Exploring the Happy Society.
Guess you'll just have to pen one yourself.
Not my genre. If you pen one, though, I would be happy to study it.
Well, I'm not much of a rap fan, but I was intrigued by your Google search, so decided to try one of my own, and came up with a contender (sort of): Nas' "Getting Married."I'll copy a few of the lines suitable for a family-friendly blog:"I want a son to greet every mornin'Daughter and more sons tickle my feetWife smilin', tellin' me it's time to eat. I'm gettin' married . . . It was my dream for my queen to put a ring on the rideEven Martin Luther King had a fling on the sideThat's what the negative ones sayKnew my wedding would be one day but quickly is this day"The rest of the lyrics are perhaps more in the vein of conventional street poetry, and may be found here.
I'm sad that the image wouldn't format correctly! Still funny though!!
Black Sea:Nas is accepting the rules of marriage reluctantly, and, as you say, is still pre-justifying adultery.
Now if you google "pro marriage rap song" the Gruntled Center blog is the first hit. Hilarious.
gruntled, your search skills leave much to be desired,...there's 'let's get married' by Jagged Edge. quite a good song, btw...not 'rap' as such but well w/in the funky/r n' b domain.google it, give it a listen read the lyrics.
Randy, while I like the sentiment of "Let's Get Married," every source I see calls Jagged Edge an R & B group, rather than rap.
Another rapper, Paul Wall, said "There are so many (married) people out there that are ashamed of it... specifically rappers. They don't want people to know they're married, because they think it will taint their record sales or girls won't like them."http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/story/paul-wall-calls-for-rappers-to-celebrate-married-life_1078800
I know you're trying to make a point, but it seems like you could mention this, too. It gets at your research method, if not your argument. http://bit.ly/cZxXuq
Brett, that is an interesting link.On Saturdays I post humorous items, and that was all I was really going for here. The Google search result was humorous side effect of our class' search for appropriate songs to illustrate the various concepts we have studied.
