But really, does anyone honestly think that Soulja Boy is any position to be talking ****? He claims that his new album will have more interesting lyrical content, but it's the same album that the abysmal "Pretty Boy Swag" is on. I don't even get it.
The flow is so nuts, the track is getting tea bagged.
Hey man, if he wants to step up his game he'll get no complaints from me.
I also think the cover of XXL this month two parts hilarious, one part terrifying:
We need a hip-hop thread or something.
Yeah, honestly if he wants to step up his game I'm all for hearing his attempts, but if Pretty Boy Swag is a step in the "right" lyrical direction in his mind then I don't think we're going to see much.
Also, nolan, I edited the first post. Feel free to edit the title to make it a hip hop general thread. I miss our hip hop generals!
soulja boiiiiiiii is the biggest joke in hip-hop as far as i'm concerned. if he wants to "step up his game" and prove that he's not a joke, i'm all for it. do i htink it'll happen? no way. and in no way whatsoever do i believe he'll EVER be of lupe, kanye, jay, etc caliber.
that's just not even fair.
the reason i don't htink he'll step up his game isn't because his music has thus far been more detrimental to hip hop than african child was to black people, but more because he's suggesting that lupe songs don't make sense. lupe is my favorite rapper for a reason, lyrically, he blows essentially every rapper out of the water.
I'm sorry.. but from this day onward I can't take either of these artists seriously. ._.
(not that I really did before)
"I have a habit of falling in love with souls who have yet to be at peace with their bodies, their minds, their weaknesses. I try to build them, to find the parts of them that are missing in me.
I end up with holes in my chest."
This is some really awesome stuff. Glad to see Big Boi still has it. Is there any word on Andre 3000's solo projects and/or a legit Outkast project in the near future? I love Big Boi and Andre separately, but they really shine as a unit.
