Surprise Study Finds Rappers Use Brains

Yeah, I’m a music critic now.  What about it?

During the freestyle rapping, there was increased activity in an area of the brain that is responsible for motivation of thought and action (called the medial prefrontal cortex). At the same time, there was decreased activity in brain regions that normally play a supervisory or monitoring role (dorsolateral prefrontal regions).

The study went on to note that the wave patterns of rappers’ brains during nightclub shootings, assaults on record label producers, domestic violence situations, and appearances on VH-1 reality shows registered slightly between those seen in the brains of small mammals and the center of potatoes.  Jay-Z’s brain activity during Obama’s fundraisers were consistent with an adolescent either driving drunk or having an orgasm.  It was kind of inconclusive. 

Thank God nobody’s done this study yet on bloggers.
