Jays 6th Album was BP

Pacs 6th album was Makaveli

Thats how long both of them took to drop their best albums in my opinion

I'd hate to imagine what BIGs 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th album would have sounded like, would he have shown as much growth as Pac and Jay?
not really, biggie was actually getting worse imo

puffy really had a strong pull on big, it looks like he would have been dancing in shiny suits soon....

And this is what I can't stand. Let Big get some creative freedom. That's what I wish we could've heard...

As long as there is a difference of opinion, difference in taste of music and different personalities of people, no musical artist will ever obtain the greatest of all time title since it's never a unanimous decision

Well yeah crossing genre lines is impossible if that's where you were going with this. But many consider Elvis the greatest to ever do it at his craft. Michael Jackson the greatest to ever do it at his craft. Jimmy Hendrix the best to ever do it at his craft. Et cetera, et cetera.

Point is, there's not really a need for unanimity if there's majority. People will never agree on everything, that's a given...

You just proved my point who do you think majority of people think the goat is?

...I never said they were correct to name them the greatest, it's just a unanimity v. majority argument.

You call people sheep all the time. So if the majority of people only name Pac due to that group mentality does it hold weight? According to you, nope.

Fact is, other people's opinions don't determine the legitimacy of arguments. Legitimate premises do & the "majority" argument is illegitimate...

Everybody has a reason there called the greatest they didn't just pick MJ and Elvis out of the air with no reason its because of impact on that genre of music just like pac and hiphop




I can say Michael Jackson not the king of pop but that won't change anything he will still be looked at as the king because thats how most people feel that's how everything is basically decided by vote If you take 10 people and 8 of them agree on something do you think the other 2 people that don't really matters or will get there way?

I think people call nas jay z and whoever else the GOAT because that's who they listen to the most when that has nothing to do with being the greatest I can listen to lil Wayne all day that doesn't make him the greatest

And some reasons are better than others. Like I said, if they only picked Elvis & Mike because everybody else did why would that make them just as legitimate as someone who actually had specific reasons? It wouldn't.

I can 't stress this point enough. It's about reasons that hold weight. There are none that are flawless. But some have a lot less flaws than others. "Majority" is not one of these...

 Retro said:
..I've listened to a lot more Pac over the years than I have Nas. It isn't even close. Just because I prefer him that doesn't make him better overall, just better for me. Those two things can coincide but they're completely different for me...
 Retro said:
Nothing wrong with that. The reason I pick Nas is because he has a better flow than two of them and is at least tied for the best lyrically. No other rapper out of the 5 you listed is ranked that high in both categories...

See you talking about skill which contributes to being the best of all time if you say nas is a better rapper than pac I might agree but when it comes to greatest (impact and influence on hiphop) its pac easily






Like I said before Lupe is a better rapper than kanye but would you rank Lupe over kanye on the all time list?

You can't change the definition of the word just to win the argument & you can't be the greatest on impact alone. You obviously need some skill to be the greatest & to have that much impact on the culture. Nas has just as much influence as Pac and you said you'd agree that he's the better rapper. Since that's the case why isn't Nas the "greatest?"

Lupe is ahead of Kanye on my list already so...
