Whenever Cole tries to rap on a song of this type he sounds like one of those lame dudes you went to high school with that tried real hard to be down. Stay in your lane homie.
J.Cole is so much better than this i hope he got a nice check to be a part of this foolishness
Hate this. Cole always rapping bout fake gangsta's and like nigga you ain't sold shit. But he always cool with Ricky William. Cole better than this bullshit.
cole know the business. now let me see yo fuckin diamonds! ...niggaz mad tho lol.
Cole ain't trying to be anything...he's making music, you dummies. every song he makes can't be like 'Can I live' or 'I Get Up'. it ain't like he's talkin about shootin niggas and gangbangin. yall some simple minded folk. always over analyzing shit like yall are credible.
I fuck with Cole but not the Arab or policeman
TRASH, and Cole's weakass verse with the over usage of the word nigga like always so they kept muting the shit. Smh, when you get a dope beat dont just ruin the damn vibe if you know they gonna mute the shit on the video. Plus the song is just wack, they got together and was like wtf we gon talk about? Oh I know diamonds, yeah thats something new. FOH
^ lmao oooo the hate is strong for young frenchie. HAAANNN!
Nah im just not one of you stans that pretend some shit is good when in the back of your mind you know its wack. As for French I think at this point he has a one hit song every 20 song average. Trash and even though they praising the brand that was built by the Goat of this hip hop shit its still not dope.
one hOt song...
Stop hatin'!! Cole's verse is fresh! And the rest.. ok, I can't defend 'em...
the nigga on had ny minute, shot caller, pop that, ocho cinco. and those just the songs YOU know. stop hatin and get on that coke wave. its good for hiphop.
^"get on that coke wave? its good for hiphop." lolz im speechless
@So you name 3 songs and supposed to think he making dope shit? Yeah in the last couple YEARS outta his whole career thus far he got two songs, Shot Caller, and Pop that. So what, thats why he's dope or something? He been out longer then Drake, 2 Chainz, Future, Ace Hood etc... but yet they all made more dope songs then him fool. @Jordan, I count about two dope bars outta 16 in the basic ass weak abcish type bullshit verse.
^ yeah. yall nerds had hiphop long enough. and yall dont know what to do with it. sent us into a damn depression and everything smh.
marty, first off. the nigga is like 28 or someshit. he aint 40 like 2 chainz. ace hood? next. now mr. started from the bottom. the nigga rode lil waynes wave while he was on fire. cant tell me nothing. cuz i still remember replacement girl with trey songz lol.
but for real tho, frenchie got bangers. and yall cant hate all you want, but aint no rapper-producer duo out now fuckin wit french/harry fraud. even harry himself said he frenchie his favorite artist to work with. hence why frenchie got the best harry beats. sorry currency and company.
Ya'll nerds had hip hop long enough? Actually the type of lyrical driven hip hop your referring to is never played and has almost no hold on hip hop at all. Most fans arent even aware of the nerds of hip hop that your talking about. The nerds have no play on Tv, radio or any other platform in hip hop other then the streets so the musical depression your talking was mostly cause by artists like French who make these type of records over and over as if they only have one mode as an artist.
Drake rode Waynes wave? Ok but with what? Songs that he recorded right? Ok then and are your sure you wanna talk as if Drake didnt just make dope music. Go check this fools stats ALREADY. He only been popping 4 years at this point and is already reaching levels that most artists never will. Now if you biggin up French but talking down on Drake thats ridiculous. And you talking about Harry Fraud beats? Man fuck a beat, show me some good songs. A nigga could have the greatest beats on the planet, that aint gonna make his music dope if he aint that dope himself.
name some niggaz who deserve to be on tv/radio. with actual songs that ppl would want to hear on the radio. dont nobody want hear joey badass or whoever. even kendrick couldnt convince the world to rock to yall. yall aint got no rhythm. no flow. yall dont know what sounds good. just what yall think sounds good. lol truth hurts.
as far as french. just hit datpiff and do some hw. i dont even think you need to sign up to get em. they should be instant dl by now lol.
and did this nigga just say fuck a beat? nigga sit down. thats how you nerds think. "ahh dont worry about the beat. my lyrics are good enough." nigga no. better get some ears for this shit and stop crying when nobody wanna hear yo boof ass music.
as far as drake, just a product of hiphopsince1977 and noah 40. i remember i saw a documentary footage of noah harmonizing a song they were working and that moment then i knew drake dont do shit but he always did. act. his story aint even relatable nor entertaining.
but frenchie? the gangster life has been highly entertaining since like the 50s. thats how hiphop peaked. see but daddy jay-z, nas, biggie, tupac, wu-tang, the diplomats, cash money, no limit. the struggle and celebration will never get old. and frenchie, actually started from the bottom. pun intended.
Ok man whatever but its Dj's out there that will have a club going crazy off some dope shit that you would call the nerds of hip hop. Its all in how the records are delivered and those nerds got some of those records and yes they do know how to ride the rhythm correctly, smh. I dont know exactly who your referring too with the whole nerds shit but im sure I could name songs that would fit a radio format cause it's not really as hard as you think it is. Its easy to say a record wont work without even playing it first. Now you said go dattpiff this niggas 20 mixtapes but yet you only name about four dope songs from him. And yes I said fuck a beat cause a beat is only half a song so of course you need dope vocals fool.
nah the beat is more important than the lryics. shit aint 50/50. dont care what yall say. and i named 4 songs i know you heard. go get coke boyz 1,2,3, and mac & cheese 2 & 3 and you'll probley become a fan. but the proof is there. just gotta open your ears.
Since you named Joey Bada$$, my response would be if Waves is a good enough song for the Jimmy Fallon show then he might deserve a spin on radio but since I dont know of many club songs from him then I'll say cool you can have that point. Joey Bada$$ is not a radio type nigga, ok I can give you that. One point for you but you said nerds so Idk who else your talking about and honestly even Bada$$ doesn't really come off as being a nerd to me but anyway...
You say the beat is more important then the lyrics? I dont agree but I wont even prove the point that song writing is just as important. Lets say its all about the beats then, is French known to be some kinda master beat selector or something? NO he's not and their is plenty of other artists with beats better then him and have more club records and better street records then him.
Lastly since were talking about popular songs that people wanna hear (club, radio tv) and since you say Drake is not relatable and how he's just not entertaining? Well in just a short period of time Drake has thee most number one hit records in hip hop. In four years the nigga broke legendary records already so if French makes those kind of records better then Drake then you let me know when he gets close to what Drake has done in just a few years since Drake is so wack then.
French gotta better verse then Cole though.... LOL, out.
"is French known to be some kinda master beat selector or something?"
^ something like it lol. but nah for real. the nigga's beats do be on tho. cant say they dont. if you got a problem with his content, flow or lyrics, then thats debatable. but no debating his beats. ATLEAST give him that. the ignant nigga sampled florence and the machine!! lol come on now smh.
and frenchie can rap. i dont give af what yall say. yall either not listening or hating. yall mad cuz hes a new york rapper wit a down south flow. like jay-z aint slow up his flow. but if you need a list i could do that.
If French got some slick beats so what? The nigga got 20 mixtapes and just a few dope beats. Big Deal, you think his beats are gonna somehow beat out everybody else with dope beats for the rest of his career? I dont think so and that brings me back to my point the beats aint everything. What happens when you dont have a dope beat at the time? You still gotta make a dope song right? Ok then. Im sure there are plenty of times when Wiz Khalifa is in the lab and he's not feeling the beats but oh well he still gotta get busy and make something dope and imo he does those kind of songs better then French does. Furthermore I personally dont think French's beats are that dope. I think if you listen to 20 of his songs only about two or three will be that dope. End of story. Now back to Joey Bada$$ and his song Waves, now that I think about it, that song reminds me of What They Do by The Roots and that song did pretty well so if Joey stays on the path he's on I think he'll be good. Back to French, you keep talking about a sample too, homie samples are common in hip hop. Its not a ground breaking concept my dude, ts really no big deal. If he sampled Florence and the Machine, so what? Samples happen all the time. Then you bring up Jayz and his slow flow, fool what does that have to do with anything? I think Jayz flows are working out for him wouldn't you agree? Wasn't Jayz out ten plus years before French Montana? Ok then
I REALLY wanna see what Marty looks like in real life (pause) to make fun of either his weight, acne, or his social anxiety because he obviously has no fuckin social life since he practically lives on this site lol
There were rappers using a slow flow from all over the map in hip hop already. It aint just a south thing or a Jayz thing at all. Too Short had a slow flow years before Jayz. Back to French though, his beats wont carry him his whole career cause even his homie Ross had a diverse selection of beats before he just ran with the BMF style for years and between them two even Ross picks better beats then Frenchl.
@ytt, Your gay. FOH
^I REALLY wanna see what Marty looks like in real life (pause) to make fun of either his weight, acne, or his social anxiety because he obviously has no fuckin social life since he practically lives on this site lol
anybody that cant comfortably admit that a beat makes up at LEAST about 60%-70% doesnt know wtf they're talking about, as for this song? meh, the only think even slightly commendable is the cole verse
anybody that cant comfortably admit that a beat makes up at LEAST about 60%-70% of a successful record doesnt know wtf they’re talking about, as for this song? meh, the only think even slightly commendable is the cole verse
Beats make up 50% of a song or less. Song writing will always be over beats. Why? because beats lose their impact over time. Once a new style of beat comes into play then that beat will find it harder to get played. Also two different artists with the same beat produce way different product regardless of how dope the beat is. One will make some shit thats meh, the other could make some fire with that same beat. The words however often the hook is the most memorable part of the song (hooks are song lyrics) and also songs have titles (which are also most times song lyrics). When people bring up the song they like they remember it by the title. Also words and style can be associated with the artist and instant familiarity by voice or style. Beats cannot always do that. Why? Because the same style of beats get passed around in one time span that they all start sounding the same. It's easy to recall a beat the same week or month it came out but a year from then you'll probably forget the song if the words were trash. There were a thousands beats that came out last year, how many do you really remember? When you do recall songs that you like, its often the artist or the title of the song or the hook that you recall. NOT just the beat. Beat styles get old, good song writing does not. How many hip hop artist have ten plus year careers just based on beats? 0%
Cole's verse on this song will also be forgotten by this time next week. Its no "Last name Ever, first name Greatest..." type of shit.
you know not every song is not supposed super fucking lyrical but when comes to these club songs at least try to fucking rap all these dudes were trash. i mean when nas, jay-z, pac, big when they made club songs they fucking tried to write good material and it payed off. but when these dudes write shit its like they're getting awarded to be fucking wack. just goes to show society doesn't care about content unless the song has good beat. fucking disgraceful
^not caring about content in the club isn't disgraceful to me...its normal lol...clubs are for having a good time, not thinking...and this is coming from a nas/jay z fan....and another thing, I think this is french'es idea of wrong good material lol ain't like he dumbing down for the clubs, all his songs are dumbed down
People always say that the club songs aint to be used for thinking and I get that but the club songs are getting played on all the platforms of hip hop now, not just in the clubs. So people are not thinking at all period. Now if people wanna write stupid songs thats cool but hip hop is not like pop music and R&B. Hip hop songs be having almost 60 bars a song. Now outta three 16 bar verses and a 8 bar hook, if you cant find a way to say anything about anything with all them words then hip hop needs a new form of club music. Anyway earlier I said that song writing will always be over the beat and thats honestly what I think but I realize that most times it is a 50/50 type of thing between the beats and the lyrics but I just had to make that point about how much writing goes into a hip hop song. You listening to a hundred words in one song but yet the general opinion is that club songs (which is also now Tv, radio, car, house parties, etc) aint supposed to be for thinking. I get it but until that concept is over in hip hop you can forget about much musical progression and look forward to more songs like this in the future.
and clubs songs all over the internet too... #Thinking is ok
"ain’t like he dumbing down for the clubs, all his songs are dumbed down"
^ its not dumbing down. its keeping it simple. you got a million "complex" rappers going on and on about nothing. shit not even flowing. cant dance. nothing. just sit there, and somehow feel educated doing so lol. music is music. its a tool for relaxing, having fun and sharing stories. yall nerds think so much yall got it twisted. lesson of the day, keep things simple. good day to all.
oh yeah, beat matters more than lyrics. you can get the feel and emotion and point of the song thru the damn instrumental. they lyrics are really not mandatory.
and thats why producers make all the money and get none of the credit. cuz they actually PRODUCE the song. not just rap on it. see the difference? or no.
all i hear is keep it simple but these niggas are below simple, how can anyone classified this shit as club song? this song is fucking horrible. ya'll niggas need to wake the fuck up and stop making excuses when people say some shit is wack. you faggots are the reason why shit like this wack french song get created in the first place. because they dumb niggas will blindly follow the shit like sheep. an the beat is trash to fuck outta here. bunch of blind niggas.
^Thank you @frylock. well said. these lil fuckboys on this site commenting on dumb shit that makes no sense. 90's Hip Hop > Hip hop now. Lil wayne is older than me and I feel this way.
^^^^^^I REALLY wanna see what Marty looks like in real life (pause) to make fun of either his weight, acne, or his social anxiety because he obviously has no fuckin social life since he practically lives on this site lol
@the realest, actually you got a million rappers that are simple. Its not that many rappers that are complex. Your talking about going on and on about nothing but thats the kind of music your cosigning. Who's says that a lyricist cant make music that flows right and music people cant dance too. Its been done before throughout all the eras of hip hop already. Kendrick just went platinum off a single about alcohol abuse and Drake just put out a single about starting from the bottom. I dont think their lyrics or message get in the way of the beat at all. Now you say lyrics aint even mandatory? Stop It man, they dont play instrumentals by themselves in hip hop. This aint house music fool so your beats over lyrics theory doesn't work. Yeah you can get a vibe and a emotion off a beat but you still need the artist to give it a point. You cant get "the point of a song" just off the instrumental so yes lyrics are mandatory for making hip hop music. @ytt Your gay
^^^^I REALLY wanna see what Marty looks like in real life (pause) to make fun of either his weight, acne, or his social anxiety because he obviously has no fuckin social life since he practically lives on this site lol
I honest to God wish that song writing mattered more than production, but thats in a perfect world which we don't live in, in the past at one point yea, lyrics mattered because the flow of lyrics flowed with the rhythm which tied the song together and way more people noticed that shit, in today's market that shit doesnt matter anymore, thats why these producers will be on a run for a minute because theyve come up with the hot sound of the moment, lex luger, A4AP trill wave shit, old school kanye, and now mike will made it is the dude, its just how it goes, end of story
urgh they look like bunch of clowns. Song is very bad too. Cole doesn't belong here , why did he do this?
