Suppose if I have a preference, would go with old school rap. While having some cheesy elements due to incorporating fashion trends and musical norms of the 1980s and 1990s with its elements, it did bring along some sub-genres like gangsta rap and West Coast hip-hop that touched upon some touchy social issues on urban life for African Americans that others in the public eye didn't touch upon during the time from rappers like Tupac Shakur, NWA, and LL Cool J. Rap also served as a personal outlet for some artists like Eminem to cut loose with the dirty laundry from their personal lives that made them compelling, yet also controversial due to their subject matter and graphic language.
The new sub-genre styles introduced from new-school rap like crunk and snap music felt too gimmicky for me and due to hip-hop and rap becoming more mainstream by that point, the whole musical genre felt homogenized since many songs felt no different from one another due to record labels trying to make the music of their artists more marketable for mainstream audiences thus taking away much of the uniqueness of the genre.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for

Taka: Felt awkward watching Rambo Last Stand when your old man wants to check the Rambo movies on Prime. There were only 2 movies underneath it. I might write a review on it.

Taka: Welcome to Anime Vice. Please check the battle rules. It's best to make a battle thread in the forums not the chat box.

Old Man Dream: Update with Three Callaberos. Only about halfway through it at the moment. Because it's a package film with a series of animated shorts, been taking my time getting through it this past week. Never got around to seeing it last night since I got swamped...
