I suppose, in Nietzsches use of term decadent means decay. so decadents is a person of societal decay.
idiosyncrasy is persons own personality as it were seperate from everyone else.
morality is a blight that is placed within us all to go against it based on our own character. kind of like 'would you commit a crime, if you didnt know there was one to commit.'
each person is instilled with this blight (morality)and will act itself out of spite of this morality, based on character, circumstance etc, which is in spite of living of a life free from the constraints enforced to make the person commit which not what they would of known before. especially within the decadence of society which Neech foresaw a long time ago, infact he said it has started years before during the renaissance.

sorry I hate explaining philosophy. I may be wrong but thats my interpretation. he hated 'morality'.

I love hip hop though, and it feels cooler when its raw as fuck

how fucking cool was it when bobby schmurdas crew turned out to be actual grimy shooters dressed in g star

luckily im safely middle class and dont have to think about that shit at all, so its all entertainment.

What's more ignorant tho, being a guardian commenter going on about how horrible gangster music/worldstar is or celebrating it without having to take part in the actual hood life?

I hear completely. Im a big fan of hip hop and get the reality makes me interested vibe. its living life vicariously through others. when I was a teenager it used to make me think I was a badass. I know it does to a lot of others who arent necessarily about that life so I do wonder about the overall impact it has on society.

round here shit happens and the people that do it I think are mindless, untrustworthy scummy fucks. machetes, stabbings, people brutalised to prove a point of whos turf it is. its not the worst of the worst of areas but I avoid these people like the plague. the idea that if they could spit a sweet sixteen then id idolise (for want of a better word) them is absurd. but thats what it is.
and they may have charisma and a hasrh background story but the truth is they perpetuate the misery bestowed upon them (and others in the struggle) by partaking in this. Im not pointing blame. or saying theres an easy way out, if any. just that innocent people get hurt often and if its a talentless junkie we'll hate them. but you got bars your cool, is a mental attitude that may need addressing.

yeah

It seems to me though the dudes who make it in rap tend to be pretty level-headed guys. Like there's more of a cool, pragmatic "I'm gonna make it out of the hood" mentality. Which makes sense. Like you watch interviews with Waka Flocka or something, whos so turned up and aggro its almost cartoon monster in his music, seems like a completely sound guy. He just understands what emotion people are looking for.

Does that make it worse or better though? You can't fault someone for doing what they can to live better, and damn, the dude has made some good fucking music. But if it's perpetuating violence, would it almost be better if it was some guy who seemed like he couldn't know better?

i always got the vibe in hip hop and grime that the people that become successful are often not the biggest roadmen in reality

I'm guessing the root is at a need to instill a warrior mentality into teenage males. america is great for that as it needs to justify its aggression worldwide and recruit domestically. we are all subject to an idea that to be male includes violence. i think in american culture its more so. gangster rap is a perfect accompaniment to this so no wonder it sells well.
It's difficult to see the direct influence that a culture that perpetuates violence has directly on society seperate from the other factors. like, we can see what a robber does to a families xmas but do we know that the person selling that is an inspiration to, or is inspired by the people making the music saying that selling crack is great andf it gets them the money they need to escape this bleak existence.

there isnt an easy answer, I dont begrudge anyone comfort, wealth or socail mobility.
maybe an idea that commonality amongst people and a society based on happiness amongst ALL its occupants should be sort after. but I guess thats more communism than capitalism and won't be happening anytime soon.

In my imagination I think they might be to scarey to be poster boys.

apparently for this video they went to film in a totally safe spot in western africa. But the videos clearly trying to play off the scaryness factor of DPR Congo or somewhere like that.

Is that a bit dodgy/disrespectful? Like Chronik may be from the hood in london but I doubt hes had to rape his sister or get horribly executed and then drafted to become a child soldier, or something like that that happens in central africa.

tune and video are sick though, if you're not thinking about that shit. It's also definitely meant to be exagerrated to fuck. It's interesting though. Is the hardness arms race logically ending up as associating with some really fucked up people, not street gangs but the mexican cartel, russian mob or african warlords

is it exploitation or an indirect way of bringing attention to strife? I dunno, tune is sick tho :lol:
yeh, the world is a mental place and glamourising the darker sides treads a thin path between an advertsiement and an awareness campaign.
I suppose a sociological report on what people of different demographics took from these videos. a questionairre or analysis before and after to see how attitudes change. I suppose its down to the viewers and the world at large to decide which way the world wants to go though.

Funny that Chronik gets away with pretending to be an African warlord but Death In June using a Tottenkopf on an album sleeve totally shits everyone up
