I often ask myself “Do rappers ever actually think about their lyrics?” Seriously, some of the rap songs hitting the airwaves today are just filled with such mundane ignorance. It’s not even exciting ignorance (as if ignorance can be exciting.) After awhile everything just becomes this big clusterf**k of nonsense, which leaves my pondering is there any in depth thought process involved?
Well I’m not sure what compelled Rhett & Link to do a rap about thoughts, but maybe it has some underlying message about the reality of thoughts and what you can actually rap about. In their latest YouTube video,”Thoughtful Guy,” Rhett & Link rap about…well, their thoughts. It ends up sounding like this cool stoner vibe, but it’s actually a pretty good rap.
Peep the video below. Imagine if you sat down and just rapped about your thoughts. Would they be fuming with intellect and curiosity? Or would a rap about your thoughts (like some rap songs I hear) be riddled with jargon, deeming it a big clusterf**k of nonsense?
