Rap

In case you missed it, this is a great moment for rap and comedy in our society. Jon Stewart rips Fox News a new one again for being hypocrites, but this time he does it in the form of Spoken Word.



I don't post this so much because of the politics, but because this whole issue is about words. Rappers used to push boundaries and force us to think about the nature of our society, and even though we've gotten away from it with modern rap, there is still a culture in hip hop of challenging the status quo, and there is still a gaggle of people who like to take lyrics out of context and use them to support silly agendas.

Common's great, and Public Enemy, but here's my favorite: KRS-One.

  1. I haven't been watching The Daily Show lately...looks like it's time to tune back in.

    You may have seen this already, but Jon Stewart will be on The O'Reilly Factor to debate. Should be interesting: http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/jon-stewart-to-go-on-the-oreilly-factor-monday_b66347

    I really enjoy your blog and am very interested to see what happens with Nice Girls Don't Kill!

  2. To finish your thought rap nowadays is embarrassing. 100 word vocabularies do not an MC make.

    BOYCOTT THAT CRAP!!!

    or go to www.soundclick.com/cstyle for some LITERATE rap.

    Had to get in a tad bit of not-so-shameless self-promotion. besides it's free.

Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
