The best Spice yet!
on March 2, 2003
Spice is so far above the rest of the rappers. His material is better in many ways. Its angrier but also the music and production is of much higher quality. For example, you put on Ice-T and its some basic drum machine beat with him rapping and a couple bland instruments. Spices songs are so much fuller. Big fat instrument sounds, lush catchy melodies, etc. I think Spices standards must be a lot higher than his peers because the product he puts out has such higher quality. I really dont listen to much other rap because I cant tolerate their poor song writng and production.
I should add that unlike many rappers, Spice can actually SING and does it very well. I hesitate to categorize him as rap because he falls into. Other areas such as R&B, rock, even techno. My only complaint remains that he needs fresh lyrics. He tends to either use the same ones from album to album or use them over and over on one album. An example of the former is, He raps about "Tech 9 in the bushes" on a few CDs. An example of the latter is, Ive heard "turn the heat down" too many times on this one along with "sticky green" on multiple songs. His material is by far the best and nastiest out there, but he needs some assistance on the lyrics.
