I honestly don’t care if these guys want to be rappers.
They have free time and disposable income, do whatever you like. My suggestion though, if you want to be taken seriously that they don’t regurgitate every single tired cliche of hip hop.
Take Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie aka Sexy Bologna for instance.
If there was a make a hip hop video starter kit, he has followed it to a tee. In the hood, wife beater, sagging pants, colorful cars, Money Cash Hoes lyrics and bunch of dudes with no shirts on standing around doing nothing.
The only thing was missing was the Twodels and that is actually what I wouldn’t mind seeing.
You can do better.
