Arrow Opinions..

Why is it that old hip hop fans pay so much attention to lyrics and sometimes don't pay that much attention to style & flow and why is that new hip hop fans pay so much attention to style & flow and not enough attention to lyrics?

Nowadays unique style & flow will get you alot further than some raw rhymes, in my opinion anyways.

Because if it was based on style and flow, 50 Cent and Twista would be considered top dogs in the game. When in reality, 50's already recycling his rhymes after dropping only 2 albums, and Twista sold the **** out. Style and flow gets you on 106th and park, having dope lyrics and something to say, gets my $12.99.

Lol.
But that's the thing it matters who you want to appeal to as a rapper.
There aren't many critical listeners out there and alot of people will just listen to something if it sounds good and has a nice beat.
Don't get me wrong. I like raw lyrics better than flow, but I also like listening to someone with average lyrics and great flow.

It's like you can't please everybody, but you must try to please the majority...well if you want sales anyway.

flow and charisma makes the money if on a good beat with a hook

then if you wanna make a good track you can afford to and it will sell because of your fan base

i change depending on my mood but often lyrics are important to me as i listen more than a lot of people over here.

lots of people just say "oh yeah tupacs the best he speaks the truth" when they cannot really relate to him anyway

i also need to agree with the artist...talib kweli is skilled but i dislike the racist fool

True, you can't please everyone, but like the examples I used earlier, 50 and Twista, they've got charisma, but they use it to for the purpose of moving units, not making good music. Yes, you can move units and make good music at the same time, but most of the ones with average lyrics, but a good flow and hot beats, only care about that next paycheck, and NOT the culture, or the art of the music. Best believe, whatever's popular with 15 year old girls, that's what 99% of mainstream "hip hop" artists are going to reproduce and recycel. Ras Kass said it well : "cuz tomorrow if the next trend was Hip Hop ****, you'd by finding a lot of these rap n***** in drag, believe that".That's my take on it.

I disagree when you said that 50 Cent had good flow...personally the only good thing about his style/flow is his hooks which are catchy but when you get down to it PRETTY DAMN LAME..example: "I'm a Bonafide Hustla ***** get outta line I'll cut ya ME I'm bout my paper it's **** You if you play games of mine I will catch you from behind wit my 9 I'm a Bonafide Hustler"...nothing skillful about that and his voice pisses the hell outta me BUT I will give him some slack, he did get shot in the mouth and all.
