Kendrick just proved to me that a lot of you n*ggaz are EASILY impressed. Im from the an ERA where n*ggaz SPIT for REAL.....dude through some names in and everyone went ape sh*t.
I know dude makes quality material, but I just cant get past his voice and his sub par lyrical ability............ Somebody school me, put up a link to a song where he BLACKZ OUT....I dont hate, I just want dope music....Maybe my opinion would change. I use to hate Young Jeezy, then I heard the Trap OR Die & Cant Band The Snowman mixtapes, and Ive been hooked since.
What are modern examples of artists who do not have subpar lyrical ability?
You gotta understand that time moves forward. It's possible that Kendrick hasn't yet reached heights set by the goats, but who else can you point us to right now? The dude is literally carrying the torch.
I can't take it seriously when people say he overrated and can't point to who they got in their corner.
