Well spoken, he should teach the rest of the Black Americans who decide to put rhyming verses to music how to actually write lyrics that have meaning.

Just because you don't see or understand the "meaning," doesn't "mean" it is not there.

Smokey Robinson is arguably the greatest songwriter of all time. This guys music is still standing the test of time 35-40 years later. One of my favorite Americans.

He's probably talking about the rap/hip-hop that's mainstream nowadays. Which IS pretty retarded. At least the older stuff like 2Pac had some meaning to it.
