i think i've only heard like one song by this guy but he certainly is interesting and memorable, i will dig deeper later

I don't think he raps off beat. There's sort of a spoken word flow to certain phrases but it seems like he always knows where he is, and always lines it up to end on a strong beat.

yeah i agree with this. raps on certain beats, but he doesn't usually land with the snare on the accent beat, so it feels like he's ahead of the beat.

its been a prominent style for a long time idg why its a thing with him

Idk Jordan seems to me he pretty clearly goes off beat the same way noname gypsy or Keef or dmx go “off beat” ie as a purposeful stylistic choice that’s more about creating a distinct pocket than not being *able*

Also Detroit rappers have been off beat longer than 3 years ...

Ok, but it's very different from a rapper that's doing a standard 8th note or triplet thing that's literally offset from the grid, whether through intention or bad engineering or a bad sense of time.

We're not really saying different things, but to my ear the 'offbeat' sections are tiny pockets of time, not like a whole line.

The only annoying thing abt this for me is I feel like the same arguments I made w Keef got laughed it and then are taken seriously for whatever artist afterward ... over & over

If you guys weren’t such huge dickheads about it we wouldn’t be here right now!!

Luckily ppl are still coming at me on Twitter for claiming that blueface has a rhythmic pocket

ILX’s bad boy (D-40), Thursday, 13 December 2018 22:13 (two months ago) Permalink

haha dude c'mon I will admit - though still Keef is not my preferred type of rap -- that you were right about his ongoing importance & i appreciate his music now more than i did

If you guys weren’t such huge dickheads about it we wouldn’t be here right now!!

actually we still would be
