I never understood why he never had much more success, he was actually innovative for his time and that's something you rarely see out of white rappers.
The comments are hilarious on YouTube. One guy called him "Eminem's dad". Another asked, "Someone please tell what language this is?"
I remember that joint and I loved it. I didn't buy Snow's bullshit backstory of being Jamaican for one hot second, but I liked the song.Apparently, someone other than me still does.
I didn't buy Snow's bullshit backstory of being Jamaican for one hot secondRight???? Why did he even try it?
Now that's going waaaaaayyy back. I remember him. I never heard about him being Jamaican though. Just that he was from Canada. Of course, I was never deep into rap so maybe that is why I didn't know to much about him. Just the song which is the only one from him I know of.
Remember it? I'm remember Jim Carrey's parody of that song.
I remembered when people got mad at Vanilla Ice for rapping about a rough life that he never had.Snow kind of remind me of him.Judging my the comments onYT,understandably his "Jamaican" background was a joke. Some people think you can get away with doing other people's accents and or language ,but you can't. Some Liberians called out Michael Jackson when he sung Liberian girl because he sung it in Kiswahali. That probably would have been ok to the natives.. only if the language was the official language of Liberia.
I remember Jamaica being VERY unamused.
Yeah... well. I could mention culture appropriation for profit. I could mention the (uniquely?) American phenomenon of Black culture, music, body attributes, (except hair tho I still wonder to this day about all those white people and their curly-perms of the 70's & 80's), fashion and so on being so much better, cooler, more marketable etc when its done, worn, produced, created etc by anyone else but Black people.I could list 5 or 10 actual reggae artists who I would have called first for a paying televised gig but I won't.Or maybe it was one hit wonders from the 90's day at the L Word.
