Youre on dope. Its top 10, but by no means does it deserve to occupy the top 5 slots. Nas is amazing, but Biggie wins, sorry bro.
Yes I am ready for this battle.
Biggs is better from a lyrical point of view... Pac is better from an expansive point of view..his music dealt with heart felt matters and his persona of being a bad ass furthered his music..Bigg had a better flow, more lyrical..definitely a better battle rapper.. Tupac was a deep thinker that could relay that on paper..if it was a pure battle based on who could out do who lyrically in a battle.. biggs would win 9.5/10.. Tupac was just real in his music and poignant in the delivery of his struggles, which is beautiful.. but if I were to choose a person to battle then I'd pic Pac any day.. I would stand a better chance against him then biggie
I was going to respond with a disertation on why Illmatic will forever be the canon for a Hip-Hop classic... but then I got lazy... all I will say is... IT IS ILLMATIC BRO
yeah Biggie is better than Nas... I agree there... but Illmatic is better than anything Biggie made. Ready to Die is obv no 2...
my top 14
cuz Cypress Hill is actually great...
To me either Rakim or Biggie earn the top spot but I won't be mad if anyone has the following over them
Plus Ed Kool Keith, Kool G Rap and BDk had good to great albums... shit BDK could be considered top 5. (Yes I know he had some terrible albums but his great stuff is up there)
