the beat has nothing to do with his corny lyrics
n*gga please... The lyrics are far from corny... You n*ggas just making up random statements about the lyrics cuz you don't like the production or how he says it so you can't get into the track... Thus his lyrics go over your head... Like the dumbass who said the first 4-6 lines made him turn the song off... Which made absolutely no sense seeing how that was some of the most cleverly written lines i heard from anybody in a minute...
It only took me a few more reads before ppl starting calling it more Wont Back Down crap... Hence a rock type song... I remember the hate for the track for the same reasons...Em said it best himself "Kids flipped when they knew i was produced by Dre"
Em lyrics haven't changed much... His punchlines have gotten more and more indiscreet to the point where his punchlines and metaphors could be 3 or 4 bars apart... sh*t goes right over you simple minded n*ggas heads... You go back and you pull the end of the punchline because it's one bar...
Like the dumbass who pulled out "I'm not a rapper, I'm an adapter"... You need the previous 3 bars to put that line into context otherwise standalone it will sound corny... The entire wont back down track was a song full of punchlines and metaphors in which he said in the song that n*ggas like you wouldn't get it and that no other rapper is seeing him metaphorically...You call it corny because you don't understand it... I am sure eventually this will turn into his shouting or delivery was bad and i wasn't talking about his lyrics sh*t... It's like clockwork
