Hmmmm... huge disclaimer: I'm not into rap like when I was younger, just a person passing by. I like Andre3000's style and how diverse he is. But that's an after thought. I like things with jazz influence. I could listen to that rap forever. I don't know if it's even rap or more hip hop or something else. I guess really looking at it, it's more samples than anything over amazing music by amazing producers. But some have rap. https://youtu.be/Td6yMlQbicA
I don't have a favorite rapper, just favorite beats.
Who I don't think is best :Eminem, Kanye... just don't their direction now/feel like hype was a littttllleee too much. Someone I am liking now, little Wayne. He's been cheeky in songs like Truffle Butter but also poetic and real like in Mad by Solange.
Logic def has to be one of the best. I like Chance too. But if I had to single out lyrics I'd choose Eminem his lyrics mean something. But my top ones are Kanye, Logic, Kendrick, and maybe Young thug (tho little wayne will take him down with the carter v) as of now. Eminem is better then all of them and I really hope he drops a new album.
Preview of his lyrics!! Ah nah, there ain't no truth to what they say on the mic There's a difference between doing it and doing it right Bars pack no punch, reason why they lose in a fight Cheap watered down drinks is kinda what today's music is like Not us, man we do sh*t forreal boy We do this sh*t like we finna be killed boy No trends, no fads Crew full of b-boys Bandwagon hip heads F*ck how you feel boy
