Anyone agree that there are some sick ass beats out now?...

  1. That are butchered by horrible "bitches and ho's" raps???

    Examples:

    that "Gigolo" song with R. Kelly
    Chingy "One call away"
    G-Unit "Them Thangs"
    Ludacris "Stand Up" (I don't mind this song AS much, but it's still annoying)
    Murphy Lee "Luv me baby"
    Ying Yang Twins "Salt Shaker" ... This one is by far the biggest let down. The beats are premo, but those two assholes really ruin the mood.


    The beats are hotter than ever, BUT I can't stand listening to any of the lyrics... It's so frustrating. Anyone else think it's a shame?

    You can look for the instrumentals for those tracks on KazaaLite.

    Couldn't agree more, some of the beats out there now are amazing (but of course listening to only the beats is pointless).

    Lyrical content in hip-hop hasn't been good in years, a revolution is needed...shits stale.

    Btw for the Vocal Stripper to work well you need to be playing pretty high quality files, otherwise it'll take out a lot of other audio channels as well as the lyrics.

    I tried it out on a 192kbps bitrate mp3, so if that's true, you're going to need it to be 320kbps or higher for that to work.
     
  7. agreed. "stale" is the perfect description of it.

    Eminem still has amazing lyrics IMO....

    I dont care what anyone says, his lyrics are always powerful and match the track.

    I couldnt agree more. He's probably the only mainstream rapper that I like. Rap has really taken a turn for the worse the past 5 or so years.

    i feel like i don't enjoy mainstream hip-hop now like i did 5 years ago, but i don't think it really has much to do with the lyrics that are coming out now. as far as i'm concerned, for the most part everyone is still rapping about the same stuff they were rapping about 5, 10 years ago. i think i'm just not impressed by what the artists are selling now like i used to be.

    it's like rap isn't evolving with the listeners. but that's okay to the rap industry cause as soon as someone such as me starts to get bored with what the industry is putting out, there are 9 others that are just being introduced to the whole hip hop community, and they are buying up all the albums.

    so whenever i hear people say rap isn't as good as it used to be, i think what they really mean is that they've grown out of what they used to like, and that rap is still just the same as it was.
