Sure. You're right. You're totally right. You nailed me. You got me.

You dislike me because (among other things) I was questioning the lyrical genius of Kanye West. And, for that sin (among many other sins), I am dumb.

Check that.

Mount Temple & myself are dumb.

Go back to all the glowing reviews and tell me that it was only the production and hooks that were focused on.

I wouldn't even go there. If you don't think Kanye is a lyrical genius you're in for hell. You're gonna get the wrath of Lazarus. He'll call ya dumb and post a rather hysterical picture as proof.

He is who he is. Many find his style appealing, others don't. I don't appreciate the insinuation that I am in some way morally or intellectually inferior because I garner enjoyment from his lyrics. The album is self reflective and the results aren't pretty. I prefer the process of examining personally unflattering lyricism over a bunch of shallow, crowd pleasing tripe that ultimately reveals shallow, uninteresting people.

Give me Yeezus' lyrics over Mechanical Bull's any fucking day. At least I feel close to the artist.

This often seems to be the response when hip hop lyrics get called out. The claim is that people are only looking at the negatives, bit where, in this artist's case, are the positives?

There are plenty of hip hop artists I love a great deal, Common, Cunninlynguists, etc., so it's not like I hate the genre, I just find things like the majority of the lyrics on MBDTF to be quite distasteful, despite how strong the music is.

Honestly the only reason I even said anything is because I'm tired of some poster's questions being ignored, simply on the basis that they're not worthy of being discussed with.

It's just about as annoying as the original posts that created such negative feelings towards certain posters in the first place.

Yeah. I want to be close to a guy who makes fun of people with Parkinson's disease. There is nothing fascinating about someone revealing how shallow and disgusting they are.

We've actually reached the point where shitheads are actually revered for being shitheads.

I'll gladly take the lyrics on Mechanical Bull over some asshole discovering he's an asshole: Kanye.

OK. I feel differently, and I told you why already, so we're good.

A good deal of lyrics in any genre are going to be terrible. This is not a problem confined to hip-hop. You could make the argument that hip-hop has a tendency to be aggressively offensive, which certainly seems to be the shtick of Tyler the Creator and others in his style, but to say that the genre is devoid of insightful lyrics is short-sighted at best. Killer Mike's Reagan, which I just heard on a DI list, had very poignant lyrics.

Well that's because Killer Mike is a Grade A bad ass. What a guy.
