I shit on Lil B numerous times for numerous reasons, his music is just not enjoyable overall. However, one of the songs ace23 put on his top songs list by the guy really resonated with me.

It was some very human shit, had a lot of genuine expression in it, as honest as a recording as I've heard lately.....unlike a lot of the drivel y'all try to claim and dissect.

Uh...there was not one Lil B song on my top songs list...

Maybe you're thinking of Retchy P - Special Jim?

Dude has specifically he said he's trying to bring back G-Unit/Dipset's sound. Also, he said some ignorant shit in his Hot 97 interview about any rapper who's not from the streets being a weirdo.

No he said the content of their music made them a weirdo rapper. Not that they weren't from the street. Kendrick Lamar is from Compton. But he doesn't rap street shit. What Troy Ave said was stupid but he didnt exactly say you're not from the street you're a weirdo rapper.

I like Troy Ave NY mixtape. Dope.

Just because he's from Compton doesn't mean he's from the streets. If you're not out there putting in work, you're not "from the streets" in my opinion.

Either way, we agree that he's a dumbass. Whatever.

Explain what you mean by fresh. And lol @ actually good. Maybe I need to listen to more Troy Ave, but everything I've heard from him is subpar. Denzel Curry's worst song is better than anything I've heard from him.

He doesn't flow like Lord Infamous on every track. I agree most of his old shit, he did a lot and he's cited him as a major influence. Have you actually listened to N64? Probably not.

Pretty obvious Kendrick is from the streets by his raps.

Yeah we agree on Troy comments being stupid. Doubt he will blow up even tho I like him.

I don't remember Kendrick ever saying anything about selling drugs or doing any kind of street shit.

Lil B- Giving Up

It has a clean beat... his exasperated raps in sound and subjects serves as an identifiable personal reality for many others. I really respect this song coming from an artist I never cared for.

He's affiliated. He's been around street stuff all his life. From family to peers. He raps about gang banging, drug using, selling. Everything that happens in the street, he finds creative ways to express what he sees, experienced.

Lol that's all I needed to hear.

Try not to let fans of a certain artist sway your opinion on him.

Shit, I'm a big fan of Earl Sweatshirt, and most of his fans are middle-class, white teenagers.

The first 90% of the songs you posted that I took time to listen to simply had no rhythm, there was little agreement with the lyrical structure and the production it was over. Simply not enjoyable for that reason.

A couple others I heard I acknowledged to myself that they came from the heart but were so unpolished, so amateur sounding that I couldn't overlook that as even crappy poetry and poor execution of real expression can be ineffective for those reasons.
