I couldn't resist being 1 of the many people who copied this post for pasting as a show of agreement with the content:
The reviews are coming in and they're all GOOD! Some of my fav quotes about SuperMan by Motuphi include "You can't like Tupac and not like SuperMan by Motuphi...His vocals still betray that he used to be able to perfectly imitate Tupac when he played clubs in Detroit, before Rap and Hip-hop became diluted and defiled by the newer generation of diss-masters that corrupted the genre' and left it laying for dead...SuperMan is something a Rapper who cares about his people and fans would write to try to empower them..."
and then there's some mean-spirited reviews like "Motuphi sure showed Eminem how to write a song with the words "Superman" in it...no wonder Eminem is afraid to sign such a master Rapper, he's afraid Motuphi will wake his fans up and then they'll turn on him for brainwashing them to their own destruction..."
and this one is good, too "Motuphi wrote the most awesome Gospel song ever written when he penned SuperMan, and to think he sampled his own music for the beat! Man, I'm stupefied! I already bought the MP3 AND the ringtone! I love that the ringtone ends with "When they're lookin' at me they see a god among men"...I get such a kick out of that, I keep missing calls to let it play all the way through...People hear it and they're all like 'Who IS that?' They can't believe it! They think it's some long-lost old school track someone just discovered...I don't tell 'em it's new...I can't stop listening to this song!"...
the best has to be this one though "Have the Muslims and Islamics heard this yet? They NEED to! It's the proper mentality they're supposed to have about being chosen people of God-Allah: relieving unnecessary suffering, not causing it...If people don't support this artist who's totally recreating the Rap genre' for the better and taking it back from the famous ghetto-fabulous fools out there destroying Hip-hop, they deserve whatever they get"
"I've never heard anything like this before...not since Rap first started, anyway...this takes it back to when Rap was an artform, when it was GOOD music, doesn't it? Betcha' the current famous rappers would hate for this to get out there, it'd spread like wildfire and they'd lose their fanbases..."
"I like how this song is about being a positive individual...has anyone ever heard that travesty with the same title by Eminem? It's all about himself and he personalizes it with his name...Motuphi mentions God by name and then leaves the identity of the singer open for any and all to personalize it to themselves...true genius"
"The perfect Rap/Hip-hop song...There's nothing on the radio now that can touch it...Reminds me of Tupac for some reason"
"I always knew Motuphi was a musical genius...he was always Detroit's best kept secret, but it wouldn't be that way if the famous rappers from that city weren't stricken with inferiority complexes...I try to see it from their perspectives and I can understand how Motuphi can make them afraid of losing their fame. In light of that, I'm surprised Motuphi hasn't been mysteriously killed already, because eventually there'll be a smart audience again who'll jump over 40 Eminems, Jay-Zs, Kanye Wests and Li'l Waynes just to get to 1 Motuphi"
"Is that a diss on the fans of other rappers or just on them? He talks about slave-clones not being able to stop being slaves long enough to make positive impacts on Earth for God...that's a diss, isn't it? Diss or not, it's true, isn't it? I bet this guy is white, too, ain't he? Why can't a brutha write rap like this?"
"You know I'm gonna' do it, 'cuz I'm a super man'...the man IS a god among men, the only rapper I'll still listen to...the rest are just parasites hittin' the news with parasitical behavior, it's sad...Motuphi should be the representative of the genre', so people can understand that it used to be a well-respected craft back in the day"
"How is this guy not famous and I have to endure the shit my radio keeps bombarding me with? Ain't there no one in music with any sense left? I'd buy the CD just for this song, no bullshit, I looked for it online today and can't find nothin' but MP3s and ringtones...that's just sad...finally, after all these years, a good rapper pops up and we can't even buy his CD"
"The Eminem video doesn't deserve to be related to this song, it's a travesty, all about nothing...I'm now Motuphi's biggest fan and I'm going to blog about how inferior Eminem must feel to Motuphi to not be trying to sign him to his label..."
"If I was a record exec, I'd see dollar signs when I hear this, especially if the guy is white"
"This dude has GOT to be a brother!"
"You can't tell if he's Black or White. That'll work against his success because the other rappers will be afraid of him for that"
"But, wait: Motuphi is white, right? I thought he was half-Black and just looks white...he SOUNDS Black when he rhymes and his shit is BANGin', too...I'm jealous, I wish I woulda' wrote this shit, damn!"
"A well-kept secret, almost as big as Motuphi is, himself, is that his wife plays that Bass line in the song"
