Ok, lets take a moment to think about the kind of messages this... I hesitate to even call him a performer... is sending to the public, not to mention the numerous impressionable teenagers who buy up the latest trends in music like candy.
Emenem's lyrics are so profane, so offensive, so vehement, and so incredibly lame they read like they could be a script to a gangster themed porn movie. I'd site some lyrics, but the language and nature of them would probably violate the TOS of this site and get my review erased. Just look them up on the web; there are plenty of places to find lyrics. Whatever you do, don't give this hatemonger more fuel by purchasing any of his recordings.
The fact that he names individuals in his songs, makes direct comments to and about them, and in some cases even graphic verbal depictions of sex and violence is exceedingly disturbing. It amazes me to no end that someone this sadistic and demented not only managed to get his so-called 'songs' past whatever amounts to an pproval board at the record company that publishes him but he's also being publish and basically being given a license to corrupt our youth and fill their heads with violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, and murder.
I may be a little 'oldskool' but I find it rather degrading when other guys talk about things they'd like to do with an attractive female just in passing comments. I'm certainly disgusted to find this behavior in the music industry. Freedom of Speech is a privilege that this sorry excuse for an artist is abusing to the fullest.
I used to be ok with Rap 'back in the day' when the rap scene was kind of fledgling and the performers actually had talent. Don?t get me wrong, there still are good rap artists but those who truly deserve the spotlight are unfortunately overshadowed by very pathetic examples of how shock value sells more than true talent.
Such is Emenem.
