    This is a thread for Hip Hop/Rap/R&B fans. To begin this thread what is your favorite song. Who's your favorite singer?

    I'm not sure who's my favorite singer but my favorite song is Got Money by Lil Wayne ft T-Pain. I know the whole song by heart.

    I see, I don't think your genre is too popular here. That or the fans just have not noticed the thread yet.

    I mean I also personally can't pick any I like except I like big butts lol! Oh and an unholy crapload of J-pop and K-pop. Probably best that I can't understand it.

    I think they're laughing at you liking a Lil Wayne song.
    I'm laughing at you liking Eazy E.

    Seriously though, no offense, but it seems like you don't know much about rap.
    The only rap I really listen to anymore is Tech N9ne. I feel like I've already heard everything else.

    I see. Yeah, I'm not a big hip-hop, rap, R&B person so I wouldn't know about Lil' Wayne or Soulja Boy...

    I might consider Tech N9ne now that you've mentioned it.

    You are laughing at him liking Eazy-E when you like Tech N9ne?
    I could never take Tech N9ne seriously after I heard the song "I'm a Playa".
    Eazy-E on the other hand is a legend.

    Not that big of a rap fan but I do like some, like Dr. Dre's The Chronic. Looking forward to his next album even though it probably wont be out until a couple decades from now.


    By the way please don't include Soulja Boy in any discussion about rap. He's not a rapper; he's just had one too many and somebody made the mistake of handing him a microphone.

    Here is one of my favorites by him:
    [video=youtube;SYOIQ_mKI4I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYOIQ_mKI4I"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYOIQ_mKI4I[/video]

    I suggest you read the lyrics as he goes along:
    "Happy Ending"

    [Tech N9ne]
    I didnt wanna ****ing do this song, for real
    But I wouldnt be real if I didnt

    [Tech]
    I be sittin by myself and thinkin, mamma what have I become
    All I wanted was a family, but when I look I be the only one
    Losing everything but money, everybody left and I dont even get to see my young
    Only happiness I get is in the studio or when I get to do another run
    On the road, doin shows, get the woes, when it slows
    gettin cold, getting old, but the flows, gettin sold
    I've been doin this a minute but I think I wanna end it cause I'm on a higher level when I go
    But the music I be doin it, be losin, make it hard for me to grow
    All I wanted is a family portrait, see my babys on a ranch with horses
    But I was ****ing devil bitches in corsets. I was livin really good but I torched it
    I'm sorry ms jackson, I'm speakin for real and I never meant to make your daughter cry
    But I guess I'm a failure with women and I'm lost and I feel like I ought to die
    Feel like I'm rotting away, my life is just off in the grey
    How much does it cost I will pay, to lay, and be off in a coffin today
    I mean off in ashes, this life ain't after a classes, If I get blasted
    This is Suicide Letters all over again, I thought that I passed it
    But I guess that I didnt, cause this one is written and there is no mending
    When I'm broke I'm a joke, when I croke I just hope I wont be descending
    But this ain't a joke, I want you to know that Tech ninna is never pretending
    Alone in my bed, a gun to my head, asking WHERE IS MY HAPPY ENDING? Ya

    [Chorus]
    Tell me how it ends?

    What about me? Where is my happy ending?
    What about me? Is this a life worth living?
    You know how it begins, but how does it end for me?
    Will I ever win, or does he have it in for me?
    Will this stop before I stop breathing?
    Is their lighty, in this dark I'm seein?

    [Tech]
    Chea, I put my life in this music, nina is inside out
    I set my heart out for people, they know what the inside bout
    Will they keep feelin ninna forever, this I doubt
    Can never cry for help, if you listenin this my SHOUT
    I'm searching for the passage way to happiness
    But i'm wordly So I have to lay in nastiness
    Yes, this is Strange year, worldwide fames near, but the games queer
    Sometime I feel like I'm rudolph, the reindeer
    But instead of a red nose, I stay in my red clothes
    And the music they said blows, is on top and the cred grows
    Can you ressurect a mother ****er that feel like he pose as a dead soul
    Deteriorate to an inferior state almost equal to bread mold
    Now as my head goes, wish I could shed those
    Because all the time the ninna was shorted, what I bled froze
    So now that I'm cold blooded, and hella sick is what the med shows
    The tread slows, and dont even think you reviving a dead rose. Chea

    [Chorus]

    [Tech]
    I'm on the verge of insanity, but I'm competant
    I'm breakin so I pick this one to vent
    The reason I look away when you talk to me my brain is producin evilness
    I'm drownin in 151 and rumble ments. Thats how I feel
    I sit in the mirror with this gun and practice how to kill
    But I know damn well that the people like me really wanna know how to chill
    This life is about a check, about a number about a bill
    Think about all the love I lost cause my quest is about a mill
    I feel like your stupid, dont talk to me I'm crackin up
    And I dont mean laughter I'm full of bitterness and its backing up
    And I live with angles, but lately demons been shakin up
    Tug of war with my spirit, you see the blood I'm hacking up?
    I love my kids and my fans inside I sob harder
    Cause you pay the price for my life and its right like Bob Barker
    And I wont pretend its ok I'm no facade starter
    So I guess my only happy ending is in a massage parlor
    Chea

    [Chorus]

    His raps are usually really complex with a lot of subtleties.

    Edit:
    Listen to that song and read those lyrics.
    I respect Eazy E for some of what he did, but he was no rapper. His mother goose flow cannot hold a candle to Tech N9ne.

    That's how all old school rap was. Just because he doesn't rap fast like Tech does in that song, doesn't mean he doesn't have flow.
    The flow of his lyrics goes very well with his songs.

    The song you posted wasn't bad, but like I said before I can't take Tech N9ne serious after hearing "I'm a Playa". And I don't think his style is all that complex, he just reads it line at a time, pausing after each the word he's rhyming.

    You don't understand. Tech only occasionally raps fast. The complexity is there in the multi-syllabic and internal rhyme, and the constant change in devilery.
    I completely understand if Tech's stuff isn't for you, though. I won't try to convert you.

    I do, however, feel like saying that Eazy just raps like everyone used to is a bad excuse for his bad rapping. If everyone just rapped like everyone else, where is the progression? What would make anyone stand out?
    Eazy is a legend for being one of the first to be so blunt with NWA. He didn't even write the verses he is known for. Like I said, he was no rapper.

    Well yeah, he raps fast then slow; to me that doesn't define good flow. Good flow is when you can make a good transition between lines. A bit complex at parts, but he doesn't ever really make his lines flow together.

    You were saying that Eazy had mother goose like flow, but I think you just don't like old school rap. His flow is fine if you ask me, he ties his lines together pretty well at points. He just pronounces his words more clearly like most old school rappers. But I don't really know too much about Eazy, so whatever.

    My location? Do you mean that people in other countries think that rap music ain't good? In that case why the hell did they even post in this thread if they are going to be posting negative stuff and dizzing on what people like and who they listen too. The Boondocks is a good animation that may fit. I'm Hispanic too read my signature if you know Spanish.

    I didn't like that song by whatever his name was. I didn't know what he said. I had to read the lyrics in order to understand what he said.

    T.I. is by far better than him.
