Confused
Let's see...the fatboy was 24, the other little criminal was 25.
Almost got through high school.
Lived the Hood.
Wrote the Hood,
Knew only one kind of life.
Practiced the arts.
Did little real 'good' for humanity.
But entertain people.
Died outside the Hood.
Was it all about the Pride or was it all about the Money?
Could they be considered 'false prophets'?
Do we need a damned movie about another tweeker/reeker or two who really didn't do anybody any good other than to give people a beat which to exercise?

Yeah! Let's glorify street thugs and drug pushers. Oh, didn't somebody get shot, too?

Let's return to a time when rapping was a good thing.

The biggest question about the whole affair will likely remain unanswered.

That question being.... WHO CARES????

I'm really getting sick of seeing promos for this crap! Hell if they at least held a door open for someone or donated to a charity for a good cause like say Paul Newman or that entertainer who founded St. Jude's Children's Hospital I would care. But since he was self centered and was all about "MEMEME" I'd say as it been stated before, who cares???

F it just came on AGAIN!

I remember hearing that the industry knows who killed Tupac and Biggie but has kept it a secret so that they can make money and keep making money off of these dead artists who sadly died way too young. I wouldn't put it past them.

Actually Tupac and Biggie were NOT thugs with microphones. Whenyou are thinking of thugs with microphones you are thinking of rappers who arrogantly brag rap abput shootouts with the law and drive bys and how much bling bling they have(Flashy jewelry), and cars and loose women(Hoes). Biggie and Tupac were way above that. They were visionaries rapping truth into their lyrics. Especially Tupac. Tupac's songs were about opening up your eyes to the evils around the world and bettering yourself, and his heartfelt regret for being a brat to his mother when he was younger.

Biggie's songs were a little materialistic such as Hypnotize but Juicy is him bring grateful not arrogant that he went from being a starry eyed dreamer to being a success. There's a difference between being arrogant like Kanye West is/was and being grateful like Biggie was.

Personally, I think you're reading way too much into this.
As a group, I wouldn't call any of these rappers "artists" or even "musicians" - but in general, (perhaps with the exceptions you noted), "thugs with microphones" is a rather fitting description.
 
The bottom line for me is the entire genre pretty much sucks.
It's not at all pleasing to the ear, and I personally do not enjoy listening to any of it.
It is my least favored thing to hear, right behind fingernails on a chalkboard, or perhaps the warning cries of macaque monkeys.  (Maybe there's a connection there?)

I decided to research this a little, which means I checked the Wikipedia page for Tupac.
Fatherless household (yawn, shocker right there!).
 
And why brag rap, when you can actually claim it as your own?
 
To wit:
Drug dealer by age 12.
Weapons charge at age 17.
 
Forget his "music".
What part of "Thug" are you missing, Donathan?

In the 50's women were swooning over Elvis Presley. In the 60's, they were swooning over The Beatles. In the 70's, they were swooning over Aerosmith. In the 80's, they were swooning over Poison. In the 90's, they were swooning over Backstreet Boys.

I was talking about something different.

What I was talking about, was how it seems to be infiltrating every aspect of our lives. You can't even watch the news anymore, without them doing some celebrity gossip story, and talking about these low-class rappers like Kanye West and Jay Z and as if they were just normal, wholesome entertainers and household names like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra were in the 60's.

The reality of course, is that most of them are no-talent gutter trash.

But because the younger portion of society has nothing more important or worthwhile to occupy their feeble little brains with than the crappy, garbage music they're addicted to, the rest of us have to suffer even when we're trying to watch the so-called "news".

I don't even know what a lot of these people do.  Especially the "rappers".  They always seem to be rappers/producers/fashion designers/MCs/DJs/spokespeople...yet I know none of their stuff.
 
Then there's all those who make the headlines for who they're dating or having babies with, yet I've never even heard of them.

Speaking of "idiotic". I recently watched a Pawn Stars episode which featured the Tupac death car which was at auction. Chumlee volunteered (without being asked) everything we could give a s**t less about Tupac including what a wonderful talented person. Very similar to Donathan's post. Gag! A photo was shown of the death car full of bullet holes. Similar to the Bonnie and Clyde and James Dean celebrity death cars which were displayed as is. The 1990s BMW 750 was repaired to excellent condition. Huh! A car value expert was asked what average wholesale value would be on a similar car? "About $5,000". The seller was asked what the buy now price was? "$1.6,000,000! For what?Confused

Personally, [which is code for saying "in my own defense"], all bets are off when Tupac himself uses the word "NIGGAZ" in the title of his own Top-40 songs!!
 
Of course, it's not about the "N-word" anyway - and never is/was.
It's about how people behave in society.
Dealing drugs at age-12, and getting arrested for guns at age-17, isn't exactly an auspicious start - and is definitely not something to be memorialized and idolized.
 
Of course, one could argue that both conditions are prerequisites to rapper "street cred" and stardom.

WinkWell said...and it all could have been forgiven had they turned their lives around.
 
For them?
 
It's just another 'Thug Life' gone bad, gone down, just gone.
 
It's adopting unacceptable behaviors for the sole purpose of personal satisfaction or personal gain. 
It's benefitting from the weakness of others and possibly even taking kindness for weakness
It's the act of being selfish, self-serving, self-important.
It isn't black, it isn't white. it isn't Hispanic or Oriental, it's sort of Chumlee.
 
It isn't enough to avoid this lifestyle - it has to be driven down. As long as we have young and easily influenced youth, it is the responsibility of all to ensure that fertile, easily-influenced minds become all they can be rather than a statistic.
 
And about the 'N' word? One lifestyle uses it freely and generally doesn't understand the meaning other than it is colorblind and describes nothing of color, but everything of lifestyle.

That's just enough time to witness someone else's small hands with innocent eyes and hopeful smile looking up at you for maybe just a hug - and maybe you did.
Then you spent some time on CIH.
What do you know?! Your NOT dead yet - no MudMonkeyMeritBadge for YOU - but that brat at the door, clearly high with gun in hand, has no idea you started his day off right one time and then turned and walked away. Why not? He wasn't YOUR spermmistake, but now he's society's.
And yea - that cute baby girl you knew?
Sure.
Preggos in the Dirtball hotel, looking for heroin.
Yup...another clash and crash with society because too many turned away.
You can change so many lives in 14 or 15 years, even a lot in a short amount of time - there just has to be an 'inner drive'.
Guess if you can't help 'em that way, may as well get a gun.

It's the idiotic celebrity worship culture that has taken over the collective brains of society.
Speaking of "idiotic". I recently watched a Pawn Stars episode which featured the Tupac death car which was at auction. Chumlee volunteered (without being asked) everything we could give a s**t less about Tupac including what a wonderful talented person. Very similar to Donathan's post. Gag! A photo was shown of the death car full of bullet holes. Similar to the Bonnie and Clyde and James Dean celebrity death cars which were displayed as is. The 1990s BMW 750 was repaired to excellent condition. Huh! A car value expert was asked what average wholesale value would be on a similar car? "About $5,000". The seller was asked what the buy now price was? "$1.6,000,000! For what?Confused 
I've long wondered what Chumlee wants to be and what he will stand for when he reaches puberty.

 

The Pawn Stars episode played again yesterday. The history channel and all the others that also play interesting (to me) documentaries tend to play the same ones over and over and..... ARRRRRHHHH!!! Any way my memory of the Tupac death car episode was nearly perfect (for a change). The buy now price was $1.5,000,000. I guess that makes it a bargain! LOL

I admit, I liked 2Pac and Notorious BIG, the music back in the 90s. The deaths sucked, but i didn't lose sleep over it.

Anyway, I don't quite understand the slew of the specials, TV shows on these now. USA has it, FX I believe is coming up with another one. AND FOX just aired some silly in depth special last week. Hosted by former CNN Soledad O'Brien and Ice-T. It's not some big milestone anniversary of their deaths - 1996 and 1997 - unlike all the OJ trial specials, Now a lot of Waco specials (20 and 25th anniversary)

I ended  up turning it off because I simply didn't care, the ton of conspiracy theories, etc
But I WISH I taped the one 5-6 min segment with Ice -T giving his 2 cents. Which simply consisted of one word - "Wow." 

That is ALL he said during the 5 minutes before a commercial kicked in. I know, stupid, I just mumbled and laughed LOL to myself..."damn, such power insight by Ice...other than being a hip hop artist back in the day...why is he on this show?" 

- then I changed the channel. I also saw "All Eyez On Me" on HBO last week, 1, 2am. Terrible movie!

To give an explanation to the older crowd on the boards, 2Pac and Biggie are considered to be the" Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Doors," of rap. I'm not trying to say they are as talented as Led Zeppelin, I am just trying to use an analogy to relate it to you guys.

Just as there is crappy rock music, there is also crappy rap music. I think there is rap that sucks, but I like Biggie and 2Pac. I think there is rock that sucks, but I like Led Zeppelin.

You could still dislike them for all I care. I'm not in this for an argument, just trying to shed some light as to how they are seen.

WinkI'll respect your opinion and now provide mine.
 
First, I cannot fathom comparing ANY cRAP to Led Zepplin...and having said that, you may now have an idea of my thoughts on cRap artists.
DisapproveThey were simply more undereducated products of their environments just like cancer and THAT is what it begat and continues to this day in a fashion and style similar to the Pharos and other Egyptian influences. They speak with their own to their own and influence their own and the weak of others. Their art was also a reflection of their environment and just as welcome (to this day).
I do not like rap at all.
In MY OPINION:
It is not an art.
It is not a skill.
It basically is how to babble fast, how to rhyme wit 'da crime an' beez doin' 'da time...
It ain't 'Life with Reason', it's 'Robbin' Season' cauz weez need to beez pleezun' 'da bitches wit 'da bling so we get 'dem babies and name all dem yung tramps 'Food Stamps'.
Bitch ain' gonna eber werk or hab a career (what' s a 'career'?) and I got 2 guns an 2 chains.
My drugs are my money and my guns are my cred and your kindness is a weakness I will exploit.
A huge water roach ran across a wall at a friend's house, yesterday, during our neighborhood coffee & community improvement gathering. After killing it, we discussed how to address the human/rap form of them and among the gathering was the ghetto psychiatrist (she certainly lives the life) who explained it is now becoming only a matter of time before it kills itself off if the ghetto elders do not recognize and address the fact the 'community family tree' has fewer and fewer branches as it grows. She points out that she has had to stop her own adult children from entering into relationships multiple times because the fact they didn't know they were about to fall for a previously unknown step-brother/sister or cousin. She admits not many other parents care or even know how thin the community blood line is getting or the long-term impact. This is the Rap Community which is doomed to become little more than a FEMA camp as it dies off and the land reverts to fields of rust and dust, before re-emergence.
Sounds like ancient Egypt, India, or even portions of South America doesn't it? Kind of inbred, isn't it because that is that it was which lead to the ultimate chaos that came to be in each case. The rap/hood life is the same. Get educated, don't waste time with that 'bubblegum for the brain' cRap. Get a skill in something you love that lends itself to enhancing life for the many - you'll be much happier.

Nah. There was always blues based rock in the 70's, but being exclusively into punk and nothing else, you probably just weren't listening to it.

If you want to find blues rock from the 70's, you need look no further than bands like ZZ Topp, Humble Pie, Elvin Bishop, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc, etc, etc...

By the early/mid 80's guys like Stevie Ray Vaughn and Robert Cray were topping the charts with blues rock songs like

Pride and Joy...



...Cold Shot...



...Smoking Gun...



...Strong Persuader...



And, btw... as for the Allman Brothers, they had hits in the 80's with songs like I'm No Angel and Good Clean Fun.

Etc, etc.

All I said was that, in the 70s, blues-based rock was going away.  Of course a few remained.  I'm thinking George Thorogood.
 
Even the Wikipedia entry for Vaughan refers to an 80s blues "revival":
 
"he was one of the most influential https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar" rel="nofollow - - AllMusic describes him as "a rocking powerhouse of a guitarist who gave blues a burst of momentum in the '80s, with influence still felt long after his tragic death."
