Lauren I enjoyed reading your post. To be honest I did not know that this was debate that took place. I defiantly agree with our peer Gavin Clements in his Medium post “Lyrics in Hip Hop Losing Importance?” when he talked about how some people like a song because they can dance to it. I'm defiantly guilty of that. To answer your last question I'm team both, generally. There are artist out there like Drake and J-Cole have both things going for them.
