Most people under 25 weren't old enough to under stand the most relevant moments in hip hop happen and the depth of what LYRICISM means and the struggle and pain behind it... Most under 25 grew up off what they'r BIG brother or father listened to and now think they can speak on who are legends and who aren't. I was there when ALL these guys debuted and i was old enough t understand the lyrics and was there watching SNoop become a STAR!!!!!! How many really acknowledged that? I'm from the Transformers/Thundercats era not the Pokemon/Digimon era... my understanding of the craft is obviously going to be different. not ALL 25 and under are ignorant, but most people over 25 understand to not even consider Wayne and Eminem in the same sentence based on understanding what it takes to have music with real pain and emotion to what CONTENT really means. Snoop's lyrics were REAL, Wayne is simply ONLY entertainment. Drake is ONLY entertainment. 70% of Eminem's lyrics are REAL s**t he faced implemented through humor and sarcasm.
most people under 25 don't understand this. They don't get it. People who think Gucci would have a career 15 years ago. How many rapper can u say woulda been number one on the charts 15 years ago with they're current catalogs?
We talking when Snoop dogg dropped it was authentic lyrics that were not just propoganda. These days it's all a bunch of kids who grew up listening to the hard s**t and want to copy they're forefather's realism even if they didn't face s**t or have a real story to tell. Why do u think most run out of topics. They start talking Glamour and fame cause they don't have relevant content left or didn't face enough in they're youth. Eminem's relapse has a lot of campy s**t, but it's based on REAL pain off the drug addiction he faced a few years back. He really went through that. My name is had a lot of humor, but also based off a trailer park kid who got famous when he met dre. We get all that from MY NAME IS alone. Drake??? what does he really talk about? What is his point? what is his BIG message? Can u honestly say he raps for EVERYONE?? I know poor people back home in kenya can relate to Eminem as much as Pac on some emotional trama and poverty scale. Just real talk s**t. where as Drake will never be in tuned with people in the REAL ghettos, hoods, trailer parks, country, revolutionists, parenthood, religion, politics, women, violence, ENCOURAGEMENT when feeling down...etc
are a few who actually have managed to hit all these points and stay witty and lyrical at the same time. I encourage folks to go listen to SING FOR THE MOMENT by Eminem and u will see that Drake will NEVER come close to hitting s**t on the head like that. Where u be like DAMN that's soooo true. "White America" I mean CONTENT that provokes thought.
Let the glamour come after we know who u personally are. Drake rapping about s**t that he should be talking about 3 albums in. Eminem has NEVER bragged about collateral and so he automatically wins as an emcee over 95% others cause he understand the people who buy his albums are not as fortunate as him and there is no point reminding them of that, but instead he made LOSE YOURSELF and BEAUTIFUL at the age of 36 when others are bragging about cars, money, women, houses, sales, fashion etc......... You can be shallow and look at the ignorant funny stuff Em drops or Pac etc, but look at the HIGHEST truth not the BIAS truth and in reality does drake really have a "stan", "Way I am", Dear Mama", Lose Yourself", "Keep Your Head Up", "Mockingbird", "Brenda has a baby", "Changes", "Life Goes On", "White man's world" etc...??? These two guys hit more topics in their short careers than anyone else cause they rap for more than just money so the truth comes out.
please go listen to "Sing for the moment" EMINEM with some of his best material. give me 10 songs drake has that he can relate to everyone and bars that will make me go DAMN!!!!! like canibus used to make us do or when Eminem debuted.
You sound like your stuck in the past...there's plenty of material Eminem raps about (past & present) that people can't relate to and definitely don't go "DAMN!!!" over..
...and I already posted a few drake songs.
