    HIP HOP RHETORIC

    Im not the only one that loves to put 1 in tha air and listen to some good ol' fashioned hip hop. no surprise. but im lookin for specific hip hop songs that tell a story or use a diff type of rhetoric (like story tellin or persuasion or language skills on a particular topic..)



    EXAMPLES:


    Tech N9ne- Worst enemy


    "Every time you got drawls you made my Poor little life fall nigga you got balls.You ain't never had a partner like me, real.


    I never ever sold you pipe dreams personal yes it might seemNigga when you was burning, I went and got the doxcyclineLooked out for your health, and this is all the respectI get hater your neck I slit but I can't cause I'mAttached to ya and I don't know why sometimes I wishYou would just die.."


    Nas- I Gave you power


    "Always I'm in some shit, my abdomen is the clipThe barrel is my dick, uncircumcisedPull my skin back and cock me, I bust off when they unlock meResults of what happens to niggaz shock meI see niggaz bleedin runnin from me in fear, stunningly tearsfall down the eyes of these so-called tough guys, for yearsI've been used in robberies, givin niggaz heart to follow me..."




    what are some story tellin hip hop songs u think ppl shud hear?

    well hell 95% of music tells a story but im thinking of ones that have meaning. hell katy perry's "hot and cold" tells a story if u wanna be literal. like my favorite song that does have a story isn't hip hop, well it's two songs both by Lynyrd Skynyrd "Ballad of Curtis Slow" and "Simple Man"

    ok lets see,spice 1 tells a story about the hood using certain types of guns and drugs as the characters
    you got royce da 59 who gives his view on hiphop by becoming a taxi driver that is basically going through time and making his stops along way to a specific event in the rap game,and one of my favorites is tupac and the outlaws who take turns telling a story about 3 ppl who used to be friends but end up betraying one another,the thing about the pac song i loved is that they all trade bars throughout the whole song while they tell thier story,dontt know if thats exactly what your looking for but heres the tracks
