what are some classic pre-Migos-era* triplet-heavy rap verses over non-triplet beats?

*(and pre-Keef)

1. Diamond's verse on "Knuck If You Buck"

2. Chuck D's second verse on "Bring The Noise" (h/t and what for reminding me)

Iirc our conclusion was an example of hemiola was that part of originator 99 when jaz goes “The O-RI-GI-NA-TOR”

if ppl are concerned about misdirection maybe a mod can change the name to "classic rap triplets" or whatever

What’s the purpose of a thread built on a corny vox video anyway, as al tweeted recently the migos flow has already been relitigated more than the 2016 election

The migos are boring and their album sucks they don’t need more threads

I regret titling this thread "post your favorite Migos tracks itt, this is a thread about Migos and why Migos are good"

I think about Jaz-O's verse on The Originators 99 all the time, it's a masterpiece

three weeks pass...

Jay Z is hemiolaing all over the new Khaled single. The king of jacking styles knows what's going on. Score another point for D-40.

yeah he's def hemiosomthing on that shit

that song is a godawful mess
like khaled makes these mutated abominations that have no reason to exist other than to say "the jay z, future and beyonce brands are on this song"

future sounds like a mockery of himself
jay is just....god knows
beyonce is kinda okay when she raps but what the hell is that acapella thing she comes in on?

cue new york rap radio ppl saying OMG JAY Z WITH ANOTHER CLASSIC twitter

Jordan how would you describe the rhythm of this cadence? Where he puts the emphasis in certain parts of the bar?
