This is a door. Said door is open. If you're easily offended by spooky language, well, there it is. I'm sure the world on the other side of this door consists entirely of puppies riding rainbow slides into inflatable pools of ice cream. Promise.

For those of you that stayed, or those of you who still aren't quite sure what this post is about despite the headline, welcome. This is a thread to post and discuss quality rap. Drake and Lil' Wayne can show themselves out. Since our previous guests were raised in a barn, the door out is still wide open.

This is a place for real rap.

Obviously this is only a small sample of the great rap out there. I'm sure our good Lord will be kind enough to pick up some of the missing pieces. The best advice I can give is to just keep clicking the related video sidebar to see just how far the rabbit hole goes. You never know what you're going to find just aimless meandering YouTube for awhile.

Censoring rap is a crime. Fight the power.
