It just came to mind while watching B.E.T lol yeah i know...People discussed that Either Biggie or Tupac.I dont think Biggie was ever gonna be the greatest yes he had an amazing first album (ready 2 die) but when i picked up the 2nd 2 disc I thought horrible...He was transending into the whole Jiggy phase and in my opinion if he did stay alive he'd be where Diddy is right now..jiggy rapping..tupac on the other hand still is making music lol (remember the Dave Chapelle skit?) very poetic and real. Todays rappers Jay-z, Nas, Snoop all say they are...In my opinion I think one of the greatest would be KRS-ONE, Rakim,even DOOM since hes been in the game for decades and even coocooned from KMD days 2 the Metal Faced DOOM that we all know and love today.who do y'all think should be the G.O.A.T (S)

Im with Dres of the Black Sheep,

He wsa funny, intelligent, could tell great stories on so many levels, sex, crime, his own personal struggles, society, dude had it all, but he is probably one the most slept on ever.

yah man,
no doubht, its defn one of the most solid pieces of music ever. all the beats are funky, the rhymes are spunky...(oh wait thats ODB)

but you know what Im saying and half the reason its so good is because of Dres, I could sit there and listen to that guy all day.

as far as lyrics alone i think GZA has a big chance his rhymes are consistently good and creative same with doom.

KRS, Rakim & Doom are up there...I'm not sure about Dres, but I'd definitely add Guru from Gang Starr to that list.

Can't really think of ONE rapper who could be considered the GREATEST of all time...

impossible question

greatest group maybe i could do

at least then i could narrow it down to like Wu Tang, De La, Tribe and a couple other really good ones

but i can't confidently talk about KRS, Nas, Jay, Rakim, Doom or GZA as the greatest. individual greats come with so much to love it's impossible to decide

This question cannot be answered. But my faves are Guru, MF Doom, Lord Quas, etc... as you can see... these are my faves, but certainly not the "greatest".

Freddy Foxx!!!
































Yeah right. He's close to unlistenable besides that rhymin is a part of my life song.


I have nothing to add because I've never been good with favorites. I like so many for different reasons and there's more to come. That's just me. Even in kindergarden I could never pick a favorite color.
