Why do chicanos like rap is a blanket statement......its accurate but bogus. The world going back to at least RAGTIME have looked to black people for music. American blacks have dominated music from one end of the world to the next. Why do I listen to some rnb,rap,motown? Personally because NOTHING compares to it. I cant find that style-rythm-beat-in my own culture, the closest we have to anything like that would be the Raggeaton, which by the way is bootlegged, African, music. Yeah it is sung in spanish-but the beat-stytle is PURE jaimaican-Island-African and mixtures of African American.
Your question is quite stupid. Simple answer is chicanos love black music-because chicanos LOVE black music. I mean come on! This chicano aint going to be listening to black music unless they love the shit.
So what? Your people dont give it up like they should, your whole westcoast getdown is bootlegged. The inked up-lowlow-flagging-red/blue, DRE-SNOOP ICE T , looking westcoast brother is a rip off of chicano culture. But you dont want to admit that. Your people dont dress-getdown or look like some 1990 crips and bloods anywhere outside of Los Angelos. Lowriding and vehicle modification didnt start in the South my nigga, it was brothers from Los Angelos who introduced it to blacks nationwide thru videos made by blacks who grew up around MEXICANS.
Another thing, dont put the way chicanos tattoo in a "tattooing in general ctegory" because I could do the same and say black music is simply 'music" and blacks didnt invent it because people of all cultures have had music all thru history.
Its a BS argument. The art-style of tattooing chicanos in the USA do, started amongst my people. It had never been seen outside of the barrios of the Southwest. It didnt start in Mexico. As well as the style of dress-the vehicle modification. These things all started amongst my people. The look of the crips and bloods, is a throwback to the style of the 1970 chicano convict.
Your people got a problem copying my peoples lifestyle and then pretending they didnt because they sagged the dickies instead of pulling them up or wore different patterned flannels, or modified jeeps instead of Chevy Caprices'.
FACT OUTSIDE OF LOS ANGELOS> BLACKS DID NOT GET DOWN WITH THE INK_CRIPPING_LOW LOWS.
FACT OUTSIDE OF LOS ANGELOS>CHICANOS DID AND HAD OLDER VARRIOS THEN LOS ANGELOS MEXICANS. The form of tattooing we are arguing about was done FIRST by chicanos in EL PASO-SAN ANTONIO.
HE DIDN'T ASK WHY CHICANOS LIKE RAP! WHAT IF SOME OF "HIS PEOPLE" DO LOOK LIKE SOME 90'S CRIPS OUTSIDE OF LA?
ARE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE THAT OR SOMETHING, EVEN IN LA? I DON'T SEE HOW THE LOOK OF THE B'S & C'S IS A THROWBACK OF THE CHICANO CONVICT, BUT MAYBE SOME IN THE PAST LOOKED THE SAME.
HOW MANY CONVICTS DIDN'T LOOK THE SAME IN THE 70'S?
WHY DO YOU ALWAYS BRING UP THE SOUTH? YOU ACT LIKE BROTHERS ARE SUPPOSED TO ALL BE FROM THE SOUTH OR SOMETHING. WTF IS INK CRIPPING LOW LOWS? YOU SAY SOME OF THE MOST RETARDED SOUNDING CHIT IN THIS FORUM EVER! I THINK THE PERSON WITH THE PROBLEM IS YOU!
