Hear me out, ok? Before you spam this thread with "go back to Nigeria you fuckin nigger" or "wew lad nice copypasta" or just spouting insults like "pleb", bear with me for a minute. If I am genuinely a pleb, you can let me know by giving a constructed argument against what I'm about to say instead of spewing buzzwords.
All my life, I've heard the generally accepted idea that rock is good, hip-hop is bad. Rock is substance filled, hip-hop is about bitches, money, drugs, and violence. Even on this board, your asshole is torn apart if you even DARE to say hip-hop is a respectable genre. Why is this? Is this because of some form of racism? Is this because of cherry picking due to the popular media portraying "bangers" as the representation of hip-hop as a whole? I myself cannot give many examples without sounding like I am generalizing, but it seems that although the "pleb" side of hip-hop is usually vapid nonsense, this is only a fraction of it. Whereas "rock" seems like it is mainly dominated by bullshit. I know on this board when most people refer to rock or whatever they're speaking on its various sub-genres (indie rock, math rock, post-rock, etc.), and even if I do enjoy these styles myself, but why are they so above hip-hop? Even if hip-hop has a history of being "non-lyrical", one can plainly see that it offers a format that begs for rich lyricism and offers a convenient and logical way to deliver said lyrics. But EVERY time I indulge in even the pinnacle of folk, rock, punk, etc., I find simplistic and pretentious lyrics and arrangements when compared to the potential of hip-hop. Sure, hip-hop may be more straight forward but does the music have to be so mind-numbingly "deep" and "artistic" that it goes beyond average human comprehension? I'm not saying every song should be "killin all dese snitches, fuckin all dese bitches", just the hip-hop as a form of art offers a more poetic approach to music.

So what do you think Think of Blackstar?
Shit? Great? 10/10?
As of now 7/10 after first listen but will probably end up a 9 when I've familiarized myself with the songs and have heard it in good quality and not out of my shitty built in mac speakers
Blackstar, Tis a Pity She Was a Whore, and Sue are best tracks at the moment. As a whole sounds pretty typical of Bowie as of late, but I need to hear better quality than some shitty vinyl rip.
Remember when Fergie peed her pants on stage?
What is the best autechre track title?
