Whether it’s because they’re rich enough to not care what people think or because they are just so badass that the normal lines of behavior don’t exist for them, no matter the reason the fact is some of the biggest names in hip-hop just don’t give a fuck. It’s true that guys like Eminem, ODB, and Public Enemy probably belong on this list but the artists we’ve singled out don’t mind being themselves in public with a camera on them. That’s really what makes these guys the 7 rappers who just don’t give a fuck.
7. DMX Drops The F Bomb in Court
You can take the rapper out of the hood but sometimes you just can’t take the hood out the rapper. I would have to say that goes double for DMX. In the same time that he put out 6 hit albums he managed to get arrested for a litany of acts including drug possession, animal cruelty, reckless driving, driving without a license while possessing marijuana, parole violation and my personal favorite falsely identifying himself as an FBI agent during a parking lot robbery at JFK airport. Clearly DMX does not give a fuck that he is one of the biggest rappers in the game with millions of dollars in the bank (we assume) and legions of fans. The greatest thing about DMX is that even when he gets caught and has to impress a judge to win freedom he proceeds to drop the f bomb in front of an entire courtroom.
6. Puff Daddy Pisses For Millions of Youtube Fans
Last I heard, Puff Daddy is worth over $300 million. With that kind of cash he can and should do whatever he wants without caring what anyone says. Throw massive parties, pour out bottles of Crystal, complain to the world about the tragedy of rising fuel costs forcing you to skip the private jet and fly commercial. Even make a youtube video about how much you enjoy peeing. Cause he can’t stop, and he won’t stop.
5. Busta Rhymes Needs to Shit
Last year Nas released an album apocalyptically titled Hip-Hop is Dead. Well, we here at BeatsandBombs.com obviously disagree, but we do feel that over the years several white rappers have been responsible for some atrocious acts that came very close to killing hip-hop once and for all. These nine acts of musical crime literally brought hip-hop to the brink of death, and now we must learn from the past to ensure history never repeats itself. Why only 9? Because the man wouldn’t let us have 10.
British Loser on X Factor
This British teenager is convinced that he has the look, the personality and most important the talent to become a massive rap superstar. He even claims to have drawn comparisons to his idol Eminem. Unfortunately the only thing this reject shares with Eminem is they both need a solid SPF 50 when they go to the beach.
Average Homeboy Denny Blaze
The late 80’s were a crazy time in America. Wall Street was boomed then bombed, crack was ravaging the inner cities of America, and hip hop started to become mainstream. Amidst all this chaos, a determined white kid from Cleveland by the name of Denny Blaze released a self produced rap album and homemade music video. The video was sent to all the major record labels and most copies were immediately destroyed for the sake of humanity. But one copy survived and was unleashed onto the internet almost 20 years later. Within 24 hours the video had racked up millions of views as the world was painfully introduced to The Average Homeboy.
KRS-One and Soulja Boy sat down recently and chatted about Hip-Hop culture past and present. First off the headline reads “KRS-One Officially Welcomes Soulja Boy” WTF is that? Also how do you get welcomed in to Hip-Hop after you’ve already put out an album? A lot of this just doesn’t make sense to me but enough of the hating.
There were a few parts of the conversation I found interesting first Soulja Boy asked KRS-One why all the older rappers were hating on him and KRS-One answered him how the old cats don’t want to see all the hard work they put in go for nothing if the new generation doesn’t respect the culture. This stuff just sounds like your typical bitter old man syndrome vs. being young and dumb. The other thing I couldn’t believe was KRS had to explain to Soulja Boy how Hip-Hop started out with graffiti, break dancing, beat boxing etc. You crazy kids today, read up on your history haha.

This is a great question posed by the Urban News Network, when people blame the actions of so many sports stars on Hip-Hop I don’t see it as a stretch to apply it to the election. Will the endorsements of so many rappers hurt Barack? Will middle class white Americans see this as Obama attracting the interest of “thugs” and perceive this negatively and use it as an argument against his election? Or will endorsements from rappers just be viewed as just another part of the youth vote? Better yet, has Hip-Hop grown enough that rappers will just be grouped in with celebrity pop culture? Personally I don’t know and the answers are different for different people but I can not wait to see how this plays out throughout the election.
I saw this article and had to post it. This lets you know how influential Isaac Hayes’ music was on the Hip-Hop culture. The author picks out his favorite Isaac Hayes samples and then says the song it is used as a sample in and lets you hear both songs. Really cool stuff. Check it out!
