nobody is saying that lupe aint top 5..
but wayne has a grammy for best rap album, and other grammies
wanye has arguably the most hits of any rap artist in history(created on his own or co-wrote)
wayne has respect of rap's elite class (eminem, talib, jay-z, kanye, etc)
but waynes haters are internet rap fans... WHO FEEL THEY RULE ON WHAT IS GOOD MUSIC..
i think Lil wayne deserves his due respect... hes done alot in this music industry and has the money, power and respect...
i dont see what the haters are hating on... DO YALL ONLY LISTEN to lyrical rappers?!? yall never like to listen to club music?!?
Theres A LOT of people that dont go on forums and s**t that do not like Wayne
the reason that people do not like Lil Wayne is because he is a complete shift from the "Golden Era" of rap music style, lyricism being the most significant change
People like Lupe, Nas, and Eminem for this reason
and YES, people do like to listen to Lil Wayne when they in the club...they also like to listen to Soulja Boy, D4L, or any other artists that can make songs to dance to...s**t a n*gga dont even have to rap these days to make a good club record (check Kanye West).
