Too many Detroit rappers sound the same to me,but some stick out with talent more than others.
To me the underground captures the city's musical history more while the street niggas capture the street life but they lack originality and the lyrical ability to be relatable outside the city
I like DBs Idk where the buzz went.Son sighned to Nas is fire and there's a few others who are dope
For some reason the underground goes natl before the commercial type music
A lot of the artists sound the same because of lack of above average production. When Helluva prod. for DBCO, they got a hit. Other than that they kinda recycle the same template.
And in this day and age, lyrical ability is extremely undervalued. Most people pay attention to production, flow, a voice and hook. It's a good number that a pretty original. And when they stay in their own personal sound are dope as hell.
