    Well I saw the favorite Band thread and I decided to see what kind of rappers you guys listen to. Anyway my favorite rapper is Lupe Fiasco, he has a lot of purpose to his lyrics and is probably the most inspirational MC in the game today. Plus he uses a higher level of vocabulary than most rappers.(Side note:I saw a word Lupe used on the SAT, Emaculate)

    LOL! However he did show a pretty good flow in that parody of Chamillionaire's "Ridin Dirty". He actually isn't half bad, but I don't consider him a rapper. Very funny though:lol: :lol:

    Yeah, I think after "The Massacre" 50 cent died. Which is sorta symbolic considering it was a massacre on his career.

    Kayne West hands down, the only rap/hip-hop artist I actually listen to.

    I believe a lot of people will say Kanye West, because even though he is a hip-hop artist at heart, he takes a lot of influence from rock music and classic jazz in his beats and melodies.

    Kanye West, though not necessarily "hands down" for me. I still listen to Eminem's Greatest Hits album to this day, along with a few songs from Lil Wayne and P. Diddy on my iPod's Most Played playlist. Usually anything Timbaland helps build is pretty good, too.

    I like rap, but I have a really hard time finding consistent artists that put together albums that are good from start to finish (Kanye West's last album probably being the only "full" album I sorta enjoyed). Most of the time I just enjoy 1 or 2 tracks, then the rest of the album is pretty much trash. I especially have a dislike for those that must put "skits" on their cd's just to fill up space.

    Eminem is the true rapper here, since almost every other rapper just says "oh" "what?!" "ok!" instead of actually talking/singing, that or they do it too slow.

    alright about time...good thread Dzapper...but lupe fiasco?? u gotta be kiddin.
    Greatest rapper of all time is Biggie hands down, and i only say that cuz im from BK too...lol..but honestly he is. But Tupac was excellent as well, very poetic.

    Now for the whole Kanye and 50 thing...1st off it was to sell records, i mean they tour together along with Jay Z. And Kanye as a "rapper" does not even come close to 50...50 is far more talented then kanye....listen to the lyrics not just the hook....thats wat people are so hooked on now a days is the hook. Lyrics and puttin it together smoothly is wat makes a great song.

    My favorite mainstream artist would be Tupac, but he's dead, so I'd have to go with Bone Thugs. I hardly listen to mainstream, so my real top artist would goto Jedi Mind Tricks, aka Army of the Pharaohs. AZ is also a brilliant rapper.. ever since Doe Or Die and A.W.O.L.

    NaS, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Slick Rick, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, in no specific order. I'm surprised nobody has said Lil' Wayne yet. Ironically enough, I thought his name would be all over this thread, good to see that it's not though (T.I. either)...
