Chris Webby “Let’s Do It Again”
The Irony of Chris Webby and “Let’s Do It Again”
We’ve been down this road before. Apparently, white boys rapping is a thing again. If you checked out this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards, the always-anticipated cyphers of known, on-the-verge, and unknown rappers across the globe rapping in… oh hell, if you don’t know what a cypher is, you shouldn’t be on this site. Anyways. each cypher seemed to have a de facto white rapper to add to the flavor. Now here’s the thing about white rappers – they always get compared to Eminem, because they are both white, and Eminem is easily one of the best rappers ever, regardless of race. Secondly, they are either positioned as white rappers or white guys who rap. White rappers range from the exalted like Eminem to the regarded like Mac Miller. White guys who rap range from the Marky Marks of the world to Macklemore (Maybe? I don’t know, you tell me.). Where does Chris Webby exist in this Ph scale of hip hop? Who the hell knows.
I will say this. Chris Webby, Huey Mack, and Asher Roth all love to rhyme about partying. Trapping and rapping is the black equivalent of partying and rapping, as rappers base their material on the sum of their experiences. And apparently getting white boy wasted is par for the course. The legacy of The Beastie Boys is still shaping popular culture decades after their initial impact. Whether rappers like Chris Webby can carry that mantle for an entire classification of music remains to be seen.
