Country Rap Tunes




Ah, the summer. As if there needed to be a seasonal excuse to listen to some down home style great rap music. No excuse, no yearly time is best, but, there is something about the heat, about driving around with open windows blasting country-fried rap tunes on a a hot as hell day that just makes it all feel so right. It's just great listening weather.

Now the uninitiated ask, what are Country Rap Tunes? Short answer: basically any song the late, great Pimp C would declare to be a Country Rap Tune. Short description: southern, usually more organic sounding beats, leaning more towards live instrumentation, sometimes an organ, sometimes a sung hook, sometimes none of this applies. Except the southern part, but that only applies 95 percent of the time. For those of you finding your way here from www.borntobenervous.blogspot.com, I'll describe the music putting forth the same down home, back porch type good vibes--although with a slightly different aesthetic--that's you'd get from listening to King Harvest or Rockin' Chair or anything else off The Band's second album.
Let's not get it twisted, it doesn't mean country singers rapping, or rappers singing country. That's not it at all. Big K.R.I.T. lays it out pretty well on the first track, and it should give you a general idea of the musical and lyrical themes that follow.
