    first off, i got nothing against magician, he was a nice dude when i met him at a farinelli's party. and we've got mutual friends so i'm sure he's good people. but i call bullshit when i see it. call him middle class or whatever you want, but he's not from the hood. i'd say most everyone here is privileged.

    First of all yeah I went to high school in a middle class suburb (though if you think being raised by a single mom working for local government and then struggling to pay my own way through community college is growing up privileged well i guess my silver spoon was pretty damn shiny). I've also lived in the deep Baltimore ghetto for awhile. Regardless, some gangster rap is ignorant..not all of it obviously but when I'm playing tracks by Plies, li'l B or Wacka flocka Flame do you really think ignorant is an unfair descriptor? Hell I'm sure it's somewhat self-aware and I'm not calling the artists ignorant just some of the music... but if you think it's unfair to call this ignorant: then I dont even know... Damn.

    aight well just caught me as an odd sideways comment on music you're playing. i don't really think those artists make ignorant music, actually i think lil b is kinda genius/hilarious. not really a fan of wacka flocka or plies, but i don't really check for them too much either.

    I agree that Lil'B is genius/hilarious, still some of his stuff is really dumb even gleefully so. I don't play that music ironically either, I genuinely love it. I think it's often hilarious, it's culturally relevant and somewhat thrilling in its' violation of taboos. that doesn't mean it's not ignorant.

    also I definitely dont think all gangsta rap is ignorant, notice how in my post i made a specific distinction between gfunk and the dumb stuff....

    and though gangsta rap is an easy place to find ignorant music there's obviously no monopoly there, some of my other favorite genres like underground metal and punk obviously have tons of ignorance too, and yeah I enjoy a lot of that stuff.

    it's funny how much some here are willing to spend on clothes while residing in what amounts to a slightly more luxurious street-side burrito cart and using a stained couch as a bed, dining set, and writing desk simultaneously.

    I have a decent place. Leather couches, nice tv, driftwood table ... but shitty curtains, no rug, ugly walls and a second bedroom full of junk that I want to convert into a dressing room.
