Yay or Nay: Ugly Frank

I got mixed feelings about this one. Well, not personally. I know I like it. But I have a feeling most of you might not feel the same way. I’m basing this entirely on past “yay or nay” rappers I’ve posted who rap a certain way about certain things. Basically, the less nerdy the rapper, the less you guys seem to like him. In the case of Tacoma Washington’s Ugly Frank , he is not that nerd. but he’s also not really a get the partty started thug either. Not even close. He’s a quick fire , talk shit about his bitches , mention his cars type of relentless kinda rapper. He’s part of a group called ILLFIGHTYOU and he recently released his first solo ep called “The Bobby Hill EP”.

Beats wise, I found his music to be somewhere between synthy cloud rap stuff, G-funk and some double time southern type style. Whatever it is, it’s interesting when coupled with his pin point flow. Here are some examples…


So, what do you think?

  1. I’m not so interested in the content of his verses, but he sounds fresh to me; especially because he isn’t monotone like the bulk of new rappers. I’m all for that squeaky toy thing that keeps talking shit to the beat, too.

  2. I have mixed feelings about this guy. On the one hand, he’s definitely got chops; more so than just about anyone I’ve heard out of Tacoma.

    But, on the other hand, I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA, and I live in Tacoma now, so lyrically his songs feel a bit disingenuous when I know the city hasn’t gotten busy like that since the 90s. Like, I remember when it was a bunch of gangsters all over the place, and gunshots every night, but it sure as hell ain’t that, anymore. Hell, he shouts out the Northend on the Leftover video, but I live on the Northend…it’s a bunch of old people and college kids walking their dogs.

    Oh well…maybe him and his people’s are still living that life. At least he can rap, though
