Ol’ Dirty Bastard - Shimmy Shimmy Ya (1995) (Flashback Friday)
if you claim to “like rap music” and you only listen to white rappers i don’t trust you
i hope this is sarcasm…. rap mean “rhythm and poetry” nowhere does it say you have to be black…
Best Hip Hop group of all time hands down. Peep Cappadonna in the middle of the W #Wu #WuTang #Shaolin #Rap #HipHop #Music
Here are The Lost Bois, killer queer hip-hop out of D.C. They’re doing their best to straddle the line between super political rap and riot grrl/queercore and succeeding quite well.
The Lost Bois make some great music. The beats are simple and catchy, designed to worm their way right to your brain and stick there. Not too much remarkable about them, but they’re effective and provide a great base for Lost Boi’s amazing rhymes. They address all manner of cultural and societal topics with a sense of humor and tongue in cheek tone that really reminds me of riot grrrl. In the song “The Race” B. Steady raps “I don’t look like Ellen, but some brown folks are gay too/Not The L Word, Tyler Perry, I am not Alicia Keys/My friend my life is not the chick they’re showing on TV.” It’s amazing. Spinning pop culture references with sharp political commentary, that’s pretty much my idea of perfect lyrical content.
And on top of all that, they’re pretty DIY, making their own videos and music. Really, what’s not to love?
