for me theres rap for every season of my feelings and emotions,sometimes i need some shit to laugh at or other times i need some shit that is just plain clever and complex,sometimes i need to cry or sometimes i need some shit to vent to. it just depends on how im feeling at the time.I dont like to hold every rap artist to the same standards.thats what music is,its all personal preference.i can get bored listening to slaughterhouse and rakim as easily as i can get bored listening to slim thug.i switch it up all the time.but when an artist has the ability to take you to a place u can hear,see and touch from your own past or current expieriences then thats what i consider good music.thats the main reason Pac is my favorite of all time,ppl keep trying to bag on his lack of complex rhyme schemes and punchlines but that isnt always a recipe for a great artist.sometimes its the stuff that will literally give you chills when you think a motherfucker made a song specifically for you.
KirbyTheAlmighty said:I mean, It's awesome that he's authentic with what he says/spits, and he does get a little credit for that.
But he needs to work on his flow. It's the same throughout the album, and It's hard to sit down and listen to the whole thing.
I'm not a big fan of Nas or Tupac. Ice Cube's alright, and Jay-Z's flow's not always the same.
this album was like 2/10
if this is the best hip hop album you heard all year it must be the only one you've heard all year.
