Rap culture is interesting and different and has purpose but it has a non-romantic view of life and of social feelings. There may be a void in that.
Pop songs are not as graceful as they used to be. Performers today haven't gone through the regimen of learning how to write. And of course, everyone wants to own copyrights.
One thing a lyricist must learn is not to fall in love with his own lines. Once you learn that, you can walk away from the lyric and look at it with a reasonable degree of objectivity.
It's not just a revue where one song is done, then another. There are concepts and ideas at work.
