    Why so many rap songs about Iowa State?

    So we had the Comin thru song and I just saw this one Cyclone Nation - D-Rock - YouTube by D-Rock (Out of Long Beach California it looks like?) along with the Cornell Mann song (pretty horrible). Then theres the I-State song, then this one RED AND YELLOW (IOWA STATE REMIX BY CHRIS POGO ALLEN & CHI) - YouTube.

    Just random thought. Note to anyone curious about the songs-they are all pretty bad.

    Would you prefer a rock song about ISU?

    Why are there so few rap songs about Iowa State? I think we need more...

    Because it doesn't take much to put out a rap song.

    I'm sure it has everything to do with Royce White being a producer.

    because anyone can make a rap song, it doesnt really take talent. You just have to rhyme some stuff about the subject of the song and then you have to make some "beats" on a computer. thats why you hear 8 billion people call themselves dj's and rappers.

    Re: Why so many rap songs about Iowa State?

    I think Comin Thru is the best Iowa State song out there. (Obviously) 816 Boyz and Tech N9ne? Can't really get much better than that.

    Making a rap song is easy. Making a good rap song is not easy and anybody who believes otherwise has no idea what they're talking about.

    Kutt/Makzilla at the end! And yes, that's definitely the best verse!

    Re: Why so many rap songs about Iowa State?

    Need more ISU folk songs.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
