Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Yep deffo liked the 20 yrs ago quality music..not saying they aren't great artists nowdays but come on Nicky fucking Minaj n°1 ?? fuck that !
I don't have a problem with Nicki being #1.....I have a problem with her being #1 off that album. It sucks and is pretty much unlistenable.
She's a more talented rapper than many of the rappers on both the '93 and 2012 lists....but that's not translating into good music for her. She needs a producer to take control of her music IMO. Like what Dre did for early Snoop and early Eminem. She needs someone to get her good beats, guide the direction of the songs/music, and to harness her weirdness/uniqueness which COULD be a strength(see Kendrick, old Busta Rhymes, etc.), but can also be a huge weakness when she basically goes off the deep end with it on some of those songs. She needs a quality control person to keep her music in check and tell her what's wack.
