Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Second ASAP single just leaked. Weak as hell.
2 Chainz? Drake? Really?
This is the shit I was worried about. Weak ass mainstream beats with weakass guests verses from weak ass rappers like 2 Chainz.
Fuck this shit.
It's a change from what we heard from LiveLoveA$AP, but he's evolving like every good/great artist. Rocky and Lamar both had dope verses. Drake was tolerable and 2 Chainz as a hook man is fine by me. The hook is more or less used to make the song stick in your head and make it memorable. Doesn't really involve any lyrical ability, flow, wordplay, etc.
The beat was average, nothing crazy. Probably only better than 2-3, IF that, from LiveLoveA$AP. The great thing about this though is having two of the hottest rappers in the game, with Drake arguably being the hottest, shining some light on two great, up and coming artists who deserve a lot more attention like Rocky and Lamar. Will only do great things for them. This was dropped just in time for Lamar's album.
Edit - after reading your edit...
Why would you want a new album sounding anything like an old mixtape? Just listen to LiveLoveA$AP.
