What's your thoughts do you agree? Why or why not?

It's entirely a matter of preference. Some artists kill adlibs.. some don't. Some don't need to.

Black thought rarely adlibs anything. The guy practices for a couple minutes.. says he's ready.. and lays down his take in one run. I've maybe heard a track or two where he used a backing track.. but usually it's one solid performance.

Other artists throw 3-4 extra tracks on every verse.
