you clearly didn’t hear live love ASAP rocky got Hella styles, flows, melodies etc
2 chains none
Your opinion is your opinion, but by styles do you mean his derivative Houston screw style, or his derivative Midwest/Bone style, or his derivative I’ll just get all of these Lil B beats (Clams Casino) and call myself a pretty motherfucker style, or his I’m on codeine even though I’m a soho hypebeast style? Oh I get it he is from New York but he sounds like everywhere else… edgy. Rocky had some heat on there but the majority just seems like contrived cool chasing to me.
Everyone style comes from somewhere someone else tho so……
True. I don’t even think 2 Chainz is good on a actual level but, I think there is a difference between a skillful homage to an influence, where you truly study something and take it in a new direction, instead of just being like do you like regional trends in hip-hop well I’m all these things rolled up into one. Do you like fashion, well I love Raf Simons, see I just said his name. Do you like Bone? Well see I just did 4 bars in their cadence, and I said their name.
I don’t care what kizza found him at Black Scale our whatever soho outpost, and put a battery in his back, you are really gonna sit here and say that a nigga that rhymed “redbone complexion of a piglet” with “shitting on you niglets” is nice, in a legit way. At least 2 Chainz knows he is dumb as fuck, and its funny. Niggas actually act like this nigga is nice, one mixtape in and dude is already running out of stores on Mercer St. to namedrop. An NY bamma is still a bamma.
I don’t think anyone is positing that Rocky is “nice” in a traditional sense. Just that his tape shows a clear understanding of the importance of flow and beat selection, which 2Chainz’s tape does not, IMO.
Am I the only one who sometimes makes faces in the mirror and talks like I’m a member of the Wu Tang for 15 minutes on end?
