It means when he 'raps' it doesn't sound natural?

Like, he was having a hard time coming up with a word to rhyme, with, for example "government" or something, and it sounds "forced"

Im not too sure either, proggyman is generally pretty vague with his derogatory statements =/

This isn't La Rocka but it's a pretty clear example:
As the cheerless towns pass my window
I can see a washed out moon through the fog
And then a voice inside my head, breaks the analogue
Lol, breaks the analogue.

Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip
I tried to grip my family
But I slipped


I always laugh when I hear those two lines.

Especially in the case of Proggy's example I'd argue it's more about the way the words sound when said together. And that part of Guerilla Radio has a great sound.

I've never thought of him as a great lyricist, just a distinct voice with great energy.

I don't like Rage, still I'll agree with that. But the best white rapper?

Everlast gets my vote

Can't stand Eminem. Just seems like he tries to hard
