-> Rhythm section was decent. Not so much the lyrics.
-> Downer song, language, music is unchanging; it goes nowhere.
-> Again with the language!! Not a song I want my daughter to hear.
-> Instrumentation had a nice groove. Don't agree with his perception of events.
-> Too much wallowing in despair. I find the use of 'Ghetto Gospel' peculiar. Gospel means the Good News (of Jesus Christ). What good news is there about the ghetto?
-> I'll give credit for subject matter. Too much: "yeah", "uh-huh", "know what I'm sayin" and the like. Also a bit of cursing.
Hurt Me Soul -> I'll give credit for the subject matter, but I don't agree with his assessment on world events.
Game Theory -> Too much thug for me.
I've listened to all your links and a good portion of the names that were dropped by others in this thread. Yes, there are some songs that don't have cursing and a couple were OK, but overall there is still an issue with the language used.
The subject matter doesn't help either. This genre is made for a certain population. I don't believe that population is served well by listening to the messages presented in these songs. There's a primary current of victim hood that's presupposed in the genre. That leads to a string of life complaints but no solutions. Social conscientiousness songs are fine, but I prefer those that aren't downers.
