I love DJ Quik, but Kurupt is still the most talentless mainstream rapper around. Just listen to him on this tune:

Cloud nine
She got two sides like Gemini
I'm high
Living my life, I'm hella high
I'm fine
And it's time
See I'm nothing but a pool[???], I'm cool, I'm coolin'
Doin', whenever I wanna be doin'
You and me
Me and you
And my big homie DJ Quik

And so on... I know it's supposed to be a party tune and not a display of rapping skills, but still, is that all he could come up with?!

kurupt tends to go on autopilot a lot but calling him untalented is str8 crazy! esp early on he used to drop some fucking amazing verses, at his peak i think he was a great bridge between west coast gangsta and complex lyrical east coast style, like a more gully ras kass or something

u know, even though i think i subconsciously only made this thread in the first place to feel the self-lacerating pain of ilm douches getting happy/getting it all wrong (curmudgeon obv STRAIGHT AWAY gettin his dj/rupture global village mode on lol ouch) this is still a fucking lame effort on yalls part!! i mean yeah fine racionate kurupt's position in the rap discourse landscape all you want if it beats back tuomas' truly spectacular challops ("bra-zilliant atmosphere, without a brassiere" i see no problem here dude) but i just thought it would appeal more to not-just-the-usual folks along some universal silly timbo/bubba sparxx 03 throwback glorious mess lines.

song is still dope to me even after writing all that, so it really must be good - get on boarddddd

kinda think the thing i love most about this is quik in the middle of the westcoast/morroco storm-in-a-teacup seeing fit to go vaguely whodini horrorcore throughout. zombies! vampires! tales from the crypt! "the voice of great antiquity"! so excellent.

"9xs outta 10" has this mean swagger that really only comes when the only thing you have to fall back on is that you know that you are dope as fuck - you know you aren't going to sell, you know critics aren't going to give a fuck, you know nobody is going to care about the video so you don't do shit but just stand there and rap with your boys and yet it's so singular, so confident, so hard, so nasty, like they can't be bothered to care about the viewer and yet it's such a vibrantly grimy video and song - i'm drunk but shit

It's not an all-time classic or anything but solid 7/10. I've gotten some burn from it (no pun). Then again I'm a total sucker for big drum vs small production nu-west shit. And Problem holds his own just fine. Love the hook tho.
