Apathy “We’re Gonna Kill You”
[audio:http://www.rappersiknow.com/media/apathy/We’re Gonna Kill You.mp3]
When I first started taking rapping seriously… there was a system of checks and balances, to prevent “wack mc’s” from fucking up music. And if I’m sending you this mp3 right now, it’s because I respect you, and I know you know that.
Rappers/MC’s had to be nice and have skill. Now… that has been replaced with having buzz, and blogging and shit, without paying dues. Fuck that.
I don’t know when it became taboo to diss wack MC’s… but that needs to be brought back.
People confused dissing rappers… with hating. And that’s crazy.
Much love… much respect… please pass this around to everyone you know… or throw it up on your sites, if you have one.
