Bow Wow ft. Lil Wayne – Sweat
Bow Wow’s first single off of, “Underrated,” features Lil Wayne and is called, “Sweat.” “Underrated,” drops December 6th.
Hot garbage in my opinion. He sounds like a cross between Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj on this track and it ain’t working. The sad thing is that Bow Wow is better than this (or at least I thought). Instead of calling his album “underrated”, he should change it to “underachiever”.
If we have to judge this by 2011 hiphop standards than this track is dope. It’s a better version of what’s out right now cuz at the end of the day music is just there for people to enjoy and party with.
The flow’s good, beat’s good, lyrics flow nice so what else could you ask for. People need to stop askin these rappers to perform miracles man foreal. This joints nice just enjoy it and let it be. fuck the hate imma ride to this
Another thing i wanna add is whatever people nowadays refer to as “real hiphop” or whatever else they refer to as “being respectable non sell out hiphop.” is actually not a realistic expectation.
I think this type of hiphop that we’re hearing these days is a broader and more honest representation of hiphop cuz hiphop all started as a party genre with sugarhill gang etc and if you look at other genres, it aint like rock n roll artist and rnb artists sing about their lives and get all serious with meaningfull non fun lyrics, other genres also make songs about nothing as long as the vibe is good. So there’s no reason for why rappers need to be scrutinized for making music that ppl can just party with and just vibe to.
The thing that got these fans to get such high expectations is rappers like Tupac and Big. Those guys did “non sell out/hardcore” hiphop but it came from the heart and we all know anything that’s true and authentic even will get ppls attention but it doesnt mean that that’s how hiphop is supposed to be cuz Pac n Big were like Mj or elvis they only come once in a life time, you can’t expect every rapper to do it like them.
I say the Hiphop that we’re hearing nowadays with Young Money, MAbach music, Jcole , fabolous etc is actually pretty dope. It’s good music that ppl can party with and enjoy and it takes it back to the essense of how it began and it all began as music that ppl could enjoy, and just have a good time with while rhyming words together and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Not good at all!!!
