Let's face it, hip-hop is pretty stupid.

Not, like, inherently. Because it used to be about self-reflection, empowerment, and fun. Now, though, the mainstream rap community's message can be boiled down to a handful of misguided concepts, spewed and propagated by lying hacks.

There's almost nothing enlightening about radio-friendly rap music. And here are the five most annoying buzzwords on the air.

"Swag"
Honestly, this word is dead. We used to argue about who invented it. But most "en vogue" lyricists have buried, mourned, and moved on from this hideous beast. This doesn't mean pop culture has paid any mind to the tides of time. Unless you're using the word ironically (and honestly, just don't), letting the term "swag" roll off your tongue is like walking around with "total asshole" stamped on your forehead. Let it go.

I don't think I want to read the article just based on your intro ..."hip hop is pretty stupid"

coming from new jersey where HIP HOP is still pure. Here in Miami you guys are lacking what we have back home. its actually pretty pathetic that u guys dont have any REAL emcees who can actually spit. even the underground artist out here are as lame as the commercial dudes on the radio. Check me out on youtube,itunes,google what ever. my name is Joey Dynomite. if you can find a good enough emcee that can fuck with me. i'll give u guys credit. but until then my opinion remains that Miami has NO HIP HOP CULTURE!!!! if anyone can point me in the right direction to it. I will be very appreciative!!!

"Real" Fuck the bullshit. But "real" died with Tupac and Biggie in the '90s. Nothing about modern hip-hop is "real." None of you mainstream rappers are "real." Your rhymes aren't "real." Your Auto-Tuned voices aren't "real." Your threats aren't "real." Your girlfriend's hair, nails, nose, and body aren't "real." Your money isn't "real." Everything about you is a lie, and these doped-up masses are buying it hook, line, and sinker. This "ignant" rap game is a pretty nice scam. And as long as everyone stays geeked on mollies, they may never notice the difference. Just keep rackin', stackin', and slackin' until the party's over. You only live once.
