Offbeat: The latest in the awful rapper game: BANGS’ Sudanese slang

  • We didn’t consider that there might be a rapper out there with skills even lesser than Boostalk‘s, but it appears Sudanese spitter BANGS has him beat. Sample rhyme: “Let’s sit in those two chairs alone/watching a movie/so we can see what’s going on.” So deep. On the plus side, at least we still have Chuggo. (Hat tip Andrew Sullivan)

Music, World: Mexico tries looking out for the emo kids who might get beat up

  • Are you emo? You may get persecuted. Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission says that people who wear skinny jeans, listen to Taking Back Sunday, cry into their journal and have silly haircuts are in danger of attacks from others. Well, duh! It’s because you guys listen to emo. We understand. Here, for your own safety, Mexican teens, we’re introducing you to The Hold Steady. Thank us later. source
