2. stands for Anti Conformity; being against the action or behavior in correspondence with socially accepted standards, conventions, rules, or laws.
If you aint feelin it, its because you listen to that booty shakin, bling bling bullshit, gangsta rap.... and basically you'd rather hear songs about how rich some studio gangster is, how many hoes he got, how much beef he got with everyone, how sik his ride is, and basically YOUR soooo envious of these rappers you'd probably suck their dick just to hang out wittem for 10 seconds!
Anticon music isnt just for the white, candy flippn hippies with the back packs, just like gangsta rap isnt only for blacks or hispanics, because every mexican I know owns a tupac album and not many of them are gangstas-
Anticon is different but what the fuck you guys complaining about, evolve and adapt, appreciate new styles. I hate radio play but I'm not one to hate on the club scene and that crowd just because I am not a fan of the music. Stop with the hatin', if there werent groups like Anticon then you and I would suffer from "lack of variety" and we would all listen to the same ole' shit-
Jayfilet: Some Jay Z-
Dee: Thats fuckin gay, put this Anticon on!
2. Not necessarily hip-hop, but rather a new form of music that can be appropriately called "post-hiphop". Formed out of a growing discontent with the sheer homogeny and "status quo" elitism that has become the essence of mainstream rap.
A clear indication of a major paradigm shift, appearent in the world of hip-hop that is beginning to take place and will likely leave most of mainstream hip-hop's current audience (Neoconservative, white, suburban, rich kids) in the dust. Burying them in a future filled with spiritual emptiness that they seek to fill with turgid religious doctrines, contempt for art, and a distinctively post-modern sensibility which manifests in the form of bad taste and an empty, money-driven and meaningles life. With an absolutely hellacious midlife crisis and frequent divorces followed by equally unsucessful re-marriages.
