*This probably should go under "Humor." It's not to be taken seriously. Writing rap lyrics, or hip-hop, is simple, fun, and funny. I needed a break.

I have nothing to defend
You cannot possibly offend me
Youíre not me but feel free
You donít know what I see
Itís uncommon to common sense
To take offense to certain words you heard
When itís the same light in every word
I donít pick the ones preferred
Your dull pointís been served
But it mustíve been preserved
Iíll never get the credit I deserve
Iím an author with arthritis
And everyone caught Bullshititis
There ainít nothing I canít write
Having short sighted sight donít make it right
I wonít bite my tongue
I would rather bite yours
Stab you in every pore and pour lard on all your sores
I rather be the ďbadĒ guy
Having ďgoodĒ guys wishing I would die
Because I can make you cry
Make you wipe them dry and poke you in the eye
To see if itís alive
You hardly see enough to survive
Your writing makes you seem shorter
Iím swinging much harder
Aimlessly angry like the fire starter
When you ainít got no water
Youíre panties are in a bunch
Itís just a hunch
When people read my writing and lose their lunch
Iíll finance a club over your grave to dance
Like the concepts in my head when I write these rants
They make an appearance to enhance your religious trance
My birth can be debated
Satan mustíve masturbated and ejaculated
On Earth while aggravated
Maybe thatís why Iím so hated
Youíre safe from my predated plot
I will not take a wife Ďcause I never had a long life
Because of these rants, you see?
Writerís rights have been wronged
Wilmot, de Sade, and Crowley among
Other heroes unsung
Iím a sex fiend like any other libertine
Drug addicted alcoholic since I was a teen
Back when I was mean
I lambaste it into your head so fast
You forget you never asked
Iím not sorry
About my history or his story
Things can get worse
I can write another verse

Hip Hop
Seeing how I am a fan of hip hop, I have to disagree that it is easy to write. True hip hop artists are poets such as Tupac. But I digress. I did find this funny. Especially the last two lines where you poke fun at yourself. This a big change up from your other work, but not bad nonetheless;)

Let me clean the streets and clear the air. Tupac among other select hip hop artists wrote great lyrics. Personally, I believe that for true artists like that, it just came to them. It just flowed out of them. Writing is a gift, a talent. Being that it was so easy to write this, I felt that it couldn't have been very difficult for a person writing raps daily to write. I have no rhythm and I can rap, outside of my own skull. That takes a different kind of talent.

Still Cool
No harm. No fowl. I don't want you to think I was knocking you because I wasn't. There are plenty of rappers with absolutely no true skills and no true heart. Like you, I believe ones such as Pac breathed the essence of rhyme. He, along with Nas, Biggie, and others are true hip hop. So I suppose the streets have been cleaned and the air has been cleared. Thanks for the correction. ONE.

On a light note
This was really entertaining and I liked it a lot. But I see that even in your humor you aim to offend. It's great.

Rap Lyrics
Of course it's simple, easy, fun to write rap lyrics. But, as you indicate in your correction, it's not as easy to write GOOD rap lyrics -- writing in most media is easy; writing well in any media is not. I think thatw as your point.

You were wading into trouble with this, because when people like or identify with something, they surround it with all manner of mythological crap and react defensively when it's mocked.

But it NEEDS to be mocked, as everything does, so good for you. I can count on you to never be cowed!

I can see the humor in this work and can see where you were having fun. It reminds me of the expository writing I did as an English minor (not major). I think that expository work is what keeps our potential rolling. Usually I can go back later and find a serious subject in work like that.

Having said that, I do need to add that this is most likely a "mock-up" of another form of rap, not Hip-Hop. All rap is not Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop is very socially conscious and the theme usually has an undertone of the "oneness and humanity" of people. There are other forms of rap music which exploit the culture they come from. This is most likley what you were poking a jab at. This is like mocking Three Six Mafia or Lil John and saying it's really Mos Def or Talib Kweli you're talking about. IF this were meant to be a serious work, I would have said you should understand your subject better. It's not serious though so thanks for making that clear.
