I don't think I've ever heard a kanye song where he hasn't rhymed a word with the same word. That's even worse than the examples mt posted. It's hip hop, they have to include that stuff. Gotta make white kids feel tough as they cruise around the suburbs in their parents' cars somehow.

Cue the person who says "bono had done that and is great" bullshit. He's a tool for doing it too. They all are.

Not anyone.

But you two? Yeah.

Ok. Myself and Mount Temple are dumb.

That's the jist of it? Right?

We questioned one of your buddies.

He provided a very, very poor defense.

You jumped in to defend him.

And that defense is that we're dumb.

Lazarus, where are your degrees in Neuroscience? To make such bold diagnosis of each of us?

Do you actually understand what the term "dumb" means?

I didn't think subjective opinions of music tastes and having discussions around them would degrade to childlike taunting.

Perhaps you prefer to educate yourself from the scholars like 2Pac, Snoop Doggy Dogg and the former heavyweight Notorious BIG.

Now, hold on. He's just defending COBL. He's being noble.

Remember how dumb we are. He posted a picture as proof.

Object to misogynistic rap lyrics?

Lazarus: "You're dumb."

Or, in our case, dumb and dumber.

Of course you don't. Who does?

You have Lazarus to step in and defend your honor. It's kinda romantic.

Also, I'm not sure someone questioning Kanye's lyrical content is trolling. It's perfectly legit. You declared him great.

You think anyone who challenges that is a troll?

Here's a hint: consider our attitude based on accumulation, rather than solely something from this thread.

Ah, you don't like me, so, you decided to drop in on this thread and call me dumb.

Your calling me dumb actually had NOTHING to do with what was being discussed here.

You just saw me and had to call me dumb.

Class act.

Apparently you don't understand the use of the word "solely".

Thanks for proving me right!

Lol are we arguing about whether Kanye makes quality music or not? Twisted Fantasy is the most acclaimed album released this century. That's a fact. No album has ever won Pazz and Jop's year end poll by a wider margin, going back to the 70s. It has an absolutely unheard of 94 on metacritic out of 40+ reviews. I feel no reason to defend the album at this point because there literally dozens of glowing reviews that do the same thing already. It's a fucking great album, people are going to be praising it for years. The end.

There's also no point in arguing that Schloop is antagonistic. The sky is also blue.

The question wasn't about the music, it was about the lyrics.
