Eminem's flows got crazier and doper in my opinion as he's gone on - he only had that one battle flow he always used with punchlines on the first couple of albums mainly
if it weren't for Encore i would have agreed with you :P

Chad Vager: yeah, everyone on this song ripped it, try Ear Drum, I'm sure you'll like it, or just some singles, Hostile Gospel 1 and More or Less

First of all i voted both because at the end of the day, u can flow and flow but if your shit ends up like encore, imma take an album from one these so called 'boring flow' rappers like nas and jigga like someone said in a hilarious statement.

As for Content and flow...Nas has it..Content is dope and makes good music, flows to his shit and thats why he is one of the greats...not just based on content but because of his flow...anyone telling you nas cant flow dont know shit about nas and his history.

Second jigga, not a fan but again, dude got flow and while i dont like him personally, his content is not terrible.


Bishop is kinda a 50/50...is he a content based rapper or flow based rapper?....grow up would suggest dude thinks his content...but then the initial first single was 'feel on it' and that was all about flow and jamming to music, though it failed...it was in complete contrast to 'grow up'...im not big on bishop right now anyway

Also alot depends on what music you're making and how important content is for that type of music...if you're making a club joint, your content better fit a club joint...if your making a street gangsta joint...again, your content better fit that...same with more realistic/deep stuff but its about content which fits for the aim of the joint and making sure the flow is right.

Someone said something along the lines of flow can make up for poor content and i agree, but many things can make up for many things...a super dope beat can hide a weak flow..amazing content can hide an average flow...and thats why i voted both because at the end of the day, many things make a great song and content,flow, beat etc all make a great joint for me.

Eminem cant hid from the fact that encore was terrible regardless of his flow...but again, thats one one example, i could give many but the basic thing is...

Content and flow, both important imo...

Dope topic

Both but content is more important than flow to me because u can ride the hell out of a beat but say some bull shit.

Everything should be in balance though, that's for sure.

Yeah but if I HAD to choose I'd go with flow. Flow without any real lyrical content is listenable IMO (especially with a hot beat) but I can't stand it when it's the other way around.

I'd say it depends on my mood, what I wanna listen to at that moment.

But I gotta choose content, cause that's the most important about music for me.

Word.

nah lol @ you for saying that  :laugh:
Game is trying to sound like a lot of people; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't  ;)
but he doesn't have his own flow if you know what i mean.

I know what you mean, but you're not right, he sounds like Cube on few tracks, or like Nas and Jigga, but not everytime

who's flow is copying on West Really, California Soul, One Night...?
