How in the world is rap music like this so popular?
I seriously can’t wrap my head around how in the world seemingly sentient beings listen to such garbage as this and think, “Wow, this is good music” or “Wow, she’s so incredibly talented” with a straight face. The beats, production, and song structure is all laughably bad; and, the lyrics are beyond atrocious. Seriously, she wants to be taken seriously as an “artist”, as well as a commentator of sorts on particular social issues, yet this is what her lyrical offering amounts to? Sadly, this seems to be the state of the bulk of rap music that has become so popular today. I’ll happily stick with The Roots, Nas, Damian Marley, K’Naan, A Tribe Called Quest, and Lauryn Hill’s one album (seriously, how, after 20 years, has she never released a follow-up to her Miseducation album?!).
