They're also completely independent, with no help or desire to have/be feature w***** when it comest to their music. That's why I respect them.
With that said, I can't f*** with some of their s***. Tyler makes dope beats, has his moments, Frank Ocean is a genius and by far the stand-out, and Earl is lyrical.
Aside from those three, they kinda suck, I aint' gonna lie. They know how to market the s*** out of their image though, as well as appeal to the masses, i'll give them that. But on some real s***, they're kind of blatantly copying Eminem with some of these music vid themes, and don't seem to have a message like he did behind all the madness.. Almost like shock value rather than higher message. Which i don't f*** with
keep in mind at one point i was a big gunit fan, otherwise i wouldn't be here. i don't listen to all weird rappers tho. tech n9ne weird as fuc, but i don't mess with him. cats like MF DOOM, Quasimoto, Murs, Necro, i can get with.
