We want to believe that rap artists when we will push a play. But what makes an incredible rapper sound on the mic? Their ability to express sincerity without screening. The raps that hit and the last are the most faithful ones.
In that breath, we asked the Managing Editor Donna-Claire Chesman and the Yoh SEO Writer to define sincerity in hip-hop and break down the sincerity like wax.
The conversation, which is arranged lightly for content and clarity, follows.

Happy Thursday, my first dear woman. We are starting early today. What's on mind before noon?
difficulties [10:17 AM]
Good morning Yohsipher, is early for you, but Donna is waiting back from six.
Today I want to discuss sincerity in music. We often talk about what rap does truth, and we always note it to be authentic, but then we make the sensitive conversation on which more value is by truths. I don't think there is one more positive life experience, per se, in hip-hop. It is the sincerity of delivery that makes it "true."
So what does sincerity in hip-hop sound with you?
yoh [10:25 AM]
Wonderful question. It seems like sincerity in rap Tupac on his third studio album, Me Against the World. This is a project that is full of rapping from its stomach. He loves the love, the grain and the passion in his body. That sincerity of delivery is made by Tupac as an excellent artist. He made every word he put into sound as true as he made in his spirit.
What about you? What does sincerity in hip-hop sound?
difficulties [10:29 AM]
I love sincerity, and sorry for being repetitive they're just on my mind, Nip and Mac. There's nothing like 'Nip's Day'; by Mac Miller Lap Victory, but both have a lot of sincerity. Neither artist does anything like they are not.
Luath-Mac Miller did not try to get into hip-hop, he gave us the day of his life doing breakfast and going on a storm, and that was fine and he was getting worse. Nipsey gave us every opportunity to Crenshaw and Slauson, and the words hit many cords because Nip is a file that could raise his life experiences from the page. In that way, it reminds your Frank O 'Hara, three days takes as simple as it, but the end result is more than the sum of the events.
yoh [10:42 AM]
I love how you mentioned Nipsey, Mac, and Frank O 'Hara. I spent a lot of time with Nipsey's music since he got up. When he released his ninth mixed mixture Mailbox Money in 2014, I was working on my last day at Olive Garden and I completely lost it.
Listening to the project on a retrospective basis, I wanted to make the mix there. On each song, he has this real and inspiring insight into life and how you can get all your dreams. That's what I love about Nipsey, he never felt that he was selling a dream, but a distant reality. Rappers with car sales enthusiasts are a different experience.
What call cards does an artist have a real heart with their raps?
difficulties [10:46 AM]
I hate to say it this way, but there is only "truth." We are feeling animals, like humans, and we can make sense of it when someone starts. There is a crack in the voice, there is inflection. There is always something that encourages us not to believe an artist. Some of the most insincere raps are the best one. Ask yourself, have I heard this story already?
The specificity of a bar, no matter the topic, is what makes it loyal. Mac's music video campaign CHILDREN. It's so loyal as it's just running through the day. It is hyper-specific, but in that sense we believe it straight away as it passes through aisles in the grocery store. Nip's visual vision carries much of it.
Specificity and sincerity goes on hand, do not you agree?
yoh [10:59 AM]
Yes, absolutely! There must be a unique identity to convey to the most serious version of your story. Anyone can say that they have run out of the plug, or have taken off abandoned buildings, but these are images that have become so general that they are not colored. There is nothing greener than general banal boast. That's why I love JAY-Z. First of all ("regret") of the beginning of Jay Reasonable doubt, there is a vignettes sequence that sells the idea to endure sadness events. It is so true, raw, and specific that I must take his words as a gospel.
Another great example is "Models Players," one of the best records on In My Lifetime Vol. 1. It's just something about the harm it has by liars and phonetics that show the power in a comprehensible heart. If you are the man, you must speak as THE MAN. You cannot let that ridicule or refute it.

Do you think that brag entries have higher barriers to entry for the sake of sincerity than might be more in the music world than la Rapsody?
yoh [11:10 AM]
I can. This is a music genre where honesty is in keeping with the art form. I can't remember the word-for-word line, but Drake has a lyric where he says, "The thing that is best for me is that I look forward to my respect."[[[[Editor's Note: is from "Take a Joke."]
I thought there was so much frustration in the context of being able to make any boom, but that's why exposure is so big – you don't want to get caught up. It is harder to prove that someone is convinced of his life than having a fake Rolex smear. However, there are many Rolex raps. There is art to do bragging and do it faithfully, so when it happens, we feel it.
difficulties [11:13 AM]
That's what makes such a “powerful” excuse for Rapsody on “Power”. Rap is "bragging" around the song, but in fact, she is taking us on a journey coming in power, and that is the best way to be terrible but keep your soul.
Much of it Laila Enlightenment Rapsody is associated with herself, but the way she does it, as we move into her life and walk through her struggles, puts all deserves and pleasures. We celebrate with it. That's wisdom too. So your point about fake Rolexes, I don't think it matter if the watch is true or not, but you were earning.
yoh [11:15 AM]
Now it's a beautiful way to put it.
