SPANISH GUITAR FILES: DEATH EDITION
THE LAST EMPEROR & POETIC - "ONE LIFE"
95% of the time, Spanish Guitars are used to evoke a sense of pathos in the listener. On "One Life," ex-GRAVEDIGGA Poetic confronts the ultimate horror: slow, painful death. Sign of the times: poptimism has established such hegemony in critical discourse that traditional underground rap is hopelessly out of style. Catch me crying into my notepad at the Scribble Jam revival.
A-WAX, WOODIE, B-DAWG - "A REBEL'S PRAYER"
This one's for the boyz choppin meth in the trailer park. Jersey game on flex, Woodie spittin that realness for all you sheeple. His stilted delivery sounds like a parody of a white guy rapping or EMINEM in Dr. Demento novelty-song mode, yet his white-trash pain was real. Woodie offed himself in 2007. Rap Game William Cooper.
