    Default "2Pac Wasn't Really Lyrical": French Montana


    Who were the emcees that inspired you to start rapping?

    I’d definitely say 2pac, Snoop, Wu-Tang Clan. I come that era, that was the era that I grew up on. I wasn’t really in the era of old, old-school – Cold Crush Brothers and Afrika Bambataa and all of that stuff, that wasn’t my era. I don’t listen to that old shit. No disrespect to them, they definitely helped build hip-hop, but it’s just like with basketball – I wasn’t around for Bob Cousy and Dr. Jay and all of them, of course they helped build the game but I was coming up around the time when Kobe won the dunking contest – the new generation.

    Why do you think Southern hip-hop fans connected with you in the way they have?

    I think the southern market connected with me because I kind of rap like I’m from down south. The way I rap, I don’t really focus on trying to get too lyrical anymore, because I think that anybody can be lyrical. All you gotta do is just read a dictionary and look for crazy words that you think people are going to like. How I judge a rapper is – Can you make me feel something? Can I feel like I went through what you went through? Can you give me goosebumps when I hear your music? That’s my thing. It’s not about how many syllables and synonyms you can say, or how you can write alphabetical backwards and it means sun versus the moon or shit like that. I mean, that’s cool and I’m going to think you’re clever, but I’m not going to relate to you. 2Pac wasn’t really lyrical, he just connected with people. He said some shit that you’ll just be like “wow.” And that’s how I judge my music.

    No Way

    I really disagree with him. Pac didnt have the lyricism of Rakim, or the flow of Biggie, but dammit he was really lyrical in his own right. I think no other rapper will be able to come close to how real he was or his particular style. Tupac was the most poetic emcee in Hip Hop. How is he not lyrical?

    2Pac is most inspirational but not most lyrical.

    Hes right but its a bit rich coming from someone such as french Montana lol. Hes one of the most wackest rhymers, lyricist period along the likes of wacka flocka, soldier boy, gucci mane and all those sorts of wack dudes.

    Pac wasnt a hardcore lyricist but for someone like french to say it its a joke lol, Pac is a lyrical genius compared to french:p.

    I think yall missed what French was saying here, French knows he is not lyrical he is just saying that you don't have to be super lyrical to be nice. If people connect with you that is enough. Pac was not as lyrical as his peers but people connect with him. Probably why he is more popular than canibus

    2pac has some real profound and deep lyrical content. First if was relevant secondly it was educated. So this shit written about him is really wrong right. What does somebody understand under the word "lyrical".To me it's deep meanings. And Literature was always like that, you say something but it's meant otherwise. Tupac Amaru Shakur was always talking metaphoricallyl, like the 100's of clues by faking his own death. So that guy talking bout 2pac so frankly is just a rookie. 2Pac was one of the greatest poets in the black community.How can't he be lyrical. I don't understand this.

    being lyrical doesnt mean using crazy words that most of us have never heard i.e canibus lol. it's just because this dude can't do that himself he's trying to kid you into thinking that you can feel his music lol.

    to clarify my point i copied the definition of lyrical online - this fool doesn't even know the meaning!

    lyr·i·cal (lr-kl)
    adj.
    1.
    a. Expressing deep personal emotion or observations: a dancer's lyrical performance; a lyrical passage in his autobiography.
    b. Highly enthusiastic; rhapsodic: gave a lyrical description of her experiences in the South Seas.
    2. Lyric.

    So when he is saying that 2pac is not lyrical, and is inferring that he is more on the expression of emotions, he's really saying that 2pac is lyrical lol
