i have listened to him. He sucks worse than jonas brothers. It hurts my ears to listen to him it's that bad.

Tell me why. Give me a valid reason. If you say his voice, then your opinions dismissed from the get-go.

Seriously IamAlejo, I'm not sure if you are as arrogant as you come accross in this argument, but stop telling people 'what hip hop is' because it's pointless. You aren't the arbiter of what is and isn't hip hop, and if I want to listen to some music that aspires to be more complex or challenging than Eminem, it doesn't make me some pretentious contrarian.

This wont prove anything for either side I imagine, but could be fun nonetheless - I'm only familiar with Em's greatest hits and barring about 4 songs the whole album is crap. I'll be interested in seeing what his more authentic material is like.

This is far from EL-P's best song, but the video is pretty cool so I thought I'd start with this.

No, I was listing classic albums from the beginning of the era. A more authentic hip-hop sound. Hence why I said learn from the classics. That whole reading comprehension thing is a real bitch though.

As to fruit...

And from many of the rappers I've heard, they jump around with their subject matter a lot of the time. mc chris pretty much takes a specific concept and lays down a track on it (Older Crowd, Hoodie Ninja, Beetlejuice). And listen to Freaks or Never Give Up if you think he doesn't evoke emotion. Everyone comes from different backgrounds though, so I'm sure you're so fuckin street you can't relate to anything mc chris raps about.

I still don't understand why you think Metaphor is a song.
"Hoodie Ninja"

I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a hoodie ninja

Got my ninja bag AKA a pillow case
Filled with nacho flavored combos, a flashlight, and masking tape

We got hoodies and some goodies, we got tools and also talent
Fisher Splinter stealth and some Barnum and Bailey balance
Katanas and shurikens so lets hurry across the yard
If there's dobermans jump over them it shouldn't be that hard

The objective is reconnaissance the subject is a hottie
Redhead from my homeroom with a bad ass little body
Hella dope telescope from little bros pirate phase
She's about to change for bed we gotta get there right away

I can't make out so I stake out take a doughnut make it glazed
I climb the tree and finally I feast upon her frame
She's rockin cotton panties, Sanrio so it seems
She's strechen and profechen, she's the cutie of my dreams
Lose the T, thirty-two B's. Yes I know her cup size
IMAX in my spy glass while my balls get bug bites. (OUCH!)

I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
You're off guard ninja star now you're injured
Tough luck nun chuck break your fingers
Gotta bolt cause I don't wanna linger

I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
You're off guard ninja star now you're injured
Tough luck nun chuck break your fingers
Gotta bolt cause I don't wanna linger

Got my ninja getup it's a Fett's Vette sweatshirt
Rockin awesome drawstrings tied so tight that my head hurts
Stolen black slacks that are supposed to be for church
Stuff the cuffs into my Chucks now I'm a ninja thanks to merch

I gotta kajanowa that's a grappling apparatus
Empanadas from my mama her burritos are the baddest
Lets eat 'em in the shed where my father keeps his porn
and I'll explain the mission its bitchin' word is born

Gym coach is a Nazi always got me runnin laps
I know he doesn't like me you should hear his frightening laugh
Can't put up with the push-ups and the crunches got me cranky
So we're gonna drop a dookie on the driveway like I'm Banksy

Yo you keep a look out while I drop my Fruit of Looms
And build myself a built to scale model of Mt. Doom
We hear the garage door motors and we motor mad fast
Drop a deuce into my shoes now I'm runnin crap laps


I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
I'm a hoodie ninja

I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
You're off guard ninja star now you're injured
Tough luck nun chuck break your fingers
Gotta bolt cause I don't wanna linger

I'm a ninja I'm a hoodie ninja
You're off guard ninja star now you're injured
Tough luck nun chuck break your finger
Gotta bolt cause I don't wanna linger

Seriously? Again, a pointless subject matter. Who gives a **** if he stays on topic, the topic means absolutely nothing. And the person below you explained how it could be a negative. I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Weird Al as not getting enough credit.
