That’s ridiculousthe irony of this thread, mfs basically naming EVERYONE
But i'll agree that Juelz Santana and Joey Bada$$.
But the disrespect on HOV and Styles P. Yall mfs really just naming anyone
I'm glad people are seeing right through Kendrick though. He ain't a lyricist compared to the greats, but he does have the concepts down pat. It's just that people OVER HYPE the f*ck of his lyrical ability. He's good, not NICE AF like a Nas or AZ.
Fab actually should get more praised for being as witty as hov
He did everything well except crafting hits. The tread is about RAPPING ABILITY. Canibus is one of the definitions of RAPPING ABILITY.He may have had dabbled in other types of songs. The execution is the issue.
When I brought up the point about making rappers afraid, I know that's one if the things Canibus gets praised for. I was making mention of Pun, an MC from the same era did that and more.
Canibus had all this hype as an "elite talent", but couldn't deliver an album made the case for him being an elite talent. Can't be elite and then not be a good song writer and ok in other areas. He was elite when he was a featured artist. When the spotlight was solely on him, it revealed his weaknesses.
Need you to expound on this.We do not know if jay was ever nice because he is a biter and uses a ghostwriter.
Plus you not nice at all if you never freestyle frfr no where as well.
All these rappers y'all talk about not on shyt frfr as far as skill.
As they all trash off the top.
Plus their technical skills and rubrick is outdated and bitten too.
Method Man has rapping ability in spades.1. Method Man.
3. Jay Elec (and I like Jay)
4. David Banner
5. Any cac.
I think we (I’m guessing your age) came up in an era where you had to be stupid nice. Flex getting all these dudes to freestyle now, but you used to need a new hot 16 for EVERY radio show. And fukk 16. You had to have 15-20-40 mins of bars ready to go. Dudes needed mixtape freestyles for every DJ. For rap city. For bet awards. For each dvd. Spit spit spitPerfectly said. Posters hear folks say Rev Run is one of their favorite rappers then get belligerent on some "That nikka can't spit no fukn 16! Overrated." No one said he can, he just has a quality about him that people like.
The bolded is how I measure lyricism. The technical stuff is cool every now and again but give me a verse that I can feel ()
No hate. I just don't get it. I've seen brehs on here profess how dope he is and underrated but, personally, I can't listen to him. Outside of 4th Chamber, I have not heard anything with replayability. He could be a dope and insightful lecturer but I can't listen to his music.
I’m gonna get flamed () for this, but GURU fits this description perfectly to me. Never saw him as a top tier rapper.
