Skurt! Skurt!

This is Keith Ape (and his underwater squad. Skurt skurt!). Keith is making himself a household name with his Korean trap rap. So much so that he has acquired “beef” with L.A.’s own Scream Rap kingpin OG MACO for allegedly biting his style, as well as purporting racial stereotypes with his music.

If we feel a need to start dictating how our culture is imitated, perhaps that’s a sign that we may need to start dictating the messages and images we convey beforehand. “Do as I say, not as I do” only works with children.

So is this where the Hip Hop culture is headed? Worldwide Thug music? What say you?
