All depends on which skill your appreciating.

Kurupt is a wicked lyricist.
Ice Cube got made delivery.
Dre is the GOAT of producing.
WC got a flow totally unique that sets him apart.
Daz got a rythym unmatched.
Themes, content, style, sales, props, number of albums, consciousness, flair, braggadocio, fluidity, stage presence, longevity, so many aspects to appreciate.

No singular artist stands out as the best.

You could argue Tupac but he hails from the East.

MC = Master of Ceremony.

Outlawz, possess so many traits but don't get the props.

Validation can be selfish of a fan.

I like how BlackThought from the Roots challenges fans appreciation.

Very well may be. Im unfamiliar with Quick although his name is familiar Im not aware of an artist hes produced. Whereas Dre has signed many artists but hasn't necessarily solidified their career. Infact hes subject to alot of criticism for not guiding their career the way they envisioned.

Pac and Gotta both from East, but I'd say they're West, since they repped/rep the West.

Fuck saying Game...he is weak on the mic!

You're then comparing the best on West as being Game and best on East is Rakim or G Rap...this makes the West look retarded.

I'm talking about being super lyrical...not weak bars...

if this was the 90's I'd say Kurupt or Ras Kass but currently... Crooked I

Yeah Crooked I is who first comes to mind when I think of a traditional MC from the west.

Kurupt has some nice verses on the latest HRSMN stuff, but that was a few years ago.

I think he's earning a lot more from weed, than rhymes.

WC is a decent shout.

I would also add Xzibit to my list. Hopsin is nice, too.

Did someone say Game is better than Kurupt, Ras Kass and Crooked I? Now I've heard it all.

Crooked I would probably out-rap him in a cypher nowadays but the other 2 not a chance, their bars and catalog are no match either lol Kurupt will always be an all time favorite for me but if you really think anything he's done after 2001 can hold a candle to Game I don't know what you're smoking but I need whatever it is

lmao Hopsin though, fuck outta here

Hopsin had the potential to be one of the best MC's out of the west, but he squandered that and wasted his talent. His new singles prove he fell off without ever getting on.

In no particular order:

Kurupt
Xzibit
Crooked I
MURS
Demetrius [Capone]
RAS KASS


Honorable mentions:
WC
Ab-Soul
K.Dot, but not Kendrick

I'm not talking about catalogue... I'm talking about bars.

No one on the West has bars like Crooked I.

Crooked is an MC, a lyricist.

Game has zero bars.

Kurupt may not be super lyrical now, but check Dogg Food.

Xzibit was super nice and his latest album was a classic.

The below Hopsin track has more bars than Game whole career...in ONE SONG

define what 'having bars" mean because without much effort you can easily spot Game's lyrical abilities (puns, similes, wordplays, metaphors, double entendre, rhyming scheme). now i'm by no means a Game fan, I think he's corny, unauthentic, and I don't like his antics. that being said, I like some of his music and as an MC he's pretty impressive when he's focused. I understand not liking him, but to say he has no bar is ridiculous. it's not the best MC in the west, but regardless of his music and his content, he's an elite rapper.

I like Chali 2NA but he's from the Chi, so he doesn't belong in the discussion. Evidence is dope but skillwise, he's pretty average. decent, but can't be considered among the best west coast mc's.


some of my favorite mc's / lyricists :

Crooked I
San Quinn
Blu
Fashawn
Techniec
Bad Azz
E-40
Kendrick

When I made the thread, I was just talking about who is the best on the West lyrically - like who has or had the hardest bars.

I think we all agree it's Xzibit, Ras Kass and Gotti - people mention Cube, too, of course, and Crooked I.

I personally rate Planet Asia, too.

I would say Crooked I has probably been the most consistent over the years in terms of strictly lyrics and bars
