post #151 of 1294
Talib is proof that being a technically sound rapper doesn't make you interesting. Fuck, he's vanilla. And I say that as someone who owns his first two albums. Elsewhere, Odd Future is so refreshing in a time when nonchalance is so en vogue among rappers: I hope an .mp3 of the performance surfaces. The studio version, like a lot of the Odd Future content, is a bit lethargic from a production aspect.

Being at the first OFWGKTA show in NYC is something that I'm sure I'll be telling my kids about when I'm older. They've really got everything going for them. They just look like kids who don't give a fuck having tons of fun all the time.

I like Gibbs, but he doesn't seem in anyway commercialy viable. I liken him to a midwestern AZ. You have to be into really rappity street shit. That's a tiny audience. The general public hates rappity emcees, and people who are into rappity emcees tend to frown upon the really hood shit.

He should have come out circa 1995.

Yeah, he's not Drake. So what? Just because he isn't very commercially viable doesn't mean he's not a ridiculously good rapper.

I hope you're being ironic, because Gibbs' flow is way way way better than Kweli's. Kweli has one of the most awkward fast-rap flows in the game.

I think I catch your drift re:rappity but I dunno - I generally hate that shit, including sacred cows like tribe. Gibbs just strikes me as passionate, serious and no-nonense.

His flow is kind of even-keel for a real banger/ club hit but you give him a strong hook a la "National Anthem" and I think he can be pretty viable.

You're right. Gibbs is dope. Str8 Killa No Filla is my go-to listening for long runs. I was just pointing out that he has the smallest potential audience of any "name" rapper. No radio/club/chick/hipster/backpacker appeal.

BTW, Gary, Indiana is the worst place I've ever been in my life...that includes Camden, NJ and Bosnia in the 90's.

Sorry you have such terrible taste. I think that designation should go to Crooked I. Really none of them are good song makers in general.

Saw him in concert about a month back. He puts on a pretty good show despite being so blunted I don't think his eyes opened for more than a second the entire time.

+100 Snooze rap at it's finest. Talib makes me want to hit the skip button immediately.

Crooked's great "” Joell's just a budget Big L. But you're right, none of them are particularly good songwriters. All the Slaughterhouse songs are verses-by-each-rapper-then-call-it-a-wrap kind of things. And maybe my taste is bad, but I do get paid for my opinions on rap
