Comment by Oscar666kta420swagEdit

This page is a trainwreck. No offense to whoever made it, but I really don't see it as necessary to differentiate this from 'comedy hip hop'. Although Odd Future and Lil B do satirize gangsta rap at times, they have a wide range of other types of songs (including, in Lil B's case, a fair few legitimate gangsta rap songs). Also why it only includes these two weak examples, instead of say Riff Raff or Dirt Nasty, is beyond me. "Meme rap" is just a derogatory term for rappers who found their start on the Internet, such as Yung Lean and C-Reezy, and isn't really linked to satirical rap at all.Oscar666kta420swag (talk) 06:08, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

It appears that this article just compiles instances in which a rapper's lyrical content has been described as "satirical" and uses it as a source in favor of "satirical hip hop" being a genre in and of itself. Lil B, OFWGKTA and Riff Raff are rarely described as being purely "satirical" artists elsewhere, although satire is sometimes a secondary theme in their work. 2601:7:D00:10AB:70E0:E900:2AD5:A092 (talk) 01:00, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Not only that, but the page mentioned artists like Denzel Curry and Chance the Rapper who are not remotely satirical in their content, as well as Viper who is not an intentional parody. Oscar666kta420swag (talk) 11:39, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Satirical hip hopComedy hip hop – Comedy hip hop + satirical hip hop were merged into the one article recently. Comedy hip hop is a much more popular genre name (351k vs 19k results in Google), as well as it has more connected interwiki articles. The current article is mostly about the comedy hip hop, while saying that satirical is a variant of it, so the moving should not be that controversial.

Also comedy hip hop article has x2 more views daily and overall (considering that the original article was less detailed than the satirical's one): https://pageviews.toolforge.org/redirectviews/?project=en.wikipedia.org&platform=all-access&agent=user&range=all-time&sort=views&direction=1&view=list&page=Satirical%20hip%20hop Solidest (talk) 10:55, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
