Isn't it called the "Rap + Hip Hop engineering & production" forum?

All those threads seem like legitimate questions for a newb looking for advice from people. Alot of people are not familiar with performing a search. Perhaps the OPs' wanted a perspective from those working in the genre, or only feel comforatable asking people who work in hiphop.

I guess this thread is gonna be bumped to it's proper place... https://www.gearslutz.com/board/moan-zone/

oh , dont get me wrong. im not bitching about it. im just curious. its the "why".. not the "dont do it"

i just see post like this

Fest and Lil Jon in the Studio

dual vocal effect

After 11 years of beatmaking, I finally got an MPC (60II)....

Tips: Programming Hats

fat sub bass sound - how do they do it

fall under hiphop prod and engineering... and are cool to read and i have learnt a lot from them.

the others i listed above seemed more of a general thing and not related to hiphop.
i still follow them and respond ... noting wrong with em. just curious. i hit "new posts" and all of the topics come up.

maybe "whatever" was kinda harsh...

It's probably because the colloquial/Blackberry-ready/Prince-ly "u" was used instead of the "you" as spelled in standard written English.

According to Butch Walker, rap's going through its "glam-rock" period...when every artist's name ends with three "Z's." Like "Bonz-z-z..."

(His words not mine).

Anyway, kids read the magazines and the album lyrics and it occurs to them that there's an art to incorrect spelling. And, as Andy Warhol said, "art is what the artist SAYS it is." Although I doubt his tone of voice would justify using caps-lock on ANYTHING he said...

For the record, I'm not "knocking" the use of the Princely "u," I just don't identify with it.

Oh, well. I guess "u" can't always get what "u" want...
