You’re Killin’ Me: Subliminal Disses
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.
I guess it’s what we get when we teach children to run away from bullies instead of confronting their fears. You can’t run to a teacher or principal in real life sonny boy. People are going to try to bully you. You’re going to have to stand up for yourself. We’re raising wimps. Anyways, that’s a topic for another day, and another place. The point is that Hip-Hop is full of wimps. Probably because of the school system which taught them. I’m not asking for rappers or people in general to act like gangsters, and be bad asses either. I just want for rappers to not be wimps about calling someone out, and stop doing lame “diss” tracks with a bunch of subliminal jabs. If you’re not going to say anybodies name, don’t even bother. Holla at Game for some lessons. The dude is a master at calling people out on tracks.
Then you guys go blaming bloggers for starting beefs? What are people supposed to think when a rapper says “boii” in a Big Sean accent, after lines such as, “get it while you’re here boii, ’cause all that hype don’t feel the same next year, boii”. Am I on one or something? That was just one example too. We had at least one of those every month this year. Lame subliminal disses, you’re killin’ me.
Once again I’m not calling for rappers to be violent, and start beefs. Just that if you’re going to start a beef, start it, don’t half cook it. Stop it with these lines with double meanings. You rappers know exactly what you’re doing; it’s no accident. If you mention The Throne of course we’re going to think of Jay and Kanye. Don’t be stupid. Mention peoples name on tracks. You’re killin’ me.
