[quote]Here's a verse:
Well now you're forced to listen to the teacher and the lesson
Class is in session so you can stop guessin
If this is a tape or a written down memo
See I am a professional, this is not a demo
In fact call it a lecture, a visual picture
Sort of a poetic and rhythm-like mixture
Listen, I'm not dissin but there's somethin that you're missin
Maybe you should touch reality, stop wishin
For beats with plenty bass and lyrics said in haste
If this meaning doesn't manifest put it to rest
I am a poet, you try to show it, yet blow it
It takes concentration for fresh communication
Observation, that is to see without speaking
Take off your coat, take notes, I am teachin
a class, or rather school, cause you need schooling
I am not a king or queen, I'm not ruling
This is an introduction to poetry
A small dedication to those that might know of me
They might know of you and maybe your gang
But one thing's for sure, neither one of y'all can hang
Cause yo I'm like a arrow, and Scott is the crossbow
Say something now ... thought so
You seem to be the type that only understand
The annihilation and destruction of the next man
That's not poetry, that is insanity
It's simply fantasy far from reality
Poetry is the language of imagination
Poetry is a form of positive creation
Difficult, isn't it? The point? You're missin it
Your face is in front of my hand so I'm dissin it
Yo just let me revel and bask in the fact that I got everyone kissin my ass
Chris Kirkpatrick you can get your ass kicked worse then them little Limp Biscuit bastards and Moby you can get stomped by Obie you 36 yr old bald headed stale homie you dont know me youre too old its over nobody listens to techno!
That is weak. Since rap is
poetry, that is weak poetry. Plus, you spelled Limp Bizkit wrong.
It is conclusive: Eminem is sugar-coated crap. He probably doesn't write much of the lyrics anymore, and he probably thinks MIDI is some new slang word for a drug.
Later maybe I'll post examples of real
rap. Notorious BIG, Bone Thugs, Wycelf Jean and the Fugees etc. are way better. Cuss, do you know what I'm talking about?
TigerWoods99, you usually know what you're talking about, but although Eminem is catchy, so are the Backstreet Boys. For some serious
rap or even just fun beats, Notorious BIG, Bone Thugs, Moby, or many others, are better, IMHO.
