I'm a huge hip-hop fan, even made 3 albums myself. But I just can't get into these new rappers. This is the first track I've heard from Gambino and I'm not impressed. Guys nowadays don't have any flow. They just say things that rhyme and say "Yeah! Uh," right after. No new rappers have that Big Pun/Mos Def flow. Hell, most of them don't even speak a decipherable language. So yeah, it's an OK track. But nothing I'm too impressed with.

Bolded is pretty spot on. Didn't see this response till now.

What do you think of Joyner Lucas??

I only stumbled onto him last week after seeing a video on YT called "I'm not racist". I've since been consuming everything he's put out both original and remixes. I've yet to see a remix he's done that hasn't surpassed the original in every way. Not that these mumble rappers set a high bar, but if you have time, take a look and post your thoughts.
