So because wayne doesnt spit deep lyrics he all of a sudden isnt a good rapper? He is an entertainer, and he is damn sure entertaining. Soulja boy is the same way. Yes, I hate his music, I'm sure you do too and most people here, but a lot of people danced to that song, a lot of people loved that song. Bill O'reilly being a dick has nothing to do with anything. There in itself proves that you have no clue what you are talking about.
There is not a formula for greatness. It comes in many different shapes and sizes.
bill oreilly does relate. i'm just trying to make the point that just because someone HAS a HUGE fanbase, doesn't mean they aren't absolutely terrible. so your wrong.
you keep changing your argument. you started with pure talent and skill, and now you've moved on to, "ok he may be not be deep that talented bla bla bal, but he's entertaining". entertainment or fan base doesn't have to do much with talent or skill as an MC.
wayne says shit people WANT to hear, talking about himself, how cool he is, how much money and clothes he has, and how many "bitches he's nutted in".
ok, thats cool if you like it, im not gonna blame you for liking music you like, but if your talking pure MC skills and writing ability talking about ISSUES or telling a STORY, the trophy goes to guys like common, nas, pac, mos def, andre 3stacks.
everyone else can listen to lil wayne making his little cute metaphors n shit over and over. The one wayne track i like is on his mixtape song Show me what you like remix. and it aint even THAT good.
Wayne Verse: Doing a buck in the
latest drop i got stopped
by a lady cop she got me
thinkin i could date a cop
cause her uniform pants are to tight
she read me my rights
she put me in the car she cut off all the
lights she say i have the right to
remain silent now i got her holler
soundin like a siren talkin bout...
3stacks verse: Softly as if I played piano in the dark
Found a way to channel my anger not to embark
The world's a stage and everybody's got to play their part
God works in mysterious ways so when he starts
the job of speakin through us we be so sincere with this here
No drugs or alcohol so I can get the signal clear as day
Put my glock away I got a stronger weapon
that never runs out of ammunition so I'm ready for war okay
3000 may not sell as much, but he's DEFINATELY WAYYYYY BETTER.
