You don't have to defend yourself, we get it, haha. Also people don't have to "try" to do anything. It just comes across that way from what I've witnessed. Anyway, listen on. I do sometimes. He has some fun songs, but that's all they are to me, fun.
When I want to refer to a rapper with rhyming ability and knowledge, I'll go to Wu Tang or something like that. And if that sounds pretentious because they're old school, I'd go to Joey Badass even. Kid's got skills.
I'm not saying he's the best. It's obvious that he's not. Most of his peers are better in my opinion (ie. Schoolboy, Kendrick, Danny Brown etc.) I'm just saying that he's pretty good.
