Then why do people hate souljah boy?
It's not like his style and clown-like behavior is unique or uncommon in the genre.
Why isn't MIM's considered great? "This is why im hot"is as good of a hook as "she licks me like a lollipop"

Hey don't blame me for people's lack of a humor. I don't mind Souljah Boy I just find Lil Wayne's lyrics far more amusing than his.

wow! its tied 6 to 6!
i think that he is a very talented rapper but i believe that he has been hyped up way too much. but most of his stuff is pretty solid.

Reasonable Doubt is the only thing close to good he's made. I have it at 3.5 stars on RYM.

Reasonable Doubt is an amazing hip hop album. And how can you say that the Black Album isnt good. Its another great album. I love Jay Z, he's got a great, original flow and writes sick rhymes.

Yeah actually I think I'm letting my indie snobbery get the best of me here. He isn't really my style of hip hop but the Black Album is excellent, the Blueprint isn't bad either. He's mad overrated sure but any hip hop artist with any talent whatsoever that breaks into the mainstream generally is.

"There's never been a nigga this good for this long
This hood
Or this pop this hot
Or this strong
With so many different flows
This ones for this song"

He even said it himself.

He's a pretty hit and miss lyricist, even if his flow's tight. Yah, The Black Album's alright as well, but American Gangster was total ****.
