>his work with the velvets was alright
TVU is infinitely more relevant than anything Lil B will ever do
>his solo career was garbage
not true, by the way
>he couldn't play any instruments
>he couldn't write any songs
he had writing credits on EVERY velvet underground song, almost always as the sole songwriter
>he couldn't sing at all
his singing voice was alright, nothing special, but still way better than Lil B
>lyrics cringe worthy
lou reed's lyrics were miles ahead of lil B
>bowie lauding him as a genius the way that ASAP Rocky....
Lou Reed found critical success before Bowie, no doubt Lou Reed was an influence to Bowie
What a retarded comparison.
Transformer has uh... Vicious is ok. Walk On The Wild Side is pretty great. Satellite of Love is awesome but only because of Bowie's backing vocals. The rest ranges from corny cabaret sounding garbage to inferior versions of Vicious.
By he couldn't play any instruments I mean he couldn't play them well. Same for writing.
Also I left out that Lil B is massively influential on the modern hip hop landscape despite lacking commercial success, just like TVU.
>By he couldn't play any instruments I mean he couldn't play them well. Same for writing.
These are all your subjective opinions. Evidently many people thought TVU were good song writers.
>Also I left out that Lil B is massively influential on the modern hip hop landscape...
Famous enough to know some cool celebs and travel around, but not too famous where everyone knows me and can bugs me
I'm the complete opposite ;_;
My least favorite thing about /mu/ is how the posters on this board have a sort of accepted canon of what they think is right and wrong in music, and when their views are challenged, they are quick to shout "meme!" or "bait!"
I already did. See: >>62017592
Most of the claims can be easily refuted, e.g.: he clearly could play the guitar and clearly could write songs as he wrote every song he's performed. Most of the other points are entirely subjective in nature and not worth arguing to a retard like you.
Happy to hear you admit your argument was trash, but I fail to follow your line of logic. Your post wasn't a slight against Lil B, despite the fact that it appears to compare him to Lou Reed, whom you insult as someone who can't "play any instruments," "sing," or "write songs." So, um, how is this a positive comparison for Lil B? I sort of feel like you're pulling things out of your ass on the go.
His fans are shit but I love him as a person. He's chill, really friendly, makes great music, and seems like he'd be fun to have a drink with.
