Happy Friday and Happy Music Revolution Day!!!
I am a lover of all music. I have my favorite types of genres but for the for the most I can say I am pretty much open to everything.
I will admit that if I had to list my favorite genres in order from most liked to least liked, rap would be at the bottom of the list. Even when I was younger, only certain types of rappers interested me and it had to sound a certain way. To this day I am picky and I am not really a fan of rap music now. There are a few songs that seem cool but I stay true to my favorites.
My favorite rapper is Ice Cube. Back in the day, he was harsh, real, and I immediately liked all his songs. He was part of the group Westside Connection and to this day they are my favorite rap group (if that’s what you call them) .
Here is a famous song from there that you may or may not have heard.
Bow Down- Westside Connection
My second favorite rapper is Biggie!! Or Notorious B.I.G.
I have so many favorite songs from him. He was a lyrical genius and when I say that I mean that he told a story and made it sound good. It flowed and wasn’t repetitive or like he was trying hard. He was impressive and I think even now after his death he demands respect.
Big Poppa-Notorious B.I.G.
I do stay true to old school rap but like I said there are few new rappers out there that have sparked my interest.
One of them in Ludacris. I think he gets better with each album he comes out with.
One More Drink-Ludacris Feat. T-Pain
Not everyone likes this music. I get it. It sometimes sounds as if they are yelling, shouting or speaking so fast. Even I can’t handle most of it. It eventually gives me a headache or I get frustrated. Yet when I get that itch for it… I can find all my faves loaded on my iPod and I can spin my favorite lyric….
“So you wanna be hardcore
With your hat to the back, talkin bout the gats in your raps “
