Just because his lyrics are terrible and his hooks are garbage doesn't mean he's creative. You're confusing subject matter with talent. Chief keef is terrible too... but I f*cks with some of his tracks... Hes at least catchy.

nah i actually understand music. creative artists who constantly create new shit have talent. perpetual swagger jackers like soulja, french, and big sean are severely lacking. (french is dope when he isn't imitating max or keef or someone else, but he does it often)

What has Lil b created other than a million terrible tracks? Just because he displays some honesty in his lyrics doesn't make him talented. Other artist do that often... And they can actually rap, write a song, etc.

Lil b didn't invent any of those. Except for maybe based rapping, I have no Idea what that even is. The other 2 have been done to death.

Lil Wayne had songs called Kobe Bryant and bill gates back in 09, when Lil b was only know for being in the pack.

I'm posting this from another thread since I didn't see this one:

I'm looking for rap suggestions;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ih1GM8Qf6t8

Straight up, here's the video. I haven't listened to rap in a while (it's been years) as I've moved on to different pastures (note; german techno and the like).

I used to listen to guys like Lupe, Talib Kweli, Deltron 3030, other 'underground' artists like that (though, to be fair, Lupe isn't 'underground').

In addition, the main selling point for me besides the ambiance for me are the lyrics. I hate lyrics that are all about '****ing bitches,' 'drug deal this drug deal that.' Give me something I can relate to, something cool, and different.

swag rap kind of existed, but lil b made it popular and made it what it is today. the term itself "swag" became overused to death from 2010-2011 because of our god. "i'm different" "purple swag" "gucci gucci" "all gold everything" don't exist without lil b. the two wayne songs u listed are not celebrity name chants, try again. and yea they've both been done to death since lil b created them so u are correct there.

here is based rapping done by other rappers, never became that popular but was clearly completely new and didn't exist before him.

So saying a celebrity's name over and over again (out of tune) is creative? Got u.

Ocho cinco's Hook was a punchline at least.... Lil b's hooks don't make sense and they're not catchy at all.
