i waz watching a show on bbc 4 yesterday, it was a "most importants decade in music" debate between da hip nerds dat write about culture and generally bore working class/normal people to death. anyway, dey had 5 z listers, each of whom would argue 4 each decade, da 50's all the way to da 90's. and there was a 4 man jury of intellectual attention whores like paul morley ( serioulsey, who da fuck is dude he on my tv screen every fucking day intellectuallisning crap). noddy holder was part of the jury so that was ok, at least he did shit in his day.
anyway, so when the 2 chciks ( why am i suprise that it would be women who totally jumble up hip hop relevance) came and each did their 80's and 90's recital, i was like damn, aint hip hop the biggest movement of the last quarter century, and u nimcompooks still talking about madonna and oh so ironic britpop and raves. does anyone of the laymen actually remember raves? do they remember NEw Order? do thyey remembr so called dance musics political movement ( news to me, i thought they was all just smack heads).
the 90's was even worse, this oh so obvious feminist who dreses like miss marple and looks like she read tarot cards 4 a living stared talking about grunge, britpop, hanson wtf? spice girls? wtf? beck and all the other shit that did not last like the great hip hop invention. all this shit that these people championed burned brightly for a minute and den, where dey at?.
like seriouly, it aint cool to like hip hop anymore unless u talking to old white people to make urself feel hip. in da uk anyway, i dont knwow about over in da states. like these motherfuckers over here dont even acknoledge the shit except as tokenism. its like a group of nerds just get together to self indulge their self, just like sound opinions message board. its like, u cant talk about boxing without talking about muhammad ali, u cant talk about soccer without talkin bout maradona, so how the hell u gonna talk about 80's and 90;s music without talking about hip hop?
