Meek Mill Says Rappers Are "Shying Away From Real Rapping," Names Top Rappers

Meek Mill says many emcees are "shying away from real rapping" and that he wants to have an "Illmatic" type of album before naming his favorite emcees.

It seems Meek Mill hasn't been impressed by too many emcees of late. According to Mill, he feels many rappers "have been shying away from the real rapping in Hip Hop." This is what he explained in a recent interview, where he was also asked to list his top emcees. 

"I ain't gonna say no order but it's Biggie [Notorious B.I.G.], Tupac, Jay-Z...I'd say Nas and Lil Wayne maybe? Yeah, Lil Wayne," he shared with Wild 94.9

Meek was also asked to name his favorite album.  

"My favorite album? Jay-Z's [Vol. 2...Hard Knock Life]. That's the first album I ever had." 

Inspired by this album and others, Meek also shared what his goals are for his own release. According to him, he is striving to release a classic album. 

"A lot of people have been shying away from the real rapping in Hip Hop. I'm really representing," he added. "When I come out with my album, I want to have a classical album, a Illmatic, a Hard Knock Life...a Get Rich or Die Tryin' type of Hip Hop album."

    "When I come out with my album, I want to have a classical album, a Illmatic, a Hard Knock Life...a Get Rich or Die Tryin' type of Hip Hop album." But doesn't he realize that's impossible in today's hip hop album buying climate? Ain't no way you can sell under a million and have your album be deemed a classic. Even then, you need people to still be listening/praising it 5-10 years down the line, and I just don't see that happening here with this dude.

    • khordkutta

      it took awhile but illmatic went plat, and you know that ish was 3x plat in the hood with all the dubs.

      @truth Right but it is harder now. Due to the internet and us being fed so much bs music these past years alot of hip-hop fans have turned overly critical of every little detail.

    • truth

      illmatic never sold that much. i think he means as in a classic album in terms of quality and impact, not just sales.

  • ANONGANG

    How can Meek talk about real rapping when he stopped that during the first Dreamchasers (which was fucking awful)? Mr. Philly was sloppy but raw, and absolutely "real" and his verses for SM1 were more polished. But things change. And now knowing Lil Wayne is in his top 5...those percs he's hooked on and constantly rapping about in SM2 must have got him too faded to think clearly. Stop listening to 50 Cent & YM, Meek, and drop the laboratory heroin and your opinion on top emcees might actually matter to the "real" hip-hop world.

    Wu Tang Clan are the best rappers. They have Lil Wayne the king, Rick Ross the hustler, 2 Chainz the blood, Future the gangbanger, Gucci Mane the dealer, Waka Flocka the headbanger, Soulja Boy the young hero, Birdman the legend and Nicki Minaj the queen. Wack rappers like Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, GZA, RZA, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa and U-God are killing Hip-Hop with corny rhymes and lame radio pop bs. Lil Wayne is bringing all bloods, skaters, rap fans and guitar players together with the intelligent music he brings. Lil Wayne is the best!

He was 11 when Vol. 2 dropped so I could see that being the 1st album he copped. Especially comin up on the streets of Philly. And when Wayne was droppin ill shit (circa 2004-2007) son was in his late teens. He's just keepin it 100 with what touched him musically, unlike ya'll clowns who try to follow this invisible Hip-Hop bible. Stop being gay... jeez. Like seriously, ya'll really sound sick.

    Yawl niggas as stupid as fuck for hating on meek for putting wayne in his top 5. I am 37yr old and I hate wayne's new shits after carter 3 but you cant deny his impact on the culture. I have been listening to rap ever since and I can tell u u cant deny wayne's impact. Rap has changed a lot. 80s style was different from the 90s and so is the 90s and the early 00s and its even different now. Wayne is the rapper with the MOST songs. If yawl probably take the hate away, u would have him in ur top 5. Now I dont want to see u lil kids replying to ma post talking shit.

    • ufullashit

      how u hate and talk shit bout age? u sound like a young dummy. u ever wanna be a productive 37 year old? listen to one. or you'll be a broke fucked up 37 year old. i'm not 37. 29. Seen and heard a lot of hip hop been listenin to wayne forever. mr. 37 got a point. I hate almost everything he got out once carter 3 dropped. he crossed over too much for me even tho on carter 2 first track he said he wouldnt. although i dont like most his material right now wayne been doin it since late 90's and still doin it. he was relevant then and argued as the best right now how can you not respect that whether u like his shit or not? like he said... rap has changed from the 80's to 90's to early 2000's to now. wayne made his mark in the 90's 2000's and still goin strong. gotta give him props. I hear young niggas talkin bout wayne the same way I spoke bout 2pac in high school. give him his due. weirdo clothes and all

      @Sharp Yeah I know what you mean man. I wasn't feeling Meek at all at first, the little I'd checked out. But after checking DreamChasers 2 out I've got a lot more respect. Far from a perfect mixtape, there's a half dozen filler tracks but the rest is on point.

    • Sharp

      SMH at all these wannabe underground fans that are so thoroughly dismissive of mainstream artists that they don't even give their full catalog a second of their time.. Listen to DreamChasers2. I wasn't a Meek fan to start off, I'm a lyrical miracle, backpack not whackrap type of listener, and DreamChasers 2 absolutely was the impetus I needed to give Meek the full respect he deserves. Lines describing the ambivalence that he experienced helping out impoverished youth with jackets at winter time while hearing himself depicted as a demon by the DA? Not your typical cars clothes hoes shit.

    "Shying Away From Real Rapping" is he serious? Putting Lil Wayne in his top rappers contradicts that, Wayne is awful & a joke to rap if not for his dad owning cash money he'd be nowhere in rap. Also the only shit he raps about 'hoes', how much his watch costs & all shit like that and apparently you don't get it if you're 'not about that life'

    What annoys me is that people think everyone's list should be the same... the best doesn't always have to be someone's favorites.. Big and Pac were great but they don't have to be on everyone's list.. a lot of people name them because they feel like they're supposed to, because if they don't they're afraid they might receive backlash from "hip-hop heads".

      Half true half wrong, in fact is funny because hip hop heads (yours truly) don't care who you list as long as they're legitimately good whether underground, mainstream, ol school, new school, relevant, dormant it don't matter.

    Lol all you so called "hip hop heads" are just full of opinions and half ass truth.. Just because y'all were around during the first generation of hip hop artist doesn't mean your word is the absolute truth. Artist like big daddy kane, ll cool j and somewhat later like nas and rakim and jay z they were the beginning. I think the new age artist are better in my OPINION. Underground that is not the mainstream radio play garbage.

      It aint about new school or old school. its about talent. Eminem, Cyhi, Chamillionaire, T.I, Biggie, Method man... the list goes on. I feel you though cause ppl be saying its all about the old school cause they hating but its not all about the new school either.

      If you're into underground you're a hip hop head too you just started later, everybody you mentioned was or is underground or just the best rappers of their era period. Underground artists are the only ones that have added to what they have done, mainstream rappers eat off of it by exploiting it and watering it down. Plus underground artists have more respect for the legends that came before them even they are technically better.

    his top 5 sucks, but I'm happy he puts Lil Wayne on it, I don't think weezy is top 5 (not even in my top 20), but everybody dickrides hov, nas, biggie, pac, em, rakim, big daddy kane or krs-one when it comes to making top lists all the time remember when Game or Kendrick talked about his top-lists? there were almost the same names, and it is stupid, are they just scared to say somebody else's name, because fans (or sheeps) think that nas, hov, etc. should be in everybody's top 5? we still got Lupe, Talib Kweli, Common, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Kanye West, even the southern rappers like UGK, Outkast, Scarface or Chamillionaire ain't bad and what about rappers from UK or France?

  • Broward County

    You niggas is way to sensitive over this "lyrical" shit. Half you mugs don't have enough of a grasp on what's going on to comprehend good lyrics in the first place. As it stands, some dude can use a bunch of mis-placed big words to describe some half-cocked theory he cooked up, and you guys will praise him as a lyrical god. Pointblank, I don't even dig Pac like that. But to say he's "not a lyricist", or that "he's a rapper, not an emcee" is asinine. No, he didn't waste his time with a bunch of verbal acrobatics like Big Pun, Big L, or Eminem. But there's no handbook that says that's ALL there is to emceeing. Tupac had a great voice, outstanding delivery, and a presence that commanded attention. Like Rakim said, M.C means move the crowd. And if you're standing there mumbling a bunch of unintelligible, quasi-intellectual bullshit into the mic, you shouldn't be mad that Pac and Wayne had better careers than you do.

    i saw how many fans this guy had and downloads of the newest dreamchasers so i decided to give him a second chance since i dismissed him so long ago when i checked him out as a fake fraud that only raps about the things that hip hop needs to get away from Figures he still sux This crap is nothing more than negative frequencies that are misleading children into thinking that this is cool and what rap is about Him putting out a classic would be like Rick Rozay losing 10 pounds it ain't gonna happen man Pac was a revolutionary ahead of his time with something to say about the world we live in with mad skill and a ferociousness undeniable. Biggie was no pac but he had impact as well there is no denying his voice on the tape and his menacing message as well. Illmatic was a classic because it sounded nothing like anything else and he was spittin so fast and telling stories. OKAY where is meek No stories of importance typical rhyme schemes lame content about superficial money and hoe's and clothes .. Real rappers rap bout not havin money-not wavin it in our faces

  • A-Game

    Lol Meek says this but he's in the same group as Rick Ross. Lol that's ironic

  • ETK

    the only way that list would make sense is if the top emcees are determined in terms of IMPACT... impact wise, like it or not Wayne deserves to be in a top 5 cause he'll leave a huge trail behind him when he's gone. hip-hop as a whole ain't always been about lyricism and y'all know that. I'm no Wayne fan myself tho I liked his older shit. And maybe Rick Ross has been talking shit about Eminem to his homies so that would justify the list. maybe.

    Wats funny is he says "real rapping" but works w/the king of Gangsta myth rap aka Rick Ross. He has die hard fans who wud prolly call his music real rapping but to be nice, i'll jus call it entertainment...I think people have to understand that being a rapper & an actual MC are two different things.Any1 can be rapper(grab camera & put ur videos on youtube). To be an MC tho, requires some type of music w/substance. Also, the ability to create metaphors,similes,complex wordplay & rhyme schemes. Those who can paint pictures and tell stories w/their music. MC's are rappers by nature but it doesnt mean rappers are natural MC's... I know the art of actual "freestylin" is near extinction but if u notice, most rappers cnt freestyle for shit.MC's can tho..Hope this makes some sense
