Real life? Paris Hilton just walked the Red Carpet for the Grammys with Birdman. She has a song with Lil Wayne? Yikes. c.

Bring Me Back My Rap

I feel like good rap these days is hard to come by, or maybe I’m just not looking hard enough.  I feel like most of what you hear out of rap these days is along the lines of “I’m rich” and “I got so many bitches” or “do the [insert stupid dance move name here].”  This is not to say I don’t like the songs, or bob along to them, or learn the [insert stupid dance move name here].  Hell, I posted one tonight.

However, I have not lost sight of the rap I like to listen to and appreciate.  I liked when Kanye and Jay-Z dropped “Watch The Throne” and I still listen to that album often.  But there is some rap that I don’t think will ever be topped.

Here are some of those for me.  a

P.S. I know I’ll be criticized cause some older rappers aren’t on here.  I don’t care.  These are a few of my faves.

He’s too clever:

 

One of the strongest, most emotionally raw songs from him:

 

Powerful.  And yes.  I love Lil Wayne:

VMA

I have mixed emotions of this years VMAs. I have watched this MTV special since I can remember and with each passing year it seems like the music and performances get raunchier and more provocative which makes me hope that the audience is getting older. I am a Ri Ri fan but do not necessarily support that upon turning on the VMAs we hear “Suck my cockiness..like my persuasion.”  Although the song is admittedly catchy there are many more songs that she could have killed on stage. Lil Wayne and 2Chains executed a “performance” which I thought was more like yelling and jumping—I fast forwarded through their nonsense–and therefore I have no more description.

My favorite performance of the night was by far Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj’s new song “Girl on Fire.” They both killed it per usual but what made this performance exceptionally unique was Gabby Douglas (all-around gold medalist in woman’s gymnastics) flipping around on stage. This song sends a positive message and the fact that they included this role model for so many young girls on stage with them was pretty amazing. c.
