I couldn't tell you how much time me an my true metal buddies tried to reproduce that song. One of the many reasons I cannot believe how many people can be divided about metal and rap. Like two different species or something. To me? It is the same thing. Cultural music depending on your culture, I suppose. In Detroit, you'll find as much rap as metal (depending on the bar, I suppose...I am a native). That is why Run-DMC and Aerosmith was such a natural meld to me. I honestly didn't thing twice about it. Damn, look at DMC's shoes. LOL!!
Explains why I take any sort of racism to heart, I suppose. I grew three streets out of Detroit proper (three streets out of the race riots of '67, IOW) and can't fathom the ideas of anyone with racial problems of any kind. I actually thought that rap and metal would come closer than it actually did, in fact. Guessed wrong, I suppose...this vid sure inspired me in my youth, though.
THAT was damn scary! HA!! Excuse me while I laugh my ass off!
I agree that M got old (another Detroit boy) but I did like some of his songs because, at LEAST, he could rap in his very limited manner (mainly dealing with his life which was 10 miles from mine).
Now how about this to shut down the tread tonight. HAAAAA! "THE HUMAN BEAT-BOX!" RIP. He was interesting, if nothing more. I have seen other vids before but this one got me laughing out loud.

Old school had some talent but not my cuppa! The ones today, I would love to wrap them all in bubble wrap and bounce them from the highest building to see if they make it. I put Emenim at the front of the ball, even though I actually do like a couple things he did. But, for the experiment, he's gotta go!

Nope. Not unil we hear the reactions! HAAAAA!!! "New York, New York, big city of dreams." Oh, how I would like to find a good version of it.
"Now you kiss the kid, put down the lid and think about what you just did. DON'T PUSH ME...!" I have a very hard time believing that rappers have NO talent. Old school. I say nothing about the newbies. (Quoting Message by spapad from Friday, April 16, 2010 10:49:13 PM)
