"who's the last act you saw that was so talented they scared you?"
Fri Dec-28-12 09:06 PM by bavid dammer

  

          

like they were pushing the limits on what you believed was possible that they honestly frightened you?

there's quite a few battle rappers out nowadays that make me feel like this.

madlib made me feel this way.

there's all sorts of old musicians who are dead or in their 60's-80's...
but they don't count for "new".

anybody out there have a clip you want to share of chops in such abundance it makes other people reconsider trying?
(and please don't post that kid who pushes buttons quickly on an mpc - i don't care about that bullshit anymore)

lux's theatrics were the selling point, the rhymes weren't all that.
that last verse was sort of wack imo (naming black heroes to diss his father for being affiliated but then talking gunplay in his other verses)

listen to how many witty lines there is between the 2 of these dudes:

Robert Glasper, imo, is a jazz GIANT. he's absolutely amazing on the piano.

Chris Dave does shit on drums that i never contemplated being possible. if i was still playing, i'd hang my drumsticks up.

>dances, sings, showmanship etc

no, i seen her.
but so talented it's scary?
i get that the way she performs is unusually for a woman, but then again so is her image.
she is for lack of a better word kind of lesbian imo.
i saw her do the prince tribute a few years ago at the bet awards and it was just awkward.
she shuffled and flailed around doing a jackie wilson/little richard and god knows what else...
it didn't do much at all for me except make me wince.
but one man's trash is another man's treasure.

i just never thought she would instil fear in other people as a talent...

when i saw her ppl were giving her props for being james brown like
that level of energy is lacking in RnB (or whatever she does) so you have to credit her

you're right that she is very atypical as a female artist in this age

very asexual

like maybe i didn't explain this effectively...

somebody doing something so amazing that it scares you.
something that NOT everyone could do.
somebody possessing and displaying a musical proficiency so high above the norm it's extraordinary.

or something.

they had a provocative, un-nerving, un-filtered image like Wu-Tang and NWA. Yonkers sounded like the creation of a genius mad since birth.

but yeah, odd future didn't follow up on Yonkers with an album that matched the hype.

woulda been, coulda been
