Anyway, how can anyone say that rap is dead? To anyone who says rap is dead, I say download the following:

Dem Franchize Boyz: I Think They Like Me
Get Rich Clique: Bunny Hop
E-40: Tell Me When To Go
Grafh: Myspace Jumpoff
Tabi Bonney: The Pocket
Gucci Mane: My Chain
Jibbs: King Kong
Jim Jones: Get Crunk Music
Juelz Santana: Make It Work For You
Nelly: Grillz
Chamillionaire: Platinum Stars
Lil Jon: Real Nlgga Role Call
Mike Jones: I Need a Dime
The Pack: Vans
Three Six Mafia: Slob On My Knob
Young Jeezy: My Hood
Young Jeezy: Icy
Jibbs: Chain Hang Low (REMIX) <--- this is the greatest song ever made

How can ANYONE think Rap has fallen off a bit?


Please kill yourself.

Nonsense. You people don't get what good music really is. You need a clue. Check amazon.com. Then get back to me when you're ready to talk music.

I'm listening to King Kong right now... and what is that I hear? CLASSIC MUSIC is what I hear.

00s Mainstream Rap > Beatles, Nirvana, Biggie, Weird Al put together

they are homos. you're not worthwhile as a rapper unless you have a Nitty beat, sound like you have Down syndrome, and talk about pushing cocaine.

Anyone check out Diddys new album? Guy has turned pop, although he was done when Mase left his side long time ago so its not that big of a suprise.

Let's talk about "Chain Hang Low Remix" in-depth.

The hook asks: do your chain hang low? do it wobble to the flo? This is clearly an allegory to the Chola Dynasty, a Tamil dynasty that ruled primarily in southern India until the 13th century.

Think about it.

Then Yung Joc points out that, quote, if the chain don't hang low, it ain't his, unquote. This is a revolutionary use of unique poetic style. It introduces a seemingly unecessary double negative, which further complicates the statement while adding no meaning to it, which is a literary metaphor for how his chain is more complicated (read: expensive, luxurious) than it would need to be for any practical use.

Jibbs then goes on to mention that you can hear him before you see him, as he has King Kong in his trunk. The truly great artists know to tell it like it is: he is saying that he went into the South American rainforest and killed a gigantic monkey, cut him into pieces, and put them in the trunk of his car. That's manly. The ultimate expression of manliness in fact. Women have been known to get pregnant sticking this CD in their pockets. This is Streetcar-era Brando ****. He's got King Kong in his mother****in trunk. An actual gorilla. Forget about it.

The Lil Wayne comes on:

I'm the ****; I should walk around with Pampers on me.
I'm cake'd up; I should walk around with candles on me.

Clearly, Lil Wayne uses his verse on this track to speak out against the many socioeconomic disadvantages facing young black youth today. I personally think it's great that rappers, who are millionaires far removed from racism being a factor, take time to acknowledge and speak out against the many injustices of today.

So... once again... HOW HAS RAP FALLEN OFF? I'd definitely say that some of the more popular modern rap rivals the works of Shakespeare (especially Macbeth. That was some elementary schit) in lyrical fluidity, literary depth, and social awareness.
