They're in the battle rap state of mind which doesn't traslate well to radio hits.

For the very reason freeway got clowned in the cassidy battle, that put a beat on sh*t. In the era dmx hov eminem and those dudes battled it was over beats

Having freestyle skills or battling skills does not translate to making good records always. A lot of battle rappers with great talent couldn't put together a great song if their lives depended on it.

Because they can't make songs. Nobody wants to listen to an album that is in a form of a mixtape. Why do you think Hunger For More was trash?

They think to much and put to much into lyrics. They try to make ever bar count which is how they have to think in battles. When it comes to mainstream music, they would have to dumb it down. A battle rapper would have to fully commit to trying to make mainstream music to make the change.

If they try to do both one side would suffer which would probably be the mainstream records because they make their money from battle rap, so they can't slack on that. Most of them are good being themselves, doing what they like to do while making a decent amount of money, so they do just that. They definitely don't lack creativity, dude that said that is bugging. Have you ever watched and listened to some of the sh*t they come up with?

No, it's trash. One of the worst album I've ever heard and I was hyped for that album. Dude is my favorite rapper but he is NOT a good artist.

Eminem is the best example of turning from straight battle rapper to MC that can write great songs

if anything battle rappers are toooooo creative...the more sophisticated you get the further you are from commercial music.

Commercial music to me just means its music that caters to the most casual of casual listeners who couldn't tell you the difference between a snare and kick drum lol
