Kendrick Lamar's album is decent, but it's seriously overrated. If I hear one more comparison to Illmatic, I'm gonna lose my shit. The whole Black Hippy movement is overrated, and gets a huge boost merely by existing in a time where 2 Chainz is going platinum.

If we want to get into lyrics, then why aren't all you socially conscious white knighters listening to Brother Ali's album?

my (semi-serious) take on the whole "devolution" of youth culture if that's what you want to call it is this - if a certain song or whatever makes me smile and makes me excited, then i like it. it's not worth worrying about what's "good" based on someone else's standards. yeah, i know carly rae jepsen is "terrible" to musical connoisseurs, but that shit makes me smile when i'm pregaming with my friends or whatever, so fuck your standards, i like it.

so, yeah, that's my point. fuck your standards, and fuck you.

Hmm, this has very little to do with the problem, which is about young people talking like fucking morons. I like DjScrew but I don't go dropping lyrics while sitting at a café, I still know Schopenhauer suits me more than some ignant junkie.

i guess what bothers me about it is that even though I'm a privileged white person, the whole #swag scene is so privileged and detached from anything resembling the real world or actual experience that it's kind of crazy. It's like adding another level of detachment/insulation to a group that is already so out of step with actual life that it's kind of funny.

I fucking hated trap music til I heard it mixed into the bass music version of trap. http://soundcloud.com/flosstradamus/flosstradamus-diplo-friends

 

I don't think anyone's endorsing sufu speak though.

i don't see any difference between a bmore kid's detachment from black culture today and a va kid's detachment from black culture in the 90s. listen to what you like. also, i don't know shit about schopenhauer, but i do know that it's pretty weak to talk about how you like an artist's music and then dismiss them as an "ignant junkie" while sipping a latte. i'll take dj screw over philosophy any day, but that's just me.

who are you to decide what an actual life experience is?

I am actually a big fan of Gucci Mane.

because as subjective and relative experience is, there's a big difference between studying for a test and having to, say, plan a funeral. they're not mutually exclusive, but college is basically a 4 year vacation from a lot of the shitty parts of life.

To be honest, I didn't enjoy that performance at all. There were like 7 other acts playing that night, and I came to see someone else. I think I just wanted to amuse myself, and the whole fucking crowd of stupid hipsters was so dead, I thought i'd liven it up.

Can we stop using the term hipster.  It's fucking meaningless.  If you're on "StyleForum," you're a huge hipster to someone.

couple of random fits... and a question... how come I can't seem to get that nice flat stacking on my jeans? Are they not long enough, narrow enough, raw (ie stiff) enough?
