一個恆久定律-意見是沒有分對與錯。最近回味經典，分別聽了RAKIM 和 BIG DADDY KANE的歌，最後得出的結論是Rakim是比較好。第一；Rakim有Eric B這位戰友。雖然沒有太多的功勞給Eric B，但聽他們的歌時，你可聽到Eric B的功力有幾強!獨特的風格、音樂氣氛使 Rakim更上一層。而Kane在歌詞上著手，以歌詞對抗Rakim。除了歌詞之外，歌曲都不及Rakim。就好像Eric B的”Welcome to the Terrordome”的真實內容，節奏感重，使人們在舞池上的手不會放下。在音樂製作上，這首曲是難以相比。就是如此，他們的獨特使他們還能在這舞台上。
另外一個有趣的觀點，就是Rakim的造型比較好。不知道?那你要看看這個音樂特輯’Move the Crowd’就會知道吧。
BIG DADDY KANE的舞群很厲害，其他人不能比較。
BIG DADDY KANE的饒舌比較好，有自己獨特的風格。
One for eternity; heated arguments in barbershops and street corners. Recently listening to the classics from both, a few points entered my mind that convinced me that Rakim IS the better of the two. The main point being, Rakim had Eric B. Not a lot of credit has been thrown Eric B.’s way, but listening to their cuts, damn! B really crafted a unique, aggressive soundscape perfect for Rakim. Kane had lyrics to go blow for blow with the R, but in terms of tracks and songs? I gots to give it to Rakim. It was like Eric B. was on some Public Enemy, ‘Welcome to the Terrordome’ ish before them! Real dense, funky and made for hard steppin’ to dancefloors. That production settles it for me. Its the tracks that can’t compare. The uniqueness of them still stand today. They sound modern, and you perk the F’up when they come on.
Other interesting point to this arguement. Rakim had the stylee down, no? Look at what homes and PNC B. were rockin’ in videos like, ‘Move the Crowd’ (DAAAMN! That Nike track suit?!), the cover of, ‘Follow the Leader’. Off the chains.
Scoop and Scrap were nobody to F with at all.
COUNTERPOINT 2 :
Can it be said Kane had the more versatile, varied flow?
