Hip Hop heads come Hither....

#RonvsJon

Was having a debate in a group chat. Who's the better Technical MC between Joe Budden and Jadakiss

Example of Technica/l Lyrical skill

Flow, multisyllabic, double entendres, wordplay, story telling, vocabulary, concepts

AKA Checking boxes

No it’s not. It’s become an excuse for crab in the barrel mentality. You really listen to a song and think who’s better? That’s retarded.

damn good question because it's pretty even...

but this is a 2 part question....better emcee and better lyricist...I a*sume by technical, u just mean not taking into account career, image, etc...just skills.

I think Joe overall edges him out for lyricist...it's pretty close, but I think Joey's a better storyteller, got entendres for days, and rhymes on a wider variety of things...

I think Jada's the better emcee...his flow, voice, delivery, and performance are better than Joe's imo, and that combo beats the edge Joe has on him with lyrics...and i'm a lyrics-first fan...but while both comparisons are close, I think Jada's closer to Joe in lyrics than Joe is to him on the emcee aspects I mentioned.

Good thread, OP.

Kiss is nicer than Joe, has a better voice, seems more relatable, and checks every box. I don't even think this could be argued fairly just off the strength that Kiss is just that nice and has is a rare personality. There's artists that took Joe's style and ran with it. Kiss is one of a kind so you're not gonna get a fair unbiased poll. You're gonna get nxggas that like Kiss voting for him and contrarians voting for Joe. Not many will be objective.

All that being said I might have to edge that to Joe just based off the fact that he told mad stories with mad punches and concepts. That nxggas was really trying to be a rapper rapper. His biggest problem was being himself in front of the public. Nxggas would rather believe a fairytale than know they favorite rapper is a corny mfer.

I'm more of a fan of Joe as a person more than a rapper. Knowing his story on and off wax and how consistent he's been with sharing real life shxt.... He gets props from me.

Don't get me wrong Kiss is my guy but I really don't know one thing he's been through personally (haven't heard his latest album though) that he's shared on a record. That's a lot of raps to write without really addressing your own personal pain. Part of being a successful MC is allowing your fans to go on that journey with you. Just my two cents.

Actually Kiss is more technical and Joe is more lyrical. With that said Kiss > Joe however Joe low key has been more impactful ©️ Drake. Joe suffered from a horrible voice, horrible beats, horrible mix & mastering, horrible team, not having an A&R, was too early as an emo rapper during Hip Hops peak gangster rap era ie 50 & G-Unit while Kiss has one of the most legendary rap voices, had great timing as he came out right after Big died after being under him, char a team in Ruff Ryders as mgmt & Lox as a group, was on Bad Boy, Def Jam & Interscope where he had the cream of the crop a&r’s, engineers & producers so along with his talent he had all the ingredients to be a legend which he became even though I think he still fell short of what he should’ve been.

Love both, but this is Joey's.

Real sh*t...just because the Lox ( really Jada ) dismantled a p*ss poor Dipset who forgot they barz don't mean Jada doing Joey dirty.

Like I said, love them both, but this goes to Buddens. He checks all the boxes three songs into any album most times.

I agree but since every rapper rhyming about how they the best and no other rappers could fu*k with them it's fair game

Joey is by far the better story teller

Punchlines I’d give to Jada

I prefer Jada’s delivery more and I think Jada writes the better songs even though Joey has the more well rounded subject matter

I’m a roll with Kiss...
