Is the lyrical element of Hip-Hop dead?

Do you think lyrics still matter, or is it just a catchy beat and flow??

I've been following Church Chizzle for a while, dude goes hard.


Any other up and comers being lyrical besides Church, Kendrick, and J Cole?

    lol, my nigga, what beats?
    what production?
    that shit been dead... niggas wanna sound like go bots now.
    it's hilarious that these are some of the weakest basslines ever yet niggas wanna be heard...
    if i rapped like most these niggas do, i'd have the hardest speaker box fucking bass ever.
    but these new niggas is so damn dumb that they think they really sound hot.
    shit was better when everything was bout the boom.
    if i were an FBI Agent tasked with monitoring a forum, I'd post random pictures and watch the reactions of the people.

    they were there. just not known like they are today. yeah i rap says hes been on to kendrick since 06.


    I think there will always be rappers that focus on lyrics more than a catchy hook or hot beat. will they become as big as drake, eminem, lil wayne? probably not, but then again, you never know.

    If it was 2004 to 09, then I would agree. With KRIT, Kendrick, and Cole making noise in 2012, lyricism is back in full swing.

    Ab-Soul put me onto his music.
    How many dudes have you really shot
    you rely on muscle memory no wonder you forgot
    how stupid can you be,I'm world class,who you teaching ass
    you got broad shoulders prom queen, carry that
    your top five lists can not be taken seriously (naw)
    when the reaper takes them all seriously (yeah)
    you should have died as one of your moms cramps
    fuck around get your skull turned into boot camp (ha)
    I am not the one who you want to have bothered
    your mom water shouldn't have broke if Moses was your father (hungh)
    I just stepped out the nexus to answer who next is
    what perplexes me is you all know I'm sicker,you disagree
    you iller?, make your move Nomad (damn)
    I got better reflexes than Body Builders
    demolition man, is he stallone,snipes,or the reem
    all you self-centered clowns can't stop the dream (stupid)

    The essence of my pubescence was stick to the lessons
    Keep the substance in the artwork solid,no need for stressin
    Shit, rap smoke and mirrors
    I aint dyin' off the second hand from the reflection of another man
    Not tryin' to hear who you think more clever, it whatever
    Dead at the same time, they toe-to-toe, neck-and-neck forever
    Dexterity is dexter, my pressure is impressing
    Buffalo Bill, but the victims doing the cross-dressing
    You nobodies get piled in the bathtub
    why you think it's called the rest room
    The brand is new, just call it a flesh-wound
    Word is born, who needs a flesh womb
    If I diss you, better just take that
    I coin phrases,Harvey Dent aint got the balls to flip that
    Sergeons need image awards if they save face
    Cave your chest in until Osama and Bruce Wayne could be roommates
    You gassed already, that's what happens when your hate unconditional
    Your favorite rappers is weak, but you virgins use to putting pussy on a pedestal

    Some new cats have lyrics, but for the most part it's all about bitches, weed, money, coke, syrup, and partying. If 90% of your lyrics are about any of the above you're wack imo.

  • shit is all about relevance, ask some young niggas if these new niggas are lyrical and watch them tell yes and back it up, and who are we really to say nah just because the shit these niggas is saying might not be relevant to us and not lyrical, but too other niggas its lyrical...fuk it all i'm sayin is niggas is always gonna be lyrical to somebody out there lol
  • It's true though, a few years ago we could only get what Labels gave us, now independent artists give us what we want, and labels follow.

    All this fuckin whining about lyrics.. Like damn you really that conservative about music that you only like shit that's lyrical? "Lyrical" is not synonymous to "good rap", being lyrical in rap is just one part of the genre.. In the 80's we had all kinds of classic rap songs but we all know rappers were on some elementary shit as far as lyrics go..

    I think people on the net are just way too focused on lyrics all the time.. And besides, what defines dope lyrics? I think a song like Paris Morton Music or Dreams Money Can Buy by Drake as as lyrical as it could get.. What makes those songs less lyrical than any other?

    Every era of rap has its own field of focus.. 90's was clearly more lyrically focused than it is today, but then again most beats today are much better than in the 90's. So are the hooks and the overall song structures.. Lemme find out if rappers start becoming super lyrical we'll have a billion fans online complaining about something else SMH...

    I just want rappers to sound like they put some effort into they music that is all.

    something like lyrical prowess can't die if it's alive in at least one mc..

    something like death is but an illusion because energy can't be destroyed..

    something like an opinion can't be argued unless you're the last human being on earth..

    so basically, this conversation is tantamount to what happens in this gif^
