EPR and DEE MC comments are terrible for hip-hop(Hustle)
Dee MC comments to LXSH:
DEE MC told Lxsh that he needs to step out of comfort zone. Kyun Bhai? If an artist stays within his comfort zone and makes dope music that’s good enough for the scene. I’m not looking for a multi-purpose Naptol product, just an artist who can glow in zones they are comfortable in is fine.
Shit that’s made outside someone’s comfort zone is mostly terrible. Insisting that it’s a must-do especially early stage in career is outright bad advice. Many legends internationally have stuck to their grind and stayed within comfort zone and have created history. Don’t force people to be a commodity.
EPR comments to QK:
The cringe moment here is obviously a man telling a woman who is singing about domestic abuse that “she also needs to sing about marital rape” to win his points. Would he tell a Black rapper – “oh you are singing about poverty that’s cool, but not enough, I think you also need to include police brutality in this song”. G**nd me goli padegi.
Conscious rap is not an essay writing competition, where you take a topic and write as many points as possible about it. This kind of thinking is a disease that Rohan Cariappa style of analysis (points system) has perpetuated in the scene. Conscious rap is about reflecting social concerns through your experience (or with empathy, someone else’s) and making the audience feel moved and enraged. She did that very well for the most part. The hook especially was haunting and impactful.
