  1. I listen to Yanix, and I can assure you that the person who asked such a question looks ridiculous in this case, because no one else judges a person's mental abilities from the music they listen to. I would not call the lyrics of this artist stupid and direct, they have punchlines, interesting rhymes are built, and all this together sounds fresher than the usual Russian hip-hop listener. You don't need to ask about the success of Yanix, it has long made itself felt, and for the fifth year it has been demonstrating its status with branded items. About tights and syrup-clearly taken from the text of Galata at the battle with Yanix in 2013, and a person familiar with the artist's work and lifestyle knows that nothing connected Yanix with syrup and does not connect anything, just like with tights . The Yanix described in this question is a four-year-old Yanix that talks about money, drugs, girls, and so on in its tracks. Yanix is a favorite of the new school of Russian rap, which has an original flow, and it is also respected by many rappers, including representatives of the old school. Speaking of the intelligence of Yanix listeners, the question is about the intelligence of people who ask similar questions.

  2. I myself listen to Janix and trap music in principle, and it always seemed to me that this music should be blunt and straight as a stick. The sillier and simpler the texts , the better. And Yanix copes with this task perfectly, his songs literally crumble into memes, and he looks as ridiculous as possible.

    But recently it so happened that I came across his target audience, and here's what I managed to find out: these are young people mostly under the age of 18 (you can check in the search for his vkontakte group), who are obsessed with clothing brands worse than Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. They are, of course, attracted to Yanix's image of “success” and the themes it conveys: ostentatious consumption, hangouts, money, and fame.

    In principle, these children are not worth worrying about: syrup in Russia has long been codeine-free, there is nothing so terrible about smoking and alcohol-teenagers are experimenting, and most likely the mother will not give money for clothes (crisis), the only danger is that the child can get frostbite while walking in tights in winter.

  3. I also listen to Yanix, in any case, I've been playing his first two albums on repeat.

    It should be understood that this is very frivolous music, it does not imply the presence of any “tru”, like Basta or Suitcase Clan. The usual representations that were in Russian ten years ago (starting with Steam, probably, which made “bounces” in 2005). It's just that now they sound more fashionable, they have even more show-offs, the requirements themselves have changed — the songs should have even less meaning and even more swag (sorry). Yang Yani copes with this task with a bang, even if he translates almost verbatim texts of Americans like Juicy J. Of course, you can't believe in his image, but that's why he's an image. In this respect, Yanix is not much different from the Big Race Boss, for example.

    As for music, here Yani is head and shoulders above almost all Russian rap. He has a very groovy flow, he does exactly like the Americans, without pretending to “rap in Russian” with its eternal longing and sacrifice of form for the sake of meaning. The beats are also all right-Yanix's music really rocks and amuses, and you don't need more from her.

    Listen to his tracks:

    Yanix – Ambitions

    Yanix-Dead Presidents

    Yanix – Papin

    Yanix – Gangbang

    Yanix-All Over the Place club from Nowhere

    And while listening, keep in mind that this is “rap in itself” — it may be made for a wide audience, but it is created according to the laws of the genre, which should have excellent flow, a lot of show-off and stories about a rich life.

  4. I've never understood what people find in such “creativity” – not beautiful, not clever, not vital, not funny. Nothing to catch at all. And about memes-I've never met one related to the subject in my life. Actually, Yanix is a smallish figure, one of the many such ones that are full, there were a lot of them in the West back in the noughties and now there are a lot of them. To mention him once again is to create an extra hype for him. Fans of this kind are definitely not very smart citizens, and moreover they are also devoid of taste.

  5. Absolutely nothing.

    Judging a person's intelligence by their musical taste is nonsense. You can read scientific articles about research on the human psychotype by what kind of music they prefer. There may still be some research going on, but I don't know about that anymore. In any case, there is not much to say about general intelligence, only in individual cases.

  6. Apparently, this is something like a Pharaoh. If I'm right, then I don't understand how you can listen to it seriously, knowing the Russian language. Russian-language okolorep is generally very pathetic, ridiculous, unmusical and too kitschy. Probably, you have to be quite an amoeba in terms of intelligence so that you don't want to turn it off.

  7. I think it's normal for people to listen to people that no one has ever heard of

    perhaps people feel connected to them, for example, they were born in the same village, or suffer from the same disease

  8. I wouldn't judge a person's intelligence if only one musical preference is known. I do not know who Yanix is, but I see sarcasm in the question.

    It is quite possible that the person is intellectually developed, but the music of the above character touches some hidden strings in his soul (perhaps not even clearly realized). For example, the words of a song remind a person of an important event from childhood, or the music is similar to the music of another (favorite) artist.

    Yes, and this is normal when a person has a variety of musical preferences. For example, I enjoy listening to Chopin and Rachmaninoff, I like going to the Philharmonic, but I also like the band Iowa, although I understand that the cultural value of their songs is very doubtful. For myself, I explain this by saying that I like the timbre of the singer's voice.
