Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Okay, see, here's the thing with Kanye. I give him his props when he deserves it. As a producer? He's ILL and probably the best to enter the game since the classics from the late 80s/early 90s and he's probably worthy of a top 10 spot at this point. As a rapper? It's a whole different story. His lyrics are horrible, his voice is PAINFUL (the reason I barely listen to him) and his overuse of profanity is almost as forced and cringeworthy as Drake. Therefore, I find no use in him rapping to a microphone. Now does he make good music? I'm pretty sure his albums (except 808) have some great songs that many including myself enjoy, but that's for every reason OTHER than Kanye's rapping. (for me anyways)
For the Dre comparisons... Dre is not really ratable lyrically as he doesn't write them but when it comes to delivering? He's awesome! He rides a beat flawlessly and has one of the best voices I've heard. That alone puts him above Kanye (who's only redeeming feature is his production) for me. Comprendé?
