Craig posted a link yesterday to the latest Bang Da Hitta (and Young Pappy video) on Everyblock. Can't understand what they're rapping about. Guess these guys never heard of Kenny Rogers. "Know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when your sittn' at the table. There'll be time enough for countin' when the (drug?) dealin's done." Lots of money waving. Better to put that money to work for you instead of flashing it around.
None of this behavior follows common sense. The antonym of taunt is commendation. Positive hip hop would have lyrics like, much respect to blah,blah,blah.
Is Mr. Rogers (Coming Soon) - Philip Mcgregor Rogers?
The Youtube video uses a stretched out screengrab of this "famous" unelevated shot of Glenwood Ave (looking north) from 2013.
The ensuing discussion on Everyblock is pretty standard for current internet parley. Snipes, satire, and smart alecks.
A309vision - this videographer's style involves filming rappers confabulating in front of prominent civic structures at night or inside their apartments. Its a beginning. Maybe with enough of these recordings under his belt he will branch off into something else more artistic or meritorious.
Putting two or three of these videos on in the background makes for an amusing mish mash.
In case you didn't know the restoration of Glenwood and Wayne avenues' brick roads are still in limbo until Ward 49 finds the funding.
