so they are basically like ginos in north america I figure in terms of equivalency.


What ginos are here,
italin/medateranian first and second generation, they dress ultra contempary, greasy hair, fascinate over cars, girls and dance music.


I love them.

Well bottom line is that rap ONLY sounds good with a north american accent, Sorry, but it's true, and rap in other languages? forget it, french, japanese etc. it always sounds ridiculous to me.

Overall, I agree, but I do enjoy a good rap with a little Jamaican patois, and some latin raps are ill. Still American, though. Mexico is North America. Is Jamaica considered N.A.?

sometime thinks americans are kinda blind to how big hip hop is wordwide, nearly every country in world has some kinda hip hop scene big or small. when i was travelling in eastern european people loved their hip hop, and good shit too like the wu, dilated and mop were big everywhere i went.

but the problem with uk hip hop as with all other hip hop scenes is that for every amazing act they are surrounded by a thousand idiots who are willing to spend money on promoting themselves above and beyond the good shit. when i was 14 or so i got really into UK hip hop but these days there doesnt seem to be as much activity. shit even Skinnyman is on grime beats these days.

imo on the best moments highlighting the cream of UK hip hop:

Naw, french is without a doubt the second best language for rap (after english I guess). Regarding the accent, I can appreciate a lot of UK rappers. What I can't feel is people who rap in english but with a swedish accent or some shit like that.

I've yet to hear any spanish rap(per) I thought was any good too (no offense to spanish speaking people around :D)
