Is that dope enough indeed I paid the price to control the dice!
I'm more precise to the point I'm nice !
Let the music take control of your heart and soul!

Here from Andrew Gelman! I guess because rap is competitive, rapping about how good you are at rapping is actually "taking the high road" - because otherwise you'd be doing an attack ad against your specific opponent aha.

Also, it's fun to compare this with Kpop (Korean pop) where even the girl idol groups have a "rapper" and the rap is just used as a bridge in the song, and is generally about whatever the rest of the song is about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVM-LaB0tI4

I’m just another stupid lowbrow rapper
Shitting in your ears like a handy crapper
In one more month you won’t recall the words
Of this scrapheap pile of polished turds
There ain’t no tune or melody
No music here or harmony
Nothing to remember but a stupid rhyme
Rap is crap, just a waste of time

Crap rap – when you ain’t got no brain
Crap rap – when every track’s the same
Crap rap – sounds good if you’re insane
Crap rap – just the same old lame old dumb refrain, pointless words just circling the empty drain of endless repetition that numbs the pain of emptiness in a thoughtless brain
Crap rap! Crap rap! Rap crap! Rap crap!

Acting dumb to impress dumb girls
Just breeds more dumbness in a dumbed down world
The drummer used to be the one who couldn’t play
Now everyone can be tin-eared drummers today
No-one has to learn any music this way
Just no talent bums who like to say

Crap rap – just a waste of time
Crap rap – it only has to rhyme
Crap rap – for stupid slime
Crap rap – just the same old lame old dumb refrain, pointless words just circling the empty drain of endless repetition that numbs the pain of emptiness in a thoughtless brain

Crap rap! Crap rap! Rap crap! Rap crap!

The death of art, the end of song
You know that something’s gotta be wrong
When every note is stolen from
Another person’s brilliant song
When all you wanna do is whine and complain
How life’s not fair and you’re not to blame
For being so dumb and boring and plain
And only knowing how to play a football game

Crap rap – just a waste of time
Crap rap – it only has to rhyme
Crap rap – for stupid slime
Crap rap – just the same old lame old dumb refrain, pointless words just circling the empty drain of endless repetition that numbs the pain of emptiness in a thoughtless brain
Crap rap! Crap rap! Rap crap! Rap crap!
