It would be better if you gave me nothing at all
This album is less than nothing
I can't sell this fuging record!

Do you know why Dre's record was so successful?
He's rappin' about big-screen T-V's, blunts, 40's and pink flaps
You're rappin' about homosexuals and Vicadin

This sounds like something Uzi Vert would put out. Your son is like 20 or 21 right? This is the type of music I’d expect from that age range.

Its cool, but I liked his first track more. The content is cool, and your boy knows how to make a song. He’s just gotta craft something that will stand out. This isn’t it, but I honestly feel he’s close.

I'll be the contrarian and say that I think I liked this one a little more than the first.

I'd agree that, initially at least, my first thought was that the autotune/talkbox effect was a little overdone. But then, I think it plays really well with the odd beat.

It's still very commercial, which isn't necessarily a bad thing since that seems like that's what he's catering to/shooting for right now.

I know it is kind of a one-off track in that, structurally, it isn't necessarily a stand alone song. It's more of an interlude tbqh, but I I thought it was well done overall.

He's definitely talented, and if he hooks up with the right crew around him (producers, promoters, etc.) he could gain some notoriety.

Thanks for sharing!

@top dawg I know this is a thread for your son’s music, but if you don’t mind I’d like to discuss additional hip hop/rap matters in here as well. I want to bring up the Drake/Pusha T beef or back and forth, and get you alls opinion. I’ll post the songs from their spat, and let you all be the judge. I personally think Pusha got him, and the consensus on the net is Pusha got him as well, but I want to know what you all think? Do you think either party went too far; in particular, Pusha T in mentioning Drakes mom, dad, alleged son, baby mother, and sick friend? Would you like for it to continue or do you want a response from Drake? Who do you think won? Anything you want to discuss.

I, personally, feel Pusha got him but some of the stuff said was mighty low. It all stems from Drake mentioning his fiancé Virginia Williams. All I know is if he said what he said about my mom, I would’ve had to pay him a visit.

Anyways, it’s been a week and no response from Drake, although James Prince says Drake had a response, it just would’ve ended Kanye’s career *shrugs*. I don’t know. Anyways, thoughts? @MechaZain @top dawg @Cookie Lyon @panther4life @Bronn @bLACKpANTHER @rodeo @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER I know I’m missing some folks, but anyone can state their opinion.

 

Sorry dude I'm not white enough to listen to Drake.  :\

Agree completely.  Even within this style of rap it's the ones that have something unique about their voice or delivery that break through. Your boy's talented but he does himself a disservice trying to ride the wave instead of making it his own.

Yeah at two minutes it's only half a song at best. He would do really well in a collaboration with other artists that have contrasting styles.

i cant believe people actually got upset at lines being crossed in a rap beef. no such thing as too far in a rap beef as long as the shots remain in the lyrics and not on the streets.

i also dont think Push mentioning Drake's kid was a shot at the kid, more at Drake for being a deadbeat father, a further insult to Drake considering his father leaving his mother when he was a kid. and on a deeper level tying Drake to contributing to the cycle of fatherlessness in the black community.

J Prince pulled some bullshit excuse out to save his cash cow and Push already got what he wanted out of the beef, more attention for his recently released album and a major win against the most popular name in the game right now.

Yeah I don't get this. Ether is considered the gold standard of diss tracks and if we're being real it's ignorant and petty as hell. Gay slurs are cool but Pusha's mean for calling out Drake's secret family? Lol. Really just highlights how he demolished the dude. Only criticism people can come up with is "maybe it was too good of a diss?"

Anyway, Drake's a popstar and this beef clearly won't effect his numbers but his rap legacy is now dead and gone. Meek brought it into question with the ghostwriting reveal and this beef buried it. He likely end up the best selling hip hop artist of all-time, but Push effectively killed his chances at being considered a top emcee in the same breadth as Jay, Nas, Biggie, Pac, etc.  He's officially been delegated to Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber's lane.
