I’ve been listening to hip hop all morning. I love it. My husband pretty much sticks to Eminem, Dr Dre and D12 if I want to listen to hip hop when he’s home. He’s a dub step guy. So I usually play other things during the day. Mos Def right now. Common and Tupac earlier.
After this though I am putting on Eminem. Or Em as I call him. An oldie but one of my faves (the first cd I bought of his music,The Eminem Show). My younger daughter introduced me to his music. One of his songs, “Without Me” came on the radio. It had a great beat and it was so funny. My daughter told me I would probably like the album and she wanted me to hear the song “Square Dance” So, as I often do, I wanted to hear more. So I went out and bought it. I always want the explicit albums not the one bleeped out or whatever they do. Em uses a lot of bad words, but they don’t hurt or bother me.
When I’m mad I sometimes like to listen to Em. He admits mistakes, gets mad at a lot of the things I used to get mad about back then and again now even more. Actually, when I’m kind of irked shall we say, I like to listen to my husband’s hip hop folder. “White America”- Em, “Business”- Em, “Get Back”- Ludacris “Get My Gun”- D12, there is Dr. Dre on there but I can’t remember what. Guess I haven’t been that upset/mad in a while.
Here’s the cleaned up version of “Without Me”. I didn’t know what the WP rules were on these “bad” words so I wimped out and used the clean version.
Lots to learn here on WP and lots more to learn on my hip hop journey.
