    Freestyling is the art of improvisational rhyming, nothing is premeditated, all "off the dome" as they say. Most wannabe emcees will claim their raps are freestyle when they're actually reciting a previously written rap, this is WACK!!

    This is MC Juice, imo he's the best....

    Monie Love was a really good female rapper. Probably my favourite track being I Can Do This.

    Dylan listen to this track, this beat is banging man. I know, I know, it's Gym Class Heroes, but a hot track is a hot track. Also there are plenty of remixes of Kanye's track from the new album that are sounding good. Go get em.

    1996 House of Blues Smokin' Grooves Tour-probably the best cross-sample of the most influential artists from hip-hop's peak:
    Cypress Hill
    The Fugees
    A Tribe Called Quest
    Busta Rhymes
    Nas

    Man that was a good day in my life.

    Beat boxing is the art of making a beat using only your mouth. Hopefully Tim will step his game up a little and tell you a little more about it since he's seen some of the best beat box battles with his own two eyes.

    As far as I know, Rahzel is still the best....

    Eminem in his prime was a beast and so was Nas. Right now I really like Jay Electronica.

    his lyrics are just amazing. 99% of all his songs you can relate to (at least i can) and i can feel the passion, and you can tell by everyone of his songs, he is a real mother fucker. i guess its just prefrence in style but no one can amaze me lyrically like slug can. plus his lyrics are very very thought provoking, and not many other MC's can do that for me (maybe zack de la rocha if he is considered an "MC")

    dont get me wrong, they were, but slug has been great IMO from Overcast. and i think he has been better than both eminem and nas, and i can prove it (not trying to be an ass hole about it )

    I started with PE as my first hip hop group, but I gotta say I like chuck d more as a person than his raps. I'm not says he's bad at all. I gotta say my all time favorite PE song is that main track from He Got Game. I forgot the name though.I actually think its called that "he got game" that's a great song

    You can't be serious. Atmosphere isn't that good. Rhymesayers are very overrated. Give it a rest.

    Like you said, it all comes down to preference I agree with most of your points. Slug is a great song writer but I wouldn't go much further than that. Especially, if you want to talk about lyricism.

    In my opinion he reaches with a lot of his lyrics. He seems to throw random stuff in there as a filler or just because it rhymes. Granted, he's good at doing this because he has done it forever but to me his verses seem to be a little scattered. He does have a solid vocab and top-notch delivery, which is why I personally like him. Lyrically Eyedea is better and I'm sure Slug would be the first to say that. I use him for an example because of their relationship.

    As far as being real, tattooed hands coming to life isn't real. Despite that song being awesome and a classic it is not real at all. I think a good portion of his stories are all made up and not things he's really been through. This really isn't a discredit to him, it shows how good he is at using his imagination while writing but I don't get the impression that it's HIM in a lot of his songs.

    Slug doesn't really use multi-syllable rhyming schemes which I'm an absolute sucker for. To me this is a key factor in judging lyricism, it doesn't need to be 3+ syllables all the time but showing the ability to do it from time to time goes a long way for me. Black Thought is a great multi-syllable rhymer (and my favorite rapper). He also seems to stay on a subject better than Slug, imo. To me it seems when Slug focuses on rhyming his story telling becomes weaker and vice versa. He's good at both aspects individually but doesn't seem able to put the two together cohesively.


    I hope I did okay in explaining that. Slug is great and a very talented musician, he pours his heart and soul out in his live performances and I had a blast during his Coachella set. But as far as rapping or lyricism itself, there are many rappers I think are much much better. He's not even close to being in my top 10.

    I'm dead serious. His lyrics are very underlooked. I'm not trying to start a heated argument or anything but when ever some thinks I'm ignorant or just stupid for saying slug is a genius, they don't back up their point with anything. No comparisons or analysis. So if you could, so if you could, please back up your statement
