I dislike the lyrics of most rap songs. That and the voices of a lot of rappers are crap. And I find the beats way too aggressive.
I will get a lot of hate for this, but the only rap songs I actually enjoy are a couple youtubers and Lin-Manuel Miranda (read: Hamilton)
Well its pretty hard to give you anything that will stand up to what is one of the best musicals of our generation...but if you like hamilton you are looking for a wordplay flow and softer orchestral beats. I would suggest artists like watsky and Logic.
- Watsky, Wounded Healer is an amazing example of his lyricsm and has a softer/emotional story to go with it. I would also see Tiny Glowing Screens Pt. 2, and Woah Woah Woah(has a cool bo burnham cameo).
- Logic, Man of the Year has an amazing beat produced by No I.D. who is legendary in the world of producers. I would also give Till the end a chance, everything he does has really personal meaningful lyrics.
- Childish Gambino, Break(All of the Lights), This should satisfy your want for more orchestral beats. Its Donald Glovers remix of Kanye West's All of the Lights. I have always felt Kanye is one of the most talented producers out there but has had terrible storytelling/flow for the last 3 albums. So with this you get an amazing producer and amazing lyricist.
