GDP — Useless Eaters


He hates everything; listeners win

Stephen Carradini April 7th, 2011

Here’s a partial list of things that rapper GDP is angry about: rampant drug use, alcoholism, loose sex, children as a result of that loose sex, corporations running everything, excess destroying the environment, aimless youth, cult of celebrity, posers and even rappers.

Example rap: “What kind of person could I possibly become when my personality is dependent on a drug / And usually more than one, ’cause too much of anything is never enough.”

In short, GDP hates modern rap. That’s enough to make me recommend it to you. But before you think this is an “ABC Afterschool Special,” note this choice line: “Fucking gas is too expensive, man / Better send some more fucking troops / Start a fucking draft.”

Yes, he also hates senseless war, poverty, overmedication, taxes, FEMA … OK, pretty much everything. He’s anti-authoritarian and anti-proletariat. I’m not sure who GDP likes, but his upset insights are delivered in a brutal, brittle, confrontational style that grabs my ears and doesn’t let go. Pair his excellent rapping with grimy, grinding, claustrophobic beats, and his “Useless Eaters” album becomes easily my favorite of the year so far in that genre.

You can stream the whole thing here, and I advise you do, no matter what type of rap you like.
