    Can an artist be a GOAT candidate without achieving mainstream success?

    Classic material, respect of your peers, underground successs – but no platinum or gold plaques, no chart topping records, etc ..

    You just described Doom.
    ^
    DOOM is who I had in mind, but I meant I general. There’s a few others who could fit that description.

    Was just curious what the consensus was on this.

    To me, no one can fuck with DOOM. As far as straight up rhymes, IMO he has no competition.
    And he’s not canibus either, he actually makes great songs and albums.

    The knock on DOOM is that he’s rappity rap’s poster child (I disagree, but that’s another convo) and that he hasn’t and probably never will achieve mainstream success.

    But would u consider him one of the GOATs?

    He gets more praise & adoration then artists who have sold quadruple the amount of records as he has.

    He might not get that mainstream love but for his corner of the Hip-Hop universe, Doom is definitely one of the GOAT’s, if not THE GOAT.

    I don’t think currency has the technical skill to be considered one of the GOATs

    And that’s no shots, I’m a fan. But I’ve never been made the “someone farted” face because of some currency lyrics.

    Great music? Yes. Great MC? No.

    I think Currensy has the technical skill to be one of the greats.

    His production choices as well as his content & “lazy flow” will always hold him back tho.

    People respect money.

    Even Nas had to sell some units before he was really looked at as one of the greats.

    I agree, but I ove stand the argument against it

    I’ve never heard a few bars from currency where I was totally blown away (ll) by the sheer technical skill of them

    When I first heard “figaro” for example, I had to reevaluate all the shit I considered to be dope from a technicall standpoint

    I think delivery has a lot to do with it as well as the kinda beats he rocks out over.

    Cause dude drops gems. He just doesn’t emphasize them when he’s spitting & with that lazy drawl, if you’re not listening close & paying attention, you’re liable to miss the set up to an ill punchline or his words have a lot of double meaning so someone who’s only surface listening will dismiss some of his bars.

    @AmpGeez a.k.a. Amphernee Hardaway

  14. Rajon Trondo Says:

    I don’t mean messages and gems within the lyrics

    I mean like intricate internal rhyme patterns, or carrying the same pattern for 48 bars

    That type of shit

    The rest is empty with no brain but the clever nerd
    The best emcee with no chain ya ever heard
    Take it from the Tec-9 holder
    They bit and don’t let a faint get Ishmael
    A shot of Jack got her back it’s not an act stack
    Forgot about the cackalack, holla back, clack clack blocka
    Villainy, feel him in ya heart chakra chart toppa
    Star shit stoppa be a smart shoppa
    Shot a cop day around the way ’bout to stay
    But who’d a know there’s 2 mo’ that wonder where the shooter go
    ‘Bout to jet, get him, not a bet, dead ‘em
    Let ‘em spit venom said ‘em got a lot of shit with ‘em
    Let the rhythm hit ‘em, it’s stronger in the other voice
    We make the joints that make ‘em spread ‘em butta moist
    Man, please. The stage is made of panties
    From the age of baby hoochies on to the grannies
    Ban me the dough rake, daddy
    The flow make her fatty shake, patty cake, patty cake
    For fake, if he was Anita Baker’s man
    He’d take her for her masters, hit it once an’ shake her hand
    On some ol’ thank ya ma’am an’ ghost her
    She could mind the toaster if she sign the poster

    A whole host of roller coaster riders
    Not enough tracks (is it?)
    Hot enuff black (for ya)
    It’s too hot to handle, you got blue sandals
    Who shot ya? Ooh got you new spots to vandal?
    DO not stand still, both show skills
    Close but no crills, toast for po’ ills, post no bills
    Coast to coast Joe Shmoes flows ill, go chill
    Not supposed to overdose, no Doz pills
    Off pride tikes now talk wide though scar meat
    Off sides like how Work rides with Starfleet
    Told ya, on some get-riche shit
    As he get older he gets colder tha a witch tit
    This is it, make no mistakes
    Where my nigga go?
    Figaro, Figaro

    O’s beats and my rhumes attack
    A scary act
    All black like Ms. Mary Mack
    Wait ’til you see ‘em live on the piano
    DOOM sings soprano like uno dos y’ano
    My momma told me
    Blast him and pass her her glass of Ol’ E
    Not to be troublesome
    But I coul sure use a quick shot of double rum
    No stick of bubble gum
    I like ice cream
    We could skip the wedding
    Have a nice dream
    She only let him stick the head ïn

    ^
    Who the fuck else could write some shit like this?
    Every bar has like 5 internal rhymes..

    *stans*

    Doom was cool as Zev Love X, that weird ass abstract shit he be doing aint up my alley. Doing that licensing deal w/ Adult Swim has broaden his audience, tho…His beats be sounding cool…
