I think it is dangerous to be a MC. There are so many violence in the hip hop scene. You got to be careful what you say. Either you drops raps in a lyrical format with metaphors some people can interpret it in a different way. Some people take raps literally. In the past I could not care how negative the lyrics were, if the lyrics were flowing nice on the beat, then it was all right.
Now I am looking for more depth in a hip hop song. Hip hop is more than just entertainment. I think rappers can influence the masses for better or worse. I rather listen to rapper, who have some thing positive to contribute to the hip hop culture. I like the songs, which contains diss lyrics. That is all right, but got to be in balance with some mind elevating lyrics.
I rather listen to rapper, who are out to take the art of rapping to the next level artistically. These rappers lay the foundation for the next school of MCees to build further what the past generation of hip hop artist have begun. This way now school rappers can stimulate the next school to be creative and take the art of rapping beyond the boundaries. This way the hip hop culture will evolve as it has been evolving before.
