I just can't get with any flow that may exist in that song and I think it's an awful take on a love song (at least that's what I think it is). And while I've heard very little of what this fool has to offer because I just can't stand his songs, it just seems that he has absolutely no capacity to be deep beyond the thinking of your standard high school dropout and that's what makes me hate him so much, not just that his terrible music typically makes my ears burn.
I think this video gives the perfect example of how a band can be deep and use the rhythm in their style of music to add to that and make you actually feel in a song. Of course, if you can't get behind the rhythm in this song as I couldn't in yours (possibly due to different musical tastes) at least have a look at the lyrics to see what I mean.
And unfortunately, even if I was presented with an example of Lil' Wayne being deep in any way, I don't know if I could ever get past the fact that about half of all his lyrics and rhymes just seem so incredibly juvenile no matter how hard he tries (and that's being generous IMO).

I don't usually take metal or rock songs too seriously because of the restrictions of the genre, most of the times the songs are serious, if you were to make a song about a non-serious topic it would have to be obvious or else you wouldn't have a strong following, what I'm saying is that a lot of these deep songs metal and rock bands have are from deep lyrics only, not from the heart unlike Hip-Hop, there are exceptions however, for example Tool, the singer is always passionate about his songs' meanings.
Alot of Lil Wayne's lyrics are very strange and in a way twisted, people don't know what he's talking about, they don't understand him, I'm not saying you don't like him because you can't understand him, I'm just saying that some of his seemingly immature or simpe lyrics are actually more thought out, don't get me wrong, I know Wayne's far from the best rapper in any time period, but I think there are many rappers who are more deserving of the hate he gets.

I'd certainly agree that most of the best rappers' lyrics come from experience, but unfortunately the best are not typically the most popular. I don't typically educate myself about the personal lives of my bands though so I can't exactly empathize there. What I look for is typically a song's ability to inspire emotional responses (that's at least what I notice what I tend to like; I don't listen to songs expecting them to make me 'feel' or something as that would be weird) or something that can really make me get with the rhythm. The ability to blend every instrument in a band together in such a way with the lyrics as to make you get completely into the song is what I think makes certain metal songs so great.
And your standard loser high schooler who decides they're going to be a photographer typically thinks all of their bullshit photos of their lunches on Instagram are super deep and meaningful. I'll use this analogy to describe Lil' Wayne's attempts at deep lyrics.

I'm not going to do that. Obviously Lil Wayne acts well on camera because he's used to it. Hopsin's new to publicity. That doesn't change the quality of either of their music, which should count more than anything. Unless there's ghost writers involved, but that's another story.
#29 - onceman (06/15/2013) [-]
Well you don't know what Nardwar does, he presents the artists he interviews with a gift or an that item has something to do with the artist in question's life (usually from when they were younger or coming up) and it tends to be a deep thing that not a lot of people know about, most artists including Wayne are able to provide knowledge and culture about the item and its history, however Hopsin didn't seem to know anything he was just confused, he didn't even know what a fucking vinyl was, it has nothing to do with being used to acting for the camera, not at all, plus he interviews a lot of new artists that apparantely knew more than Hopsin.
I know you're afraid he's not all he makes himself out to be, but sometimes it's good to open your eyes.
And yeah, his music is good, he complains about other rappers very well, but that's a really easy road to take if you wanna get famout, by hating on the popular.
#30 - yojo (06/15/2013) [-]
He is what he makes out to be. In his songs he makes it quite obvious that he's intellectually challenged. He doesn't hide that at all. But you're right, Hopsin got fame at first by insulting bad rappers because it's hard to get recognized unless you do something noticeable. And now that people know him, he stopped and he regrets it. Many great rappers have to appeal to the masses to stay in the business. For example: J cole's "Workout". Also I know Lil Wayne has potential. If he tried he could make some meaningful shit. But he doesn't go for that, he goes for music that people can play loudly in the car, at the club, etc. because that's what earns money for him.
Lil Wayne is probably smarter than Hopsin, but that does not affect the quality of his music, even though it should. And once again, that's what I mainly care about. He doesn't even try to pick a topic to rap about. It's always all over the place.
#31 - onceman (06/15/2013) [-]
I actually didn't know that about Hopsin, thank you. Yeah Wayne showed his potential , and has gotten deep, but he doesn't have the same motivation he did before, it's shame, he has the capability to rap about deep shit to millions, but he doesn't. If he got meaningful more often he would be more respected.
#33 - yojo (06/15/2013) [-]
He's already made it to the top, and he's not someone who's in it to send a message, so there's no point of changing his style. As long as he sticks to his good beats and his witty metaphors, he'll get what he wants.
Hopsin said that only recently, right after releasing ill mind 5. Apparently he promised to stop attacking individuals and Ruthless Records. I'll just have to wait until Knock Madness to see if he lives up to that.

No, it's preference, you grow up and the way you grow up decides the things you like - including the people, which is all choice, not "how one was born"
The only reason people don't like it when people call sexuality is a choice is because they instantly assume if it's a choice the person believing it's a choice is going to tell them to change their mind, instead of just making a statement.
