Awesome / The Rap Critic

  • Rap Critic's rap song! Oh Really?
    • The rest of his album as Masta Artisan is not half bad either. The man has some serious lyrical talent.
    • And he can dance, too.
  • The last minute of "Worst Lyrics I've Ever Heard... This Year (2011), where he goes on an angry rant about how mainstream music has become.
  • Similar to the above, his "haters" rant from the Worst Lyrics of October 2012 video.
  • In his "Bitch Bad" review he had his interpretation of the lyrics confirmed by Lupe Fiasco himself.
  • At the end of his "Worst Lyrics" list for 2012, he gives a solid explanation as to why he was initially hopeful for the career of Nicki Minaj, but is ultimately disappointed in her.
    • On a similar note, he also explains why he doubts the relationship between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is genuine (in spite of a moment of factual incorrection regarding the sport Kris Humphries (Kim's ex-husband) plays), and calls out a lyric in a song which declares that talking with a woman after sex implies homosexuality.
  • His rap imagining what happened if Black Rob's "Whoa" continued beyond the "finger in the asshole" line, especially the last line during his "Top 5 Worst Lyrics I've Ever Heard... This Month - March 2013" video.
  • Calling a shameless whore for putting a hashtag in the title of '#thatpower' to try getting it trending on Twitter, despite the fact that the song has nothing to do with Twitter whatsoever.
  • Rap Critic and Kyle Kallgren providing their own version of Jay-Z's Picasso Baby with better art references and wordplay.
  • From his "Top 10 Worst Lyrics I've Ever Heard...This Year (2013)" review: Calling out Rick Ross for a line in "U.O.E.N.O." in which Ross casually mentions putting Molly in a girls champagne and raping her. Ross even had the gall to say that people were misunderstanding his lyric and saying that it had nothing to do with rape, to which the Rap Critic knows he had no care to what he said or the problems behind it at all.
    • Calling out Lil Wayne for daring to compare having sex to the death of Emmett Till, going so far as to say, "There's a fucking limit" to how far rappers should take lyrics in mainstream music.
  • His explanation of why Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" is horribly unfeminist despite what some may say.
  • His "Top 10 Worst Lyrics of 2014" video showcases Rap Critic obliterating P. Diddy for daring to put Product Placement to his alcohol brand in a song about police brutality.
  • His daring to analyse and pick apart the flaws of Fuck Da Police by N.W.A. and Fight the Power by Public Enemy, the Sacred Cows of gangsta rap.
  • Reviewing "Dilemma" by Nelly, one of his favorite songs of the 2000s and analyzing it without the nostalgia goggles.
  • His ripping apart of B.o.B's anti-science and Insane Troll Logic song "Flatline" in his "Worst Lyrics of 2016" video, as well as pointing out how even though people seem to generally know he's a crackpot, Conspiracy Theories like his can be actively harmful regardless of that fact.
  • His brutal takedown of Tyga for his song "$timulated", which is about his dating Kylie Jenner while she was still underage.
    Rap Critic: Guess what the name of the sample is that he uses for this song? ... He uses a song called Children to talk about having sex with his underage girlfriend. *completely devoid of sarcasm* Dude. Fuck you."
  • In his "Top 10 Worst Lyrics I've Ever Heard...This Year (2017)" review: Calling out Jaden Smith for comparing himself to Martin Luther King Jr. in one of his songs. Also, his explanation of how there's a difference between rappers who are "fake deep" and rappers who genuinely have a message in their music, and how unfair it is to automatically assume they're one and the same.
  • Also in his "Top 10 Worst Lyrics I've Ever Heard...This Year (2017)", his takedown of Logic song "Ink Blots" feat Juicy J, where Juicy J finishes the outro of the song by telling people who show off on Instagram to kill themselves as an insult... on the same album that features one of 2017's most prominent anti-suicide songs (namely the song "1-800-273-8255") as one of its main draws. After proving Juicy J to be a Hypocrite on this point (using video from Juicy J's own Instagram, no less) and demonstrating that Juicy J was not speaking from the perspective of those Instagram users as some fans have tried to claim, he proceeds to spell it all out for Logic and Juicy J.
    Rap Critic: "And you know what type of people like to pretend that they're doing better than they actually are?" (through gritted teeth) "People who might be depressed, and might have suicidal tendencies, you assholes."
