    Between these artists who at the end of their career do you think will have the biggest leagacy/will be remembered most? Personaly I believe Jay Elec. will forever be underrated & never really be fully excepted such as Lupe! Now my pick would be B.o.B. if he can keep being creative...what do u think?

"Nas and Lu are my all time favorites but sometimes they piss me off for the reason they say shit they will contradict later, and to me that either makes them fake, or bi-polar, or even a pawn for record labels..." or maybe they're just human...at the end of the day,these guys are just rappers,they're no guardian angels.take what you like and leave out the parts you don't

Anyone see CHs 27 min freestyle at xxl? only meant to listen to a couple mins but ended up listening to all of it. He can just rhyme all day

I think J. Cole is next up in terms of being that MC both respected in the mainstream and lyrical realm. He's under Jay and is capable of doing radio jawns... B.o.B. is doing his thing and besides J. Cole I think he can do it. Jay Elec is nice but dude is stuck on that underground OKP steeze, Asher is a nice MC but he lacks the mass appeal... he's white but the wrong kinda white to appease everyone (the hood niggas i know still clown him despite his mic skills). Charles pretty much ethered his career. He is dope off the dome and is even capable of some great song-writing (The Pink Lavalamp IMO is dope status), but his refusal to compromise his "art" for the record label is not gonna get him far...

swag & flow are 1 & the same...END of convo...

Being able to "ride the beat" is flow. Not "swag". Swagger is an attitude that can manifest itself in many different parts of song.

ok...when u said "...and be able to ride a beat" how well u "ride a beat" is what swag is & contrary 2 what some may think I think Lupe is in the top 10 at doing that & that Lil' Wine (& dine cus u know hes a high class bitch :) !! ) is in the bottom 10!!...just had 2 throw a diss out 2 the most overhyped rapper ever ;)

sky would get more much respect/recognition if he changed his named
Mike_16's picture

Sky doesn't have swagger? First off, that term I don't care about. That term is giving men an excuse to call eachother cute, so no swagger from this side here (if that is your thing though, please do what you do). I like my lyricists with simply the ability to rhyme, and be able to ride a beat. Plus they should have a good ear for beats, and sound like they actually care. Skyzoo is what he is, and he is actually doing hip-hop his own way. Yeah, I consider him a 90's throwback because of the sort of beats he is good at rapping over. As for holding his tongue, I doubt that is the reason, but if it is, good for him. Nas and Lu are my all time favorites but sometimes they piss me off for the reason they say shit they will contradict later, and to me that either makes them fake, or bi-polar, or even a pawn for record labels... And yes Malik, Sean Price is a beast and very underrated. I would still take Styles P or Sky but Sean Price would be right behind there

I'm pretty sure Sean Price is the most underrated emcee. MONKEY BARZ! KIMBO PRICE! JESUS PRICE SUPERSTAR! MIC TYSON!
Soun's picture

oh & also I like my lyricst with a lil' more swagger than I thnk he has...
Soun's picture

well I've heard stuff like "maintain" & "dear whoever...he has some nice lyricism but I thnk he comes off scared 2 say somethin he knows he'll be be criticized/hated/contradicted 4/about...just sayin!...& u aint never heard Lupe or Nas heed their toungue!
Mike_16's picture

Also, one has to respect Skyzoo for being a street/gangster rapper that never uses the N word in his music, and can make a love song without using a single curseword. Dude is the most underrated rapper in the game other than Styles P (had to get the phantom in there) lol
Mike_16's picture

SO/UN, I understand but let me at least ask you what you've heard from him and what songs you didn't like. I personally think Skyzoo shits on the whole list except for Jay Elec, he's just on another level. Charles Hamilton is ass cream, Asher Roth is cream period (not a white joke, or is it? lol), while J Cole and B.O.B. are good emcees who really don't have their own thing that makes them special.

I know u'll hate me 4 it but I dont like Skyzoo...thts y I didnt add him...no offense but Im not hatin I just dont like him!

BoB will likely be the most commercially viable throughout his career. Jay Electronica will most likely put out the best music.

distant relatives was one of the best albums this year, in a strong year too. Doubt we'll see a whole album from lu and J.E. though
Mike_16's picture

If Jay Elec and Lu do a project together, it will help both of their careers. I am hoping Nas and Damien Marley's album has set a new precedence for collaboration efforts. I am still surprised Distant Relatives actually happened. As for J Cole, he is cool. I have no problem with him. I still think he is being overrated by fans but that's not his fault. I like Skyzoo over J Cole but they both are nice.

j cole. b.o.b. will probably go on to good things, maybe on a level between cudi and ye. but i see j cole going far, cant see the album getting much radio play outside of hip hop radio, but the albums been described as a mix between illmatic and college dropout.

Well, Jay Electronica is the most talented of that group. Also, you forgot an emcee from NY by the name of Skyzoo, who is just as good if not better than all of them. But to answer the question, it will be B.O.B.
