Lyrically he is pretty weak. I think the Snoop comparisons are somewhat accurate. Average at best lyricist with great delivery who talks about smoking weed a lot and has great beat selection.

Nothing I heard before Kush & OJ appealed to me. That album has such great production though, and he sounds right at home on the beats. How Fly, the album he did with Curren$y is very good as well.

He is blowing the fuck up right now too. I realllly hope he doesn't get an early mainstage spot... whatever stage he's at though is going to be one giant pot party.

I agree with GolfWang. I didn't pay much attention to Wiz until about six months ago. His image (young/tatted/skinny/snoop-esque) and background (military brat/lived in different countries/never grew roots) is a great foundation for a good Hip Hop artist. That said, he's not Snoop. Even if he was, Snoop did it and did it a decade+ ago and things have moved on.

I've listened to 'Deal or No Deal' and various mixtapes/singles, and I just can't get excited. For sure, his producers are above average, but I don't "feel" him.

I'd figure he'd have a more diverse background to draw upon, but his lyrics often devolve into the same-same that is mixtape/swagger rap these days. Call me old school, but I want something deeper. Q-Tip was doing it at the same age as Wiz, why can't he?

BTW, Gutter Rainbows by Talib Kweli is solid as solid can be.

Thank god there are six stages at coachella cuz i will be at the one on the complete opposite side that he is on! I honestly dont get it? am i really too old now or something? i've grown up listening to great hip hop, this is just Bad, these college kids need to find something better to latch on to than this.

Not looking for him to be Q-Tip, but I understand your point. Different times and different styles, I was just trying to compare the products of two artists around the same age.

As for the weed-smoking-mc-route, people like Devin The Dude and Domogenesis do that better.

Besides, in 2011 talking about smoking weed on your album is almost as cliche as, "Throw your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care" in a day when it's legal in almost a third of the US.

Alright-- I will give you that the beat in the clip is solid. I could bump to that with *zero* lyrics. Which is the problem. With, say, Snoop, his melodic tone and delivery are half the package. He can make average lyrics sound interesting and different, whereas I don't see that with Wiz.

He has *something* and is well trained in the MC game as it exists today, but he needs to find a subject matter that is better served to his talents.

Shit, rap more about being uprooted to a new city/country on a regular basis. Talk about the wacky cats he met along the way, even as a kid. That's far more interesting to me as a listener than the same ol' same ol' rapper cliches.

TLDR: Kid has great material, use it.

Curren$y defines boring.

You've got shit twisted. Out of all people saying Curren$y's boring, it's the guy backing Wiz. Seriously, I fucking hate Lil Wayne but when it comes to skills he's got way more than Wiz. Wiz has no talent, no originality (95% of his raps consist of weed, food, or about how he doesn't do blunts and only smokes joints, which is the most original thing about him mind you bragging about smoking joints and talking down about blunts is retarded), a weak sense of humor, and a terrible stage presence. His beats can be good but their not even his work. My god, Black and Yellow makes me sick. I live in New Orleans and hardly anybody supports him out here. He's done man. Nobody expected him to get as big as he is and nobody supports him just because he is now. Curren$y's got love through and through this city because of the talent and allegiance to back it.

Oh yeah, fuck Lil B too.

WhyTheLongFace
02-24-2011, 11:11 AM
LOL. Nice rationale. I live in NO (Currensy's hometown) and we like Currensy more. DUH!

And I don't care about the skills argument. Wiz and currensy are equal in skill. Neither of them bring anything new to the table. AT ALL. Only differnce is Wiz makes good music. Nothing original or refreshing but good. And Curren$y sounds like he falling asleep off 20 xanax bars. I've seen both live and trust me Curren$y is boring and can't wait to go backstage and play Duck Hunt and smoke more weed.

I've seen both live and trust me Curren$y is boring and can't wait to go backstage and play Duck Hunt and smoke more weed.

I wasn't necessarily using it as an argument, just a point of support. Usually, if someone's true to their roots while they're getting big they'll have their hometown's support. Wiz doesn't have much support within his own city because he has little to no content other than the three topics mentioned earlier. Listen to the verses. They both love their weed, yeah, but Curren$y doesn't make his music revolve around it. Neither Curren$y nor Wiz are original, you've got a point there, but Wiz just sounds like he uses the same verses for nearly every song. The same verses that any cloudy-headed weed rapper has had for the last 20 or so years. Now the skills argument, that holds no water with Wiz. He raps at a talking pace and his lines aren't attention-grabbing or witty at all. They're Top 40 hip-hop lines. Every now and then he says something witty or funny but once in a blue moon. I'd argue the exact opposite with Curren$y. He sounds super laid back and that's fine, I dig laid back shit. But he can also pick up his flow, freestyle damn quick and well, and come up with lines that make you think more than just weed and women. Looking at what we both have to say about them I think it just comes down to taste though. We're obviously fans of the opposite people and we each have our reasons. I think Wiz is corny, you dig him. You think Curren$y's boring, I dig him. We got our opinions on the table but there's not much more you can say. Enjoy Wiz's set man. I'll be hoping for a Ratatat or Presets conflict.
