Is this what this generation's music has been reduced to? Pathetic.

I have to protest! the above may be crap but...

please, please, please! I shudder when I hear people say 'this generations' music/attitude/fill in the blank is soooooooo substandard.

Sure it is. But some of it is really awesome too. Not going to get into a quibble/debate about who is better than who... but there is some conscious, sassy, smart, intelligent creative expression being produced and created by the 'yoof' of today.

Yes misogyny - for both sexes is on the skyrocket rise and that's a shame - but there is hope too. It's probably hidden though.

Seek and you may find it. Some youth does possess a lot of wisdom.
I reject the 'my generation was better' thing... there are always commercial dipsticks and conscious individuals.... always.
.
Yes I notice how I am starting sound more and more like my parents about the music today Black Viking. I am 32 and feel little old sometimes when I hear some of the music being played on the radio. I barely even listen to the radio. I know it has been months since I turned the radio on. I have not heard of this song. The lyrics are ridiculous!

I basically don't listen to the radio at all... I get my music on via CD..... And I don't watch television... So I have to make an effort to hear this music... An effort which I'm less and less willing to make as I get older..
Personally, I would think that's one of the better "songs" out on the market if that's the extent of the lyrics! Eek

After all, he didn't call her a bitch or a ho or graphically describe the specific body parts that would be involved with his night "experience" with her. You can definitely tell right off the bat that it's not a Snoop song! Big Grin

If that was the worst that I had to hear when I listen to "this generation's" music ... I think I'd actually be relieved. sck
How do you sit down and write a song like that? Better yet, WHY do you sit down and write a song like that?

Poppin rollin yea yea yea blee blee blah

Is that even English?? Sounds like something Beyawnce would write. Roll Eyes One has to chuckle at the image of this simpleton writing a love song while being relieved of all his cash. That's just bidness, playa. bsm

In any event, I agree with EbonyRose. This is tame compared to such classics as "What That Thang Smell Like" "I Aint Got No Panties On" etc.
It feels like some of you guys are prejudging the whole generation of music based off this one song. I agree, strongly, that this a stupid song, but I get why it was written. It's nothing but pure entertainment. I take it as something to make you laugh, this type of music is not suppose to make you think. Your suppose to laugh at it and then get the song stuck in your head and start humming it. Or at the very least your not suppose to analyze this song, just find the funny in it. I think ebonyrose said that at least he's not calling her a bitch or a ho, and I agree. T-Pain could have said a lot of other things.
I'm just tired of calling the constant objectification of women entertainment.

Perhaps I'm getting fogy, but quite frankly, I'm no longer entertained.

I don't mind that such music exists, but I wish there were more of a balance out there.

I'm ready to be serenaded and revered. Not as a bitch, but as a woman.

What happened to that whole I want a Black queen thing that was popular when I was coming up?

How about that? We went from queens to hos in a decade.

T-Pain Lyrics

I'm N Luv (Wit A Stripper) Lyrics


(feat. Mike Jones)

[Intro]


[Verse 1]

Got the body of a goddess
Got the body of a goddess



[Verse 2 (T-Pain)]
Out of all the girls she be the hottest
Like n the way she break it down I see u girl
Spinnin wide
And She lookin at me
Right in my eyes
Yea She got my attention
Yea yea yea
Did I forget to mention
I Need to get her over to my crib and do that night thang
Cause I'm N Luv Wit a Stripper

[Verse 3 (Mike Jones)]
She's every man's dream
[Chorus x2]

[Verse 4]

She dont even know me
[Chorus x4]

-------------------------------------------

Figured if we're going to talk about a song, we'd probably need to point a few key lyrics...

Rumor is, he married said stripper...


Being a stripper isn't neccessarily a respectable occupation. But they're are respectable women that happen to be strippers.


I think another key word I forgot is
MESMERIZED

It's the trance that these women are able to put men in that makes them the envy of all women...

These women are usually in fairly decent shape, and take pretty good care of themselves (sometimes it's just genetics).

Women that don't stay in shape and take care of their bodies, have no room to speak against strippers.

It stopped selling...

The purse & wallet will always decide what is presented as popular entertainment. Buy more Maxwell, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, etc.


Music always has generation gaps - face it - We are all getting old & crotchety - just like our parents! laugh

This may be true.....

Well....

I celebrate being old....

because if being young means I have to reinterpret myself from goddess to ho.....

well....

I'll take old and crotchety any day...


no offense to you ddouble... Smile This statement is simply a pet peeve of mine.....


K?


Peace,

No offense taken hat I don't think of old & crotchety as a bad thing - just being playful. Big Grin

I edited my earlier post because I was going to include one "sticky" point - but since you alluded to it:

Why does the music define you? What happened to the intelligence to differentiate between entertainment & reality? If we have lost the ability to perform this task, should we not ban all works of fiction, be they music, written, or visual?

If the kiddies are the main concern, proper parenting/mentoring is the answer IMO. No song or movie has ever (at any point in my life) made me behave in a certain manner. The song is fluff, but no one is holding a gun to anyone's head and making them listen to it (or ones like it).

Everyone has free will....

Yes....

Or do they?......

How much is influence and how influential a stage is one in their life.....

what is the ratio of free will and influence....

to a person that is very subjective.....

however....

the question is one of standards.....

and timing.....

if my standards are such that I abhor the degradation of women....

I have the will to turn off the t.v.

but.....

if I am in a relatively small environment and hear it daily....

perhaps I may allow myself to be ostracized ......
perhaps I may allow myself to be irritated to the point of leaving.....

irritated to the point of physically removing the offensive sounds....

irritated to the point of internalizing it into something unhealthy.....

giving in to it and allowing it to become a part of my entertainment....

standing up to it firmly in the hopes that others willl affect a change as well....

all options....

I'm sure there are more I've over looked....

the point is that we are all diverse.... in our standards, psychological tolerances, will and strength.....

but it boils down to ....... what are you willing to accept as images and entertainment flooding your way?

Some may say that degradation of women.... particularly Black women is intolerable...

others may say.... eh? it's just entertainment....

Peace,

I understand every sentiment that has been expressed in this thread. Ultimately, everyone has to make a choice regarding how they process the stimuli in their environment. It is a willful, deliberate act, IMO - the responsibility of one's choice lies with the individual. Entertainment does not have to be entertaining to me, nor do I have to consume it.

The danger to me is also one of "standards":

Who gets to set the standards? What happens to those "outside" the standards & the standard-bearing group? See, we don't disagree.

If we are striving for Ma'at, there are a few, more pressing issues to bring in line before this song...

The music stopped selling because we stopped hearing it. Records companies are shelling out BIG BUCKS to determine what you hear on the radio. You'll hear this song 45 times before you'll hear Jill Scott once. We are basically listening to Clear Channel's personal, payola-enhanced playlist every time we turn on the radio, no matter what programming format it is. Add to that people who apparently buy records because they like to hum to the background music or not take lyrics "too seriously" or whatever and you have the situation we are currently in. It's like they're hypnotized, supporting whatever it is they are exposed to the most and told is "HOT." They do the same thing when they pick which movies to see, who the "best-looking" celebs are, anything and everything. And the large corporations are more than happy to step in and tell them exactly what it is "they like" so nobody has to be bothered with all that "thinking." sck
