Rap Shirts for White People Are Painfully Accurate

startedfromthetop.png

Whoa! Check it out! The internet did something funny again! Oh, internet. You're too much. The latest soon-to-be-viral phenomenon addresses a serious issue that many aren't sensitive to in our day and age -- that it's hard out here for a white person. So damned hard. And for those porcelain-fleshed, plaid-shorts-wearing beings so inclined to grasp onto any bit of culture and pretend it's their own, it's even harder.

Despite being in the highly diversified South Florida, we still have our fair share of white-boy bros who don't exclusively rap out to Macklemore and Eminem. They treat all rappers with the same feigned understanding. For those freckled fellows who shout "THIS IS MY SHIIIIIIIT!" upon hearing a song about coming up from the streets, Rap Shirts for White People is for you!

Yes, these are exactly what they sound like. They take famous rap lines and make them a little more relatable for all the crackers out there. What a good deed, amirite? Let's take a look at some of our favorites and read a few of our own.

Our little corner of the world often gets high praise for all of the attractive people who congregate here. It's hot, we wear less, and thus we gym often. At Tortuga Music Festival, things were no different from your average beach day. We spent it ogling above-average sunbathers.

To the sounds of Ziggy Marley and Eric Church, sundresses dropped, muscle shirts were tossed aside, and the beachside became supersexy. Though the sand was swarming with toned bods, what follows are just ten of the hottest concertgoers who caught our eye.

Looking dumb and having fun! That is our job.

South Florida is the best place to experience live music.

Hear me out on this, haters.

I'm not saying we have the largest, most diverse scene, or whether we do or don't have the coolest bands ever, of all time. Our venues aren't like necessarily far superior to those in major metropolises, equipped with the finest sound systems. But these necessary ingredients aren't really what make the difference between a good and amazing show. You know what is? The crowd.

We pretty much have, worldwide, the most involved audiences. We are a passionate people. We dance and sing and get crunk at almost every concert or club or house party that we host. Yes, us! We make fun happen.

The difference between our South Florida concert reality and that of other spots on the map really hit home for me when I flew up to DC last weekend to catch Neutral Milk Hotel at DAR Constitution Hall. I know, you're jealous. But let me finish my tale of woe, because even though I was lucky enough to see NMH live finally, this here is a story of some disappointment.
