Hooks=poop

But I like what Premier does after a guru verse, he just scratches a sample that has something to do with the title of the song.

depends on the song. 'do you really (thang thang)' would be a much better song without that hook.

Default Re: hook or no hook?

it seems in 2005 it is all about the hook and not about the lyrics, where as in the 1990's in was more about the lyrics than the hook..........what was dope about WU TANG is that they focussed so much on the lyrics, most of there songs dont really have a hook......

......so I like the no hook........I like the gritty shit

Fucken exactly man. Its way better without the hook. But if the hook flows with the song its all good. But personally its better flowing without the hook

I prefer no hooks, like triumph. A great track doesn't need a hook. A hook is fine by me, but a rapper/mc shouldn't try to sing if they can't sing.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no, if the hook is strong and stands out and comes at you lyrically, then yes, but if its on some sing-songy shit with weak lyrics - NO.
