this may sound a little ignorant but when i listen to music i want something to bump or chill to i aint trying to have to listen to it 2 or three times to understand what the mf'er is trying to say...i would go read a book or something if i wanted to have to think about it....this is most of the time.....occasionally i can dig something you have to think about but moreso than none i dont wanna feel like i have to get in the zone to understand a dude

Hence why multisyllables appeal to these types, but for a thinker type Lupe, etc are just nicer. Way nicer.

did a n*gga just say multis are the easiest form of rap

:jay:

plus even if it is the easiest, it doesn't take away from how good it sounds
Yea we get it, you don't want to think hard.

miss me with that man

lupe is one of my favorite rappers. but i appreciate the artistry of the sound of complex multis
you say it's easy, bu it's not quite as easy as you think...especially not the level of complexity that Em hit on Relapse, for instance...
Thats the thing, multis are are sizzle no steak, they are pleasing melodically to the ears, but there is no complexity to them compared to other poetic devices. Sorry there just isn't.

i gotta disagree man

I respect where you're coming from but I think it takes work to put them together and make a coherent song at the same time...

what poetic devices do you prefer? Or what do you look for in lyrics?

I'm actually really interested. To me there's almost two types of rap that i like...the complex multis, and the slick style with double meanings that n*ggas like Jay and Lupe are great at.
I perfer the slick style with the double meanings, its a whole different world. I like to be amazed when I listen to rap, and discovering a hidden meaning after years of listening to the same song is something only a select few can appreciate I guess.

i'm a huge fan of that as well. guess I just like the multi style more than you do.

to me that's more of the musical side of the song...slick lyrics are cool but they don't really add to the song MUSICALLY, you know? Multis and flow mix with the beat to produce an even better musical experience

just my opinion though
We are not dicussing the sonic nature of the song, this ask who was the better lyricist, as in the complex nature of the rhymes.

i thought we had moved on to just discussing it in general

plus i think you can argue that the ability to make good multis is part of lyricism...because multis are lyrics after all
Multi syllables are a major part of it,even if you are rapping about going to the shop to get a loaf of bread if you use big complexed words with a multi syllable rhyme scheme its still a lyrical verse.Content and lyricism are 2 different kettles of piss
