This is the reason I don't do the list thing any more, for me time definitely shifts things for me. I use categories instead. Icons, Hall of famers, elite emcees, good emcees etc. For example there are some icons that I would not consider elite emcees and vice versa. Wayne/ Snoop are icons, maybe even HOF'ers but not an elite emcees for me. Jada is just a good emcee to me. Lupe is an elite emcee IMO but definitely not an icon and hasn't changed the game enough to warrant HOF status.
Agreed, and that all makes sense..I don't even do that though. I just accept that there's a huge a.ss fu*king list of dudes that can be considered the greatest ever and leave it at that.
Whether you want to admit it or not, Black Thought can be argued as the best rapper ever to live. I could write a fu*ken paper on it and it would make sense. Do I believe that? Not really..cause I believe that there is no best rapper ever..only a very large group of cats that people like to argue as the best because they relate to them more or understand their style more.
