So I think one of the reasons I started CHH was to explore some new sub-genres of hip hop — people experimenting with the style. It probably derives from my personal boredom with a lot of hip hop. I guess like any genre, a substantial amount of it sounds the same. When I first heard this new track by Cage (https://catchyhiphop.wordpress.com/2010/06/17/cage-look-at-what-you-did/), I was uncertain what I thought. It is definitely growing on me though. It kind of has an emo-vibe to it (and I usually really dislike emo music), but this is different. I think that is why it is so appealing to me as I listen to it more and more. It kind of reinvents both hip hop and emo. Don’t let Cage fans read this though, I can’t imagine any would be happy to hear me call this song semi-emo.
Favorite parts of the beat start at :55 and 1:54
I guess what really matters is what you peeps think of it. Come on, let’s get some discussion going!
