Nothing here contradicts what I said. Do you care about a song having a message or not? Sounds like you do. The message factors into the quality of the song.

I have to disagree 1/5. Lyrics are huge.

I'm tired of ****** shooting up shit and selling drugs and bragging. It's way past old. But when you grew up seeing drug addicts, gangbanging, and the people you love are really getting killed in this life it means more to you that just entertainment.
Gonna rep you in twenty-four hours.

do you really not understand the difference between a message and lyrics? most of the greatest rap verses ever have no meaningful message at all and that's how it has always been. it's only in the last 10 years or so where people like the ones on this forum have decided that any ignorant or purposeless rap is automatically shit.

i really don't understand why people who have no interest in rap are in threads discussing rap. andgar couldn't name 5 rap songs that came out this year, why is he in here debating? i haven't seen any breaking bad which is why i don't post in the threads about breaking bad. we need to apply that same logic to all topics.

Frankly to me, this is the epitome of what I call the 'fast food generation'

Our music is packaged to sell. Look at all genres of music. This isnt just rap.


Look at the movies Hollywood has been throwing out there. You think they push remakes on us like they do because we love them? No....they're cash grabs. They bank of simplicity.


Our arts suffer all around the board.



This artist ( I remember him when he first came out ) is a joke. His music is a joke. There is no "deeper" shit going on that we cant wrap our heads around.



And for the record....is some kid here, REALLY gonna tell me, at 31 years of age, that I dont "understand" wtf the message is? Look little kiddies....You havent earned ENOUGH play time on this planet to tell a grown ass person the lyrics are "going over his head"



Its garbage. Music is WEAK right now.





The irony is, most of them will argue record sales....which happens to be the very reason these execs purposely simplify this shit to push it out there by the bundles.

the logic is just so bad in that post. gucci has been an independent artist pretty much his whole career. when gucci has forced shit for a label he has never really sold. his albums have never sold well. he had maybe three legit successful singles. his fanbase and critical praise has come from the music he is making on his own and giving out for free (mixtapes). if gucci is a joke then every ignorant street rapper ever is a joke. biggie is a joke, dr. dre is a joke, 50 is a joke. you can't selectively use these arguments.

Amazes me that so many teenagers and barely 20s think they are the "real" rap fans.

Ive been listening to rap since sneaking to play Rebel Without a Pause on my grandmas stereo when she was at church in the 80s. I had De La soul, The DOC, and Main Source tapes right through Coolio, No Limit, Bad Boy, and Cash Money. Right now on my MP3 player you might get Scarface and Ice Cubes Hand of the dead Body right before Shorty Lo or Trouble and Alley Boy next to Pimp C before David Banner and Organized Konfusion.

I listen to the Youngbloodz, Killer Mike, Eyedea, and some old E40....

I listen to everything.

Gucci cant rap. And nobody will remember he ever existed long term. Nothing he ever did is worth hearing 3 times.

Now...have I been in a club and noticed that "Kick a door'" caused a pandemic?

Yes. But drunk people dont have taste.

post wasn't even directed at you it was really only for angar. it's clear you just don't like gucci which is fine but I don't understand why you're still disputing whether or not he can rap. he can clearly rap very well and creatively when he wants to. and his style of rapping is very original. he has close to a hundred classic songs that will never get old. no point in continuing this
