I have a close friend that flows, very talented young man. Full of charisma and soul. You guys are gonna love him. He goes by the name of Cracka Jack, white boy, very lyrical and poetic. I'm going to put some links down here and a video straight from our YouTube channel. Check some of the stuff we have on there. CD is out. If you want more information

sorry i was away on vacation If you want to buy the Cd or want to hear more stuff, email us. Yeah he's improving a lot. I heard some of the most awsome freestyles. and i do mean a Real Freestyle NOT like what you hear on a battle this days were they just talk about each other with the crown reacting to punch lines. This kid is the truth.
Most people think anything from the early 2000's and 90's was real hip hop. While most think today all you need is a hot hook and beat to have a hit.
How can 'most' have two conflicting ideas? o_o
To me, there is no such thing as real hip hop and fake hip hop. Only what appeals to you and what doesn't. Granted, I have certain opinions of some rappers and think they have no lyrical talent but i still acknowledge that they rap the way that pleases them and their fans. Lyrical wordplay isn't for everyone and that's cool. Lil Wayne isn't the most lyrical rapper but he has a way with metaphors and flow, rapping near effortlessly over some beats. His similes and punchlines are quite good, but he's not the best story-teller. Kendrick Lamar flows like he's from the 90s, but isn't generally appealing to the younger crowd. Waka Flocka has no lyrical talent, but he has a hand for radio success as well as underground success. It just goes to show that every style is hip-hop is acceptable. =/
The thing is that back then people talked about real situations that people could relate too. Yeah there some rappers today that rap about smoking weed and the **** load of money they have but most people don't have access or have that luxury this rappers have. It just doesn't appeal to me. It may sound real to them, but what about lyrical content as well as poetic structure. For example Tribe call quest, one of my favorite hip hop groups to ever touch the mic with such poetic art that also could influence the cold minded. Why would I want to hear multiple songs about how much weed you consume and how much money you have. This one guy I met at a local show pointed out that people now and days don't want to hear about the struggle no more. They'll rather want to hear about someone else success and the lively sound they produce such as Maybach Music. I rather go underground and listen to the real stuff but like you said, it's just matter of opinion and appeal.
