PostSubject: N3R0's Thoughts On The Most Important Song Of The Year   Mon 14 Sep 2009, 7:14 pm

"Forever" by Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West & Eminem


I know, it's only September. BUT I don't honestly don't see any song passing this particular track's importance this year. I'll oversimplify my points for those not interested in reading this whole post:

1) Proved Drake can spit while maintaining pop sensibilities, even hanging with the best the mainstream has to offer right now.

2) Nobody is fucking with Em on the mic this day and age.

3) Lil Wayne, dispite his vocal fanbase, isn't doing anything anywhere that Ludacris and TI can't do. Anybody that that can look me straight in the face and say they wouldn't have even rather heard Young Jeezy on this song is in straight denial.

4) Kanye West might have some skill, but again, couldn't Common, Lupe Fiasco, Bumpy J, Consequence, GLC, Rhymefest, etc etc etc ripped this better? Hell, one or more of them might have even contributed some lyrics to Ye's gross mishandling of his verse.

5) The east and west coasts and wading REALLY close to irrlevancy outside of their own minds.


Now on to the finer points, this track is about dominance. It's no wonder MC's always bring their best when their challenged, hip hop is competitive by nature. So, Drake hears who he's spitting alongside and (naturally) steps his game up. Even more than his boss, Weezy F. Baby. Wayne obviously has no respect for his fanbase or his craft at this point...he's on a track with one of the greats (a collab he's BEGGED for in the past, mind you) and STILL can't commit a fucking piece of paper or more than one (maybe 5 or 6, if you can't the ad-libs and punch-ins) take for his half assed verse. Kanye West did the best he could, which isn't terrible, but c'mon, who wouldn't have rather heard a million other people over those strings? So what's this say about the state of hip hop? Well, while the present may not be the greatest (Wayne and Kanye) we shouldn't be TOO worried about the future when Drake actually gives a damn when he's spitting (even more so than Wayne and West, which is a DAMN shame) and we'll always have people commited to give it their all like Em. Do I really like the song? Eh, it's servicable and I'd actually rather have just heard Drake and Em go for two verses apiece (really, really sad) but I'd rather hear this on the radio than that Lady GaGa remix. But that's not what's important, what's important is what this song MEANS to hip hop...and I'm pretty hopeful.

N3GR0... lol

But, this sounds like a(n) (educated, to some extent) pop bopper review. Especially this part:

"2) Nobody is fucking with Em on the mic this day and age."

...Nobody is fucking with Em because he outspit Drake, 'Ye, and Wayne?

No, because his verse is blistering and I don't know of anyone that could have outspit him on there.

were you really that impressed with Drake's verse...?

to me it was good but by no means a sign of a future hip hop great, not even close. That and his voice isn't that appealing to me. The song is pretty good, nothing more, Em destroys it though

In theme with trotter's presentation of semi-esoteric rap songs I will produce what song I feel is the most important of the year for hip hop:

Dalek - We Lost Sight

"We lost sight of how to use these mics/what scripts we write/how to choose our fights"

Basically sums up the year in hip hop and the decline in mainstream hip hop over the past five years.

As far as mainstream artists go, I def. agree with Nero's argument. While nothing really grabs me about Drake's music, I think he can rap. As usual, Wayne sounds like he tried to make it sound like hes not trying. Ye's verse was eh...and Em went pretty hard.
