    Default What do you value most in hip hop music?

    there are a lot of people with different tastes on this board, so i want to know what you personally value in an artist, what do u look for mainly? is it conscious subject matter, is it flow, is it wordplay/metaphors, is it pure creativity, just a dope beat and hook? etc

    personally, i cant really tell you what i look for, all i know is when i hear it i know it. different combinations of things can work really well in ways you woudnt expect. but i think above all i go with artists that try to be creative.

    its amazing how hard it is to pick one of these...damn. I mean I want to say the storytelling ability and real subject matter but damn, if a nigga does that over a wack beat with a terrible hook would I listen?

    Great example of wack beats & terrible hook = Uh Oh

    anyways: vocab, wordplay, beat, rhyme pattern, and subject matter

    LYRICS
    - creativity
    - choice of subject
    - wordplay

    are the most important nn finding a good mc i believe. Anybody can find a nice beat anybody can have an aight flow but u have to be talented to be able to use words in different and meaningful ways

    i really cant pick out anything..kuz i do love a wide range and variety of music...and i like all types of hiphop music..including..the hard shit..the concious shit..the love shit..the club shit..etc.etc.etc. So for me..its more or less how the song is delivered. When i hear the track..if it moves me..then in my mind..the artist has done his/her job..

    that being said...its offcial..Lupe Fiasco is now my favourite artist...he has the ability to paint a picture, using his words..and does it more than effectively...and not alot of artist can do that...or even come close....
