Big Boi Top 10? You crazy.
I respect the fu*k out of Big Boi... n*gga has CLASSIC verses.. but chill..
I listened to Speakerbox waaaay more than Love Below... but chill...
Big Boi is a top level rapper.. but putting him anywhere above around 25 or so, is a huge reach. Andre fits into any decent list anywhere from 10 down to 1, IMO. Big Boi fits anywhere from 20 down to 40 or so, IMO.
Big Boi is on the same level as a Redman... some LEGENDARY verses.. HUGE impact to the culture.. but just not *quite* on the same level as the TRUE greats.
And shout out to Tip for showing appreciation.
He's another rapper on the same level as a Big Boi. Some legendary verses.. one CERTIFIED classic album, and a couple others that are close... at one point had potential to be an all-time great.. but where he is now... obviously in that 2nd tier of rappers. Now.. that 2nd tier still has legends in it.. n*ggas ain't comparing him to Bleek or anything like that.. but it's a reach to put certain n*ggas in the top 10.
