    Yeah I spotted that. Good point. Maybe I should have tried to revive that thread instead. Didn't droid say Spartas not doing anything mungo jerry didn't do first?

    maybe explains why keef can appeal to non-mumble rap fans while displaying a lot of mumble rap qualities. he's not impish.

    Can’t believe Barty accused you of doing a Crowley’s lunch.

    Its not even so much the bratty "get out of my room" attitude of it that has me shaking my head its that aggravating metal dickhead smugness that at its core, it thinks it has such sophisticated refined tastes because it listenes to the kind of for a lack of a better term entry level Kerrang/metal hammer type of band that makes 2nd billing at Sonisphere over R&B (its always R&B for some reason) either that or its the soundtrack to one of them bleak provincial town pub raves set up by the olders where they get all the under teens and under 20s in together cause they dont want them out there breaking into peoples yards or shooting up gear and that..

    Awkward lipsin to P.O.D.s "Alive" and that personally ive always sort of envied all them indie rock white lads who in the 2000s had the places where they looked for music curtailed to such a fine degree that they were able to be willfully ignorant of this stuff until some billboard article would be shared about how Slipknot has the number 1 album in the United States at which they all respond with the cry of "people still listen to that stuff?? how embarassing" and then go back to listening to fuck knows !!!, Clap your hands say yeah? People dont like to admit it but Peaches was hot for a minute imagine if she got a reapprasial now

    Default Young Thug- Big Racks



    The first drowsy, ratcheting turns of a diabolical carousel. The ride of the reaper. The fairground chattering of lost souls.

    Music that sounds like a child’s nightmare. Goosebumps. “Monsters”. “Slime” (Thug is able to transform his voice into audio slime with some of those ad libs)

    Hallucinatory and delusional. Freddy Kruger crimson.

    “I am the goat” Baphomet.

    The synth sounds like the trumpet in Rosemary's Baby.

    “Bible scriptures on my chest and shit”.

    and you know what SURE you can say alot the reason it seems everybody seems to gravitate to this kind of blocky tacky shit is because the world is such a bleak place its like people cant handle nihilism anymore so they only want to deal with the pseudo-variant of it thats why an old My Chemical Romance album got back in the charts , its why the current hot 17 year old musician that apprently "zoomers" (hate that word) and 30-35 year old musos are falling for her, trying to find some desperate way to link this stuff back to Alien Sex Fiend when the reality is them lot dont care about any of that stuff and the frame of refference you should be more reachin for Marilyn Manson and fuck i dunno AFI and whatever

    The Insane Clown Posse and Juggalos went from being dead obvious whipping boys to now all of a sudden being championed as like the last "real" subculture cause theyre on the FBI wanted list and they all believe in that base level egalatarian idea of them being a family woop woop n all that theyre out there at protests doing the thing that alot of chest beating arse eating socialists on twitter say we should be doing now all of a sudden we need to allign ourselves with them cause theyre brothers in praxis or some fart like that.

    Default 21 Savage- Rap Saved Me



    The instrumental creeps like a giant, silhouetted arachnid through a swamp in the dead of night. Its emaciated, brittle legs straining as it wades through clotting bog and marsh.

    Metro's Future-voiced tag sounds emotionally aching and wounded. The agony of a fleeting apparition.

    I actually tend to find 21 Savage himself a bit childish and embarrassing. A young Barty in his self-proclaimed cool club.

    But then comes Offset like a frilly-sleeved musketeer ready to rescue us with his flicking and swishing verbal fencing. A whack-a-mole flow ducking and diving; atomised, agile and angular.

    The way his Auto-Tune tremolo on the words “gone, gone, gone” resembles the stumbling string sample in the background is deliciously transhuman. “Life is the matrix” after all.

    Offset has an uncanny ability to inject his lyrics with a mythological grandeur. “You keep the fire, but you aim at the moon, I get the fire and I aim at your noon” is Promethean. “We the wave and we big like typhoon” like Poseidon. “They biting my drip like a sabre” pantheistic. “Who is my neighbour?” biblical. “I live on the island I’m sacred”, a modern day Orpheus.

    Quavo’s buildup is similarly a thing of legend. Mummified chants from the pyramids. A hymn from a long-dead civilisation. “Murmurs from a martian crypt” as rap pundit Sadman Barty put it.

    His verse is outright heroic. Like the ascent of the spirit from the body to the heavens. Mohammad flow to Quds. An eschatological epic. That ascending melody line in the instrumental. Those mourning yet triumphant backing vocals.

    Rap-ture. Salvation.

    Rap saved me.

    I suppose you lot are wondering why i know so much about, its because ive been around and exposed to it for a long arse time and the ironic thing is i dont like any of it and as far as im concerend alot of this reappraisal shit as i mentioned ages ago is only happening because all the young "hot" rappers like it and suddenly that old saying on how rappers have the worst taste in rock music now in demand for reevaluation what they were right all along or some shit,a trite excuse for some idiot who was into it when it was not cool to go back to it and try to wear it as some pathetic badge of honour as much as i get why some people felt when Lil Peep died that now was the time to talk about death and how we need to try to understand these go nowhere rust belt towns where all they have emo and barely pure drugs(which is very dangerously close to all that we need to listen to trump voter/white van man talk but thats for you man to dig into) but i know deep down alot of people dont give a shit not really anyway.

    The mad thing is i know that there is SOMEBODY out there who sees all this and feels like this kind of overwrought teen angst shit is cultural appropriation, which makes me howl cause nobody wants to talk acutal cultural appropriation cause it usually leads back to "should white people have dreadlocks?" Azelia Banks had peoples attention for a minute especially because T.I. and Iggy Azelia did such a bad job defending themselves but afterwards people just found her too draining to deal with. Now you expect me to feel sorry for some conjured up teen with snake bites cause he feels awkward about all these 30 somethings at emo night and that Static-X doesnt feel as special as it once did fuck outta here

    Last thing to bring up is that despite all this focus and yes some of this has permiated Britain and to a lesser extent Jamaica but at its core all this shit is American and America centered if it wasnt then explain to me why Mcfly or Busted aint a part of any of these conversations. (HELL wheres the Crush 40 reapprasial i know some of these people played more than one 3D Sonic game where them man at?)

    As much as people bus jokes about magnets and shit there is no British equivalent to the Insane Clown Posse it doesnt exist here its why i feel weird even trying to give an opinion on em cause the fuck is there to contextualise them with, i get it alt people feel that their own subculture has failed them so they all retreat to pop music and celebrating all the female rappers and pop stars who are more military complexes than people.


    Its like a pneumatic drill to the skull all this shit
