Biggie is the best to ever do it. My number one favorite rapper. I've overplayed all his songs so I take breaks from listening to him but whenever I go back I'm always blown away. He has remained my number one favorite rapper for at least 5 years at this point.
I'm not going to get into specifics and break down why I feel like he's better than other rappers through categories or any of that. It's just my opinion, and personal preference. Ready to Die is the most complete album to me, and his classic song to total song ratio is out of this world.
By u saying "big IS the best to do it" ur making it a factual statement. The downright fact is that no rapper has overdone eminem. Jay z is the closest. The marshal mathers lp, the fastest selling hip-hop album in history can challenge any album. I will put the song "Kim" against any song a rapper has ever mustered up. Eminem ain't the same anymore but to say he started his fame at 26 and is now 40 with 13 grammys, an Oscar, over 100 million sold, voted king of rap, has 2 diamond albums, won best artist of the decade over THE BEETLES....come on man. And that's not even going into his lyrics. See I can show detail on why eminem is the greatest...and he didn't need a soft drink, club or sports team to do it.
