    INFP Rappers

    Hi everyone,

    I've been listening to loads of rappers recently. Like a lot of 'decent' and 'educated people', until a few years ago I based my opinion of rap of the charts full of young men bragging about the size of their bitch's derriere and avoided it like the plague. Hearing some bands that mixed rap into a genre I didn't have the same preconceptions about has gradually turned me back to it, and recently I've been discovering a new wave of rappers from London that can be better described as philosophers and poets, with a message to change society from the destructive path they perceive it on. It turns out rap was like this back in the 80s and early 90s too.

    As I've got more into it, I've realised just how INFP friendly the medium of hip hop is when conducted like that. Rap allows you to express emotions, deep emotions in a way that no-one is ever going to take advantage of you for. Also, I perceive a lot of rap performers as being quite introverted, with eyes shut and face hidden by a large baseball cap when performing.

    So I've been on the scout for INFP rappers and I think I've struck gold: Plan B.

    Plan B has had two number 1 albums in the UK, and also acted in films to great acclaim and directed a well received film, Ill Manors, about 8 teenagers growing up in the same desperately poor area of London he's from trapped in a cycle of violent, shallow lifestyles, ignorant of their own wasted potential. There's such anger in his music sometimes, but I think it hides an idealist with a very big heart.

    He made this speech at a Tedx event, It's 20 odd minutes so a long watch but WELL worth it, it's mainly this which I base my decision that he's INFP on.



    He seems to get really genuinely emotional retelling his story at times.

    So yeah... sorry for the ramble but I'm becoming hooked on the strength of emotion people are able to convey in this medium when they're not talking about drugs and glorifying gang culture.

    Some other good philosophical raps:

    This is another call to young people to make something of themselves despite the world, also covers the topic of black history - this guy often talks about knowledge and the need to read.

    And this (which is improvised)


    So... if you managed to endure that scarily long post with it's rambling emotions and wide eyed blinking, what do you think?

    The thing about rap/hip hop that first drew me toward it was the rhyming in a rhythm that was harmonious with the beat. The rhythm of the rapping would get my head bobbing as did the beat. But nowadays, most of the commercial rappers rely almost completely on the beat and don't any bit if rhythmic/musical sensibilities. The content of the lyrics in commercial rappers don't even deserve a second glance. It's very shallow and for lack of a better word.......just stupid haha. Yeah, if you listen to rappers in the 80s and early to mid 90s, there was so much more depth in the lyrics and they were more thought provoking, and they used more clever word play and used a lot of metaphors.

    This wasn't early 90s, it was late 90s early 2000s but certainly more like the high quality rap/hiphop that I like :





    I thought it was very interesting that you brought up rappers having their faces covered by large hats being a sign of introversion. I've never thought of that before. I kind of always thought of rappers as being extroverted, especially those that can free style. I probably couldn't free style for the life of me. I tried writing my own rap lyrics when I was in high school. I thought I was pretty legit at the time but now when I look back, a lot of it was very corny haha.

    I don't get the vibe from him really but it's harder to tell with rappers, I have no idea with what growing up in such a harsh and emotionally repressed environment does to an INFP.

    I think Tupac was very extroverted. Concerning the content of a lot of his rap lyrics and in his poetry, I can see the NF. But considering all of the songs he recorded, there were a lot of original releases even after his death, it seems he was very task oriented so I think he was more likely a J than a P. But I guess FP's could work hard at things that they feel passionate about, but I think he was more likely an ENFJ.

    Yeah bro. Uniqueness is valued in art. Art is valued as unique. If we paint something crazy, or rap something crazy, people value it.

    you know how owhen people give speeches, the first 30 seconds ur just like watching them like a hawk to see if they are weird and unique

    well, when you start rapping, it bypassses that 30 seconds, and says "yes im unique, but here, i made it artful so you will like it"

    freestyle rap is great because if you hesitate you cant do it, and it is quicker tempo than making up rock lyrics

    probably about the same speed as doing some comedy witty thing, which i would suck at

    i can freedraw like an awesome mofo

    freestyle martial arts i suck at because i just dont care, i should stop caring about being so damn tough

    anyway, good stuff mate

    edit: this is a bit raw but the fact of the matter is these people are connected to the heart, where as fake rappers dont actually freestyle on film, this is actually freestyled, there imght be a few written lines they remembered and put in but its nothing like most people that write the whole thing, you can tell they are actually freestyling

    its real, when you dont hesitate, you act from the ego which is a mix of the id and superego, so it can be very rough and vulgar




    Okay shit I'm about to record a freestyle and post it up on this bitch

    I like that last video you posted.

    Tupac was an ENFP. It's pretty clear when you watch interviews with him.
