Yeah, he's crack.

Young Jeezy- Talk To Me feat. Freddie Gibbs & Eminem

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

I have a feeling Eminem probably has a verse on the track for the album, but it's not included here. And I don't normally like Jeezy, but I like this track.

What?

I like the hook, Jeezy was spitting real shit, and Freddie did his thing. Eminem will probably body both on the album.

what does spitting real shit mean? i just see a standard jeezy verse. is it just the eminem credibility factor? if lupe (another "HES LYRICAL!" guy example) did a song with gucci would you say "i don't normally feel gucci but i like this track"?

Generally, that kind of rap is better in my opinion. Not always, though. It's a matter of personal preference.

I listen to some "ignorant" rap as well.

i don't think it's that, i just think it's a phase rap fan will go through. because really does it matter whether they're relaying their struggle or just flexing? and in that specific example jeezy was spitting much harder on the mixtape freestyle than the album track.

both can be done well, both can be done horribly. but generally it's good if there is a balance. talib kweli wants to fvck a heaux's mouth too, but he doesn't capture that emotion in his music. it's the reason d brown is the best out, because he gets this.
