    you think he talkin nonsense and he actually droppin science.

    ^ the message isnt in the words, but your interpretation…

    Question for you critical thinkers:

    are you more creative when restrictions are placed on your mental allowance. An example of this would be you were asked a question, and were given certain guidelines as to how you can answer.

    Or

    Are you more creative when given free range. Think about it.

    Redman sounds the same as ever

    ^^
    Is that a bad thing? So does Rae but that never stopped you from praising OB4CL2. Say i’m lying

    ——–

    i here you, and as a Rae STAN, i know that in my heart, but i hate to admit it… about OB4CL2 , i loved it at first (still do) but it got stale fast… like i said last week … Cocainism > OB4CL2
    ^^^
    Alright so im ignoring that last sentence, cuz to me its crazy talk, but on the subject of same flow/styles etc..

    why are people gonna hate on asomeone like Raekwon (not you but others) since he got his flow down, othe rappers too, but hes been doing it longer. dude has a nice style, either for you or it isnt. i like changing it up aas well, but with the BS thats been coming out, ill takea “same style” Raekwon, etc… over some shit music. Raekwon, Ghost, Redman, Method Man are all NICE FUCKING MC’S. PERIOD.

    If Blackout 2 is a continuation/sequel to the first, what you expect,a fucking country album.

    that was a lotta hate toward no one on here.

    no..

    free range allows too many distractions to become a possibility…

    if your given guidlines as to how to answer, it makes it easier for you to narrow down your mental research and focus on particulars

    If restrictions are placed, the creativity it takes to overcome that would be more impressive than if you had free range. Like trying to make a song with 12 seconds of sampling time, verses having an orchestra at your disposal…

    ^ I agree, so in a sense one can make the argument that, a certain amount of confinement is actually positive and necessary.

  8. 456 Says:

    ^its never that black and white. some minds thrive under pressure, some don’t. some minds thrive when left to their own devices, some can’t move without rules. It depends on a lot of things…

  9. Jersey*made*me Says:

    @cOLD

    You’re definitely more creative with restrictions. These restrictions cause you to adapt and make it work. For example, a poor kid in a house with no food after school creates a syrup sandwich,sugar water,ketchup sandwich,etc.

    i think maybe you’re on the right track but the example is wrong… the question in and of itself would be a guildline for thought… for example if i asked the question… do you think that birds can fly backwards…

    guidlines for that question would be things like

    birds

    flight

    flying backwards…

    all of those were guidelines that were never given or spoken…

    a better example would be…

    given a song with no words what would you do with it…

    creatively you can do whatever you want.. no guidelines.. no time limit…

    i think the emergence of lil wayne has set the art of emceeing back a coupla years.he is not ill

    ^^^

    This, but only because he made corny punchlines seem like they were dope. Dude came out during an era of horrible lyricism but because he wasn’t yelling in an ATL accent it was like “Oh good, lyrics”.. No, not really. People were just looking for something to cling to in the Snap Music RingTone era, and Jay wasn’t around, NaS wasn’t around, Em wasn’t around, and we were collectively over the Mos-Kwe-Common era, and KanYe was still looked at funny.

    Check back to Weezy’s “Run” and see how much of that shit was corny, or really just average. Again, Weezy’s run as “Best Rapper Alive” came at the weakest point ever, ever, ever. It’s like putting me in a room with 4th graders and me bragging about being tall and having other people go, “Man, he right, look at them short azz kids!” (nh)

    ^^^^^^very well put.

    ^what are you on about? (n)

    ——-

    chill Scrappy..

    i never said i hated anyone… all i said was he sounds the same… he been doing it almost 20 years and he’s always sounded the same… he’s a alltime great no doubt… but there comes a time when you have to either evolve, or seek another venue or vessel for your creativity… thats why all athletes and musicians eventually retire and or fall off…cause you cant go to the same well over and over lest you become predictable… and age lessens everyone’s skills at everything… its a natural process, its not hate…

  15. cOLD Says:

    ^ this is a good answer… So having outward “force” fosters creativity

    Word to me not dunking since 2006,that shit was painful. Nigga got up to 300lbs and was clapping boards on the fastbreak,smh. But I wish a nigga would jump with me now,got my mojo back.
