    Define this complicated as in it takes time to understand or complicated as in the way the words are pieced together

    This is too vague of a poll. You can have simple lyrics if the storytelling is good or the artist is crafting a creative song.

    I think words are more powerful when the speaker is using simple language.

    There's nothing that's so complicated that you can't explain it to a 5th grader.

    A 5th grader should be able to listen to a rapper and jam to his music. When he gets older maybe he'll find hidden messages.

    BIG and Pac are considered the two best to ever do it, and their rhymes are simple as hell. Their subject matter tho was so complex you can still catch hidden gems in their lyrics. Complexity kills the purpose of music... but I don't mind killing 5 minutes to decipher a verse from a Killah Priest or a Canibus.

    i'd rather an artist say a lot using a few words. complex lyrics can be dope when there's a purpose behind it, but i can't stand when a 🤬 uses a whole bunch big words on a boring ass beat just to talk about a whole bunch of nothing.

    This might sound stupid, but complex simple lyrics are my favourite type of lyrics, that make sense??? haha

    For example, Masta Ace, Vinine Paz and 2Pac are the best at this, its so simple (but still complex and intelligent) you think why cant I think of that...

    Yeah man, thats what I was getting, well said...

    Like you say, pure complex lyrics are dope at times and like you say when theres a purpose... Papoose is an example over/pointless complex lyrics...

    The smartest people can put the most complicated things in the simplest terms

    And

    The dumbest people use the biggest words to make them look smart.

    plus in my experience when pulling a women its best to keep your 🤬 short and simple.

    A quick one, two then you walk and then they will come to you.

    Less is more

    Jay Z, Nas, Slaughterhouse, Canibus, Andre 3000, Lupe Fiasco, Ghostface, Inspectah Deck, Chino XL, Killer Mike, Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, Common, Cormega, J Cole, Rakim, Big Pun, Kool G Rap, Notorious B.I.G, Big L, Big Boi, Method Man, AZ, KRS-One, Brand Nubian etc

    Complex rappers as far as Lyrics and i don't enjoy any of their music or any other rappers that are highly complex as far as lyrics. I don't enjoy their music at all it bores me to death

    Simple and effective lyrics, straight to the point, straight from the heart>>>>>>>>>
