When Men were Men and Chuck D was Pissed
I was watching some videos on tv the other day and I thought to myself “Man, Rap sucks!” I used to love rap back in the day, but it just sucks now.
Question: When did it all go wrong? Who’s to blame? What’s the problem?
Answer: The biggest problem with rap today is one thing, Happy Rappers. That’s why there’s no good rap any more. These guys are like a baseball player after they sign the huge contract. Complacent, full of themselves, soft.
Chuck D unleashed the most ferocious lyrical assault on the clogged up brain cells of the masses
Let me tell ya ’bout a time when it was all very different…… cue the dream sequence music.
Let’s set the wayback machine to 1988; back when rap was “underground” and rappers were pissed off from trying to rise above the oppression of mainstream media. George Bush was President (not W, his daddy) and Hair Metal was the “pop music” du jour. Real men knew that size mattered when it came to your “portable” music system.
