>>106>I don't know why, but I've never been able to get into rap.
I understand. It's not for everyone, I just think some people dismiss without realizing the talent involved in some of it. Let's face it, there's a lot of fucking trash out there too. I appreciate word play, complex rhyme schemes, bending words into rhyme, multisyllabic and internal rhymes. It helps when the rapper has a large vocabulary and really knows you to use it while flowing over a beat. Most of this modern rap is pretty garbage save for a few like Kendrick Lamar.
In the 'Legacy' song I posted above, at around 4:05 when he raps>You're going to die a ball licker, I've been diabolical>With this dialogue since '99 Rawkus
I thought was particularly clever to rhyme 'die a ball licker' with 'diabolical' and 'dialogue'
he's purposely bending the beginning of these words/phrases to all have the same sound
also, 'die a ball licker' is actually a double entendre meant to follow the other football metaphors before it
One of my all time favorite rap songs to get hype to>
