I fucks with this
Lil Wayne needs to stop singing.Period.Leave that shit entirely to Drake or someone else that is gifted to sing.
He just doesn't sound good anymore. The drugs have fried his brain. I can't understand one word that comes out of that man's mouth.
Awful. If this is what hip hop has evolved to then im outtta here!
Lil Wayne is the most over rated rapper ever.. out of the thousand songs he's done I actually don't remember any of his lyrics.. Why, because he talks sh****t... I don't need that sh*t!!
Drake feature= RELEVANT!!
I fantasize about Drake in my dreams.
For whatever it's worth, I didn't hear any bad punchlines from Lil Wayne... But that clearly digitally enhanced sing song lovey dovey rap just doesn't do it for me. Lil Wayne has seriously been WACK since Carter 3. Dude is HORRIBLE now.
I think Drake actually OUTSHINED Wayne on this track. Drake is not wack as a rapper, but his lyrical content is just boring. Money, cars, and women, rinse, wash, repeat. If his content was better, the hip hop community would like him better.
The beat is crazy, but the song turns out to be boring. The lyrics are weak, just makes me lose interest.
A nice beat does not make a good song.
Damn Drake is right, dudes is scared of him! Anyone see footage of 50 & the Unit at either OVO Fest or the Drake tour stop in Connecticut? Them boys recognized that he's a boss man! Only a matter of time before he starts his own YMCMB!
2 of my heros, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't curl up to my partner & hold him while we drink merlot & listen to Drake.
This goes hard but i feel like it sound like wayne kind of using lil durks/young thug style. thats just how it sound to me i like it though..
Young Thug is inspired by Lil Wayne. So I can see why you said this.
I got give Wayne some credit........he makes decent music......he doesn't make up shit, or tries to portrait some gangsta imagine like half at these rappers. He talks about smoking weed and enjoy life and being a young black successful dude. He's one of the realist rappers out there.....he's stays in he's lane.....he's not lyrical, but he makes decent music, that's what u want out of an artist. I enjoy listening to wayne when I'm burning a few ;)
This has to be the most moronic, uninformed, outdated comment ever.
wayne is so bad. he even makes a drake verse somewhat tolerable. 1/5
I Cringe at this I mean
After hearing Common's new Album...I Cringe.
Here's my list:
1. Lil Wayne
8. Big Daddy Kane
9. Big L
2- Lil Wane
3- Chief Keef
5- Rick Ross
6- Big Sean
7- French Montana
9- Nicki Minaj
10- Soulja Boy
lil wayne as no. 1? you must be some kind of advanced stupid
Why would Wayne do this bullshit, then be dum of enough to put drake on. Drake killed making Wayne verse even worst...smh. Bond to happen Wayne wacks trends are dying. Better find a ghost writer
Weezy fell off so hard lol. have not heard one decent verse in forever from him. garbage. Drake is cool tho.
drakes cool doe < !?!
Songs fire, drake killed that shit!!!!
Just Because Wayne Is Crazy I Gave This Song A Listen It May Not Be Party or Club Friendly, But I'd Definitely Bump This In My Car. L.O.U.D Wayne's Lyrics Show He's In Control
These dudes still making music? Lol. They need to retire.
Especially Wayne. Dude is just out of his mind. He's become a joke.
Wow... I have heard farts with better sound.
I hope all the new fangled "rap" fans R happy now. They finally got what they wanted. Even the last of the "halfa rap @ss ngz" done quit even tryna 2 pretend like they can rap!
lil wayne on young thug's flow
not feeling it, i'll wait untill the Unit remixes it.
this go hard, what are you freaks on about?
l remixed this
Damn was hyped this for but it was awful :( I cant lie..
Sick ass beat horrible. Lil wayne was horrible
Tech N9ne would kill this beat
This is my personal list of the Greatest ever (Not meant to be liked by Hip Hop heads. It's my personal for a reason, music is subjective and yes I have respect for Hip Hop. If I wanted to make a list based on a general census it would be completely different)
8. 3 Stacks
10. Lauryn Hill
14. 50 Cent
15. Mos Def
18. Big Pun
19. Busta Rhymes
20. Rick Ross
I respect your list because you actually know and listened to more than I have. I've heard about 3/4 of the rappers you've named and they are all great mc's. But I feel they aren't good enough for me to listen to repetedly.
Also the sound of Hip Hop changed drastically so it's kind of hard to compare rappers. Honestly everyone is influenced by everyone. But going back to Drake again, I just feel i bought a completely new sound and style to rap. Many rappers these days are looking for that Drake sound just because it's very appealing to a wider audience and todays generation.
Many of the rappers you names are a lot deeper in their lyrics and have a more raw "hip hop" sound. That's usually more relatable to older cats but I still respect.
I just feel that Kanye is the rapper that makes the best music in Rap period (not saying he's the best rapper) and has probably the best albums by any rapper: College drop out, MBDTF, Late Registration, GRADUATION... He has one of the highest rated albums ever on meteoritic and the highest in Hip Hop. Diamonds from sierra leone, Jesus Walks etc... These are just some of the classics he has that I feel puts him in that category ignoring obviously his production side. All in all I feel it's all about the music and with that respect Kanye is a Legend.
I agree with your list except for number 10. Sales aren't important in my opinion.
Music is the number 1 thing for me.
The one thing all these guys have in common is that they all make great music.
I didn't just pick 20 lyricists.
You can be a great lyricist but have wack beats. And vice versa.
To be top 20 you have to be great at both.
Now the reason I didn't pick kendrick and Kanye and drake etc in my top 100 or 150 is because there are so many great emcees out there.
I gave you a top 20. But I artists like method man, cormega, sticky fingaz, raekwon, Ghostface killah aren't even in my top 30.
And then you have cats like jadakiss, styles p, inspector deck, la the darkman, q-tip, who probably just fall out of my top 40.
So there are so many emcees out there. And I ain't even mention black rob, ol dirty bastard, mase, killah priest, lord finesse, buckshot, and all those cats.
And then you have top 60. What about kurupt, the alkaholics, b real, ra the rugged man etc
Legends like Kool moe dee, Craig g, etc
Beanie Sigel probably makes the top 100. But what about queen Latifah and Lauryn hill?
What about cappadonna, snoop Dogg, busta rhymes, cl smooth?
Mc lyte, big boi, bone thugs, twista, eazy e etc
It's difficult enough fitting all these cats in a top 100.
Cats like Keith Murray, havoc, Talib kweli, common, mos def, g dep etc
Do they make my top 100?
So I honestly believe that drake wouldn't be in the top 150 or 200 emcees I've heard.
Kanye either. Lil Wayne aswell.
Same as kendrick Lamar.
Maybe one day they will be. Hopefully. Cos there all talented.
@kanye: You have been listening for a lot longer than me no doubt. But I can't force my self to like other rappers from other generations because they are supposedly better Mc's. I just find it amazing how Drake, Kanye and Kendrick wouldn't be in your top 50 let alone top 100. I feel Hip Hop is a lot more than just lyrics and delivery. I feel theres a lot more... heres my list in order:
1. Classic Albums
5. Ability to pick beats
7. Story telling
8. Catchy hooks
I feel rappers like drake will never be known as the best mc's or lyricists because they simply aren't. What drake has bought to hip hop is completely different than what a Nas would bring. Nas is a pure lyricist, Drake is more of an artist since he can sing and is more appealing to wider audience. Nas surely has more classic albums but in my opinion and I factor sound more than anything Drake sound is a lot more appealing to me. What Drake talks about is a lot more relatable since I wasn't brought up in the streets. When it's all said and done I believe Drake's impact in the Rap game will be as big if not bigger than Nas for example. Even rappers like Nas have praised Drake. Looking at it now might seem ridiculous but believe me in a few years time he will have a big legacy.
Very good list, thorough! u are a hip-hop head! all the artists u listed had skill and mass appeal
I have no problem with your list because lists are personal opinions.
Mine would be.
3. Krs one
5. Kool g rap
6. Jay z
7. Ll cool j
9. Ice cube
10. Big daddy Kane
12. Slick rick
14. Masta ace
15. Chuck d
16. Jeru the damaja
18. Big punisher
19. Big L
Black thought, Pharoahe monch, Andre 3000, Tragedy khadafi, slim shady, canibus, prodigy, treach etc.
I've been listening to hip hop for 25 years so I judge hip hop over that period. Drake, kendrick Lamar wouldn't be in the top 100 rappers of all time.
Kanye, rick Ross, Lil Wayne and t.i wouldn't be in my top 100 or 150 emcees either.
i can make a perfect beat and a better rhyme than this. This guys should be arrested for defaming Rap music
drake makes every song great. Plus lil wayne is a legend. Haters flocking this joint by the hundreds mad cause these 2 run this rap game. Drake makes rap relevent drake is the face of rap
This song is trash. Both Wayne and Drake suck and they don't run shit. Your last sentence is a lie.
Drake's verse wasn't bad, he definitely ended it well. Wayne...well, that's another story :-/
rip lil wayne 2004-2010
All of Young Money biters.
He sound like young thug lmao
What you're really saying is he sounds like Young Thug sounding like Lil Wayne. Young Thug has been VERY vocal about Lil Wayne being his main influence. #TheMoreYouKnow
this song is carter 3 wayne. hopefully the album will have more of carter 2 wayne
this song is trash 3 wayne. hopefully the album will have more of trash 2 wayne
what the fuck is this wack ass shit
these is dope,wayne still got it
lol nope he doesnt
Used to be a big weezy fan but fuck me he cant make a hit these days..... the reviews r spot on ... its garbage.... again
what the flying fuck kind of beat is that? YMCMB musta went to dollarama to get this beat, fuckin hell man shit is retarded. them niggas popped an M pill too much on the way to the studio.
I don't care for swag music because its all the same. Every beat and auto tune hook sounds the same, rinse wash repeat. From hearing this, Lil Wayne is not gonna change too much from the last 2 albums. It's just gonna be more of the same non sensical raps, lovey dovey auto tune shit.
With that being said, make no mistake. This will get stupid radio play. This will be hyped to no end. The teenage females will be all over this like fly on shit and the swag fag males with skinny jeans and tight shirts are gonna be hyped.
But in all honesty, this shit is fucking trash. You can officially stick a fork in Lil Wayne. He's done. Drake on this song? TERRIBLE. Forgettable generic verse. I can't wait for the day that I stop hearing music from them.
heard wayne's next single is titled "Juicy" featuring drake
THIS IS FUCKING GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!
This is pure garbage. This has not been Black Zombie approved !!!
Dis is that shit cant wait to jump on the remix . Bout to hit the studio you know how i do
Can't believe Wayne would bite Thug that hard. Embarrassing
I LOVE IT ...SMILEY FACE :)
This is so fucking dope cant hate rhyme flows and beat are unique If you not a true hiphop head then this shit is not for you .
Go listen to that fat fuck Action Bronson
At least that fat fuck has some good rhymes.
The Clipse Grindin' was so much better!
What the fuck are they talking about pure garbage lyrics that make no sense
This beat wouldve been better going to some lyrical artists but... if they paid for it... The instrumental is cold but its just a new single from some regular players of the game... Nothing too hype or impressive.
Everyone yelling about how the shyts garbage, its a mainstream track. Mainstream = Commercial = Watered Down = Stepped On = Dumb'd Down = Not an actually meal, more like McDonalds. If you eat fast food and understand what it is, then you should be able to realize the purpose of tracks like this. You want a meal, go find some dope indie artists and support em. And for Gods sake stop clicking on shyt you know you're not going to like... Unless yall just like bitching... and if so... ball out...
Please shut the fuck up . Thanks buddy
Literally all commercial hip hop sounds the same now... Is there such thing as true originality and creativity anymore?
Yess, this song just has to grow on you. People were saying the same bad things about believe me before it hit the radio. Now it's at the top.
Fuck commercial radio rap that shits for the birds and pre-teens
the worst 2 guys trying to do music. both have zero clue.
worst song ever made. only nicki minaj missing and all these garbage artists are united. 0/5.
drake and lil wayne = shame for music.
100000% chance you're a suburbanite
Start working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.
This is what I do. 2.gp/FoxNews
...Janet Jackson in this Bitch!
wow i read about 10 responses and no one said he sounded like YOUNG THUG? yea im not impressed but i kind of think these are throw away tracks,they're testing the market to see what sticks with these....
this sounds just like young thug. thank you.
all the hunniz will be bangin this when they drivin to the beach, this single will go plat, wayne and drake rolling in dough and babes, making an embarassment of all the 'true hip hop head' rappers who don't sell shit
I'm finally seeing the light now. This nigga Drake is garbage. What the HELL was I thinking? He sound like a poor man's lil wayne, I don't know maybe his crooning got me all emotional and shit. Anyways, my apologies to all the HHDX fans on here. Drake is truly garbage with the same flow every damn song.
Drake Runs Rap.
Why does the new lil wayne album feel like a drake album featuring lil wayne?
take wayne off shit is hot
trash.one of the worst songs by a legend and he is a legend
Griiiind. Is a bad song
This is weak AF, anybody who say otherwise is just a YMCMB fan or a dick rider. Wayne don't say shit when he rap but ya'll be quick to hop on his dick off the first word he spit. This is trash, but then again ya'll the same niggas that think prolly think nas, Kendrick, J.Cole, T.I. and Jay Electronica are trash. SMH
weezy tha legend shit fire
How many times can these dudes sell the same shit?
Finally real hiphop.
stay anonymous while you say the dumbest shit ive ever heard wow
WEEEZZY F BABY!!!
turned off the second i hear auto tune
Since Drake is so hot.. he is needed for the first and second single of the Carter 5...
Another classic from the most gifted nigga to ever grace the mic. He the GOAT, niggas feel some typa way cuz their artists are irrelevant as fuck
PSYCH!! This shit is garbage. Wayne will never be the best.
drake murdered you on your own shit
Drake and Boi-1da with another classic!
More like another forgettable song.
This is crap.
this nigga needs to artiscially grow the fuck up. This shit is wack...mostly because i can hear one of these new teenager mufucas make this...wayne is 30 plus years old....this just another song about NOTHING...random bars that don't paint no picture.....put a fork in this nigga he done...niggaz like KRIT..jcole...kendrick...are all younger then lil wayne and they music sounds more grown up then his.....smh
straight up, this shit weak AF
Hang yourself nigga. Your momma shoulda swallowed you.
"FIRE" track. They both go hard! Beat HOT! These 2 together are a problem. Respect due! Check out 2Kingz "Wayout" feat. Fred Da Godson & more from CityatWar Records on worldstarhiphop.com. Comments are welcome. Thanks....C@W/2KZ
Better than Believe Me
Wayne sucks!!!!! Drake is the TRUTH!!!!!
you suck IT too, Fisherboy
Wayne is the GOAT. Drake is good, but he ain't in Wayne's universe.
Good beat to drive to, this will go at least Gold, maybe plat.
Yet more evidence Drake and Lil Wayne run rap.
Wayne runs nothing! And Drake is up there with guys who are lyrically the best, but he does not run rap. Get it right dude!
