I'm comparing Biggie to all the mainstream artists today that everyone hates on and says have no substance and only rhyme about money girls cars and clothes. That's exactly what Biggie rhymed about, sure tell me "he told great stories too" but what were those stories about.....money girls cars and clothes. Biggie had just as little substance as all these mainstream rappers everyone hates today
dude. jay and ye aint on biggies level...jay fell off HARD....and if thats really what you think about Biggie then idk what to say...that wasnt what he was about at all... money girls cars and clothes... REALLY?

Jay fell off? Watch the Throne just broke all the iTunes records and is currently #1 on Billboard. How is that falling off? You can tell me sales don't matter but we're talking about falling off, that directly relates to sales.

I gave Watch the Throne a 2nd listen in it's entirety today. Album kind of sucks. Jay is trying to imitate more of Kanye especially in Blueprint 3 or even try to develop a new style of his. Not sure, but he doesn't sound comfortable at all in this album. Even Ye wasn't at his best in this album.

It's going to sell big time regardless because these are 2 huge names in the industry, but it doesn't matter now though because they have my money, and the album blows. It took a while for Kanye's last album to grow on me, but at the end I like a lot. For Watch the Throne, this may be one of those albums where I may not listen to again mainly because a lot of it didn't make sense.

And Nas......how's that "Nasty" single doing? That still getting crazy amounts of airplay....oh wait no.....it completely fell off. Where is his album at anyway? Does it even have a release date?
i havent heard 1 song of kanyes id consider classic let alone an album...again with your ridiculous, how this or thatdoing on the radio or sales...you just prove how stupid the common American is... Nas and Biggie are both legends...how many of those little cute garbage radio/club rappers will you be able to say that about?

I've been listening to hip hop since 1988, therefore I've lived through and seen all the so-called "golden age" hip hop. I bumped Poor Righteous Teachers albums when they were slept on, Boogiemonsters, heard Gang Starr when Step in the Arena was out. I remember 36 and Midnight dropping on the same day. All this.....I've never once listened to something because I was told to. I listen to what I like.

With all that said......yo I'm really crying at Pac still being the best rapper, dude been dead for 15 years! How you still holding on to some fake studio gangster's weak rhymes all these years later?


As far as Kanye....MUSICALLY he's taken hip hop further than anyone else. On a mainstream success level, yes, the groundwork was already there with Interscope but Kanye has pushed the musical boundaries of hip hop since he entered the game and he's only gone further with it over time. Kanye is a musical genius, love him or hate him that fact cannot be denied.
how can you not like Pac? saying he went "thug" and fake yet, you like these clowns on the radio now?

I said Kanye has pushed the boundaries of music further than anyone else, something that practically every journalist and reviewer of his music has commented on, from Pitchfork to AllMusic to Rolling Stone to LA Weekly to everything. I'm clearly with the majority on that opinion.

I also mentioned how no one is telling me what to like, that I simply listen to what I like, which also is a pretty rational thing to do.


So where exactly do I live in my own world?
just keep agreeing with the websites and journalists and ya cant be wrong right?

This one of those "you don't agree with me so you're stupid" arguments...pointless, I don't like Pac, doesn't mean I'm any less of a rap fan, just means I have my own preferences.

He tried too hard. 2Pacalypse and Strictly was truth. I could feel his music then, I could feel his message, but after that he was trying so hard and it just sounded contrived to me. Plus I always considered him a much better poet/writer than an MC. His words were great, but he wasn't that great of a rapper.


And for me....it's just about good music. Good music is good music and Kanye makes good music. Pac hasn't made good music since before he died and I'm all set with consistently listening to old music when there's so much great new music out there.
Pac hasnt made good music since before he died??? wtf is that supposed to mean....you said you only liked his first 2 albums

Everyone got their own preferences. Listen to what you like and that's that.

And I cite journalists and sites because in 50 years that's the history that will be remembered.


I could get on here and say "Non-Fiction" by Black Sheep is the best album in rap history, but I'd be one of the only people saying that. Now I might believe that statement and I might stand by it, but that doesn't mean it's going to be an accepted fact in the general music listening public.

In the general public of people who listen to music (which you can call stupid or sheep or whatever, doesn't matter, the majority has influence) Kanye is the best musician in the game right now. Now yall don't have to agree with that and no one is stopping you from having your own opinions. But to say Kanye is total trash....you won't find many people who agree with you on that statement.

Best is an opinion...pure and simple....and i hate the way Kanye raps, never liked him... hes a producer imo, not a rapper... and i like good Jayz.....unfortunately, 90% of what he puts out is garbage imo....trust me, most of my friends love Jay so i know im alone there... and some like Kanye and some dont... just dont like his style at all...and him as a person, hes a jerk off

My thoughts exactly. Kanye is only a good producer. Not a double threat like Dre. Now I have previewed a couple of the Carter IV tracks and let me tell you. They should come in rock form...cuz they are dope

yeah, tech is a hometown favorite. Hes been around forever and Im glad to see him get some national recognition. There is a Wayne interview somewhere I saw where he says that no one he knew had ever heard of him, but as soon as he did he knew that he needed him on a track.

I respect wayne for his lyrical style. He will do an entire song or album that is line for line metaphor after metaphor. May be the same message recycled, but presented metaphorically entirely different. most rappers have too much filler and only can manage a decent metaphor every bar or 2. He has skill, but yeah his delivery is definately not for everyone.

OMG. Let's get this straight you think Kanye can't rap and Dre can. Dre needs people to write for him and most of the time he can't deliver. I would love to see if Dre could spit like Kanye does on Diamonds or Can't Tell Me Nothing. The closest Dre came to that was on Let Me Ride.

You must be right. Every real man/ganster rap enjoyer always uses the terms OMG and smilies. I am glad people like you don't like the same rappers I do...I'd feel a little loose in the backside..
