    That's because it is.

    Making up some silly genre for them (emo rap?) isn't going to help anything.

    It's reminds me of WAAAAAY watered down Atmosphere.

    EDIT:

    Atmosphere

    I'd almost say they were completely ripping this song off.

    I can defanitly see where your coming from with the atmosphere feel, but their defanitly a little more fast paced if i had to relate them to anyone it would be a mix of the flobots and atmosphere..Thought they are none of these their Houghton obviously...

    Anyways i was thinking they were like a post-rap, political rap or something along those lines mostly cause they dont rap about bitches and drugs

    A lot of rappers don't rhyme about "bitches and drugs". That goes back 30 years. I wouldn't call it something new by any means.

    Also, they rhyme a little TOO fast, they don't enunciate, and everything just seems to jumble together. It was really hard to understand in parts.

    Why do they need a genre anyway? I don't think I've ever heard a musician actually give a shit about what people labelled them as unless it was something derogatory. You don't see Mos Def worrying about what to label himself. You and your friends shouldn't either.
