Agree or disagree Rappers should try to keep RnB Singers feature for Hooks as minimal as possible

    As long as it's a dope song, it doesn't matter. Sometimes a singer enhances the song. Nas is my favorite rapper and he's done a lot of dope even classic collabos with R&B singers:

    Nas feat. R. Kelly- Street Dreams Remix
    Nas feat. Lauryn Hill- If I Ruled The World
    Nas feat. Ron Isley- Project Windows

    ^^^Classics

    Nas feat. Aaliyah- You Won't See Me Tonight
    Nas feat. Alicia Keys- Warrior Song
    Nas feat. Chrisette Michele- Can't Forget About You
    Nas feat. Chrisette Michele- Still Dreamin
    Nas feat. Trey Williams- Let There Be Light
    Nas feat. Keri Hilson- Hero
    Nas feat. Marsha Ambrosius- If I Ruled The World '09

    ^^^ Dope

    most of these new rappers are singing their hooks and its sounds awful. imagine Big Sean singing My Last or Wale singing That Way (dope songs btw) not everyone can be like BTNH

    Cosign.

    But it's not like more than a few Rappers atleast since the 2000 era till present haven't actually had success Singing or Harmonizing the Hooks themself if we talking Hit records or succesful Albums. Eminem, Bone Thugs and Harmony, Whiz Khalifa, Drake, 50 Cent, T.I. just to name a few.


    So when those Rappers actually Sing or Harmonize their Hooks and gain success while doing it do you feel it makes those like Rick Ross, Jay, Nas, Snoop most Rappers really who just pay Singers to feature and do their Hooks look bad? look like they taking the most easy route?


    It would be 1 thing if all these Rappers Harmonizing and Singing where failing at it like the Singlers they were doing it on were flopping or the Albums they were doing it on weren't selling all that much. But for so many Rappers who do it to maintain a high level of success while Harmonizing and Singing would you not say it does make those look bad atleast in this climate that take the easy route and pay others to do the Hooks on their Songs?

    I don't think it's taking the "easy route" by recruiting a singer for a song because i'm more concerned in how the overall song sounds.

    It requires just as much effort, if not more to put together a great song with an R&B feature than a rapper to harmonize the hook themselves...that's why I don't think enlisting a R&B singer isn't creative.

    ...and there are plenty of songs where the singer outshines the rapper as well as songs that the song overall sounds bad, even with an R&B singer.

    the way people are talking in this thread makes me wonder if all of you seem to think every chorus needs to be sang (by a singer or the rapper themselves). its not like a chorus cant just be a good mini-verse type thing. i like those best.

    but totally on topic, it is wack as fuck to have a ton of features, especially for just hooks.. it shows lack of real artistry. it'd be like a painter doing 2/3 of their painting and letting someone else finish it.
    "21 Questions" (featuring Nate Dogg)

    "Baby by Me" (featuring Ne-Yo)
    "Could've Been You" (featuring R. Kelly)
    "Girls Go Wild" (featuring Jeremih)

    4 albums released. 1 shelved. and 1 on the way (maybe) and these are all the tracks that feature someone on the hook, there could be more but I just went with the ones that I assumed were on the hooks. I guess he has a lack of real artistry
