Rapper's performance at Microsoft Store event cut short after destruction of several PCs - Page 4

post #121 of 128

Introducing Microsoft's new spokesman!


MGK

 

That's one thing that always impressed Steve about Microsoft --- their taste.

(And he meant taste in a big way, not a small way!)

Throughout the entire video I just wanted to slap him across the face, pull up his trousers and sit him down in front of an English teacher like some fussy mother.

That aside, anyone else notice everyone was using iPhones?

They've hit the top 100 and are signed by Interscope Records. That takes a lot of dedication that you don't find in someone you'd call "trash".

"Dedication" is not the world you're looking for. "Knowing your target audience", however, is far more appropriate. You'd be surprised how hilariously simple pop music like that is to make.

 

To boil it down to its simplest form - sing about the following:

  1. Whores;
  2. Guns, or;
  3. Whores getting shot with guns

 

Then grab the "RnB" preset from a cheap synthesizer with the kick and snare drum from a Roland TR808. I made a generic backing track in a few hours: loop 8 bars and fill the beat every 16 bars and you're golden.

 

I have nothing against Rap and Hip-Hop when its good. I've got about 350GB of music and a good little chunk of that is Rap and Hip-Hop, listening to Gang Starr right now, actually; but music like the stuff in the video usually makes me hide the fact that I do actually like the genre because its just mindless drivel being spit out by a pretentious prick with anger problems.
