Rappers that seem intelligent and articulate on the mic but come off badly in interviews?

    Hm. I heard Jay Z on Howard Stern and he seemed to hold his own pretty well.

    Nas... he mumbles his way through most interviews... only seen a couple where he looks intelligent

    case in point is this interview with Nardwuar where Nas acts like a ? and punks him at the end:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UL8PuPjYdyk

    Ill be ? too if this guy is showing me a bunch of ? and then says I cant keep anything

    But the interviewer is Nardwuar... everyone knows his schtick

    compare interviews Nardwuar has done with Snoop or Pharrell to see rappers who give great interviews...

    Nardwuar has great interviews. Probably my favorite. One thing I did notice is since this Nas one. every interview after I seen he lets the rappers keep the stuff now

    Jay Electronica

    I think it may be partly due to him always stuttering and rambling

    idk about intelligent in his music but T.I always tryna use words in his interviews that have u saying this guy mustve heard someone say that ? and he's been waiting to use that

    He also uses words at the wrong time, even though they may technically fit. It ends up sounding mad awkward like, "man this pizza's toppings are perplexing magnificent. My decadent tastebuds cannot contain themselves. After this meal ill go for a delightful post-prandial stroll."

    Lmao
    I had to wack that tho, how do u use words at the wrong time if they technically fit?

    Ab-Soul most def brah .

    I'm Sorta the same way, sometimes i ponder too much on the perfect thing to say. My mind moves a mile a minute.....that's why i sound better on written replies and convos because i have time to properly reply in the most intelligently possible .

    ...Sorta like this post .

    sounds like he's one of those people who think using big words means they're smart.

    I know this is a rap thread, but it's always uncomfortable watching a Jhene Aiko interview.

    Why's that?

    She's incredibly inarticulate and long winded which is a bad combo. She makes good music though.

    Idk why i like her. She isnt really a good singer. She stays the same tone for themost part. Kinda talk/sings.

    I listened to her album and all the songs kinda sounded the same.

    She has a nice voice tho. I like her on hooks. She fine too
