Anything honestly and on the YOLO K there actual is an argument there. it started as a joke to scream YOLO in round but there is an actual concept being...

 

L: The alliterative refuses to accept the inevitability of our deaths. Instead of enjoying life they run from death.

I: All value to life is lost if you refuses to live the one life you are given to fullest.

Alt: We should reject the affirmative and live life by the motto YOLO.

turn - since we only get 1 life, we shouldn't screw it up by doing dumb shit such as dooming the human race to extinction by not enacting the 1AC

 

perm do both - live life to the fullest and save as many lives as possible via the 1AC

 

also, 

 

 

Hip hop is inevitably marketed to white consumers- turns black culture into a commodity that can be tossed away

Hartigan 5- prof of anthropology @ UT, PhD from University of California, Santa Cruz

(John, South Atlantic Quarterly 104.3, Summer, "Culture against Race: Reworking the Basis for Racial Analysis//MGD")

One might be tempted to assume that Gilroy~’s stance is largely polemical, but his

AND

be able to do away with race, but seemingly not with culture.

 

Rap and hip hop are tools to be exploited by corporations- images of rap as a platform just entrench racism

Kitwana 2- fellow at the Jamestown Project, think tank @ Harvard

(Bakari, "The Hip Hop Generation," p. 9-11//MGD)

Let us begin with popular culture and the visibility of Black youth within it.

AND

that gave young Blacks a platform was the driving force behind our plight. 

 

 

Hip hop reinforces stereotypes-gives racism a green card

Kitwana 2- fellow at the Jamestown Project, think tank @ Harvard

(Bakari, "The Hip Hop Generation," p. xxi//MGD)

A final obstacle is the unprecedented influence Black youth have achieved through popular culture,

AND

inferiority and insulate the new problems in African American culture from redemptive criticism.

I don't have any but know there is alot of hip hop good literature. Also Perm dosn't work you still link and cause the impact only rejection of neg works. And even if we are given one life all value to life is lost making death meaningless. So the impact outweighs extinction because death is preferable.

 

Almost forgot and +rep for you sir.

What would the link be for the Hip-Hop K?  Just perm increase port security and stop listening to Soulja boy.

I feel like a YOLO K would be a spin off of Virillo, where the obsession of getting to the end doesn't let us enjoy the journey.  Focusing on avoiding death instead of living life drains VTL.   We should all live happy while we can even if we all die of global thermonuclear war.

 

Also, sadness is the root cause of war(i'm sure there's ev somewhere that says that)

Revolutionary rap much like Tupac's is not glorifying violence and misogyny, nor trying to be marketed and coopted – He’s producing a real representation of the community he grew up in.  His lyrics and philosophy attempts to eradicate these trends and produce a more peaceful society – Those who claim that he glorifies violence, capitalism and drugs and misogyny mask their general contempt for his essential identity and the attempt to carve an identity on the ontological void

Eldridge ’11 [Reginald, University of South Florida, “Shifting Blackness: How the Arts Revolutionize Black Identity in the Postmodern Westâ€, http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=4282&context=etd, JCook.] Accessed 1/26/13.

 

While these were (and are) valid critiques of rap music in general, [...] the real and the represented got blurredâ€Â¶ (Spirer).

 

 

 

 

Modern rap has been, on the whole, developed into a market and not a voice – Only a chance our alternative has a chance to solve without cooption and solvency deficits

Eldridge ’11 [Reginald, University of South Florida, “Shifting Blackness: How the Arts Revolutionize Black Identity in the Postmodern Westâ€, http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=4282&context=etd, JCook.] Accessed 1/26/13.

 

For marginalized people, [...] at the time.

 

 

 

 

These criticisms are merely fear of the creation of an identity and the power it gives the Black body – If you actually listen to the perspective and identity, the reverse is true.  It's not a question of who's listening, but a question of allowing the creation of identity on the ontological void

Ultimately, these attacks [...] the twentieth century.

Drake hardly falls under revolutionary rap - this is an autotuned 'masterpiece' by a child star brought up by a sterilized television network - far from Tupac's experiences. 'Yolo' is the perfect example of what Hartigan indicates as commodified black culture - take a look at the lyrics, it's about the glory of being '25 sitting on 25 mil', not of 'living and dying in the streets'

 

Tupac agrees on cooption - the thug life that can be the basis of autonomous economy and politics has become the very tool of auto-genocide

Shakur 92 (Tupac, rapper, Black Panther, thug, Code’s of the Thug Life, http://makavelisprince.com/2012/10/30/thug-life/)

 

The thug life is a tool of the enemy as it exists today, it must change. Outside forces and methods whose interests are being served by the hustlers, the crews have no dignity, they have no honor – and this must be corrected. A counsel must be called put a code to the thug life. We accept that the game will go on until our liberation. What we won’t accept is that the game will destroy us from within before we get another chance and rebuild. We will not allow ourselves to be played by the covert operations, cointelpro, and law intensity warfare waged by the United States government.

 

Your alt is 'We should reject the affirmative and live life by the motto YOLO.' nothing about 'living life by the motto YOLO' is competitive with doing the affirmative, additionally it's vague. The vagueness allows the turn - we define 'YOLO' as maximizing our own utility

Regardless, the Elridge evidence doesn't give alt solvency - drugs alcohol and sex definitely can't solve whatever the 1AC presented, case is a da to the k

Oh, no I wasn't supporting YOLO, just providing evidence for people that use rap in debate rounds. 

 

I agree a hundred percent that YOLO and rap is dumb. 

 

Although, I think your analysis of the thug life is very counter to the argument I'm making.  The argument is that, yes, it sucks and needs to be changed, but that at least it's the carving out of identity on the ontological void that is often faced in society, in terms of marginalization and oppression.

i think the argument that i'm trying to make is that, the thug life can be a way to exact change, but it can be coopted by the existing society. he's not trying to be coopted, but he is - distorting the message applies to yolo

 

and i think there's solid evidence that hip hop/rap can be used, and as part of an actual heartfelt appeal, can be highly effective and persuasive. however, running a yolo k as essentially a throwaway argument, takes away any persuasive ability that existed. that's why i think this argument in particular is morally bankrupt and apprehensible.

May I just say this really is a Nietzsche spin-off where we avoid the affirmation of life as an alt and turn it to YOLO and then shift the focus (as proven here) to if rap terminology can solve. Then even if we lose that debate we claim it is the message not where the message comes from. Essentially it focuses away from the fact we are "chill" with death and instead the fact we scream YOLO

My flow of the round would be Link - Nietzsche, Impact - Nietzsche, Alt - Circlejerk

 

YOLO is an acronym, not a methodology. It states a fact, and implied in it's cultural meaning there is this idea of maximizing your life by living without regret/fear. That's (sort of) a classic Nietzsche alt. It's best to just read Nietzsche and start the tag to the alt or name the K on the flow/file YOLO. Your alt is Nietzsche, and if not your just running around screaming YOLO which is vacuous and total circlejerking
