    SCARFACE yes
    Jay yes
    TREACH nah
    PUBA one good solo album, one classic Brand Nubian album, and a some great BN albums
    RHYMEFEST no way, he has done nothing to prove himself
    TIP he was good, and hurts me to say this because he used to be one of my favorites...but...close but no cigar Q Tip
    BUN B no
    KOOL G yes
    DRES no...one classic album does not equal the a goat status
    DOC no, but maybe he could have been
    VANILLA ICE lol
    CHUBB ROCK no
    CHUCK D yes
    LL no
    Melle Mel yes

    Who I would add to this list is Posdnuos aka Plug One and GZA and Andre 3000...
    LL is the first goat sorry.

    Pos is dope. But, Cmon son Slick Rick is goat status for the simple fact he so creative and his style has been bitten by a who's who od MC's. Ghostface, Redman, Nas, Biting ass Jay Z, Snoop, Big , Dres, etc.

    A dope MC is a dope MC regardless to albums released.

    I"m not saying he's not dope...only a fool would say that....but the album represents your work...and he only has one good album. He is creative and if you say who is the best story teller...by far it's Ricky...but overall complete emcee? He's close...but just below the notch.

    Must be something to the East Coast bias thing. My partner says the same thing. I think it is because for so long there was a continental step your rap game up in every place except the East with a few exceptions.

    AZ, Rass Kass, Ghost sound the same on every song. Dre belongs so does Big Boi and Black Thought. Don't feel Lupe. Now Jay Electronica, that dude is the only reason I haven't given up on the new stuff. Question why does Rass Kass sound like he doesn't listen to the beat when he rhymes?


    Rass doesn't always ride the beat well, but you have to admit his body of work( along with Unreleased Van Gogh and The Golden Child) is very impressive. i don't agree that rass sounds the same on every song, now Az has this problem from time to time.

    Black Thought imo doesn't have enough solo material and Big Boi is good not great. Whats wrong with Lupe? Enemy of The State was a good mixtape and his older material is close to being classic.

    I forgot 1 artist Talib Kweli. Now Kweli is definitely top 10 or 12. i might have to revise my top 20.

    I used to think Ether was better than Take Over, but in hindsight...Take Over is a much better song. When I listen to Ether now the beat is really annoying, but Nas does go tough on Jay...Until, you put in the Take Over and all that hype ends.

    I know he had to dig PE since he was up in Do The Right Thing kicking it to Michelle.

    Ether's the GOAT diss track but Takeover is a better overall song w/ a better beat.

    It was a great diss track but in my humble opinion I wouldn't even say it's the GOAT diss track...there were many harder disses than Ether and Takeover...for one...Common's "The bitch in you" or KRSONE's "The Bridge is Over." That's just two off the top of my head.

    Lupe is mad lyrical but he grates. On me sometimes. It his voice. Sound like my little Brother pre puberty. Common used to do that to me also.

    Oh I forgot Ceelo is great with a Capital G. Thought is in a league of his own on the lyric tip. Kweli is trash, I aint never like him he was lucky to have Hi tek and Mos Def in his corner....................sike . He is dope I would put him my top 25 and top 5 conscious spitters.

    Top 10 to ever wield a MIC Not in any particular order.

    KRS
    NAS
    RAKIM
    CUBE
    SLICK RICK
    BIG
    KANE
    EMINEM
    PAC
    SCARFACE

    Good list. :tu lol @ Em....h-rap feel betrayed

    my 10 -

    Pac (the GOAT, most versatile ever)
    Rakim (the Wilt Chamberlain of MCing, LIGHT YEARS ahead of his time)
    Biggie (simply incredible to this day, i feel sorry for Big haters. Ready to Die is the GOAT rap album. had he lived, he'd be RUNNING shit....Big over early Timbaland & Neptune beats? curtains)
    Jay (even his worst albums have a handful of masterpieces, i can see him droppin classics @ age 55 like Bob Dylan....when he dies its very likely he'll take Pac's spot as the consensus GOAT)
    Nas (I wonder who will make more classic LPs this decade, him or Jay?)
    KRS (The Teacha.)
    Ghostface (Do niggas realize this man dropped 7 back-to-back classics in one decade? That's Prince/Stevie Wonder level genius. Robert Christgau, the king of snob music critics, *LOVES* Ghost and has given ALL of his albums "A" ratings.)
    Ice Cube ('88-'93 Cube obviously....on AmeriKKKa Most he blended the thug and conscious vibes better than anyone else, even Pac & KRS.)
    Scarface (I barely listen to his music, so this is straight respect for the non-snitchin King of the South)
    Chuck D (my childhood hero, I don't care what you think about Chuck D. I really don't.)

    Honorable Mentions:

    Big L (such a shame, only completed 1 retail album, but his storytelling skills were fucking mindboggling. Could've challenged Slick Rick for the storytellin crown. Woulda been making classic LPs w/ Just Blaze and Kanye had he lived to sign w/ the Roc. Shoulda, woulda, coulda. Such a tragedy...)
    Eminem (needs to stop bullshittin, tell Jimmy Iovine to go fuck himself, and make that masterpiece album we're still waiting for)
    Big Daddy Kane (I hate how his voice changed. Long Live the Kane BDK was amazing.)
    Slick Rick (GOAT Storyteller)
    Royce da 5'9 (incredible, the only MC to outspit Em, the most consistent member of Slaughterhouse, and the most underrated doubletime flow in hip-hop.)
    Common (couple years ago I was convinced that he was gonna make 3 more "Be" level albums w/ Kanye and force his way into my Top 10. Instead this nigga goin Hollywood, smh)
    Big Pun (Capital Punishment is a classic, but latinos need to stop w/ that "its better than Ready to Die" blasphemy. 2nd album was MEH w/ 2 classic singles.)
    Joe Budden (Fuck your hate for his twitter beefs. There's a reason this man was like GOD in The Reason from 05 to 07. The only, and I mean only, rapper that can do a 8+ minute solo song without the ish getting dull. Incredible versatility, he can rip the shit out of a punchline freestyle, and spit pain-filled confessional rap with staggering ease. Constantly starts shit with other MCs because he knows he's that nice.)
    Pharaoh Monch
    Kool G Rap
    Redman
    Canibus when he isn't wack as fuck
    Mos Def when he isn't bullshittin with his wack rock bands
    Cam'ron (hate away...Killa. Dipset fool. Wordplay is oh so underrated, forget that puters putin line and listen to the nuclear fire he's spittin on "Why They" sometime. When he focused - watch out.)
    LL

    why must you continue to say things that make me so angry? time to repeatedly play "Jesse James" on my mp3-playing machine and forget about all these troubles.

    and for the record, the greatest beat on the Fix was produced by China Black. i'm just saying.
