    I disagree, because most people don't dig for music. They listen to what's played by peers or what's popular and are in their own bubble.

    Look how people up here how are probably more knowledgeable and aware than the average person are still being put on to music. People are still getting in to Griselda.

    also the 90's was far more diverse, because being similar was shunned. If you were number two you had to prove yourself and earn it. Fab who never even really sounded like Mase to me got that. Now compare that to how many people sound alike now. You weren't getting record deals if you were like someone else. You've heard the stories of rappers being turned down, because they sounded like _____?

  5. Yep, aside from that it's all about the writers really. Which of course I would argue BIG is as good as it gets.

    90’s was waaaaaay more diverse musically. New beats and styles were dropping all the time. Even the way the sound changed from the early to late 90’s. There are WAY MORE ARTISTS now but 90’s had diversity on lock.

    This is facts, she had the most memorable and stand out verse. I agree wit u on this debate tho, Kim was no different, except BIG wrote her raps and gave her the flow and cardi has a team. These *****es sell us sex they the look and rhymes that are penned by others.

  10. I think you're proving my point in a sense. The fact that off of a forum post I can immediately stream Griselda's catalog and check out their music for free allows me to discover artists that I would have to pay $14 each to digest. People will always play what's popular, but now we have more opinions on the table than 2 or 3 radio stations DJs. I've discovered music from someone playing it on IG or in the background on YouTube. You might get put on to a song by a curator that you follow on Twitter, or a podcast. So many artists get discovered on SoundCloud everyday that radio completely avoided. Even a prolific artist like the Weeknd put out multiple projects before mainstream radio and millions of people checked it out via a blog post.

    There are far more avenues to find artists.
     
  11. lol that was a wild take, she has 0 musicality, slightly more than the City Girls and Blueface who are sitting at about a -10 on the delivery scale

    No, I'm not proving your point

    and already answered what you said.

    What's the percentage of people who come in the music section versus on NT? I'd say it's easily less than 10%, because it's mostly the same ones interacting with each other. We're the ones more likely to be in to new music.

    You have people who are still finally listening to Griselda in this section. They've been with Shady for two years. So that's four or five years after they've become pretty popular on the underground scene.

    And artist starting small before gaining popularity is nothing new and distinct for just today. Music has always been like that. You think The Beatles just popped up performing in front of 20,000 people? The only difference is how music is consumed.

    Cardi has one of the worst flows and deliveries I have ever heard. She sounds like English is her third language. I can’t believe how off she is at times.


    And I don’t give a ****, Kim getting played in my car or house at the same volume as anyone else.

    Pre-06 in general was full of that.

    Pretty much. Despite the fact that she's very rehearsed in her rhymes and has a ton of handlers, she delivers her rhymes with 1000% confidence and you can't take that away from her. I thought her album was very well put together around that time. This new single though (Press?)....wow...it is awful.

    Has nothing to do with her conviction or confidence in what she's saying. That broad believes everything that comes out her mouth and that's why these thots FEEL IT. When she raps she literally got these **** in a trance

    This was cool.

    Beat or song missing something though. Like a beat break down or a bridge or Timbo sing rapping a good hook.

    I don't think it has anything to do with her confidence or conviction, it's because of her online persona and honesty.

    She built a brand before she ever picked up a microphone.
     
  22. Dudes are confusing having a good rapping delivery with her persona. Let some random chick spit those exact bars with the same struggle flow she has nobody would care. Cardi has a entire team helping her get through verses cuz her and her label know rapping ain't that much of a talent for her. Her accent is super heavy and how she says certain words it's not a smoove flow to it. Listen to one of Megan's freestyles then listen to a Cardi song where she got people coaching her and she's able to punch in and out. Her flow is terrible compared to other females.

    Shouldn't have to go to certain lengths to discredit someone, especially someone who lacks in 9/10 areas when it comes to rapping.

    Shorty delivery is fire, online persona/brand or whatever you want to use as the "reason" has nothing to do with it.

    Joseline Hernandez had a huge online persona BEFORE Cardi and her delivery ****ing sucks. Straight garbage rapper that never popped at all

    Y'all can say whatever y'all want about Cardi but her delivery is one of the best in the game right now.

    We can give Offset and her handlers a bunch of credit that's fine because his delivery is top notch as well.
