I hate hip hop?

Responding to a letter written by Mr. Barry Duncan. Based on my opinions of a few recent rap records, he doesn’t seem to think I like hip hop very much.

Tito says:

4 tens, 3 are hip-hop

KO' VU says:

nah im not mad about any of that but the fact that he gave ACID RAP a 6…he lost me.

young boy apple B says:

Berry is delusional

Ismael Freytes says:

Some Modern hip-hop fan are morons

King Kunta says:

I don’t think he hates hip hop but I do think he doesn’t like the new types of hip hop as much, he likes more what he grew up on, same for me I grew up listening to Kanye West and Drake and now this new hip hop is rolling out (lil pump, young thug, ect.) and I don’t like the majority of it. All the kids who like mumble rap will grow up to hate the next generation of hip hop, doesn’t make it worse.

Clément Bled says:

Anthony Hairthano

Ruben Quijano says:

So Melon doesn’t like Eminem…

Loki X says:

could you do capital punishment by Punisher?? Really epic i believe.

Lilian Tedone - Beard Design says:

everyone commenting on mac miller but I’m just shocked to see the melon boy with hair

i cry says:

Anthony do you have a spotify playlist? It’d be nice to listen to the stuff you like for people on the go so that we can just download em easy! Thanks for another great video

Sameer says:

Can you please do more dramatizations; that was amazing

Nell _ says:

2:50 you’re a fucking liar, you gag on Kendrick’s nut sack every chance you get, bitch ass nigga

•김정은 says:

You hated and still hate black people that’s why you give every drake album a 10

Sicko says:

C ‘ M O N S O N.

big fist man says:

I quit after the dude said he was a fan of real hip-hop then proceeded to put Drake in that list

Steven Conrady says:

Why do I hate rap/hip-hop so much?? I mean, this shit is literally killing music…period.

AugustMovieReviewer says:

Then TPAB happened

Killer Mike says:

lol hopsin

Eamon Moore says:

Mac Miller is underground that’s wild that guy just saw the future

Alfredo Alcantar says:

Mc Miller is a joke

Don nix says:

This is what bugs me about hip hop as compared with almost every other genre of music. A lot of hip hop listeners do not give a shut about what came before, who the pioneers of that music are. How many kids who listen to lil yachty know who grand master flash is?? NWA?? Do or die?? How about run dmc or the beastie boys?? Twista?? I do not understand why hip hop is only concerned with whoever is current without giving a nod to the pioneers of it

Aesthetic Virtuoso says:

Drake and Mac Miller both sound awful to me, and im a hip hop fan, so I don’t get that guy. Also underground would be like “atmoshphere” or “MF Doom”

Oʍen says:

this gotta be bait.

killedr says:

Heaven forbid if someone doesnt like the most popular music genre the past 50 years.

Saku Satola says:

At 1:10 what’s the album below Low End Theory?

Alex Nelson says:

If u count drake as “Real Hip-hop” and Mac Miller as “Super underground” nobody’s gonna take u seriously in this genre.

bruce says:

this is a copypasta right?

Jack Hendry says:

Ok But Cilvia Demo Is A Masterpiece

Alexander Hoffman says:

@ 1:11 whats the album on the right side with two people back to back in a record store?

Jesse Mitchell says:

Dude I like your video and this is kind of off-topic. But, that’s one ugly motherfucker on that poster in the background who is that lol

OnixTV says:

Eminem?

BP says:

“Even super underground artists like Mac miller” yea and other super underground artists like drake and lil wayne

dara same says:

Ironically enough two of fantanos 10s are hip hops and another is arguably hip hop

Ac3 says:

“you should stick to rock or something” ???

cb says:

ITS REAL HIP-HOP DONT YOU EVER FORGET ITS THE UNDERGROUND SHIT ITS THE WHITEBOY THAT SAID IT

John Green says:

There words.

Kids See Ghosts

irken24 says:

“Super underground guys like Mac Miller”

Well, I guess he’s super underground now…
