  • Re: RA The Rugged Man: LL Cool J is a Better Rapper Than 2Pac

    Pac is cemented as the GOAT because he died at the top of his game. If LL would have died in his prime he would be a much bigger legend. However, Pac was an actor and that did not seem to diminish his "rap status" the way it did for other rappers.

    Pac ain't the GOAT of shit. People who think so are victims of marketing and advertisement or on some west-coast bias shit.

    The easiest way to see if someone is a real fan of rap is to ask for that top 5. If you see a bunch of dead rappers, keep it moving.

    Prime LL was a complete monster. He laid out the blueprint for everyone trying to do the commercial ladies shit, and was the MC's emcee. At the top of his game, this dude took on lyrical giants like Canibus and Kool Moe Dee, and came out unscathed. At that same time, he had the ladies rubbin' on their titties in the strip club. That's unheard of and still hasn't been replicated.

    Alot of rappers are better than Pac from a technical stand point but as an artist he second to none in hip hop.

    Nas
    Mos Def
    KRS-One
    Slick Rick
    MF Doom
    Ice Cube
    etc.

    A few rappers off top that are/were every bit as artistic as Tupac. Especially when factoring in things like beat choice, concept albums and other various forms of creative/artistic expression. Y'all need to stop with this second to none hyperbole talk. Pac was good, but chill.

    I can't think of one aspect of rap that LL is better than Pac in. Not flow, content, hits, nothing.

    Stop. LL in his prime flowed much better than Pac, had better wordplay, vocab, delivery, punches etc. LL was also more versatile, he could cover more range. He'd hit the world with the "I Need Love" shit and then you'd hear him ripping Canibus and whoever else apart on a diss track.

    How? Pac is the epitome of range. Dude covered the whole spectrum

    You can go from Changes to Hail Mary to Dear Mama to Brenda's Got a Baby to White Manz World to Wonda Why They Call U Bitch to Keep Ya Head Up to How Do U Want It.

    The list goes on and on. Actually so much so niggas would say Pac was a huge contradiction. No the nigga was human and had emotions just like everyone else.

    But that's just how I see it.

    How is that more range than I Need Love to Pink Cookies to Jack The Ripper to I Shot Ya? Especially if we're talking sonically.

    Most of those Pac songs you listed can be placed under the label of conscious rap or introspection. And a lot of Pac's shit has that same kind of gloomy vibration.

    what did the KKK do?

    tell/show me how Blacks are oppressed!

    I'm a millennial, I dislike labels!

    I don't see color! But Blacks are more likely to shoot cops than cops are to shoot them!

    Everything she said, just wow @ all of it.

    There's nothing to "wow". How she feels is how a lot of people feel and her narrative needs to be addressed and taken seriously. White people in her position are truly ignorant to what's going on with non-whites, and they will never truly comprehend the reality of the situation. Why? Because the media and white historians will never push the truth, and people like her are going to take their word over "some black person's word".

    Instead of calling people like her dumb, others need to break down the truth in a language she can understand and present it to her. Her take on something she's not personally going through is of no different tone than the next mans. Trust me, you and many others sound the same exact way when discussing things you have no experience on.

    If I told you to fix Asian American problems in this country, you wouldn't know how to because you're naive to what their experience in this country. And that goes for any other group other the one you belong to or have close relations with.
