it's so... beautiful

The nominated tune "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from "Hustle & Flow" with music and lyric by Jordan Houston ("Juicy Jay"), Cedric Coleman ("Freysier Boy") and Paul Beauregard ("Deejay Paul") has, by my count, 10 repeated words which would not pass network clearances. They are "fuck," "shit" and "niggaz." ---army archerd
Hip-hop is such beautiful music. I've been far too.... niggardly in my praise for this kind of art.


A draggin' and a shootin' is in order!

Rap is the purest form of SHIT there is or ever will be.
I'd rather listen to a catfight than that God-awful garbage.

It ain't for anybody who has at least half a brain..

It's street poetry...
Poetry is NOT music and neither is that shit.

Grabbing your dick and not playing any instruments, except to scratch up albums, is not performing music.
It's grabbing your dick and scratching up albums.
Which is kinda stupid and not at ALL "musical".

(And, just by the way... it's not "ya'll"... It's "y'all")

Hey! Watch your language! Niggardly indeed; you could be sentenced to mandatory sensitivity training.

I remember they fired a white aide to the Washington DC mayor for using that "N" word. Political correctness is running amok these days. Niggardly, of course, means "miserly" or "stingy".

I tend to agree with Stevie. I also wonder just when in the hell sampling someone elses music moved from being a copyright infringement, to being recoginized as some kinda musical genius. To each his own, just keep the shit in your own car...I don't want to hear it in mine when I'm at a stoplight next to your ass.

Shit is always shit.
Music is music.
There are a lot of types of music . . .
You don't have to guess where I fall . . .

mu∑sic ( P ) Pronunciation Key (myzk)
1. The art of arranging sounds in time so as to produce a continuous, unified, and evocative composition, as through melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre.
2. Vocal or instrumental sounds possessing a degree of melody, harmony, or rhythm.

OK, shit can have rhythm.
It's still shit.

You forgot "rhyme". OK, so some of the "street poetry" rhymes. Big deal! It all comes down to shit or shinola.
Shit?= 3 words: 50 Fucking Cent!
Shinola?=3 words also: Johnny Fucking Mercer!

Hey, MRITE...

I popped in over at Xanga and tried to leave you a comment, but it's been so long since I've been there, they wanted me to register since I couldn't remember my password-n-shit.

Dude... we have GOT to get you outta there.
Blogger would be a huge improvement, plus I have another idea... I have an inquiry or two to make about it.

I'll letcha know what I come up with...

(P.S. You look like Clapton when he was younger and healthy , by the way... Very nice.)
