I love me some Fab and Dips, but they don't "kill" shit. Ya'll confused. Those are dope songs to ride and chill to, but "killing" it?

And no, it's not really subjective when it comes to this particular topic.
I feel your pain my dude. I don't know how old you are but it seems you might be a little older or at least did the knowledge on good Hip-Hop. But you have to realize...

1. It's HB
2. Most of these kids are younger and to play devil's advocate.. they don't really know what the fuck it even means to "KILL" a beat. Who do they have to look at lyrically? There is very  very few if your not looking in the right places.

A lot of new artists make great songs but lyrically are fucking 5th grade reading level. And that's what majority of kids now a days have to go off. Not all but a large percentage think Joey Badass is best MC who ever lived because he has some skill. I am a Hip Hop Nerd with no hesitation in saying so but on this forum knowing a dope MC is about as useful as an asshole on your elbow. I suggest posting the dope shit and hope some people learn from it. But arguing with these kids about dope MC's is an enormous waste of time my G. #Salute for knowing your shit though. On that note....
My dude...chuuuuch! I knew there would be someone who knew something. 

You're completely right, and I was contemplating even joining in this thread because I knew this would happen. I couldn't resist though, I was trying to drop some gems on these cats. HB is filled with young ignorant cats who don't know any better. And it's not their fault...it's the era they were brought up in. Respect, my dude.

Shut the fuck up & post some music

Let me see those downvotes

goddamn people still using the word "lyrical" in 2014 as if it is has any actual worth in terms of making good music.

Being able to say shit in the most complex, "clever" way possible doesn't mean shit if your charisma is garbage, your cadence is boring, your voice is weak, or your subject matter is played out. Lyrics are one small facet of the many that it takes to be a great rapper, yet for some reason old heads seem to hold it as the key element of rapping.

"Real Hip-Hop"-ass dudes will talk all this shit about how rappers aren't "lyrical" anymore, and yet still refer to Rakim as the "God MC", despite the fact that HIS BARS WERE SIMPLE AS FUCK FOR THE MOST PART AND THATS WHY HE WAS GREAT, SIMPLENESS CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE. 

Also, notice how a lot of these "lyrical" dudes "killing beats yo!" that have been posted so far are white dudes, who often have the hardest time actually developing mic presence, charisma, and interesting subject matter. A lot of them rely on being "lyrical" as a crutch because the "LOOK AT ALL THESE WORDS B!! 4 ELEMENTS YO" style distracts from their weaknesses as rappers. 

TL:DR- being lyrical is one of several things it takes to be a great rapper, and its not even a necessary skill for being a good rapper.

Also: "A lot of new artists make great songs but lyrically are fucking 5th grade reading level."

If they are making great songs, who the fuck cares what grade level they are reading at? You really give a shit whether or not the person creating great art is a college graduate or not? James Brown was functionally illiterate and helped fucking birth hip-hop. 

fuck old heads b. Yall are just the worst.

We are the worst. 

1. The thread was about KILLING IT. That means lyrics or having a murderous flow.

2. I did not post a single white rapper.

3. Rakim is considered a legend because he changed the way people MC at the time and stepped it up quite a bit with content and subject matter. Although he might not hold a place amongst the most lyrical now a days us "OLD HEADS" like to do this thing called respect the architects. While a lot of "YOUNG HEADS" are ADHD and jump from artist to artist and give 2 fucks about the last person they jocked.

4. James Brown was an insanely talented showman as well as had one of the best bands in the history of music and also did have great content to balance out his sometimes incoherent lyrics.

5. I can't believe you took that 5th grade comment as a literal sense of scholastic achievement. It was meant to say
the content was simple. But what do I expect coming from a haircut.

6. I agree only lyrics do not make you a great artist but THAT'S WHAT THIS WHOLE THREAD WAS ABOUT...LYRICS. Not great songs.

Hollar at a scholar...

This thread started off great, then took a really bad turn when that "termanology" bullshit was posted. It was all down hill after that.
