Tell 'em why you mad, son! Unkut rails on why Nicki Minaj is a terrible rapper, how Gorilla Zoe is an example of premature rap ejaculation and why Wiz Khalifa will never get big, no matter how many times he changes his style.

He rails on that Nicki Minaj is a terrible rapper; he doesn't rail on why Nicki Minaj is a terrible rapper.

But on the whole, some fun bomb-throwing. The kinda thing that gives very, "Oh yeah!" and "WHAT!" reactions—the stuff you agree with feels like you were right all along and the stuff you disagree with feels like it's from another planet.

Talk about using it to drum up hype and get your name around, but there’s no doubt about it: free music is synonymous with worthless music. It usually holds no value, and with no investment from the listener it normally forms no lasting bond.

this dude kinda dumb imo

Your favorite rapper sucks?

Wait I'm confused. Am I, as a hip hop fan, ruining everything by supporting the wackness or by not buying enough music (from Clipse)?

So Jay-Z is not good at detecting talent because, although he broke Kanye, he didn't do it soon enough? OK.

You know, all of these rappers are people and it's kinda mean to write that someone will never get big or be successful. Especially mean to say about rappers who aren't that popular yet and have google alerts on their names.

I found the list a bit weak, but the interviews on that site are awesome. This one with T-Ray is my favorite so far.

I really have no idea who the hell the dude was talking about throughout that piece (save for the brand names, of course.) But, damn, that was entertaining spleen-venting.

I am reminded strongly of the episode of Flight of the Conchords where the guys sing a song about famous rappers who suck in an empty library, and then form a gang to protect them from the expected retribution of easy e and snoop dogg...

Hov is not good at detecting talent because (just one example) he did more to promote Memph Bleek than he did Beans (take that, Google Alerts).

I don't like Jay-Z. To me he seems to have no sense of rythem and frequently falls off of the beat of the song. Maybe to him it's style, or maybe he plays it as style, but I don't like it.

I actually like B.O.B's current single, to the point where I bought it off his website for the soul reason of supporting him. (Especially since the local "hip-hop" station here plays it so much that I can hear it on the radio anytime I want.)

Minaj sucks, yet I can't help but want to run away with her. God damn you half-Trinidadian girls, do it to me every time.

I'm pretty sure the colloquial term is "Lil Jon".

Jay-Z has used Rocafella as a wack factory, putting out almost as much crap as No Limit has. And part of the soul of rapping is battling—if you can't take some blogger saying that you're never going to be big or successful, you're going to start bawling onstage the next time someone rips on your rhymes.

Wack Factory is the name of my indie label.
