    i was actually thinking about this when wiping up after my afternoon wank and i do agree but not wholeheartly, altho it is more than lyrics, if u have quoteables it does help to an extent, if it was jus a good song peeps would have 2 do listen 2 it to generate heat, and expensive or a long process (especially for me who doesnt have downloading programs) so at the end of the day i wouldnt be arsed, but with a quoteable, u have something to go on. maybe at the end of the day thats nothing to do with enjoying the music, but if someone spits a hot line it does add to the overall enjoyment of the track no matter what the rest sounds like

    ^Most people don't know that much about music theory. I'm Grade 5 theory and know nothing of most of what you discuss. Where have you accumulated all of it, anyway?

    Nowhere lol. I was in sound engineering in my vocational high school for a year before I got kicked out of school. That's the closest thing to any musical education that I have... other than that it's just from reading various books and getting ripped out of my mind and listening to hip-hop 24/7 for like 13 years.

    I swear - there's so much technique and structure to the way cats flow, and when I hear people sayin "they have no flow" 'cause it doesn't follow a back-and-forth pattern and bar-cycle, I'm just like wtf? 'cause I hear so much dope shit goin' on with the flow. I listen to flows the same way I look for different rhyme schemes, and the only word I can think of for it is intricacy. There's so many ways to attack a beat and adjust the cadence of every syllable depending on whatever sounds are in it and what word.

    The best example I can think of right now is someone like Raekwon... he doesn't have anything even close to a Fabolous or Ludacris flow, but I swear the way he syncopates his syllables, and times his completely out-of-order rhyme scheme to bounce across, or stop and start on a drum pattern is just insane to me. To me that's the most interesting kind of flow... it's the same shit everybody gives Biggie so much props for - Biggie never had a back and forth flow, but he attacked the rythm and structure of a beat and just let shit land where it fit.
