Bad lyrics?
Bad production?
Asshole personality? cough KANYE cough
Annoying delivery?

For me it’s gotta be bad production. I can bop my head along to any song and like it, even if the lyrics are about stupid shit. But if a dude is an amazing lyricist, and can’t mix beats for his life, I can’t get into him.

What about you guys?

Cosign on production.

Additionally annoying adlibs and bad song intros turn me off.

I’ll say bad production as well. Also, bad flow/delivery. I don’t care how good your lyrics are if you can’t flow to save your life or if you sound like you’re mumbling the words.

Thesaurus-raping miracle lyrical shit. ESPECIALLY when the dude is using huge words and complicated overlapping metaphors to express what is basically some simple shit.

-Using autotune (Future)
-Being a racist prick (MGK)
-Saying dumb shit (Lil Wayne)
-Ashy niggas (Chief Keef)
-Blatant condescendence, overly poppy beats (Lupe these days)
-The best thing of her music videos not being her rapping, naw mean? (Nicki Minaj)

IM TALKING ABOUT HER ASS! (If the clever joke went over your head)

Cosign on lyrical miracle shit. Lack of charisma, basically, if I find you boring, nothing else matters.

just stupid lyrics that seem to have no comedic effect on a decent to below average beat

  • The subject matter or topic, specifically the generic overly mellow weed songs, all these “aspiring” rappers all sound the fucking same, it’s stupidly disgusting.

  • Studio gangsters, especially that take themselves too serious, like motherfucker sit yo ass down,

  • Pussy whipped bitch made niggas, nothing against drake but a good chunk of his shit makes me cringe like a motherfucker.

  • Bad production, like really bad production, those half assed beats with minimal as fuck drum patterns, overly misused atmospheric synthesizers. These hideous wanna-be pseudo fake ass not real cloud rap beats are just atrocious it’s probably the biggest thing i hate atfirst listens.

  • Bad Production 2, the exact opposite as the other one, in this case it’s the shitastic trap music attempts that they literally went to go as obnoxious as possible, more directly at the overproduced shitstains that tarnishes HipHop and in fact builds disgustingly negative stereotypes.

  • Wasted production, when motherfucker finally get superb delectable perfect tasty beats the kind of beat that you can make an incredible cake with solely the beat, but wait here comes some god awful ass rapper that bust through the door and takes a Lincoln Log of a shit RIGHT on top of the cake with mediocre to out dreadful lyricism. Fuck what i said earlier, THIS is the worst possible thing to do in HipHop

  • Daddy Bought My Success Rappers, shitty shit shit rappers who ownly gained any form of success because of pure nepotism, specifically through family members.

Having a shitty personality. Their music can be nice but as soon as I watch an interview of them or see them tweet things that just shows how much of a shitty person they are I just cant fuck with the music anymore. Sometimes the opposite will happen where an artist who I hate on will do an interview and it changes my whole opinion on them.

Bad production is another thing.

Too much cussing

Don’t have problem with artists using a strong vocabulary. Just keep it realistic though. Don’t be using college esque words, that you probably will forget what it means in a week.

It just starts to feel awkward if rappers drop a fuck or shit every 3rd word.
