    Right, but that's a different flow.


    Flow is the way a person delivers his/her lyrics.

    You know who has a great flow? Eminem.

    You know who has terrible lyrics? Eminem.

    Just to prove your point wrong, Doomsday.

    I think I could make lyrics bad to the point that NO ONE could "flow" with them...

    infact I am sure I could...

    I understand that an artist can flow with any given lyrics, but I don't agree that they are completely independent of each other...I think the lyrics themselves can flow together...

    I stated earlier this was turning into a semantical debate...not even Nas could flow with lyrics that don't rhyme...



    I didn't mean for this thread to get into this...when I created this thread I ment both of those when I said "lyricist"...

    I am not a fan of Em but I think that one is VERY debatable...

    so someone could flow great regardless of the lyrics?...they could be nonsensical words that don't even rhyme, but sense they are independent of each other it doesn't matter?

    His old stuff? Great lyrics.

    His new stuff? terrible.

    "Get off your grizzly, *****. Why would I buy you a gay *** teddy bear, ***** you're already bi-polar!"

    "My potatoes baked homie, stay back if the stakes are high"

    "**** the world, feed it beans. It's gassed up!"

    I understand what you're saying now though. But flow and lyrics are pretty different.

    Someone's lyrics don't have to be great in order for the person to have good flow, and Buckwheat already pointed out Eminem as an example.

    Your logic is flawed. Again, flow is the way you present the lyrics. Does flow depend on lyrics? Yes, to a certain extent. However, it's still possible to have good flow with the lyrics making little to no sense.

    Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQeuG3QoeFA

    Wax's flow is sick but IDK wtf he's talking about half the time.

    the logic that lyrics and flow go hand and hand is not a flawed one, it is common sense...

    can someone with bad lyrics flow good?...sure

    that doesn't mean siht though in terms of what I am saying...


    this entire argument in general is meaningless to the point I was making with this thread...maybe I should have just said "rapper" for you that can't see past what I ment...he has great lyrics and delivers them well...better than anyone else IMO...at least the others I am familiar with...

    Ok well then back to the original topic...Gibbs is good, but he's nowhere close to being the best....

    You obviously aren't familiar with many good rappers then.


    Props to Mane for the sig.
