    why i'm better than you...

    Discussion started by iCEBERG - Jan 14, 2002

    yea well now that your reading my post i was wonderin something.

    who has true lyrical ability? i mean a few come to my mind for one reason or another.

    in whatever aspects for whatever reason. such as...

    eminem: for his wordplay an delivery.

    rockwell: his punchlines
    "whose beefin this indecent heathen tweakin for beatins? ill make you regret what you said so quick youll suck your teeth in"...
    ..."an murder saturday and sunday so all the weak ends"
    "ill twist your throat in so many different sections/ the next time you eat your stomach will have to ask your neck for directions"

    jedi mind tricks: delivery/punchlines

    warbux: same reason.

    detox: delivery, gotta mention them, not well recognized.

    just do me a favor and hit me back with someone underground, someone i havent heard yet. throw me some quotes please. wordplay, delivery, punch lines, just hit me with somethin, im growing tired of listening to all this everyday shit.

    You know what man?? I am sick to my fucking stomach with all of this bullshit underground, weirdo, rap crap garbage! I remember when there was a balance between underground and mainstream hip/hop......flip/flop! I'm not saying that Jedi Mind Tricks, etc........whoever whoever is garbage. I am saying that I think nowadays way too many kids converted over from mainstream to backpackers with oversized headphones and a dictionary under their arm! Went from being a bowl cut wearing, Naughty by Nature loving herb............to an underground flip/flop professor!! You mentioned Eminem and a various list of lyricist's ...............that's cool! I'm not beefing with you by any means........ I love lyricism/wordplay and just rhymes in general.......check the freestyle threads........but I think that there is a lot to be said about delivery also that is greatly overlooked!
    You can twist words and slant rhyme the living fuck out of everything with broken syllables and whatnot..............but I think that there is a fine line/balance between being an English/Ebonics Professor to an actual MC!!! That's a title held by few!!:king:

    couldnt be better put. slug is my favorite MC of all time. that cat is sooooo dope. i love how hes so poetic with his delivery. its just amazing how he rips shit. EVERYTHING he has spit is dope. i dont like that cats just know slug from lucy ford or think that he only rhymes about girls, cuz honestly theyve only listened to lucy. i think all his other shit is better than lucy. i mean overcast! and the dynospectrum are straight gems. not to mention all the fuckin headshots tapes. that cat has fuckin stage presence too. i saw him in december at the 7th street entry and the crowd went fuckin nuts the second he got on the stage. hes just overral a dope mc, he can write, storytell, freestyle, battle, etc.

    weird..
    i only got into hiphop 3 years ago, though i grew out of if rather quickly.
    i listen to dnb now. so i can't really comment on any mc's. i used to listen to cage though.
