Had to do some digging for this one. But if there’s anything I’m good at, it’s digging. (Sometimes I say things like this. Really senseless. Means nothing at all. It’s a bad habit of mine.) But seriously, I’m awesome at digging. Shout out to Richard for sending the heads up, thanks to The Dean’s List for sending the link.
If you’re not up on it, you should check out The Dean’s List. They’re a Boston hip-hop group that falls into that new undefined Chiddy Bang-style category of hip-hop that still needs a name (take it to the comment section if you’ve got suggestions, let’s name that shit!) It’s the type of hip-hop that is more likely to be found in dorm rooms than street corners. In the history of hip-hop, street credibility has always been a factor that determines popularity. These days, rappers like Ash Roth, Chiddy Bang, and even Kanye West have made it cool to paint a different picture and still fit in.
Remember, Kanye West was that dude in a pink polo with a popped collar rapping about dropping out of college. Now look who he collaborates with – coke rappers Clipse, fake coke rapper Rick Ross, still-talking-about-trapping rapper Young Jeezy, et cetera. And the shit sounds good. Alright…I feel a rant coming on. To be continued….
