And LL Cool J should apologize for having entered your girlfriend’s placenta

Standard

So the latest “controversy” is about BeWhy, because he won Show Me the Money 5, so now he’s famous and it’s time to look for reasons to hate him.

This is one of these particularly stupid things because it’s people getting their panties in a wad over a lyrical theme that is extremely common in hip-hop: BeWhy said his flow was so very awesome that even lesbians get hot over it.

Of course these are HOMOSEXUAL HATE LYRICS!!!!! and not, you know, pretty standard in hip-hop, in which a male rapper’s flow is often so very awesome that even [lesbians, your girlfriend, your mother, any other unlikely/inappropriate woman, all women without exception, straight men] are compelled to whip off their clothing and throw themselves on the dude in a sexual frenzy.

It’s such a common theme that it was even parodied by Flight of the Conchords.

If you’re wondering why it’s a common lyrical theme in hip-hop music, I’d suggest some research into the history of African-American music, in particular “easy rider” blues songs–these lyrics are meant to be over-the-top and comical, not as something to be taken seriously.

This kind of “controversy” is why I wish K-Pop fans (OK, fine, the dumber and more fetishistic K-Pop fans) would stay the fuck away from Korean hip-hop: They’re astonishingly ignorant of the music and can’t seem to understand that not everything is intended as a Sunday school lesson.
