Like rock 'n roll before it, the meteoric rise of hip hop culture resulted in a number of unfortunate byproducts, all of which involve Uncle Kracker. For a third byproduct that'll make you Smile much, much more, check out White People Rapping Poorly.
The creative spawn of a bored-over-winter-break BC sophomore, WPRP's a hilariously cringeworthy blog boasting vids of random white dudes busting their freshest rhymes interlaced w/ commentary, all encompassing the tag line: "Science has shown that for every Eminem, there are approximately 598,467 white people that try to rap but can't" -- and as a result, always end up using festive gift bags. Local awkwardness includes a bandana-donning trio from Peabody in a rap battle next to the family's backyard in-ground pool; another Trinity College rap maven attempting to diss Sam Adams while dropping as many Hub town names as possible; and a one-minute Tufts admission video eloquently billed as "not that bad, in the sense that a drive by shooting isn't that bad when you compare it to the genocide in Darfur" -- so...welcome to Tufts? Go Jumbos! There're also mind-blowing displays of rap gone wrong like a sketchy mustachioed dude recording (as people nervously glance in his direction) in front of a computer at the local public library, and the coup d'etat, an aspiring rapper named Chuggo and his desperate NSFW plea to women entitled "Come on F*** A Guy", which includes the lyrics "I put mayonnaise on everything, that's how I eat"... yeah, no we get it, Chuggo.
Because waiting is the hardest part, hit their Twitter feed to find out if your latest pale-faced rap made the cut, or if you'll have to make a few more mix tapes before you'll finally get that Follow Me you've been looking for.
