God tier rappers bread nigs
You can't say no about this deep down you know I'm right.
Godtier producer, most definitely.
Godtier rapper, FUCK and NO.
Kanye is possibly the worst rapper ever to be put on a label, even worse than riff raff.
Ain't no motherfucker wanting to hear that nigger rap, we want those phat beats.
That shit is garbage.
Listen to some Jedi Mind Tricks, Army of the Pharaoes, Tyler the creator, Del the Funky Homosapien, Madvillain, anything that is not lowest common denominator trash.
Riff Raff is objectively shit.
He is a white guy acting black for the money.
I have never seen a bigger try-hard faggot in my life.
His rapping is simple and his themes are cliches.
He is the generic option of rap artists.
u just dont get the man
ur obviously too young to probably know who fonzworth bentley is, or what show he made in order to exploit whom and who benefitted the most out of that fucking show
Yeah, but I also like songs by artists that are shit, just because they have one song produced by some super genius that didn't make them appear like the train wrecks they really are, does not mean that they are not really train wrecks.
Jarren benton and 3 stacks
If you don't know who 3 stacks is well...
Killer and El-P
Fuck boys know the combanation ain't healthy...
Don't fret little man, don't cry
They can never take the energy inside you were born with
Knowing that, understand you could never be poor
You already won the war, you were born rich
Killer mike is god
But El-P is a goldmine of feels
Yeah, Riff Raff was hardly even in that show, round two elimination.
Nigger, do you invent Riff Raff conspiracy theories to make your shit idol seem like he is not totally embarrassing to be a fan of?
>hardly even in that show
He made the show you fucking retard
He's the only one relevant out of all those rejects
He's also the only one to have succesfully survive through Soulja Boy's bullshit ass record label
Him being signed onto Mad Decent was a deserved one and Diplo knows it, the only person in this thread or anywhere that doesn't seem to get it is people like you
>people like you
People who have seen a million Riff Raffs come and go?
There is nothing special about Riff Raff other than how hard he wishes he was black, lil' reverse Michael.
>Jedi Mind Tricks/ Army of the Pharaohs
> fedora of rap
Older niggas - DOOM, Guru, Wu Tang, etc.
Understand what people like, which I respect, but idk if they can be called God tier because they lack technical skill/depth: Q, Drake, Big Sean, YG, Wayne (hasn't been relevant in years, tho), Sosa
>you forgot Pac/Biggie
To me, these guys are like most classic rock. I really appreciate what they did to the genre, but listening to them today and saying they're still the best is a joke. They're just too outdated. This goes for any real old guys
I'm probably forgetting lots but I'm hung over
>Implying Pac and Biggie have modern equivalents and that they are not still technically and lyrically brilliant.
Pac has some of the best lyrics and Biggie has one of the best flows to this day.
>Drake, Big Sean, YG, Wayne, Sosa
>implying these are not all mickey mouse club tier.
Out of the people I've heavily listened to, all of these are great :
Eminem, Kanye West, The Notorious BIG, Nas, Immortal Technique, Wu-Tang.
Beastie Boys, Tupac, Jay Z, Talib Kweli, Earl Sweatshirt, Hopsin, Tech N9ne.
Vince staples, NWA, Aesop Rock, Mos Def, Outkast, Atmosphere, MF Doom, DMX.
Termanology,IT, All the fuckers from AOTP, Slaine from La Coka Nostra, Dilated People, Deltron, Aesop Rock, Swollen Members, Neckbreakers, Slug from Atmosphere and the list is long.
I think the real hip hop heads would agree with these names.
MF doom, aesop rock, atmosphere, mos def, talib kweli, tech n9ne, hopsin, immortal technique.
>Even people who hate rap have listened to those heavily.
Are you even trying dude? even people who aren't rock fans still like the beatles and led zeppelin. And you can't just disregard popular artists as bad either.
He dominated hardcore hiphop after biggie and 2pac, his production is fucking great and he can appeal to most audiences. Remember that we're talking about best hip hop artists, not best raw rappers.
When I think "best hip hop artist" I don't think "made the most money selling records".
I think about who elevated the art form, who added new shit that became staples, who did something original, who has masterful technique, who makes actual lyrics and not just empty boasts to fill bars, that kind of shit.
DMX has none of that other than making barking noises and doing the same shit that everyone else was doing at the time.
You fucking pleb, he is a genius.
She 100% needs to be on the list. Greatest female in hip hop history. Two modern classics in Kala and Arular. Video related is also one of the greatest music videos I've ever seen.
Nas, Eric B & Rakim, Wu Tang, A Tribe Called Quest, OutKast, Boogie Down Productions, De La Soul, EPMD, Big L
Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino, MF DOOM, Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Logic, A$AP Rocky, Hopsin
Das EFX, Digable Planets, Souls Of Mischief. Binary Star, Black Moon
I knew that comment would come back to bite me, but I took a risk.
At least it wasn't "Snowgoons inspired\are AOTP" or some shit.
Still not better beats than what Kanye has made though.
I bet you like tons of songs that you didnt know were produced by kanye. He is one of the best producers in hiphop period. Every hiphop head knows that. Its all subjective though but still.
That must be why Snowgoons is one of the most successful rap acts of all time and Kanye is not.
Just because you like Snowgoon style beats, does not mean it is objectively better.
Look riff Raff is ment to be cliche stupid riff Raff aka jodie high roller used to be a comedian and one his acts was riff Raff then it started making money so he rolled with it...so no wonder its shit.
But on a foreal note god tier is hopsin. Swizzz. Eminem couldn't be touched back in the day. Bone things n harmoney. Rittz is good. As far as rapoing skills goes
Guilty pleasures include yelawolf and waka flocka
Kanye is one of the worst rappers of all time as I have stated earlier in the thread.
He does weigh up for it by making the best beats in the industry, which is why he is as big as he is.
Ask any rapper who makes the best beats and they will all reply Kanye.
One of the best rap albums of all time
Yea, i said before he's a good producer. But i like Snowgoons(it's just me) because most of their beats have that 90's sound to them, that old skool feel. Still consider the '' Get off the ground '' beat as one of the best.
You cant find a better lyricist than Tupac. He was the poet among MCs. Universities study his lyrics, including Harvard. You must be retarded to say he wasn't the greatest rapper of all time.
Im with u on this, The Love Below is fucking awesome
I agree 100%, anon. Problem with newfags today is that they equate a sick beat and the ability to make two random words rhyme somewhere in a song to being "god tier". Tupac actually wrote poetry to a beat that had meaning. Not like this random bullshit they have out today. Just try to read lyrics from rappers today and make sense of them... A joke.
old school ones I agree for the most part, new school nah Tyler the creator is overrated as fuck just because of his lyrics being "different" earl sweatshirt has a good flow but lyrics are the same as tyler overrated too. A$AP rocky? fuck you, one of the shittiest rappers out there, most of the ones you have quoted rap in such a way that the beat is more important than the lyrics in order for it to appeal to the masses, this is not fucking dance music. New school american rap is as shit as dance music only underground rap saves itself
It was just a diff breed of rappers back then. If you listen to the '95 freestyle with all the great ones on stage at once, that shit is the sickest thing. You had Biggie, you had Tupac, you had Big Daddy Kane, Scoob and a little kid with fucking sick rhymes name Shyheim.
Most rap isnt about the lyrics these days, its all about swag and shit. With the new skool rappers I mentioned, they have an awsome flow and awesome beats. Some of them got good lyrics but I mainly listen to them for the beats n flows.
The old skool rap how ever (which I mainly listen to) is all about lyrics. Beats and flows are important to but yea
Fuck off , Biggie was a bitch. Tupac got shot the first time and Biggie and Puffy started avoiding him. Pac let out Hit'em up and Biggie had nothing to come back with except a poor attempt at a diss.
