toure writes as he speaks aloud, without thinking and
a fully developed thought.

"The story simply chooses to ignore the truth that timing, image, management and an ability to generate buzz in varying mediums are just as important as rap ability in these times where blog hits determine a rapper's worth as much as sales. Odd Future's (and Drake before them) well-documented rise to notoriety happened by way of social media savvy and a flood of critically lauded releases via various top Rap blogs. Neither Tyler's nor Drake's respective paths to fame were the byproducts of being reared in inner city environs.'

It's so fucking interesting to me that this paragraph says nothing about talent, skill, ability. Instead you've used 'inner city environs' as the elder fundamental which has been replaced by media buzz. In other words 'inner city environs' have replaced skills.

Discuss.

PS I'm DAing!!!

"are just as important as rap ability" -- and further, I say "in these times". Now, my point was to decry Toure's ham-handed statement that Hip Hop's "snarl" so to speak and edge is borne of urban influence and the like. He doesn't even credit or even attempt to acknowledge the flip side.

Now I can see if he was taking a historian's angle, but he wasn't. He was speaking of the now -- he was focusing his analysis of what Rap is made of from what he thinks he currently knows.
