Is His Mirror Broken?: Snoop Dogg Upset @ Lack of “Quality,” “Substance” Rap Artists

By Debbie Schlussel
Yesterday, repeat criminal/rapper Snoop Dogg a/k/a Calvin Broadus turned 36. That’s 4 in hip hop years and 9 in pimp years (with apologies to 4- and 9-year-olds throughout the planet).
And in his “old” age, the pimp/ex-drug dealer/all-around renaissance scumbag is whining about the new hip hop artists who are invading his territory and not reco’nizin’ or representin’. After all, unlike Snoop’s “high brow fare,” they don’t produce “substance material” and “quality album[s]” and won’t “stand the test of time like myself.” Only in America is this kind of chutzpah by a glaring piece of garbage celebrated:

They’re not making substance material – they’re not really going into creating a sound.


“Substance Material . . . Quality” That Will “Stand the Test of Time”?!

It’s all about making the hot song for right now, but the artists who will stand the test of time like myself are about making records, not songs. You got to make a quality album so you can hold people’s attention. It’s like a movie. If you make a movie that got (only) one good scene, ain’t nobody gonna go see it.

Uh-huh. Like the multiple “good scenes” in Snoop Dogg’s work. My favorite one will be him doing community service for illegal weapons possession. If only there were a scene behind bars for the multiple offender.
That’s a “movie” with more than one good scene.
Lest you forget, here’s some of Snoop Dogg’s “substance material” and “quality” that he delusionally believes will “stand the test of time” (Warning: Explicit Language):

Exit Question: Since Snoop got sentenced to picking up trash, can he lift himself off the ground and into a black plastic 40-gallon bag?
Why Ax [sic] Why?” Juice and gin, my friends.

Your other reader was right: you are truly funny! “That’s 4 in Hip Hop years”
and profound:
“They’re not really going into creating a sound.”
It seems once Hip Hop became popular (selling more than Rock), about 10 years ago(?), it lost it’s creative edge. I liked some of Snoop’s first records. It was more hardcore. It’s become some of the worst popular music ever. Or at least the popular stuff. From the Jena Six to Fitie Cent it’s pretty depressing. I say that as one of those white guys (musician) who always took my cues from the incredible creativity which comes from young black people and The Great Tree Of Black Music that so dominates music world-wide.
Right now I don’t think even Bill Cosby can turn things around.

My question is: can someone please show me where the creativity is in RAP music? Close to twenty years or so I have been hearing this crap from various sources such as television commercials, Movies, NBA games (my kids) and other media and I just don’t get it. I grew up in the sixties and loved Rock, Mowtown, Blues, R&B, even Country every now and then. Where in the hell is the uniqueness of Rap? When Stevie Wonder sang “Big Brother” and “Living For The City” it didn’t get any more eloquent. When War sang “The World Is A Ghetto” the lyrics painted a picture. What can Eminem, Snoop or 50 Cent, or whoever say about being in the “hood” that will ever top that? Instead these shit-stains sing about Ho’s, pimps, murder and gangstas. It doesn’t hold up now, and never will. In one-hundred years they’ll still be playing Sixtes Motown and RAP will be in the shit-pile where it belongs.

I will never understand why anyone would listen to this crap let alone calling it music.
The lyrics are an attempt to rhyme at a second grade level of ghetto inspired bastardized English. It astounds me that anyone would think this is music. What kind of talent does it take to run a drum machine and have a thug grab his crotch while trying to rhyme words at sub second grade level of education.
The original rap crap was born in the prison system in our country by a bunch of rapists, murderers, pimps ,robbers and gang bangers.
I blame the record company executives for providing a platform for these thugs to market this nonsense to Middle America. They mo longer have any moral compass and have aided and abetted these douche bags that make obscene amounts of money on depravity.
They have glorified and romanticized illiterate criminals that think raping women and getting intoxicated is something to proud of as long as it rhymes with the drone of an electronic drum machine or running a record back and forth amplified by 1000 watts in the background.
Calling these ass clowns “Artists” is a slap in the face of people that actually know how to play a musical instrument and can speak the English language.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Does anyone remember when Cynthia McKinney tried to pass a resolution in Congress to have some sort of national holiday for Tupac Shakur? I’m serious.

Cynthia McKinney. Oh my Lord! There’s an entirerly different subject. I read on HotAir.com that she’s planning on moving here to Kalifornia to establish residence. That means she’s gonna run for office. Stay up in San Francisco Cynthia. We’ve got enough idiots here in Los Angeles.

And in my case, I’m no longer black now just for hating this so-called music. Yeah, people are suprised that a young guy like me doesn’t “get it”.

It’s too bad there aren’t enough modern day, young Al Greens, Bill Withers’s, Louis Armstrongs, or Maynard Fergusons.
As to Rich, I think even Cynthia McKinney would be better than Maxine Waters or Lynne Woosley.
