    • First very nice tone on your bass. Second, the "shield" comment. Even Sammy Hagar mentioned when working with Van Halen he got his shield taken away when the band started using backing tracks for keys. Sammy was asked to mainly just sing.

    • ...and this is why its important to watch the entire video before commenting. LOL Okay to answer the question at hand, I think the reason that there are few rap covers is because rappers want to establish THEMSELVES. They want people to say their names, amd for people to know their words at a concert. That's one theory. Another would be the "if it ain't broke" theory where if something is so well received and loved by many, the lack of confidence to do an original spin on something will be completely absent. Case and point @Me,Also ME stating that RATM had in opinion "ruined" the iconic rap song. In the rap genre, fans and critics alike of the craft are very critical when it comes to this music.

    • @Me, Also Me Love it, hate it....."eye of the beholder" philosophy. I say in defense of this song that two ways covers can be done. The rapper could give a shout out to the original "MC" on the track, or ask permission before hand. Afterwards bitting is obviously not the case in these scenarios. Finally Cyprus Hill loved what RATM had done so much with the song, they performed the RATM version live to fans, and the positive energy received was received was massive.

    • @PiercingPencils Art wow! I love RATM and that specific Cypress Hill song with all my heart. But that cover is trash and a great example of why rap songs shouldn't be covered.

  • So I think along with the thing about biting, something about a lot of rap is that it's very personal to the artist putting it out even if it isn't autobiographical. There is usually something very specific about a rap song that comes somewhere from lived experience and usually a much more specific pain than a lot of pop or rock songs. It's why Kwame's cover of Alright works along with it being a grand homage to Kendrick's original the sentiment about unity in the face of oppression is something that a lot of rappers here in Aus sing about so he is basically saying back to Kendrick "Yea man we feel you down here too".

  • I think for most genre's there's enough leeway to put your own twist on them, but rap lyrics tend to be specifically made with rhythm and emphasis, that unless you straight up switch genres to loosten the restrictions, it's less of an homage or a cover, and more of a competition - there's so little room for difference that the 'difference' becomes a question of better. Doesn't apply to all rap, of course, but a lot of them start sounding off when you start moving things around. At least, that's my technical explanation. Basically: most of the nuance in rap is in the creation of the lyrics, rather than the performance of them, which makes the performance less of a "new take" and more of an example of "one-upmanship" But maybe someone has examples of rap being performed differently within the genre in a way that makes sense, flow-wise. Mostly, I see lyrics crafted with flow specificially in mind.

  • 10:15 - "When you have white artists taking black musicians music and then sanitizing it through irony for a white audience" - anyone we studied popular music history knows that's the most common way to make money in this industry. Many genres started out as "black" close community music which came to be known to a wider audience and sold only when white artists started doing it, which will often result in black people being offended and inventing NEW things and all over again.

  • When I was in my twenties we used to get drunk and take turns trying to spit the best flow. There weren't really any written rules but originality was important. It had to rhyme on beat, or with the beat. Confidence was important. Flow was important. Like when you're playing your guitar and you get into that "zone". It shows. The people around watching can feel it too. But to try and answer the question of copy-cat rap? I think the mob would just call you out in it if you were stealing someone else's stuff. It was a long time ago though, probably there were more details that I am missing. Seems like everything was ruled half way between the mob and the unwritten rules of the street. Where did these unwritten rules come from? well .... no one likes a copy-cat, right? Of course, none of this has anything to do with the industry.

  • I saw Snoop Dogg live once at a music festival. Rap isn't usually my preference in music, but given his stardom I decided to stop by. My main complaint was that he mostly played 2-pac songs. I understand 2-pac's contribution to the genre. But again with rap not really being my preference, I wasn't really there to see 2-pac's songs, so that was one of my main complaints.

  • WHo cares about "Vulnerable" What is vulnerable about millionaires stuttering verses out about how they were bad kids in their youth and went to jail for idiotic decisions? Or about telling everybody how wonderful it is to take drugs? THAT is htier shield they hide behind, a "lifestory" that should not be questioned, but not necessarily has to be REAL. That is just part of the millieu, not necessarily of the artist. I have great problems to really get into rap or jazz as i'm mostly interested in melodies with rhythms being secondary and both the use of the voice as instrument but not melodically but almost as a percussion instrument and the improvisation and "willfully odd" motives of Jazz are kind of offensive to my ears. can't help it. But i totally could get into an acoustic guitar cover where the lyrics do not matter so much, i don't understand 90% of them anyway without googling a lyrics page... they have zero impact on me, the MELODY and hearing a voice really put FEELING into them is what gets me. YMMV. but this is MY experience.

I could not understand most of the music they played at an outdoor party (from Spotify) once, except for one tune that sounded a little like Will Smith's Men in Black (which I like). The other ones I love in the privacy of my office--and wish you had referenced--are Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" and the CCM love letter to Sir Mix a Lot, Dan "Southpaw" Smith's "Baby Got Book," aka "the best worst Christian rap song of all time." I told the grandkids' mother that I would learn to rap, and she said NO!, except for maybe Rapper's Delight. lol

  • In Russia there was a rap duo "Vagabund", which consisted of two powerhouse names such as Oxxxymiron and Schokk. Among other stuff they made two songs called "То густо, то пусто" (A Russian idiom, "Sometimes plenty, other times nothing") and "Дегенеративное искусство" ("Degenerate art", a German term meaning modern art that didn't fit nazi ideology in Hitler's times). In the latter they dissed a rapper in the chorus. Then there was an assault on them by the rapper they dissed, he broke into their hotel room with armed men and everything, there was a fight and some humiliating scenes when said rapper insisted on the guys giving an apology. Following that, the duo separated because of each others' behaviour and actions after the event. And then Schokk released a record called "То густо, то пусто II" where he threw out Oxxxymiron's verse and rapped to the same beat and fully kept the rhyming and rhytmic schemes but changed some words so that the song now was about their parting of the ways, anger, an alleged betrayal and a sad goodbye. And Oxxxymiron covered "Degenerate art", throwing out Schokk's verse and replacing it with a rap by a punk band leader while they rapped live on the music said band was playing. So there is such an event of covering rap songs, although they were partly their own.

  • You kind of touched on the point that people get ridiculed for not knowing a certain song, I feel that in some scenes of hip hop , seeing how inclusive hip hop can be, some artists from those areas where those scenes are more predominant can be ridiculed for not knowing the areas history or not understanding the local sound. Doing a cover of a song is mostly seen as a taboo in hip hop, I would say a majority of hip hop fans and artists encourage "authenticity", in other words people want to relate to the lyrics depending where they're from or who they are but the want someone who lived or is living that "life" that the artist is rapping.

    • The huge majority of rappers are writing their own stuff. It's extremely rare outside of mainstream pop rap that you see ghostwriters who are doing most of the work. Most rappers are underground soundcloud guys who mostly fit into categories of trying to create stories/show emotions or are making whatever is popular at the time (i.e. "mumble" rap started mostly when future got big) and trying to get famous off that. Rarely do you see writers and indie rappers in the same track just because most rap is personal to people.

Fresh's"La Di Da Di"which was covered in several other genres.There are plenty of covers of Biggie Smalls,2-Pac and others. I worked with lots of Memphis rappers like Al Kapone,Three Six Mafia,Eight Ball & MJG,DJ Squeeky,Jazzy Pha,Skinny Pimp,Playa Fly and so on.my point is at least there,...They all covered each other in those days.So,...It do occur though not as much.

  • That makes a lot of sense now. I never heard of the "no biting" rule, and was somewhat mystified by Professor Elemental's song "Fighting Trousers," in which during the preamble he says in part "Jeffrey, what's that you have in your hand, boy? Pass it over. A telegram? *Reads* Oh dear, it seems someone has been 'Biting' me." Same with the first verse of the rap itself. It seems another artist had been working off of Elemental's catalogue and this song was the response.

  • Two obvious questions: 1. Why not just ask the rappers (a large enough sample size of them for statistical significance)? 2. Regarding "keeping it real," - I find this claim questionable, because underneath all of the "realness" in so many rap songs is THE SAMPLED MUSIC OF OTHERS (but... non-rap). I guess you invite an infinite regress if you start having samples of samples, but I guess you would argue that a sample is not the same as a cover. Still..... It begs the question that if in a genre that so freely samples the music of others, it is verboten to do a cover of those results.

  • Cool video Adam, around the 4 min mark you talk about being able to find only one article about biting and there being no cover songs in Rap music. I wrote about this phenomenon as an aside in part of my master's of music therapy thesis in 2004, where I was examining the potential of Hip Hop music in therapeutic settings. My 2004 research eventually became two chapters in the first academic textbook (2011) dealing with Hip Hop in music therapy settings. It was edited by Sue Hadely, published by Routlege and called "Therapuetic Uses of Rap & Hip Hip", there are some great articles in that book that you would probably enjoy reading.

  • It also might be a matter of technicality - it might not be challenging to _perform_ most rap pieces, so much as it is challenging to _create_ the piece for the voice/beat to begin with. At least, I'm positing that theory, since the only straightforward rap covers I see often are for fast rap - where the identity isn't as engaging as the technicality of performing itself.

  • This has nothing to do with "hiding" or "being real". One has to ask, what is it that makes a rap song? Is it the lyrics? Is it the backbeat? Other samples scattered throughout the song? Before we can discuss the idea of covering rap, we first need to identify what constitutes the identity of a rap song. In Rock there's usually a characteristic riff or chord progression which is much more important that lyrics. For instance, Sweat Child of Mine is those first four bars of the riff; I could change the lyrics at no great loss, whereas replacing that famous arpeggio almost nullifies the identity of the song. In Jazz, you can reorchestrate a piece of music, even reharmonise it, but what makes the piece is clearly melody. Changing that nullifies the identity of the piece. With Classical music things get much more picky, because the tradition after the advent of Classicism is to strictly perform music as written, with no improvisation whatsoever. This means that even changing one note is going to be perceived as nothing short of a mistake. All of these characteristic elements have been, thus far, purely musical. Well, in Rap that's not exactly the case. I believe that Rap is, first and foremost, lyrics. Though not just the words, but also the music that is found within the way words are said in time, i.e. the rhythm, the flow. So, a Rap _cover_ would have to maintain not only the words, but also the rhythm of these words - yet every single other aspect of the music can change. So, why aren't Rap covers a thing if they're clearly possible? Well, because Rap music culture is toxic, much like the one of Jazz (and probably Classical, too). The idea that you have to abide by certain rules to be recognised as a valid member of the herd is completely anti-music, anti-art. The norm in Rap is that the composer is also the performer (and vice versa), excluding featured artists. There's no reason why it has to be that way.

    Мариос ХристодулуМариос Христодулу4 gün önce
  • I think if you're going to compare jazz and hip-hop, the better analogy would be blowing over a standard = rapping over a sample. It's commonplace to improvise over a standard in jazz (i.e. taking Broadway showtunes and recontextualizing them within the culture of jazz), just as it's commonplace to improvise over samples/loops in hip-hop (i.e. recontextualizing all kinds of music within hip-hop culture). It's taboo to play someone else's solo note-for-note in jazz, just as it's taboo to rap someone else's lyrics word-for-word in hip-hop. HOWEVER, in both art forms (and really in all aspects of Black American culture as I understand it) it's acceptable, and desirable, to build your own solos/bars by layers and layers of allusion and reference. Think of how many jazz solos have "the lick" or how many rappers use stock phrases like 'hip-hop and you don't stop'. Think of Kanye riffing off the beginning of Biggie "Warning" for his verse on "Get 'Em High". Think of Pharcyde riffing off Public Enemy "Black Steel" but changing it to be about the DMV instead of the Selective Service. Think of preachers in Black churches building a whole sermon from snippets of scripture plus all kinds of other sayings and aphorisms. That's the vernacular, the vocabulary. The skill is in finding ways to combine these stock phrases in novel ways and twist them to suit your own purposes. Besides all that, I think it's common knowledge that Big Bank Hank did bite his entire verse on "Rapper's Delight" from Grandmaster Caz... can't really call it a cover cause Caz had never put his performance on record, though. I think Kanye's "Jesus Walks" was written by Rhymefest originally. There's lots of ghostwriting in hip-hop.

  • No, cultural appropriation can never be an issue because it isn't a thing. A culture isn't something that belongs to you and you have all rights over it, a culture is something malleable that changes over time and that you have no control over. Cultures integrate pieces or aspects of other cultures all the time, and nobody has ever made a fuss about it because it was actually an honor to have your culture be accepted by another people. Like the Greek influence over the Romans. Or the Roman culture over all of Europe. Or French/English culture all over the world. Is anybody complaining about Japanese people enjoying Christmas or doing marriages in white dresses and tuxedos? Just saying, here. As a black dude I'm fucking tired about this cheap ass elitism people decided to call "cultural appropriation". It's a bullshit concept. Use my culture all you like, I am honestly honored you like it.

    • @Parth Chopra First of all, "they" who? There's no point in talking about someone imaginary cause they can hypothetically be anything or do anything. Secondly, that's anecdotal evidence. One particular case can prove the existence of something (and I don't doubt the existence of people like this), but that's it. Lastly... What's that got to do with the culture, though? I listen to music all the time and that doesn't mean I want the singers in my house, or their culture in my everyday life, for that matter. It's ok to just like this or that aspect of another culture, there's nothing wrong about it. That's not 'appropriation' in the least bit. It's the very same concept I mentioned of one culture absorbing an element of another, because as I said cultures don't belong to anybody, and it's a good thing that a part of your culture is liked and adopted outside of it.
