Default your opinion on Will Smith

i dont listen to Will Smith a lot, but i don't hold any ill will towards him in the least. it seems that lot of the "true hip hop heads" do though, so i'd just like to get some reasons why. he was a pioneer, and in my mind he should be held in the same regard as other seminal acts like Run DMC. sure he's not the greatest MC, but he's always been at least decent, not to mention positive. i know he's a big movie star now, but what is your opinion of him?

I got all his albums. One thing ive noticed is his new album "Lost and Found" has more of a traditional hip hop style than his previous albums. On Willenium for example there are quite a lot of Happy Happy songs like Will2K. On his new album the beats are more like what you would expect from a Rapper.

He may be different from other well known rappers but hes done well for himself and should be respected for the success hes had.

yea, he can flow. but he aint no fuckin pioneer. KRS, Percee P, Kool G Rap, Kool Moe Dee, Slick Rick and fuckin Rakim are pioneerz. when Percee P was rappin, and fuckin with flows that Will Smith aint even dreamin of, fuckin AIDS didn't even exist. oh, and he always plays himself in his movies. except the one where he's playin a fag. that was some good acting.

The only thing I have against Will Smith is when he still tries to rap. People can justify it and say he's gettin' money, but come on now. Dude makes $20 million per movie. He could spend a month making a wack-ass movie rather than embarassing himself on the radio. It's not like he's even trying. His ish is str8up manufactured pop music, like Nelly or Britney Spears.
