    Hip-Hop & Surfing

    Very uncommon to be see hip-hop in a surf film... How come? I'm sure a lot of you guys aren't a fan of hip-hop but I don't mind it and I think it would be sick to see it put in some more surf films. Just my $0.02... What do you guys think

    I like some hip-hop. The kind that actually includes lyrical wit, skills, etc. But I dunno, surfing and hip-hop just seem weird together. No idea why but it just doesn't seem to work in my opinion. I'd rather hear some sweet garage rock tunes or something like that instead.

    Yo Pump and Koki you dawgs are trippin

    Rap is the most talented genre in music history. Kanye West is a musical genius, He says so, himself.

    Dudes, it is so advanced that you don't need to play instruments; don't need any knowledge of music theory; don't need to be able to sing; don't need no melody; and in today's rap offerings, you don't need any basic amount of cleverness with words, don't need no flow, and don't need any talent whatsoever.

    Forget fretting chords, just push a few buttons on a computer for your music. Then dig out that 3rd grade poetry project you had, make sure the end of each line is a simplistic rhyme, act like you used to sell drugs on the streets, mention that you might be affiliated with the Bloods, and collect the money.

    Oh say, the word "Ni$$a" a lot, even if you are a punk Canadian who played a paralyzed dude in Degrassi The Next Generation who now plays tough guy rap dude. Oh yeah, repeat words alot ...over and over again, it fills space and keeps you from having to come up with another word that rhymes with "block." You've already used "sock," "cock," and "rock." This stuff get tough, dawgs.

    Kanye's a **** but he's dope as a musician and a lyricist (idk about Yeezus though). He, and many other hip hop artists do a lot a of really amazing things with words and music. Plus, you gotta remember that a ton of amazing musicians aren't trained in music theory. Rap and hip hop have taken a lot of elements from jazz and blues over the years as well.

    It's really a genre that's growing and improving quickly. You should check it out Kendrick, Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean. People are doing cool ****, man. And maybe even try to go into listening to it without your preconceived (and uninformed) notions.

    Kanye is not a musician. You need to play an instrument to be a musician. Kanye's lyrics and "rhymes" are friggin pathetic. They are so weak. I like when the he exaggerates the end, rhyming word of a line. That's killer. I have no idea why the dude is critically acclaimed. I guess because music and pop culture is in such sad state that people have to hype something. Music sucks. Movies suck. Everything sucks.

    I don't watch movies anymore until they come on basic cable. What's the point. But I did rent that TED thang a few months ago. Heard it was good. That was THE WORST movie I have ever seen. I gave up twenty minutes into the horrible piece of garbage. Ok, a teedy bear comes to life and then it drinks, pulls tubes, and cusses in a Boston accent. Wow, friggin fantastic. Oh that Hangover movie y'all love so much was average. It is in no way the cinematic masterpiece people make it out to be.

    Hey Robber, I don't know how young you are, but raps been around well over thirty years, dawg. And the stuff in the 1990's BLOWS today's stuff away. So actually, the genre is regressing. The dude's today have absolutely no talent. None.

    And Robber, I'm never uninformed, I know everything except a few things I don't know.

    Zeke Lau Volcom's Strange Brains to Aesop Rock is good I think. Just fits.

    Okay man, I get that. I'm 20. I've been playing music since I was 10, and it's probably the one thing I know best along with surfing. I've studied jazz and music theory pretty extensively. I'm also pretty into poetry (probably why I like rap, huh?). Kanye was definitely a musician and a poet. He amazingly clever and imaginative things with words (maybe he doesn't use your vernacular, but neither does Shakespeare). College Dropout and Late Registration were dope. Listen to Acid Rap by Chance the Rapper. Its on his website for free.

    Also there are plenty of good movies, you just have to do a little sifting to find them. I can recommend you some. I'm stoned and stuck in class. It's history of the 60s. We just watch movies. Perfect summer class, right?
