Why is the rap game filled with so many fake rappers?

I mean like rappers that all they rap, about is weed, women, cars, and brags about it. I think its sad, that it’s true.

Every rapper has a moment in their career where they rap about weed, women & cars. Even your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.

What is fake about that?

And this topic has been beaten into the ground, b. You must be new here.

So its fake for a rapper to talk about weed, women, and cars, when those are prominent parts of their lives? You would prefer them pretend like their someone else to be “real”?

Another Rick Ross thread?

It’s not that I prefer them to rap like someone their not, but I’m sayin why is it thats all they talk about, I understand the fact that its part of their lives, but why rap about it everytime. And yes, i’m new here.

Because let’s be real we all want women and cars. I get where you are coming from. The game is definetly over saturated with bullshit, and all music is these days too. Every now and then there’s that good artist or song that comes up and ppl will pay attention, but that hardly ever happens. I’ve talked about this before and someone was like “Well Marvin Gaye made Ego Trippin' and that’s about money and women and cars”, but my reply was “That’s not something that he ALWAYS did.” There’s a difference between braggin every now and then and EVERY song on the radio or just popular songs in general are all about that.

Well, if you’re asking why do they brag about stuff they don’t actually do, than the better question is why is this world full of “fakes”.

Yeah, it’d be better if you didn’t use the word “fake”, because that just ruins the point of your post. But I agree, I don’t really like the fact that lots of music these days is bragging. I remember hearing an interview where Slug talked about it. He basically said, “do I, as a grown man need to brag to boost my own confidence?” It’s not like he is insecure about himself or something…

I know a couple of rappers who are really cyborgs
