Whites are the true minorities you cracker since you only account for 12% of the world population.

As I said:

R.A.P. Music = Rebellious African People's Music.

R.A.P. Music was created to help the struggling black man living in dire poverty after the Vietnam war, not to appease crackers live yourself. So if you have a problem with that then make your own genre of music and stop fu*king with our the integrity of OUR music.

I agree, the music knows no boundries, but its a given that your average white hip hop listener flocks more to popular mainstream hiphop as opposed to the deep rooted underground culture of it.......and vice versa the average mainstream rock listener who is black may like just that mainstream artist, but wont go deep into the genre...because they already know it wont appeal to them........
True and false, I've met a lot of white dudes that know more about underground Hip Hop than a lot of my friends. White kids are big part of the reason why labels like Def Jux, Stones Throw, etc can still exist.

Not sure about this comment....... I mean there is clearly a difference between white and black music, and does he not know there are more types of music other than white and black. Honestly "white" music has been stealing black work since the jazz era.

This is kinda fitting...psa.

I think hood white ppl understand the culture more since it came from the hood and was used to express just that no matter the race. All these ppl making stupid or corny music whether they be white, black, asian, from the hood, suburbs, etc. can go somewhere. I see outside ppl speak on hiphop all the time trying to bash it entirely and when I ask them what hiphop they know, they say whatever meaningless song is on the radio. They don't even have the patience to look for the depth.

"I don't do black music, I don't do white music, I do everyday life music"

- kendrick the goat got it before jay
You mean Eminem one of the goats got it before both:

"I don't do black music, I don't do white music
I make f!ght music, for high school kids"



But that statement is interesting. It came out in 2009 so maybe his views changed from that time period to when WTT dropped. I dunno

Now I disagree with that statement. unless youre from a certain area and you were raised on that kind of music. there is a difference between black, white. latino, asian, etc etc, music


whats crazy is they're comparing what he was talking about on WTT, which was the black struggle coming from nothing to being the successful african americans, and speaking on the luxuries that comes with that hard work and success to saying music has no color boundaries.


why must u haters twist the story?

2pac will always be >>> than this fellow or any other east coast artist. I dont hear nobody down south listenin to no Jayz.Which is proof he didnt have an impact on hiphop outside of east coast just like Nas. He's another overrated artist,but he doesnt suck though. If he wouldve never married Beyonce and been all over the media for it,his career wouldve been over. His only fanbase is on the east coast. Just like Biggies was. Its amazing how people try to put fake legend status's on these guys when their only fanbase is in their region. None of the fellas had the impact on the game that pac did. Pac had fans from all regions and countries.
hollup hollup hollup yo....... wtf yall nigguhs rlly just gonna act like this didnt get posted? this by far the fvckin dumbest shyt ive read all week like im rlly laughing rn at how stupid this post is theres not one sentence in this dumb shyt thats even close to accurate (maybe the beyonce part not rlly tho) plz tell me ur not serious bro how the fvck has no1 shyt on this fvckin dumbass yet

You know what's crazy. I heard that rap started from this game that was called the dozens. The dozens is a game that people would diss eachother and make it rhyme.

You can see it in this episode from the 70's, right before or around the time hip-hop was starting.


[video - click to view]


Now i learned that hip-hop music started because people from lower income communities was deprived of being musical. Meaning they took music out of the schools. While the schools in the higher income communities had access to learn about music, and how to play different instruments. They had cut that out of the schools in the lower income communities. So now the people from those communities are left without the opportunity to learn about music, how to play instruments, etc.

Out of nothing these people were able to create something. With No Instruments these people made music.

Now today you have what i will say the most influential music artform. You can hear some hip-hop in all of the music that comes out today.

It has traveled all over the world, and you have hip-hop in almost every country. It's in the Caribbean, places like puerto rico, dominican republic, cuba, jamaica, and all these little islands. Because people can relate to having nothing, being deprived of the same things the creators of hip-hop were. It's in Latin America, in Asia, everywhere.

Hip-Hop is Global and something that everyone contributes to.
