I love hip-hop. I love musicology, too. I think there's more to it than whatever low-hanging fruit you might have in mind.I'll give you one guess as to what it does have to do with...
I attended a small Midwestern college for a semester, ca. 1998. The college dean included in his monthly newsletter the statement, "Rap is to music what etch-a-sketch is to art".If someone that knows nothing about Hair Metal were to claim it is less than music and to misrepresent it in a negative way, you might suggest they don't know what they're talking aboot.
If going against the pack at strat-talk makes me seem "superior", I don't think the problem is on my end. Is it my snooty accent?
I've seen spectacular uses of the Etch-a-Sketch by artists.I attended a small Midwestern college for a semester, ca. 1998. The college dean included in his monthly newsletter the statement, "Rap is to music what etch-a-sketch is to art".
I find good stuff coming out of the UK.I agree with you 100%, and enjoy lots of old rap and I'm sure there is some really mind blowing music being made today.
Unfortunately I don't seek it out, and my only exposure is through the car thing, and that style doesn't make me want to hear any more. Maybe that's a whole different sub genre, and I shouldn't let it influence me. But, there you go.
