LOL maybe they are compared to the ones in my OP.
Can you explain what you disagree with? That is just my impression. I don't think it's right because rappers like Pharoahe Monch and GZA are obviously gifted writers, but I think it's obvious that there's a bias in American culture toward people who use ethnic or urban dialects.

this topic is really stupid.
In american culture in general?!

The most important thing in life is balance, not being relentlessly morbid.
This could be interesting if it wasn't for the racism. Heres some rapper that make highly intelligent music and don't hide it on wack beats and 30 superfluous syllables a bar:
How are they hiding anything? If anything a '30 superfluous syllables a bar' is showing just how intelligent the rapper is.
Qwel and Eminem are two of the most intelligent. Can keep an ill rhyme scheme without having to sacrifice any content.
Props to Prime8, Qwel is the illest man for real. Got like 20 albums out and all full of all these intellectual shit.
He who's living in vain, though it's given us blang
And paints life in image, gimmicks in this splintering frame
Tainted gift, that fallen angel clipped, crippled and lame
Limpin for sympathy, bitch-like, but his riddle's his name
His fiddle dribbles out the brittlest twang, the vain cynical
Derail the faith train to enflame your fame, literal
Brang pain, vain to maintain the slaves brains
And claims of brave ways, but can't stay safe and hidden though
It's either beefin or vegans or white Jesus in the middle road
Posed for sold simpletons
Frozen in a glimpse of hope
Focus dimmed and interscoped
Floatin winter's splintered boat
Notice hiss in intervals
Lotus twigs and integrals
Known as bitch to flitty hoes
Golden grip and fixing votes
Sold us six in Christmas "ho's"
Broken scripts and videos
Jokin jist skinny bows
Locin shitty city folk
Hopin if the kiddies quote
They'll see him as the pinnacle
What inaccurate generalizations? I'm not trying to perpetuate the bias, I'm just pointing it out. I even gave examples of black rappers who I believe are very talented and intelligent.

But brothers would it kill us to change?
And chain 'em up in prison when it filled 'em with hate, cause ain't a difference
It's pound for pound the literal weigh
Stay down for now
It's crowns are minutes away
And hey, to each his image, with satan lickin his fangs
But sang bandstand freedom in it's business of slaves
Who paid Jay-Z and Mantan to give it away?
Shit'll take some new brand pants to get us to stay
To the pinnacle, infinite, made of mineral clay
Today we're diamond, nickled, crippled out of critical rate
A little wisdom with some rhythm to pray
A place within em, livin grace as original as the middle of gray
His cynic cake and Antoinette with a tyrannical taste
How we wise if even famine obeys?
Now we're swimming with the salmon to calamity's lake
With granite feet, shaped from vanity and grammy speech "thanks"
The late great planet E
The hand of greed squeezed, fannin these flames
Nine to five will be the ant theme, but man, it'd be great
Time's a lie, Yah's alive, why's it man that we praise?
Anchor hands and canvas feet
Like, damn if we say
Standing deep beneath the, deep between the span of these banks
It might take a Barbie chant to get the answer dj'ed
lmao i forgot about this video. some people shouldnt be allowed to have cameras.

You gotta be sad when you TRY to take credit for what somebody else wrote?
You post and throw lyrics around as if you penned these, it means nothing to me. It's as if all you do is fucking READ lyrics all day rather than listening to a fucking song.......
Inspektah Meth Tical dosen't wait around for albums to drop, he goes on azlyrics.com and keeps hitting refresh until somebody types the lyrics up. then he can convince himself that he is somewhat alike to his favourite rappers because he 'gets' what there saying.
