Hopefully that'll turn into the trend.
Would be nice, but I'm doubtful

He's right that it does, but so what?
....sooo you get many eggheads like in this thread commenting on how he's nothing special and are completely missing the point.

If you don't care for rap then why bother. His flow is comparable to the top 3 MCs ever while still sounding very unique. Kendrick Lamar will be in hip hops top ten when its all said and done .

I wouldn't bother, it was on Conan and since I go to this site all the time I recognized the hype but failed to see anything remarkable about him. Maybe it was a bad performance? My gf commented that he sounded like a kid learning to read aloud.

And why would she say that? I understand him having a high-pitched voice, but nothing about him rapping reflects his intelligence. What nonsense.

No, not that he sounded unintelligent, rather the words didn't flow out of his mouth like other rappers. Probably just a bad performance.

Dude, save yourself the embarrassment and don't talk about rap.

Just like I wouldn't jump into a screamo thread and pretend they have a shred of talent.

The difference is that I actually like some rap, I don't blindly hate an entire genre.

so having a flow different from other rappers is a bad thing? I don't know what performance you saw but he probably killed it.

My thoughts exactly. I thought the same with "Swimming Pools (Drank)" too...I feel like a lot of people aren't realizing that this song is sort of parodying his start in rap and "Drank" is disapproving of the wasted/faded lifestyle.

I guess it comes down to what sells for him/his label, which is kind of sad. I'd love to see "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe", "Art of Peer Pressure", or "Money Trees" as next single.
There's also no guarantee that the public would grasp the messages in those songs either (to play devils advocate )

I feel like this comes off as just about any hip-hop single without the context of the album.
Exactly. That's exactly what's going on.
I think it's great. Rope 'em in, and give them what they didn't expect.

Just saw this guy on Conan....what the fuck is all the fuss about?! Everyone on AP seems to suck this guys dick but there is nothing special about him. Granted I don't care for rap typically but even with other lauded acts (i.e.; saw a Frank Ocean performance, thought it was chill and a bit unique) I can see why someone may be popular. This guy seemed to be reading off a card or something.
Listen to his records... "Section 80" or GKMC. This is all part of the bigger picture.



... he's alright live. He's better when the crowd is hyped with him.
