    this has gotta be the dumbest thread ever,have you heard of gza? Canibus? I ould go on and on and it wouldn't even matter because such talent exists in both ethnicities,this is about the idividual and their exposure to intellectual perks as opposed to the ignorant..do you just make these threads for a kick or you're just that slow..im really wondering at this point

    I think what he may be getting at is that many of the good white rappers out there will use different vocabulary than African-American rappers (can't necessarily speak for black rappers in other parts of the world, as I am only familiar with the grime scene in the UK which isn't especially known for its lyricism, but still rules). Mainly, rappers like El-P and Aesop Rock don't use as much street slang or African-American vernacular, while still using more "sophisticated" vocabulary words. To me, this is actually a question of bias in American culture for associating black dialects with lack of intelligence, and people who use "sophisticated" vocabulary without any kind of local dialect as more intelligent, regardless of the content of their speech/writing.

    shit don't even make sense. if they're cryptic how do you know if they're intelligent?

    take any mainstream rock groups lyrics as an example of how lyrics can be cryptic and stupid as fuck.

    Yes, a lot of abstract underground rappers are white. Hardly an overwhelming majority.

    The amount of white rappers are rising at a fast rate and I wouldn't be surprised of a 50/50 balance 5 years from now.

    Listen to Aesop Rock's Daylight or Qwel's Highest Commitment, dudes are on a whole different level.
