Outkast is by FAR the best rap group to come out of the South. The closest are the Geto Boys, but beyond that, it isn’t even close.
3000 doesn’t rap in code. He just doesn’t rap simple. There is a big difference.
Cats complain about Jay Z’s dumb it down line, but there is a reason he said that. Somebody like Common packed metaphors, and personification and symbolism into his rhymes for years and cats complained it was too dense. Dre does the same thing. It ain’t code, it just makes you use your brain.
Luda is a punchline rapper with a cool voice. That’s it.
Luda <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Big Boi, Dre, Scarface, Bun B, TI, Lil Wayne. He might be worse than 8-Ball back when 8-Ball actually cared about rapping.
@ Allenp: I didn’t know people actually complained that some rappers were, you know, songwriters… lol.
You’re right, of course.
