    Lol at people arguing with tribe over em…You should realize now that tribe’s affection for em is on par with ty’s affection for joe budden. They can do no wrong in their eyes…

    Tribe will give up his life savings just to meet eminem…so take in mind that you’re not going to convince him…this is his man lover we’re talking about.

    Relapse sucks. Any way you slice it. It’s not engaging lyrically or production-wise. Em’s on his Slim Shady drug shit, just minus the humor and creativity. And Dre (or his ghost producers) sound asleep at the boards.

    —————

    exactly … financial gains aside, Mr Mathers sould be embarrassed … Andre Young, too …

    If this version made the album, I’d say this^ better than Relapse too

    Lets do the math…

    Em is top 5

    Ghost is top 10… Maybe

    So how do you explain Ghost > Em

    If you think ghost is better than Nas, 3k, Jay, Big, or em i believe you make it home in time to take a shit on a toilet

  26. D_block_4_life Says:

    Ghost is top 10… Maybe
    ^
    Yeah right, Ghost has his spot in the top 10 just like Jay, Nas and Big. Even with all the arguments that have taken place with me and Rigz/Ease, i can acknowledge his greatness and rate him objectively.

    Ghost deserves his spot before Pun.

    What up?

  27. Joe 88 Says:

    lol @ R.J

    But me finding out he’s a gemini is interesting. Explains why he does some of the shit he does

    Who said Em is top five? You and Jay?

    Ghost is absolutely on the same plane of hiphop artistry as Jay, Nas, 3K, and Christopher Wallace. ABSOLUTELY.

    this wayne reminds me of 05/06 wayne, just with some autotune.

    Carter II is still his best album and a classic.
    —————————————————————

    lol a classic? thats a joke. People throw classic out too much, just because an album is good it isn’t automatically a classic. There aren’t that many classics, and to put Carter II in an elite album category is blasphemy.

    Carter II comparing to:

    Illmatic
    Reasonable Doubt
    The Infamous
    Life After Death
    Ready To Die
    OB4CL
    The Chronic
    Midnight Marauders
    Blueprint
    College Dropout
    BE
    Enter The Wu: 36 Chambers
    Doggystyle
    Me Against The World
    The Fix
    Low End Theory
    It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
    Eminem Show
    Paid In Full

    And theres probably about 20 to 30 more. Carter II, a DECENT at best album has no business in that category.

    Carter>>>Carter II, And The Carter is an average album.

  37. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    I like Medicine Ball, Deja Vu, and 3am…all the rest are okay but nothign that sticks to ya, makes you wanna re-play alot.

    NO. you went too far. top 15-20 but not top 5

    ^^
    Top 5 is my personal opinion. Top 10 is FACT. Ghost has top five solo catalogue in hiphop, whether you consider him a top 5 emcee or not.

    Top solo catalogues : Nas, Jay, Scarface, Ghost, Cube.

  52. Boosie Says:

    Doug,

    You’re old my dude, all of those albums are like 10+ years old. Not a fair or accurate assessment…

    Carter 2 is a classic, you just don’t know yet. Prolly not a classic to you cause you prolly don’t like or respect lil wayne but when all is said and done carter 2 will be a classic. Thats just how the world works

  53. Beezy Says:

    Top solo catalogues : Nas, Jay, Scarface, Ghost, Cube.

    ^Snoop’s catalog > Cube’s, imo

    25-35? You’re bugging. Prove it. Name 25 niggas that should rank higher than Ghost. Take as much time as you need, pause.

    snoop put out a lotta trash….

    dont forget he was with No Limit for a minute….he definitely had his lost years

  64. Joe 88 Says:

    I disagree that carter 2 is a classic also, I personally think the carter 1 is way better than the carter 2, true he showed vast improvement on the carter 2, but the carter 1 felt better (pause) the beats was better, the overall album had a better flow from beginning to end, that was one of those albums I had to listen to all the way threw, every other wayne album, not so much

    ^^
    Snoop has turned out to be more consistent. His last couple LP’s, while not groundbreaking, are dope and very listenable. But he’s never reached the peaks of AmeriKKKa’s, Death Certificate, Kill at Will, or Predator. Not even Doggystyle.

  67. D_block_4_life Says:

    Random order and subject to change depending on mood:

    Jay

    Ghostface
    Scarface

    G Rap
    Interchangable spot: Em, Pun, Beans Cube.

    ^Word. Doggystyle is a personal favorite because I was an impressionable youth when it dropped and it shaped my ghetto mind.

    Snoop’s impressive because of his ability to stay relevant, and reonvent himself within the framework of his already established persona.

    I mean, even today he was still probably the nicest emcee on the autotuner…and he was on it before Ye, Wayne, etc.

    Thats like chrysler workers saying, toyota and honda make shitty cars…well guess what many people beg to differ. since no one is buying the music you loved, you feel scorned.
