When did Lil' Wayne become the king of Hip-Hop? - Page 3

post #31 of 62

its not like i never gave jay-z a chance. i was a fan but after listening to his music for years i came to a conclusion that he is not that great. As a mainstream radio rapper he might be one of the best but thats not good enough for me. i like more complete hip-hop artist.

I'm really digging drake right now. The Take Care album is truly exceptional. I love how he doesn't just rap about drugs and violence, he raps about feelings and his cold lonely life; a result of becoming famous. He reminds me of a musical therapist patient lol. biggrin.gif

Lil wayne also samples on I believe two of his tracks. HYFR and The motto. My least two fav songs. I know Lil wayne found drake but he should stay out of every one of his songs.

I think that Lil Wayne is largely overrated. Yes, the instrumentals he uses are great and he can pull off some sick rhymes... but I take the stance that washedupred takes on Jay-Z here. I think Lil Wayne's entire discography can be summized by the title of one of his tracks, "P-ssy, Money, Weed."

 

I also dislike Kanye both his personality and his music.

 

I've generally liked Jay-Z as I love his ability to rhyme and tell a full story throughout a song... I think that has been lost largely. Most artists now just seem to be looking for a good hook and hang on to it very hard.

 

Most underrated rapper -- Z-Ro. (Earlier music... Anything after his albums Crack or Cocaine I'm not really a huge fan of.) I love that Z-Ro isn't afraid to rap about the hard life being faced by the urban youth and the sad reality of betrayal, poverty, and violence. Maybe I'm biased being from Texas, but I'm definitely down with that Screwed Up Click. :P

I wouldn't want to be payed to listen to any of those jokes but that's just my opinion. And no I don't just like 90's "backpack" rap just most of the rappers I listen to don't happen to be on the radio to often...

 

Artists I like:

Nas

MF Doom and Grimm KMD of course 

Wu-Tang specifically GZA & Raekwon I like them a lot 

Spaceghostpurrp 

Bit of Lupe Fiasco mostly earlier stuff

A Tribe Called Quest

Jedi Mind Tricks

CunninLynguists

etc.

 

My point is it's all taste and opinion I can argue for hours why I believe lil wayne, bricksquad, odd future and wiz are cancer and shouldn't be considered Hip-Hop while some might say otherwise.

 

I don't think lil wayne is the king of hip-hop.

and Big K.R.I.T. is cool in my book he's making his name known in the game. 

 

I'm going to quote myself because I was sad that no one agreed with me or at least responded...

Only because Lupe was mentioned above...I've been extremely impressed with how prolific he has been...pretty quality stuff, though some songs are silly filler....

I don't really listen to mainstream rap and Lil Wayne is pretty much responsible for that... :)

I guess this is because of the constant emphasis of Lil Wayne being the "best rapper alive".

…geez, I get the "why" of the analogy, but perhaps it's a bit overstated for a music discussion? The consequences certainly aren't anywhere near analogous…

To the OP: you spelled Hip-Pop wrong in the title.

Looks like my reinforcements have arrived.

He's the best freestyler though... that is for sure.

I'd like to introduce the Drake contingent to my friend, our friend, Mr. Big Ghost Fase.

 

For the Lil' Wayne fans among us, I'd just like to point out that at various points throughout pop music's recent history, rappers such as T.I., Slim Thug, Rick Ross and a host of others have also been crowned Kings of Hip-Hop. 

 

Like most genres, good hip hop usually doesn't make it that far.  When it does, more often than not, you get Jay-Z, who just seemed to get worse as his fame increased.  That appears to be the endemic pattern of rap notoriety.

I still consider 'Only Built 4 Cuban Lynx' the best Rap album of all time. It's magic, for real.
