    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.
    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    you not gon sit here and tell me that everybody thinks like you
    a nigga that thinks gucci is killing a track actually thinks gucci is killing the track
    he not gon tell you, "nah i know gucci wack, but the beat? the beat is sick!"
    people just like different shit

    Now this song right here is what a great artist does. The whole concept of this song is amazing. Most people get the impression that he's rapping about a female named Suzie who is featured on the song. "Suzie" (typical white girl name) is really cocaine, and the female voice is Ester Dean.
