bet's pretty bad agreed



kendrick's cypher was pretty good tho, but only because his presentation was so on point. his lyrics are nothing special for the most part, but his delivery is what made people go nutso i think

Yeah agreed I have just lost my patience with rap that is all delivery oriented being the ONLY stuff that is popular. No new rappers have anything new to say, they are just biting shit and trying to pretend they are on another level than old school rappers just cus they rhyme more and rap faster. Wick-wick-wack

The song Rigamortis is the perfect example

That's unfair since that's the point of rigamortis. He literally is showing us how long he can go without taking a breath.

But he states it as if that is all Kendrick is doing. Songs like Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst disprove that.

those songs dont get the attention, though. his post clearly wasnt centred around kendrick, it was centred around the type of rap that gets popular nowadays. so those songs dont apply to what he was saying.

On spotify, the top 3 songs are Bitch don't kill my vibe, ADHD, and MADD city. I think two of those songs are covering serious themes.

This is clearly centered around Kendrick.

all of those songs have typical mainstream sounds. what kendrick is saying hardly matters at that point. swimming pools got popular as fuck. do you think its because of the message of the song, or the way the song sounds aurally?

you can't judge someone's worth off of a fucking cypher. they are essentially battle raps so they are used to boast.

I can agree that the songs are probably popular off of sound mostly, and yeah the mainstream rap scene is shit, but I'm just defending Kendrick Lamar.

implying a good flow, voice and production aren't more important than lyrics

Where's the feeling gone?

Will I remember the songs...?

The show must go on



It just means so much more to so much more

People, when you rapping and you know what for







Kendrick is probably the best new rapper so he's not a good example but he's still an example. It's interscope records... Bit h don't kill my vibe is a serious theme now? Lmfao

I said two of the three covered serious themes. I figured it was obvious that bitch don't kill my vibe was the outcast.

This is exactly the reason why Kendrick is really great. The fact that he can make a song with lots of

mainstream appeal while lyrically the message he is portraying actually has a decent amount of meaning

to it. That's not to say all of his songs are deep; their not. But that's a good thing imo. I still

like to hear him just have fun with a mic.

the sad thing is most people i've met seem to think that swimming pools is just a party song
