Hip hop CMV/unpopular opinion thread

I think the problem here is that a lot of people use his charges as a means of discrediting his art, as if they're interchangeable. Same for his fanbase too, which I find frustrating (although I'm not that big of a fan of him). Almost every time XXX is brought up, I see people reference his charges and the fact that a substantial part of his fanbase are white teenagers who are fans of anime, as if there is anything wrong with being white, a teenager, or a fan of anime. So what if a certain group of people like his music? I'm wlling to bet a lot of artists have their own special demographics - unless a fan came up to you and spit in your face, I find disregarding an artist just because of their fanbase is a little immature.

Also, Andrew isn't saying that you have to ignore the fact that XXX is a shitty person, I think he feels it's unfair that people have his wrongdoings and musical identity in the same place. You have the right to not listen an artist who happens to be a fucked up person, but what they do in real life and the character they portray in their music are not the same, no matter how "alike" they may seem.

Lupe Fiasco is boring and I don't understand how some people say he's one of the GOATs.

even though house of pain is an obvious cypress hill rip off, they're still good.

Take Me To Your Leader is an unfairly overlooked DOOM project
Indigoism is The Underachievers best work
Nas, Jay Z, Biggie and Tupac were actually trash overall
Ab Soul hasnt done anything worthwhile since LTM
