Rapper Catalogging


One of the most interesting videos I’ve ever run across concerning rap is a clip that’s circulated youtube for almost a decade now, I think. It’s labeled as an “experiment” video, a “science project,” by Lupe Fiasco, aptly named “Switch,” in which Fiasco switches his style of rap every few bars (?..a ? because I don’t actually know anything about music measurements…) His “switching” showcases some categories that most rappers can fit into, even if it’s fitting into more than one.

It’s really fun to watch it, think of rappers and see which “category” they fit in. And still a neat video despite being a bit older.
