Producers are under appreciated
You mean the same trap drums as every other song?
@robee, *reggaeton wakes up from its slumber* do I sense a challenge?
@robee, i hate those hi-hats. Everything nowadays is just “click & drag” producing.
@csortof , just slightly change the melody and rap about 1 of 4 subjects and you got yourself a radio hit
@robee, exactly, they just need to rap about shooting people, taking/selling drugs, treating women like objects, and how they’re so much better than everyone because they’re rich
@csortof , were at peak soundcloud saturation
@csortof , unfortunately, rappers have been rapping about that for years. And part of the reason of why I switched from rap to rock in my teens. I got sick of it. Though nowadays I’ve been listening to Eminem and Joyner Lucas
It's just that beat fetishism has run rampant in the community. They'll take a sick af beat and just lay /anything/ over it and act like it's good or original. You'll be getting down to a bomb beat and then hear the rapper doing a slow version of "I'm a Little Teapot" or some other nursery rhyme.
I'd do it myself, but I'm a better comedian than Bo.
And millions of dollars earned
That reminds me of the song Rigamortis by Kendrick Lamar. I love the beat but the rapping to it is absolute garbage
@Porkyofthepine, Rigamortis? His rapping is absolutely top tier on that track, are you high?? The beat is phenomenal but king Kendrick is known as a GOAT for his lyricism and he is a monster on that song.
@Tyler643, to me it just sound like he's talking over a beat with no rhythm to it. It might be lyrical genius but to me it just clashes with the beat and it bothers me.
I guess I subconsciously compare it to Lil Wayne's Let the Beat Build which starts with off-beat lyrics but they progressively match with the beat.
I don't know. I don't listen to much rap that's been released in the past 10 years so maybe there's something there that I just don't get.
@Tyler643, my favorite will always be Untitled 02
@Porkyofthepine, Kendrick also walks the line between poetry and rap in his songs. Some songs he focuses solely on delivery, while others he may focus more on the message and words used, he's still on beat, but isn't putting emphasis on the syllables on beat, listen to "Sing About Me, I'm Dying Of Thirst" great example of it.
@Guy Fawkes, i like mambo number 5
@Porkyofthepine, I'm not trying to pick a fight or shame you for your opinion or anything. Like with anything, to each their own. I'm just not familiar with the whole "I dont listen to it I dont know anything about it but heres my opinion" approach?
@Ghoaxst, I mean I do listen to it. Just not very much. My opinion comes from the general expectation with every song that each part will sync up in some way. I get that there are entire genres dedicated to being off-sync and abstract but, as far as I know, rap isn't one of them.
You're not trying to pick a fight and neither am I. I'm just gonna accept that I'm apparently weird for not liking the song.
@Porkyofthepine, it's all cool I like the introspective thought you put into what you like about music theres nothing wrong with not liking a song and i appreciate your explanation it was thorough and i now understand your perspective
@Porkyofthepine, you're garbage... how dare you say that about the king
@spelcheck , I’m confused. Is he a king or a goat? Or a goat king??
@SmartFeller, hes the King, not necessarily the GOAT. I dont think hes done enough to solidify his spot as the greatest, but I say hes on top right now
