I’m a Emcee and Kendrick Lamar is a thorough Emcee. I wholeheartedly agree. No Artist can claim to be an Artist performing another’s work. A person can be talented and have the skill to perform and sing but this does not mean they have the intellectual and passionate experience to poetically express themselves in a way that others can relate. When one with talent can write then you are an artist. But if you can only perform without the skill of writing then you just have talent.
