I think its a balance of both sides of this coin. A good MC adds to teh rythm and atmosphere, and COMPLIMENTS teh music. A bad MC should be taken around the back and beaten. Even worse are MC's who chat bad boy/violence /gansta inciting lyrics. It does not help the atmosphere, and well they need to fix up. I have told a few mc's who played on my sets to stop chatting about "gonna smash your face with a brick" , mainly cos I don't want ot hear that shit. If you gonna smash my face with a brick don't talk about it, crack on a do it. otehrwise bring some positivity, cos we come to teh dance to let off teh pressure, not start a fight. Well most of us.
