    Lyrics. But I mean, it has to have a decent beat, cause if it has a bad beat..then nobody will wanna check it out haha.

    If you have garbage lyrics..it's like..art without a meaning. Personally, I enjoy finding the meaning in art.

    Lyrics cause they're sending the real message, but you know a beat is important too, a good beat can make all the difference in making the mc sound fresh and also a good beat is easy to fall in love with, if a song just sounds good no matter what it's saying you're gonna like it, but just because you like what someone is saying doesn't mean it sounds good, naw mean?

    obviously id want both
    but i find it harder to listen to dope lyrics over a shite beat,

    ike if the beats good u can kinda zone out the shitty lyrics....but u need to pay atetion to listen to the lyrics an sadly that means hearing a gay beat




    but it all depends how dope they are, like canibus and big l had a few songs with anoying beats but the lyrics are to good to miss


    but i wont listen to a lil weezy song even if its a primo or large pro beat, just get the instrumetal

    Yeah Canibus is incredible but the beat can nearly give me a headache sometimes.
    Songs like Indivisable and Horsementality would have been good but I can't stand the beat.
    I listen to him a lot regardless.
