24 хайку про те, що хіп-хоп не помер


Хіп-хоп — поезія чи ні? Поки в Америці та в цілому світі сушать собі голову над цим запитанням, Гіманшу Сурі (Himanshu Suri) з веселої бруклінської банди Das Racist написав цілих 24 хайку про те, що хіп-хоп не помер (як дехто намагається стверджувати). Have fun! :-)

1
Hip-hop dies each year.
How many lives hip-hop got?
Is hip-hop a cat?

2
This ain’t reverting
back to your mom’s disco dog.
Technology.

3
Elder statesmen! Dads!
Turn down that autotune, son!
Your jeans are skinny!

4
“Improbably weird?”
Only if you’re looking in
from the outside though.

5
Nah Right never called
hip-hop “improbably weird”.
Thanks so much, Nah Right.

6
Jay-z’s Blueprint 3
Is just as weird as Weezy.
“Hater” is real weird!

7
Where near Jay’s old hood
does Sasha Frere Jones reside?
He cough up a lung?

8
Don’t disagree with
every thing he said but
why so alarmist?!?!

9
Gucci just dropped four
mixtapes. Sounds like hip-hop is
alive and kicking.

10
Are you suggesting
there are no new ideas
left to rap about?

11
Freddie Gibbs is dope
but so is Young Dro and like
ten other rappers.

12
Has rock been dead for
ages since it too builds on
older ideas?

13
Rock seems alive to
me. I saw a great band play
last night at Glasslands.

14
Stop trying to kill
rap. Matter of fact please let
it rock. Go away.

15
8 Yahoo! answer
pages all dedicated
to the death of rap?

Timekeeper of pop?
Who made you the time keeper
of hip-hop, New Yorker?

17
This is how I feel
when Anon. commenters talk
rap on BK Veegz.

18
Don’t like when Pitchfork
claims authority on rap.
Don’t like when you do.

19
Leave hip-hop alone.
What is this article ’bout?
Define hip-hop please.

20
You’re great grandfather
was Edgar Wallace. Mine was
some broke brown subject.

21
Why did I think you
were biracial for so long?
Writer payola?

22
Hip-hop is not dead.
Polka is dead. It died and
is not coming back.

23
Electro-rap and
Africa Bambaataa’s not
that different man.

24
Bambaataa sampled
Kraftwerk and that was back in
1982!!!
