets. Kinda like you and Bol go to work at Kmart when you are not in the basement pretending to be writers. But I agree the internet is ruining hip hop. Bol’s blog is daily proof of that.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    GT Massive? Are you a massive tool? The post is NOT a joke. I really want to see someone with Parkinson’s rapping.

    TPAR,
    You couldn’t see the forest for the trees. You support my tribal argument every single day you come to this website. This is the tribe you want to join. These are the people that you communicate with and share your values with. The same thing happens in Africa, Arabia, Asia and America and it renders lines drawn on a map meaningless. Tribesmen don’t even have to share the same landmass. It’s about values and communities. Are you going to argue that the aggregate values in Arabia are the same as the aggregate values in Europe? If you think they are then you are as dumb as your comments.

    Come back here in several years when you have a truly global comprehension and not just the knee jerk response to internets sarcasm.

  • around and around

    And we see Silly Billy’s ‘global comprehension’ in all it’s true form:

    For most people in Western countries, Africa immediately calls up the word “tribe.” The idea of tribe is ingrained, powerful, and expected. Few readers question a news story describing an African individual as a tribesman or tribeswoman, or the depiction of an African’s motives as tribal. Many Africans themselves use the word “tribe” when speaking or writing in English about community, ethnicity or identity in African states.

    Yet today most scholars who study African states and societies–both African and non-African–agree that the idea of tribe promotes misleading stereotypes. The term “tribe” has no consistent meaning. It carries misleading historical and cultural assumptions. It blocks accurate views of African realities. At best, any interpretation of African events that relies on the idea of tribe contributes no understanding of specific issues in specific countries. At worst, it perpetuates the idea that African identities and conflicts are in some way more “primitive” than those in other parts of the world. Such misunderstanding may lead to disastrously inappropriate policies.

    In this paper we argue that anyone concerned with truth and accuracy should avoid the term “tribe” in characterizing African ethnic groups or cultures. This is not a matter of political correctness. Nor is it an attempt to deny that cultural identities throughout Africa are powerful, significant and sometimes linked to deadly conflicts. It is simply to say that using the term “tribe” does not contribute to understanding these identities or the conflicts sometimes tied to them. There are, moreover, many less loaded and more helpful alternative words to use. Depending on context, people, ethnic group, nationality, community, village, chiefdom, or kin-group might be appropriate. Whatever the term one uses, it is essential to understand that identities in Africa are as diverse, ambiguous, complex, modern, and changing as anywhere else in the world.

    Most scholars already prefer other terms to “tribe.” So, among the media, does the British Broadcasting Corporation. But “tribal” and “African” are still virtually synonyms in most media, among policy-makers and among Western publics.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    ^ Around,
    My word today for you is ‘OBFUSCATE’.

    As I have written repeatedly, stop thinking in the terms of supremacy’s prism. Understand that tribalism applies to EVERYBODY. You and TPAR are part of the tribe that lacks reading comprehension.

    You want to see a REAL intelligent comment? Peep this…

    Yo, I’m the guy who started RapSpace.TV and did the WNYC interview you mentioned. I am amazed that your take is to not only diss the premise of opening up hip hop to the world but to personally diss one of our site stars, Al Boog. No disrespect intended but you really don’t get it bro. Hip hop sales are down 20%. You know why? Cause it has become a bloated, directionless, overly corporate non-artform thanks to the monopolists that you implicity support with your anti-democratic philosophy.

    The only way to “fix” hip hop is bringing it back to where it came from: the people. Using the Web, we’re doing exactly that – allowing anyone with a webcam or mic to share their talent, possibly get discovered and show there’s more to hip hop than the same half dozen cookie cutter “artists” who get more than their fair share of rotation. I guess you’re more in favor of maintaining the monopolies that has turned hip hop into the glossy caricature we know doesn’t reflect the underground.

    And to diss Al Boog is myopic and just plain wrong. Here is a brother (and responsible father) who has churned out dozens of tight tracks on RapSpace using not much more than a webcam and clever imagination with no need to rely on the tired “booty, bling, blunt” formula that doesn’t even work anymore. If anything, you should be giving him props for truly keeping it real. None of his RapSpace videos objectify women, denigrate African-American. Al Boog IS hip hop.

    I invite you to spend more time on RapSpace and get to know our community because true hip hop comes from the people not boardrooms or bored writers.

    This post is all over the place. I understand what you’re trying to keep people reading, but that “thinking beyond the comment”? Like what am I supposed to think beyond about mexicans liking chipotle? How about making people think beyond by getting off of Bols sack and going backto the BXS that started here and wrote thought provoking and intelligent drops, and just ethered fruitflies instead of deleting comments. You just stay on this shock bloggin bullshit, I mean you do say something, but in a way more immature, vapid, style that is uninspiring. I liked yourold drops better homie.

    Anyway, I digress, the last fuckin thing we need is more rappers, everyone already thinks they’re a rapper or part of the rappers crew from the way they dickride and believe everything they say. Half the MCs in the game are str8 trash anyway. What we really need is 10K Joell Ortizes or a couple more Immortal Techniques or Phontes or MadChilds. If this myspace of rap shit can bring one out of those 10K, so be it. Im sure there are some nice MCs on there, but now it has nothing to do with being good, I mean shit, T.I. says Jim Jones deserves to be higher than 10th because of his “Swag and Street Cred” man GTFOH. *SMH*

  • http://Rapspace.tv Mage

    Miss Sunday,

    First things first: that Al Boog track is sick. If your opinion on good hip-hop is representative of XXL’s, then I now regret even less not picking up a copy of the magazine in years. Of course, it’s difficult to tell which of your opinions/rantings/written diarrhea were jokes and which weren’t, because in your response to the comments you seem to switch back and forth at whim. So hopefully you were joking on posting the video, but I get the impression otherwise. Again, this prompts me to call your capacity for artistic appreciation into question. Any idiot can get on her keyboard and purposely ruffle feathers; the few-and-far-between admirable writers with something to say, however, are those who use their talent with words to go beyond cheap parlor tricks in order to garner a reaction. In short: you sound like an idiot yourself dissing such evident talent.

    The CEO of Rapspace’s comment (the “one” intelligent one you picked out) was right on the money. Just because someone isn’t gracing the cover of your recycled rag while wearing a bulletproof vest and a ghetto grimace is absolutely no reason to discredit them. Do you have any idea what hip-hop is about? From your worthless diatribe, one would be led to think not. Do you listen to the words? Do you appreciate for a second that some people love the artform so much that they produce their particular expressions using any means available to them? The fact that some don’t work well within the bastardizing mechanism that cranks out models who rap about nothing just goes to show that there IS an uncorruptible element to hip-hop.

    Who gives a fuck how or where someone grew up? As long as they’re being real with what they say, than it doesn’t matter. Sure, a rich white kid rapping about what a thug he is and how he flips rocks and pops gats is a fucking joke. But a rich white kid—or black kid, or Indian kid, or Mexican kid—who verbalizes the creativity inside of him or herself in a way that is genuine is every bit as valid an artist, in my opinion, as a poor thug with Parkinson’s or a third-rate columnist espousing hollow semantics.

    As far as Rapspace goes: yes, there are a lot of complete dipshits on the site. A lot of people no doubt ignorant enough to get their opinions from you, as a matter of fact. Al Boog isn’t one of them. The dude is a solid motherfucker with deep roots to hip-hop who knows what the love is. Maybe you should put down the crack pipe and pick up a joint instead, then go back and check his shit out. While your at it, check other peoples’ shit out and evaluate for yourself, using the brain that perhaps unwisely I am convinced is in your possession, who is good and who isn’t. But don’t assume that because it’s on a Website that it’s all bad. And feel free to drop some stylings of your own. Show respect, and the community will welcome you. Remain a shit-talking surface dweller with delusions of superiority and an overestimation of your competence, however, and you will miss the solidarity that the real heads on Rapspace.tv hold. And that’s the true value of the community right there.

    Hip-hop always needs and welcomes more rappers. Just stop paying attention to the ones who suck, who grunt and groan through gilded grills while brandishing rented glocks.
    There’s plenty of dope underground talent, and some of them have chosen to make their music on, and available through, Rapspace.

    TPAR,
    Get it through your head. You LOSE. Ha, better still, get a RapSpace page.

  • http://xxlmag.com Billy X. Sunday

    Dayum! I just caught a bad one from one of the weedcarriers to the weedcarriers wigbrusher from RapSpace.

    It might be the greatest comment ever on XXL. I will hold tight for the moderator to clear it through.

    I’m proud that a drop like this one could invoke such a response. Hip-Hop isn’t dead. It just lives on RapSpace and it sucks now.

    For most people in Western countries, Africa immediately calls up the word “tribe.” The idea of tribe is ingrained, powerful, and expected. Few readers question a news story describing an African individual as a tribesman or tribeswoman, or the depiction of an African’s motives as tribal. Many Africans themselves use the word “tribe” when speaking or writing in English about community, ethnicity or identity in African states.

    Yet today most scholars who study African states and societies–both African and non-African–agree that the idea of tribe promotes misleading stereotypes. The term “tribe” has no consistent meaning. It carries misleading historical and cultural assumptions. It blocks accurate views of African realities. At best, any interpretation of African events that relies on the idea of tribe contributes no understanding of specific issues in specific countries. At worst, it perpetuates the idea that African identities and conflicts are in some way more “primitive” than those in other parts of the world. Such misunderstanding may lead to disastrously inappropriate policies.

    In this paper we argue that anyone concerned with truth and accuracy should avoid the term “tribe” in characterizing African ethnic groups or cultures. This is not a matter of political correctness. Nor is it an attempt to deny that cultural identities throughout Africa are powerful, significant and sometimes linked to deadly conflicts. It is simply to say that using the term “tribe” does not contribute to understanding these identities or the conflicts sometimes tied to them. There are, moreover, many less loaded and more helpful alternative words to use. Depending on context, people, ethnic group, nationality, community, village, chiefdom, or kin-group might be appropriate. Whatever the term one uses, it is essential to understand that identities in Africa are as diverse, ambiguous, complex, modern, and changing as anywhere else in the world.

    Most scholars already prefer other terms to “tribe.” So, among the media, does the British Broadcasting Corporation. But “tribal” and “African” are still virtually synonyms in most media, among policy-makers and among Western publics.

    I think before you start running off at the mouth you should do better research because you’re obviously not good at doing that.You sound like your one of those people who like to think they know what they’re talking about..kind of sad if you ask me.Yes we do have a few people who come on the site with bullshit but it’s also people on the site who do their thing.What trips me out is you picked one of the best people to come at.AL BOOG is one of those cats who keeps REAL hip-hop pumping on the site,if you checked him out properly you would know that.Don’t blame RAPSPACE for hip-hop being “dead” because it’s cat’s like BOOG,MMG,myself & a lot of others who put it down for people who love REAL hip-hop as much as we do.It’s more than just a bunch of dudes rappin’ about how hard they are,how much money they have(even though we get people like that on the site)& all that other bullshit,it’s for our love of hip-hop weather you think it’s good or not.You’re just a critic to me who just tries to find something or someone to talk about,that’s your job.I’m not mad at you because it’s people like you who give the real hip-hoppers on the site a reason to be 100 times more motivated to keep doing what we’re doing to you feel me?So… from the bottom of my heart I wanna thank you for that,we appreciate the love.

    @BXS
    I dont wanna hafta give you topics, I never said this was a bad topic. I said the way you’ve started to approach your writing and your style has switched up since your earlier drops. Instead of really approaching the topic in a way thats inspiring to the reader and thought provoking you slide through the topic lacing it with subliminals that take away from the actual topic of the drop itself. These past couple weeks, I come in here and read the drop and Im like, ok.. and move on. I understand what your opinion is, but the writing dosent motivate me to even respond, because the drop itself dosent really make me think INTO the issue, it just informs me of it. I didnt say it was for dollas, IMO its to subliminaly offend people, hence making them trow out some argument because they’re mad and makes the comments blow up goin back and forth. I know for the most part you use this style over at DP, a more fun laidback style. But when you first came in you were focused on giving us real informative, discussable, debateable writing that every damn drop I was like, wait a min, I got somethin to say. Im not trying to be generic, but like I said, its not the topics its the style, kna mean? I mean, shit, do you, thats just my opinion.

  • http://rapsace.tv BIG-C

    HAHAHA — weedcarrier haah?? U mad funny fam.. It seems as if you’re simply provoking or asking for those type of responses as u’re proud that your blog can get such feedback..To be honest I can’t see what was your point? or was it simply to offend? Why the attack on Rapspace period (BOOG) — A mean — write about some shit thats meaningful yow and as mentioned b4 fuck ya’ll!!

    Don’t be mad y’all. This is a hater in its most raw form. Let’s understand that they are needed. They are a motivational tool. Billy Sunday is a no talent brotha, he mad, his dream has not been realized. Like I said don’t be mad. This brotha trying to make that paycheck just like anybody else. And he has a right to his dumbass opinion.
    Rapspace.TV is home to hiphop’s seed. People that know why its so coveted and why it is so necessary. An outlet to the thought, dreams, beliefs, and everyday human trials and tribs’. And yes we have hella fun too. Al Boog in particular is a legend. He in my opinion took Rapspace.TV to a level of realness that all members felt, he reminded them of what it is really about.To you lil’ billy, from one writer to another, the most important rule of journalism,DO YOUR MOTHERFUCKING HOMEWORK, YOU LOUDMOUTHED CRACKHEAD.
    Would someone please light his pipe so he can sit the fuck down and chill. Peace

    yo. that Parkinsons shit was uncool kid! my mom has parkinsons and that is not an area you should fuk wit.
    i can understand that you are trying to make a point about your perception of rapspace, but you took that shit too far…..your people got my email now…send me your defense…i am all ears!

    you never know who you are going to offend. My dad being the prez of the parkinsons foundation, but me being a long time supporter of XXL and its creative edge…its was not worth it cuz.

    i have been in the game a long time, and in my opinion making the stupid ass comments you made just further exemplify how good publications continue to employ wack-ass, jaded morons, who think they are hard and have to keep their fake persona up, when we all know you go back to your tiny ass apt and your piece of shit car, to fuck your ugly ass bitch…don’t take your shit out on ass playa just because you have never achieved a single goal in your life…

    RAPSPACE.TV is in the building!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://xxl.mag.com Shelx

    My initial comment did not pass the moderator and I do understand, I was a bit spasdic.
    I just want to lend my support for a fellow member of Rapspace.TV, Al Boog.
    He received unfair verbal abuse from you Billy. As a journalist/writer, I feel that you did not do your homework. If you really had done it with an open,fair mind, you would know that Rapspace.TV is a necessary outlet for all the unsung talent. This site inspires those who have dreams that they may feel were deferred. The thing about Rapspace.TV is that even if one never makes it in the music industry, they can still have an international fan base and sometimes that is just as good. And speaking of fan bases, some members in general, and Al Boog in particular has one as large and culturally diverse as the planet itself. I just ask you Mr. Sunday,XXl, to really take time to check out the site. MMG is a brotha who has given life to what some think is dead, real Hip-Hop. Performers like Al Boog, Oddman, Lencuse, Big C, Farrah Burns, Queen Ms. V, Mage, LadyBlue tha truth, and a host of others brings us back to the roots of Hip-Hop. Back to Spoonie G, Rakim, Chuck D, Cold Krush Brothers,etc. If you are a real Hip-Hop head you’ll know what I’m talking about.
    Fair and thorough research and reviews is what is needed. This bashing, as you see from the Rapspace.TV fam response, will not be tolerated and is simply unwarranted. Uplift my brotha, for there is more than enough destruction. Peace

  • http://rapspace.tv 1 T.Y.M.E

    you of all people should understand what rapspace is all about. its not only about hip-hop, but music as a whole used as a medium of bringing people together. what we have here is simply a case of journalism gone wrong because it seems you did little or no research before coming at one of the sites best rappers. granted there are a few “wack” mc’s but hey! u could easily say that about myspace which my good friend would be an exercise in futility.
    so i suggest you give rapspace.tv a good look before posting ignorant and bias blogs based on hear say or your own personal yet flawed opinions)

  • Oddman

    Hmm…I would expect this type of Journalism from the same magazine that is all on G-unit’s nut sack…This was a classic example of how folk should rap…He had slick punchlines, mic presence, and transitioned smoothly. Boog is actually pretty good. I guess he’s not talking about enough bling or drug dealing for you though. Your opinion is worth about a grain of salt. What next? Are you gonna tell me that “Food and Liquor” was a trash album because Lupe is Muslim and he doesn’t have any street cred. This is simpleton logic there.

    Just smile and nod RapSpace.tv fam! You can’t really blame buddy… He don’t understand music in the sense to listen to what’s being said. He was probably looking at Boog’s vid on mute comparing it to a professionaly produced multi-million dollar budget video. Also, we don’t really even have to speak up… we know how it goes down at RapSpace… this cat don’t know who all is up there… wait til there is a RapSpace member featured in XXL for how tight he is… buddy won’t have a thing to say. Much love to MY RapSpace FAMILY!! Stay up… be blessed….

    that was some bullshit writing right there.are you pissed off with hip hop or just the world?
    one bit,out of many, that pissed me off was the “oh living in parents basement” type shit.boring.i own my own property,run a business and in my spare time,which isn’t alot, make beats,which i post into a COMMUNITY of online of hip hop loving people,around the WORLD,to check out and give me feedback,which in turn will be make me a better beat maker,you know trying to go in a POSITIVE DIRECTION.same as everyone else on rapspace.tv,trying to improve and work out how to progress.
    i brought a copy of xxl once a fews years back,thought it was shit then, seems it still is.
    i’m a HIP HOP CONNECTION man to the fullest.

    as for dissing al boog,you don’t know hip hop if you diss boog.the man is hip hop.if you would of posted any other track from al boog you know people who read your wack page would of thought he is the dope and can hold his own against anyone the “RAP GAME” of today XXL seems to crave.
