damn that is very good.

i don't actually like the "hook" much, but the yup/nope throughout is incredibly slick.

video is slick as well, great idea.

I usually don't listen to much 'Aussie rap' but came across this when I was walking on the treadmill last week and it's a nice track to jog to.

my gf has a weird tendency, when she doesn't like things, to declare them not the thing that they are. for example, rap is "not music" to her because she doesn't like it. except some songs, which she does like. but nevertheless she defends her position that rap is "not music" to her, whatever anyone else's definition of music might be. this drives me crazy.

anyway she asked me to make her a playlist of rap songs to "open her mind" and i quickly ended up back in freshman year of college, listening to the pretty toney album with my roommate. what a great record.

smh @ "rap is not music" :(

have you linked her to dictionary definitions etc? that's usually what i do. i don't even debate i just link to definitions.

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/music

Quote
Vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

rap seems to qualify.

"beauty" is obviously subjective. some people find death metal beautiful. I don't, but it's music. their brains actually interpret it differently than my brain, iv'e seen studies on it. lool.

if someone wanted examples of rap being "music", i'd probably refer them to mos def or common .. more of an "intellectual rap" with some incredible sounds.

respiration maybe

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeTnog5RRQo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeTnog5RRQo</a>



or how about just live bands with a rap DJ like DJ Premier?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvn20PjBa3k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvn20PjBa3k</a>



can't see how anyone can debate that rap isn't music.. LMFAO. :derp: :uhhhfacepalm:



also, ghostface. RUN.

also, my dad doesn't like rap but he's definitely impressed with good rap/rappers. due to his music background, he notices skill that most people don't, that I can't even remember to mention here lol. i'm talking about rap itself though, not necessarily the beats. he doesn't care about the beats much, he's honing in on the actual rap & how they string words/verses together & rap to the beat with precision in ways that can get pretty complex. some rap beats are really solid too though, alot going on there, and even more legit from a "music purist" point of view when it's a live band.

also, he comes from a jazz background. his dad thought jazz wasn't music.. his dad was one of those "classical folks" (his generation).

i def get annoyed when people add their bias to it.. you don't have to like it, but you really have to acknowledge what it is, IMHO.

so i can see how you (LBSS) would get annoyed at that kind of "argument". lol.

the dictionary argument doesn't work, that's the annoying thing. when we were in botswana she tried to convince me that adverbs only modify verbs, and not, say, adjectives. to her they should only modify verbs because adverb has the word "verb" in it. while that's a compelling explanation of how she reached her incorrect conclusion, it does not make her correct. the idea of having a personal definition for a word that is different -- narrower -- than the widely accepted definition of that word drives my pedantic self up the wall.

that'd piss me off too.. lol.

i had a similar thing with a librarian woman on FB, over the definition of meat, which she wasn't accepting.. but she's a librarian. she stopped talking to me over that. lmfao.
