    Re: Was the NCG halftime show the worst ever?

    The problem with getting rappers to perform at events like the NCG is that their songs contain explicit lyrics, which means they can't sing half of them, so then the performance ends up sounding like a radio cutting out with all the start/stop of actual words being said.

    Kendrick Lamar is incredible, and deserved the Grammy's he won hands down. Bruno Mars, however, is not incredible but has learned how to be incredible to teenagers so his popularity guides him through. Childish Gambino "Awaken My Love" is one of the best albums released in a long time. As one writer said, it was probably the most influential album released since maybe Purple Rain.

    Music is one of those things that's widely personal, it attracts people in different ways , some of it's timeless some i attribute to the flavor of the week. I'm extremely picky in my music selection but having said that, I grew up in the late 80's rock and 90's alternative. I never grew out of that. To this day , I gravitate towards 80's rock, alternative, classic rock and blues. I never found an interest in rap or r&b, never even followed country music. Kendrick Lamar's certainly not my style but I was a fan of prince ...

    I think whether music is "good" or "bad" depends on who's listening. We've got a person in this thread who is in the music industry by trade and says KL lacks talent and then folks who are self proclaimed music snobs who think KL is incredible.

    Bruno Mars is a better performer than Kendrick Lamar. Lamar is a superior lyricist.
    Lamar is a poet, Mars is an entertainer.
    Neither is a dirty thing to be.

    Myself I picked up a guitar when I was 8 , somehow found myself playing blues ....I started playing shows by 12 and when into rock from there. I think ones background and upbringing may contribute to some as to what they like or do not like but for me I certainly have to feel a relation to the music , almost be able to bond with the musician. I found that blues and rock served me better as a vehicle to express any songs or emotions I have. Of course I don't make a living off of it and mines certainly not by trade. Though I wished at times it were:-)

    This ^^

    Its not my "cup of tea" - in fact, I wouldn't walk across the street to see Lamar, or any of his ilk. And yet, his fans will give him more money from sales of his "music" (sic) in the next 5 minutes than I will earn at my job in the several months.

    Different strokes.

    Not that this is a reflection of his work, but I had literally no idea they gave a Pulitzer for music.

    I always associated them with the written word.

    So hearing this feels like someone getting an Emmy for best 30 minutes crockpot recipe.

    Wasn't there a time when Pulitzer prize meant something? What do you get nowadays for winning...a Sam's club membership card? No offense to any Sam's club membership card holders on here.

    I think it was (IIRC), Minkah, that stated he appreciated his Bama experience, except for the Country Music played at BDS. I get that, I understand that, I know where he's coming from and I respect his preferences. That being said, with all due respect, my Sam Club's membership card is a thousand times more useful to me that anything a rapper can produce...no offense.
