Imo Common is a very exciting rapper

dude has so much charisma and lyricism that makes him really stick out. Like, ish like LW4C, Be, and Resurrection are all “classics” for their lyricism and production. I’ve listened to the three recently and really can only think of one or two songs that don’t stand out.

Finding Forever is beautiful too.

And this is where rap argument becomes meaningless, as you can just swap some words around to make an equally persuasive-sounding argument about your artist of choice

tbh there are four rappers i think of as boring.

wale
Chance the rapper
j cole
and now common

i don’t get it tbh. the only people i hear getting genuine love here are “lyrical” artists (ie nas who people think has another classic album besides illmatic, and mf doom, who overuses multisyllabics and excessive adjectives to say nonsense). i appreciate that genre of rap when done right (kendrick lamar), but do people around here just get bored by hype music? no backpacking, no multiple level entendres, no deep introspection; just straight hype, 100% wilding out.

that should be the core of rap, honestly. just having fun.
