    Yeah, but i could also market it as a 'digital emo' tune.

    That does take much of the post-human and futurist rhetoric away doesn't it? would really like crowl to chip in and explain how rap supplanted rock in the states. truth be told I'm insulated here we're still implacable enemies, the rock music fans live in a mythological world to me. i don't mean like, fuckin ash ra tempel or henry cow boffin rock but like my chemical romance and bullet for my arsecrack.

    That's why i am into chief keef because it's a deconstruction of that alt rock orientation, I'm sure I'm bolloxing it all up though.

    It's weird, rock sensibilities being integrated into rap music should really have my intellectual Paul Gilroy-black-atlantic juices firing like mad. ultimate reclamation of a once proudly black genre through globalised diaspora.

    Yet years upon years of encountering white rock fans has given me a visceral disgust for most of the mainstream rock cannon. otherwise I'm still interested in iranian fuzz or slammin nuggets from Benin and Togo. and as everyone knows I like heavy, dark shit. Why is that? I have no idea.

    I was gonna say lollipop is a 'digital alt rock tune' but digital emo just seems to be more catchy.

    Maybe the battle we have to fight is between digital emoism and digital hardcorism.

    take this as the metaphorical provocation it is intended to be rather than racial/gender essentialism.



    Listen to the singing. it's white isn't it? Listen to the rapping, it's nu metal isn't it? Isn't it?

    "digital emo" succinctly describes so much of the music i wasted my time on in high school and shit my peers r still fixated on. a few are open about it being emo as well like in 'soundclown raps' it's not at all covert/disavowed

    yes. of course. but our guardian experts were always like re grime: it's not the lyrics, it's a depiction of real life! which was absolu-tely irrelevant. there are many death metal songs that describe raping women in excruciatingly painstaking detail but because a black boy says bitch the whole world pounces on him.

    This is actually posthuman.



    Sounds as hood as anything on the M6. Real cyberpunk. More location dependent than microgenre synthwave stuff which I suppose comes into it. Always has done to an extent unless you get the old overriding cultural styles.

    I've always felt that stuff like Peep and even Citgo sounded like Blink 182.

    Pretty sure Lil Wayne is either touring with or co-headlining with Blink 182 soon in the US.
