    Streetdreams, that's a good assessment. 8th to 12th place is where many people have put him in.

    this is my top ten (in order):

    1- Nasty Nas
    2- Rakim the God MC
    3- Notorious
    4- Tupac
    5- Jay-z
    6- KRS-ONE
    7- Q-tip
    8- eminem
    9- common
    10- ice cube


    I would have put mobb deep and Wu-tang in the list but they are groups.

    3. "your lines is too used like that auto tune ****"- AND THE DUDE IS USING AUTOTUNE!!!!!

    4. If you want to fit in with the crowdhomeboy's doing it.

    3. the phrase itself "still fly" is overused all by itsellf. if there are any rappers on this forum whos not MSG, myself, or Sly, yall should know and yall better know, be original.

    i dont know as much as you guys (SLY, streetdreams, etc.), but this review is pretty much dead on. ill admit i thought the kid was a joke at first look, but he does have talent. i agree almost completely with streetdreams. id give him a 3/5 though.

    Thank you. 3 would have been my 2nd thought. dudes 15, he still has potential. but man, its ok to write a songl ike that, but you have to be original. damn actually, i keep it a 2, because Drake wrote the chorus and original song, i didnt realize it was a cover, thats whyi keep it a 2.5.

    "haters this, hater that"
    -yawnnn-




    and uhmm, did you call me sweetdreams?!?!?!?

    To me, that **** was garbage. He sounds like the wack rappers that are out now. Not original at all. Clearly he idolizes the **** that's out these days.


    it's very simple. if you're influences are ****ty rappers, then you will become a ****ty rapper.

    Yeah, that is true. No matter when genre, you always sound like your inspirations. I honestly think my own style sounds alot like Big L, Nas, and Common, three of my biggest inspirations that made me want to pick up a pen and write.


    ALso, i think intellectuality should be common in rap. All these rappers ran out of ideas of have none. I hate to admit it, but Lil Wayne before 2006 was decent. Then the media took over and made him the hip pop king. And soulja boy, making millions to say TURN MY SWAG ONNNN YOUUUUUU!! Smart rappers have more ideas, and know exactly what they're doing. For example, in school, Nas said himself that he sucked at everything except reading and writing. ( cant remember which site).

    That explains alot, doesn't it?

    We need smart rappers to come out and burst on the mainstream, it cant stay underground. Hiphop needs a new movement. i cant stand this stuff,

    I don't see why a MC gotta be judge on his back ground.

    Q-Tip Eminem and Common on a top ten is questionable.

    knickzrulezH20, no one can destroy Hip Hop since its a culture within. You live it or you don't.

    Can he water down the quality of rap entertainment?
    Yes.
    The watering down of rap has been exclusive since Pun's death.



    Heres whats in my list
    Beatnuts
    Big Pun
    Busta Rhymes
    Company Flow
    Dead Prez
    Del
    DMX
    Heiroglyphics
    Eric B and Rakim
    Fabulous
    Fat Joe(90's ****....you guys stay ****ing sleep...too attached to TRL's/BET's top 10)
    Gangstarr
    Grandmaster Flash
    Ice
    Immortal Technique
    Jay-Z
    KRS One
    Ludacris
    Lox
    Mystikal
    Mobb Deep
    Nas
    NWA
    BIG
    Outkast
    Pharcyde
    Planet Patrol
    Royce 59
    Souls of Micheif

    These are 2 great songs:



    It's Dark and Hell is Hot is one of the greatest albums ever. DMX is underrated, IMO.

    Him and Nas make a good duo:


    They should make a cd together.

    Always loved my hip-hop music although must admit I'm slowly drifting away from it as it hasn't got that feel to it anymore.

    The 90's was easily the best era of hip-hop, so many big names who rapped and sang about 'real' issues with the main focus on flow and rhyme. These days its just rappers peddling the same old **** (The mainstream ones anyway), but I suppose that's the business it has become.
