Internet tough guys..whoa....

EDIT: And where did I talk reckless? You are some random one guy declaring that Ross has no great albums, as if it's music law. You are the one talking reckless. I simply stated that, your opinion isn't the end all be all, and there and enough reviews that dispute your claims. Stop trying to be so tough on the keyboard b.
yall n*ggas pissin me off puttin words in my mouth n sh*t. I don't got a problem with none of these n*ggas except the beat thief they call Timbaland and y'all keep replyin to me with that bullsh*t like I'm attackin Ross. There is no reviewer praising any Rick Ross album like it's great. Nobody callin his music classic. Come on man you can wiki all these albums and see what reviewers rate them

)

Kanye West has great albums. Rick Ross doesn't. Doesn't mean he's bad, a GREAT album is rare, especially these days.

wait so you think he is better than biggie because of the beats he used?


like biggie had bad beats?



I think ross is a more complete artist, yes. Ross is known for his attention to detail on his songs. Diddy created the notorious kony character including beats.

I think people under estimate rozays ability, but the whole indutry seems to recognize it. Ross surpasses big imo, because he is more of a complete artist, when you add his ear for beats.
This right here is the epitome of the new wave of fans. Ross surpasses BIG cause of his goddamn ear for beats. Nevermind that BIG never had to be confined to the "great production" labeling because of his uncanny ability to tell a vivid story, ridiculous versatility, emaculate flow, lyrical genius amongst other things. But hey, all those don't even compare to the complete artistry of picking a good beat. Jesus.

Im pretty sure Timbo produced multiple songs for BIG that just didn't make the album... Your still right though!
unless he tried to make some sh!t for l.a.d that didn't make it then he didn't produced anything for him when he was alive. the 1st rap album he started doing stuff for was missy and that was in 97

so because diddy was good at his job at being an executive producer that means that ross is a better rapper..... is that what you're saying.....

I swear this forum is retarded.

No sh*t Ross is NOT better than BIG lyrically... im pretty sure he'll even tell you the same. When Diddy, Cease, Timbo etc compare Ross to BIG they are talking about the way Ross carries himself, his approach to music, how fans are responding to him etc.

Keep in mind ALL of these people worked and were around BIG, so when they speak on the similarities they are prb. speaking from how Ross REMINDS them of BIG's aura... that energy that Ross currently has can DEFITNETLY be compared to BIG.

Timbo worked with BIG?....Anyhow, Big was a young reckless and very talented dude who lived every single bar he rapped about. That alone puts them on different lanes. No disrespect to Ross, but he'll never be half the artist BIG was. He's a great copy at best.

Listen brother


U are entitled to ur opinion and Im not trying to change that, but it sounds like you are not all the way familiar with Ross' contribution to hiphop MUSICALLY. ROSS CAN RAP just as well as Biggie did. I personally prefer Ross to Biggie because IMO Ross CAN craft SONGS better than Biggie could. Ross has better beat selection, and Ross IS STILL ALIVE and adding to his legacy.

Y'all need to stop acting like we're comparing Big to Lil B or some other gimmick rapper with no talent(cough cough Curtis cough) this is a valid comparison. Biggie was not on Lupes or Nas' level lyrically, he was never that nice. Y'all just overrate the hell outta Biggie.......
Contribution to Hip-Hop? You mean Gunplay, Torch & all these other rappers who want to recreate BMF?

Preference is cool and all I can't knock you for that. I love blasting Rick Ross' records, they're good but I've never been taken on a "journey" with his music. He's not that good at painting pictures like Biggie. Again, I might be wrong, I'm speaking about his album material. You posted a great song which reminds me of Biggie's lyricism but there isn't a lot of that on his albums. I've vibed to his music but I never "felt" it.

I never felt Rick Ross' hunger. I never felt his pain. Biggie was great at doing this. My Downfall, JUICY, Suicidal Thoughts, Everyday Struggle, Sky's The Limit are only a few of songs of BIG I felt. I know someone will jump out and say "OH he lied on Juicy about this and that" but his lyrics seem far more believable and honest. Rick Ross is great at rhyming words together but he is not as good as a story teller at all. I guess if rhyming and slick lines are what you into you'd choose Rick Ross, but his lyrics seem so emotionless compared to BIG's.

sit down. nobody said I'm mad at the comparisons I can give a fu*k, Rick Ross isn't the next Biggie and sales and his impact show that. Rick Ross has NO great albums. Every one of them got a good track here and there and a bunch of fillers. Big was what 22 when he dropped Ready to Die? Rick Ross was damn near 2x his age when his first CD drops and it doesn't even deserve to be recognized with his posthumous material. Voletta Wallace her damn self can tell me Rick Ross is the next BIG and I wouldn't take it seriously, why? because his music says otherwise. and again I like Rick Ross a lot but his music is not fu*kin with bigs period.
You my brother so I respect your opinion.

I'm neutral on the issue because I never worked with B.I.G or met him personally and I tend to respect the opinion of the people that knew him over the people that didn't.


Now does Ross have that B.I.G aura ..yes that can't be denied regardless of how you feel about their lyrical skills.

I always argue with my peoples about Biggies discography Vs other discographys and I always remind them that Biggie only had two albums and less than 60 songs so it's hard to compare to be honest.
