but one who can do all of those topics in every album or all in one song... has the potential of being a respected Legend... but it also depends on lyrics and delivery!

because concepts get f**king boring after a while.....

you can tell half you people aren't rappers.....

sometimes you don't want want to sit and think about 'okay, how can i put this story together' or 'alright, how can i convey this emotion'......sometimes you just want to be like 'f**k it, i'm better than you'

rap is braggadocious, it's about being better than the next guy, and if you're better than the next guy, why not come out and brag about it.......

you might not see Kobe out there bragging about how nice he is on the court, but i have seen him go out and go at people who were talking s**t about him........that's the REAL way to compare the two.......rappers want to show they're better rappers than other rappers, so they rap about being better rappers......basketball players want to show they're better basketball players than other basketball players, so they go out and play basketball better......

It's just a standard of the form, like R&B songs about s3x. I do often wish rappers would get more creative though.

Because u wanna be recognized as the best so every now and then a rapper has to brag about his skills, hip hop is a verbal sport, some rap just to sell records, other rap to be the best
real talk...what good rapper doesn't brag about how good they rap?
