We’ve done a post on this trend before in the past (see here), mostly for laughs. But now it seems rappers are really starving for attention, and are willing to get a buzz by any means possible.
Lil B has already proven an affinity for “Shock Value” Rap by naming one of his recent albums “I’m Gay” and now he pops up with this new video for the track “Got the Mack Loaded” wearing these Nefertiti-looking earrings while rapping about generic gangsterisms. We don’t know about you guys but this just seems waaaay too extra. Come on people, what happened to concentrating on the music, and just making sure you’re putting out the best product possible. Enough with the gimmicks already.
