Only reason I'm doin this is cuz Flex is apparently the God MC in this mufucka and I ain't gona have him manipulatin the younger generation into thinking that there's only one way to rap.
I hate your review, and here's why.
1. Everything, all of the imperfect rhyme schemes, the "spoken word" flow you call offbeat and say you didn't like, is all done on purpose. I can be the most precise rapper in the world if I wanna be, but that's not music.
Sorry dude, but "imperfects" have been ok ever since Biggie rhymed "go/unbelievable." You can't sit there and bug out over the letters in the word saying they shouldn't rhyme. Off rhymes with ball if you swing the "A" and drop the f off in the first word. And that's ok, cuz that rhyme was about the visual, not using chaismus (internal rhymes)
2. Spoken word flo has been ok since JayZ did it with Em on the illest underground rap song to ever hit the mainstream. Everybody thought that Em murked Jay cuz Em was perfectly syncopated, but the reason that song was so great was BECAUSE of the "spoken word" flow that Jay used to accentuate the difference in styles. Each of their flos set off of the other one. So you not "liking" the flow I "chose" has nothing to do with the battle. I think you should have focused more on my technical ability to use said flow rather than the mere fact I chose it. What, if I don't do syncopated 16ths then it's no good? Naa, my dog, that's not music.
Regardless, I AM going to be using a fully syncopated, staccato, 16th note flow in the finals cuz I'm tired of ppl sayin I'm offbeat just cuz they don't understand a jazzier, funkier style. It's not all about sounding like a damn computer and using the rhyme dictionary for "perfect" rhymes.
Of course, the dirty South has always been more artistic than the West. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Hip hop kids, do YOU, and study ALL forms of music, not just that MC that sounds like a goddamn computer! Don't copy motherfuckers just cuz!!!
