    this man is hip-hop...You got the talent, lyricist Joey BadA$$ on one side the spectrum then Cheif Keef over produced commercialized bs on the other side..I prefer lyricism and talent and I think more and more people are seeing that. Hip Hop is coming back---kendrick lamar whole Black Hippy Crew, Joey BadA$$ and Pro Era, even A$ap Mob, some of there stuff is commercial garbage but still got that harlem underground sound.

    cold as fuck. This is true talent. AS I always said, it wasnt as if talent on earth just dissapeared midway through the 2000s. The problem was, labels wouldnt sign them, or they would sign them then hold them back. This guy has the talent, and if he gets production(which no one seems to have nowadays), he will make great music for years to come. I'm talkin just blaze, Kanye, Dre, premier, etc. No more of this hitboy, young chop, blah bla blah

      I don't think the producers you named are bad, they just don't get the great lyricists of today on their beats. They are more hit and miss than the producers like Kanye or Premier but for the most part I think its the rapper on the beats
