    To have zero technical lyricism at all? He completely sacrificed that for emotion, substance, message and feeling

    Where as prior to Mockingbird on his introspective and personal songs he had a balance of both emotion and substance but still delivered with some technical lyricism. Sometimes it would be a 70% to 30% of emotion of technical lyricism but that 30% or even 10% of lyricism would be there

    Lol @ ignoring and skipping/overlooking "If I Had" to draw this conclusion.

    Nah, 'Murder Murder' gotta be the first. If we're being honest about sacrificing technical rap for emotion and storytelling, wouldnt Just The Two Of Us also go into that category?...by the way, you can let it go, no ones looking for technical lyricism in a love song presented in lullaby form written specifically for his two young daughters

    Reading posts like this makes me wonder what they have been putting in the water supply.

    As to the OP's question, yeah, it is. Song sucks.

    I'd rather have him pay literally 0 focus on his "technical" skill and have him make good songs with great content, verses, flow and delivery.
