I give credit for them making it in the industry and doing what they had to do, because they must be doing something right. That doesn't mean there music isn't whack, in my opinion.
I hate when people just say "mainstream rap sucks, this is real hip hop". Because there are mainstream artists who are great emcee's and make good music. They say the mainstream isn't lyrical or doesn't have good content, but they've obviously never gave a listen or paid to attention what some are saying.
Kendrick, Cole, Logic, Krit, Yelawolf, Currensy, Macklemore, all have content and can be very lyrical in their music. And like I said about Mac and Cudi, they may not be that lyrical or great rappers, but they make some music that I can listen to and enjoy, and they make some decent songs.
