With a little help from Lady Gaga, “Trap music” has migrated from Dirty South strip clubs to hip cosmopolitan dance floors. The contest winner—whose groggy vocals relied on a series of absurd hip-hop cliches (“posted in the trap strapped with the AK, aimin’ at your fitted cap,” “chopper in the chopper on the way to a sold out show,” etc.)—was announced, and an ambitious pitch-shifter discovered that the winning track’s vocals sounded remarkably similar to Lady Gaga herself Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Superstar.

SOAD is a good band in my opinion: they produce an original sound and they actually have lyrics that stand for something. 2. I could not bring myself to agree with “emo” music being good, or close to that.
