« You Are Tearing My Apart, Lisa! -- The Dubstep Remix | Main | Elbow Shoot Off Fifth Album, build a rocket boys! »

December 23, 2010



I have no idea what you even mean by 'the whole Brooklyn thing.' Moreover, if you actually put some effort into understanding Das Racist's lyrics, you might realize they're more deliberate, insightful, and talented than you give them credit for. They've expressed more refined views on music as a whole, politics, and culture than you yourself have (evidenced by the above blog post). Plus, the production on their most recent album was top-notch (see: Diplo, Scoop Deville, Kassa Overall, Devo Springsteen).
You make sweeping generalizations, bawse, and you're incredibly self-indulgent (no one cares about your email inbox). Based on your 'Hall of Fame' and the music you cover on this blog, it's easy to tell that your judgments about Hip-Hop (and thus Waka Flocka and Das Racist) are about as intelligent as Vampire Weekend's lyrics.


Stay in your comfort zone, or else move outside it in a well-informed way.

P.S. I notice that all the musicians pictured in the Music Snobbery logo are white, and nearly all the music you cover is made by white musicians. Diversify, shun!

privilege denying dude

i hate das racist too! racism is so mundane. and totally played out. we're in a post-racial society! they should rap about cats.


I so want to shake the hand of whoever wrote that about Mike Posner. Awesome! I never understood the hype about him and I've always said he looked like a JT wannabe!


Bat for Lashes is in my banner, she's half-Pakistani. She replaced M.I.A. I'm half Hispanic, but I know, I still suck for writing about whoever I want.




and, @dizzy, what's wrong with vampire weekend's lyrics? 'You've got ten fingers and you're going to use them all' is a pretty good philosophy if you ask me... If you're so into the 'worst bands' (and so not into all the best bands) on this site, why are you reading it???
