Japanese Rap

A light hearted respite from all the heavy and gloomy stuff of late.

Japan is not without its problems, but one of its best parts is how they shamelessly copy anything. Identity politics is just not a thing over there, so you can produce things like this.

 

This is not a parody. There’s a whole genre of local rap. It’s obviously a shameless rip-off of black American rap, but who cares. The Japanese don’t speak English and if they want to enjoy gangsta rap, they gotta produce it themselves. So they do. It’s not very popular, thankfully. But there’s a market for it; and I’m glad for it. I find it very funny.

PS: Yes I know there are other Japanese rappers with their distinctive own style, and some of it is actually ok. But tell me this video ain’t funny.

  3. In the Vice Guide to Liberia, some kid performed his own rap song for the camera, in English. It was pretty authentic, better than 99% of the crap our blacks produce.

  9. I used to do media production for these kinda jokers back when I lived in Tokyo. Their LARPing can be quite endearing.

    Spandrell, can you sponsor me a visa? You’ll have a fellow Euro shitlord to hang out with. I’ve got an MA in Japanese language & culture.

  11. You seen Vox Day going on about babymetal? Not sure what neurotypicals would make of it. Vox is usually good at sensing popularity, but I don’t want to rely on it this time.
