My god, Winston, is that infernal sun still giving my buttocks that entirely too cool smirk?!


Rap in the 1980s: True innovators define the genre. Full of over the top personalities and brimming with machismo, rap makes its mark as way more than just a fad.

Rap in the 1990s: Dynamic lyricism and old school funk and soul samples paint a vivid picture of inner city life, from gangbangers to street philosophers.

Rap in the 2000s: Glossily produced bling rappers pour champagne on glossier asses. Party anthems like Nelly's "Shake ya Tailfeather" transcend cultural boundaries.

Rap in 2010s: Artists like J. Cole, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar bring introspection and adult themes to street wise storytelling.

Rap now: 20 year olds dressed in hand-me downs die from Benzo overdoses while slurring into an Iphone 5 microphone.

Such a good sketch. Whats funny about the whole 80s rap personas is that cities like NYC were waaaay more dangerous back then.

every new rapper is not yet old enough to drink but is somehow already a domestic abusing drug trafficker and home invader and is rumored to have statutory raped the "cash me outside" girl. their biggest hit is called "$$$$DICKMEAL (ho shoe fukas)", their stage name is lil bussyh000le, and it's insensitive for me to be making this joke because they just died of a drug overdose

Rap back then: Go to the emergency room after shooting yourself in the face. Take a picture with Scarface and Willie D with your eyeball all kinds of hosed up. Make that picture an album cover.

Rap now: Go to the emergency room after eating too many Flamin' Hot Cheetos.

I'm really curious about this nihilistic ironic relationship with sex these ppl have. Like you can't really be horny if you're on Benzos constantly right? I guess maybe being 20 overpowers the Benzos

Well, there goes our grant money.



Abusing benzos for long periods of time can result in cognitive problems later in life. If these rappers don't OD they are gonna have bad dementia when they get old.

Incorrect.
There is a poo poo load of bad 80's and 90's rap out there and some excellent stuff in the 2000's and beyond. Thank you for listening.
