Rap songs with wack beats are worthless, but what about weak rappers wasting superior tracks? Most people mention the first Group Home album in this category, but how can you be mad at a boxer who threatens to hit your moms in the head with a metal pipe? Not I. For me, it’s a little less obvious:
Real Live – The Turnaround
K-Def really delivered some cinematic masterpieces here, but Larry-O never lifted above mediocre in terms of his vocals.
Smif ‘N Wessun – Dah Shinin’
Tek and Steele aren’t wack by any stretch of the imagination, but I can’t help but wonder just how incredible this album would have been if some top shelf MC’s had been given these superior tracks.
Lords of the Underground – Here Come The Lords
Yes, I’m a LOTUG hater for life. Never apologize.
Souls of Mischief – 93′ Till Infinity
I have the instrumental album of this. It’s a lot more enjoyable without those four nerds rapping on it. No shots.
Pharcyde – Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde
The rapping on this was funny the first time around. Trying to listen to this now makes me want to stick my face in a bucket of bleach.
Onyx – Bacdafucup
When Shout Rap Goes Wrong.
What have I missed?
