    I feel like 3-4 songs are better than anything on so hard, but the rest are worse. Those 3-4 are amazing to me, though.

    When I first listened to PR I thought the same immediately but it's growing on me fast.

    i don't think anything on professional rapper touches jewish flow or cypher. and i would argue ham, ex bf, white due, all k the rest is just as good or better

    i like pro rapper, just expected it to be better

    With the exception of white dude, none of those are even what I'd call best flows on so hard. Guess it just shows how many rhymes this dude has. I think the best are beatin on ma, attached at the hip, so high, white dude, famous dude, staying in

    This (partial) verse from Professional Rapper is a big reason why I think he's awesome. I know he's got really good flow and can go hard, but I prefer originality which is seen in both albums. Most of his songs sound nothing like mainstream rap as far as how he puts his lyrics together.

    "Nah, that’s my niche!
    Don’t get offended by this, but that’s the market y’all missed
    That’s the target I’ll hit

    And that’s the heart of my pitch
    I wanna do this whole thing different
    "

    If he stays true to this then I'll buy all his stuff

    I don't know but I can imagine he gets a lot of Lonely Island comparisons. Like at first glance, that's what a few dudes have asked when I told them about LD.

    The one thing I like is he's making comedy rap, but not like disrespecting or parodying the art of rap.

    Is he Eminem? NO. But he has a good ability to flow and be clever and his rhymes aren't bad.

    I think the best part of Dicky is how self-aware he is. I saw him live a few weeks ago and you can just tell he knows EXACTLY what he is and what hes doing. He has a great time and puts on a great show.

    If LD is just "not bad" I'd be curious to see who you put in the greatness category? LD is in the absolute top tier lyrically IMO

    Depends, I'm admittedly a huge fan of the guys who can rhyme multiple syllables and bend words and just rap their asses off. Guys like: Eminem, Tech N9ne, Big L.

    So when I'm saying he's not bad I'm saying in terms of just strictly making words rhyme, scheme wise.

    His flow and creativity/cleverness outweigh his ability to straight up make words rhyme. That's what I mean. I do think sometimes he is too Drake influenced flow-wise, but the flow and ability to tell stories and be creative are where I like PR.

    Again, I'm not saying he's Soulja Boy when it comes to rhymes, but I don't think he's a top notch rapper in the sense of what I explained above.

    Also, I guess I'll say he shows the ability to do this, but then on some jams when he's just saying like "muh fucka" multiple rhymes

    The best part about it is that it immediately follows an interlude of Hannibal Burress talking about rappers not having a new perspective on having money.

    I was playing basketball last week and two dudes were arguing over a foul. One of them said "I dont deal in hypotheticals"

    I said "like da war?"

    Got nothing back but weird looks. Was so disappointed.


    Also, our boy is doing an AMA on reddit right meow.

    yea, I saw that earlier, it's a really good AMA not some extended press junket bullshit with typical celeb answers. dude stays very real and that alone is probably going to keep him going in the business.

    I read part of it. What was that part about being banned from some sub reddit? I dont get how reddit really works, but seemed like theres a big group that hates him or something?

    They don't like his act. Dicky has done previous AMA's, and they accused him of vote manipulation, which is a big thing on reddit. Was warned and it continued. The mods of HHH banned all content of his and believe he's worthless to the community. The mod also explicitly stated in the current AMA thread that it wasn't LD, but his fans

    "One thing I’ll add - and this goes to show my complete lack of familiarity with the platform at the time, was I posted the initial ex boyfriend reddit link to my personal facebook account, saying “look guys, it’s climbing reddit, go upvote” or something, not at all thinking it was a remotely frowned upon action. It seemed like a completely logical thing to do at the time. Now, I hear that type of thing is frowned upon, so I haven’t done it since - and once again, I seriously doubt that was the “gaming” that would get someone banned from a subreddit." - David

    I just got to that part. what happened is a subreddit(the name for the various forums of reddit) called HipHopHeads banned discussion of him. the mods(anyone can found a subreddit and then you appoint mods as such, the subreddits are basically untouchable by overall reddit admins unless they break TOS which means powertripping douchebags gravitate towards this stuff since they can't be touched) accused him of vote mongering(upvoting is supposed to be a natural process on the site, you're not meant to link the stuff on social media and ask for upvotes) and banned him and discussion of his music.

    here's the HHH founder talking about it in his AMA. he gets downvoted to fuck and back for it.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/3hlu9f/im_lil_dicky_i_just_released_my_album/cu8gp44

    here's a thread where they discuss him in the reddit. lot of rage about him because they think he's all satire and isn't a part of hiphop culture because he can't be(middle class, white).

    https://www.reddit.com/r/hiphophead...is_calling_out_lil_dicky_for_racially/cqf3n2k

    all you're seeing is a bunch of autistic crybabies who take rap too seriously being mad at someone who doesn't take rap as seriously as they do. also fair to point out reddit is white male aged 18-35 central which means like 90% of that community is as white as driven snow and at best has been co-opting hip hop culture, not living it.

    they honestly seem to care more about his cred than the actual hip hop community does given his recent success and collabs.

    Accidentally fell into the rabbit hole of reading about that sub reddit banning lil dicky videos.

    Their evidence of vote manipulation was 30 new "lil dicky focused" accounts created the day the boyfriend video was posted. As if the thousands of people discovering the video on YouTube that day, it was impossible that 30 fans could have created reddit accounts just to vote for him.

    Reddit is a shithole full of people of all sex, race ect that take themselves and the site far too serious.

    Also, anyone that generally believes Dave is going to change the rap scene is not smart, himself included. Take his music for what it is and enjoy or hate it. The guy has talent and produces quality content, black or not, and is just as apart of hip hop is everyone else.

    The more I listen to the album, the more I really like Molly. The flow is really good and his part of the chorus, with nothing but the sound effects and a faint bass line, the kind of echo effect they use on his voice, it really lands hard.
