Tankadins, I require your support in a real life endeavor!

Hey everyone,

This is totally off topic from WoW and paladin tanking, but I manage an indie rapper in real life, Grieves. (http://www.myspace.com/grieves)

We're in a contest to get onto the Lollapalooza 2008 lineup this year, and in order to move to the next rounds, we need votes over the internet!

It only takes about 30 seconds to vote. Just click the link they send you and you're done! They shouldn't send you spam either.

Thanks for your support!

I don't like rap, chevrolets, or chevy chase.

Sorry you had to draw the short straw. :\

So, does anyone else here think that Rap fails to qualify as music?

I'd like to support you, I really would, but I can't bring myself to do anything that promote Rap. :(

Rap, is not music.

Hip hop, depends on the band. Jurassic5 is awesome, but there is also some craptastic stuff out there.

I can argue it either way. For instance, if someone plays all the instruments and dubs them together to make a song, then raps over it (as opposed to singing) or sings AND raps over it, does it make it not music?

What if it's a mix of samples taken from other artists and music the artist has made on their own?

I hated hip hop my entire life, just never really got into it until about two years ago. The indie scene is a lot better than most of what you get in the mainstream. It's the cliche' response, but it's not about guns, graffiti and destroying shit anymore.

There's a song you can stream from the page where you vote, you can decide if you like it or not! :D

I should say, I call it rap, but we are classified better under hip hop, new soul, and maybe R&B sometimes.

For instance, the I Ate Your Soul song is hard to classify as anything but indie, it's on the myspace @ http://www.myspace.com/grieves.

yeah, dont get me wrong, i listen to ICP. i'm not opposed to RAP in general, but 99% of the time its either 1) somebody trying to act harder than they are, cause they've grown up in the suburbs or 2) just horrible music.

Spamming self-promotion on completely unrelated websites ftl. The least you could've done is post it in the Asylum.

P.S. PM me now for info on good mortgage rates, enlargement pills, and credit relief.
