    Here's how it goes: Name which year you think the rapper the post above yours reached and mention WHY, then drop a rapper for the next poster to do.

    I'll start:

    Canibus

    Canibus reached his lyrical peak before his 1st album came out, when he was on mixtape cuts like DJ Clue's "Fantastic Four," or on The Firm's "Desperados." So yeah, whatever year that was. Basically I think Canibus, if he does a guest spot where he can put all his fire into one verse, is just ridiculously sick. When he has to make an ALBUM, with complete songs and entertaining songs, he fails.

    Next up: Andre 3000

    Marshall Mathers LP. Since then he's seemed to go for the more radio-friendly stuff, which is weird because if you saw the VH1 show on the making of Marshall Mathers LP, he said he didn't want to do radio stuff at that point.

    okay.....Juvenile

    What's up?


    Tough call. He has always been amazing, but maybe "Aquemini"? It's harder to say with BIG than Andre, because Andre noticeably fell off.

    Bun B hit his peak on "Big Pimpin," how about that?

    Ghostface hit his on his 1st solo album, but to be honest, I've never really understood that nicca. Next...

    (Cormega noticeably hit his lyrical peak with his release "The Realness")

    Jadakiss, kiss tha game goodbye...its weird because hes always been one of my favorite rappers, but he shines on other peoples shit more than he does on his own...and kiss of death he was trying way too hard to be a conscious lyricist and he sounded dumb

    Scarface was already mentioned. And whoever answered was right, he's still in his prime. Check the verse from "Declaration of War" from The Foundation:

    It's the return of the murderer, maniac madman
    The fully automatic M-11 in the handbag
    The ending of it, the beginning of the Baghdad
    Your brains blowed out, body in a trash bag
    Unidentified, chalk him up a John Doe
    Got most of the pieces, but they ain't found his arms though
    It's far from a record, I'm different than these rap dudes
    A real *****, won't hesitate to clap fools
    Ski-mask you, come up to where you lay at
    Cock back, squeeze, and put him where your face at
    The nerve of you *****z, believin I'ma play games
    You know who I'm wit, so I ain't gotta say names
    {*blam*} you pussy, {*blam*} cause you a black Jew
    Ain't never had love for y'all, make me clap you
    And it's a done deal, don't fuck with what the truth is
    And hide behind that motherfuckin desk but when the truth's here
    it's on for ya, that mean your lifeline shortens
    Death to the *****z who disrespected the Jordan
    I'm not a pop *****, fuck what radio say
    Fuck what video do, but this is all day
    hood *****, I ain't gotta show you what my life like
    Cause you don't persecute a motherfucker like Mike
    I ain't a house ***** scum like you fools is
    I was bred born and raised in this true shit

    Next up......DMX
