Eminem's album is decent, I

Eminem's album is decent, I havn't heard the Drake yet. I was still dissappointed with Recovery, he wen't way too commercial IMO. I do not want to hear Pink or Rhianna singing on a Eminem track. Almost all the songs have a poppy feel too them that almost ruins the album. It's a good thing he came hard on the mic, otherwise it would be garbage. I like that Seduction track, On Fire, Changes, WTP, and thats about it.

Eminem is still the best rapper in the game tho. Some other good ones that nobody has mentioned are Tech N9ne ( dude flows his ass off), pretty much all of Slaughterhouse (who just signed with Shady Records btw), especially Royce the 5'9 and Joey Ortiz. Everybody check out the Bar Exam 3 mixtape, it goes super hard. E-40 spits as well, his new one is good too.

Wale', Wiz Khalifa , J.Cole, Lupe, B.o.B and Kid Cudi (he's really raw talent right now) are the future.

I feel that Prodigy of Mobb

I feel that Prodigy of Mobb Deep is a darkhorse for best rapper ever. Or he would've been, had he not sucked after Jay-Z put that pic up of him in 2001 SummerJam

Okay, if I had to listen to 5

Okay, if I had to listen to 5 rappers for the rest of my life it would be these 5, actually 6.
Nas
Big L (RIP)
Tupac
Kool G Rap
Eric B and Rakim
KRS-ONE

No one right now, and probably not for a whole will be near those guys.

NYCrealdeal, I do enjoy IT,

NYCrealdeal, I do enjoy IT, but he is not on the same level as those guys. Very talented though. I kind of wish the judge who sentenced lil wayne to jail kept him in jail longer due to being a terrible rapper. I mean he is soooo bad. I can do exactly what he does. His rap is all similes. I am like _____ is how he starts stuff.

If Big L, BIG, and Tupac were

If Big L, BIG, and Tupac were still alive they would probably kill themselves if they knew that lil wayne was a popular rapper, and considered a great one.

None of ems songs are really all that commercial... i dont think any of them will be played on the radio-- wont back down with pink might be the worse one on the album---the one with rihanna isnt bad and fitting considering what the songs about

Most of the songs on the

Most of the songs on the album are commercial sounding, at least way more than any other album. Over half the songs have a hook sung by an some type of rnb singer or what not....Wack...especially that song with Weezy on it. That should have been one of the bests moments of the album instead they decide to sample that stupid song from Night At the Roxbury.

Nobody mentioned Little

Nobody mentioned Little Brother. In case you don't know about them, they were a hip-hop group from North Carolina. "The Minstrel Show," "The Chittlin Circuit" and "The Listening" are all amazing albums.

I liked the song Watch Me from the Minstrel Show.

I forgot to mention K-OS. After Lupe and NaS, K-OS is my favorite rapper.

I listened to rap back when I

I listened to rap back when I was in high school such as Master P and just about everyone involved with him. Huge Eminem fan, especially the first two albums. I don't even listen to rap anymore though, all rock music.

Spencer is Hawesome

I respect your opinion man. Nah, I am not big into rap, but I atleast gave it a try, and people like Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Tupac, Eazy E, I have respect for and enjoy some songs. I respect people who atleast make beats and write intelligent lyrics and are not just popular because of popular opinion but have talent. I am not an Eminem fan, but I admit, atleast he has originality and his music, and is not like "everybody else". But I respect your opinion and I get what you are saying about getting disappointed when comparing to legends, and I respect that you would give them a listen and not just be closed minded like most people. That's a very good trait for life to not judge a book by it's cover and I respect you for it man.

Even though...

Even though I don't like Eminem, I have respect for him. He is being himself, which is a human being, and a lot of his songs he will mention that life has it's downs as well, and not just ups. He is a REAL person, and even though I don't really like his music or lyrics, he is still being REAL, and I respect him for that. But now, people like Lil' Wayne and stuff that just wrap about how amazing they are and just brag and brag and brag, I have no respect for whatsoever, because to me, they don't seem like REAL people. They seem ignorant and arrogant, and they forget the place they came from, and how rough life used to be if they really went from rags to riches. If you are rich and wealthy, the more power to you and congratulations, but there is no need to brag about how rich you are. That is just annoying in my opinion, if it is in a rap song, or just a rich person that you are conversating with in the regular everyday world.
