do u mind if i intervene a bit?
i've been pretty quiet in the subject and haven't closed it since there were a few mods in the topickeeping it from getting out of hand (jetson and amen) but i feel like i need to jump in and make some sense of both sides of the argument in words that aren't trashing or shit talking
for people trashing jetman
so what if u think he sucks. just let him be. if he's making music for fun it doesn't mean he has to be good at it. and so he thinks he's good. big deal. i play softball for my company team and i'm a good batter (i'm batting .850 for the season) but a weak fielder (2 errors in 4 games, i admit it) so overall i'm not that good but i still enjoy it and i'm not horrible i am the leading hitter on the team but get stuck in LF all the time where people rarely hit the ball after a bad streak at SS) but yet i'm really good at b-ball and there are people taht play and think there good but they suck and they give this i'm off today excuse shit when there off everyday and refuse to admit they suck. he's 15 wheter u think he's good or not who cares let him have fun. is it really hurting or bothering u that u think he sucks and is making music? there are alot of crappy people making music. just ignore it
and for jetman
look i'm going to be honost. your words aren't that bad. there also not good and very simplistic but i've seen way worse. i woudln't call them shit but there not as great as u think tehy are. alot of people are bashing u cause u think your tupac or snoop and there mulitplatnum artisits. tupac is the GOAT and even great rappers like jay z who try to be like pac get ripped on cause there not on his level. comparing yourself to tupac is like playing RB and comparing yourself to barry sanders. its an insult and i think u should drop it. every young aspiring rapper wants to be tupac but none of them ever will be. and you'll wind up looking dumb for it. also nobody is saying u ahven't had sruggles cause your white and from the suburbs. everyone has struggles. life isn't easy or meant to be that way. even rich epople have struggles. but your not facing struggles as bad as you make it sound. i've faced quite a few struggles but nowhere as bad as tupac or some of these other people your trying to imitate. u need to be like amen said and be true to yourself. i know the cool thing is to rap about struggles and violence but i'm willing to be you've never even held a real gun yet you talk about shooting people and such and how your a big dog but i doubt your running shit in the streets or seeling millions of record to be called a big dog. its stuff like that that makes people jump on you. also no offense. i'm not trying to shit on you like i said your words aren't half bad although they are simplistic and nothing special, your rapping skills are just horrible. u give an excuse of reading off paper but if you took your music seriously you'd memorize it 1st then record it so it was smooth. and u talk about spiiting of the top of your brian but your readin that off paper? that doens't make sense. also u show no breath control, your have no flow, your never on beat, and you just don't have the voice for it. poeple like fabolous and jadakiss and jayy z have excellent flo, people like canibus have good flow, great breah control and excellent lyrics. plus they all have the voice for it. your trying to have a snoop like laid back sound but you don't have the vocie or breath control or other things listed. look i'm good at b-ball but i know i can never go pro. why? cause i'm 5-4. know your limitations! i will never ever dunk a basketball unless its on a fisher price net lol and i can accept that. it doens't mean i can't enjoy the game it just means i'll never be that good. you have to realize u can do it for fun but it doens't mean your good at it. you have to accpet that you just don't have the ability. maybe you should take some audio classes in high school and maybe some poetry classes to increase your skill. you could also take signing lessons to increas your voice and breath control (if u take your music seriously) and maybe you'll be able to put together somehitng that sounds good. but your not a natural at it. u have the tools 9a mic, paper, pen etc.) but it doens't make u tupac. i have a saying about things like this. i always say you can give a guy a bat and ball and a glove but it doens't make him barry bonds.
