I really liked this post Tanner! I completely agree with the paragraph “Stupid Hoe” and how there is so much music that really doesn’t have any meaning. On the contrary though, I do think a lot of thought has to go into songs in order for them to have no meaning, but still be catchy. In Minaj’s song “Massive Attack,” there are African drum beats that resonate through the song in the background… Not many artists have that kind of twist in songs. There is really no point for 90% of the music out right now, other than it being fun to listen to. But at the same time, I think there is just as much effort put into the flare of the music today as the lyrics in the rap of the past.
