nope, I've heard him. sounds god-awful. admittedly I hate the vast bulk of rap "music" but I find his brand of noise to be particularly loathesome.
From a sonic perspective he's got a lot of interesting ideas, particularly in the context of pop music.
I don't own any of his records, but calling him talentless just makes it sound like you don't know what you're talking about.
That's not what I'm talking about, though. You don't have to like it to know that it's good -- the vast majority of radio music, regardless of genre, sounds tremendous, and there's a reason some of these producers can command seriously high dollar prices for sessions.
It has next to nothing to do with "like" or "dislike" unless you're the kind of person who judges things exclusively on that criteria. Not that that isn't a perfectly valid way to measure things, but it does sound uneducated.
when it comes to personal taste, then 'like' or 'dislike' is the primary way to judge things. Music is very much one of those things.
as far as rap goes, there's no musicianship that I could point to and appreciate. For example, I can't stand most country music either but I can certainly appreciate musicianship that goes into it. Rap is basically rhythmic speech. while it does require some effort to become good at it, it's not nearly on the same level as someone who actually sings. another example, I'm not a fan of Christina Aguilera's music but I can appreciate she has an incredible voice.
calling that uneducated is getting on a high horse to look down on others that don't share your viewpoint and you come across as an elitist snob.
