kendrick album is amazing on first listen
Why aren't Def Jam going to drop Reese after that video? What a shitty move on their part, if they don't.
I'm interested in what the response to that video should be then?
Obviously the video is digusting but why people are shocked at Reese is the bit that puzzles me. Look at that chicago drill scene, that lad got killed the other week and they're taking the piss out of him on twitter.
It's a harsh place and that video didn't surprise me at all is what I'm saying.
Part of what makes trap so objectionable in the eyes of some is its appropriation for populist ends. What made the original trap so gripping was its gritty drama, its "realness." "[Trap now is] largely a middle class movement that has borrowed not only the musical devices of that form, but also taken the cultural symbols, including the name itself... [which is] intensely problematic," explains Teasdale. "They're appropriating social references totally alien to them, sampling lyrics about crack houses, machine gun fire, and most of all, the name of the music itself. Crack house music. That's the thing that's bugging people."
