If you go on to myspace, you will a lot of young people between the ages of 14-25 from Christchurch, NewZealand, who call themselves Gangsta Rappers. Now these people aren't saying they love the Rap genre, they are saying, that they, themselves are Gangsta Rappers.
You kinda guess that they aren't because not many Gangsta Rappers have their mothers buy shirts for them from Hallenstines Department Store. Gangsta Rappers also don't talk about how they can get Giggy with their Wiggy, I don't really want to picture what that means.
But hey, according to thier myspace pages, these little white kids from NewZealand, are on to it, they use terms like Ni**a, Wigga, Cracker, Homeees, and of course they have the hand gestures down pact, thier mums must also have given them an Eminem poster for Xmas.
They have thier caps on backwards, one guy even wanted to thank his Crew.
Now anybody who has ever visited America or have associated with Real Urban Americans in the Poverty cycle, know how far from the truth these kids are. I really don't have the heart to tell them, that those sayings they are coming up with, the clothes that they are wearing or the hand gestures, were thought up buy a think tank of White Middle Age Men in Madison Avenue to sell products to kids that Don't know better, and if these guys ever came across a Real Gangsta Rapper they would probably get the snot beaten out of them being so stereotypical.
I guess what I'm saying is, nobody who has ever been part of that life for real, would go on myspace and called themselves a Gangsta. My advice to them, if you want to be come a Rapper, go to states, send demos to the labels, play club after club, but lose the myspace page. The only artist who ever started with a myspace page and ended up going multiplatinum and winning Grammys was Lee Brice, a country music artist.
