This Kid’s MC Name Should Be “Young Lil Honky” [VIDEO]
Yeah he can flow quick, but he has the same nonsense lyrics that have plagued white rappers since the Beastie Boys
That’s not to say black rappers don’t have meaningless lyrics. But black rappers with meaningless lyrics make up for it with their persona on the mic. We don’t care what 50 Cent’s saying most of the time because he treats his voice like just another instrument on the track. On his good days, Eminem will do that too.
