The White Rapper Show

Because of my background, I consider it my duty to watch things like VH1’s The White Rapper Show. Most people wouldn’t bother, and that’s probably a good idea, but I’ll give you a quick, bulleted list of some thoughts I have about the show:

  • MC Serch is the perfect host for this show
  • Dropping 10 white kids into a place in the middle of the Bronx to live? Brilliant.
  • The rappers themselves are terrible. Most come from the “club banger” mentality and spit like any other commercial emcee. A few occasionally shine with a solid verse (Persia, in particular).
  • Guest stars that have been awesome: Prince Paul, Kool Keith, and Bushwick Bill
  • Guest stars that I could have done without: Juelz Santana, Marc Ecko, Just Blaze
  • There’s not enough day-to-day stuff shown. Do these guys ever go out on their own to go get something at the corner store?
  • Serch’s catchphrases still make me laugh, even halfway through the season
  • If I hear “hallelujah holla back” one more time…

I await your input.

I haven’t watched more then a minute here and there, but that was enough to develop an opinion. First of all, a few of the guys aren’t trying to act black, and seem genuine. That is always a welcome quality with white emcees. Second, most of them suck as you said. Third, there are tons of good, unsigned white emcees they could have used. Finally, La Coka Nostra were great guests to have.

Ah, yes — forgot about La Coka Nostra.

I’m pretty sure their living in my friends old trailer home, I’m not sure though it was a pretty drunk period of my life…

What is this then?
