Doing what I do, I see more than enough stupid comments on the internet. Sometimes, I literally L-O-L, and sometimes I S-M-H, and sometimes it’s both. If someone isn’t cyber-bangin’, they’re probably talking gibberish. Last season I YKM’d Rap Trolls, and 1 year later, it’s same ol’ same ol’. Well, it’s kind of worse now because hate comments are actually directed at me. I guess I’m cool enough to be hated? Who knows. I usually love reading through comments, but sometimes I’d rather go watch some kids scream at an old lady. Lately, that video has been on replay. Find out why after the break. These type of comments on blogs, Twitter, and YouTube kill me.
What was the worst thing about Hip-Hop in 2011? All of the lame subliminal disses. Without a doubt! For an industry of full of hard, mean, shoot your body up rappers we had a ton of lame subliminal diss tracks. Even Common jumped on the bandwagon towards the end of the year. If you’re going to diss someone, diss them! Say their name on the track. Jump in the ring, don’t dance around it. Hit ‘em with that bada boom boii. You’re killin’ me.
Damn that wasn’t weird, right? One day I wake up to a J. Clone diss by Canibus. Next day I wake up to an awkward apology video by the same guy. It’s been a few days since, and I’m still scratching my head. ‘Bus how are you going to diss someone for liking you, and why would you diss someone only to apologize a day later. Do you ever think about what you’re doing? Also, please don’t script your apology videos. What was that? Uh uh, don’t answer. You’re killin’ me.
Last time I checked freestyling meant rapping straight off the dome, not straight off the iPhone, or rapping verses from upcoming songs and calling them freestyles. You’re killin’ me. It also kills me when rappers remix a song and call it a freestyle. Out of all the things that are changing in Hip-Hop, this is what kills me the most.
Maybe it’s the media’s fault for asking freestyle challenged rappers to freestyle on every interview they do. Not every rapper is Canibus or KRS-One; so it’s unfair for us to ask them for freestyles on every interview. This epidemic was bound to happen. Some rappers can barely write raps, nevertheless freestyle on the spot. Under pressure who wouldn’t pull out the iPhone?
Due to the success of the last YKM: Upcoming Rappers, I’ve decided to revisit the subject and drop some more knowledge. Plus some of you are still killin’ me, so I feel obligated to reopen this topic. I’m getting tired of greedy rappers with cheap photography, horrible audio quality, lack of individuality, no breath control, and no YouTube accounts. This YKM is the closest you’ll get to a guideline about getting up out the sidelines. J. Cole wannabes pay attention.
Congratulations Soulja Boy! You’re the first person to ever get two YKM’s. Really though? How is that possible? Do you try to screw up on purpose? The one time you try to deliver a concrete message in your music, it turns out horrible. You said, “F**k the FBI and the army troops fighting for what? Be your own man”. You’re killin’ me. The apology you later released didn’t help the situation either. For the second time, Soulja Boy you’re killin’ me.
