Why is it a "dumbfuck" intro?


Starting with generalizations about how rap is or how it used to be is the best way to make me immediately disregard your review. It's sad too, because it's better than most rap reviews on this site once you get past the intro and actually read it.

Most hip-hop these days forces consumerist tendencies and shiny production down peoples throats, often forgetting the key ingredient: quality.


This is just blatantly false. Obviously ratings aren't a perfect reflection of tastes or knowledge about different genres but judging from your page you are not that well-versed in rap. If this is true, it's much better to avoid broad statements like the one above.

How about those days when the production was low-key, and the listener was actually required to sit down and take a good hard listen to a hip-hop album?


These days never existed. You're attempting to reminisce on times that are purely a construction of the collective rap psyche on the internet. Rap used to be made the way it was because that's what the artists happened to do, either through desire or limitation. Who's to say what they might have done if they had access to different materials? There was no era where the genre was pure, the whole notion is just juvenile. The introductory paragraphs stain the review with amateurism.

Like I said, the review was good otherwise, though I would suggest paring it down in general, it's a bit too verbose for it's own good.

the best kind of swag is the kind you get from a finely tailored suit and edgy dress socks.
