Rap!
« on: October 18, 2010, 06:21:47 PM »

Yes rap, I love rap and I will be the first to admit it.

Although I love nerd core rap.

A-1 raps about my childhood shows that I loved

Then there is MC Chris that raps about starwars and other misc shit.

Also MF Doom is pretty rad, he has some crazy in the head issues and you never see his face but his raps are sick.

I do not want to live to archive my own life.
I see it everywhere around me, especially with the popularity of web diaries, forums, and cell phones that take pictures.
I do not want to fall into the subtle trap of truly believing I Blog Therefore I Am.

Oooh, now this is where it gets to be a very long post. Will try and tag explicit lyrics in the songs I link to but make no guarantees :D.


Not complete by -any- standard, I have a huge amount of vinyl and there's songs I can think of right now by people like Rakim and Royce da 5'9" that should be on this list, but I'm done for now.

Edit: Better, that fixed the formatting.
