Kendrick Lamar is an EAST COAST rapper
« on: October 27, 2012, 09:37:27 PM »
Just bumped Kendrick's album....

This is a good album from a good rapper, but this is NOT a West Coast album....

Kendrick Lamar is a monotone, cerebral, high-content, intellectual rapper..EAST COAST shit. This nigga should be rappin with motherfuckin Dead Prez or Nas one of them niggas.

West Coast rap is that ignorant, G-funk shit, gangsta shit: it's energetic, it's fun, it's about smoking weed, fuckin bitches, getting high, riding round, feelin good, etc. That ain't Kendrick's album.

Nigga sound more like he's from Brooklyn than Compton.

Mmm, could just as easily say he's more like a Southern rapper...
because of the slurred drawl, the half-singing stuff like Andre3K,
the fast rapping like Luda, Mystikal (also usually mid-western guys like Twista, Bone Thugs, Tech N9ne, Eminem, etc. do faster styles),
the slower beats, beats with drum machines/keyboards in them, lots of catchy choruses...

I'm not saying he IS more like a Southern rapper, I'm just saying you could argue
for it just as easily, I don't think he fits in one obvious box...

To me, typical East coast would have to have way more multi-syllable rhymes like Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, etc.
and have a way harder vocal style as well, like attacking the track, like Wu-Tang... Kendrick is way more chilled...

Also typical East coast guy would use a lot more sampled beats with hard sampled snares, boom-bap, Primo style stuff...
just a more "rugged" un-polished, raw sound overall is what's "normal" for East coast...

lol another close minded vision on what every artist from the west should sound. shit is sad.

it still amazes me that people still think in 2012 that music from a certain area should sound like this or that.

the content is a westcoast as it gets, just cause it's not gangsta doesn't mean it ain't westcoast. kendrick speaks about what he goes through, he ain't gonna try to conform to g-funk and gangsta lyrics because it's what made the west famous in the early 90's, jesus.

West Coast rappers and their fan base seem just as closed minded

No wonder the scene is on its knees. Kendrick at the very least is breathing new life into the tired genre

He doesn't rap the typical west coast content, but he's definitely rapping what a lot of west coast inner city kids have gone through as teenagers.

West Coast Rappers:

ROSCOE
KURUPT
PROBLEM
TERRACE MARTIN
DJ QUIK
E-40
SUGA FREE
WC
ICE CUBE

These people are all West Coast because they are all Niggas with Attitude. Game spitters.

Kendrick Lamar = nigga without attitude. Gameless.

I think it'd be better for the West if PROBLEM was getting shine the way Kendrick is....Problem makes real true west coast rap.

Contrast Kendrick and Problem and you see what I meant when I started this thread.

Most of the people hating on this album would change their mind in a heartbeat if Snoop Dogg called it dope.

For real, Kendrick gets more love in other forums than he does here. The West is on the rise, TDE, Tyga, Odd Future all popping lately, even if ain't the music you like.

hey every era has their people who hated that time period. shit in 95 jeru the damaja was speakin on hip hop being dead. and niggaz was hating on eazy-e real bad back in the day. i mean ive heard people talk bad about the golden age of hip hop in the late 80's. so im not suprised to find people who dislike certain rappers or eras. i'll be the first to say i'd be glad that kendrick lamar would be the face of this new generation. he has the style he has the POWER(cuz he has a crew) and he has a certain kind of deal with a huge recordlabel. oh and he keeps makin hit singles. so that helps.
