you're all a bunch of fucking hypocrites. you hate on these "nerd birds" like your favorite street rapper isnt just LARPing about hood shit. to quote myself: "the glorification of the "street hustle" and all that other bullshit is nothing more than dungeons and dragons for hood nerds. its LARPing. probably shoot 20 sided dice in the alley." "i got this +5 chain of swag and +20 goons of annoyance. GUNCLAP! GUNCLAP! GUNCLAP!" sure, there may be an exception in head ice... MAYBE. or hes got you all tricked, which is much more likely. but lets keep it reality here. anyone doing any real dirt isnt gonna get on camera and fucking rap about it. so why pretend? i'll tell you why.. because its fun and its a way to create a character. nothing more. does it bother you that in REALITY fresco has more of a right to spit gun bars than most of your favorite "hood" battlers? lil 8th ave was the closest thing to a real hood dude battling has ever seen... and he was awful. same goes for every battle rapper ive ever heard that actually has the arrest record to back up the bars. they're thugs, not guys who rhyme words well. the rest of these "criminals" are going to "jail" for bullshit small time possession charges and other not-so-nefarious dealings related to them being stupid. so why all the partisanship? its all make believe. *insert hood rapper here* toting hammers on the block has the same likelihood of being true as elfamail fucking your mother. unless of course the argument is that you prefer to hear people make believe about drugs, guns, murder, etc instead of more directly defamatory material. for me personally, its all the same. its entertainment and nothing more. when the cameras turn off most of these guys go back to their normal lives at normal jobs doing normal shit. the "street dream" doesnt exist, at least not for battle rappers.
