Kid Cudi makes music that's pretty polarizing. People either love it or hate it, and both sides are pretty vocal.

Snoop Dogg, Jay z, and Kayne West are the only rappers I really know

 

So I guess my favorite is Kayne West..

Has anyone heard of Childish Gambino?

 

He's the black guy on Community, and he raps.

 

His lyrics are really good.

I don't care about his lyrics. The flow was good and his beat was good.

 

Good post man.

I did notice something though "squash the beat right now like sausages"....

 

I don't know where you get the idea good lyrics from, they're sewn together well i'll grant that but by way of actually meaning something i think he's going more for the flow of the lyrics than anything else.

"E.E. Cummings on her face, now that's poetry in motion"

"Took the g out your waffle, all you got left is your Ego"

"And my clique make that De Niro so it’s time to meet the fockers"

 

I think they're clever.

Mmm...i mean sure but i have heard significantly better. I heard the de niro comparison from "The Mexican" starring brad pitt.

 

I don't know, maybe i'm expecting a bit too much from todays music.

 

I'm with you on him not being absolutely fantastic. His flow was nice and the beat was cool but overall I felt like it was the same punchline rap formula everyone seems to think they need these days.

 

Also, his voice was the most irritating thing I've heard since Wayne.

 

 

I'ts a dead genre to me these days

 

I resent that statement. There are plenty of artists that are doing amazing things with the genre; taking the mainstream image as the sole representation of Hip Hop is incredibly short-sighted.

I really can't see your vision.

 

For me all i see is mainstream bubblegum hip hop, or these "underground" artists (oh i love that meaningless term) who sound like theyve spent 90% of their time searching a thesaurus for new ways to say old shizzle, and the other 10% of that time advocating just how non-mainstream they are, that is until they get a taste of power and sell-out.

 

 

Then you haven't searched enough, to put it frankly. I'll list the artists I posted before just to show a very small amount of the high-quality artists you could find: Camp Lo, Cannibal Ox, Deltron 3030, JR Swinga, Exile, Little Brother, MF DOOM, Mos Def, Quasimoto & Solillaquists of Sound, not to mention ones I didn't mention like Aloe Blacc, Q-Tip, The Roots & Sound Providers. Nas was a fudgeing fool, tool, and muppetbag when he said that Hip Hop was dead, and undercut any artists making an effort by saying so. Ironically, anyone who agrees with this statement only shows their own obsession with the mainstream they hate so much. That's the only reason it would be a focal point in their opinion on the current status of the genre.

 

You complain about mainstream hip hop when they are merely reiterating what your precious old school artists were saying back in the 90s. You're mad at "empty" gangbanging lyrics from Waka Flocka or Young Jeezy, but love the same exact themes from Tupac or Snoop. You condescend to people who like the mafioso rap lyrics from artists like Rick Ross, but wet your pants at the same themes from Notorious. I find it funny that you'd even include Jay-Z in your hallowed collection of rappers, since he hasn't changed his subject matter at all (which isn't all that wholesome or "classic" in the first place) and is STILL relevant in mainstream media.

 

I'd contend that you like the old style of music and since it conveniently fits in with that "hip hop is dead" image that's so popular among hip hop "fans" these days, you chase that ideology as well in order to fit in and seem more conscious.

 

So what if the mainstream scene isn't wholesome and "thoughtful"? It can be argued that it hasn't been that way since groups like N.W.A. or the Dogg Pound hit the radio. The thing is that music is a subjective art form. People still enjoy what plays on the radio today. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean the genre is dead.

Different day, same shizzle.

Nas, their style of rap is different though. Nas is more into his lyrics, Jay slides more towards his storytelling.

I like how Jay talks about the cash and Nas is the one talking crap.

I'm gettin ready to fudge up the industry status quo

I'm lyrically and empirically gifted,

Imma surprise yall like when Oj got acquitted,

When I battle people it's just unfair,

I hold it down and yall are unaware,

I put more damage on the mic that game does 50,

All my shiz is real and that's no mystery,

I would keep going with the rap and make you look even worse,

But I really don't feel like calling in a nurse!

 

Still working on my raps o.o If anyone wants to battle? ;D

I don't know anyone who smokes that bumps Wiz Khalifa; they all listen to Project Pat, Triple 6 Mafia, Mac Dre, and 2Pac.

yo I rap too, we should battle some time. This is an unfinished rap I'm working on.

 

 

Disasterous, I mastered this.

Killin y'all rappers in one shot, like Atticus.

Boo Radleys can't handle this.

Dude in his prime, Mickey Mantle of poetic lines.

Not tryna get signed, this rap sht's a hobby just to past the time.

But I wouldn't mind gettin a dime for every rhyme.

If I had nickel for all of those, I'd be the next Nicholas Biddle minus the hoes.

We the joe schmo's, and we fudgein with the pros.

The next Van Goghs, Thoreaus, and Edgar Allen Poes.
