Lupe Fiasco (even though he has lost almost all the hype he had)
J.Cole

Have you heard Lupe's new

Have you heard Lupe's new song? Its pretty dope. And his "hype" is gone because they (His label) wont let him release Lasers yet which is &$#%#&@! alot of people off. He is still a good rapper to me. But the fact that his album hasnt dropped yet when it was supposed to be dropped last year is crazy.

Wale is a joke he is not even

Wale is a joke he is not even from DC most of the stuff he is sayin about how he was in the hood and all the people he knows is a lie. The pretty girls song is actually a gogo song by Backyard Band and the man who sings the hook is a gogo legend named Winsey and Wale didnt even put him in the video...

I dunno about all that other

I dunno about all that other stuff but Wale is a pretty good artist from what I hear.

He covered the song. Not a big deal in that aspect. I dunno about the whole video thing but it must'nt been a big deal since I didn't really hear alot about it.

Unlike most DC cats, I don't

Unlike most DC cats, I don't really like GoGo. I know if I said that in DC, I would probably get smacked. I go to a school in the DC area and all my friends love GoGo. I mean, a handful of GoGo songs are good, but I just don't like most of them. Rap/Hip-Hop is way better IMO.

J. Cole is probably the best

J. Cole is probably the best new rapper out there. Him, jay electronica, wale, Asher Roth, are all breaths if fresh air in the corrupted "hip hop" we've had till recently. Lupe is still the truth, I don't know how many of you heard his mixtape enemy of the state but it was easily the best mixtape of last year. He put that out because there were so many people almost feening to hear music from him. He actually is going to release an album called food and liquor 2 which is supposed to release next year web he initially said he was done after lasers. Eminem also re-established himself for what I believe to be the most talented rapper ever. That's no disrespect to nas, biggie, 2pac and all those guys I just think that when eminem is focused (and in recovery) he definitely was that, he could destroy anyone whether they were in their prime or not. And please anyone thinking of dissing eminem, just don't do it. It'll be better for us all. J. Cole and jay electronica I believe will be the best rappers though in the next year or two. Listen for them

You guys know what rapper is

You guys know what rapper is extremely underrated, its Curren$Y. His lyrics are better than most rappers and all his songs got good beats.

Here are the producers that produced Wale's Pretty Girls. You can find them on soundclick. They make some really tight GoGo beats.

Im late...but The Breakup

Im late...but

The Breakup Song, The War, The Breeze, and The Manipulation 2 were all dope.

imo, J. Cole is the best right now, and a few big steps ahead of everyone else.

+1 Wiz, Currensy gets slept on, big time.

I like these rappers that make sense when they put there words over a beat, none of that Soulja Boy, Wacka Flocka garbage.

@MagikKnick

I fully agree. Soulja Boy and Waka Flocka can't rap for $hit and are ruining hip-hop. Waka Flocka even said he doesn't care about his lyrics, he just cares about getting CruNK. That's ridiculous. I like rappers that have great lyrics. Rapping is supposed to be a talent. The stuff Waka Flocka and Soulja Boy say, I can say. That shows how little lyrical abilty they have. If I can say the stuff you're saying, then you're not talented at rapping.

Diary by Wale is one of the

Diary by Wale is one of the better songs any current artist can claim man...That song is the truth. Also, Shade with Chrisette Michelle is nice too. Wale is an above average rapper to me, I don't really care about personal stuff like if he really kills people, if he's really from D.C. etc etc...Good music is good music to me

Also, Lupe Fiasco and B.O.B are legit as well

I don't hate Flocka because

I don't hate Flocka because he came out and said "I'm not a lyricist" So that's good for me.

I think Wale is pushing man. I dunno if he top 10 but he's on that outside looking in..

Rick Ross is up there too. I don't like him all too much but EVERYONE says he's top 10 right now.

If your not a lyricist, why

If your not a lyricist, why are you rapping? It kind of defeats the purpose..

Wacka Flocka is nothing but a hypeman

Have you guys heard Short Bus

Have you guys heard Short Bus Shawty? It's compiled with all of the rappers that ruined hip-hop. And I really like Waka Flocka's part. After watching this video, you'll know that I'm being sarcastic.

My favorite rappers are

My favorite rappers are Prodigy from Mobb Deep, T.I., pre-808 Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Common, and Nas.

I personally feel that Prodigy is/was the most underrated MC out there. He didn't have crazy punchlines that most people would look for, but he ould tell stories and he was really descriptive in his lyrics. "Hell on Earth" and "The Infamous" are Prodigy at his best, even though that is mid-90's music

BRICK SQUAD! Jk. Anyways why

BRICK SQUAD!
Jk.

Anyways why you hyped up for TM 103. If he keeps droppin songs like All White everything then I'll stop listenin to Jeezy.

Drake is good but he getting into singing now which is pointless because he has a nice flow imo.

Rick Ross sucks. Point Blank.
I'd still take 50 cent over his ass.
Btw,listen to Problems, Lights Please, Can I live, Blow Up, and Who dat by J. Cole.

This week i've been kind of listening to Cudi alot with Mojo So dope, Mr. Rager, and Wylin Cuz im young.

My favs are Cudi, Cole, Cassidy, Lupe, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Drake and B.o.B

Wale's new mixtape is pretty

Wale's new mixtape is pretty dope, better than his album which was a dissapointment. Also check out the mixtape he put out with 9th Wonder (Wale's best work so far IMO). I like him he's overrated though If I hear him refered to as the savior of Hip-Hop one more time I will choke a &$#%#&@!.

Heres a new artist for everyone who hasn't heard him: Danny Brown. He's from Detroit. He's kinda on some gangsta &$#%#&@!, but his voice and flow is super unique, and his lyrics are extremely funny and clever. Some songs to check out are...Check out his song called Cyclopse, and his albums/mixtapes you can find em for free online. Trust me you will like him he's like a breath of fresh air for real.

Idk i can't hate on waka

Idk i can't hate on waka flocka and soulja boy too much cause if youre in the club that stuff just gets you amped man.

that being said, listening to that stuff on the radio is pretty wack. Soulja Boy and Waka Flocka are god awful lyricists.

Im not gonna spit a top 10 or anything but I love Kanye man. He is a great lyricist imo.

I also love listening to Common.
