[LOL] NSFW: What Hip Hop Taught Me

Alright, I have to admit that I’m not the biggest hip hop/rap fan. It’s just not a genre that really appeals to me. I like hearing instruments interact with one another. I like big dynamics in my music, from really quiet during the verses to huge “wall of sound” situations during the choruses. Things like that. However, that being said, there are definitely hip hop groups that I’m pretty okay with putting on now and again.

But one problem I have with mainstream hip hop/rap is the misogyny, the glorification of violence, and the seemingly unwarranted need to boast and brag about the wealth of the artists. Sorry, none of that is anything that I find myself remotely able to connect with.

Enter YouTube sensation Jenna Marbles, who has a slightly different way to look at these lyrical themes, one that I find incredibly humorous and well worth sharing. Warning: the video below is chock full of swearing, so don’t go watching this at work.
