I’m an avid fan of rap music. There’s so many different styles to it these days. For me, growing up in the south, I have to like and feel comfortable with southern rap. Usually, not always, southern rap is more about the delivery than the content.
About 2 years ago i was talking to Bret Lowery (President of Megastar Records) about mechanics of rap. Bret used to be a recording artist signed to MCA. And his manager was Eric B from “Eric B and Rakim” . So, needless to say, he was around some of the greats on a consistent basis.
