I hear often rappers claim that other rappers got to be original. So I wonder what originality is? According to me originality is that rappers dare to cross borders and add something extra to their lyrical content. What I mean by crossing borders is actually that they are not sticking to the traditional frame of mind only rap about macking honeys and making money. They got to come up with revolutionary ideas to set trend and contribute to the hip hop culture with those ideas.
It is not only up to rappers to be original, it is also up to producers. Everybody involved in the hip hop culture must be aware of that we got to improve the positive image and promote positivity by supporting the creative and the most original artists.
Artists like RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan is the best example of this original kind of rappers/producers I mean. He influenced lot of producers to be original and come up with dope sounds.
