Title: Who's The Best In The WEST?
Post by: goldeneyeoutlaw on August 27, 2002, 12:33:41 AM
Whatup y'all, who do you think is the best rapper in the West?
By best I don't necessarily mean most lyrical just who is the best overall - style, lyrics, flow, beats, crew he rolls with/rhymes etc. I'd be really interested to see what y'all think.

Gotta be Quik for me.

Listen to "I Don't Wanna Party With You" off Balance and Options.

Anyone who doesn't think Q has lyrics out the ass AND a sick flow should be swayed by that tune. Classic.
