Ever wondered why JAY-Z, NAS and 50 CENT don't rap like SNOOP, GAME and NIPSEY?

—It’s because they don’t speak the same.

Our #HipHopLinguistics research on this is out now in Language and Speech (doi.org/10.1177/002383…)!

And here's a thread with the abridged version.

@nienke_hoeksema @wanderlowie Any hip-hop fan can tell you West Coast and East Coast hip-hop sound different. There’s lots of reasons for this, but an important one is how rappers from these regions actually rap: their #flow.

Flow can be defined as the #rhythm and #melody of rap.

@nienke_hoeksema @wanderlowie Hip-hop is closely linked to the language variety of African-American English (AAE). We know that West Coast AAE and East Coast AAE don’t sound the same, but we don’t really know how they differ regarding #prosody.

Prosody is defined as the #rhythm and #melody of speech.

Thread: I'm a little bit bored, so let's talk a while about my #C64 #hardware collection, shall we? This setup is my #C64 workhorse. It is a German C64C equipped with a car TFT, two 1541-II floppies and it came with a 4x kernal switch.

#C64hardware 1/
The kernal switch gives me access to three other kernals beside the original C= kernal: JiffyDOS, SpeedDOS Plus and EXOSv3.

#C64hardware 2/
The alternative kernals include nice stuff like F-key functions for listing discs and speedloaders. Although I'm told JiffyDOS is the best(tm) speedloader I tend to use EXOSv3 most. A PRG with 81 block is loaded in 6s instead of 53s!

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.
