RAP RATZ – “Lyrical Mastery” [#RapRatz] @IndieHipHop
Rap Ratz is more than a Hip Hop version of Doonesbury, the Rap Ratz are created from the mind of IndieHipHop.net founder Funkworm whose analysis of the “new” Hip Hop is scathing at times, yet dead on point, calling for the return of “Lyrical Mastery.” ?As never before, the new generation of Hip Hop Artists need to have their egos checked AND guided back into the fold of the community. ?Like a political rally, Rap Ratz and their creator Funkworm, throw the proverbial alarm clock into the new music graveyard as a wakeup call to those who are sleeping and letting the genre veer from the “Lyrical Mastery” that was such a key component of the Hip Hop movement begun by the Legends!
Bring Real Hip Hop Back! is the new battle cry from those sickened by the “skinny jeans” and “booty booty booty” music?prevalent?during this day and time.
