Cities Aviv – Float On

Posted by on October 12, 2011

Personally, in my opinion rap has been dumbing down the masses for ages now, and to a lesser extent the artists themselves. Let me prove this point real quick:

Lyrics in the 70’s

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face, stars fill my dreams I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been. To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen. They talk of days for which they sit and wait, all will be revealed. – Led Zeppelin – Kashmir [1975]


Lyrics in 2010

They be actin like they drunk, actin-actin like they drunk. When sober girls around me actin-actin like they drunk. Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard. When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard. Sippin sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6. Now I’m feelin so fly like a G6 – Far East Movement – Like A G6 [2010]

CASE CLOSED. When it comes to rap, I’m motivated to wish I was partially deaf 95% of the time. Although once in a blue moon a rare gem reaches the surface for air, instantly a pulse goes back into the heart of rap and it begins breathing, real talk. Float On has one of the strongest rooted verses ever.
