    top 5 right now does not mean top 5 of all time. niggas get in the zone and out the zone. the list shifts every few weeks.

    right now mos is murderin his verses. nikki in the top ten right now.

  13. 456 Says:

    why do people put Jay E in there top 5??? dude has only made 5 songs!!!

    ^because those 5 songs have more soul and feeling than 90 percent of all the shit out right now.

    ^I could give a fuck about who sold out and who didnt. I’m smh cuz a lot of the times, the shit that you say just make no sense.

    If you don’t like Kweli, cool. thats your right not to like him. But to say that conscious rap lost when it got more conscious (whatever the fuck that means) and less about the observatory reactions of the plight we live in is just dumb and nonsensical

    We sell, crack to our own out the back of our homes
    We smell the musk at the dusk in the crack of the dawn
    We go through “Epidodes II,” like “Attack of the Clones”
    Work ’til we break our back and you hear the crack of the bone

    We commute to computers
    Spirits stay mute while you eagles spread rumors
    We survivalists, turned to consumers

    Mos would have to be the most broke sell out ever. LOL.

    most people sell out for fame and fortune… what did Mos get??

    true, but sometimes it just seems like dudes are using big wirds to come off smart. Word to Nas and I Can. If you wanna educate yourself buy a book but please dont take anything these rappers say for granted.

    1. Flamboyant freestyle
    2. Midwest Malcolm
    3. Goodies
    4. Slammin’
    5. World So Cold
