30 Day Blogging challenge. Day 6: Your view on mainstream music

Mainstream music sucks nowadays. I can't say I hate it, because you've heard me singing that "Friday" song many times.

See, mainstream music has one purpose: To make you addicted to a song with no particular meaning or message, to buy the record and perhaps even go to the show. The whole point of it is entertainment...and perhaps to teach you a few new dance moves (you a jerk! you a jerk!)! You fall for it, then laugh about it years later. I think it's addictive yet irrelevant, and I can't lie and say I haven't fell for it many, many times. It's okay to fall for it sometimes but if as an ADULT that's all you listen to....something's wrong. 

There is nothing new with the fuckery involved with mainstream music! Let me give you
a little historic reminder:

-Barbie Girl
-Spice Girls: Wannabe
-J-Kwon: Tipsy
-Soulja Boy: Superman
-Teach me how to dougie
-Fatman Scoop ft Faith Evans etc...: Love like this before (If you ever wanna see me sit down at a party, play this song)
-Rebecca Black: Friday

Some of the mainstream music is so ignorant, it's disgusting. It's even more disgusting that I have it on my phone and listen to some of it everyday, damnit. 2 Chaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Here are a couple of videos (including a tutorial) and below, the lyrics of Soulja Boy's "Crank that" song. Please, if you see any deep meaning for this song, leave a comment under this post. I would love that. After all, there are over 123 million views on YouTube #SMH


Soulja boy I tell 'em
Hey I got a new dance fo you all called the soulja boy
You gotta punch then crank back three times from left to right
(Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh yeeeeaaaah!)

[Chorus: x2]
Soulja boy off in this hoe
Watch me crank it
Watch me roll
Watch me crank that soulja boy
Then super man that hoe
Now watch me you
(crank that soulja boy)
Now watch me you
(crank that soulja boy)
Now watch me you
(crank that soulja boy)
Now watch me you
(crank that soulja boy)

[Verse 1:]
Soulja boy off in this hoe
Watch me lean and watch me rock
Super man that hoe
Then watch me crank that Robocop
Super fresh, now watch me jock
Jocking on them haters man
When I do that soulja boy
I lean to the left and crank that thang
(now you)
I'm jocking on your bitch ass
And if we get the fighting
Then I'm cocking on your bitch ass
You catch me at your local party
Yes I crank it everyday
Haters getting mad cause
"I got me some bathing apes"

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 2:]
I'm bouncing on my toe
Watch me super soak that hoe
I'm gonna pass it to Arab
Then he's gonna pass it to don loc (loc)
Haters wanna be me
Soulja boy, I'm the man
They be looking at my neck
Saying it's the rubber band man (man)
Watch me do it (watch me do it)
Dance (dance)
Let get to it (let get to it)
Nope, you can't do it like me
Hoe, so don't do it like me
Folk, I see you tryna do it like me
Man that shit was ugly

[Chorus x4]

Aim to clean off in this hoe
Watch me crank it
Watch me roll
Watch me crank that Roosevelt
And super soak that Hoe [x10]

Aim to fresh up in this bitch
Watch me shuffle
Watch me jig
Watch me crank my shoulder work
Super man that bitch [x6]
