    @ DPS…what’s your definition of a “hipster”? Just curious to know…
    ^^^^
    The sexy bastards of Hip-Hop.
    lol Did you not see it at the top of my diatribe?
    Hip-hop means diferent things to different people. Where I come from, the more a chick hates the song the doper the cut. (no “Do the Homie”) Not so much gutter or grimey but masculine in tone and content. Hipsters are the metrosexuals of Hip-hop. Not good not bad just thier lane.

    ^^

    I did read your synopsis. I’m still trying to get over you calling O’Shea a “Gangsta Traditionalist.” LOL

    I have a problem saying that the more a chick hates the song the doper the cut. Maybe because I’m me, the more grimier the shit is, I like it. I like songs that the common, simple hip-hop chick fan doesn’t like.

    Yes, I believe that some chicks would gravitate towards artists like Pac Div, Kidz etc. because it’s not intimidating stuff and dudes like it, so it’s like a win-win. But it ain’t like these dudes are wack, so what’s the problem with that…

    I don’t know about that one, granted there’s live at the BBQ and Verbal Intercourse but he got murked by everybody on “John Blaze”, and his best line on Affirmative Action (“…life’s bith but God forbid…”) was something Mega threw to him. And his verse was still the weakest on that joint. And AZ murks him every time (im not one of those crazies that think AZ’s better than Esco overall, but he almost always kills him on their collabos).

    And I think Castro’s dead already. Seriously.

    I actually think Luda’s dope (or at least was until Red Light District). But the mix between Redman and Kanye is a real accurate description of his style.

    daps MTF

    @ m-roc — nah homie that was a different era.

    let’s be honest nobody’s rocking emo jeans and rapping about clapping people (though skateboard p raps about chopping up ki’s with some tight-ass jeans on — i think we can all agree he needs more people).

    in any case, it’s a different time.

    and listen, i fux with the non-baggy movement, i’m just saying hip-hop has always had arbitrary classifications (backpack, gangster, west coast, east coast, cronk, etc.) wearing tight jeans simply puts you in a camp. it’s not a knock, and it’s arbitrary, but it’s out there. it’s not a big deal, it just is what it is.

  29. eskay Says:

    ya’ll know what the fuck we mean by hipster rap, don’t play dumb.

    and I don’t have a problem with it personally, it’s just a means of classification.

    Exactly.

    That’s how sad shit has become. Ninjas will straight disregard any MC because he doesn’t dress up to your “ideal” of what an MC should look like.

    And I think some people fail to, or don’t want to, realize that maybe an MCs style of dress is related to their environment. I rather have these dude staying true to their roots than walking around in a style that really doesn’t appeal to them.

    IMO
    its like the different weird type of rap. rappers that use rock/electronica music in they beats and rap about, certain clothes, shoes, etc.

    its just a different feel and of couse they wear different types of clothes…

    I dig any and all…I always have the open mindedness like fuxie always says…I listen and like what I like…thats it.

    oh of course

    but the process has had enormous growing pains

    mainly because TIs and nerdy asians with no attachment to the culture have tried to flood the market with hot gah-bage

    once shit calms down though (and it already has — you can see that ye and lupe have abandoned the skittles-colored ish for neutrals and all-blacks and grays) and all the shitty, leachy brands fall to the wayside there will be another renaissance

    too many vultures in the game now though — it still needs time to cool off

  38. chea Says:

    @ greens — almost but not quite. since i’m not going to “cuba proper” (i.e. the communist part) and i’m staying only on the military base (which still has ridick beaches btw (it’s fully a part of cuba, just cordoned off)), i’m going via top secret federal government clearance (which took a LONG-ASS time to get b/c i’m muslim and the govt’s background check game is mean). shit, i didn’t even know the treasury dept. gives licenses for people to travel there — must be hard to get. everyone i know who has gone has had to go through canada (which you also mentioned).

  39. $***M-ROC***$ Says:

    @ chea, BIG co-sign…way too many little dime-a-dozen brands in the market right now, and half of them are just T-shirts and bullshit mass-produced accessories with logos slapped on (milkcrate athletics can eat a fat dick). the only people rocking all-over print fluorescent stuff are soulja boy and…soulja boy.

    another thing i noticed is way too many “collaborations” between brands that should really just stay apart. everywhere i look it’s “new collaboration! brand X brand X brand just designed a new toilet bowl cover/calculator case/tea cozy!”

    ^ ahh.. then TECHNICALLY you arent going to Cuba, as Gitmo is US property..although as a nice fuck you to the the US the Cuban government has never cashed any of the “rent” checks the Us paid for use of the land.
    I never made it out to the part of the island, but i heard it was beautiful.

    Dang eskay, you gon’ have cats dedicating whole diss songs to bloggers and/or blogs now huh? lool…guess he took offense to being considered ‘hipster rap?’

    I mean I see where he’s coming from but I can also see how the classification tag is put on him, considering his choice of beats and overall packaging/presentation.

  42. chea Says:

    @ greens – it’s a hybrid. it’s definitely cuban property. when obama shuts the prison camps down and scales back the military base, the land reverts to cuba. smh @ america setting up bases though and deeming it “american soil” lol. fuck outta here with that. i swear sometimes i feel like i’ve never been proud of this country (c) michelle obama with edits for clarity heh heh

    @ m-roc: i’m sure you know about satchelofgravel.com but if not, peep it. shit is right up your alley. and 1,000% co-sigs. for 4 brands to team up on a design on a fucking american apparel t-shirt, gtfoh. these same cats will be milking some other scene next year and another one the year after. and the saddest thing is the design will be biting the gucci colors and the gucci logo. so you know what? thanks very much — i’ll just cop that gucci shirt. shit will look better and last longer and i won’t be sonning myself by buying it. in three years the gucci shirt will still be fly but that “collabo” shit won’t fetch me 8 bucks on ebay.

  46. The Knux Zijn Geen Hipsters (Maar Wie Wel?) « WildStyleFM.nl Says:

    […] Tja. Een dergelijk label kan je veel hype geven maar je ook een uiteindelijke echte doorbraak kosten. Het is een door journalisten verzonnen term die door vrijwel iedere artiest die het opgeplakt krijgt afgewezen wordt. Mickey Factz reageerde op commentaar van op NahRight.com zelfs in een verse; “Should I be classified as Hipster Rap…Nah, right?”. Kidz In The Hall reageerde niet veel anders. […]

  47. Hipster Rap: The Savior Of Hip Hop? « urban horror Says:

    […] Bronx rapper, Mickey Factz, recently caught major feelings from Nah Right’s Eskay when he was classified as a hipster rapper. He went to great pains to categorically reject the notion as did the Kidz In The Hall when confronted with that same notion. Lord knows an aspiring rapper wouldn’t want to be associated with white upper middle class douche bags in thick black framed glasses (Full Disclosure: I wear black framed glasses quite regularly, myself) even though they are often fond of those same thick black framed glasses himself. Hipster rap has become short-hand in recent times for a retro aesthetic that leans on a late ‘80s/early ‘90s sound and culture. The Cool Kids, Wale, The Knux, Jay Electronica, Lupe Fiasco, MickeyFactz and the Kidz In The Hall all have an aesthetic and style that leans heavily on what is being dubbed as “hipster rap.” Pretty much all of them hate it. I’m not necessarily sure that’s a good thing. I think they should embrace it. […]
