There is a new NPR rap done by a kid out of Oregon. It's name-drop central and it is burning up the blogs at NPR.org. It's very clever, but we at WBEZ think that it is a bit trite and overdone. White geek rapping is so 2007. But we could be wrong and the kid gets points for using the All Things Considered theme song for the beat. What do you think? Are we just cynical big city a--holes or is this awful?
I'm not a reviewer. But I know some people that are. So in the next couple days, be on the lookout for some objective reviews from music-scene luminaries. You are welcome, kid.
