Why? You better be careful about what you say. Wu-Tang Clan aint nothin to mess wit. And we do already have a thread about bad rappers, I think. From the OP this doesn't really seem like a discussion as to what makes, doesn't make a good rapepr but more of a stab at rap in general.

I don't know if he's saying Ghostface should be in a top 3 worst rappers thread.

Anyway, what don't you like about Ghostface Killah's music, lieasleep? He's probably one of my favorite Wu-Tang members. He's one of the most consistent, his voice is cool, his delivery is full of energetic youth, and his imagery can be pretty fantastic. I can see how he might not be someone's favorite Wu-Tang member (he's the least Wu-y, really), but I don't really see how he's not likeable.

i kinda think this thread has been derailed a bit, hasnt it?
"why do critics give rap albums good reviews?"
oops.

On Topic:
Lil Wayne's yet to be released "Rebirth" album, which is actually mostly autotuned rock music, has been getting fairly positive reviews it may or may not deserve at this point.

Exactly what I was going to say

But the majority of music critics aren't musicians themselves so I don't trust them, when I buy an album, I make my own review.

Even the better rappers out there like Lupe Fiasco,K'naan can't produce a anything classic. The only classic rap album I have ever liked was from a group called Camp Lo called "Uptown Saturday Night" in 1996 The beats were enjoyable and there lyrics and slang was very creative, to this day I have trouble understanding what exactly there rapping about in some of there songs.

It's beyond me how some critics can say that Lil Wayne's "Carter 3" is better then the Fleet Foxes album. According to Metacritic Reakwon's new album is in the top 5 and in fact is prop ****.

I feel critics are almost forcing themselves to give good reviews to rap albums just so they just don't upset that audience.
Have you ever felt that maybe that people can have differing opinions from yours?

Also, I don't see why rap is always berated for it's gangbang lyrics when the classic rock that these rap haters usually listen to contains plenty of sexual references (not to mention half the songs seem to be about one night stands) and drugs & alcohol in general. Just something I thought I'd point out.
