    ^^This is why nobody takes your opinion on rap music seriously.

    Then round two, I got ya Geedorah. And I ain't even saying somedoy's got to win. But just acknowledge that there are artists alive as good as artists dead. I'm not saying 3000 is better than Pac, I'm just saying, they are both as good in different lanes. But aight, here comes round two brotha, just so I let you know:

    Big L vs Ras Kass
    Proof vs Masta Ace
    Nate Dogg vs Mary J. Blige

    if it wasn't for proof, eminem wouldn't have made it as big as he did.

    proof > eminem.

    already mentioned.

    but i get your point, all i needed was to mention dilla, game over.

    Big L vs Rassy..... what are we judging here? THAT is the question.

    Nate Dogg vs Mary J. Blige..... she got hits but not nearly as many as Nate. also, i'm a male so imma ride for hommie. she was ill, no doubt though.




    bull muthafuckin shit. we don't know that. regardless if it's true or not, Em is waaaaaaay better than Proof. out of most dead rappers, i honestly think Proof gets more praise over that fact rather than the fact he has some of the "dopest skills ever". he was good and did his role but you can't compare him to Em. you can't.









    Em is arguably top 10 of all time.

    Nate Dogg always will win for me, when its about hooks.
    Big L didnt have many songs, Rass wins, Ace wins, if L and Proof had more albums, think they might win.

    You telling me game,asap or fab should be mentioned in the same breath as pac or big? Really?...i got 3 fab and 3 game albums, they used to be some of my favourite shit but there are far better living artists than either of them and the dead artists listed are certainly better. Lets not get started on average as fuck asap.

    I think there are more good living artists, theres some really dope dead artists but there are just too many really nice living mcs.

    Dilla is better than el p but hes not better than premo or alch etc.

    One thing I always think about is how sound quality has changed over years. I hear old songs and they dont have that same feel imagine how bit voices like pac and big would deliver now? Pacs delivery would run shit especially when a lot of music now is about how u say it not what u say. I just think pac would kill shit now with presence alone
