Wow, please listen to ''Sad!'' and ''Changes''. This dude is underrated. I've not been a fan of his until i heard these songs, i mean I liked the 17 album but never really into it, but this kid is extremely creative and lot of people (including me) thinks he's a demonic psycho but just like many other he has different sides of him, and he showed it here. Genius.
The saviour of music 2018, Drake did good at the beginning with ''God's Plan'' and ''Look alive'' but this is XXXTENTACIONs year!
He's a talented rapper and singer, but people are too ignorant and arrogant to look past his not so good past and listen to him unbiasedly and some just cant appreciate a style of music, even if you dont like it. Thats pure arrogance/ignorance
It really is a shame
Technically when he doesnt do the 'look at me' style, he's really good and can rap fast
Lyrically, he's vastly underrated, not many people will talk about that
Singing wise, he can sing and has a unique tone to his voice
He's able to rap and sing with many different tones of voice
So, elaborate on how he's mediocre
I do not know anything about rap but I've listened to some songs where he did sing and he was really mediocre. His timbre is nothing special. He didn't show anything that couldn't do 12 year old boy that attends singing lessons for 1 year. His range is pretty poor presumably. He is at least VERY mediocre SINGER.
really ? are you taking it from him just because you find it mediocre? let me tell you one thing about music, most of the most beautiful pieces of music are made by simple chords.
a example, this hit song by the french producer stromae, if you know at least the basics of producing you know how simple and easy it is to replicate that, but what if him never had the idea to make it ? do you think this song would ever be made exactly like it is just because it is easy ?
One speaks about a serious problem with black lives matter and rioting, the other talks about his friend who recently killed herself at the time. Both topics are serious and relevant to him, they're not fake deep at all. You have to be a troll
You just dont like his music, which is fine. Doesnt mean your opinion of his art is true
