    Wait...why is Bun B dropping Jalen's name in his verse? I thought the experiment was over?

    Off topic but I'm Amazed and dumbfounded as to why white rappers try to act and look Gangsta and black

    Like in this picture with the gold chains and hat cocked to the left and the gangster signs which makes no sense using his hands

    Like, so I'm guessing if you wear blue jeans and no ballcap and no gold chains then you shouldn't follow rap?


    I know it's off topic but it just pisses me off and as a white man I find it racist honestly..

    I wish a rapper , whether black or white would just look "normal" for once when rapping

    Oh-oh I might just put down my classic rock and switch to big tuck but I need to go to the flea market first and buy some fake gold chains and a lakers or dodgers hat and tell people I'm from East l.A.not houston ...... otherwise I will look weird to everyone as a bald middle age whiteguy dressed in polo listening to big tuck blasting in my Honda CR-V lol

    Maybe this type of dress is associated with hip hop and not being black. It would be like saying wearing all black clothes and too much eye liner is a white thing.

    Perhaps it's more about the culture of hip hop than has to do with anything related to being black?

    Ode to the old school, but Travis Scott or evan Megan should be involved somehow - those are the biggest HTown entertainers currently. These guys are all out of shape and kinda corny. Shrug.

    I'd prefer for ZZ Top to "light the fuse" with some wicked guitar riffs, but thats just personal taste as an older dude now. Used to love rap when I was younger though no lie.

    Why am I not surprised? Oh well. I guess we can go see what Scarface is doing nowadays. I mean maybe even have Trae and ZRo involved? I dunno. Again rap has passed me by.

    Dude I thought the same thing when the slogan came out. Like...did we go from actual space rockets to July 4th celebratory goods?
