Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Nicki is talented, but she chooses to do extra shit that's unnecessary.
I swear if Nicki just made an album spitting like she did before she became famous and went mainstream, it would be a good album. But she chooses not to and instead goes pop so she can please her little teenage girl fans. And let's be honest, that's pretty much the only people that's buying her albums.
But I'm not even saying I want her to make some straight-forward, pure hip hop album.....I mean, that would be cool and she could do it, but I know there's like zero chance of it happening so i won't bother wishing for it.
But even in the pop lane that she's in.....she could do that so much better. Like she could make a really good pop-rap album. But this new one sure ain't it. The first one was much better, but she could do a lot better than that album too, in my opinion.
Do her fans really like this new album or are they just lapping it up because it's her? I recognize why the first album was so big with that crowd, but I'm not seeing it with the new one.
