The real reason people like "Wack" rappers , The answer is simpler than you think

  • The T/S is on point..depending on the artist (and the noose of the label they're signed to) they feel (or forced) to create music that'll adapt to the club, cars and females because they're the money makers. That's why you hear that shit 24/7 all over the radio.

    Plus like everyone on here agrees, people have different tastes and gonna listen to what they want.

    Gucci had a 80's LL Cool J flow?????????

    I refuse to believe Gucci ever sounded like anything CLOSE to Rock The Bells

    or just maybe people have there preference. i think some people feel obligated to call rappers dope just because everyone else is.

    if you don't like it call like it is. Ain't nothing wrong with liking gucci mane,waka, or any of these other not so lyrical rappers.

    I thought they liked them becuz to them they don't think they're wack

  • I think the simpler answer is because they have dope beats...

    An emotional connection is actually what they fail to create, Lil B is the shocking exception so dont bring him up
  • I think one of the reasons people like wack rappers is because it allows them to have more confidence about becoming a rapper themselves. Imagine if every emcee was skilled on some WuTang, Biggie, Nas shit. None of these dudes would even try to become a rapper because they would know they ain't fucking with the pros.

    But in today's game you have Drakes, J.Coles aka average dudes with no thought-provoking shit, so the average fan sees that shit and thinks, well shit if they can make it so can I ... and for the most part it's true.

    It used to be only the talented bruthas got signed and recognized. It was the dudes who could flow like it was nothing, the guys who could write the old testament, the bruthas who could rock a mic and get the whole crowd hype.

    Now it's just a pathway that rebellious and/or lazy dudes see as an alternative to school. They think, "Instead of school, I'm going to be a rapper," and because wack rappers get shine, they actually do have a valid chance of it happening.

    Yea, I have said this since Mike Jones was real big.

    It's Production.... Can anybody name a Wack Rapper with "Wack' or "Boring" beats that has received ANY type of light?

    Plus ppl dont like to think or pay attention. If your listening to music while your driving are u gonna be focused on what that last metaphor meant or making sure aint no cops in the area?

    Culture change is all it is.

    Again a revisionist assessment. Illmatic for example had Q-tip,Pete Rock,Dj Premiere,Large Professor some of the most sought

    after producers of that time. Lets go west coast for a minute Doggystyle had Dr. Dre on production nuff said.

    Since the beginning of hip hop there has always been less technical rappers , ordinary everyday person rappers, rappers that

    never finished high school etc. Too Short, Eazy E , E-40 , Dougie Fresh, Curtis Blow, Biz Markie, etc are less techinical rappers,

    Native Tongues were regular cats for the most part. Eminem,Nas and Phife Dog never finished high school that I know of.

    Dumb ass post by the OP. You proved nothing but you came to give us the real reason. Get over yourself people.
  • BackInWhiteBackInWhite Posts: 19,374
    the reason people like wack rappers is the same reason people like "good" rappers
    this shit ain't rocket science
    people have differing opinions
    it's the same reason a nigga like me would never wear a pair of fusions when there are niggas that swear by them shits
    or the same reason i can watch family guy all day and night but my girl hates that shit

    the "it's production" theory is bullshit
    i personally know people who think gucci kills songs
    i know niggas who think 2 chainz is clever
    why can't people just like what they like without having feelings for the rapper or being intrigued by the drum?
    this is some elitist shit at it's finest

    So ur telling me if u take those SAME people removed the beat and let Gucci spit acapella they gonna say he ripped it? Dont front like Beats dont pay 80-90% on the reason why Gucci is Enjoyable.

    They don't. You think beats played a big part in Gucci's come up when every song was produced by Zaytoven and all Zaytoven beats sound just alike?

    I never been a Fan of Zaytoven or Lex Luger but that Get u amp "Fun" music plays a part. Put Gucci on Canibus beats and lets see how much ppl say he "rip" shit.

    Sidenote: Gucci did kill that Mario song "Girls are like Buses Miss one next 15 one Coming"

    First of all. Canibus is wack as fuck. The most unrealistic rapper ever. Nigga don't be talking about shit.

    "Space domes. Pirates in the galactic skull of laser beams. Lyrical universal paper cuts."

    The fuck?

    Never been a Fan think he's boring as hell and very unrealistic or as i call it "Who gives a Shit" but i understand why ppl think he's nice because of his "Technical Ability" but he basically lacks everything else u would need to be a Complete artist
