    They should change the list's name to "7 Smart Rappers". It sounds more accurate.

    Never heard of Dee-1. If he had signed that contract maybe that wouldn't be the case. Troy Ave is lame as fuck and a hater. Fuck this August Alsina nigga lmao Chance the Rapper corny imo but he's got tons of hype...for now. Pretty much what I said about Troy Ave applies to Joey as well except I'm pretty sure I'd rather listen to Troy Ave rather than some nigga who's just using 90s throwback as a gimmick. 2 Chainz uhmmm lol. and Macklemore probably top 5 corniest rappers out.
