noisereductions 01.25.2014 01:18 PM

Ok, is it me, or is Macklemore just the biggest fucking douche bag in the goddamn world? I swear, there's something about him (his face, lyrics, and popularity mostly) that just make me want to break his goddamn face.

I happen to know some young women who fancy themselves neo-hippies, and can't have a conversation without mentioning the evils of factory farming and Monsanto, and despite being very intelligent people, they fucking LOVE this guy. It's because he sings about how:

• gay people should be treated no differently than straight people (but is careful to state that he himself is not gay)
• NIKE shoes are bad (because people will steal them from you?)
• He said "fuck you" to a record deal, and released a record himself (which was immediately available on iTunes, Spotify, and in record stores nationwide, with a video on VH1 and a single on popular radio as soon as it was released.... Hmm)

I think he's writing songs that are manipulating those desperate to appear socially conscious young Americans by writing songs that scream "I'm socially conscious!!" It should be noted that his fans, from my perspective, tend to be white, privileged, non hip-hop fans who hate Kanye West, but have never heard "Who Will Survive in America."

Kendrick absolutely needs to destroy this guy. His song about "I've been through drug addiction and I'm honest!!" is particularly intolerable.

noisereductions 01.25.2014 02:56 PM

I haven't overthought it. I just think Macklemore's music is boring.

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 01.25.2014 06:00 PM

MC Tree new shit. Talib Kweli new shit. Apparently Outkast reunion is legit with several upcoming tour dates announced.. Possible new Bone Thugz?? New Swizz Beatz soon.. The Roots working on a new release.. Kool Keith got something new coming out next month.. 2014 is already going fantastic for hip-hop..

noisereductions 01.25.2014 06:43 PM

man suchfriends, Bone Thugs is one group I could never get into.

New Roots would be nice. I love that they show no signs of ever slowing down, even w/ the Fallon gig keeping them busy.

Oh - new Young Money in March y'all.

Bone was a particular rap for a particular moment, but it was a great moment, I think in 1995 a lot of gangsta rappers caught that Holy Ghost and started God-rapping. Bone Thugs was the pinnacle of that style, rapping about street shit yet from a faith-based perspective. Plus, barbershop raps isn't for everybody either. However, these ninjaz already saw you comin..

noisereductions 01.25.2014 08:04 PM

it wasn't the faith man. I can respect that. It's just the nursey-rhyme style rapping. Could never feel it. Always sounded corny to me. No disrespect. Just didn't do shiz for me.

Kendrick is actually nominated for 7 awards. i believe he will win.. but then again, with those peeps you can never know.

louder 01.25.2014 11:29 PM

the media overhyped the hell out of that "Control" verse though. i can't blame Kendrick cuz he wasn't even expecting it to be such a big deal. oh well, it's pretty much gone and forgotten.

hmm.

Hate's a pretty strong word. I tend to not be a Hater. ;)

I'll let you know if I think of anything.

louder 01.27.2014 02:46 AM

Kendrick was nominated for 7 awards but didn't win anything. fuck that bullshit.

louder 01.27.2014 03:42 AM

Macklemore = Pitbull/Flo-Rida for nerds. nobody actually knows his verses, people only listen to him because of the singers who are featured on his choruses.

plus i found some old tweets that expose him as a phony:

Macklemore.. conscious rap for people who don't listen to conscious rap.

"YO MAN THERE ARE DEEP MESSAGES IN HIS SONGS.. SOMETHING ABOUT HOMOSEXUALS I THINK".

louder 01.27.2014 08:04 AM

this pisses me off so much: http://instagram.com/p/jqXYYAwK_y/

"It's weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the speech, but then.."

yeah right, you fucking liar.

he wants people to be like "OMG Macklemore is so humble!", dude is so fake.
