Do you think P was a good rapper ???

A lot of people criticized Prince when he decided to rap back in a day, but I truly think he wasn't such a bad rapper... Maybe I'm the only one but I think he was pretty good...
Don't know why people critize him so much on this point...

I loved Pussy Control, but overall I don't think he had that particular genre down.

I miss the good old days when he used to just sing, and he used to sing a lot better circa Revolution than recently too...

It doesn't matter whether he's a good rapper or not. He just doesn't need to do it....period. Bring on the funk & rock and let the thugged out Romper Roomers have the rap.

He has his moments with the raps, some of his rhymes are just as cool as any hip hopper today, but other rhymes are utter crap. 50% aint that good P, move on.

Prince never really had the knack for it, and would waste too much paper and tape, so now he just goes to that little courtesy stand at the end of the mall and pays someone else to do it for him.

He generally is not very good but he was excellent on these three tracks:

Pussy Control
Days of Wild
Face Down
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

one of his worst raps is the one he does in "The Latest Fashion"


"Yes!...I'm back,it's jacked....and I'm harder than a heart attack
and I'm the cure for any disease...cuz ain't nobody funky like me!"

generally, no.

but he's done some decent raps. I think the lyrics flow very well on gett off (if you want to call that a rap), and on days of wild, and on race.

terrible raps - the flow, the pope & some others mentioned here.
