Has technology caused rappers to be lazy...


Remember back in the days when Big L or Canibus would spew endless rhymes on the radio station that made them seem like drones or programmed robots? Well nowadays it seems as if rappers are not prepared to showcase their talents when they are given the chance to shine. Rappers nowadays seem to turn to technology (most notably cell phones) to assist them in delivering a verse. That is like an actor relying on a teleprompter during an entire movie (which would tarnish the effectiveness of the script). In my opinion that is the definition of laziness, I would rather an emcee spit an old verse than fumble through a new verse utilizing a cell phone. I understand the notion or the idea of delivering a new verse to the masses but it seems as if memorization has become a lost art. Which leads to the centralized theme of this post, has technology caused rappers to become lazy?
