  1. Some cool punchlines but my God does this guy's flow suck ass.

    He sounds like he's trying too hard but lyrically he's legit.

  2. I want to like this guy, but truth is he's ok at best as an MC. State of the Art was good only because it was produced by Needlz. If he went over regular beats, he doesn't have the skill to bring them to life

  3. Clearly neither of you listen to genuine hip hop. And I mean when it was all about lyrics. You're probably in you younger twenties or teens and are more concerned with the flows of a drake, kanye, or a meek mill, than you are with the lyrical capabilities of and H.E. or a Jay Electonica. I would bet my life on it you didn't even catch all the metaphors. But anywho... anyone who appreciates hip hop for what it was INTENDED to be... knows that this shit is FIRE.

  4. "i'll get a grammy in an instant ,yeah instagram me."

    "when I guillotine this shit, where will I be headed?..
    Will I go Good Music, will Young Money embrace em,
    I'm so Cold, will Jay -Elect me to Roc Nations..."

    "I doubt when they say 'death before dishonor'... but I PROMISE it's Death b4 u Dis Honors"

    "They gone call me James Bond in a session, 2014 flow, that's 007"

    That boi is NASTY, and consistently, no fluke here. Do the genre a favor and spread this mans music and message, only he and Lupe really give it the Honor is deserves, don't be a follower, set the trend for the new fools to step their bars up and stop making us look like fuckin bafoons. #thatisall

  5. "Chicks keep asking, how I'm calm when I'm spazzing, they know I'm chill but they still want that over reaction (ovary action)..." Best punchline I've heard in years...

    this dude is the truth where can i find more?

  7. "He sounds like he's trying too hard but lyrically he's legit"

    I have to agree. Punchlines on point but the rhythm of his rhyming is just... I don't know. Something sounds off. Maybe he's trying to hard to use his 'hard' voice because he's usually not this on but yet off point.

  8. Punchlines are the weakest form of lyricism. They hold no strength and sound like corny jokes and puns you throw tomatos for. And to the homie talking about "oh you youngins just care about flow," rap was about the verbals before it was about lyricism. That's why niggas always kicked nursery rhyme shit. People were feelin that flow. Was Paid in Full a stretch of clever and intricate metaphors before it was just dope beats and flow? It shows musical intuition and takes just as much skill as lyrics. Having both is what makes the emcee. BUT CHO IM JUSSAYIN :O

  10. Isn't this the same site that Lupe told Sean the Robot to disable comments because the trolls were Out of Control?:/ Poor guy was suicidal messing with some of yall. Strange that such a Dope artist brings out some of the best and worst 'fans'. Opinions on this particular blog will be taken with a grain of salt.

    Always Remember to smile:)

  11. Punchlines were crazy there is no question of whether honors english is more than "average at best" but the flow was definitely off I liked the boldness he needs more tracks like this one.

  12. well, I'm not a huge Kanye fan flow wise & I never thought he was the best 'rapper', (makes great songs overall though) But honestly, he has done better verses than what was done on Theraflu. I give it to Honors, besides, I like 'can a young God get money anymore?'...dont know about yall, but I'm sick of 'niggas'

  13. Just for perspective i checked comments on the other blogs and his youtube page and yep... the remains the only one with negative comments... i don't get u people... he's exceptionally nice... and these punchlines aren't just any punchlines... just give dude his props Honors E 1 kanye 0

  14. No one's questioning whether or not he has good lines. But that's not what makes a great MC. That would make people like Lil Wayne the greatest rappers, which at this blog we believe to be a joke. I don't think Honors is a joke, but I just don't think his style isn't great. I want him to go over a simpler beat to either disprove or prove that I'm right. Something like Nas's Daughters. Good example of simple beat turning into an excellent song from the MC

    1. On his State of the Art project he has some songs that aren't punchline based. Try listening to 'Priceless', it is a different style than Colder

  15. Check out www.thehonorssociety.com where you'll find his album,'State of the Art'. I'd love to hear a review from those who aren't sold yet. (free download btw) SOTA showcases a broad range from Honors, 2 official videos that are DOPE (nothing bootleg coming from he and Needlz) interviews and commentary from Sway, CeeLo Green Shahiem Reed (XXL) not to mention a very rare occurrence of a Lupe feature 'Flying High' and damn near flawless comments, likes and tweets from those catching wind of him. I'm all for being objective, stans obstruct the view of reality, but this is his Debut Album, and it's a monster, imagine what he'll crank out 2 projects from now, I already know...remember this post when the 'I told ya so's' come around;)

    Sincerely,

    a Lupe Fiasco, Honors English and 3Stacks Fan!

  16. oh yeah, its me again the Lu, Honors and 3000 fan. I forget to make mention of the fact that anyone coming out of the freakin blue coming for Kanye with no prior mixtape floating around or known history probably doesn't sit well with fans of established artists. The simple fact that MANY listeners give this challenge to Honors shows that he is a force that will be able to compete with the giants. If flow is your only critique, then it's just a matter of time before you'll be a fan, because his will only get better...:)

  17. I liked SOTA. But I wouldn't call it his first album. He's been in the business for a while. I read his bio and apparently after his deal for a rap group fell through in 2001 he became a history professor. Not too shabby. Can you imagine his ex-students seeing him now and being like "damn that guy taught me about WWII!!!" lolz
