    I agree fam. Pac & DMX wasnt the most lyrical niggas in the game but niggas could relate to them on an emotional level.

    Funny tho, seems like that element of emotion is dead now thanks to these niggas who are characters playin somebody they aint (i.e. Rick Ross).

    Music is something you feel, thats why I think niggas like DMX, Eazy E, 50 Cent or Ice Cube were so successful with the masses. You could find a million more rappers that were better than them technically but couldn't sell a record or hold a crowd's attention. Charisma man..... I swear that shit is missing today :(

    Whoa! Did you really just say Pac and DMX wasn't lyrical? Really? Pac is one of the most lyrical dudes ever, and X ain't too far behind.

    Y'all getting lyrical mixed up with the syllable rap shit where dudes say shit like lyrical, spiritual, miracle etc.

    you dumb fuck
    charisma is just about the ONLY thing niggas have today
    that's the main reason niggas like 2 Chainz are even remotely relevant

    FOH, none of the new dudes have charisma. They all look and act like a bunch of outcast mofos who have a mission to make shit that will never be accepted, the norm.

    Wateva X was lyrical..X and pac told stories in rhyme..Most punk ass rappers can't do it..Today's mainstream artist just spews random punchlines about nothing

    Exactly, people get the word lyrics confused with wordplay acrobatics. The song content is more random now because thats how the listeners thought process has been conditioned to think.

    Rappers have ALWAYS played characters they aren't...hell go listen to Rapper's Delight...you think they had all that shit they talked about? Hell the 3rd verse is ghost written...

    LMAO at fans of Nas, Jay-Z and 80's hip hop saying "people are followers."

    Yup, definitely bucking a trend. It's not like those people don't have millions of fans.

    But here we were as young adults —news junkies, hip-hop heads, smart-asses and autodidacts who grew up in the hood — suddenly smack dab in the middle class, wielding much of the same privilege we’d always criticized. Because of our backgrounds, we were keenly skeptical of the politics of respectability, and surrounded by and socializing with self-congratulating Negroes who patted each other on the back because they were about something and self-congratulating white folks who patted themselves on the back because they had black friends. (But damn it if we didn’t love the sushi!)

    So where did we fit in?

    We agreed that labels were silly and reductive. So, of course, we created one.

    t/s is way off , you basically just gave the reason why people love music from their teens years and always see it as better then anything before or out now . if an artist music doesn't give you a emotional response why listen? if you looking for some of knowledge/education pick up a book

    Exactly, I've never understood that shit.

    I listen to "wack" music b/c it's entertaining. Nothing more, nothing less.
