    honest question. Let's assume that Yelawolf, Aesop Rock and Eminem are anomalies.

    Nope. We should just stick to being in the crowd and wishing we could do that.

    AOTP and JMT (And mostly whoever is associated with them) would beg to differ. Lotta good underground white rappers, in my opinion anyway.

    Cups & Blunts is basically God's way of apologizing to black people for Skindred.

    Meh. Just as many good white rappers by % imo. you only being able to name 3 that you think are dope just shows how few white people are actually rapping.

    take 100 white rappers and 100 black rappers (not random people, but ones that actually are a part of the culture) - and I think a similar (small) percentage of each will be very good at it and most will suck of both races.

    The reason why you see more black people good at rapping is because more black people rap / are even into the culture than any race. If you broke it down proportionally, I dont think black folks have like some higher rapping genetics or some shit like that

    Its like if you flip it with golf which was an extremely predominantly "white" thing and you see tiger out there and people think hes just an anomaly and black people suck at golf or something.

    but really just not that many black folks are into golf, so surely there will be less of them that are great at it. But its not like they are inherently bad at golf.

    you could flip golf with hockey or whatever.

    i guess my main point is whichever culture started it / does it the most is going to seem like they are better at it when really just not enough people of other cultures are doing it.

    and you're being way too sensitive. fall back a second. let the thread develop instead of knee-jerking as if I laid out my personal opinion in the OP.

    This question is so damn dumb. If you are good in you field you are good in your field race should have nothing to do with it. I want to say I cant believe this shit was asked but I can.

    The question should be; "Should asians rap"?

    i agree with this. Without making assumptions Teacozy, it seems as though you feel the rappers you mentioned are not good example of the typical "white" rapper as you listed them as anomalies.

    What about any white rappers who grew up around the beginnings of hip-hop, should they concede respect to a non-white fan who just decided to take up rapping? I think it's more about your background and what rap culture means to you, rather than the colour of your skin.
