K’O Qua – ‘Niagara’

This track has a lot of what most rappers use nowadays. The same type of beats with the higher more intricate notes repeated throughout the track. The rapping itself isn’t bad though, but I really wasn’t a fan of the lyrics I’ll be honest. It kind of raps and lists all the reasons I don’t really listen to rap music. I’m not a fan of “Shake that ass, back that ass up” kind of scene. Granted rock and metal explore some hypersexual areas – just look at Steel Panther (full of not so subtle innuendos and some insensitivity). The thing is, they kind of know that they’re making a large joke out of it but a lot of the time rap culture is incredibly serious and the way it’s worded sometimes is just something I can’t get behind. This, unfortunately, is one of those occasions and I just couldn’t gel with it.
