    LOL this dude is seriously furious that people don't hate Will Smith as much as he does. It's not like anybody ever even brings him into convos as a great mc. Most of the post Fresh Prince of Bel-Air stuff has been wack, so? Nobody puts him on a level high enough to care about that. He made some catchy joints early on, repped hip-hop culture hard while breaking into Hollywood and paving the way for rappers as actors, and was just a cool dude that did him. How can he NOT get a lifetime pass?

    we might as well act like slavery and racism never existed.

    this gen thinks those did not and do not exist, from revision as well.

    Yep.



    I'm not even going to take the general sentiment of The Coli as an indication of whether Will Smith is corny and wack, because this is the same board on which I've seen cats celebrating Hammer as a respectable legend and ja fukking rule as a dope, underrated, grimy rapper. It lends credence to the notion of the crackbaby generation.

    However, your last line is kind of my point. People are ready to drop Nas down 10 pegs or die defending his honor when someone suggests he used a ghostwriter, but Will Smith uses ghostwriters openly and makes lame ass pop songs that make Ice Ice Baby seem edgy but "no one cares." Which sort of suggests that he's so fukking wack on the mic that no one cares. It's cool he's a Hollywood icon, I congratulate the homie. But that has nothing to do with him as an M.C. at all.

    Also, he share both his girls with Gina. :leon:

    What is it with the whole unimaginative meme of internet fury. Like, you nikkas be sitting in front of the monitor, reading posts with the immediate instinct of "oh shyt, this dude furious, b!" Nah, I make threads blending a little bit of fact with a little bit of insult and a little bit of humor. So kiss my fukking ass and suck Will's dikk.


    Except they do, and I've already explained 3 times that it's the reason I made the thread. a bunch of posters recently were riding hard on Will Smith being a better rapper than Eminem. I don't even own an Eminem album, don't fukk with the little homie like that, but Will smith couldn't outrap Diamond D let alone Eminem. nikka is trash.

    Why are you "furious" that I'm pointing that out?

    will smith is a homo rapper, his wife fukks women and is in love with a dead rapper, his daughter is an ugly treasure troll who needs the mic slapped the fukk outta he hands, he's a c00n for making bagger vance, and his music is pure garbage.

    Breh the only reason nikkas said will> Eminem is because em dissed will for no reason. And I'm sorry but black folks gonna ride with will over Eminem. I really don't think anyone is saying technically will is better than em.

    I feel like the OP made this thread just to shyt on will cause you don't like him.

    I feel like everyone in this thread knows what will is and we explained it numerous times. A rapper who had some decent songs some corny ones and blew up on acting tip, we respect his grind and how he did it.

    That's it.

    he dropped ish that i could relate to like 'parents just dont understand', 'girls aint nothin but trouble' as a youngin. that aint saying he had the best music. call him corny or whatever but he's also real.

    if there's any rapper out there that you should look up to as a role model, then its the fresh prince. managed to be successful while being himself. i think the general hip hop population would agree that him and jazzy jeff opened doors for hip hop

    This is the beginning of me ignoring your dumbass. You're always quick to call someone who doesn't believe what you believe ignorant. nikka, you are NOT the gatekeeper/historian/king-koopa of rap.

    You really just sound salty as fukk right now.

    I think what the OP is trying to get everyone to acknowledge is that society made someone most of us enjoyed as an actor and role model into a dope rapper because he was a rapper first.
    The guy had a few crossover hits and couple hip hop gems, but ultimately no one else could do what he did musically and receive the accolades he has a rapper without becoming the A-List movie star after.
    People are unable to seperate his accomplishments, instead choosing to prop up his rap career with his other achievements. And I'm not listening to Will Smith records front to back, but i'll never pretend he wasn't a big part of my childhood and entertained me with both music, movies and tv.

    Will Smith is a legit pioneer even if you think he's shyt. His popularity helped pave the way for Hip Hop and Rap to be accepted in the mainstream and won (with jazzy jeff) the first rap grammy.
