    I'm not sure how the general public picks and chooses what it wants to get upset about when it comes to rap lyrics and being offended or disgusted, but since Ross got so much negative publicity over his Molly r--- line a few years ago surely people would've flipped out over some lines had the Internet and media been as advanced in the 90s and early 2000s as it is today

    Take Big L for example who has several blatant serious mysoginistic lines about hitting women that had they broke coverage now adays there would be a media outcry against rap music

    "They say a real man won't hit a girl
    I guess I ain't real cause I beat b------s up" - danger zone

    "A girl ask for a ring I put one around her whole eye" - no skinz no endz

    What are some lines by prominent rappers that they probably couldn't have got by with today??

    What if Eminem wasn't white and a path for racist Americans to listen to rap music , imagine how badly the columbine line on rap god would've went over with the public

    “I take seven {kids} from {Columbine}
    Stand 'em all in line, add an AK-47, a revolver, a 9
    A MAC-11 and it oughta solve the problem of mine
    And that's a whole school of bullies shot up all at one time”

    Imagine the backlash now. I mean it’s literally censored on the explicit version

    Yeah but he said it again on rap god and no one gave a s---

    Because he's white and suburban white america make themselves think he's different than other rappers so they can enjoy rap music while also being racist

    A black rapper says this and ppl flip out

    Eminem would still pass today because he's a parody of a sociopath.

    I can't listen to 2001 anymore tho, especially when you know Dre's background

    true but the fact he was referencing something he said over a decade prior makes it not come off as too bad

    But yeah I could imagine Em could reference the Vegas/Florida shootings and people would be like ‘nah that’s just Eminem being Eminem’ etc, whilst others would catch flak for it. He said some of his nastiest s--- on Relapse and no one seemed to really care

    I still f--- her with no rubber and c-m inside her
    And have a son and a new brother at the same time
    And just say that it ain't mine, what's my name?" :kanye2:
