Ebro took to Twitter to share his thoughts on rappers. In his posts, the Hot 97 New York radio host says there is a difference between lyricists and rappers. Ebro says that lyricism is when artists use wordplay and rapping is “words that rhyme.”
The radio personality puts his Twitter followers in a frenzy after explaining how he differentiates rappers from lyricists.
Hot 97’s Ebro Darden had Twitter in a frenzy Friday afternoon when he sent out a tweet explaining the differences between Tupac and Biggie, Jay Z and Nas. Specifically, what separates a lyricist from a rapper.
What started as an opinion to ignite discussion turned into instant clickbait. Here’s what got Twitter up in arms
Nas = Lyrical
Pun = Lyricist
BIG L = Lyricist
Kendrick = Lyrical
Killer Mike = Lyricist & Lyrical
Andre 3000 = Lyricist & Lyrical
