Confederate flags, fam?
this shit was okay, im sure it will do well with the females, especially with the club-hoppers. in my opinion, i liked the [ignorant]-simplicity of the original. and i find 2 things really annoying with nicki's verse:
1) the transition was awkward
2) the last word she says (reminiscent of her a$$ remix with big sean)
other than that, yeah her verse was pretty good.
So she mentions Alabama in the song, shoots the video in New Orleans, but they get no tour dates?
On top of that you believe the decline came from people all of a sudden just deciding not to support the music even when the overwhelming evidence is clear that music is being downloaded tens of millions of times per year.
Maybe mindless to you, but I like how Beyonce says that she like her man with Jackson 5 nostrils and her baby's hair with a afro. I also like how she has Black Moors, black beauty shop owners, and BlackLivesMatter and Katrina references in the video.
And my aunts and grandmothers ALWAYS had #Hotsauce in their purses, just in case a restaurant's food was too bland, lolol. I'm not a Beyonce fan but I love the black pride messages in this song and video.
Social media will keep it relevant? Hip Hop was here before social media and will likely be here long after people stopping giving a fuck about Twitter. Your leaving a bunch of comments on a Hip Hop blog talking shit at that... Smh
Do you like Hip Hop? Yeah, I thought so. Apparently its good enough to catch your attention.
