Lemme start with the POSITIVES FIRST:
LARGE UP STORMZY WHOSE FATHERING THE WHOLE THING & FLYING THE FLAG #MERKY
In the past 5 years the UK Urban music scene has, risen, grown & completely solidified itself amongst all other commercial music consumed over here. And it’s been a beautiful, beautiful thing to witness. I love the unity that the artists [appear] to have: I saw that a lot of them were recently partying it up at Stormzy’s #MerkyFest and there’s been an umpteen amount of collaborations amongst themselves too. The guys are going strong! They’re really doing well. I feel proud & I’m loving it!!!!
NOWWW LET’S GET DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY SHALL WEEEEEEEE
!!!!!!EVERY FUCKER NEEDS TO STEP THEIR GAME UP IMMEDIATELY & YES THAT INCLUDES YOU STORMZY..& YOU SANTAN DAVE (or David Olawarju as I like to call him) !!!!!!!!!!!!<<< & no I don’t know him personally, I’m just a weirdo that makes up names for people sometimes 🙂
I am so tired of the GIMMICKY BULLSHIT:
– THE TACKY DESIGNER WEAR (& guys bragging about it)
– THE OBJECTIFICATION OF WOMEN: PARTICULARLY CURVY WOMEN. & LIGHTSKINNED WOMEN..& SOMETIMES BROWN SKINNED WOMEN!!!!!
– THE FUCKING ICY CHAINS & FLASHY JEWELLERY HANGING FROM YOUR NECKS, WORN ON YOUR WRISTS & ON YOUR FUCKING PINKY FINGERS
– THE RENTED CARS & MANSIONS IN YOUR MUSIC VIDEOS
– THE LACK OF STYLE THAT MANY OF YOU SEEM TO HAVE UNFORTUNATELY: you seem to think that you look good just coz you’re wearing expensive but TACKY designer wear??? #drip
– This whole “I’m the baddest, I’m the realest” braggy thing
– THE GLORIFICATION OF BLOOD MONEY, DRUGS, CASUAL SEX & VIOLENCE
– THE LEACHY BEST FRIEND THAT DOESN’T RAP BUT FEELS THE NEED TO BE ALL UP IN THE CAMERA IN YOUR MUSIC VIDEOS
– THE LACK OF REAL, RAW & MOST IMPORTANTLY [CONCIOUS] LYRICAL CONTENT!
– I don’t have much to say about the girls unfortunately coz the guys are really carrying the scene
I remember earlier this year, (February to precised) watching the “Rated Legend” show, which was a tribute Concert to deceased rapper Cadet (may he Rest In Eternal Peace) and being really excited for the show prior to watching it: Krept had hyped it up online, saying it was gonna be the Greatest show blah blah blah…I was convinced that all performers would bring their A game in honour of Cadet’s name. Which I believe that they did. Howeverrrrr, I remember sitting there while watching it thinking “surely this isn’t THE BEST we can do. Surely there has to be BETTER TALENT & MORE POWERFUL ENERGY. Look man, we’ve got Dave & Stormzy who are the best we have to offer but even with them I was like “really???” I think Dave is too fragile for the music industry. He’s precious and sensitive. I feel like he should retire as early as possible, save himself the stress and the premature aging and just bog off and go and do charity to work or something. I feel like Stormzy on the other hand, would make a good pastor in a church!! He’s pretty powerful in his own right to be fair: he’s a thorough performer and a good rapper. He has great delivery. I feel that he’s lacked consistency in the past but his popularity and likability has carried him through and kept him relevant. STORMZY LACKS SELF BELIEF & IS STILL UNHAPPY. I CAN SEE IT. I do believe he has a lot to give BUT I’M STILL NOT FULLY SOLD OR CONVINCED. I DON’T GET GASSED OR BRAINWASHED OFF OF PEOPLE’S POPULARITY AND THEIR FAME STATUS. I STILL SEE THRU SHIT. & DAT NIGGA DEYA. DAT NIGGA STORMZY. MICHAEL, MICHAEL AMARI?!?! I’D LIKE TO MEET HIM THO. LOOK HIM IN THE EYE AND SEE WHAT ENERGY HE’S REALLY ON. WHA YOU SAYIN STORMZY, WHAT MAYA JAMA’S REALLY YOUR GIRL YH?!? MAYA JAMA?!?! SO WHAT HOW COME YOU AIN’T PUT A RING ON IT YET AND BREEDED IT UP AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. DERE AIN’T REALLY NO EXCUSE BRUH! U LOT AIN’T SERIOUS.
2 be continued…EVERYONE SHOULD JUST STEP THEIR GAME UP, DIG DEEPER & GET ALOT REALER WITH THEMSELVES IN THE MEANTIME…I do think Stormzy’s currently on the path to this so let’s just see how it goes
ALSO LARGE UP TINIE TEMPAH. U SHIT ON ALL OF THESE CURRENT GUYS. U HAVE STYLE & A COOL SENSE OF CREATIVE DIRECTION. YOU’RE YOUR OWN PERSON. A BELIEVABLE ARTIST. THE CLOSEST THING WE’VE HAD TO KANYE YET (bar all the controversy and unlikability etc that Kanye sometimes comes with)
BONKAZ HAD POTENTIAL TOO – I REALLY FEEL THAT HE HAD somethinggg..
there’s a guy called Che Lingo that could come thru and boogie woogie. Let’s see what happens!
What about you INFECTA where are you?
I HAVE THIS NOTION IN MY HEAD THAT ALL POPULAR, SUCCESSFUL MALE RAPPERS ARE MYSOGYNISTIC PIGS. AM I WRONG??! leave JayZ, Kanye & Tupac out of that statement though…those guys are extremely enigmatic. Very precious & special.
P.S. if ur gonna do the whole IGNORANT thing yh, do it properly!!
