Similarities between metal and hip-hop

Similarities between metal and hip-hop
November 27, 2013, 11:05:05 AM
Since 2004, Beste has been working around the Third and Fifth Wards and South Park neighborhood, photographing the city's hip-hop scene, from its rappers to the fans in the nightclubs. With writer Lance Scott Walker and editor Johan Kugelberg, he's put together a new book, "Houston Rap," which tells the story of these neighborhoods and the artists and music they've produced.

Beste points out "some similarities between the two subjects: each culture has its own code of ethics and aesthetics and dress code; their own way of speaking in slang terms. They're both fringe musical subcultures that strongly represent a time and place."

That is like saying two people are similar because they both have limbs, a head and a personality.

One thing I always liked about hip hop was the artist beefs. I've witnessed so many metal musicians, even good ones, afraid to criticize a peer's shitty work because they knew them/toured with them/used to be in a band with them etc. It would be awesome to see metal bands reaming each other for releasing shitty work (would take a lot of burden off of this site's writers) and might give bands a little more incentive not to suck balls; it'd be even funnier to see large fistfights between metal bands and their entourages in public places.

Maybe not fistfights, but the rest of it definitely. The criticisms I have heard (McEntee is not a big fan of modern metal, who could have guessed???) are very general, hesitant and light. Euronymous had the right idea.
