Everybody is talking about racism and/or appropriation and all that in regards to Keith Ape‘s “It G Ma” basically ripping OG Maco‘s “U Guessed It“, which … go ahead, whatever.
The real problem is that it fucking sucks and people think it’s good. I saw “It G Ma” when it was released and closed it, cause it sucks and I got second-hand embarrassment.
The sooner trap beats die, the better off humanity will be, generally speaking. And this going viral will ensure that it never dies for a while in Korea, so this is just depressing.
Anyway, to anybody wondering, this is why Zico does “Tough Cookie“, and this is why the netizen response to Jessi‘s act on ‘Unpretty Rapstar‘ is generally that she’s so “hip-hop” and so “gangsta”. They do it cause it works and people are stupid.
*Cue A Million ‘Hip Hop Heads’ Saying A Variation Of ‘IT GO HARD THO’*
The equivalent of saying about Korean ballads “the mood is nice” even though the lyrics suck, the vocals are glorified screaming, and it bores you to tears.
