    They both drop mediocre lp's, and dope mixtapes. But I picked fab, cuz atleast he knows how to make hits.

    Listen to the music or shut up. This was a competition in the punchline era.
    Its not even close anymore. Its clearly Banks. Fab knows this and has pretty much said as much.
    Banks spits his B rhymes when they feature and Banks still gets him every time. Kanye got banks in his living top 5 for a reason.
    🤬 thats voting Fab aint listened to Banks in over 6 years.

    Rotten Apple was dope

    It was kinda like a Nas situation. 🤬 dropped It Was Written and after that he dropped I am and 🤬 was mad even if I Am ain't a bad album.

    But personally, I expected more of Banks I know he has potenial. I do not know if it's laziness, hell, it can not be because his mixtapes are better than his albums.

    Fab originated Banks' style & always stayed a step ahead of him. End of discussion.

    Tough. But maaaan...i never was a Banks fan. Then HFM2 dropped n it was my 🤬 .

    And now, that FNO blew my mind. He spit his ass off. Not just punchlines, but i felt the pain in that 🤬 lol

    Fab still cool and the Soul Tape series is still fire, but its moreseo the beats.

    Banks made me a fan on FNO. My favorite album or mixtape of the year.

    And low key, HFM2 was the modern day blueprint for how NY hip hop can win.

    Had non-pop, non-southern, non-cringeworthy but still radio friendly singles: Beamer benz n bentley, I dont deserve you, Start it Up, Any girl

    The rest was straight hip hop

    Fab, easy...Banks is nice and all but his voice is fuckery at times, Fab is an easier listen with a smoother delivery that even the casual hip hop fan can understand.

    Wit Lloyd u gotta lock the 🤬 in or else the 🤬 sounds like an average rapper, might even put u to sleep with his 🤬 .

    Like Nas, he just spews a whole lot of nothing at times, just a bunch of words but not really saying anything, pure filler bars....and there is no change of pace from the filler bars to the punchline...lotta times u miss the punchline.

    Fab's career >>>> Banks' career...one kept them self relevant (semi mainstream) for 13 years, the other fizzled out after 1 album....word.

    Even budden admitted on his forum banks spit better than him and they both beyond fab. Fab no better than he was in the 2000s and banks jumped to the eminem caliber of rhymes and flows.
