@aapadre Exactly. I think Black Thought is probably one of the greatest written freestylers ever. But I also believe things can always be improved. Just look at off the top freestyling, Harry Mack has showed that what people previously thought was impossible, he can do without any effort and zero mistakes. The skill level will keep improving.

@whoIS AminoBlack thank u. This is pure greatness but how can we expect the culture to move forward just to say there’s no way this can be topped. If hip hop has reached its potential then what is the point of moving forward? I want my kids to know with hard work they can progress the genre past this point and keep the tradition and culture going past ourselves. This is praise to black thought but limiting to the same genre that gave him a platform

If only Black Thought and Andre 3000 would do an entire album together...... instant Euphoria. There isn't an element on Earth worthy enough to replicate their album. Some go gold, some go platinum, If Black Thought and 3000 came together, the engineers would literally have to travel to Jupiter to mine some intergalactic ore to bring back for their album. And anyone who is a music lover knows I'm right.

Also for those speaking cannabis is better, surely mean better to smoke. Obviously ban wagoners & late recognizers of the deeper more infinite parts of hip hop. Did you not hear him mention : the Excalibur in his rhyme??. If you knew rap wise who carries the Excalibur, you would not even mention Cannabis in the same sentence with Black Thought🤔. It's cute, but almost the equivalent of the average ghetto street thug talking politics and which president likes and did more for blacks to a white person that is privileged and sitting at a table in an exclusive country club outside of Birmingham, Alabama in 1962...

😂😂😂, spoken like a true white man enamored by the substance and lyrical prowess of this force, desperately curious on what process allows his brain to fire so quickly matching words and phrases of metaphor, metaphysics, and facts together so quickly 10 bars ahead of a punchline etc etc... Even if you're black, still spoken so, to bring truth and unseen force/ability, into reality for study. One must first become familiar with the elemental forces, understand/recognize the relevance of : concrete thought, abstract thought, and desire thought. You have to know that you are in control of the body which has an onboard computer; the brain, then access that modem/stored info, and enable continuous streaming... How do I explain what words can not describe...

@Gre Funky Well most rappers these days stink and pay for ghost writers so that’ll be why they can’t off the dome freestyle hahah but I get what you’re saying 👍 The ones that can make good music and freestyle if asked to are the ones we need to respect more - because there really aren’t many out there. I don’t even like Juice WRLD’s music, but man I’d listen to him freestyle all day. He was one of very few tbh. King Los, like you mentioned is up there though for sure.
Gre Funky
Gre Funky 5 gün önce
​@Luke Davies I can agree with you there. Although it would be easy to think that they are similar., in most cases off the top freestylers and written rappers don't transition well into each others categories, it's almost like they use completely different parts of the brain, as many written rappers talked about the difficulty of off the top, and vice versa. But can definitely understand you not liking his sound, to each their own mate.
Luke Davies

@Gre Funky Yeah I know about Mack mate. Man’s vocabulary is next level hahaha nobody can deny his off the top freestyles are nuts. He just doesn’t (in my opinion though ofc) sound good. And if he was to make music I wouldn’t listen to it you know? But yes I’ve not seen anyone on Mack’s level tbh, you give the man a word and he’ll give you a whole paragraph of bars related to that word, off the top of his head 😂

@Luke Davies Although I have huge respect for many of the off the top legends like King Los, Eyedea and Juice, I truly believe Harry Mack is the best off the top freestyler to have ever lived, and it's not even close. Watch this one video of him and see what you think. Would be interesting to hear your thoughts. trvid.com/video/video-1XZJKKNopEw.html Incase youtube doesn't show links: v=1XZJKKNopEw

This is like a breath of fresh air for all 80's babies that grew up hungry for some lyrical knowledge. This is a true poet from our time. I listened to this flow at least seven times. He covered so much historical content while using powerful metaphors, analogies, allegory, and idioms.
